    The video looks like a feminist garbage enforcing ugly women as leaders. Ok, I will let the girls to play this game.
    You know they say that sometimes people who are paranoid do have enemies. Sometimes however, they are just plain paranoid.

    Your level of Snake-oil Salesman has increased.

    So... were they removed from the referral program or not? It's not a tough question.

  • PC Gamer: " There's something strange about Ashes of Creation. "

    Furthermore,

    Intrepid Studios was absolutely honest and transparent with Kickstarter in regards to our rewards. As stated from KS they allow one time financial rewards.

     Appearently there was miscommunication about what our referral reward system does. It is a one time reward in the form of reward points for purchases. All Kickstarter funds are quarantined for development costs only. The rewards points that could be redeemed for cash rewards are not allowed for redemption until our launch, which will then use non kickstarter funds to fulfill these redemptions. 

    The issue for me is that PCGamer never reached out to me for clarifications of these things or even to get my response on their reporting. In addition to the misreporting. 

    Either way,

    This topic is now closed for me. I hope my transparency will shed light on this for you guys on mmorpg.com

    They really didn't claim to have 30 mil, it's a simple matter of misinterpretation in an interview. It was even clarified by the interviewer after the fact.
    Right. And the important detail totally lost in this thread is that $30 million sounds like a realistic amount for developing an indie MMORPG and it happens to be the amount that Steven used as his estimate of what is needed.

    I have absolutely no problem with casting reasonable doubt on KS project viability when the reasons for that doubt are based on reality. I'm not seeing that here.
    If he HAS $30M then I would agree, but you just admitted that as far as we can tell they do NOT have $30M in the bank.  Not having the money you admit you need would fall under the "reasonable doubt on KS project viability" would it not?

    If he HAS the $30M in the company's bank account (not his own) then I think it's very viable that this will get to a somewhat comprehensive launch.


    At this stage of the game? No. I could care less whether he has it in the bank or just has confidence he can get it. It's not like you need the $30 million all at once at the very beginning.

    You guys are reaching and nitpicking because he hasn't said anything outrageous about his plans for the game like Caspian has with CoE.

    All you've got is "show me the money and...umm... MLM is evil... yeah... so Greedmonger." It's beyond lame.
