In light of the recent Kickstarterversary, and the planned launch in S2 2019*  I thought I'd reshare this July 2017 State of Elyria message. (Remember when?)

What's truly remarkable is how little progress they've made and seemingly have actually gone backwards on graphics and playable game systems.

    Had a giggle at their "Cone of Uncertainty". Must be one hell of a thing.

    History.  There's no denying it.  I'm certain a white knight will be along shortly to give you stacks of LOLs and WTFs.  Meanwhile, a less-than-reputable 'Agree' is all I can offer.

    This has been a mess from inception. Anyone still interested in this crap has some issues.

    There's a difference between interested and a believer.  It is totally interesting watching the events unfold.

    Lets just hope we're all alive when that day comes cause at this rate, it might hit beta in another 15-20 years.

    By that time OSRS will get a graphics upgrade and look better.

    @Kyleran Why start with the 2017 update?  Why not go back to the start when he vehemently argued that his Dec 2017 LAUNCH date was realistic and he had Gantt Charts!!  Because that is really where the circus started. 


    But in all seriousness... as long as people continue to give him millions of dollars to develop what sounds like their dream game (on paper and in concept art) why should he really try to get to launch? Or Beta? Or even Alpha?  IMHO CoE is a game that currently promises to be all things to all people but once people are actually starting to get inside the game they will realize how different reality is.  So why risk that when folks can apparently be strung along indefinitely?

    There definitely seems to be some kind of "long game" being played here.  When will Whales learn?
