I will try to keep this as short and concise as possible but bear with me. I think that the foundation of the team behind it will lead to its demise. Ill state my points and then elaborate on them. Screenshots at the bottom. Kimoshou is more interested in creating a game development company than he is in creating a successful iteration of Darkfall. Kimoshou overrides the design team. Kimoshou is playing it like a politician. He won’t announce any drastic changes until after the initial purchases of the game. I will conceded that I have not been to every meeting but I have seen and heard enough to form my opinions. Kimoshou (Andrew) seems to be more interested in turning this into his job. They’ve had discussions about the game they would have to make after Darkfall because the engine won’t be able to support their changes. Every meeting is about advertising/marketing/logo design. We literally sat there and speculated on what subliminal meanings each logo would have on the customer. Bring forth the “Rise of Agon” brand and try to kind of hide the Darkfall name. In my opinion there are better things to talk about with the entire team. Kasmos, myself, Zanuul had some longer discussions coming to compromised agreements on changes. We looked at ideas proposed by each one of us, dissected their objective and worked backwards to find better ways to accommodate all play styles and types of customers. We were all in agreeance that fizzles should be removed from the game. However, Kimoshou would barely listen to us when we tried to converse with him and he made the argument that he wanted fizzles in the game if you were above 0 encumbrance. It would affect too many other things like tongue rot and he didn’t want to remove “features” from the game. They need your seed money. The road map he’s posted are all non-controversial changes and there is a reason they are vague. They want the initial money from the existing community to spring board their project. Later, he will impose his silly ideas. I asked to have a meeting with him about these subjects but he declined. Why do you even need a design team if you won’t listen to them? Instead of spending money on advertising, branding and marketing why don’t you tell the community what changes you would like to make to the game barring any technical difficulties, as New Dawn has done? Dest and I had been arguing prior but I do not have screenshots of it. I was at the point where it was like talking to a brick wall with him. To the community: I gave it an honest effort but as most of you feared, Kimoshou is not the person to lead such a project. Rest in peace Darkfall. skreww L00se; Zealot; Black Shields.
