Good article. Of all the points, their number 1 is key - preparation. Before they even launched the campaign they had a clear concept of what they wanted, how to get there, and importantly for us, what venues to pursue in marketing. We know we want the rights to either acquire GC or fully develop its spiritual successor from the ground up (or both), but other than that I'd say the details are pretty fuzzy. Near as I can tell, we don't know right now what the funding would be utilized for if we ever did get funded. At the moment everyone is just volunteering their time so it's not as if we have salaries to pay. You had mentioned this in the other thread but even a basic organizational structure is lacking right now. All of it would have to be ironed out before a kickstarter.

No Marcos. I'm against that.

The reason why is because it isn't an accurate measurement of player skill.

Not everybody wants to be "on" all the time. Sometimes it's fun to just mess around. But if the game is constantly collecting "stats", you are always under the microscope.

Besides: stats are extrinsic measurements. There is a great deal of intrinsic strategy that the numbers cannot gather. For example, the stats cannot measure at all what military people would call "shaping operations": suppression or deception attacks, feints, defensive maneuvers that compel the enemy to move into a different player's kill zone (where the other player gets the points for the kills); that kind of thing.

The numbers tell only half the story.
