Cheering from the side lines over the summer sale event

So do you keep all promises no matter what the cost? Picture a world that lived by that. As imperfect people we make mistakes, even in our good will of making promises. Steve set up the KS with the mind set to make us happy in backing IS. Later he saw a problem that needed to be addressed. He posted he made a mistake and would correct it. He did the right thing in breaking his promise to show all fans of the game they mattered. Not just people who had a credit cards. This is the kind of game company I like to follow. Willing to make things right, even when they have to take a little mud in the face. I am cheering on the side line over this action and hope they keep walking in the same direction. They won me over a little more with this.

    I think more money towards the game the better I backed 1000 on this game because I really want to see it succeed... sadly we can't see a count on the summer goal backing but I highly double it will be as successful as the Kickstarter. And that's ok. I hope the money is all put to good use.

    You make a good point.

    Do I think this was handled the best it could have?

    No.

    Do I think Intrepid did this with the intent to "false advertise" and "defraud" it's players?

    No.

    Do they deserve this kick back from people over the semantics of the word "Exclusive"?

    Hell no.

    I am sorry but I am skeptical now to the integrity of Intrepid studios, or their apparent ignorance to business and marketing semantics.

    with a background in multi layer marketing.

    I too want to play the MMO were all waiting for.

    But i do not appreciate being played by a studio making that MMO on an initial promise that was compromised.

    Intrepid studios deserve the mud in the face, they are being backed by a dedicated group of players who have been promised that* MMO on multiple occasions only to result in failure.
    the 3.2mill success and bragging rights of the kick starter campaign were attributed to its use of exclusivity and a core audience with already crushed hopes lying in wait.

    I kick started without a credit card...

    I respect your ability of inclusiveness towards the funding support of ashes of creation.
    And i hope for the success of the project too.

    however when you have sustained a few black eyes and scars from previous that* MMO projects, and have witnessed their demise, you too will scrutinize and hold account to semantics, palette shifts and an early focus on cash shop pap.

    I didn't just throw money  at a hope and a dream this time.

    I invested in a project that might be the last true MMO faithful to the genre.

    let's all hope it's not another "Emperors new clothes" situation.

    This is what I have been trying to say. You just said it in a much more intelligent way. It's unbelievable to me how many people just don't understand how bad it is to call something "Exclusive" and then re-brand it "Summer Exclusive" If they can get away with this then they can get away with anything and their fanboy "lemmings" will just be shills for them no matter what.
