    Well a ceo of a business have money to pay the guy that use a wrench. Their point is not valid, because they pay their staffs with exposures to a game that got 1,7 people who play it in average. This is clearly a scam.

    I feel sorry for anyone pays £20 to play this piece of shit.

    I'm not sure I even dare to look at their forums these days.

    I don't know if they are losing people in their team, but looking their discord there is like 7 people that are still in their team. Some older members that helped are not listed as team members. I don't know if they just suddenly opened their eyes and quit this fail game project. But anyway it won't last for long because it seems to have alot of server problems.

    Well it finally happened. If you check their website, they are putting an end to it.

    They always told me I would miss my family... but I never miss from close range.

    I wonder how all 2 people who valiantly defended the "game" and stuck with them for like 12 years feel right now. To know that you were wrong and the haters were right after dedicating so much of your life to this shit.

    I mean I am surprised they got ANY sort of game out but to just close their website/forums like that is pretty typical of how they've operated over the years.

    They probably will come back with the same turd in few years.

    Nah I think they finally ran off like cowards and refused to face the music that they were a bunch of talentless hacks that screwed people out of money on a pipe dream they were ill equipped to deliver. The 'big three' behind the project had no skill in making a video game of any kind let alone a MMO. We saw the debacle of the crowdfunded (via donations on their 'cash shop') little demo for use in the 2nd kickstarter and then after that failed they grabbed anyone that was willing to work for nothing to make a game.

    No one is surprised the game failed on Steam, no one is surprised they closed up shop. Those people deserve all the hate they got and then some. I am just disappointed they couldn't FINALLY face the music about this whole shit show instead running off in the night like cowardly thieves.

    Ironically I am sure in the time this saga has drawn itself out if they had focused they could have learnt everything they needed and actually delivered something. It is what? 15 years?
    The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, but wiser people so full of doubts.

    If making video games the way they wanted was possible, everyone would do it.

    Even if you were devoid of common sense, it wasn’t for the lack of warning…

    The community rather just call anyone who brought these issues up a bunch of “trolls”, “naysayers” and “haters” while watching the “developers” censoring as much as they could.
    Oh no question the suckers that got conned deserve it and the ones that blindly tried to support that shit show deserve it even more.

    And let's be real, you, I and many others found the flaws in their 'community' with how many fake accounts they used to try and con more people. It is kind of funny though, if this thread never happened I doubt they'd have even getting to the point of getting something on Steam. In some weird twist of fate they got made fun of so much they tried to cobble SOMETHING together.

    Yup, I bet the only 'coding' the 'three masterminds' did was in one of the Kickstarter videos where they typed a single line of code. That was all they bothered to try and learn. Everything else was a paid worker or suckers they recruited to work for nothing.

    Jesus Christ that's a lot of time devoted to a scam. How much money did they even make?

    After 15 years of on-an-off and switching engines and whatnot, what do they have to show? That after all this time, the only thing they contributed to the project was writing lore in a game that you create your own lore? The ability to get volunteers to make something that isn't just default engine assets? Or the ability to hype/manipulate others' desires? The ability to argue on the internet and double-down on such arguments, blindly and lying much of the way?

    Because, they could have attempted to learn something and create the most barebones prototype themselves, but didn't. They could have had the game be something where their contributions could mean something, like an RPG with some overarching story that they could write, but didn't. Or listen to criticism in general without calling others a troll and banning them on forums, but didn't.

    My personal take on all of this with paraphrased quotes and events:

    Brax: I am a developer with multiple years of experience. I had an investor early on in the project wanting to provide full funding for the project, if I would make it into a WOW-clone. I declined, as I am such a good person fighting to good fight for a true MMORPG experience.
    Also Brax, some 12-15 years later: I have no experience making games, let alone something like an MMO! What do you expect of me?!

    I.E. the investor never existed, let alone WOW-clones were never even a term back then in 2004ish (right?). He just wanted to drum up support, like he was some messiah/martyr of MMORPGs. And for no one to question him on anything ever, preying on their own desires of such a game only he could create. Eventually, people did question this project's legitimacy, and support diminished.

    And we know they will be back after some time, after a few years perhaps, and restart this whole debacle anew. And probably not learn much of anything from the past.

    The temptation to join the Discord server is certainly there lol I want to see what is being said. Fact they just outright disabled the forum is hilarious. Guess it's easier to delete comments on Discord where only admin and certain people can see the log of changes.

    I’m sure the brainwashed idiots who threw money at these guys will find a way to justify their idiocy at following such an obvious fraud and failure of a “game”

  18. #7698
    And so it's come to an end. Let this stand as a shining example of why thinking throwing money at a problem will solve everything is foolish at best and disastrous at worst. I don't think any of the backers here risked more than they were willing to lose (unlike poor souls who have been duped into giving away everything they have to support Doomsday prophets) but still it's sad to think their hope and optimism was squandered by liars and cheats who themselves were short-sighted and ignorant.

    ToA will rank right up there with Greedmonger and other similar pie-eyed ambitions made possible by Kickstarter as proof that if you want to put your head in the clouds you better make sure your feet are still on the ground. Otherwise you're gonna fall, and hard. By the time they realized this and made an honest effort at it, they had alienated most of their supporters and been outshined by far better planned and executed projects.

    How delusional are fans of this "game"?

    Their next scheme involves hiring James Proctor via a merger between Forged Chaos and MMO-Interactive. The new company will be called "MMO Chaos".
