For EU and AUS this won't work. The 3.0 is not the finished product, so they have to keep on refunding. Since they are lacking the money already and will not generate any new income as soon as 3.0 is released as the MVP, it'll be all over soon anyway...

Sure, but going bankrupt is probably a decent enough exit strategy for the people at the top. Not so great for the lineworkers that won't get paid though.

Going bankrupt won't save Chris and his croonies. When CIG crashes, the real drama will start.

Yup, that's basically going to be the most hilarious part of the farce.
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.

It has the feel of a last little desperate push for cash before the ELE :laugh:

It's gotten so out of hand that everything they write at this moment is pure science fiction itself.

Thing is, as was proven back when they came "clean" and posted a massive list of bugs, they are STILL withholding the true amount of issues in the project. Which means, given how massive 3.0 is, there are probably 1000+ bugs in there, added to the 3000+ still in 2.6.3

You could argue the drought began at either GrimHex or Star Marine when you compare the number of releases before each event to the number afterward.

I've never seen this sub reddit so salty. When you lay out the timeline as above, it's painfully apparent how little progress has been made. I'm sure it won't stop the whales emptying their wallets at the holiday sale to keep the project stumbling on for another year.

What's truly remarkable about it is there is nobody at all claiming that the negative remarks are coming from trolls or DS alts!

BTW, speaking of the drought - I haven't noticed anybody in any recent reddit thread attributing delays to "tool development" such that things will move faster in the future once all this great tooling-under-development is in place!  So maybe that excuse is finally retired.

There are still a few folks - even in this thread! - claiming the delay is due to all the awesome unprecedented "tech" being developed in this game.  AFAIK most of this "tech" (e.g., the magic Subsumption!) has yet to be seen outside of subscriber videos, and some of it isn't even seen there, only talked about.  (I myself have developed, over the past few years, a sublinear exact solution to the Travelling Salesman Problem, it's awesome tech, and I'll be releasing it as soon as I finish polishing it...)

Final comment: short memories!  There are still people - even in this thread! - claiming that 3.0 is a major advance and denying that any cuts have been made to it since it was "announced" by CR.

It's almost as though the SC defenders have finally run out of excuses.

I can't wait for 3.0 to go live and turn out to be a massive disappointment -> GET A REFUND
