"Recent "big ask" for another round of investments." *facepalm* There is CitizenCon coming. Oh wait, let me correct that. WAS coming.

Didn't they already cancel CitizenCon this year?
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.

Yes, pretty much as soon as the situation with the 'vid became clear.

This fucking thread. lol

CRoberts complains about cynicism and internet discourse over his handling of the project. I wonder now that maybe the majority of that is from backers rather than from onlookers.

So a Star Citizen backer is still running numbers in a bid to figure out how the backer numbers are skewed/inaccurate. His conclusion:

- 75% of 2.8m accounts are non-backers
- 720K are backers with skin in the game
- 62k backers are concierge ($1000+ spent)
- 142+ backers with Million Mile High Club access ($10k+ packs)
- 34k subscribers (pay each month)

Interesting numbers but sadly since 2016 that is a large rise from the numbers turbulent gave. Joe whoever he maybe is out in full force,

So CIG has released an official statement about that Redditor's number

In addition, we found that the information shared was an incomplete pull of data for a couple of reasons related to Spectrum. This resulted in the number of actual backers being underreported by over 60%, with the Concierge count for different thresholds also being underreported

Basically he's saying that if correct, the current backer count is either about 1,152K or 1.8M.
