That's why publishers and developers who fund and manage games, have competent producers who plan and foresee these things.

We all remember when Alex Mayberry left in July 2015.

Why would someone with that XP leave such a historical project as Star Citizen at that time ?   

Even though he said it was personal circumstances.  If everything was going well,  Chris should have bent over backwards to accommodate him.   

Alex was apparently back in work a couple of months later.

Together with Derek's analysis this was the writing on the wall for sensible people.

FTR has a follow-up video

Wow, he was a former $10k backer , lol, no wonder. I'm having a good laugh at how he's turned with the wind but not having got away scott-free from his washy history since he still gets 64% majorly downvoted. He should have been alerting others to get their refunds or greymarket liquidation while he was quietly doing his own before it was too late, but he was busy having reactive tantrum videos and dissing ED in at least two videos. One baseless potshot at ED in part II about ED planetoids being "barren" supposedly just like SC's couple of moons except failed-to-report ED has billions of different planetoids. Anyway, I guess it's harmless now since he's relaying more of the points made about the ponzi and financial shenanigans from this forum. The sooner CIG collapses the better so the SEC investigations and clawbacks can begin.

Travis and Chelsea Day. They both went to Blizzard.
Star Citizen isn't a game. It's a TV show about a bunch of characters making a game. It's basically "This is Spinal Tap" - except people think the band is real.

Good memory, I really like them or at least to me they were much more sincere with the belief they were going to deliver a game.

Found this when doing some research into these two

https://relay.sc/article/cig-illfonic-innterview

"CCT: So how much input has Chris Roberts put into the FPS side of gameplay?

KG: Since the very beginning, Chris has worked with me a lot on making sure all the stuff from the design stage to the actual implementation has been on point with what he sees is gonna be the thing he wants for the full vision. Hes definitely been more involved, especially from the beginning he told me, hey, this is kind of how i want things to be. And then I went up, we kinda just designed the high level features and concepts and bounced them back, and weve just been bouncing back ideas until everything has been put into production, so hes been very involved"

and we all know what happened

http://www.kotaku.co.uk/2016/09/29/what-happened-to-star-marine-star-citizens-missing-module

Laughable CRoberts screw up that showed he couldn't even manage an FPS module.

I'm not able to think outside the "box" on SC and this is why I'm not enjoying the game.

Hey, remember when I said Ben was no longer employed by CIG. Then he moved. Then everyone denied it. And then it turned out to be true?

Last week I tweeted a goodbye to people (several) exiting the project in Dec.

In the latest broadcast, Lando just claimed he was going on a MONTH LONG vacation. FF @ 1:33:32

Maybe Chris is being charitable to his shill spokesman since 3.0 was such an astounding success probably due to the vacations maybe Lando is on his way for yacht ride?

I think his inspiration for procedural planets came from No Man's Sky and Elite. How many concept jpg you sell for this gift?

Disclaimer: Neither myself, nor those whacky Goons have anything to do with this.

Star Citizen backers who, 6 yrs later, don't have a game to play, are petitioning US govt to make SCREEN SHOTS (from Star Citizen ofc) derivative works.

Not even joking.

Wow had not seen or heard about this one this seems like it could turn into a mess. I could really take me time and get almost identical screens shots that people have taken then wait for them to sue me and have a field day with them. Games that can be heavily modded would be much more difficult but still so many are not.

I was happy to learn of the existence of "screenshot artists" - final proof - if any more was needed after years and years of looking at "public art" and "art" hung on the wall (with a pricetag) at the local cafes - that the culture has completely lost the distinction between "art" and "craft".

But I guess this allows stay-in-mom's-basement-all-day video game players to claim they're actually "artists" just like all the "creative" baristas out there - and the people who are working on the next great screenplay too ...
