  • Chronicles of Elyria: Wherefore Art Thou? - MMORPG.com

    I fail to imagine a sustainable business model where-in your whales, the lifeblood of your game, see thousands of digital purchases go up in flames and don’t rage quit. MMORPGers have long quit games for far, far less.

    Exactly.

    This has been my concern about this and for that matter, most other donation-tiered KS MMORPG projects.

    "It's not a permanent advantage. They can loose it all" flies in the face of how players have behaved in actual real playable games forever. It's either a lie or it's one of the dumbest and most unsustainable business models ever imagined. I suspect it's a lie.

    You can call this beta all you want....this game is still in the alpha stage.
    Semantics.

    MJ is developing this old school style. The whole idea of people who are not employees or friends and family of employees getting to test an alpha is a modern day marketing scheme popularized by KS games.

    This is an early beta by the simple fact that it's being tested by regular players.

    Betas can last a year or more and a hell of a lot can change in that time if it's being done properly.

    Is it just me or is everyone else hearing double commentary echo in that video?

  • Do you ever get addicted to one game at a time or rotate through games?

    Brutal honesty: I struggle with anxiety-induced, ADD-like symptoms and am trying to find a medicine that works for me.  It's made it hard the past few years to stick with anything. (Before anyone jumps me as an attention-monger: I share this on these forums because it costs me nothing to do so anonymously and there's a chance someone else may read this and go "Wow, so I'm not the only person who struggles with this after all.")

    And this may get sideways glances, but the best medicine I've found to help my racing mind has been cannabis.  So when I'm stocked up, I can focus long enough on a game to really dive in.

    As such, I voted both depending upon other factors.
    You should move to Canada. We legalized it in the whole country a couple of weeks ago :)

    I don't smoke much weed any more and haven't for years but when I did it had the effect on me of making me concentrate just way too much on small things. If you ever found yourself reading and re-reading the same page in a book for 15 minutes you'd know what I mean.

    Back on topic...

    I'm typically married to just one game at a time but I do fool around with others.
