OP  12/18/12 3:55:35 AM#1
As a mmo gamer that is looking for something new other than Wow or "Wow clones", I found out about this game a year or so ago through a link from a poster in the SWG forum on this mmorpg.com and quickly became interested in Repop. I signed up for the alpha test form a few months later and registered an account on the official site. When they started the Kickstarter campaign last summer, I pledged the $250 level to help the games funding. I have been really hoping for something different, I'm sure I am not the only one getting tired of elfs, gnomes, swords, paladins-type setting and would like a different setting like space sci-fi. With SWG closed, and SWTOR falling flat, this could be what alot of gamers are looking for. Hopefully, general Beta will start early next year and anyone who pledged earlier in the summer will get garaunteed access. It is hard to say, though, how wide-spread this game will go, I hope it has at least a moderate success. Hopefully A&B Technologies will be able to do a web-based ad campaign to get more awareness of this game.

A figment of your imagination.

I'm a fellow backer too, post kickstarter.

I get the newsletter whenever the monthly change list is posted on the website. I usually see the change list up on MMORPG.com at about the same time.

The guys are getting the word out there, but right now there's a lot of words to compete with. Secret World going B2P, SWToR going F2P, Planetside2, Wurm, there's a LOT of news bouncing around the game world.

That kind of thing is hard to compete with when you've got a game to build.

In the meantime, all of us backers, enthusiasts and Repoplation fans can get the word out. I bet we can raise a little hype ourselves. 


Waiting on The Repopulation.

Many of us are getting tired of the themepark ride also.

This looks like it will be a big success... at least for those looking for a sandbox style sci fi mmo.

I'm a backer and getting excited more and more as ime goes by.

honestly this game does in a way seem like SWG 2.0 and frankly SWG was the only MMO i have played like ever that had a real social community around the cantina's. I really want this game to do well

I didn't realise there was an end of December update until I saw this. I could have sworn I normally get an email when there's a new update or did I imagine it?

There was an email. Check your spam folder.

I got one, but it was though kickstarter and not from therepopulation.net. That might be the issue.

All I heard was... "Well aren't you just a little lolly pop triple dipped in psycho."

I've been keeping an eye on this game for awhile now after finding it through a swg mmorpg post also. I have extremely high hopes for the game but feel it will suceed in providing the majority of them. I love the housing system and if it offers anywhere near the amount of customization as swg did I'll be happy. After just looking at the faq section of their site I also found a ton of stuff I hadn't even know about the game. I didn't know they were going to have a skill system with a wealth of skills all of which you can learn over time.  I like this system because I don't enjoy grinding to max level just to have to do it all over again to fill another role. I like the idea that I can be practically whatever I want to be on a single character.  I like that I can be a crafter and combat toon all in one and even saw that they plan an entertainer set of skills which sounds alot like the entertainer in swg.  I enjoyed having many options of things I could do at any specific time and not always have to resort to questing...pvping...or a dungeon/raid of some sort, theres much more out there to be had.

Another system I saw them talking about that peaked my anxiousness even higher was the engagement system. To me this sounds alot like rift in how they did it but a little different and with much more options in how its done...including pvp engagements.  My first tast of this was probably in warhammer online but it wasn't anything special when I encountered it. My first real enjoyable experience of it was in rift, I loved taking a nice break from questing and run around doing rifts...though they were all pretty much the same I actually levelled a good way through the game doing the rift encounters.

All in all I'm really looking forward to this game and the only other thing I could hope to hear about it is an expected release date but either way I'll definitely be getting it when it does release and expect it will be just as much as I hoped for.

Wow! You actually paid THEM money to develop the game? I hope you get some kind of backend for that like most investors do. I'd have high hopes for the game too.

Donations =/= investment

purchasing product =/= investment

 

investment makes you part owner in the returns generated. which is why theres always a minimum amount needed to actually  invest in a game, or the just call it a donation and its free money to them (though a good donation comapaign can help them secure the real investment needed)
