I played DaoC the day of release and for 5 years steady. Loved that game.

I wont be funding KS tho. Right now this is just an idea with concept art. If they do another KS later and have something to show besides concept art then I may donate.

As much as I love the idea and concept, I personally cant give money out for it at this stage.

I wish them all the luck tho, I will support it if it gets off the ground.

I will if it is attractive to donate. That means if I can get access to playing the game really soon after donating then yes. If I have to donate then go buy another game to play forever to forget about this one maybe not. Also it depends on what they offer for how much money. Neverwinter, a f2p, just sold its collector/founder edition for 200$ and that gives 3x beta weekends....I think that is crazy. 

 

I think Marc should toss his money in and start to build the game then asking for additional funding. If he did it that way and I saw an actual product then definetly I would give money.

I've been reading the forums for a while and made an account so I could lend support to CU. First game I will dip into my pocket to support, well unless you call buying  indie games right at launch funding.

I expereiced the fiasco of warhammer first hand and watched as my experienced raiding guild brought over from WOW basically crashed and broke up on the rocks that was warhammer. I still remember waking up one saturday morning, logging on, and seeing all 40+ members in my guild were offline like 4 weeks after launch. Logged off and unsubscribbed. Though it was fun to knock 10 people into lava with one cleave. Warhammer failed in a critical period of MMO time where a lot of people were burned out of WoW and looking to transition into a more meaninful PvP type of game, Whoops.

The fact is that people make mistakes and fail. Any entrepreuner will tell you failure is an integral part of success. There are only a handfull of people in the world who have had mad success right off the bat, and even less who have done it a 2nd and 3rd time. The world would be a different place if we sent everyone who failed to an island and told them to GTFO. Actually, that might be Australia.

Anyway, I'm tired of AAA Theme Park MMOs that guide me around like I'm 5 on the It's a Small World Ride. I'm also tired of PvP-Whack-A-Mole where capturing this tower/flag is fun at first but gets tiresome the 50th time when nothing really changes because I accomplished the goal. From the Dev diaries it sounds like CU will try to address these faults in a way that is more similar to SWG in its leniency than to EVE/indie sandboxes. It sounds like CU are taking their time for the kickstarter to understand what is actually feasible.

I also thought that in a Kickstarter it is all or nothing? So if the 2mill funding isn't hit and Jacobs doesn't throw down, then everyone gets their cash back? Sounds fair to me. Though I have not experience with Kickstarter so I could be wrong.

"Any entrepreuner will tell you failure is an integral part of success."

Quoted for truth. We all learn far more from failing than easily succeeding. From Jobs, to Lebron, failure drives us, teaches us, and encourages us.

I am gonna fund as much as I can. Hopefully I can scrounge up 5,000. Well if the wife lets me.

What did you say?  You are going to give someone $5,000 in the expectation of some ephemeral rewards sometime in the future?  Yes give, not invest, you are not getting the money back at the end of the process.  I am sure that there are a lot of charities you could donate that to with much greater benefit to society.

Have you spent any money on games in your life?  Guess what?  You should have spent all that on charity.

I'm all in for RVR so yeah I'll be backing the game because I want a good RVR game to be successful.  I think now that Mark Jacobs doesn't have to deal with all that red tape anymore he and his crew can finally focus on making a good rvr game. So I'm all in on this project. Would rather give a smaller company a chance rather than pre-order another overhyped made for the casuals mmo again.

I think you hit the nail on the head.  I remember back before WoW brought casual play to the masses, the absolute max population a typical mmo could achieve was about 250k.  Everquest was pretty much the big dawg those days and daoc gave them a run for their money.  Nowadays, every single gaming company making mmos seem to be chasing that mass WoW crowd of casuals.  The problem is, you can't really out-WoW WoW.  That's why I'm looking forward to a niche game like this one that caters to a crowd who appreciates RPG immersion, great massive pvp, and community.

Poll needs a "maybe" option. I need to see how much money City State are trying to raise, more details on the plans for the game, and of course (since there is always an element of selfishness in backing a Kickstarter) what benefits are offered and how large a pledge is required to get them.

yes, but not sure how much. I guess it kind of depends on all the information available to the public and what they have to show once the KS project is in full swing.

Put up a Kickstarter for DAoC II and then I will drop some money with no questions asked.

This + 2

No one did mention anything about not including some form for Darkness Falls in Camelot Unchained. If anything, Mark did on several occasions post his fondness of DF. You are making a mistake to simply dismiss the chance of something like Darkness Falls, just because the traditional PvE will be abscent.

No PvE is NOT the same as No NPCs at all. We will have guards, animals, merchants...and you will have to fight for ressources and other objectives. By no means is it impossible to develop a Darkness Falls dungeon with RvR-objectives instead of PvE mobs to slay.

As a baseline for my funding if we received no rewards I'd throw $10 to it. If I have to pay $60 for beta 1 and then do not have to buy it at launch, I'm in again.

So instead of an elaborate multi-tiered dungeon with massive bosses of ranging difficulties, truck loads of gold, and all the salvage you can carry, you would turn DF into Labby?  An arena that draws PVP away from RVR because its easier to get fights.  A place that could have 100s of people in it running loops while the Frontiers were stone dead.  Or PoC?  A poorly engineered underground highway that connects the realms.  Its only purpose is for PL groups and running relics (sometimes).

 

I love your game.  It sounds awesome.  However, at this time, I'm finding it hard to reach into my pocket for such innovation!

Nope, dont have the spare change to throw on a game that may or may not be good, despite what the Devs claim how good they are they always lack one thing for me and thats immersion.
