    does it matter?
    what do people hope for?

    more players?
    more features?
    some major changes?

    no to all!

    The only thing that changes is maybe, that devs then realize that the customers they have now are the customers they have in the future.
    What would increase players? Nothing of the things they have on their agenda or 2 years plan.
    Sure some backers will try and play it, but i doubt that they will play it very long, maybe some month, but sure not xx years.
    hardcore fans are already here playing, you cannot tell me that there are hardcore fans who wait till release and then begin to build up their house, guild etc. Those people have already done it or already quit SotA.

    more features like fishing, brewing? Maybe, but only in a rough state like agriculture still is.
    or things like treaure hunts? I doubt they will ever come because it will be difficult to do in scenes with the modes we have etc...

    what i think we will see is uncloning the scenes that arent uncloned yet, maybe some more changes to mob appearance and maybe also one or two more mob types, but not siginificantly more.
    Maybe i'm wrong, but i strongly believe that the game they want to release is more or less the game we play for month now.
    Concept and all that wont change anymore, but some gamemechanics design and concepts or lack of concepts as for example pvp, factions, moral, justice system etc. arent even planned and the cause of so many players to call it a grind game only?

    i voted for Q3, but they will anounce Q2 and then delay :rolleyes:

    I'll assume then... that we should be entering "beta" around R49 or R50, at which point they would likely create a new "R series".

    I'm excited about this!

    When the game is out of early access and officially launched, game critics are going to give their reviews and we get "public opinions" of the game. Backers who haven't played SotA will try it, like you said. If reviews are good they will draw people attention, if not, only this hardcore base remains. Thinking their possible future episodes, upcoming launch is vital. Masses does not care much what you do after the release.

    This is how i see this and why launch is important. So, for me it is not really a question what i hope for.

    do we really need more public opinion?
    the game is already judged.
    A german mmo site published articles that describe the bad mood, moderations, less hope, pay2win about the recent charity/ DS items.
    There are no comments or only one comment what says it all.
    For Europe Germany is the biggest market. You wont get more german players. The Fansites are dead. There is no interest in SotA.

    there will be restrained reviews, who believes a game tester or magazine will give SotA 80% or more? Seriously.
    And how long will the tester have time to do a review and how far will they get?
    they will maybe play one outskirt scene and try to get some more of the game in a few hours, but endgame?
    Maybe they will play the story and then do a review of it.

    Seriously nobody need to be a seer to know what the average ratingof SotA will be and how many players will come.
    I dont know where you all take all the optimism from?

    dont get me wrong, although i have my problems with some things in the game, i like the game, played it more than everything else in the past 10 years, but exactly because of that i say that the ship has sailed.
    It wont change anything significant.
    Couple of hundreds players will come, some will go and thats it.
    EP2 cannot be developed without a new fundraising campaign. Who do you think will donate atm?
    Those who already backed, backed for 5 episodes.
    i heavily doubt it, that SotA 2020 is still running, i rather think R.G. will go to Mars and then announce a new sci fi mmorpg :D
