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.

...spin-offs are still better for all of the previously cited reasons.
But not strictly better, because the spinoff can have a different cost than the expansion.

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.

It's not really a beta if they are charging real money.

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

August 4th, 1997!
