  • Prediction : Beta imminent

    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.
  • The Number 1 goal; what it might mean.

    So yeah all the references to massive fights in the interviews that came out for the new investment caught my eye too.

    It's possible what Mark means is just that supporting those fights technically (at good or at least playable frame rates etc) is the prime directive. He has also said on numerous occasions that the game should support all play styles including not just massive battles but group fights and soloing.

    Still until the game is much further along in development to where we can all see the combat and world mechanics in action it is kind of hard to envision how it will have fun 1000 player fights and yet also be fun to solo in. The combat pace and TTK needed for the former would seem to be way too slow for the latter. Mark's answer is that he'll accomplish it by "clever design". We'll see.
  • CU big announcement Thursday Jan 18th

    Iselin said:
    I've been checking in on the CU site every hour today.....well, since 9am US anyway. Nothing yet, but I remain excited!
    Look elsewhere on this site.

    I'm a bit annoyed. I can't actually find an announcement anywhere. I mean, if you are announcing something....announce it! All I can see is the interview on this site, and a separate interview on MOP, and neither link to an announcement. It's not on the official site either. Am I missing something?

    So, this announcement seems to be $7.5m in additional investment. That's obviously great news! Even better is confirmation that the design of the game isn't changing one bit, nor is the business model (though I noticed they now refer to it as the "launch" business model). 

    But, in this interview, Mark says this is the second of 4 big announcements. The final one he said will be the timeline (beta + release dates) which we'll get within 30 days. Anyone know what the first big announcement was?
    The first announcement (not considered big by CSE) was the hiring of a new lead animator, a new community manager, and a new producer. See the January 5 item here http://camelotunchained.com/v3/category/news/

    There's no sign the game needs money right now. More investors wouldn't come close to being better than Beta 1 for me. If anything, it would suggest that the game actually was in money trouble. I don't think that will be it.

    Mark already ruled out re-acquiring DAOC during Friday's stream.

    Also you can rest easy about EA buying CSE. Not happening.
