    Thanks!

    What I see as the source of the problem is that RG - enjoys talking :p and people take this as official policy when it is not [and some of these interviews were done I believe at an early stage of the process].

    RG does this with almost every facet of the game and then places the dev's in a hard spot

    But he has a tendency of being let's say "pro-player" - not a bad thing - so for example - the first place where they demonstrated their game ... 3 month demo; someone asked - would thieves be supported in game

    Around this time - there had been very heated discussions around the topic of stealing etc ... he said "yes - they will be supported"

    What did he mean? Have we heard anything since then? ... I'm not saying he is going around lying or tricking people - just that some of his comments can be mis-interpreted

    Thanks! There is a frustrating amount of info out there. This should help everyone remember where they got it from.

    Chris telling about the selective multiplayer modes, and saying that if you have pvp flag on it will be much higher on the list you see. 5:15mark


    http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/29860059 Chris and RG talk about PVP, in 51min mark (i skipped alot so dont know if earlier as well)

    If i remember i will try help you whit the videos, i personaly would like to find the Kickstarter closing 24/7 party videos, i thin they had some juicy stuff on them.. but im too stupid to find them... or maybe i remember wrong o_O too late.

    Oh and maybe as succestion.. if add dates when the video is done, so can more easy later place them on correct date order.

    The most detail I've seen about PvP is the 2 KS goals. But those were obviously make long about before Starr was even on the team and any lore was in it's absolute infancy.

    In most PvP games, the lore starts with either rival empires or some splintered tribes (players join guilds and effectively make their own factions. This effectively sets up how the PvP will work

    Well, I think this is all fascinating, from an historical point of view, but it has little relevance to where we find ourselves today. We have been told repeatedly that things can change at any time, and things have changed. What we need now is an official announcement of what the Hell is going on so we can figure out where to go from here.

    Looking backwards is futile.

    Around the 11:40 he explains the trouble with fully consensual PvP.

    It'll probably be denied, but I'll request for this to be stickied.

    Great thread.
