lol why would I care to correct you? The thread was made since we're getting community applications anyway and was mostly addressed to Polish students, who were lurking around here for years. Don't worry, Heskey, even if we need a professional forum shitposter on the project, we won't bother a busy man like yourself.

Correcting me would require you to divulge some or any information about this 3rd Project after the first 2 failed. Dont ask me why you don't care lol, only you know that.

The game they were making in China still managed to fail even without our forum shitposting, so don't despair just cos I'm a busy man. I know it'll be tough, but if you just believe in yourselves I have full confidence that you guys will manage to replicate the fine results of the first 2 projects with or without professional forum shitposting. You already have a tried-and-tested recipe for it, and you're following it perfectly.

All memes aside, the lack of transparency or oversight looks shady, and all-too familiar.

I hope they make something good and find success, but I don't know many professionals willing to bet their career on it with nothing more to go on than goodwill, medium-term memory loss, and a blank website that exists only for people to apply for jobs.

30+ people in Poland suggests a new investor. Anyone want to take 20 guesses on why potential applicants from this community in particular may be interested in this information? eg. Will you still have a job by Christmas if you're a successful applicant?

How long has it even been in development? The fancy new company that's now registered in Poland looks like it's just been around 7 months:

You say it's not medieval in the post here, which is a bold choice as that's the one interest this community has in common. But going out on a limb I'm getting siege engine vibes from the little information available. Some kind of multiplayer game based on siege engines or tanks or something which isn't "match based"?

I don't mind playing the baddie here. And I definitely don't mind if someone here wants to prove me wrong by quitting their job and applying for one of the vacancies on their blank website (that'd sure show me xD), or if Pogosan corrects any of what I've just said to give the "real" details and prove me wrong that way. It does make me wonder that a community that's so supposedly cynical and untrusting when it comes to every other topic of discussion seems to react only positively to one of the shadiest-looking propositions that's ever visited this forum.

I'm exceptional at setting unrealistic goals and wasting community funded money, getting sacked from my own projects and running off to China to hide for years.

I think I would be a perfect fit, hire me

What are you waiting for?!?!! Quit your job today and apply online to work for this group of strangers on a project you know nothing about!! (I hear they might even pay you!)

Survival game.
Ride with friends, lied the epic, no control main menu.

I'm sure it's a very appealing idea for people with fairly in-demand skills who are probably earning good money right now to quit their jobs and apply to become paid interns on an indie project they know nothing about, with a team they barely know, who have a... not-great reputation as a gaming studio.

But there may be people with these same skills who aren't in their dream-job, and are struggling to get into the gaming industry. To those people I say just take a hot second to imagine how much easier it would be for you to fulfil your dream if you had "Of Kings and Men" on your game-developing CV... forever... and grab this hot opportunity with both hands!

Who knows, some lucky person here now could be responsible for the next OKAM!

Dear sir, I have 3k Strat troops and some gear that I'm not using.

But no way I'm parting with my mighty force for less than 1,001 silver.

Right. Ideally people just accept that plate is so expensive that it'll be a luxury rarely seen on the battlefield until later on (if at all), but old habits die hard and there will likely be still be some factions camping until they can march entirely shiny armies.

I think a majority do that.

And how much more or less likely are you then to use the army in battle when it took you 2-4 times longer to assemble?

Ofc, any change that makes camping less powerful or rewards aggression more could change that balance. Equally anything making battles in general much more appealing to Strat players and mercs might make people eager to start fighting without first waiting weeks.

I hope plate armour doesn't simply receive a price increase.

When we've done proportional price increases in the past, rather than changing player's behaviour or army compositions significantly it just led to players hoarding silver for longer until they could field the same armies as before.

It would be good if a more creative solution could be found. IMO price rises (without also changing player behaviour) just makes players even more reluctant to risk their days/weeks of trading by attacking something. On it's own a price increase just increases the amount of trade required to get the same volume of battles, which I dont think we want.
