    By gameplay, I mean the game engine being used in general, so yes just showing even a trivial walking tour of any part of a zone that is current work is good.

    Cohhs video was a second video.  The next one should be coming out on the 21st I think? Its a Thursday thing.  Every other Thursday.  The first one was Oct 24 so the third one is Nov 21st.

    Well, all I can say is we will be supportive and when the game comes out we will gather and play the crap out of this game!

    Now with Project Faerthale being completed that means all systems are in place so they just need to drop graphics and npc's down.  It also sounds like the perception system has been worked out.  This all being said I hope we get some real meat on the bones news in the next video dev stream.

    "Project Faerthale" isn't complete, or at least they haven't announced that it is.

    It's a bad look for sure.  I've sent people to the website and they think the project is folding because the news updates stopped in October.  I know VR meant well, but these video updates are far inferior than the monthly newsletters.  They should do both, which is what I thought they said they were going to do, but clearly they are not.  Regardless, it's a bad look, and I'm sure it is costing them donations.

    Think that might be a little dramatic, but also agree with the sentiment. Would be nice to have both listed, however, at minimum, could easily just have a stub article linking to the videos each release. Given the lack of evident progress with a large percentage of the crowd funded MMOs recently, this would really help improve confidence in the project. That said, I'd offer a little more tolerance as well given the holidays and loosing Brad.

    We are only 1 video behind, considering Brad & holiday's - it's pretty close. I imagine they will get back on track once they start again.

    I agree, was just going to say, they should just simply link to the bi weekly video's, maybe a brief summary of each weeks updates?

    It would help to at least have links to those videos on the news page to direct more traffic and get those video views up. Get that content into the general MMO community bloodstream and watch those donations flow in!

    I'm not sure if we have as 'hard' of a schedule since the start of video newsletters, but before that started in Oct the onging schedule of the written newsletter had been the 3rd Wed. of the month since Jan 2018. Previously it had been the 2nd. Wed.

    Honestly tired of seeing you people cry about these newsletters and complaining that they haven't showed you the progress of each and every pixel they create. The amount of TIME and resources used putting these "Newsletters" and everything else of the sort could be spent elsewhere...  >:|

    As far as using them as "marketing" to increase funding and etc. Yes I would agree you need these to a certain degree. But the amount of information you guys currently and HAVE ALREADY HAD is way more than enough information for someone to decide if they want to support the game or not.

     

    I also would like to feel like I'm walking into a new world/game that I've never seen before when I enter for the first time... From the amount of videos and others things I've watched about Pantheon throughout the years it almost feels like i've already leveled my character up to level 15. :(

     

    EDIT: This was also posted before reading Asbos posts. Sorry, but I have felt the exact same way about this for some time now.

    The initial scheduling was to be every two weeks. But since we just had two holidays I'd say there's a good chance the schedule might be off a bit given vacatons and such.

    Well all this is very confusing and totally inadapted for the majority of us pledgers who don't come on these boards very often (for me it's about 1 visit/month or 1 visit/2 months).

     

    In the previous system, I was getting the newsletter in my mail box every month regardless whether I visited the forum or not. That way I was kept informed what every pledger expects and was happy both with the frequency (1/month) and the format (text+images). Having been pledger for 4 years by now and expecting the release in 2 or 3 years  if all goes well (what is not sure), a monthly information is more than enough for me. Every 2 months would work too and considering the very slow progress I see since 2 years, with 2 months there is a higher probability to learn something really new and/or interesting.

    In the actual system I am getting nothing anymore, have no idea where the newsletter is and most importantly don't intend to watch any long streams or videos to hunt for some information piece hidden inside. And I add that for us Europeans who are not native english speakers it is much easier and confortable to understand a written english text than a speech that often goes too fast and half of the words are swallowed anyway. But perhaps VR doesn't care for European pledgers .

    So basically I don't like this new system at all because getting information is harder, less confortable and messy.
