Victory Belles Kickstarter is Live!

Recommended Posts

Yeah, the consensus amongst the fans definitely seems to be that the KS Belles need to be available in game, even if quite difficult to acquire. Assuming that the Backers agree, we're going to announce a change to a timed exclusive, likely tomorrow.

 

Have to get the backers their say, though, first. Only seems just!

Schwarzbart;

 

You read the Team's mind! As soon as we have the approval from the Backers, that's exactly what we are going to do. Timed exclusive, with KS Belles receiving a slight cosmetic change in their look, to preserve their uniqueness.

You just have to think also if the KS backer then can chose the skin they use for the Belle later or can try to get the normal Belle also and so have 2x the same with just a slight different skin.

Just a heads up, you guys just got mentioned at SanCom. It wasn't exactly flattering. (Site is NSFW)

Oh, I better not click then. :)

 

We've been mentioned in unflattering terms before- we're not too worried. Sometimes you can win folks over, sometimes you can't. Would normally head over there with Nautilus, but we try to stay family friendly. :)

I'll brave the pit and see what's hiding in it.

 

...Yeah, that's not flattering. Although considering one of the comments and the dozen or so family unfriendly aspects I'd assume that community doesn't entirely overlap with BCS' target audience anyway. Best write that one off as a loss and move on.

So out of curiosity, what does the word "Morgana" mean, if anything, anyway? Google Translate says it's an English word, my online dictionary says it isn't. Naturally this isn't the first time I've heard it either (though most of said times can be attributed to me - my Anchor/Recall spell in Daggerfall is traditionally named Morgana's Data Drive).

I only know Morgana as first name for some persons and as part of Fata Morgana aka mirage. Because Morgana is used i.e. as name in the King Arthur legend I suspect it some kind of old English word that actual is no longer part of modern English as I also can't find a reference for it as separat word.

 

Edit found something:

The earliest spelling of the name (found in Geoffrey of Monmouth's Vita Merlini) is Morgen, which is likely derived from Old Welsh or Old Breton Morgen, meaning "Sea-born" (from Common Brittonic *Mori-genā)

As a native English speaker, Morgan, or Morgana does not bring up any word associations to me. Most English names can be traced back to working occupations or living locations. Or are borrowed from other languages. That name is certainly one that came though other languages a long time ago. Celtic or Gaelic origins sounds very likely.

 

Edit: There is also a strong possiblitly that this is related.

In this case, the derivation is from Fata Morgana, and comes from the early Italian experience with these foes. But actually, each of the 7 Nations has their own name for the enemy.

 

Any other associations are purely coincidental...muahahaha.

Wow up to $150 ingame currency is added to the tiers. If one can easy spend this much money on extra resources that reduce the time need then this game becomes a big money sink for some.

I really hope you consider special optics to be added to the shop or it might end up pure pay to win.

Welcome to the Freemium/P2W payment system. It's intended to fleece the retirement fund off of a whale or two, otherwise it's not going to be making any money.

 

Incidentally, it works. The pledges for reward packages, currently, are 16, 13, 5, 3, 3, 11, 4, 4, 0, 3, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1. Care to guess what the odd 11 among single digit numbers is?

The lowest amount you have to pay for the highest in-game monetary reward?

Bingo. Specifically it's the $150 tier, which includes as much worth of ingame currency. All tiers beyond that cost more, but include the same amount of premium currency - $150 worth.
