OP  2/13/13 7:20:06 AM#1

I have to admit that havent played MO for a while. My last try was when a "fanboy" claimed that SV's devs doing excellent job few months after "Awakening" and most gamebreaking bugs are finally driven out of the game. Well he lied and the game was still messy as hell but thats a different story.

To the point now: to my understanding is that they implemented that donation (milk more money to my opinion) system to speed up developement of certain areas and deliver some things ingame that would take months and months to be implemented without the donations. To make it more apealing to the playerbase they added some perks like getting ingame items, some kind of recognition via forum titles and the top donor some extra things like naming and designing one mob ingame and asking some questions from Henrik. And wanna ask today almost 3 months after the donation started out and they were supposely hit 3 times their donation goal: is any of those donation goals today 3 months after ingame or is it just another one of the same meals that SV is used to serve in their playerbase. Appetiser: the bill. Main dish: another bill. Desert: bill.

And when i m asking if "Grey Halls" is in game i mean if theres a dungeon ingame with mobs and loot and all and not in any case some pixels that look like a portal of some kind that players spending hours and hours to get inside and developers being secret about it by saying keep on trying while theres no dungeon or anything. Something like the chained dragon or that bird that was supposed to be spawned after a certain sequence of events or player actions or whatever.

Thanks in advance for the answers.

There was a chained dragon in beta.   Past that I cant tell you where it is or how to get to it, because its been years since I have had the game installed let alone bothered to play.

So much crap, so little quality.

They probably "pulled a Henrik" and just started hyping some new and revolutionary upcoming feature, in the hope that everyone would just forget about past promises. That's their usual strategy after all.

And yeah, someone will come here saying it takes time to implement stuff and that SV is a small indie company and so on, but wasn't the whole purpose of the donations that development would get a speed boost?

When was the Gray Halls donation goal met again? November or something, right?

 Please explain

Starvault's reponse to criticism related to having a handful of players as the official "test" team for a supposed MMO: "We've just have another 10ish folk kind enough to voulenteer added tot the test team" (SIC) This explains much about the state of the game :-)

Thats not an answer. People donated money for certain goals. Are those goals ingame 3 months after people got seperated from their money or not. Its a bit simple question and i would be happy with a yes or a no.

But aksing these kind of questions makes you a hater, don't you see?

You have to look past all the fails and keep Hoping no matter what, otherwise you're just an evil troll and part of The Conspiracy against MO.

Relentless hating? The product they received money for (grey halls) is still not ingame two months later, yet they already promise two new ones. With this, they will only have time to work on donation goals and not "normal" development they are getting paid for with subs.

Not much for "halls", is it.. Then again, they didn't exactly promise a dungeon I think. Oh well, not my money.

1000 $ I think...

 

And there was supposed to be some daemon bats and stuff, no? The ones they released a video of under production. I haven't seen anything about them anywhere. Are they there?

-Oh. That is much lower than I thought. Still seems like alot for a couple textures and small battle (I amm still not really sure what was going on there...) 

Is it a new "area" or was this just a one time thing?

there are 2 types of mmo, imitators and innovaters.

To my understanding each donation goal is 2000 euros. Maybe you are comfused cause 1000 euros was the amount that top donor gaved them. Anyways i would really like to know more about Grey Halls. Any one care to give some info?
