There's nothing "fishy" going on. They're just working on their product and that takes time.

Calm down and grow up. They're choosing to spend their time working on their product instead of constantly responding to your childish rants.

you complain that their pre alpha needed more texturing and animations and that alpha should be more polished then complain when they spend the necessary months building textures and animations before releasing alpha...
id love to be playing a wire frame right now but im minority on that , cosmetics take time
and soon is as good as anything else, its shorter then when its compiled

because they gave a date, backtracked it, now have no idea when it will be releasing but claim it is soon.

Meanwhile CoT gives a alpha release but you cannot supposedly being closer to alpha?

So are we building a game here or a joke?

Soon had a long time definition before the long-time joke. Therefore people whom are new and potential players feel the game will release will shortly. Obviously the definition is more prevalent than a joke, because people, til this day constantly ask about the alpha release and the "Soon" announcement.

This thread is full of examples of people asking.

if they were to say "We are pushing for 2018" or "late 2017" these questions would cease to exist for the most part. Just be honest. The soon is just going to get you the same questions you have been answering for over a year now.

CoT says they are shooting for 2018.

CoT=Indie project

CoT=team of volunteers building a game that was supposedly further behind than VO.

VO, your move.

Games, and programming in general, take time and lots of patience. At this point it is likely much to early to give any kind of estimate that some might view as a promise.

I'd rather they take a page from CD Projekt Red and say it will be ready when it's ready. Thus ensuring the game isn't rushed because of some kind of deadline. Being rushed has been one of the most common mistakes other developers have made when making a MMO.

I personally look forward to seeing how the game progresses now that it's in alpha.

Funny thata everyone else whom was supposedly further behind are giving alpha dates.

All I am saying is something aint right

Any chance to change the soon on this page and FB to TBA? It can be fairly deceiving, we have been soon status for quite some time now. It is my belief that TBA is better since you do not know when the alpha will launch.

Please don't focus on changing a "word", time is much better spent working on product! Thank you for all you do and are doing to bring us the game :)

That is your opinion but I still feel as if they should change it from soon to TBA, with all due respect, please do not attempt to tell me how to think.

Message was for the devs man, it's not all about you :)

Then why quote me?

People keeping asking about the alpha release every single day only to get the same reply, soon, which alludes to something imminent, change it and they will not avoid those questions.

So yea, it is for the devs and not all about me, which is why I said what I said, change it, avoid the same questions here and FB, profit.

All I want is one day to try it out and I will donate again to take advantage of the bonuses. That's why I asked for an invite to the private testing. Please feel free to send that invite. :)

To be fair to everyone we'll be randomly picking people registered on the website/forums. Sorry, but can't guarantee you will be picked.

That being said, the public Alpha will follow shortly after the private one.
