i backed this as soon as i watched the video... i think the game looks great as is, it can only get better. Looked imo nearly as good if not better than LOTRO. i was also sold on the MP aspects of the game and backed about half an hour after i seen the KS was live. Torment had me fenced being single player only (and clearly reaching goal!), but i went ahead and backed at $45, i may drop it later... really no risk in not backing it and the tiers are rather meh.

too bad Rouge System is gonna flop!

I have way more faith in Torment than SotA... but I backed both.

SotA looks ok as is, for an indie kickstarter game, and not a AAA release. I Think most people are expecting Garriot to release something AAA though. After watching the Q&A stream... they are definitely indie... a dozen or so people... this is not a huge studio.

If Notch was making this game... no one would be bitching about the graphics...and would think the map view was actually innovative. Go FIgure.

My only complaint, while remembering this is an alpha build, is that I hate floating damage numbers, and I hope we can turn them off. It ruins immersion for me and screams consolitus design (even though the game isn't being made for consoles).

As for the multi-player aspects... I really couldn't care less... but if I'm able to play with a couple of friends (like Bioware's NWN, but better network code)... then that is a bonus.
