  • Public service announcement: LOL does not stand for "disagree".

    A couple things.

    1. lols are hard to get.

    2. Gdemami is your friend for this.

    3. I never lol posters I don't like.

    I see it both ways, either something was chuckle funny or a comment is laughable, either way I'll lol it. When people lol my comments I figure they get a chuckle out of it either way. I get great satisfaction knowing that Gdemami is a happier dude because of my ridiculous comments.

    #IceAgeWasRight

    Good job MMORPG for reporting this scam.
    Hey look! It's another news STORY and INFORMATION about a game that people used to play and might be interested to read about! 

    Information is power and the intelligence of our readers proves that they absolutely understood what this "project" was. Kudos to our discerning readers. :) You always amaze me. :)
    So let me get this straight. You supply facts and information and then I have to use critical thinking skills to formulate my own sound judgement? Why are you guy forcing me to grind and do stuff? Shouldn't you be telling me what to think? :lol:

  • Massively Article discusses bringing expectations "back down to earth"

    Do not forget the 500k he already put into it and the paypal funder after KS. 
    Realistic numbers for MMO developments are in the tens of millions unless you scale way back on art and features. This game advertises not scaling back on either.

    Scaled back MMOs look like Shroud, Crowfall, and Project Gorgon. Those MMOs still cost more than a few million to produce.

    I think what puzzles people is how a relatively inexperienced team, at least with MMO production, expect to do what more experienced veterans and more well funded teams haven't been able to. How exactly do they plan on pulling that off?
  • Chronicles of Elyria - What's It Worth to You? - MMORPG.com

    "As with other crowd funded games the idea is/was that the people taking the most risk (that being Kickstarter people) do so because they get the most return for their hard-earned dollars."

    No Timothy Tierless it was not that way. The idea was, for quite a while, that Kickstarter projects would deliver the full production prototype, production model, end result and that was it. The concept was to help fund a project that would otherwise not be done. The reward tiers were based on how much some helped fund that project.

    It's the game industry: those indie devs, those veterans of previously popular projects, and of course all sorts of opportunists (sometimes all the same people) corrupted and twisted into their "milk as much as you can" mindset. The game industry is horrible for it. Think of what you pay for an annual MMORPG subscription, dlc, and cash shop. It's ridiculous to think that any game has delivered $200+ in real value. Yet, the industry has this mindset to continually milk an existing project with ongoing fees and respins of existing stuff.

    I only made it about three quarters of the way through the article because after a point I got lost in why it was okay that trying to milk as much money as possible in the most convoluted way possible is something I should not only accept but embrace. No thanks.
  • We Paid to Win & Lost - MMORPG.com



    why is pay to win a huge problem in gaming? the world always under pay2win, even in sports. Look at the olympics, rich nations get more medals. Life isnt fair, stop crying about "fair"



    Pretty much how I feel about it. There are people who have to take the bus and people who drive exotic cars. I'm not going to yell "P2W!!" as they drive past me. I may not like it that someone got hired for a really good position because they are a relative of the boss, but that's life.
    I usually yell, "Rich bastard!" as they pass by me in my Hyundai Sonata. :lol:

    This is going to explode in the hugest way. You know when people had silly queue numbers to buy BfA? That's going to happen and then the login servers will crumble under the load. Not a lot may stick around but I'm pretty sure there are at least 10 MILLION people who might be a wee curious.
