While I'm not surprised about this, I'm suuuuuper annoyed about it, I backed them by buying Landmark years ago and have been watching it like a hawk since then.

They said they cancelled because Everquest Next wasn't fun... Funny that was 'Never' a consideration when Everquest was never fun IMO.

Sorry to hear. I have never played any online game save for NWN2. I would be interested if there was as good RP as with NWN2 PWs, particularly Sundren. Though I would hate to split time. Side note Shards looked like it might be good, but not sure about the RP side.

Shards is being designed by NWN players for PWs, basically. People can run their own Shard, and enforce their own rules on it, so I imagine if a particular crew migrated from NWN2 to Shards, the quality of the RP would migrate with them. It isn't like an MMO where it's all a crapshoot.

The trouble with shards is that it just looks awful.

Every gameplay video I've seen just looks dire, like some compilation of the worst of the mechanics from Arcanum and Ultima Online (though given how many ex Ultima devs are on it I don't think we should be surprised).

Visually it's a blandathon. Like a house being flipped it's a makeover of staggering off-white beigeness all wrapped up in the most generic implementation of the dreaded 'Unity Look'.

Its often garbled development messages failed to inspire confidence in its kickstarter campaign and haven't got better since.

Maybe I'm overly harsh or judgmental, but giving what I've seen so far I wouldn't pay in advance for it.

I just had a look on the website and checked out the screenshots which looked pretty, then I looked at the videos and saw how bland it looked in motion. Their pricing strategy seems confusing aswell; You don't pay to run a server (a shard) but you do pay to run a cluster (a collection of servers that use the same ruleset)?

Yes I have only looked at the pics and videos. It does not look very good "visually" but thought that the expand ability and customization capabilities that is might be worth looking at. I love NWN2 even with its bugs. Ultimately its about the people I play with.
