The shills in the thread are having a collective meltdown because I showed up and pissed on their parade :)

LOL sc guys are very easy to get going and there is no need to be mean or underhanded etc. Just provide an opposing opinion that is based on evidence, game-play, Chris's own words like landing on capitol ships in 2012, or Chris stating he and a small team made the demo and not crytek.

I find it hard believe that those few left who are still harping about proving Derek wrong are not cig shills or the last insane rich holdouts throwing their money away. CIG has been shown to be so underhanded they are not unlike fraudulent firms that shill every review site like bbb, ripoffreport, trustpilot, as they do on yt comments and elsewhere. While the majority of former backers know their formerly possible refunds are screwed now and try to silently sweep the shame of being a dupe under the rug. (others like FTR have their tantrums hoping their noise will somehow mask how idiotically duped & wrong they were (where they were also badmouthing on ED back then in favor of SC) )

From the thread by 'Oleg'-shill,  "The’ve done all the hardest parts," lol, what a riot.

Extracting 200mil from idiots was the hard part, and they have excelled in that regard, they even managed to plug the refund hole without much of a storm.

With server meshing now the new Jesus tech that is going to make the dream game possible they may be able to drag it out for a few more years, if they can show a bit of progress along the way, meanwhile pushing most content back from patch to patch as usual.

Can't wait for the bullshit that will be the S42 roadmap, remember, they totally had all the missions done guys? Don't forget to multiply the timescale by at least three to get somewhere in the ballpark for a realistic timescale.

It's gaming; so it's not hard to imagine that there will be a bunch of toxic and delusional bad actors in the mix. What's particularly hilarious is that even in the face of IRREFUTABLE evidence, they still try to hold the line. Then when we lol at them, they get mad. :)
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.

Oh that one is going to be epic. I know precisely what they're going to do. They're going to post some public-facing rubbish, while keep the internal one. Just like they did with SC. Then, along the way, items from the internal one will slowly creep into the public one. It's so transparent what they're doing, that the dumb fucks still giving them money, deserve to be scammed.

They just need a faked hack,, break in. disaster to use as an excuse ..  SQ42  it has all gone.... then the backers will forgive them and maybe pay again...

If you ever wondered why this is an absolute train-wreck, this should help you understand it. As one guy said, "It reads like parody, but it's not"

Few issues in the article,


Inspired by the direct-to-consumer success of Minecraft, Chris and a small group of developers began working on a demo that would eventually give rise to gaming’s most successful crowdfunding venture.
 
Not Correct


Chris and the CIG team are enormously grateful for the overwhelming support. To them, $200 million is far more than a figure:

They are grateful alright not but with proper intentions towards backers.


and those at the top admit to being partially culpable for Star Citizen’s mixed reputation.

LOL Absolved Himself

It's all a load of horseshit. Check my Twitter thread

What a farce of an article. Sounds like the author of the article was so ignorant of 'game development' (even basic common sense of a ponzi recognition would suffice) that he himself was in Erin's words, "someone who doesn't understand development or the industry" and just served up as a duped journalist by the brothers, or another paid-off shill.

And so much more stated in this shilled article was just off the wall hilarious or alternately disgusting to digest..

From CR:

…and [you should] have pride that you're running around with a 50-year-old character because you've managed to keep him alive long enough that he's gotten old. ... In Star Citizen, there’s no direct path to winning, and your character grows depending on how you develop them.

Now there's ordinary theory-crafting bullshit, and then there's great theory-crafting bullshit.  But that, that's world-busting weapons-grade theory-crafting bullshit!!  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

I thought r/starcitizen had the most rabid fans but I was wrong - they're in the comments section at Newsweek.  I give you the best and brightest of SC fandom (the author and the 6 other fans who upvoted him):

Quote
I think most people don't realize that this is already more than a game. Of course it's a game first, but it has the potential to revolutionize social interaction. Implementing FOIP is one of the smartest moves I've ever observed a company to make. Using the (for a MMO necessary) framework for interaction opens a new world. Combine this with VR and you have the next killer app.

(Let's not sully this comment with snarky comments about exactly what kind of people are going to take advantage of this particular revolution in social interaction.  I think the Japanese have a word for them but my understanding is that it isn't complimentary.)

I think Newsweek are in line for a Pulitzer for that piece.

I have written to them to complain.

They might as well be promoting Bernie Madoff.
