Camelot Unchained’s Mark Jacobs explains CSE’s Beta 1 ‘hard crunch’

City State Entertainment has announced on its livestream that it’s entering a “hard crunch” mode to deliver RvR-centric crowdfunded MMORPG Camelot Unchained according to backer expectations.

Ahead of the stream, CSE’s Mark Jacobs told Massively OP that developers had already been working under an optional soft crunch and that now they’ll be working 12 hours a day, five days a week to get beta 1 out on schedule without a delay. We spoke to him about the need for crunch and the impact it’ll have on the developers.

Massively OP: “Crunch” is pretty much looked on as a really horrible awful no-good thing in this industry — a word uttered with disdain, usually in the same sentence as “EA” or some other unloved overlordy publisher. I know you guys want to get the beta out and not disappoint backers, but aren’t you worried that the backers will actually be more concerned by the need for crunch than for a minor delay?

Mark Jacobs: Nobody likes to crunch less than me, but we believe that our Backers deserve our best efforts to open up Beta 1 according to the current schedule. The bottom line is that we don’t want to disappoint our Backers with another delay, and we are going to do everything we can to avoid that disappointment. The team is performing great, and now is the time to level that performance up to a heroic level. Our Backers deserve that effort, and we won’t let them down by not making that effort. We might fail, but we are going to do everything we can do to avoid that outcome.

The Stream Team: Going on a Quetzal hunt in ARK

MassivelyOP’s MJ likes big birds and she cannot lie! That’s why the crew is going on a quetzal hunt in ARK. This massive monster can be saddled with a platform and turned into a flying fortress for her and her friends, and past attempts to add one to the herd have been unsuccessful. Today, however, is the day! MJ is determined to find and capture one of these big birds. Quetzals never land, so if they do find one, the fight has to happen high up in the clouds — no easy feat! Join us live at 12:00 p.m. to get in on the hunt (and possibly watch MJ fall out of the sky).

The Stream Team: Back in another Black Desert closed beta
