If you`ve got a dollar and you spend 29 cents on a loaf of bread, you`ve got 71 cents left. But if you`ve got 17 grand and you spend 29 cents on a loaf of bread, you`ve still got 17 grand. There`s a math lesson for you.--Steve Martin

  • I believe it went expired and then quickly bought by someone. Otherwise, just divergence-online without the .wix works.   On a final gesture of good well, here is just a small token of a recommendation. "Online" is overused anyways, drop Diverge…
  • Since it has been said twice... "If you can't say something nice..." apparently you haven't been to F13.Net.  Give that site a spin with Divergence.

  • Oh do I love drama... I thought I drop back in, though I did think I was done... but the drama is soooo irresistible. But very well.  Actually, I am quite confident that the Kickstarter will succeed, even if it remains as it is to the very last day…
  • Essentially, as long as realistic expectations are sought for this niche game, then the Kickstarter campaign should be successful.  If lessons have been learned from the past years, then the game should do well. Bare in mind, this is a niche market…
  • Oh yeah... the NDA and secrecy... I did get a big laugh years ago about that and Big World (... just until the check clears...). Can pretty much get around the secrecy by just reviewing the forums there and at Esenthel. Seems that is the case of u…
  • In other words, Welcome to a limited Tech Demo of the Esenthel Engine.
  • Quite right. Its never their fault, any fault is due to circumstances beyond their control or because of someone else, or because of this or that... MMO's are a service, not a product; which require a good level of customer service.  That attitude…
  • Golly Gee, someone rezzed my old thread... And I am surprised this is still going. Well people, before getting all excited, you all better investigate the past as to what happened.  There is more to this story than what I posted years ago.  It all…
  • I happened to forgot, sorry, silly me, but there are indeed whackjobs that are doing more than just talk.  Being a whackjob does mean that such people have creativitity and imaginative traits.  And they are indeed taking matters into their hands. …
  • Originally posted by BadgerSmaker ... And there is a note on the transfer from closed server process from Gourney-SME: "We have to cycle through the 12 servers that are closed... We have a single server that we load, restart and shutdown each ti…
  • Originally posted by jotull ..there are some whackjobs out there and one day one of these twisted people are going to do more than just talk. Old new, events that you are implying have already happened, for example the murder in Korea over t…
  • Originally posted by Gajari Can you explain the "missed its launch window" comment? I don't get it.  The launch window referred to is of releasing a game when a movie is about to be released. Either get the game out before the movie to promote/…
  • Originally posted by Samhael This is pretty good... this is the first MMO that -- when announced -- has already missed its launch window!   And that is why this will be an Epic Fail.
  • Originally posted by Erythrocyte ... Just an observation, I'm not against or for slamming SOE or SWG, it's all interesting reading :-). Well, the more popular Sci-Fi IP virtual world was litterially destroyed, and to some, by The Empire, in w…
  • Originally posted by urbanos Within five months swg has lost:  Millbarge, Undertoad and Adeptstrain. The end is near? Very much so. With a down economy and a new up-to-date Sci-Fi, well Star Wars IP from a well known company to arrive.  Thoug…
  • Originally posted by BadgerSmaker It's somewhat unfair to trash SoE for this, Customer Services were quietly and altruistically providing a chargeable service to players for free for as long as they could.  The announcement that charges were now not…
  • Originally posted by TUX426 Here's their reason: TSR-JamisonW We have to bill you here on our side of the operation, then send it to in-game.  We would do the transfers ourselves like all the others, but the servers aren't turned on.  That's why…
