The Daily Grind: What malingering Kickstarter MMO do you most want to see launch?


With Crowfall hitting beta and carving out a clear path to launch, it’s only natural that we start taking a hard look once again at our regular Make My MMO lists to remind ourselves of all the crowdfunded MMORPGs that are still lingering out there in one state of testing or another without a convincing release plan. Star Citizen is probably the one on the tips of your tongues, but there are so many others, like Ashes of Creation, Camelot Unchained, or even Pantheon if we can count Kickstarters that didn’t quite make it. I list them not to pick on them but because I actually want to see all of them out there in the wild and playable. The promise of these games needs to be fulfilled.

What malingering Kickstarter MMO do you most want to see launch?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!

Pathfinder Online…. I know that’ll probably never happen, but still I was really interested on it when I’ve first heard about it.


Pantheon. There are numerous ways this game could be a letdown, and also numerous ways it could grow and get out of the undoubtful initial problems. But before any of that, get it launched so that process can start.

Lucimia. Insert same text as Pantheon. I want to see them both in the hands of players, and then after they grow and mature, one may adapt and change more in the direction for my taste. As with both, the question will be: are they going to copy and repeat old problems, or are they going to rewind and correct by modernizing and innovating on old virtues.

Elyria. Except that it will never happen, and that I would never have played the game anyway because of the monetization and pvp… I would really really have liked to see them deliver just some of the concepts, because this one actually had innovative ideas.


1. Pantheon – It being group centric and there being 5 MMO gamers in our house just works for us.

2. Star Citizen – I paid for it. At least want to play the launched product to say I did.

That’s awesome!


Camelot Unchained remains the only MMO I’m excited about, so I’d like to see it released.

Between horizontal progression, actually being massively multiplayer, plus being able to build your own designs in the main game world (and then have it attacked / destroyed), I firmly believe that CU is genuinely solving some of the biggest problems in the genre.

Beyond that, I must admit I’m curious about Star Citizen. It has the potential to be a great space MMO, but I think I’d rather wait until it’s finished and I know what will be in the game rather than wishing for release anytime soon.

“Malingering” aside …


Surprise, surprise, to anyone who’s read my posts. Yep, about the last 3 things I would look for it switch from “Alpha” to “Beta” or even a “Soft Launch” Is more permanence, NPC AI for PvE and mission givers and opening up a 2nd though preferably 3 star systems. It already has more game features than many other games even years after they launched.

If only to shut up the naysayers saying it was all a scam–or for it to flame out. Either way to end the endless naysaying.


CITY OF HEROES 2.0. That’s how I’ve viewed it and progress from the volunteers has been slow but continual. Good things come to those who wait.


COH in space. Superheroes and space opera. Brilliant idea and I look forward to such a simple yet genius idea. Superheroes on a city-size generation space ship.


COH continues. For a while I thought they stopped but I’m glad to hear rumors of its death had been grea-well, somewhat exaggerated.


Star Citizen because if they can actually pull it off and deliver on the million different things the game is supposed to be, before they run out of money or the Earth is consumed by the sun, it would be an amazing game.

Star Citizen. If it succeeds, it’ll be a massive win for the MMO gaming scene. If it fails, whatever way it fails ( which is a big possibility ), it’ll be hilarious.


Star Citizen because of the possibility of what it can become and because of modern setting, but the way the development has been going I have doubts if it will ever be released before they run out of all their money. The Ashes of Creation is the one that will definitely be released in a good state because Steven Sharif seems like a sane person who knows how to manage money but I am not as excited about the game itself as about possibility of what Star Citizen can become and I do not like some gameplay limitations that exist now in Ashes of Creation.

Not really interested in Pantheon and Camelot Unchained is a joke at this point, as a backer who believed Camelot Unchained could become fun game back in 2013 I am now just waiting for a refund and waiting to see which Asian corporation will buy CSE.


#1 Pantheon

#2 Interested in Star Citizen having played all the old games back in the day. Deliberately kept completely out of the KS / avoided watching things about it etc till its ‘done’ so I can start with a clean slate at that point and form my own opinion.
