Nope. Crowd funding does not legally exist. So you have to fit it into one of the two that does exist: Donation or purchase. They take tax, ergo, purchase.

I guess there is not even a consensus on that.
Let it go. Unless someone discovers that true magic exists, Pinocchio will never become a real boy. Lets them them have the dream in peace though.sgel said:Wow that's a pretty amazing conclusion you came up with.. EVERYTHING can be seen as progression.Babuinix said:Lol it feels like Im trying to explain a toddler how to assemble legos and they keep trying to eat it...
It doesnt matter what kind of progression you focus on. There's many of them depending on how a gamer has fun playing.
For a player that has fun customizing its avatar being able to change shirt, pants whatever can feel as progresssion. Progressing in the goal of attaining the prefered look for its avatar...
Every thing that changes your avatar beyond it's default starting gear/skill/lvl/status can be seen as progression...
Hope that was clear and simple enough lol
Installing SC and actually running it is progression.
Managing to complete a single mission without bugging is progression.
Getting anything above 15FPS is progression.
In fact SC has more open-ended progression mechanics than any other game.
No need to actually build mechanics/content around vanity progression like Arenanet or dungeon/raid progress mechanics like Blizzard or other devs.
The problem right now is that Bitcoins are worth a lot more than they actually cost to create*, if you have a large enough setup to weigh out the randomness.Hulluck said:My question would be what's going on in with crypto currencies to influence this. cant blame people who think they might see an opportunity and taking a risk if that's. All this is news to me. First post I saw on this. Seems like somethign to waste a bit of time on reading about.
