    So you're telling me someone spent $10,000 to be a temporary king all for the story aspect? mmmkay.
    whether it was for the story aspect, to support the studio, to stroke their epeen, or any other individual or combination of reasons, no monarch can expect to hold onto their throne for the entire storyline

    this has been made abundantly clear by the studio on a number of occasions
    Yeah the mystical ways of removing kings.
    I pointed out back then that assassinating a king behind fortified walls may not be so easy.

    I was told assassination is a narrow minded concept. There are other ways, complicated ways, abstract ways.

    No one could actually tell me what that would look like however because it's all just bla bla.
    "mystical ways of removing kings" - Why do you think are they mystical. Don´t tell me because we can´t play and know it yet, because the game is still developed, pls.

    "I pointed out back then that assassinating a king behind fortified walls may not be so easy." - Aside you seem to point to a lot of things. (Reminds me of my 1y old nephew here :3 ) Why do you think it "may" be not so easy? Do you think a stealthy assassin is not made for getting behind fortified walls?

    "I was told assassination is a narrow minded concept." - uhuh.. You´ve been told. Rly? And do you know why the teller told you that? Is there a reason?

    "There are other ways, complicated ways, abstract ways." - "Mystical" indeed. Are there. Maybe you want to reveal those mystical ways to us?

    "No one could actually tell me what.." - How would it look like in the final game you mean? The game that still is under development. Ok, at least, it´s some kind of point.
    So it's ok for you to assume that Kings will be easily killable despite the game being nowhere finished, but for us to assume Kings will not be easily killable is absurd because the game is nowhere finished?

    I made the point that I highly doubt Kings at least those starting out due to being bought for $10,000 will probably not be easily killable. I made that point because I highly doubt Caspian would allow a $10,000+ backer to lose their seat of power so easily.

    Of course, we won't know till the game launches, but if those people do end up being killed in the first month, I'm going to laugh my ass off.

    @Rhoklaw That have been a discusion on the CoE forums quite some while ago. And yes, it appeals like a P2W first. But actualy it is no product you buy, but a thank you for giving the support to the game, meaning a king may "start" as such to build the "initial" story of the world. It will be no usual competition-to-the-top-game, but a game to play a story. Be it a story of a king or a story of a peasant. Former one will have far more troubles and responsibilities than the latter. It´s about stories, less about winning!

  • "Unchain" this game from being PVP only

    Why would Mark Jacobs make a game similar to the only PvP game ever worth playing ( DAoC )? That would be like Blizzard designing a new and updated version of WoW and no one wants that.
