Lol. It appears as someone payed you to spread the bad word about it

Anyone mentioned Faction Wars (a.k.a. World of Midgard beta)? It definitely fits into this thread...

The dev is very busy on his own forum, don't judge the game on the thread here on TA. Only thing they did wrong was that they didn't start the Kickstarter campaign earlier. It could've turned into a really good game if they would get the funds. I agree though that they should update the game more. They haven't gotten very far for like 2 years with the updates...

What part 2?

Oh ok my bad guess they are not talking about the game much on here. I talked to the dev and they said fraction wars 2 was coming

Probably just a bigger content update, or maybe they'll finally release World of Midgard... It would be about time.
I know Veraxon (devs of Faction wars) hooked up with some big studio that would fund them... Whatever happened to that? I think they chose to go down the indie-way and then they started the Kickstarter campaign? I'm not sure.

Nah, it's just that you reminded me of it, and I remember it being a major disappointment and a waste of 99 cents.

I'm pretty sure they're owned by Ubisoft which is French. So yeah :P
