@Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE I have developed a spec opcs style approach to help us fund before time runs out. I call it, operation Rambo, Unicorn, Camelot Unchained aka RU-CU?
Phase 1. MMORPG.com
Forums and Blogs, comment, share, bump (IGNORE THE TROLLS)!
Phase 2. Twitter
Make like a robin and Re-tweet and hashtag your butts off! Everything from CSE, and also hit up any celebs (especially MMO celebs).
Phase 3. Facebook
Like and Share it all, be that guy you usually ignore, but just for the next few days!
Phase 4. Tumblr
Lets get ready to TUMBLLLLLL!!!!!
Phase 5. CU SubReddit Vote us Up, takes just a second to register!
Phase 6. Scout, scout, scout it on out! Keep your eyes open for articles on the below sites and comment on any and all CU posts, or posts you can relate to CU.
Phase 7. (This is the most important one) Email each of these sites, all of these
CU Backers! We got this list from our friends at Divinity! They got some great press for their game by sending emails to these news outlets. Just send 1 polite email please asking them to check out CU.
Feel Free to Copy Paste this wherever you feel the need:
A few people have asked why we are so hyped for CU when it hasn't even began yet. Well I'll enlighten them. It's not because of MJ. We respect him and appreciate his willingness to work with us for a better result, but its more that that. If CU succeeds, it sends the message that the players want more and are ready to reclaim this genre. To take it away from corporate greed and dumbed down mass appeal theme parks. It lets it be known that we are ready for a challenge, we want something different, new, harder, and social. I lets investors know that they can back the little guys again, take chances again, and make a world for us to live in again! It makes the statement, you do not need 200 million dollars to make a mmo, you need the same ingredients that have always made for good art, a brave idea, creativity, challenge, working outside the comfort zone, being receptive to feedback, and the love of what you are creating. It takes the power away from the corporate invaders and puts it back in the hands of the people that have loved and supported this genre before it was mainstream, and will be supporting it long after. It gives us back our voice, our vote, and most importantly, our game! CU is MJ's baby, but if he does what he says he will, if he continues to work with us like he has, this is a game for the players, by the players, and with our continued support it shall not vanish from this genre! You ask us why we support MJ and CU, I ask you why aren't you! Now who is with me!
WTF something just blocked out y chat
@Vernon: any thread really, the one about yesterday's test, the one about orpg, etc...
I can't even begin to describe my enthusiasm for this game. Been waiting for this ever since DAoC went down the toilet with pve expansions.. I do wish you'd have added more in game fluff items/features for potensial pledgers though, I'm pretty sure you'd have already reached your goal if there were some "founder only" specific weapon skins, particle effects, pets and or maybe even a race. :D
Best of luck, I will cry myself to sleep for years if this doesn't happens.
We are in the 95% to have the KS funded.. http://gigaom.com/2012/06/28/analyzing-kickstarter-what-succeeds-by-how-much-and-how-often/
@Hellraise: Good question. I think it's more of an internet culture but I could be wrong. It could just be some moderators are playing favs. I don't know.
I'm randomly following whoever tweets about CU so don't be scared if its you.. I'm harmless I swear
We will easily make 500k on the last day. I mean that's absolutely normal here on Kickstarter.
10k and 1.5mil lets make it happen!
Hell can you link for me lets go get my 6th ban from mmorpg this week
@Hellraise I feel ya.
I mean it was a BIG ask, I hope it funds too. I keep looking at the projection graphs and not like what I am seeing :(.
Rich, lonely, men that like to chat...
Or rich woman.. I'm open to new things
Can anyone explain why mmorpg.com lets some trolls get away with blatant smear campaigns? On the French forums, whether you want to or not, you better edit trolls of that level because a company can sue the individual and the forum if there is unsubstantiated hints of theft, corruption, etc... If a court hasn't said someone is a thief, you just cant say it publicly.
mmorpg.com is starting to look like the good old vn boards where only life threat levels of trolls were edited... sad...
Am I missing something or is it just a cultural thing?
Its easy to find rich men, dateline finds them all the time...
I'd prefer to find a rich woman :)
god the typos I make
We should all find rich men in the next three days ...
If I can find a rich man to marry in the next 3 days Ill buy a drawgonwhale... or 2!
Watching the demo last night.
It's awesome this thing has to freaking fund!!!!!
1.5 today? I think so!
If someone buys my house, I'll upgrade to Dragonwhale, deal?
On a separate note, the pledges are looking great as well as the number of backers!
@Darren - Thank you!
@Will - I ain't concerned I use it alot. ;)
@Darren Good luck :)
I use a Logitech mouse that I won at PAX East a couple years ago.
I'm going to go host a round of drinks for a local D&D group to show them why they need to get involved with CU. Wish me luck haha!
Thanks for the support you guys have been giving my write-up on OnRPG. My communities are pretty vehemently opposed to most subscription games and kickstarters so glad my words reached beyond their deaf ears to brighten a few people's days!
@Amine, troll caves normally do. :-)
@Brent: Well the use of a word that does not exist is not a grammar problem. It just drives me nuts because it is such a simple two words.
I only buy Razer products.. so thank god I chose correctly plus they are all glowey stuff. anyone that know me.. knows i have a love for shiny things that glow or sparkle!
@Hellraise - I still have 2 Belkins in the garage :) with the old school orange bottom
@Pwns Will Pons
@Archer: So much troll in there, It stinks.
@dualshockers just tweeted about it..
I think if we fund, I'll replace my Belkin Nostromo with a Razer one and buy a new mouse from them too :p
Uh oh grammar nazi.
@ceph, here is a thread with some HQ screenshots as well. http://www.mmorpg.com/discussion2.cfm/thread/383539/Open-Tech-Demo-2.html (just watch out to not step on any trolls)
@Brent: I hope that you wrote the words "a lot" instead of "alot", because "alot" is not a word.
Happy weekend everyone. Gear up for a strong finish!
I use a razer diamondback, lovely mouse but had it for a while, maybe upgrade time for when cu is released ;)
They need to start iterating ASAP, the only way to know if any of their BSC idears are fun is if they get ppl in tehre to try them
@Brent I am with you on the left hand issue.
Welcome new backers! and Hi all!
I corrected myself before you all chimed in! I win! lol
