Complete falsehood, I can't say I'm surprised though, as this is a typical response from you. You seem to be just as trollish as anyone else, you're always out and about trolling those you would label trolls to try to delegitimize their truths about your game. I have never been banned from your forums. One need only look to see. Although, I'm sure you're petty enough to do so as you can't take criticism well and seem to have a child like enjoyment of trying to quiet people when you don't like what they have to say. Much like a child that can't get another to play their way, so they take their ball and go home... You seem incapable of taking criticism of the poor mechanic decisions of the game that involve your making. I also don't post every week here about your game. All people here are doing is telling people our experience with Sota. If your game was booming and had people actually playing it, you probably wouldn't be so bothered by negative feedback and posts about how terrible it is.catnipgames said:@Voidfarer, Welcome to MMORPG, land of the completely unmoderated forums where the same half dozen trolls who were banished from the forums years ago trash the game each week! Same guys every time. Look at Ice-Queen's message history.
Hmm, it's working for me, here's one of the posts of starr from the second link. Some guy got him going and he really got sarcastic and childish in his response.MightyUnclean said:Ice-Queen said:Aye this is typical behavior from he and I've seen Starr as well, bickering with posters is pretty common. They don't seem to mind them doing it as it's been going on for years now. No idea why they call people trolls and themselves troll as well. If it was just your average poster no one would say anything really but a game companies devs are usually more professional. I think this game is the only one where I've seen this really.MightyUnclean said:
If this is true, I just lost the last, tiny shred of respect I may have had left for SotA. A developer gets on these forums, insults the forums in general, calls specific users trolls because of their views of the game...I just find that hard to believe. Surely, if this is true and the heads of the studio found out, he would be at the least reprimanded and possibly fired? Would they allow someone in the wild representing their company like that?
I'm sure Rune_74 could point you to a ton of Chris's unprofessional posts, I know there's a list somewhere with screenshots of a lot of them out there somewhere but I'm not going to go digging to find them. Here's just a couple.
Starr going back and forth with someone here.
Second link doesn't work for me. Why, oh why did I back these clowns? It only cost me $50, thank goodness. Compared to most backers, I got off light. I know why...pure nostalgia for the greatness that was Lord British in the 80's. SotA has turned out to be my biggest disappointment in over 30 years of gaming. I need to learn to let my memories be just that.
It is incredible! I did it Tariva! As you suggested I did some really honest introspection.
I did not even realize that for over three years we have been perpetrating an amazing cover up! We have managed to make people think Richard has been working on the project this whole time! We even had our own team fooled, including me! Making videos, generating bugs, making tasks, going to meetings, attending daily standups, posting those standup notes to the forums, doing interviews with press, etc. Lots of work to make it just appear as if he is working on the game instead of actually working on the game.
That makes so much more sense than the simpler explanation that he is actually working on the game! It is way easier to believe that he's not working on the game at all instead of that sometimes we don't work on the schedule in the exact order he wants due to other priorities.
Your theory is so much more plausible! Thank you so much for bringing this to light! You are an incredible sleuth! The world is grateful to you for your deductive powers and dedication to spreading the truth.
How does this game compare to SotA?
There is pvp in the game right now, you need to flag yourself in order to pvp though. The way it's set up, if you want to pvp just flag yourself and go looking for other pvp'ers. No one is forced to pvp if they don't want to. If you're looking for something like Pre-Trammel UO, it's not like that at all. As someone said above, they learned their lesson from UO, when it cost them customers. If you're looking for a free for all, kill all the noobs, you won't get that in SotA. There are pvp zones in the game that are entirely pvp, but they're barren wastelands right now. There's a handful of people at the moment that run pvp events currently. So far it's not a very popular aspect of the game, I rarely see anyone pvp flag except the handful of same people running about. They do have more plans for pvp before and after release though.
