    I'm inclined to give him the rope.

    Best case scenario? He does what he says he will do. That at least shows a little integrity.

    IF this is just a way to "hopefully" ingratiate himself but he doesn't have the money then he can hang himself with the rope he wanted.

    This has next scam written all over it. Why, for any possible reason, would he want to mention his crypocurrency investing and put numbers with it, in a post regarding refunds. He is simply selling his next big scam.

    Yes, people pledge to games they want to see get made.  If you find that entertaining ... that's great I guess.  But if nobody pledges, the games never get made.  If enough people pledge, sometimes they do.  This is not hard to understand.  And despite what estimation you may have of your own intelligence, you can't predict the future.  Some of these games that people consider underdogs may succeed, your infantile circle jerk notwithstanding.

    If I could predict the future, that would make these things a lot less entertaining actually.  Caspien whining about how no publisher wants to get anywhere near him would have been a heck of a lot less interesting if I predicted it in advance for example.  And then there's things like Star Citizen TANKing (there's a pun in there, for those who don't know what's going on with Star Citizen right now) and it's like, the best entertainers in the world couldn't make this stuff up!  Nor could I have predicted it, and I'm glad I didn't!

    So far up to the plate, we have Shroud of Avatar, Star Citizen, Pantheon, Chronicles of Elyria, Crowfall, Ashes of Creation, etc etc.... you say some of them will succeed?  Well let's see!  Will any of them succeed?  Place your bets, ladies and gentlemen!  Er, but don't bet on SoTA.  I consider that one failed already since it reached launch and proceeded to disappoint pretty much everyone besides like, 3 people.  It sure was a hoot in doing so, though.  Sales of Lord British's blood, USED TO MAKE ART.  They friggin' monetized the death of Garriot's mother!  Like I said, entertainers can't make this stuff up!

    Crowfall just this month got a new $6 million cash infusion from outside investors, I'd say it will probably launch.
    crowfall is the one game in dev that I see launching in the not too distant future with a good start and footing.

    This game is just a cash grab. Go to the website and buy horses and castles for cash. $10 for a war pig. Get out of here.  I really had hopes for this game. What happened to just earning your gear in game and pay a sub fee? This cash shop/microtransaction shit is getting out of hand.

    Cash Grab.. right
    They are actually building a pretty sweet game. To do so, requires money. None of items being sold to this date give anyone an advantage. You can choose to spend extra money on the game or choose not to. The way I am seeing it, if we can get a company to build a solid game like crowfall is shaping up to be, let them get the money to do it. Nothing that I have seen tells me they are stealing money, or spending it on unnecessary things.

    I generally do not like cash shops very seldom have I spent a dime in one. If I really like a game/developer, and see something in a cash shop I think is cool, then I may drop a few $ to support the game. If a game has pay2win items of any sort, I simply will not play that game.

    You cannot fund an MMO without either sub fees (which have pretty much stayed the same price for 15 years) or via some form of cash shop/micro transactions.

    I really couldnt care any less about the xp or whatever people are going on about. I bought it at release, easily got around 100 hours game time in, and havent played in a month. I got my moneys worth out of a 60$ purchase. Cheap entertainment. If the x-pacs come with atleast a $1 and hour ratio of of gameplay, ill be happy. Its a game, play it, have some fun, go on about your business.

    I dont have a problem with the style they are going with. Feel it may help a bit less beefy pcs run the game, thus allowing a larger amount of consumers play the game. In todays ago, most Pvp oriented games need to be able to gather as large as player base as possible to stay healthy. This is just one more step in the direction allowing more potential customers, smoothly play the game.
