Mavericks: The Forge - Delay FAQs

    @partypooper said in Mavericks: The Forge - Delay FAQs:

    , for one, would rather have a great game in November than a crappy game now.

    Well,
    another delay and to be honest, I think it's not the last Delay we will have at this Point. The Reasoning for Delaying Mavericks again and why we need to wait 2 Additional Months now (which btw will cross the Release of many Great Games like the New Fallout etc) and the Compensation offered at this Point (3 Months of extra Citizenship) is really really Bad.
    This with the Fact that there is no Gameplay Footage at all (ignoring the "Alpha" Gameplay that's released as a Trailer) makes me think if there is something going on that's been hidden from the Community.
    I guess a Large Portion of the Potential player base, including Content Creators etc, will refund the Game and maybe touch it when the "Free Release" comes and tbh I can't blame them for doing it,
    I, however, will give Mavericks the last chance to get Things right on the 29th November. If they Announce another Delay or when "The Forge" is not as good as we can expect it now (realistically), I will Issue a Refund then.

    Otherwise, as I said, I Highly Insist that the Dev Team Discusses Additional Compensations for Founders and E3 Signup People as well because what's offered now is not enough

    Q: Why was this not communicated to the public earlier?
    Because we don’t like giving bad news? But seriously, we had to crunch some numbers and take a closer look at the work detailed in our blog

    What a dismissive answer. Are you saying we are stupid and that your communication strategy should be apparent? Probably shouldn't make a big set-back for people who have supported your game into a joke (Don't even know if it's a joke at this point, seeing how poor communication has been)


  • Founders

    Look... I have been supporting your game ever since I heard about the plain concept of it a year ago. I have been following this game non-stop and was extremely eager and passionate to be able to play it in August (as I was supposedly promised). Later I heard about that one month delay, but that didn't matter to me, I still wanted to support and defend this passionate project. But now, that the forge was meant to release on the 20th of September, I made sure to take a few days off of work to be able to play it (these days off were really hard to get), and now 2 DAYS before the supposed founders release I hear that the game is getting delayed ONCE AGAIN but this time for another 2 MONTHS. I really want to defend you guys working on this project, but let's be honest this was a really irresponsible thing to announce only 2 days before the release. This simple problem could have been solved if you would have been honest with your community, but this wasn't the case. Don't get me wrong, I'm not going to refund the game as I still have high hopes in your project, but this is something really disappointing and irresponsible due to the lack of honesty of the dev team.

    We were told at one point the end of August, then September 20th, then now November 29th. I understand there are complications; however, why say something and not deliver.

    Current status = Rolling on the floor laughing at all the people that can't construct a sensible paragraph or use a shift key while they are bitching and whining about poor communication! :joy:


  • Founders

    :white_check_mark: I am a founder!


  • Founders

    god fucking FUCK, i bought this yesterday and was extremely hyped for it releasing soon, but for fucks sake, come on, dont wait to delay this shit a mere 2 days from expected release, tell us sooner, and please for the love of god keep your word about this being the final delay.


  • Founders

    I just happened to be on your website in anticipation of the 9/20 launching of The Forge, had I not I would have been sorely disappointed come Thursday.

    As a developer I get the delays, but what I can't understand is the piss poor communication. We could argue back and forth whether 2 days was sufficient or not, but what I don't get for the life of me is why couldn't you have sent an email?

    Had I not come looking out of anticipation how would I have figured it out? When I tried to install the game on Thursday?

    I'm fairly confident in your development staff, but your marketing department sucks unkempt man ass. Sort it.

    Let's say that this plus being banned on this forum for a downvoting that I didn't do (nothing to complain there's something wrong with your website, I didn't even contact you to clear the air, just got a laugh when I read the email) it's the perfect recipe to take the chance to get a refund. I wish you luck to pull this off, I'm gonna check the game when it's done.


  • Founders

    @illiminator31-0001 FREE game is gonna be so great...we all just want another fresh game to play..FREE never ends with a good game...now that we founders are out $30 guess not so free and still gave us the shaft..THANK you.

    If developers need more time for a quality launch of The Forge, then I do not see a problem in waiting for another couple of months. Everyone wants to see as quickly as possible the progress achieved by Automaton since the announcement of the Mavericks: Proving Grounds. This is all wonderful, but if you recall the history of the gaming industry, you can see that hundreds of projects were postponed for a variety of reasons. Very often, the desire to meet deadlines led to sad results. If the guys from Automaton have taken such a step, it means that it really matters to them. This is quite an ambitious project and I'm sure that developers spend a huge amount of time to run The Forge. If the product does not turn out to be bad and eventually we get something really new, then I will be proud that once I believed in Automaton and became one of the founders!


  • Founders

    Two month additional wait for the Forge and half the founders lose their mind, all the while us Star Citizen believers (praise thee lord Chris Roberts) are masters of patience.

    In all seriousness I admire the vision of this game and I'm willing to wait for a better product. Take the time you need, we'll be waiting...


  • Founders

    I'd rather wait 5 more weeks than play a horrible game and lose interest like the Battlefield V demo. It sucks, yes, since I was looking forward to it but if they can't provide a representative version yet; alright.


  • Founders

    Yeah it's frustrating, but you'd rather these devs pump out an unfinished game? Might as well pre order all EA games if that's the case.
    I just disagree with giving a release date if there's even the slightest bit of potential of delay. Just be like "you'll get it when it's done"


  • Founders

    @partypooper Why does everyone keep saying this? They're delaying the game to build an analyzer to take better metrics of the game while you play...not to improve the game.


  • Founders

    I would like assurance if the game is bad by its release, I can refund being a founder then. If you are giving so much extra time then clearly the game will be good when you actually drop the forge. Without that assurance, I will refund immediately because I was willing to not refund if the game released now but was bad in whatever ways.

    It was my belief that this process was to help make your game good and I was willing to help with that process and work with the devs to make this game great. Now it's clear you want to make it great first without the help of the community.

    So in the spirit of that, I will refund if it releases poorly or delays further.

    Kindness where kindness is due.

    @lobokendo-0001 You're trying to pretend like you're being all nice but you're not!

    You basically want a money back guarantee! That's not how this works. You become a founder to help support the company in the final stages of development. That development could be something good, something bad, or nothing at all - that's the way development goes.

    What's happening at the moment, is that a lot of people jumped in with both feet without really assessing the risks or fully understanding the process. IMO, Automaton are going above and beyond by offering a refund. Despite what some other loud mouths think, they are under no obligation to do so.

    The decision is simple; you stay and support them regardless of the outcome or you refund now while they are being generous. If you stay, there is no safety net - you could end up with nothing!
