I feel dev team need to hire someone who knows the marketing well (In real life) .
Right now, they have a lot of great designer, creator, coder. But what they miss is the experience to run the MMO server game. They don’t know how new players feel and what’s the fact to attract new players join the game.
Right now they are creating the art not game for majority of players on market. The game is way too “unique”, it cause new players require to spend a lot of time to learn from third party source (youtube, forum, discord…etc) which not a good direction, and those extremely long crafting time make people who has job kind of impossible to stay in the game.
Also their promotion skill is terrible too. So far their website still looks like hell, and those video trailer clearly out-date and unreal. Right now i feel boundless become the fan made game which only target people who can enjoy the game.
Under these condition, i don’t really feel the pricing is that much important, because those thing i mention above affect new players more i believe. As i mention many times, right now its way too hard for new players, and way too easy for old players. Its way too “balance”.
- Especially find a graphic and web designer to design a modern website (responsive website) only cost them around $1500 - $2500 CAD, its really not a huge amount of money for company like them. Same for the video trailer too.
Its so hard to believe after half year since release, all their promotion aids still the same. Its really unbelievable.
