I am in a large adult MMO guild and there is very little talk about this game. Most people are interested in near-term games like TESO, Neverwinter, Wildstar and Darkfall. There are so many games going on right now that CU falls through the cracks.

There needs to be more coverage aside from mmorpg.com and gamebreaker.tv . On TenTonHammer and Massively it gets buried underneath all the other gaming news.

because theres more to see from those games. Mostly what we have from CU is ideas. Ideas will get you so far but people like to see shiny things from the game.

meh I wouldn't be too worried yet. I'm going to donate $110 - just haven't gotten around to it yet. I'm not in any rush to do so. I'm sure there are tons of low range donors like me just waiting.

Hers the truth of it, despite CU hammering the forms there is nada on the news pages.

If this was an EA title 8 of the 10 features would be about it as was the case for SWTOR and GW2.

 

Expresso gave me a Hearthstone beta key.....I'm so happy :)

 Do they have a sprint chart to see when it would pass  based on the current (say 24 hours) funding trend?

Worry not, the game will explode as they release more footage.  The amount of new info since they launched kickstarter is phenomenal compared to other young projects. I think they will do just fine, give them time.  Game isn't out till Dec.2015, still plenty of time to promote.

" Game isn't out till Dec.2015, still plenty of time to promote."

True, but I think what they're concerned or talking about is the trend for the kickstarter which is one month.  I think /hope it will be fine, but don't have any past funding trends to base it off of.  I'll be interested to see how we do this weekend.

Maybe some of the guilds are taking a while to get it together for the guild tiers.  I know mine is planning on getting for one, and still consolidating the funds for it to make the pledge.

I put in for a tier, and could put in more as I see what other items and information comes out.

It is common to see a second kickstarter later too. This one will succeed obviously but there are many stages and hurdles to cross for CSE over the next 2+ years. Once the path is laid out financially for their basic goals I would think it likely to see another kickstarter devoted entired to stretch goals. Others have done it.

 

Pledge rewards would change dramatically of course and the limited rewards now being the most valuable so if you got the cash ... spend it now!

You stay sassy!

I wouldn't say obviously. The pledges per day are dropping and if they drop below the required trend, well obviously it will be trending toward failure.

I wouldn't say obviously. The pledges per day are dropping and if they drop below the required trend, well obviously it will be trending toward failure.

I simply base it upon (someone can correct me if I am totally wrong of course):

 

1. They chose a 30 day period which is the most successful by metrics.

2. The most money comes in initially, it slows and peaks once more near end at usually around 50% of the initial peak.

 

The first day peak typically only less than 10-15% total pledge. This was around $500,000 to $750,000. The last rush could very easily be $250k to $500k over a 2 to 3 day stretch. The slow periods inbetween still average around 70% of the total earnings. So if the peak is over already (which it clearly is) and the end peak hits average estimates then at least 1 million is projected to only make up 30% of total pledges. To me this seems to be an easy success unless something dramatic happens that blows them out of the average kickstarter model especially popular 30 day durations.

If this was sooooooo awesome, why not incorporate and sell stock? Seems like a great investment with lots of interest here. Federal regulation. That's why. Small things i can see, but a multi million dollar project, with zero control other than forums? How much of your kickstart will be payroll? Anyone know? Of course we don't, it's all private, throw cash in and maybe you can win, like a casino. Good luck.

I think this comes down to educating yourself on how kickstarter works, how long it's been around, how many successful projects have spawned from it, how it allows indie companies to compete, etc.

 

Also might want to look into the entire PBS system which has been around for decades.

pbs is actually a 'public' entity, you can see their books if you dig . Plus, now that it's common knowledge, let's sit back and watch the success rate drop as hucksters enter the 'market'.

Obviously? You mean hopefully surely? Currently they really aren't doing as we'll as many thought they would and its entirely possible CU fails to hit its target.

My current estimates put CU somewhere between 1.5 mil and 3.5 mil. The key is the lower tiers selling out. The lack of action on the $25 and $50 tiers are quite concerning.  Remember the sooner they get the goal, the sooner they can start pushing for stretch goals. Ideally we don't want to just fund the game but reach as many stretch goals as possible so this game is even more awesome. 

More than likely CU will get 1mil by sunday and hopefully 2 mil by the 21'st leaving the last week for all the stretch goals.

I am curious to see how Shroud of the Avatar ends.  If Shourd hits about 1.8 million it is a good sign for CU, because so far CU is pacing ahead of Shroud.

Actually CU is doing worse than Shroud so far. Shroud had about 40 % of the total amount (only 1 million) at first day. CU only about 28 % as they aim for 2 millions. Compared it to other projects of that size and CU is more heading towards 1.2 mill, maybe 1.5 if you are very optimistic.

But that's of course just a guess. I wish CU kickstarter all the best. Not because I like it (sorry, no PvE killed it for me and there is not enough real info, words alone don't do it for me) but because the CU fans are so enthusiastic and really want this game. I hope it works out for them. Good luck !
