The Goko Dominion Release Prediction Contest!
« on: September 17, 2012, 02:39:09 pm »

Think you've got what it takes to be the game release Nostradamus? Then sally forth with a bold prediction as to when Goko Dominion will officially be (re)released to the public!

Rules:
- Only 1 vote per date. The first post with a particular date will be counted, others will not. Popular dates (such as those coinciding with certain game conventions) may get snapped up quickly, so act fast!
- The closest date will win, with ties going to the later date - for example, if it's released 9/20 and people guessed 9/19 and 9/21, 9/21 would win (yes, it's arbitrary, but you're strategy game players and can take that into account).
- Release is defined as when the game is officially released to the public for the second time (the first being in mid-August 2012), regardless of its condition or even if it needs to be taken down yet again. Note: a beta test is not the same thing as a release.
- Prediction must be posted at least 48 hours before any official release announcement is made, and at least 7 days before the actual release.
- You may not edit your prediction - posts that have been modified will not be counted (with the exception of this one ;))
- You may vote "never", but you must also supply a date at which the official cancellation (or going out of business) announcement is made. If "never" does take it, the closest date wins.

What will you win? Pride! A claim to fame! The love and adoration of hundreds! Or, maybe if you go bug theory, a custom title? :)

My prediction: November 20, 2012.

Since the stakes aren't devastatingly high (although, love and adoration are pretty sweet), I'm OK with people gaming the system to some extent. However, point taken, I'll add a couple more rules that should make this a bit less abusable.

We also need to define launch.  How long does it need to be up to count?  If it launches on Tuesday, but isn't stable till Friday - which date is it?

You may not have intended it, but this is now a valid entry - please specify the date at which they announce their cancellation/going out of business.  8)

Are we talking about the next time it's released or the final time it's released?

The next time.

I'll go with October 25th, 2012.  That's my birthday.  I see that's a common "strategy" in this game, but also it would be sweet if it came out on my birthday, and I got to play it on my birthday, and I won some intangible thing like adoration, etc.

Feb 2nd, 2013, for anything resembling a well made product.  We might see a thing where the store works but the cards are still buggy sometime mid-December.

February 2, 2013 - SharpWave [assuming that Goko will not be released before it's a well-made product]
September 19, 2013 - Schneau [Schneau's birthday]
April 30, 2363 - Yuma [Encounter at Farpoint]
NEVER (announce date of fail not yet predicted) - jsh357


Looks like the predictions so far seem pretty bifurcated between October/Essen optimists and December+ pessimists. Maybe that means the few November people are the realists... :)

Um... my October date was highly pessimistic, not optimistic.

JSYK, when I said my date of 10/20, I had no idea it was during Essen. I didn't even know what Essen was until I Googled (TM) it. I just thought of a date, which was 10/19, saw that it was already taken, agonized for about 5 minutes whether or not to take the day before or after it, and eventually decided pessimistically.

Based on current beta progress, the fact they've got a Q&A lined up and it being the same day of the week as the previous launch (IIRC)

Personally, I think there's a case of blind leading the blind here. People voting November and beyond is pretty absurd, but because it's been happening, people are willing to do it because it doesn't look stupid any more.

Unless there's some major issue that arises, I don't see it not being out by the end of October. It's just, crazy if that happens.

I mean, thinking it'll be out by October is fine, and you might be right, and you might be a favorite to be right.. but calling anything else "absurd" is like super duper infinity absurd. You know this has been in the works for like 16* years by now right with extremely slow progress, and with like 10 major issues and a billion minor issues left to sort out?

I know the issues which are there probably better than anyone not on the Goko team, given I've been the one going through the bug reports and stuff. Maybe I'm being a bit too strong with my prediction there, but, just, for it to not come out in the next six weeks, when all of the big bugs have been sorted and the intent is to go into public beta next anyway, is just, how long can you wait with something like this?

Relative to this predicting group as a whole, though, you're optimistic :)

You're right, I definitely think it's the case of the blind leading the blind. Having my opening post predict November 20 has surely had some effect (note that it's right near the median). But, seeing as a lot of us didn't make the beta, all we have to go on are the tidbits the testers throw us, the nature of software releases in general (just look at Valve), and the way the first release went.

All signs point to DELAY, especially since if they ship another buggy pile of manure, their credibility will completely vanish. If you're right and all the major bugs have been worked out, and they're just polishing it now, I'd love being pleasantly surprised in October. But it would be disastrous if they rushed this thing out again, and my later release date prediction actually indicates optimism at their unwillingness to cave in to a silly marketing deadline a second time if the product isn't ready.

Cool! I haven't heard anything about public beta. From the time they went from closed to live, I thought they were skipping an important step.

But realistically, how is open beta going to be different than the real thing? It seems like it would have the same chance of the server being swamped and people hating their guts.

Actually tdog would win with his prediction of September 29.

But since there has been no official announcement, and people have been reporting crazy bugs, this does not sounds like an official release. Seems like a mistake release, or a really clumsy transition into a public beta. Whatever the case, my faith in Funsockets Dominion is not exactly going up!

Turns out it was intended, and you can give them money now even though all of the adventure act 2s are broken (except maybe base?) and all the act 1's are broken except for DA and Base. And even the act 2 you can play isn't fun.

No, reread the TC's first post.

- Release is defined as when the game officially becomes available to the public for the second time (the first being in mid-August 2012), regardless of its condition or even if it needs to be taken down yet again.

It's a public beta, but it's officially available to the public, regardless of it's condition. Therefore, nobody wins.

That's quibbling, and you know it. The spirit of the contest is the official release, not a beta, public or otherwise. I'll edit the text so rules lawyers will be happy.

If you didn't intend that rule to mean 'Public Beta is okay', then what on earth was it referring to? I had presumed (and my vote very clearly indicates it) that a public Beta counted as a launch. Lots of things go from public beta to final product with basically only minor changes between the two, and some publicity.

Lots of things go from public beta to final product with basically only minor changes between the two, and some publicity.

The rule was supposed to clarify whether it would be the 2nd release, 3rd release, final release, etc. In the event that something like the first release happened, where they had to pull the plug again. I see that the wording was apparently not clear enough.

Anyway, a beta test shouldn't count as an official release. A lot of people (myself included) don't join public betas of games they're not particularly invested in because the bugs will detract or even ruin your initial playthrough of it. It's not finished, it's not something they'd send to press to review (maybe preview), and it's not something that casual fans would really want to put themselves through.

I will join this beta, because it's one of my favorite games, and am willing to help out if I can.

I'd say we're about half way through the guesses at this point! Something in 2013 isn't looking so crazy now!

My belated prediction:

I'm just not seeing how this whole Goko thing can have a happy ending. Maybe they're about 50/50 or 60/40 whether they will get their act together enough to have another (non-silent) release.... but even if they do manage to try another official release I can't see it being a success....

So.... I'm predicting that development and communication will continue to slow down and become more sporadic over the first quarter of 2013, followed by another few months of complete radio silence, and the final announcement that Goko dominion can't be made to work properly won't come until.... 2nd July 2013.

Put it in you're calendar folks.

Performing a bit of thread necromancy, mostly to share my own prediction: late Spring, or whenever Guilds comes out. In the private beta, all of the published cards are now up except for Possession, Black Market, and Stash. It's certainly plausible they'll have all the cards (including Guilds) done by Guilds' release date. Not having all of the cards available at the attempted August launch was one of the loudest complaints I remember seeing over and over, so solving that problem plus having the Guilds available on real life release would be very good for Goko.

Anyway here's the updated list in case anyone's still interested :P


January 21, 2013 - shraeye
February 2, 2013 - SharpWave [assuming that Goko will not be released before it's a well-made product]
Feb 23rd 2013 - Joseph
June 15, 2013 - michaeljb [guesstimation for "late Spring" Guilds release date] (edit note: previously just "Spring")
September 19, 2013 - Schneau [Schneau's birthday]
April 30, 2363 - Yuma [Encounter at Farpoint]
NEVER - July 2 announcement - cactus

Pretty sure 'Spring' is not allowed!

If it is I will go for sometime between 2013 - 20187

Although, guilds release date should be.

If we're allowed to link it to other variable-type dates (like "guild's release date"), then mine is going to coincide with 'Goko's Dominion release date'.

Heh, I have already had a proper guess so you can't really count mine.

Although If I get another one I will go for
