Update #12

Land Ownership Rights

2 comments

I wanted to post an update here that will better define some of the Terms and Conditions associated with land ownership in Greed Monger to ensure there aren't any issues down the road.

Land Parcel Ownership will be defined specifically at a later date in a Terms Of Service Agreement that players will need to agree to during account creation but I wanted to make some broader bullet points here.

Electric Crow Games will own the rights of all property in Greed Monger, however, players will reserve the rights to use said Parcels for as long as Greed Monger is active. Players will have the rights to sell their rights to land parcels to other players.

In the event that a player who owns Land Parcels is inactive for extended periods of time, that land will open up for players to be able to use without virtual payment to the owner until said owner logs into the game at which point the time of inactivity will be reset. This is to ensure than land speculators aren't able to buy up large portions of the land and render them in inactive altogether thus resulting in a poorer gaming experience for others.

Our Terms Of Service Conditions will be very fair, but I felt that it was prudent to define some of these conditions prior to the end of this Kickstarter Campaign so that these questions could be addressed prior to us receiving any funds from our supporters. We don't expect this to change anyones mind as it relates to the support of Greed Monger, but don't want any chance of anyone being able to think we are trying to pool the wool over anyone's eyes. :)

Any questions you may have on this topic can be asked here and we will answer as specifically as possible based on our expectations now, with the understanding that some things may change prior to the official launch of the game.

We simply want to be responsible in how we handle this potentially tricky issue to avoid future legal ramifications down the road. By making a pledge during this campaign, you are agreeing to these future Terms of Conditions, whatever they may be at launch. Because the game isn't yet finished, it's difficult to define all of these terms and conditions now as they will be in relation to the finished game and it's mechanics overall.

Thank you all for your continued support! We are very hard at work in our efforts of establishing a combat demo to show you all. It should be pretty exciting!

      How will combat work in the game?

      Target, press autoattack and just spam away like most other MMO, or will this require you to actually take part in the fight, and thus base it more on the skill of you, the player?

      I have 2 questions.
      If a player decides to sell their parcels at some point, is the price then uncapped and demand driven, or subject to developers descission?

      Will parcel claim locations carry over from beta, be reset, or not available during beta?
