    @GeezerGamer

    Does anyone like a pessimist even if they are right?
    I understand that you want to be positive. And you may not like the pessimism. However, if this is true, and I believe it is, then SBS it is possibly practicing shady business.
    But see, it's not True, until it happens, right now, it's nothing more then a pessimistic outlook, recited endlessly. Even if you agree with their prediction, it makes it no less pessimistic. And if someone is so sure something is going to fail, why not just walk away from it, why hang around and harp upon it endlessly?

    As for any truth, given that half their ramblings and objections revolve around tin foil hat mudslinging about ivory towers, and what have you, its like they are playing their own delusional fantasy game around this games development.

    Now, If you really look at it, it's more a cry for attention, they want to be head, they want this company to listen due to some self imposed feelings of importance and perhaps they were given a head nod for suggesting an idea that I would wager has already been around for a few decades, and suddenly feel they should have the power to shape the game as a whole, and perhaps got blown off when they pushed too hard, hence their "way forward" post they think is going to change the whole game.

    Now, If that is who you want to follow, be my guest, but.. for me. I like games, I enjoy playing games, and I look forward to new and fun games play. To me, CoE is not new in the sense of Online Games, it's more a return to old school MUDs, which I loved playing back in the day.

    But, this is just one of many games out there to me, so, I am not going to piss away my life tending an ear to the ramblings of pessimist, if that is what makes you happy and you want to cling that they are prophetic truth speakers, be my guest, but don't expect me to give that decision, or the words you cling to, any respect.

    If they end up being right.. Oh well. Guess Ill just have to play something else.. much like what  I am doing right now.. playing something else. So my life won't change, as such, I have no reason to humor such negativity.
    You're basically arguing that willful ignorance is alright as long as it comes with a positive mentality. But if you don't want to admit things because they are negative then how will you ever change or inspire the change you really want? People aren't pessimistic because they enjoy it, they're pessimistic because they have a vision of something that works better and want to see it realized.
    Accepting that if they say they have things under control, that they have things under control, is a whole lot better then running around like a chicken with head chopped off screaming the whole game is gonna die, when you really have no idea.

    Now, Don't let me stop you doing that.. but understand I am not going to take you seriously either.
    If you accept that they have things under control you might end up buying something from them and losing your money if they can't deliver, whereas running around like a headless chicken is free.

    Therefore I submit that panicking and running around like a headless chicken is the better alternative.

    I see you never heard the story of Chicken Little, See, making an ass of yourself may not cost money, but it is not free either.

    Now, look at things form my angle, I am given the choice between the word of someone on a form with no credentials to speak of, or the developer of the game itself.. which sounds like the most reliable bet to have a clue on what is really going on?

    If they say, this is just a set back, then.. maybe, it's just a set back.
    Sure, the developer of the game has the most knowledge of what is going on. But, that doesn't mean they are willing to share that info publicly. 

    Just because they have the inside knowledge does not make them a reliable source. The owner of the company has everything to gain if they succeed and everything to lose if they fail.

    You also have to look at the the track record of the company. Have they been up front and honest so far?

    I would argue some random guy on the forums who has observed many other KS projects and has 0 skin in the game may actually be a more reliable and less biased resource. 

    My understanding is that Soul Bound Studios, and Caspian directly, has been very transparent and open with their community so far, keeping them up to date on the good and the bad, far more then a lot of other game companies have done or do at all, hence why so may people seem to know so much about what they are doing and get to sit around an play arm-chair developer with them. 

    Now, anyone who is in fact informed would know that when things go bad, companies cut off communications, put up veils of silence, and only allow PR reps to deal with the public as a form of damage control.

    Case in point, Caspian did not need to make any mention of their deals with SpartalOS, or their decision to no use it, he could have sat on that for a long as he liked, he could have kept that hidden away till release date, and then simply not added their logo to the product page. He was under no obligation to say what was going on between them, and, truth be told, if this was going to be really bad, or he was trying to hide things, he would have simply said nothing at all.

    But he was open, transparent, and made things clear to his supporters what was going on, everything opposite of what someone who was trying to hide something would do, and for that, you rip upon him, call him a thief, say his company will fail, and accuse him of lying about what is going on.

    Oh, well, gosh you must be the voice of reason.

  • A true D&D MMO is missing

    DDO is your best choice for a good Dungeons and Dragons MMO (Not sure how it is today, I stopped playing years ago)

    But, when you think about it, DnD, was never an Open World Game, when you played with your friends, some other group of players didn't come along and enter your campaign, kill your mobs, steal your loot, and save the town, you had your own private instance that you played in, and other players had theirs.

    So the Instance Based set up that DDO uses, fits well with how DnD was played right from the table top.

  • A solution to Playing Killing (PK'ing)

    I think the players that do not want to deal with the game, as the the game is, ought to leave.

    Problem solved.

  • MMORPGs dead? Nonsense! This is the most exciting time for upcoming games that I can remember.

    I have to agree with the OP, there are more MMO's out now then there have ever been, many have top quality content, graphics, and mechanics.

    So where's the video showing off the OP's superior video game skill?

    If you guys think games are so easy.  Would like to see some video of it.
    See, I don't get it ?
    Games are so child like a 4 to 7 year old could play play them. 
    Sure this could be a players style.  To each their own.

    But because I'm calling games like they are, people assume I think I'm a great player.... What does my skill have to do with anything ?
    It means you are getting owned by 4 year olds...
