Gave a 2. This past status report on LO really deflated all the excitement from the community and now that forum section is becoming barren yet AGAIN. I understand that X-legends beat Cykan to the punch with AK but it just was the worst time for it to happen to LO.
I understand everything between the two games, the work that was involved and still is involved with both games etc..It's just that the waiting for LO for a few years now has made a lot of people in the community jaded once again. It is nice to have something new to play and try while waiting for LO to be released and I am really hoping it is sooner than later.
@everyone whose QQ'ing about LO being put off
The reason behind AK getting more attention than LO right now is purely because LO has had so many issues lately and that AK is getting further along than LO is. LO has gone through, what, 2 alpha's so far? Along with that, Cyken took the game off of X-Legend, then decided to revamp the game which caused for a bunch of bugs and issues that they had to go through and fix, which made it take even longer.
X-Legend has a good track record of letting out their games in a timely manor and without many issues. Keeping that in mind, Aeria found it better to go for AK first because of that, which i don't blame them one bit. If you look at it from a business stand-point, would you rather put a game out that's had a bunch of issues in the past that's taken so long to release to the public, or a game that's going along smoothly and can be put out into the community then and there?
Realistically, LO will have to wait until AK goes into commercial, which once OB comes, it would up to 2 months, and with how Eden Eternal went, it could be less.
