    I use words like "Potentials" cause it really has a lot, if you don't see it it's because you haven't played it enough or didn't have the chance to run into someone that could show it to you. "Needs polilsh" and "Not launched" cuz these are facts.
    Can you honestly name a game that does NOT have "potential"? 

    You also say the game is "not launched" but what does that really mean?  Isnt that just a word since they are not wiping the server anymore and the cash shop is open?  Honestly, the word play used by todays game industry is getting completely ridiculous.  If your game is for sale on steam, there are no wipes and the cash shop is open, how is it not launched?  Will more content be added in the future, if that is how you define "launched" then World of Warcraft is not launched yet since they are always adding new content.

    You talk about facts, let me give you a real fact.  Over 40,000 people purchased this game from steam and yet yesterday, which was Sunday and a peak play day for video games, only saw a bit over 200 players in the game at its peak, that is less than one percent.  Is that really the mark of a quality game?

    really you're basing your facts on steam......... roflmao not used steam to login..... must be well over a year, not many that I know still use steam to login. Go get some real evidence 
    Some real evidence ? Well, the devs refused to give any numbers. NONE what so ever.  They also refused to put a players count on their main page SOTA.com .  Oh and Chris Spears also said they had around 1000 players.  Dude..1000, not 5K , not 50K..    Anyhow, the game sucks and we don't need steam to know it.   Maybe YOU could provide us a real evidence ? You must have some if you don't want to beleive those numbers on steam... No?                                                  http://www.mmorpg.com/shroud-of-the-avatar/columns/shooting-solo-1000011646#vanilla-comments                                                                            
    From Chris:
    The majority of our audience is NOT on Steam and instead just plays through our website and Steam was an after thought that represents about 20% of our audience.
    200 X 20% = 1000  And If you log in.. you will hardly beleive that number.

    That guy is so funny. ( Klash2001) The exact same attitude that the devs got about this game.  It not us , it's you the gamer!  We did such a great job!!  All of you on steam are wrong! The  MMORPG forum is also wrong! Any website talking shit about our game is wrong!!  But .. but you can look at our forum to see how right we are!  Eh you, did you say something bad about our game ?  Berek, BAN this guy ASAP!!  

    We're so good......

    The part where they download FREE art assets from the Unity asset store and then sell them for $20 in the game is just appalling. If these developers have no problem doing that, then they sure as heck have no problems doing any other unethical business practices.

    People place art assets on the asset store for free to get their work recognized. These are talented people just starting out on their art careers and are trying to get their names out there and show their work. For Portalarium to just take it and sell for their own profit is so amazingly unethical that it honestly makes me sick to my stomach.

    If these are the kind of people you want to support with your money, then by all means do it. But dont come back later crying about how greedy and corrupt the game industry is after you helped to support that kind of behavior.
    Which assets were those, and I'll look into it.

    The ones I know of either weren't free or were significantly reworked/re-rigged.

    Like this one?

    Tell me, how  much work they put on that one?

  • Shroud of the Avatar - Offline is On - MMORPG.com

    1. This game is a mess
    2. It is a cash grab
    3. Grindy 
    4. Boring
    5. Dead with less than 200 or 300 players playing the game.
    6. The devs are banning left and right and soon as they can.
    7. Any excuses are good for a begothon. 
    8. The cash shop is a freaking joke 
    9. They are selling items $20 when they got it for free.
    10. Chris Spears has insulted most of the players , even MMORPG.com.
  • How to milk $hroud of the Avatar.

    We will be having a special mini-telethon around Lord British’s birthday. Now the birthday excuse to milk the game once more. It's only a mini begothon tho.  This include a complete schedule of developer Deep Dives, answers to your gameplay questions, community activities, prize giveaways, sales on items, and more!
    Really devs? Again?
