Pantheon drums up financial support with a promise of a special test event

    
12

Do you have a cool grand (or better yet, ten large?) that you don’t mind parting with this month? If so, you can buy your way into a special test event that Pantheon is planning late next week.

Visionary Realms announced that any and all VIP pledge packages purchased by Thursday, July 29th would be invited into a 31-hour test event that will take place on July 31st and August 1st.

This isn’t for the relatively cheap $50 supporter tier; the VIP pledges start at $1,000 a pop and climb up to $10,000 for the ultimate package. Of course, you’re getting more than a very early test preview, but still, we have to think that this will keep the numbers down for this event.

When this game was first announced and even with the failed KS campaign, I was somewhat interested as EQ was my first MMO and I like some of the ideas of that style of game. But stuff like this and that NFT thing have put this in the group of games that I have zero faith will be any good if they even ever come out.

NFTs are essentially a great way to launder money or skirt gift/contribution rules. Glad that bubble has essentially already burst.

Backed this game in 2016. Yeah, gave up on this a while ago. You would think the very early backers would have alpha access at this point..

don’t feel bad, Star Citizen had been in development 5 years or more already by that time.

Too rich for my blood, but reading about how many people enjoy throwing money at crypto games maybe it’s time for a NFT land sale.

This is beyond ridiculous and sours my outlook on this game.

Seems like a strange time to do this.

Crowfall and Swords of Legends Online just launched, New World is in the middle of a very public CBT, with launch a month away. Lost Ark and Elyon are also launching within the next two to three months and FFXIV has its expansion turning up shortly after that.

If your MMO gaming isn’t satisfied by one of those, then you probably won’t get anything out of Pantheon either.

In think that the kind of people who are sufficiently enthusiastic about pantheon to chuck $1000 at a game that might never come out, are probably not people interested in playing any of those games. Pantheon is aiming at a fairly specific niche, and I don’t think those games overlap with what Pantheons unique seelling points are.

I guess, um, they are really aiming high? The amount of games one could buy with that money… or hell even add in some subscriptions/in-game store items for games that actually are released.
