    AFAIK Mark does refunds in batches so the totals on the website probably went down because he processed a batch of refunds not because he reacted to one particular backer demanding a refund.
    That *generally* is what happens.

    But I don't think that's what happened in this specific case - based on the hostility in the initial post asking for the refund, and Mark's reply, and the account being closed around the same time the ticker went down.  Edit: also, I have yet to see an account disabled before the refund has been issued.

    I think Mark wanted to make this a solved problem ASAP, and did so.
    Any idea how much the funding ticker went down? Was mentioned as a significant amount, that could be $2K (20 people at $100 each) or some amount more. (Or less)


    It was about $2,000, maybe a bit more?
    What a pretentious baby.  I'm guessing they are better off without them.

    I enjoy playing WoW casually and keeping it in my mmo rotation. It's also one of the best mmos to play with my wife. We are always able to do 99% of the content together. She is really enjoying herself as a newer mmo player so that is enough for me to keep playing with her.

    Star Wars has gone full feminist/PC propaganda mode.
    The latest film was a disgrace !
    Screw that, I'm done with the franchise.
    GG WP Disney for totally ruining it.
    The MMO can go die as well. No tears will be shed.

    Huh, I really liked the new film. "oh well".

    I didn't. It was very boring and too preach-y and "changing stuff just because".

    Question:

    Why did they have to go to Canto Bight? What's wrong with Nar Shaddaa?

    Why Crait? What's wrong with Hoth / Belsavis / Ilum?

    Hosnian system...it got destroyed in TFA, but...wtf happened to Coruscant?

    Jakku...just...lol. Tatooine 2.0 .

    Why is The First Order retarded in battle tactics? Haven't they ever heard of Pincer maneuvers? Why did they have to tag after 4-5 corvettes(and some frigates) the ENTIRE movie?

    Rey...the most uninteresting character ever. Blondie(Man with no name) has more emotions / expressions than her and we're talking about CLINT(=a man with only angry / strict etc expressions)! Total miscast ; have you seen the range of Daisy's emotional expressions? wtf?

    Way to go to waste Boyega. On a completely unimportant Minority "romance"(that even caught F1nN off guard lol). Why was that important? Wouldn't F1nN + Poe gay romance be better? If we simply must have that...

    Also Hux. GG on making him completely unimportant. Just compare him in TFA and TLJ. ... ... ... Rian, why did you do this?
    You do understand that planets are not like city blocks.  They are millions of light years away from each other.  Why didn't  they go to Nar Shaddaa?  Probably because Canto was close and the other might of been very far away.  Same reason for Crait.  Not really sure why this even needs explaining.  
    But they took off from up to that point unknown planet and simply drifted in space. They could've been ANYWHERE! For all we know, they might've been next to Coruscant. See where I am getting with this? The choice to make another casino planet up was kinda lazy. REMEMBER! You don't know locations of Canto, Crait etc until Disney tells you. Understand now why I was upset for not reusing good ole material(s)?
    Each Galaxy consists of billions of stars with billions of planets and moons.  Star Wars is no different.  Seeing new planets is always something I look forward to.  In the SW universe there are thousands if not more occupied planets.  Why should they focus only on a handful?  Seems really boring.
    Fair enough. You prefer to explore the unknown while I prefer to explore the known. Just preferences.
    That's a fair point.  I agree.

    I've tried to understand the hype on this, and for the life of me i just can't. Talk about bullet sponge games, there's literally a class in this game that shoots water bullets at the monsters that they 'absorb' (takes very minimal damage overall) in fights that go on for what feels like an eternity. To each their own i guess, but this game most certainly was not meant for me












    It is much like the Souls bosses. It is a boss rush souls game essentially. Most souls games have bosses that last 15 minutes or so (The usual length of boss fights in MH). Bullet spongey implies that enemies just have more health for the sake of having more health, but that is not how MH works. Monster hunter bosses have mechanics tied to breakable pieces on there body, once you break these, the mechanics are lessened or removed entirely. Most bosses past early game have some pretty complex mechanics that you have to learn. I think calling them HP sponges is a bit disingenuous, as that would imply every boss is tank and spank. If you like souls games you are pretty much going to almost certainly like MH. People like the very sophisticated,varied, gameplay mechanics (each weapon is basically a different game) as well as the challenge. That is the main reason people enjoy it.









    You can try to explain it, and I get what you're attempting to point out, but it just doesn't 'feel' that way to me. This feels nothing like a DS game, and the fights in MH feel extremely uneventful. If that's what bullet spongey seems to imply to you, then that is what it is I guess, but that's not how I'd define bullet spongey. When a mob is absorbing bullet after bullet after bullet after (you get it ...) for a half hour, that's just ridiculous. Maybe I've just been around and seen too much to appreciate MH, but breaking off pieces of the mob to expose vulnerabilities has been around for ages and offers nothing new, and I don't find the mechanics to be 'complex'. Maybe you do, and more power to you. As I said, to each their own ...






    You can't feel what something is like until you play it. That is like saying you think a movie is the worst movie ever after having never seen it. Also, acting all high and mighty with a dismissive "I have seen it all so I am above that" just because you have a strong opinion on a thing a ton of people enjoy that other people don't share does not make your opinion any more valuable.


    I have played it ... and talk about dismissive attitudes, wowsers. Go to bed, you're drunk



    Considering how uninformed your posts have been, you clearly have not. Yes, I absolutely will dismiss opinions from people who have not played the game, as that is not a valid opinion. That is what any reasonable human being would do. Dismissing a whole game as "beneath you" is dismissing people based on their valid opinions.
    Feels similar to the launch of Mass Effect: A.  So many experts that had long bullshit reviews on a game they literally didn't play, but saw some twitch video for a few mins so they now had a greater opinion on the game than someone who played for 100+hrs.
