    Yeah they're trumpeting their founders MMO cred. I did a ctrl+F page search on their page just to see if anyone happened to come from final fantasy but nada. Not that it really matters. Tuesday they're going to announce their Kickstarter and I assume present their whole plan and what not. Any estimates on how much money they're going to be asking for? I'll bet something like 1mil

    I was a bit over, they're asking $800k. Wow I'm shocked they already raised half of it. Looking over their stuff now.

    Mmorpg.com shows off some game play and explains a bit about the game.

    I'm cautiously optimistic, it sounds like a fun idea and I enjoy the art style so far. It's more akin to a strategy game overall than what we normally think of as an MMORPG.

    Ya, that's the vibe I'm getting too. I don't agree with some of the things said, like screwing your character up by picking the wrong stats (and the video presenter actually wanting that crap). While it will be interesting to see if a Minecraft PvP/Realm vs Realm game can succeed, I'm not sure there's a broad enough player base who will like the PvP enough to stick with it. Definitely a lot of stuff to sort out, before launch.

    like screwing your character up by picking the wrong stats
    Can probably thank the Diablo 2 and Path of Exile fanboys for this one. Nothing says fun like dumping dozens of hours into a character, only to find out you made a mistake early on and have to do everything over again because resets either don't exist or are fucking rare/expensive.

    In ARPGs it's okay to fuck up your character because the game is rather easy to get into/lvl up etc but as far as an MMO is concerned... that has no place in the genre lol being able to reset stats/skills isn't fucking handholding lol

    I dunno, leveling isn't really the hard part in MMOs nowadays. And complaints relative to that aren't what I'd call rare.

    Looks like they will meet the goal easily. They added stretch goals and a schedule for adding more available early-bird specials for buying the game at ~$30

    Also here's another Kickstarter they are pimping:

    They're fully funded and then some at $900k. Now to wait for 2 years to play the game.

    Some great concepts but just screams of us eventually seeing same shit another year/mmo type of thing.... Will keep an eye out regardless...

    Seems like they are trying to blend the concepts of a survival / strategy / pvp type game.

    They sent out the emails to KS backers with codes to apply to your accounts, and if you decided you really wanted a higher tier you can pay the difference now to upgrade for some time frame.

    A small update about combat and how they plan to try out ideas during the alpha. It states the alpha will be late summer.
