I really wonder if he believes what he is saying? Or could it be more sinister and hes's on the payroll and look his  audience dead in the eye and lie about it.

Montoya is deep inside his sunk cost fallacy. He's invested so much time, money and passion into making Star Citizen a reality he cannot step back to see what a disaster it's become.

He's clearly also an idiot.

LOL Already getting replies on his vid still defending away, he's at 169 videos totaling 7.09gb.

I doubt he's on CIG's payroll. I can guarantee he is making a profit off his org however. Either in viewer count, guild donations, and other avenues. The guy seems to have a pretty big ego, one he directly links to his status as leader of his enormous org and likes to be the center of their attention. Idk if TEST is on other games, but it seems SC is a big chunk and he obviously likes the attention and celebrity status. Without SC he might get a good dose of reality realizing is probably not a big shot in "the real world". I know a ton of guild leaders just like him across many games.

He lies, deflects, brings on false equivalencies about everything.  And when confronted with facts he automatically triggers with an ad hominem.

He's simply an awful human being.

He isn't pulling many punches...

Let's see how long before Shitizens descend on him.
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.

Looks like he's going to be responding to all these top streamers shitting on Star Citizen. He did a similar rebuke video after SidAlpha did his last week.

So pathetic.

Yes, all of that - and more. These are the guys I am going to be completely ripping to shreds in the coming months. Just wait. Two Weeks.

You have done a great job, Derek exposing these pathetic people. Being a gamer, you have taught me a lot of how things work behind the Developers doors.

I believe once all this crashes crowdfunding will die unless we have some type of laws (even though I don't trust any Government to help, they tend to make things more complicated) enacted to protect the gamers. If not, what Roberts has done could kill the gaming development and really hurt us gamers wanting better and exciting games.

Wait, aren't only entertainment industry professionals allowed attendance at E3? Since when is common folk and amateurs allowed on the venue?
