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.

I wrote a thread about the latest CIG filing, with emphasis on a glaring shocked in Ortwin's affidavit.

Ortwin seems like just another conman, creating hype to keep the money gravy train going no wonder he and Chris have
been working together for so long. Thx for going through the legal docs.

What happened to the settlement? Is it still in the air or did Crytek tell CIG to blow it out their airlock?

There was never a settlement. CIG tried to bring it up months ago, but Crytek said they weren't interested until after discovery.

It clearly says, in option C of the second poll you reference, 'continue to offer stretch goal rewards in addition to extra features...'

So 88% of people, bothered enough to vote, said yes to extra features. I feel you're lying about others lying.

My post stands as was originally written because I don't write blogs for complete morons.

Quote
Each time it comes up that the game’s scope had been increased to a level that had set the project on a course to failure, CIG and their devout cultists would trot out the “backers voted for scope increase” lie, and which they have since used as an excuse for the project’s on-going demise. They completely disregard points raised that the poll data doesn’t show any consensus or agreement in any of the options, since not even a simple majority agreed on any one option despite each participant being allowed to select three choices. They were given three votes each, and they still failed to put any of the choices above a 40% support threshold; suggesting that there was no majority support from the community for any of the stretch goal choices in the poll. As some pointed out, given three instead of one choice should have ultimately pushed any choice to 50% or higher. In the end, the poll clearly showed that CIG did the poll, ignored the results, then went on to increase the scope of the project – even beyond the poll choices! That basically negated the poll in its entirety, thus rendering it moot.

FYI, that option C in that $19M poll had THREE conditional qualifiers to a SINGLE question "what should we do with the crowd-funding counter after we reach our goal". That goal being the $23M.

1) keep it up through development

2) continue to offer stretch goal rewards

3) in addition to extra features and development milestones

That you call me lying, even though I posted the poll, complete with results and anecdotes, was a nice touch.

:emot-lol:

Tweet from the American Bar Association about the Forbes article

https://twitter.com/ABAesq/status/1126313360885198849

"The story of Star Citizen,  a crowdfunded video game that raised more than $200 million and still hasn't been released after seven years: ambar.org/301YPEB"

My response

"When the ABA starts tweeting about the multi-Million Dollar Star Citizen scam, the @FTC and @AGBecerra probably aren't far behind. But they're probably waiting until the scam hits the $500M mark before they take action to protect consumers."

So 88% isn't a majority? Ok.

Extra features were part of the poll answer that received the 88% majority.

But somehow, anyone using the fact that 88% of voters wanted extra features as an argument are lying?

You are so weird...

I find it quite silly to point towards are poll generally asking if people would want more...
That's like some rockband asking you if you'd wanted another album of them, while you liked the first on or the teasers for the first. Surely you'll say yes.
But that doesn't mean whatever comes after that is in really legitimized by your vote on another album.

The whole bullshit with StarCitizen is that CRoberts have lied about timetables and giving full insight into finances.
People simply can't make informed decision about additional features or what should be added if they're not informed of the costs. And people have never be informed of any of that with this 'great transparent' development project. Most budget wise estimations in terms of time have been bullshit.
