Here's the thing. When you've collected the amount of money they have, not only should you already have the game done, you should have already poached every other developer and sub contracted dev teams who could come remotely close to being your competition. Legends of Aria has collected over $200k over their span and had enough money to take their finished engine and throw it into the recycle bin and just subcontract a Chinese company to design their new version from the ground up. Game is also shit and definitely doesn't have the demands SC does but the point is there's no action being put forth with that kind of money
Anyone who is paying for a game that hasn't been released yet is retarded. Why would a company strive to hit deadlines or make a good bug tested game when they already have your money? That goes for preorders and crowd funding. People need to stop being tools and force developer to actually develop their product before they give them money for it.
