No, I said he most likely made the post in response to a small malicious minority, whose comments you conveniently choose to ignore. Clearly you think context is overrated.Slapshot1188 said:The person I responded to stated that he doubted Caspien ever made such statements so I provided them. Don't ask questions to which you don't want answers.
This is really true. Sometimes publishers get a bad rap for just making the hard, but necessary choices.Azaron_Nightblade said:This is pretty much the reason why traditionally MMOs have publishers to keep devs on track. Without someone to tell them "No, you have a deadline to focus on instead of getting sidetracked" they are all over the place. :PThomas2006 said:Don't you just love it when feature creep is so real that the core of the game isn't even getting attention / its base features added anymore.
I really do not think these guys can pull it off. It shows by adding little things like this instead of focusing 100% on the features and core they already have. Instead they are just jumping all over the place adding little easy things to make it look like stuff is getting done.
Word of advice is to focus on the core features you already have and get that in before adding even more fluff to that long list you already have. Otherwise this game feels like a Greed Monger 3.0 happening all over.
MadFrenchie said:Video games are experiences that take us outside the confines of reality. Nobody (or almost nobody) wants to experience class stratification in a friggin' video game just cause they have to watch the rich ride their yachts in real life.
This is pure hyperbole regarding the developers intentions AGAIN! Have an issue with Kickstarter sure but don't start badmouthing people with baseless accusations like that.MadFrenchie said:
These developers are choosing to forego or supplement those funding attempts by approaching a segment they are well aware they can mislead unlike traditional investors.
As I have already said an investor is looking to make a profit, not simply whether the project is technically feasible. The return has to justify the risk. The investor will also look at a range of investments and pick the best ones. Even if they thought this project could turn a tidy profit they might be opting for other investments that return the same profit but at lower risk. I don't think you understand how financial decisions are made.MadFrenchie said:No, I've actually said here (I think) and other places (I know) that in some cases it may not be a malicious dishonesty, but an unrealistic outlook. However, as @Iselin mentioned above me, that's the reason there are traditional investors. Those folks, generally, are much better equipped to spot the malicious dishonesty as well as the unrealistic dreamer. Consumers don't have the expertise, the experience, nor the resources to evaluate the project on the same level. And developers know that.StaalBurgher said:No you are saying their intentions are dishonest. You have nothing to base that on.
