Sorry, I meant one could set up 100 dummy accounts, referring to Ellwood picking up the difference himself. Also, Lordcooper is clearly a member of a wealthy line of nobility. He is a Lord. So it works either way.

Quote from: "Samuel," a commenter
Okaayy. So I might be asking for a lot here. But can we have an option to change battle styles for our server? For example: People who want to have combat similar to WoW can set it to WoW and People who want to battle like Tera can set it to Tera mode.

This project is firmly in the realm of fantasy, so sure, let's pull out all the stops.  One server is a massive open world FPS with multiple player-created factions vying for supremacy, eventually invading the other planes.  One is a regular MMO.  One is a regular MMO but underwater or whatever.  Who cares, let's do this.

Edit:  I'm looking through summaries of kickstarter projects.  There's some thing incredibly sad about that big gray FUNDING UNSUCCESSFUL box.

And they all sync together.

Through Facebook! Nothing can stop this!

I'm seriously starting to question how many promises he can make before the weight of them all forces KS to shut him down. Because this is basically making a mockery of the process.

It's known as the Oppai-Kaiju effect. The islands of Japan generate a sort anti-gravity field, which allows breasts to behave as if in microgravity. It's also what allows Godzilla and friends to become 50 stories tall, and lets ninjas run up the side of a skyscraper.

It looks really fun.

If I won the lottery I would just donate to Kickstarter and other things all day.

Admittedly, three guys with genuine, lead experience in the industry asking for crowd-sourcing for a game (and so much lip service about "maturity" and "publishers") makes me think Kickstarter is on its way to becoming a paint-by-numbers guerrilla marketing generator, for producing AAA titles with even less money out of pocket for the same old developers.

That game does look pretty cool though, and I like their tiered rewards system.  I might kick in a full $50, if I can think of a banner design.

Kickstarter was bad before Psychonauts 2 proved it was bad AND profitable.

I don't have time to listen, but I've had that feeling that Kickstarter was gonna be a "oh boy i can get free money for my idea now" hellscape.  The only thing unprecedented about this one is the scope of his insanity.

Is that not with all things when you speculate upon the future outcome?  Its like betting on a race horse in the upcoming race...

But yea, we have our turd quality of a kickstarter in the OP...

Generally most kickstarter projects are pretty good. Or at least the ones that get funded are. This is the worst one I have ever seen.
