I wish them all the best with this and have pledged and all, but my god they need to improve their video presentations... I felt myself going crossed eyed with the way he kept looking off camera throughout the presentation.
Maybe their next stretch goal could be for an autocue???
Lol! 100% agree.
I've also backed and also hope that they come up with something wonderful, but (IMHO) just about everything that Ilya does seems to smell strongly of amateurishness.
* The half-assed initial Kickstarter.
* The increasingly complex and confusing revisions to the pledge rewards.
* The constantly shifting goals ("We know what people really want! No - wait. What they really want is a B-17. No - wait. What they really want is an Me-262")
* The serious lack of communication with the community on the Kickstarter page and the official ED forums.
* The questionable disconnect between stated goal "We just want the money for extended Beta testing and polish" versus the financial realities of the project "We're doing this Kickstarter 6 months before we're ready".
* The very, very amateur videos.
As much as it might not look like it, I'm not looking to slam the man or the project. Nothing would make me happier than to see DCS: WW2 be a massive success. However, I think it's fair to say Ilya had a considerable PR mountain to climb after the disastrous launch of CloD and this project (from my perspective) has almost done the opposite. Instead of instilling trust and confidence in the man and his approach, it's tended to give an insight into how CloD was such an unfocused and poorly managed project.
Still, my heart's ruling my head on this one and I truly hope I'm very wrong.
