LOL, $5000. For a virtual island. In a game that isn't even worthy of the title vaporware.

No thanks.

Well, not really as simple as that.... I, for example, prefer to see it as what can 5k potentiolly do for others.

I would rather give it to my local dog sanctuary or community garden or whatever.

I support my games by buying the box, and I am willing to buy into crowd funding up to that point, but once the amounts reach higher amounts I have to question what that money can actually achieve in the wider world.

I mean, each to their own when it comes to their oen money, I am just saying never trust the guy that states 'it's as simple as...' ;)

I wouldn't, and not because of lack of money. Mostly because I find the concept of the game to be incomplete. I think it will be fun, but it is sort of coming off as a daoc lite. Less classes (to start), no pve, just doesn't click for me.

Now if it had everything I was looking for, probably still wouldn't. I have better uses for my money, like traveling. Would still toss a few hundred at it, but that would be if it was more than what it is. Currently, I am leaning towards not contributing at all, but that could change as I get more info.

Some people seem to have an opinion what other people should do with their money. It's their own business.

If someone has an abundance of money and they like the KS and CU, why not spend $5000 on it?

Personally i will go for a somewhat lower tier, so no island for me ;).

No i would not, nor would i ever support these kind of milking mechanix.

At least this game is finally off my wannahave list now.

I will agree that $5,000 is a lot to spend on a video game. However, $500,000 is a lot to spend on a car. If it makes the customer happy, why judge? People get pleasure from their hobbies, and some are willing to spend lots of money on them. And why shouldn't they be able to?

As for Mark and his company ripping people off, where is the gun and the bag with the $ symbol on it? Are they robbing people at gunpoint? No. They have laid out what they are going to do, and people are free to believe them or not, just as they are free to pledge nothing or $10,000. There is no duplicity here; if people feel ripped off it will be because they made a poor decision, not because they were tricked.

Anyway, I see more bitterness and jealousy than I see reasonable discussion. If you cannot afford a $5,000 island, join the club with me. If you want to argue some actual relevant points about it, sure. However, mindless bashing of the people who would pay that because they can and want to, or the company, is pointless.

Helllloooou?! The guy ( and every guy ) who spend $500k or 1k for a car, will 99.99.99.100% see the car , test it first and such.  

Nice "write-up" for a guy talking about "argue" , "midless bashing of the people" and my favorit "Are they robbing people at gunpoint"? No , they are not robbing people in Indiana Jones style. We are in 21 century , where talk is not cheap anymore since "dOh" people are ... like zergs in Starcraft.

There are people who will kickstart the game with $5000 and more, no matter what rewards there are at that tier.

It's not like those people are waiting to see what the reward will be.

They already have the money ready to go.

Heck, some people gave Faster Than Light $5000, and that game didn't come out of alpha. Release was the same as alpha.

If you can't do something well, enjoy doing it poorly.

 
OP  3/28/13 6:08:33 AM#70

Gotta echo what someone said earlier about some people having this ass-backwards...the idea here is that $5000 is a donation to a creative project and the island is intended as a fun way of saying "THANK YOU" for the donation. I think Mark Jacobs needed to come up with creative ways to fill in those tier rewards, and at different levels, they can't all be the same. 

I ask those who voiced their irritation to give Mark the benefit of the doubt here.

Well, it is an opinion thread, so opinions are what you are gonna get.

It obviously *is* their own business what they want to do with their money, but that dosen't stop others having an opinion on what others choose to do with their own money.

If I think someone is ridiculous for spending that kind of money for what is being offered here I will say so. I wouldn't try to stop them from doing it, but I would shake my head and consider them foolish.

Why not though? All I can say is why I wouldn't, as I did above.

If the kickstarter doesn't fund, we won't have our money taken. On the other hand, if KS fund, as MJ is putting 2M from his own pocket and will have at least 1M from another source we can be pretty sure it'll make it to release. Also, with 5K you are sure to have acces to the early stage of testing and bug hunting, so you may not test it before buying but you'll get to make it the best way possible.

 

About the "you could do better thing of your money", well yes you could. What are YOU doing with the 5k you said you could pull out? Will you give it to a charity as you said you could? Or will you use it to buy some currency, maybe a car, or whatever you want, was it travelling too? I do not like to travel. I don't see the difference between putting that much money into a numerical world that will bring me fun and memories and putting it into a real world that will do the same -except i hate travelling-. Well, maybe you will have some souvenir, but you'll pay for them too.

 

Just tell me how much you spent for your own welfare, be it cigarette, seats for a football match, tickets to see a cinema movie, go to the restaurant, how much do you pay for your hollidays?

I do not like to smoke, nor do i appreciate football, i rarely got to the cinema or restaurant and as i hate travelling i don't go on hollidays either. What i like to do, is to play video games, read books and study science, so is it wrong for me to spend money in those activities?

 

Furthermore, as it was said in a previous post, you can gather the funding of several people to get to the 5K in one KS account and have a guild island too, do you still think it is too much?

 

In case you really care about the problems of the world, then instead of spending your money randomly then do like me, go read that website : http://www.thevenusproject.com/en

You won't even have to give money, the only thing you have to do for now is spread the word about it, and you'll see than if it is worthless it'll collapse on its own. Although i do like to believe it can become true.

I would love to give as much, but I don't think there's any way I can accumulate that much to give away :p

The game is all talk not even listed on Kickstarter and they will need to have something to show investors before they can start a kickstart, words won't cut it and that is all there is on this game right now. Needs to be removed from the list of games in development until such a time that it is actually being developed.

No - for something that is most likely not ever going to see a launch date, no.

I hope CU funds and launches, but the odds are heavily against them, that is the hard truth.

The vast majority of game kickstarters fail to fund, and then consider how many MMOs fail in development, and then how many turn out crappy.

This is a BRUTAL business to be in and the gamers are very needy and pretty unforgiving.

Good luck :)

Not even if I hit the lottery. I would never pay 5k for pixels. I haven't payed for a subscription in over a year now.

Besides, Where will your money be when the game eventually shuts down?

Ehhh... Island = physically removed from other = bascially instanced in MMO terms... 

 

What's the point of housing if it's not more communal in nature? Only way this would be useful is for a guild/alliance as others have mentioned.

There are a lot of smokers out there, that pay a lot of money to keep doing it, even though it is a little at a time. And contrary to cigarettes, the game won't give us any cancer.

 

How much do you pay to have a seat at a football match? A match where you won't even participate in, just watch, and that if you manage to find a video of it will still be the same as when you watched it for the first time (or with less quality, assuming than you go see it and don't stay at home because it is better out there than on any video)?

 

It may be pixels, but it's fun, and we like it.

I have no idea why people are complaining that much here. In my opinion owning your own island, as some of the perks for donating, sounds absolutely awesome. You are not buying an ingame island for 5.000$. You are donating 5.000$ to support a vision you like and get rewards for doing so.

Kickstarters primary goal is to fund a project, thats what every donation is helping to accomplish. The rewards are only meant as a "Thank You" from the developers and the more innovative and cool those are, the more people might be willing to help fund the game.

Is this kind of like buying your own island for 5.000$? Yes, but the first thing you do is to help fund the game and for 5.000$ the island isn´t the only thing you get as a "Thank You". Compared to all the other rewards from that tier, its a lot less, what the island itself actually costs.

Too bad this isnt offered as some kind of 500$ Addon or something like that :D
