In their desperate, and probably final, attempt for cash, they've made complete fools of themselves. There is no justification for this move and everybody will see it for what is is, a pure cash grab that can only mean that all the money is gone. There is no other way to look at this. Even the types like Joe Blobers know it. Anyone that doesn't, has the brain of a paramecium. To be fair, several parameciums have stated that Star Citizen is a scam...

They know. They ALL know. But of course the zealots are going to continue defending the farce because there can be no other way.

I don't care what anyone says, to me this is a move to obtain money from questionable sources without any paperwork. That's a classic money laundering move by those who would take advantage of such an enterprise to pour money into, with a promise of being able to get it out (clean) at the backend.

No. It's always 2+1 weeks remaining :)
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.

Well, it looks like Chris nailed it. The final nail in his own coffin that is. He's created so much negative attention to Star Citizen, there's no way he can pull off a stunt like this again.

The comments in all of these articles are overwhelmingly calling SC a scam.

Yeah, it's a big difference to how things were even a few months ago. You also now have the gaming media treating SC like a joke - it feels as though people are turning against the project now.

All the zealots have retreated into their SC Reddit bunker to await The End.

Meanwhile, even the guys over at Motherboard are in on the $27K DLC action.

"Roberts Space Industries did not return our request for comment."

Fortune magazine? This is PRECISELY what's going to happen when what's coming next, hits. Hint: they are OUT of money.

"Fortune reached out to Roberts Space Industries, Star Citizenís developer, for comment, but did not receive an immediate response."

I know there is more. After all, this is CIG.

So, just hint on every one if we're in the right direction...

- CIG is almost broke. Frantically trying by downsizing, office closure etc. to fix some sort of skeleton crew to uphold the Kickstarter (as long a we are working on it, we're covered)
- By changing offices and company names etc. they are trying to create corporate entities to take on all the responsibilities and liabilities without them having a repercussion for Chris and partners
- They set up some sort of IP rights contruction were Chris sold and bought his own rights back and forth for millions in a way that all rights remain his to use again after CIG collapses
- Some heavy investor is trying to get his money back
- they defaulted on one or more loans
- one or more governments are chasing after CIG because of tax-fraude and stuff. Selling with added taxes but never actually paying them. The Australian government really likes that.
- Sandi officially divorced from Chris and to avoid having to testify against him officially registered as a UK Citizen. Just to be on the safe side, she married Erin.

Of course, the last one happened after Chris caught Sandi having a treesome with Jared and Ben and him having revenge sex with Alexis in return.

The trouble with downsizing / shutting a studio (if that's what is happening) is that once that is made public, however they try and spin it, it looks like they're running out of cash. Then things start spiralling out of control and they're finished.

I suspect they'll desperately try and maintain the fiction that everything is going fine right up to the point where Chris flies off on permanent holiday to Ecuador with the remaining cash.

I guess their biggest problem is trying to get their loans payed back fast before the Banks start asking difficult questions.

Hold that thought. 2 weeks + 1

Oeh, I know, I know. Aren't they due to publish their numbers in the UK by July first? And there is no way to avoid that any longer, so they have to show the whole world that all the money is gone without anyhing but the current pre-alpha crap to show for? But including almost a million dollar per year per company for Chris. And for Sandi. And for Erin. And for Ortwin. Something like that?

Yes, but this is all so obvious that I said the same thing over a year ago already  :laugh:
