    Stand corrected then. Any insight into whether a deal with Tencent can still be reached or is this thing truly dead? And if this thing falling through impacted your job status, very sorry to hear that.

    Smed was very hyped about this project, they'll just move him to whatever new game comes next, but feel bad for him none the less. Tencent completely shit in their mouths. Probably wanted a share of Prime revenue the show will create to continue to publish the game. Must have Amazon by the...

    Appears Convo is just taking a break for some RL stuff, he'll be back at some point. That's a good thing, dude has been cheering this for so long, he deserves to be there at the end whether it sinks or swims.

    I missed this, but Convo was fired/left Pantheon? What happened there, thought he'd take a bullet for that game. Can you talk about this Convo without breaking some waiver you signed?

    Highlight point from that recent Pantheon stream is that lead designer Convo has created a giant beehive in Avendyr's Pass to explore. Championship!

    Camping is like deep sea fishing. I find it completely satisfying. The fun is seeing what shows up (aka the rares and their rare loot drops). There's a certain charm to fighting down to a specific area just to set up shop if you can break the initial spawn. And then there is a certain...

    The other interesting part is that the two new classes available to play are the Wizard and Rogue. And that they are struggling with the pet system for the Summoner.

    I think their best hope is Amazon. Maybe Smedley gets sentimental about Pantheon being Brad's last game ever. Bezos played EQ1, and has more money than God. New World and the LOTRO micro-transaction MMO they are making are not going to be direct competitors for Pantheon. There's at least a...

    They owed us a mea culpa for going dark. Don't reboot your damn game and act like you're not rebooting the game when we call you out on it. That said, it's very obvious they needed to reboot the project, and it's also fairly obvious they are making some progress after doing so. All that being...

    Listened to that two hour marathon. Joppa gets it, he says the right stuff, I just have little faith the VR team of two programmers can create the dynamic MMO he envisions. The goal HAS to be to sell out to somebody. There's no chance they can make what he just spent two hours describing...

    Nick is the guy from some of the pre-alpha Pantheon videos that were allowed a few years ago. Part of Zaide's guild I believe. Is this a bunch of forum bros getting together to out-Pantheon, Pantheon?

    The only thing I got from the round table was the current team thinking the original team was a bunch of dumbasses for the pledge packages they put together. These guys are not happy about being stuck dealing with some of the pay-to-win rewards, and they really aren't happy about the life time...

    Oh, for the love of God Convo....you have a budget and money will run out, "no matter how long it takes" is going to go by the wayside real quick if you keep rebooting the game every two years and you keep bleeding programmers. I am glad the newbie experience for the Human race is awesome...

    Project Faerthale was a straight up reboot. The third or fourth one now. This "version" of the game has been in development for two years. It's going to be in development until 2025 in a best case scenario. How the hell they have gotten enough funding over the years to continually trash the...

    I find it fascinating that Nirgon is taking the Convo career path option. I'm sure they notice. By my calculations, you will be volunteering your time as their top developer quite soon! We expect big things. Big things!
