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 !

Yeah, when I look at these two graphs, I get nervous.

Camelot Unchained

Day 1 - $550,185 (Excellent first day)

Day 2 - $156,171

Day 3 - $82,082

 

Shroud of the Avatar

 

Day 1 - $410,861

Day 2 - $169,482

Day 3 - $101,802

 

I think the weekend will skew Camelot's situation in a better light though. Shroud came out on a Friday and so had a weekend for the first 3 days. This may have been a good idea for Camelot as well.

 

One other thing to note though is that Shroud had more than twice the number of backers in the first three days. Maybe Camelot needs to do something to attract more people to the lower tiers.

SWTOR is the greatest mmo ever!

same tbh, but have to say, if they can't hit at least 1.5m in the first 2 weeks then the chances of them hitting 2m over a 4 week period is more than a little unlikely. Be interesting to see how it fares really, as it would indicate a far greater number of players are interested in solely PVP MMO's than i thought there were

I am cautiously optimistic, and I agree CU has a long way to go. One thing that does give me some reassurance is that there will be a lot of backers invested in this and a lot of pledges made in another few weeks, and if push comes to shove, and it is getting near the end, some may raise their pledges a ton just to see it happen.

Note: I did say "some" and "may" - I have no illusions this may not be the case, and do not count on this at all. I know many have pitched in the most they want to now, and some are not emotionally invested enough to care enough to raise their pledge if it looks like it will fail.

I'd be willing to throw in another $50 to help see this thing come to light. 

I healed Mistwraith and all I got was this stupid tee-shirt!

If all the 5000 or so current backers did that, we'd have over 250k added :)

It looks like 3 tiers might sell out this week, the 5000 island tier and the 110 tier an the 180 tier. Next week I think the 250 and 1000 tier will sell out too. Also towards the end I see the 25 and 50 tiers selling out.

I guess I will need to decide sooner rather then later if I want a $250 all digital tier.. keeping an eye.

The amount of funding needed per/hour of the remaining time is still trending downward so I would say it is still in good shape. Even if the amount per day keeps trending down we will see a surge at the end. I think we need about $1800/hour right now; about 43,000 per day.

Somone had posted some kickstarter stats in another thread, most succesfully funded KS tend to be heavy at first middling in the middle and a big rush at the end, if that is the case we should expect this game to fund if not it will be interesting to see what happens, i know i can put another 50 in and i might but the extra FP's are a bit overpriced atm.

Mark brings up a good point in the latest update video.  Good amount of money raised so far, but not a crazy amount of total backers.

From the Kickstarters I have watched, you see an initial flurry, then a slow and steady trickle followed by a smaller than the initial flurry towards the end.

You also see people pulling out of the higher tier pledges towards the end (probably people just posting the $500 pledge to show support but not intending to complete).

This may be an issue for CU as they have a higher than usual percentage of high pledges (2x shroud of the avatar, 2.5x elite, 2.5x star citizen.) so with its smaller more highly pledged backers, any pulling out will have a disproportionate effect.

Not wanting to rain on the parade, but I would rate it as touch and go.

No need for guessing on stats, there is already a site that gives you most of the stats you'd want for kickstarters.

Here is the one showing what CU needs to succeed - http://www.kicktraq.com/projects/13861848/camelot-unchained/#chart-mini

Compare the current trend with Star Citizen which raised around 2 mil:

RefMinor is correct; we have already seen a couple $5,000 backers "back out," and that really hits the total hard given that many hours see the pledge total rise barely $1,000 now, sometimes less.

This Kickstarter campaign is still very much touch and go, and I would not rely on anything more than perhaps $500,000 in the last week, and even that may be optimistic. That means CU needs to just about double what it has now in the next 2.5 weeks, and most campaigns with a large initial burst do not tend to do that. It is goes from a torrent, to a flood, to a trickle, and back to a flood again.

The average pledge right now is $159, which is great, but the number of backers is ridiculously low. CSE needs to find a way to:

1. Reach out to potential backers

2. Convince them to pledge

CSE needs to get large sites interesting in providing some coverage, perhaps with exclusive interviews, updates, etc. These large sites love getting exclusives that drive hits and ad impressions to their sites. Promise them that, and they may give a link to the campaign, reaching tens of thousands.

I want to see the average pledge drop significantly to something more sustainable, like $100, and the number of backers rise substantially, to 1,000+ per day, chipping in $50 or so each.

Game won't have PvE? I don't mind this but I think the project would have more backers if MJ states PvE will be in-game. I think the Kickstarter will fail. $2 million was too much for such a niche project. I think if this game is ever released, it would be out by 2016.

Obviously it would have more backers if Mark Jacobs stated PvE would be in the game, but that would be a lie. It is not going to be in the game, and putting it in the game is out of scope.

You can make a lot of claims in order to boost sales, get votes, or in this case, get pledges, but CSE is trying to be ethical and not make statements they do not intend to support.

If the kickstarter fails, but the average funding was around $150-$200 each, it will tell me that a pure PvP game still remains a niche market but a very passionate market.  The only other read could be that people refuse to fund a kickstarter that is so very early in development, or a combination of the two.

Personally, i think they will reach about $1.5 million and top out around there.  

Perhaps they should have asked for passive equity partners from qualified investors who are also avid gamers like myself before starting a kickstarter.  I could fund a substantial amount myself, but I'd want a financial return, not just the ability to play the game. Find a few folks like myself and the $2m kickstarter campaign could easily be just $1m.

I have a feeling Mark has something planned regarding publicity. I think that he may be trying to time everything perfect with this kickstarter. It may be smarter to push real hard with the publicity towards the end of kickstarter due to the fact that there is a surge of pledges that come at the very end of the KS.

Also, I believe the stretch goals may build some excitement. Hopefully one of those stretch goals is an open world PVE-like dungeon (similiar to Darkness Falls in DAoC), except where everybody fights over valuable resources for the crafters. I know many of us have discussed this on the forums and even Jacobs himself said not to rule out open world dungeons.
