      2nd Project?

      I read TechnoMancer's post in another thread, saying they have abandoned us for the second project. This never even came to my mind! Is this really the reason? Have they come up with a great idea for a game, gotten 5 million players, then feel they've milked enough dough out of it and move on to a second project?

      What if all the spammers, the scammers, and everyone who turned this game sour moves onto the second project, and we, the Grandmasters, stay here and wait patiently for an update? The new game will be infected before people have a chance to finish it at least once, and KI will forget all about us. What if Celestia is the last major update before they release their new project, and the rest of the updates are minor and come slowly?

      To be honest, I see why this decision might be made. We've defeated Malistaire, the most powerful (?)evil wizard, he's peacefully dead with his wife, and the Spiral is saved. Frankly, the storyline has hit a dead end. So come up with something else! Why can't we fight the Dragon Titan? Something to keep people playing. Or since we have already paid, does it not matter if we keep playing?

      It makes me sad thinking about what this game was, what it is, and what it could become if the game remains at a standstill. Something needs to be done. I myself don't know what, or how, but the many smart, thoughtful and charismatic members of this forum have had many ideas about the storyline, the new world, new spells and new content. KI, listen to your loyal customers, who have been with you from the beginning, through everything that has happened. The description of this forum says "Read by KingsIsle, and while that may have been true once, I am starting to doubt our ideas are getting through to them.

      I thought that KingsIsle has different people working on the two games.

      I think they might be mainly focusing on finishing the second project, because two important people in their company were promoted and are now working on the second project.

      And Elemental, we can't say "took" until they actually release the new content.

      The game has been infected since it was in Closed Beta. Even back in August 2008, I've seen some awful behaviors in the community. Granted, scamming and tower parties weren't a problem; but online dating and spamming was.
      This is what happens to all MMORPG's, it's a part of human nature. KingsIsle 2nd project can't avoid this problem either, it's going to happen immediately after KingsIsle releases it for beta.

      Re: 2nd Project?

      I think it's unlikely this would have happened. The game has only been around 18 months. The revenue value of a MMORPG is that you invest the money in development and then you get a steady revenue stream from subscriptions and crowns. Of course, this has to be supported the new content releases and updates, but this pales in cost to what it takes to develop and launch the project in the first place.

      Yes, they are working on a second project and I imagine they are sharing some key resources, but I also have to believe that they are experienced game developers who 1) know how to develop projects in tandam and 2) aren't dumb enough to write off a solid revenue stream to focus on project #2.

      I would very much like to believe this too, but they have made some poor marketing choices in the recent past.

      I don't think they've abandonded us, but it probably slowed them down a little.
