RE: OST Update - Main Theme V1
@Prometheus I do like the track, it has an interesting flow, just enough energy without being a battle hymn. But as a main theme... I am not sure. You have to have a catchy tune, something you can hum and other people would know what it is. The opening song for Everquest.... the March of the Star Destroyer... you know what I am talking about. I haven't loaded up EQ in years and haven't played it daily in over a decade but I can still whistle and hum the entire song.
Never underestimate the power of a song. The original Diablo Tristram Village music is one of the most magical songs ever made, just listening to it brings back vivid memories of the game, its not the intro but I would say it was the main song for that game. If you can get even the first 10 seconds to have a catchy tune you will be in the right direction. Even dumpster fire games like Earth and Beyond had a catchy tune that I can fully remember... even more than the game itself in that case.

RE: Fractured Kickstarter - I pledged post!
@cronykil I am glad you are a supporter! I have to admit I have dropped almost enough to get a F8, but I do get to chill in a gold suit . But I was almost sure that Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen was what he was talking about. Look it up, Brad McQuaid from the original EverQuest is making it (I /played almost 2 years in EQ). To get a lifetime subscription its $10,000.
.... and yes I am fed up with constant bashing of Star Citizen (SC), or any other MMORPG. Mostly SC though as I tend to hear about it the most. Your post caught me after a long conversation with friends on a different game that got a little heated when someone started bashing SC and they had absolutely no clue, they were bashing SC because they heard someone else bash SC, and that... that is what needs to stop.
My apologies for snapping at you.
RE: Haven't pledged? Want to upgrade, but not sure yet? Tell us why!
Remember folks, you reap a benefit from backing but the main point is to fund the game. Even at its lowest cost package you are helping and being rewarded. At the $20 early backer point you are getting a $50 value to include beta access.... that is pretty fricking amazing and its disturbing to see so many asking for more. Then again the internet is disturbing most of the time so I am not entirely surprised. The kickstarter reaching its goal is both a boon for promotions and a solid way to get that foot in the door. More people will feel comfortable supporting a game that has already completed a kickstarter. It also shows other investors that there is a market for the game. I urge people to support the kickstarter, its a solid path to getting this game made.
RE: Suggestion ingame pub
For purpose of study I myself will be subjected to alcohol tonight. During this time I will attempt many different play mechanics to see what would be the most fun in the game. All of this in the name of game development. For you guys and gals, I do this for you. To the bar!!!
RE: Cash Shop Items You'd [Consider] Buy
I would rather pay a small subscription than be expected to buy from a cash shop. I am not going to lie, I have nearly sold my soul in Star Citizen, I paid more than my fair share in the Ashes of Creation kickstarter, but I am not a cash shop kind of guy. I dabbled with it in MWO but it never felt good. I would rather earn what I can. Well to be honest there hasn't been a cash shop that appealed to me. If I could buy superior crafting tools that say do not wear out and look cool when being used... well that I could see as valuable, cosmetic only items though.... not so much. While I understand you must not cross the thresh hold of pay to win I think simple tools that do not wear out vs tools that are inexpensive but have to be fixed by NPCs from time to time is not a P2W deal. So there you have it. I would pay for cool looking indestructible crafting tools.
RE: Suggestion : Good idea that most MMO's Lack.
@darian That was the main problem with WoW when they added this. It was just a time sink for mounts and pets. It would be cool if Fractured made a "ancient" line of spells and items. You would need to track down ruins to read where ancient battles were fought to see if you could find artifacts you could either salvage or research. You might even get a subclass this way, like Ancient Hunter or Ancient Summoner and so on. It would be cool to have dungeon bosses guarding high end stuff as well as normal loot drops. You know you have to create a key to unlock a special room and its at the end of the dungeon guarded by a dragon. Its always nice to have multiple reasons to dispatch dungeon bosses and deeper interactions create lasting memories and equate to more fun.
