  • Did other games celebrated 420 because I know of one that sold POT upgrades

     If any of you 4/20 debbie downers have celebrated St.Patrick's day while living anywhere outside of Ireland, you can respectfully go stub your toe.. Thanks in advance. 

    Edit: This whole thread is LOL

    If anything this thread has exposed the disfunction in both the COE and MMORPG communities.
     Nothing wrong with this forum, they know we call developers on their bull. They may not appreciate that we often call it out before they have a chance to write a story about it, but in the end if they had a problem with it, they'd say so. 

     Not everyone who took it upon themselves to throw a bit of mud on COE in this thread does so for every game. In fact most of us support many games. The thing is lots of us have been around here for almost 17 years in one form or another, and not only this forum but many. 

     That's a lot of time to learn how to spot the bad eggs, and why they spoil.. Also, despite what others may have you believe, some of us do actually work in this industry for a living...

    Because that is the point here. It is no more than people playing self-righteous, all-knowing armchair developers.

    People still make bold claims,  conjectures and even dare to question competence and tell others how they should run development and their company.

    Based on what? Uneducated eyes, false reasoning, lack of any required proficiency, data or just general clue about industry or projects of this size...right....

     That's funny because the way I recall it, you're usually the one who doesn't understand how a development cycle works. You've made that quite evident in the past.

    CU was called vaporware for a while as well, people claimed it would never happen, in fact you can find the same pessimism and hubris here on the forums regarding CU if you look, ye here it is, looking like it's coming to life after all.

    Funny how that works.

    Good thing these formites don't really affect the game, if they did, no game would get made.
    Could you please site your source where someone in this thread said that CU was vaporware?
    learn to read.

    I never said someone from this thread, I said on these forums. And here you go, a whole topic about it.
    Funny thing, I just checked that entire thread, not one mention if vaporware.

    I did see reference to the term evaporate, (as in, player interest) perhaps thats what you read?
    There were also no CU backers coming on the thread just to bully, insult, and badmouth the people who were frustrated with how long it was taking to develop the game (which is what happens in every CoE thread I have read). 

    Interestingly the thread in question appears to have been written by a CoE zealot in an effort to lift CoE's image by dissing another game in development.

     BINGO!

    Ugh, bad example, only game I ever crowd funded, promised in 2 years, coming up on 5 with no promised beta date, much less a release date.

    You know what they've been doing lately? Crash the server testing and making significant progress on "willow tree" mechanics. (True story, showcased the latter)

    I saw some one praise CU for sending weekly updates on what's been completed vs what work is outstanding. Same smokescreen Roberts Industries uses (might as well follow "the Master's" lead)

    What they don't say, and what really is the only that matters after 5 plus years is "WHEN" will the remaining work be finished?

    I'm not expecting COE to be able to meet the same standard, but in all fairness to Caspian, while he may not have been correct in the past, he's still got the nerve to publish new target dates, even if they too are likely aggrssive.  Can't say the same for MJ or Chris.
     Yeah the difference is CU actually provides daily streams of them doing actual work. No other kickstarter game is doing that. As well as experience in how to move forward without looking like failures. Walsh can keep giving out those "aggressive dates" that will never be met. Meanwhile CU will continue finishing the game, and soon enough have a playable beta out. The engine work is mostly complete, now they are fleshing out the game world, as you saw with the stream about the trees etc. Funny how you tried to push that as a bad thing.  Not that I'd expect otherwise..  

    Edit: Also at least Mark has the balls to come here to this forum and talk to us like actual people, instead of sending his little goons with 20 posts to do it for him.
