    I dont see the point of having four wings at all, not in a visual way or in a functionable way. Why? It isnt even cooler than a two winged falkon?!

    Maybe they can make a game for that bird to live in?

    The team that does videos is different than the team that actually creates these models. They might as well have developed 40 creatures in between this post and the previous one.

    Now don't get me wrong, I don't think the guy has the right management skills to complete this game and wow the entire community. I still think it will be far before we can actually see this game out and most importantly, this being a fun game to play but I don't see any reason in blaming the guys making the videos and not the team that is responsible for the actual game development.

    I think they are trying to compete with Soulbound Studios' Chronicles of Elyria.

    Ill never understand why people think that what the dev's decide to show is all they have been working on and the only thing theyve completed in x amount of time. Happens when any developer decides to show anything.

    I'm not defending AoC and the showcasing they have put forth but ffs use some critical thinking.

    Um... because in all likelihood they'd show off something more than the umpteenth animal model then...? Especially as a crowdfunded title that's highly dependent on impressing people to keep the funding flowing...

    I don't think this is a good sign at all. Since it's been a year now of showing off horses, armadillos and other models like it.

    At first when I read this title, I thought they were finally showing off a zone or something...

    My SWTOR referral link for those wanting to give the game a try. (Newbies get a welcome package while returning players get a few account upgrades to help with their preferred status.)

    The title of an article is up to MMORPG.com im sure.

    I understand they are crowdfunded and they rely largely and almost entirely on that crowd to fund their game, so you want to appease them as you would some sort of share holder in your company. The reality of this is, backers of crowd funded projects are not share holders, they are donators. The company is not obligated to show us anything, in fact. So, you didnt really address my post's point. Which was mostly focusing on that if they arent showing you want you want (you as in general not you personally) then they must not be making the game at all or making any progress. Which to me, doesnt seem to connect the dots.

    I have been following AoC loosely and i get it, they have shown nothing but animal models for however long, and thats not really progress or appeasing to some peoples undying need to be in the loop of development when they arent a part of the company. Pissing and moaning wont change it.

    But my point here was never whether or not what they are doing is or isnt good for their development. It's that people take any information that's released and chalk it up to WOW.. thats ALL youve done in x months? Thats an unreasonable conclusion to jump to in my opinion.

    I follow pantheon fairly close, and their backers do it too on the forums. When the written news letters came out people would scoff at what they put out like, huhmph pft hmph pffph seriously this is it you guys? Back to an aforementioned point, we as the consumer are not obligated to receive any of this information, regardless of funding method. None of this is to say that you shouldnt provide detailed insights to development of a crowdfunded game, i believe you should, you definitely should.

    All we get are more developer videos talking about all the work being put into the game. Really? Let's see then.
