Here's some info that was on twitter. Kickstarter video will be an interview w/ me. We want to include questions from all of you, so this will be a good format. Unused questions will either be used in future interviews and/or be answered in our FAQ on our future web page. Super specific questions will likely be answered later as opposed to sooner. Please email your questions to aradune@hotmail.com -- we're excited to start this dialog with our future players! We hope to have our kickstarter page up in the next 3 weeks or so. The game is high fantasy and if you've played EQ 1 and/or Vanguard, you've got a general idea of what the game's about and what kind of questions to ask. I should also add that if you are a younger player & didn't play EQ or VG, but you want a challenging game & not a game that tries to be all things to all players, then you should feel right at home too, so please send us some questions as well.

I play therefor I am

I have not heard much about this but I am interested since Brad was instrumental in the success of EQ.

1. What kind of budget and how big will the dev crew be for this new game?

2. Are you going for several races with several unique starting areas?

3. Are you going for original EQ size or something different?

4. Will there be speech or going for the older style text only from npc's?

5. Is there a name for the lands this will take place?

6. What timeline/theme is this (examples would be steampunk,classic,futuristic,fantasy)?

7. Will there be druids :) ?

I know soe had some layoffs during the summer and he was part of that. After that happened, he hinted at working on anther mmo. I know very little about the game but I've gotten it all from his posts on twitter. As for those questions, I suggest emailing him. I played eq1 for years and definitely looking forward to seeing what he's making this time.

Lol, given the timeframes we are talking about here, this MMO must still be in pre-concept design phase.

He was let go in August. That's 2 months ago. Then he put a team together and started working on the "sekret MMO". What's next, the Kickstarter campaign ?

After Vanguard I doubt many people care what he is doing. The guy has not been relevant in years.

GW2 hasn't been relevant in a  year yet you still have it in your signature.

I would love to see Brad make something akin to Vanguard 2 and be able to finish it correctly this time. That said, I have absolutely ZERO interest until the upper management has been revealed and the clause limiting Brad to NOTHING BUT DEVELOPMENT and no access to the money and personnel decisions is made public.

Well said. He's obviously made some mistakes in the past just like we all have. He needs to earn some trust back in my opinion, but that doesn't relegate him, or anyone, to irrelevance. Let's not keep throwing his past in his face. It's just so uncool and lame.

If anyone here wasn't around during the Vanguard Sage, please hear me out.

 

Be very careful supporting this guy. Once Vanguard failed and the employees of Sigil were fired and started talking, the following was made perfectly clear. McQuaid had poor leadership, limited understanding of what was actually going on in his own dev studio (he didn't know what features were really in or out of his game), was often away from the office, was extremely misleading in both interviews and to publishers (Microsoft dropped the game because of this), and was overall pretty incompetent.

 

If I remember the devs were brought out to a parking lot and fired without warning.

 

The entire diplomacy system was thrown together by an employee at the last moment because it was never even properly prototyped or taken beyond the "vision" stage.

 

I for one will be waiting for this MMO to be released. Get ready for hype and over the top McQuaid "visions" that will never come to fruition.

 

Be warned, seriously.

That may be true. However I am not a game developer and no one gives a shit whats in my sig or what games I am playing really.

Brad McQuaid  however is and if he is starting a Kickstarter asking for peoples money then people should pay attention and know his history.

You can be a fan of his and thats fine. After Vanguard just dont expect everyone to be.

Yup, I'd very much agree.

 

Of course, I don't know Brad personally, and I wasn't part of the Sigil Games crew, but I was an early fan of Vanguard. I did follow that story with interest while it was unfolding. And it wasn't pretty.

"Brad the Game Designer" get's my vote without second thoughts, "Brad the Project Manager" has me running for the hills. Given how the Sigil/Vanguard saga played out, giving Brad unconditional funding via Kickstarter is probably not the brightest idea...

There is a difference between cautiously watching and expecting transparency and callously dredging up past mistakes, rudely throwing it in their face, and relegating them to irrelevancy. One is being wise, the other is being a dbag.

Let's watch and expect transparency. For one, it's only fair to the rest of their team. If someone just can't trust them ever again then there isn't a need to sling mud.

I was terrible at my job when I first started doing it. Now I get flown all over the place to consult with people. I've failed lots of times in my past. Just because I wasn't always successful doesn't mean I wont be in the future.

In the gaming industry, someone that knows what doesn't work is probably in a better position to figure out what does, than a guy you've never heard of or someone that was just a cog in a successful project now taking the lead.

I got excited untill I read the now underlined part. So I am asuming it will be a somewhat challenging themepark we already have plenty of because to me old school actually offered allot towards players different playstyle's. And most of today's Themepark games give a very limited choice in gamestyle's.

Or should I read it more as being more focussed playstyle's?

So a crafter could be just that a crafter from level 1 till cap (if there are levels) Instead of what we have today that crafter is more a warrior or mage with crafting skills slapped on?

If you think me calling him irrelevant and mentioning Vanguard  is slinging mud and being a Dbag then just wait until he launches his KS. That will bring out some real mud slinging.

As far as the relevance comment goes he has pretty much been behind the scenes since VG and all the drama that entailed. That was not a personal attack, just a fact. If you want to get butt hurt at someone questioning his relevance then have at it.

You go ahead and " cautiously watch" and hope for the best. I will take a look when / if it ever releases and judge the product then.
