NLG2Campaign Shutdown

Dear friends!

Today, our team decided to cancel the crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.

Unfortunately, because of several faults it did not attract much attention, and therefore did not raise the funds required for the development. We want to apologize for it and ask for forgiveness of those who decided to donate. Your money will be returned to you soon.

However, it’s too early to mourn Armies of Azeroth, as we are planning to start preparations for the new crowdfunding campaign taking into account all the sticking points that we have encountered before.

Soon we will launch several polls in order to figure out your preferences to establish the right priorities of our mod development. Based on the results of these polls we will start preparation for a new crowdfunding campaign and will fight for the future of our mod!

We hope that the next one will be much more successful and will attract much more attention around the world. In case of failure, we will be forced to suspend our work on the mod until the official release of Warcraft IV.

Our development team hopes for your understanding and will continue the development of the mod.

Thank you all in advance for your helping Warcraft: Armies of Azeroth come true!

One more bit of attention! At this moment, crowdfunding campaign is closed, so please, don’t let any gossip or provocation fool you while there is no information on our official pages and inside maps themselves.In a pinch, specify the information from our managers.

Good luck on the battlefield!

Best regards,
WAA Team

I think many people ignore your crowdfunding campaign and do not donate because you are in the end, developing just a mod for a game. But saying that, still StarCrafts mod got it's funding. I do hope you find a good way to continue development.

Kickstarter is better choice instead Indiegogo.

Let me elaborate for the people saying Kickstarter "is better than indiegogo."
I think its two things.
1) Kickstarter is more known than indiegogo, people are more inclined to participate in a platform they're familiar with.
2) The whole funds are taken regardless if goals are met thing probably puts people off from contributing. Think of it like this. When Warcraft: AA was stagnating at like $1000 for the longest time, why would anyone want to invest their money in something that is no where near the stated goal? Its definitely a factor.

For those asking about Kickstarter, last time I checked, Kickstarter was only available to you if you lived in America. If I'm not mistaken, the WAA team is based in Russia?

I don't know about it, One of my friend launched a kickstarter campaign from the UK, moreover there are many campaigns from Hungary too, where I live. Kickstarter FAQ reads: "Project creation is currently available to individuals in the US, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Denmark, Ireland, Norway, Sweden, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Austria, Belgium, Switzerland, and Luxembourg", But you can partner up with a US, or appropriate member of EU citizen or company too.

I have a general idea how they both work, but isn't kickstarter for your own projects like original ideas???

"In case of failure, we will be forced to suspend our work on the mod until the official release of Warcraft IV."

WC IV ??? Heh this mean you are bailing out. Let me tell you how I see it. You got the skills to make something great out of this project, but your marketing is lacking. You are spreading to thin in different areas of the project. IMHO you don't need a campaign this early in the dev stage. Only because some noobs are screaming ''do a campaign'' in your FB page it does not mean that this is the right path to go. People who prefer campaign before competitive playing, are the ones who play your game few days may be weeks and move on. Don't replay on them, if you do that you will procrastinate the development cycle, and most likely you will fail.

Concentrate on the competitive side of the game. Make 4 races and 10 good maps, invite known WC3 solo players and make 1-2 show tournaments. This way, your project will gain visibility. Most of the players will share the event on their social media profiles and will stream on twitch. This will bring you huge traffic. If you do that you will have a complete product, more people will be willing to donate.

Fix things like pathing of the unites, work on better models in order to improve the user experience while players are microing their units, clear some obvious bugs and I bet that till the end of 2016 you will have pretty tight community of early adopters. After that you can build campaigns and what ever you want, the funding will come for sure as well.

I shared one of your official videos in some hardcore wc3 community, you know what people said? ''Yeah we know about that project, it's live since 2 years and it only have 2 races...'' Think about it for a second what would be the reason for this players not to play your mod if there was 4 races and 5-8 of the most popular maps? Remember campaigns are played for a few days, competitive games are played every day for years!

One more tip build your official web site with blog, art gallery, little forum, and donation page. People will take you more seriously, no doubt about that.

Good luck.
