I am interested to hear from the rest of the MMORPG community on the subject of Camelot Unchained rating of 8.42.  How exactly are they rating a game this high when there is nothing other than a teaser trailer (showing no game what so ever) to go by?

its based on hype level of interest on this site. Mark Jacobs is posting almost daily on this site on the forums and keeping the game top interest over most other games. For awhile it was number 1 and 2 but is falling down a bit more lately. The game doesnt have a review , its just how much people post about it and how many topics are created about it.

Some people obviously feel that idea's alone are enough to start the Hype train rolling.

A creative person is motivated by the desire to achieve, not the desire to beat others.

Rating say nothing its fans who click on like thats all don't see to much in this hype meter its just filling home page thats all:)

Many high rated games have failed btw, thats why its meaningless number.

You have to take any review of a unreleased or newly released game with a grain of salt. They are usually guesses and hype.

That doesnt mean the game will suck, I honestly have no clue about that yet.

i remember when people were leaving in droves from SWTOR and the game was sinking so fast it wasnt funny but the shear amount of negative posts kept the game as number 1 for so many weeks it was funny as hell.

This is, what this site is about:


Getting overly excited about an upcoming MMO and checking the forums daily to get every tiny bit of new information.

-> Hype

I never understood the criticism of hype, it always has appeared to me like somebody traveling to Hawaii for vacation and then while lying at the beach starting to complain: "There is so much sand, and so much wind, and it is so hot, and the water is so cold!"



yes, exactly - the best thing about this site is the fact, that we get information directly from the developers (forum posts, podcasts, etc.). Although they obviously use this platform for cheap advertising, it is still interesting and fun.


Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need.

I guess it's because there are still a few people left who believe the hype.

But don't worry, they'll learn eventually...

They are not rating the game.. the are rating how interested they are in it... the hype

In the vacum of whats supposedly meant to be good MMORPG's people see this kind of projects as a beacon of life ^^

I myself have becoma a cynic. So even if its tempting to belive some people will make a game as good as Asherons call 1, Shadowbane, DAoC etc as an AAA title nowadays, i wont.

I will never belive it before im atleast 50 hours gameplay in and ive hardly sleept because its that cool.

And that just wont happen. Ever. Again.


So to answer your question: Those ratings are made by unrealistic optimist's. ;)

Funny how many people are hyping this game, while at the same time bashing ESO for having a PVP system similar to DAoC.

I think a lot of people are chasing the 'what will be our next great game hype' frankly kinda reminds me of an addict chasing that first MMO fealing again. I think some of these people genuenly want something innovative to come out and save them, and that is fine cause i am not thrilled with the vast majority of themepark clones out there, but i also think there are some people that cannot admit that no MMo out there is every really gonna make them happy again, and they are just chasing one hyped up game after another only to find dissapointment when the game does not live up to that hype.


   Then the cycle repeates itself over and over again.

It's rated that high using the same means that the 2012 game of the year used, and nobody ever played that one either.

It's because the rating system on this site is ... how to put this politely ... not really well designed.

The simple fact that fans and hyped up people will rate a game they like but never ever bother to rate any game they not interested in makes these rating completely useless.

Just ask yourself: "How many games have you rated on this site you did not like or did not care about?" Add to that the games you never even heard about.

The easiest way is to ignore the ratings completely.

That's pretty much the definition of how hype works.  This site is a catalyst for garnering interest for games.  People hear something they like about a particular game (ie. the simple fact that a developer is actively communicating with players at all), they look up the game and give it an upvote.  

The number itself is meaningless though.  It's more for fun than anything.  It's when people take those numbers way too seriously and start making threads about them that issues arise.

I thought that in order to have a hype meter you at least have to have a playable game? I guess I was mistaken.

So we have hype meters for games that are in pre-kistarter mode aka not even conceptualized fully.

What's next hype meters for games that are not even in idea stage?


Hey look at that "Fantasy game with rvr and stuff" has 9.46 hype rating... Cool I can't wait til they come up with the name for it and also classes and stuff....

Its unique IP address hits on that look up info on said game. So its where the traffic is going on

Gaming should be about fun, not gender equality.

It's called hype, everyone seem to think it will be DAoC improved. I personally doubt it, probably it will lend a lot of aspect from WoW as that is what most mainstream MMOs do these days.
