Grats on joining the Pantheon community! Like you, there are many of us who see in Pantheon what has been lost over the years.

I think there are many ways to look at and approach the crowdfunding model. It’s not for everyone, but I personally really love it. Certainly, supporting a game or project that never launches is discouraging, but it allows us, the consumer, to tell developers what we want. And nothing speaks louder than the almighty dollar. And frankly, if there was ever a genre that needed an overhaul its MMOs.

While not musician.myself, i've come to realise how the sound and music in video game is so important. A game like ESO has a great team of sound developers, probably the best team I've meet in any game. And this add so much to the final result and the immersion. Very interesting article.

I could not agree more. I listen to a fair bit of video game music in my free time as well, so there is value to great composition outside of the confines of the virtual world it was intended for as well. I have had a few conversations with Chris "Joppa" Perkins about composition, theory and some of his influences and I have the utmost faith in his vision. I'm very much looking forward to more "sneak peeks" into this process.

Music is soul that carries the feeling we are left with. Its a really important phase anywhere as a muscian, for a moive or a game. Takes alot of time to get the right sound or feeling for the scenes. Its also alot of work as seen by the screen shot getting audio bites for wood sounds. Nice to get an incite from the muscial perspective.

Kataki, you are very much interested in the PVP aspect, which is in my opinion, betterly made in shooter games like Overwatch or Evolve as it's more balanced, and made only for that purpose. maybe sandbox survival, i never played those..Don't know. As a PVEr mostly who enjoy stories, but with other players,MMORPG is the only place to have that feeling!

I think like @Elloa and @Kataki, many of us have reached a point where enough is enough - I have not played a new MMO since SWTOR (for the record, that f2p model was a though pill to swallow). I have long been jaded with the genre but I see the beginnings of a paradigm shift with the development of games like Pantheon. If you're curiosity is piqued, run over to the website and have a quick look. The game is still in early development but there is tons of amazing lore/media and the community is amazing!

@Nikademis cheers I'll check it out, @Elloa your right I'm bitter big on story in mmo's, although i do enjoy group pve content but im mostly interested in the pvp but not so keen on fps games, I'd really like to see a 3rd person melee group arena/ow fighter game with all the build options you see in an mmo character but without the gear progression grind, keeping a close eye on a game called "for honor" looks similar to chivalry but in 3rd person.

that would not be in their interest ... sooner or later they'd have more an army of expections ... actual game development could suffer heavily because of something like this

Wait why would actual game development suffer? They already have a team at the ready who have been doing it successfully. The question is would they bring them on.

Actually I think the question is: can they bring them on without harming their IP or their reputation. There's A LOT that needs to be considered here that isn't by a lot of people. I for one hope that we see the best case result here, but right now we just don't know.
