LoL's finances solved. Add Battle Royal game mode?

Shoot ‘em Up
Preview a new high-octane game mode coming to Star Citizen

At 5pm during CitCon there is a strange presentation titled shoot'em up.

So...

Just watching the CitizenCon stuff. The Theatres of War features seems like a really good idea: a game mode built to be fun and fast by a guy who knows how to make games.

BUT is this game mode too good? It looks like much more fun that the PU. Will Chris allow it? Especially if it proves more popular than his dream screenshot / walking simulator?

To be fair, it did look pretty good didn't it? Looks like a game. A fun game at that. Worm tunnel things looked fun too. Could be worth keeping an eye on this Star Citizen thing.

My point is that the ToW sub game could easily overshadow the PU (and SQ42 for that matter). If people only play ToW then what incentive do they have to buy JPEGs? Perhaps they'll run it on laggy servers to make it less popular, just as they cancelled the preview at CitizenCon when the queue got too long and they worried not enough people would attend the talks.

There is no game and there never will be. If anything, Citizen Con showed clearly no progress at all. No news, no updates, no new jpgs, nothing of substance according with the 500+ devs working a whole year. And Chris showed it too. It is game over and he knows it. There won't be a Citizen Con 2020. His "this is it, the end" was in regard to the whole SC fiasco.

Nah, I think they've done enough to convince the whales to keep it going for another year.

Although, I thought it was interesting that there wasn't a brand new ship to sell this year. Come to think of it: there seemed to be fewer new JPEGs to buy this year, apart from the minelayer. Either I haven't been following it or perhaps CIG are concentrating more on the whales via private channels to raise funds.

PS. and no sign of Sandi on stage - unless I missed it.

Where the hell was Squadron 42? The game has 10 months left in development until beta release.

Would love to bet on that with you. I'm pretty sure it's not the first time that claim has been made. Next year's conning of citizens will happen. €50 says so.

They basically went out and made Line Of Defense  :emot-allears:

This is the thing, as long as they keep expanding the scope of the game, while not completing previous promises, they never - ever - have to finish it.
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.
