I was just wondering if anyone has or is going to pledge any money for this game? It looks like you get additional ships and other stuff with the more you pay.
Got to admit, I am very apprehensive about doing so. Firstly, because we have no real guarantee that the game will be any good (although we can live in hope). Secondly, because I don't like this idea of "pay-to-win", that more and more game developers seem to be using these days. It seems outrageous that people that have more money should get all the benefits in-game and I am really disappointed that this game is going that way - this alone does not feel me with hope and is another reason why I am not sure about putting any money up-front.
The last reason, is that if this game is fully-moddable and you can run dedicated servers, surely the admin would be able to do anything they wanted (like giving people credits and ships), meaning these special "limited edition" ships and the like would be pointless - as you could just be given them by admin. Granted if you play on their official server this would not be the case, but still something worth thinking about.
I think what with recent events I will be holding off on this one as I have been burned too many times by games promising the world and then shafting the players royally. Even though this is a game I really hope is as good as it looks like it will be, I cannot help but wonder...
