Your news posting states that '(...)Dynamight retains ownership of the IP and creative control over Fractured Online(...)', but MGI's financial report claims '(...)Gamigo has acquired the worldwide IP rights for PC and console(...)'. Given that intentional misinformation towards shareholders in a financial report has serious legal consequences, which of these statements is correct and would you be willing to sign a legally binding contract with your customers (us) that assures us DS retains full and sole ownership of worldwide IP?
What are the constraints to financial support in the contract with Gamigo? Is there a time limit, is there a concrete investment, does it permit seeking outside funding? To be more concrete, what happens if Gamigo decides the game's to be released now and simply cuts the money for development. That would mean a considerable dent in 'creative control', right?
Would you be willing to include a paragraph into the ToS of purchasing a pledge package that grants the customer a full refund at any time, in case that the game goes free to play? Since you don't plan to change the monetization model, this should be a non issue and would help mitigate a lot of peoples worries.

RE: New Quest Rewards Needed (Forums)
I'd rather they spend their time on developing a great game, especially scoring well on the upcoming stress test is going to be crucial. When there's less urgent issues during Beta, sure, they could devote some time and effort to adding a couple more rewards.
RE: Extra races on Syndesia
Shouldn't all of that be discussed in about 2-4 years when the core game is finished, released, works successfully and a list of next features to implement is compiled and evaluated? The risk of feature creep in software development is real.

Which is why this thread was created, to raise their awareness of the situation and to get a response by the only people knowing what's really happening.
RE: gamigo Data Transfer
@Crucifixx not necessarily... idk man lets see what happens
Yeah, as a very first step to instill confidence, a publisher, that has a seriously bad reputation with the gaming community, chooses to remove the protection granted by EU law and instead move the data and jurisdiction to the United States. If you don't want your rights to be be removed and your data to be sold, tough luck, no refunds for you.
But this move is certainly required to 'operate the game', because, yeah well... because!
I'm glad that SpatialOS is spawning a lot of innovative games lately and I'm certainly going to keep an eye on Fractured MMO. For all we know right now, my favorite race would likely be the Wolf-Kin if I manage to find enough like minded people to be in a proper pack
Then again, the Bear-Kin and the Hart-Kin would have a certain appeal as well as the 'basic good old human'.
And that's it for now! (More to come later, depending on how things develop)
(...)I personally think they should be over the 2-3 million Euro point by now(...)
The company does have investors and 'other means of funding'. While I agree that the Kickstarter should have raised more money, I suppose that once we hit Alpha 1/2 and some videos of actual gameplay hit the net, we're going to see a higher influx of paying customers.
(...) think options such as Auctions and some more pay options should be included here in the game in order to ensure it's long term survival.
You have some cosmetics and a VIP subscription that you can purchase for a steady income to the company.
RE: Give us Attribute Resets please
(...)people will like the aesthetics of certain sub-race but the play style may change. changing the attributes allows for the person to keep the aesthetics they want and get a playstyle they want.
again, i'm not even sure where you brought up race as the discussion isn't about that.
Because, as @Yitra and I pointed out, race has far more impact in Fractured than 'aesthetics'? Different race comes with different attributes. The whole point and argumentation in this thread is that people can't be bothered to create more than one character and should be allowed to change their attributes to always have the perfect attribute distribution for the build they want to play with currently. Now, if you are stuck with your race, even if you would be allowed to redistribute your attributes and you could not change your race as well, you'd still be in the same 'bad' position you are now and would have to create a new character, since you still wouldn't have achieved the goal you wanted, to have the best possible attribute distribution for a new build.
