Getting closer



Approx 750K behind 2014 & 2015, and almost 1M behind 2017. 2016 is out of sight
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.

Those are the specific time stamps for two separate tracking on the same day.

Hope they're reducing their burn rate to match their new income or the whole thing will implode in an instant as DS has often warned.

(Just kidding.  I'm not really hoping that.)

Those guys are a special kind of stupid.

By latest metrics, about 175 whales bought the Kraken with warbonds (new cash money) @ $1,400.

And they *claim* (it's bs) to have 2M backers.

Basically, Star Citizen is where it has been since 2016 whereby a few whales are paying for those who don't pay anything anymore or who just have a base package. This is the standard model for F2P games; except those are completed products.

When the final end comes, it's going to be all kinds of hilarious because it hasn't occurred to whales yet that it's not a sustainable model when you have about 450 people working worldwide and you have a burn rate of approx $4m a month in which key studios are literally insolvent (according to their UK financials).

Something's gotta give. Which explains the quiet exits, inability to hire top talent etc.

You can't fix stupid, but you can laugh at it.

I find it hard to believe that many people bought the ship that quickly with new cash. Is it likely that they knew Citcon was going to under perform so they did this whole wave release gig to cover a serious padding of the funding chart to make sure their little meter wasn't low, but also didn't arouse suspicion like their usual mystery people deciding to buy completion packages randomly?

I was going to say that this Kraken is possibly the only Kraken these dweebs are going to get in their lifetimes.   

Even after paying for it. 

But they are not getting this either !

Yeah, no fracking way that funding chart is real. They're not even hiding it anymore.

OMG their shitty scam marketing tactics must really work! This is the most successful citiCON concept ever.

The whales must have been circling in their waves to cause those big spikes as soon as they were able to purchase, well played CIG.  :rolleyes:

Exactly. Even disregarding the +- errors in the funding chart, those spikes precisely show how they work the scam to milk their most avid backers. Trust me when I tell you this, the ending is going to be all kinds of glorious. Just wait.
