Great to see this is progressing so well and will work out for you all! I hope the gameplay also holds up but overall looks to be a successful KS.

It seems that it will be my first miniatures game that gets delivered on time and what miniatures!
Great stuff!

Given that the vast majority will STILL be waiting for their AvP miniatures, saying "ha ha, I got mine and you're still waiting" will say more about you than them.

I am pretty sure they won't worry about it too much. There were good reasons to not back LOAD. I do agree it got too negative on both sides... but some backers were trolling just as much as some non backers. I like to think most were just trying to let people make informed decisions. I am very glad it worked out for all... but we really just need to move past it at this point and hope Archon can keep this trend up for future projects.

No one wants to see a company fail... but we also don't want to see plagiarism, shady practices, and people losing their money.

What are you going to say "Ha Ha, this game that was plagiarized and a blatant rip off of DotA2 is delivering on time"?

That's pretty much it. On Dakka, it's "renders are not miniatures." On BGG, it's "miniatures are not games". I'm waiting for the reviews from backers who have played (and maybe own) both Rum and Bones and LOAD. Undead Viking liked LOAD, but said he had not played a MOBA boardgame. Jarek Ewertowski isn't known for his rulesets. I really don't hear mention about his Warzone and Aliens vs. Predator on Dakka or BGG as being particularly popular. (I posted on Dakka that LOAD is being shipped and nobody cares.) I'm definitely curious if anyone will buy a KS edition of LOAD on eBay.

As for miniatures, I received Conan and Myth, and will be backing Mythic Battles and Reaper. That's gonna keep me busy... laugh

People are excited and overall they meeting deadlines and doing awesome.. overall love it compared to bones. Aside from that i think i vested nearly 1k and 0 regrets due to the fact they are delivering and better than most KS out there...

All this hate from retards that pretty much a fanboys of other games just soured good people from buying potentially an awesome game.

Game mechanics being similar and copying things word for word are very different. You are free to have your own opinion but there is no reason to be disrespectful of people with differing opinions and different moral baselines. There was a valid concern here and it was only brought up in response to a backer voicing how they wanted to rub it in people's faces. You clearly don't understand the issue and your choice in words is poor and unwarranted.

While a couple people were hating... most just wanted people to know what they were backing. It is ironic how stupid you think they were given you cannot acknowledge the very real issues at the start of this campaign (and it was not just plagiarism). I am very glad it worked out for backers and will consider Archons future projects due to how well they handled themselves on this one in the end... but I am still very glad I did not back this one. Just my personal opinion on the matter though.

I maybe harsh with my tone but this argument of plagiarism is simply put wrong.. So every game out there can be argued as plagiarizing another (literally).. i aint here to defend Archon..but i would say that their game is much better than the game others are defending (in my opinion). Also Archon stood its ground and doing its best to service its current and future clients.

This is impossible. In mathematics we learn that if X = Y then X and Y are the same. X can not be better than Y if they are the same.

The rulebook for this game was almost verbatim the same as Rum and Bones.

Thunderstone is not a plagiarism of Dominion. While they share similar concepts they are vastly different games. But if I were to draw a small deck of 16 cards and sell it with a an exact copy of the Love Letter rulebook, that would be plagiarism.

This is what happened here. This is what we warned all of you about. The original rulebook was a copy and paste with minor editing of Rum & Bones. And that's not even getting into the potential copyright infringement against DotA 2.

You may think that changing the rules of the game after the KS is enough to make them different, but some of us looked at this blatant ripoff and warned you all that you were buying a set of minis HEAVILY "inspired" by DotA 2 characters and then connected together by a stolen rules set.

Don't serve me a frozen pizza and call it gourmet. If you still decided to back, I hope you have a huge amount of fun with it. But I, like many here, think that the blatant, BLATANT, intellectual property theft going on here is disgusting and should not be praised.
