      Cautiously optimistic about this game but with a huge helping of skepticism. I pledged to this project more as a last ditch effort to see the MMO genre turn around than anything. Here's hoping you can pull off what others have failed at..and in a way that avoids the ever present temptations of F2P/cash shop/P2W garbage.

      I feel lucky to be able to be a part of this game even if it´s only by backing your efforts. As a note - please don´t dumb the game down so it suits the masses but let it be an experience.
      Benn playing all kinds of MMOs for the last 17 or so years and the best part was going into the game not knowing anything and finding out the hard way. Newer games tend to dumb the mecanics down resulting in a game without the trial and error effort that we actually need to keep us interested in the long run.

      You got me hyped for this game, don't make me regret it! ;)

      Well, coming from a gamer that has also seen where the genre has gone, it's disappointing. And what you guys have planned, has really been that actions that most of us can't do. I think I can speak for quite a bit when I say it makes me thrilled knowing this game is made by gamers, for gamers. I can't wait to see the progress and growth at what you'll showcase of this game to us. I'll b sure to be at every step f the way! See you gents later today at your stream.

      @Intrepid Studios, Make this game "outside the box" as you are, it will be a thing of beauty. make this game successful, and you will FOREVER, change the MMORPG genre, it's limitations, and the boundaries of developers who were not bold enough to take the "untraveled path".


    19. Abdullah Fahad Al-Mowiyjed on

      Ok now you have to keep them excited until the payment is complete.

    20. E. D. on

      I really hope you guys can deliver, everyone's expectations are sky high. :)

      @ Daniel Congrove: Steven Can correct me if i am wrong here, but I am pretty sure that NONE of the Kickstarter Pledges will go towards the referral program, as this is OuTSIDE of the AoC Account system.

      Well deserved, now, give everyone the game YOU have dreamed of! To be part of a team of like minded individuals like this, has always been my dream. Glad to see others have similar goals and aspirations for the MMORPG genre!

      @Ulrike Jung - Kickstarter went live at 10AM PDT.

    24. Wellspring on

      I don't get why people are blasting their referral links inside of the Kickstarter comments. If someone is already at this page, you didn't refer them to the game...

      And if you're thinking of registering using someone else's referral link, I recommend you understand what will happen -- instead of your full pledge going towards funding the game's development, 15% of your money will be paid out to the owner of the referral code.

      So, I would recommend registering without using a referral code, unless you think the person spamming their link in the comments deserves 15% of your money...

      Why 300k in the first hour? It was 11 am PDT you hit 300k. Didn't this Kickstarter start at 6am?

      If this game is as good as I am hoping even tho I just got my lifetime sub I might still make another account just to pay the sub fee and give you more money

      Backed 425-tier. Make us proud, Steven, we'd love to experience a new MMO that captivates us in every single way. #nopressure #okabit

      I'm really excited for you all! It's one thing to pursue a passion project, and another to see it so well received. I've been following your site for a few months now, chomping at the bit for a way to participate in helping make this a reality - it checks off so many boxes for a game I want but haven't seen. Best of luck!

      So excited for everyone at Intrepid! It's crazy to see the hype the community has for the project come to fruition in this Kickstarter. Can't wait to see what else the company and community can deliver! (Also, will the livestream be recorded? I have to study for finals and probably shouldn't watch it live, haha)

      Just got the lifetime subscription. Told myself I would never miss out on an opportunity with a game like that again. Been paying for Lotro for 10 years instead of just forking the money over for the limited special 9 years ago. Super excited. Thank you for your hard work and make us proud!

    44. George NoX on

      congrats guys, at this rate we will get that goal in this day one :) Looking forward to this project becoming a reality, god knows we need really good MMORPG's out there now days
