Bah, I wish he'd gone for Imperator instead. But interesting, may have to back that Kickstarter...

From what I've read it seems they are aiming for a pure RVR MMO, with no PvE involved - curious how that'll work.

If it's exclusively PvP, I won't play it, even if I can.  I don't have a lot of patience for some 13-year-old yelling four-letter-swearwords at one another and at me for percieved slights and trying to tell me how to play.  If I play anything that's purely-PvP, I play it with friends and friends alone, and if I can't do that, then I'm out.

Most RvR games like this don't let you hear the opposing players, it's usually something like "Midgard Invader says something you can't understand".

Dark Age of Camelot is still running with a solid player base (small, but it's a niche game and that's the niche this game is going for) and there are other PvP-based games out there now or upcoming that are also looking to net that niche audience.

I think it's pretty ballsy to say outright that you're not looking to appeal to the players that don't fit your niche.  They know the audience they're making the game for and tailoring exactly to meet that audience's needs rather than going for something with more broad appeal that would get more subscribers.
