over the last weeks i read a ton of ppl complaining about aoc beeing not quite finished yet others (like me) defending the game as playable and fun.
so heres my sollution:
Developers go to your marketing departement and ask them to come up with a cool name for a "almost readdy" game
i mean hey, if the guys from war would tell me to give them 30euro to play their game now even if its buggy and balanced/polished only in 3 month id get out my credit card and pay them.
maybe we should look at it like discovering your new favourite band.
you like the sound but on stage they sound rough and not every song on their album pleases your ears. still you buy it cause you want to be the guy that sais "oh yeah i knew they rocked when they were just starting" when you go to their comercialized concert 2 years later....
from a commercial point of view the company will still get a good deal of money that helps them to bring in more content/support and sees what the players think beyond the rather positive vibes of a closed beta programm. if they are just honest about it (that the game isnt yet finished) they wont loose the hyped up people that expect perfect perfomance...
