  • 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.

    Today's weekly update stream mentioned the next announcement is Beta. They aren't quite ready yet however. Within 2 weeks I would hope but it's likely a combo of getting the code in place along with aligning the new hires and team structure.

    I'm not sure what the 3rd announcement is about which is after the Beta announcement. MJ stated that he is aware the backers are adamant about getting a beta date the company can stick with and that is their goal.
    The announcement of the projected Beta 1 start date should be next week or soon after. I expect the actual date to be multiple months from then.

    A BattleRoyale game is launching on SpatialOS soon that touts 400+ player battles that look good. I think that is going to put a bit of pressure on CSE to get their engine done and out there for people to see, and if not it should.
    I don't see why that would put any pressure on CSE. Battleroyale is really a completely different genre than CU's RvR. Merely having several hundred players involved in a battle doesn't make a game a direct competitor to CU.

  • CU big announcement Thursday Jan 18th

    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.

  • "Unchain" this game from being PVP only

    Could always be added after release ... like a game goblin army invasion or some such calamities ... random orcish zergs terrifying citizens and whatnot 
    Mark will need to be very careful about adding PvE after launch. There are quite a few backers who will be intensely angry if there is a repeat of DAOC's TOA expansion which added a large amount of effectively mandatory PvE in order to remain competitive in RvR.
