This is in addition to the fact that this is just a single episode and there are 5 more larger ones to come which puts me off a bit as I don't feel I am getting a full game. I don't mind expansion packs to an already huge game like Skyrim, but episodes .. not comfortable with them.

Another issue that bother me is the RG on the first day of the kickstarter mentioned in an interview that they had surveyed fans before the kickstarter about their prefernce and they preferred a single player rpg. But in his wisdom and far reaching sight said in that same interview that multiplayer is the way forward ignoring fans preference and that is how they designed that game originally. Now few days after the kickstarter he is saying that now they are listening to fans! and they made a single player only part in addition to the multiplayer. This immediatley tells me that they have not thought this through, they are only saying this to get money while the original concept is highly likely to remain, which is fine for people who like MMOs but not for me.
I think part of the problem is people read stuff on a message board posted as fact and think that is what the game is about. Then when shown an actual developers qoute they don't believe them. Spoonfull here for instance is convinced this is a cheap knock off of mount and blade and thinks that is a fact.

I have posted quotes from the start of the campaign to the updates that pretty much say the same thing with added details. It is not as fluid as many of the posts stating facts with no developers comments backing them would make you think it is.
If you don't stand behind your troops, feel free to stand in front.
