They also recently settled (out of court) the lawsuit filed against them couple of years back. Click on this link, then on the case summary.

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.

Expecting a new surprise concept ship sale next week. A dreadnought class spaceship loaded with all kinds of weapons. It is built to withstand heavy close combat and engage in long drawn out battles without resupply. They will call it the Crytek.

Count me in!!

BTW, thinking about those engaging capital ship battles, combat arenas and mechanics in the Dreadnought game... another thing we'll never see in Star Citizen, the self-proclaimed BDSSE.

Huh, Skadden is even bigger than I expected. Crytek is really going for it here.

4th largest law firm in the world (by revenue). Can you even imagine Ortwin going up against these guys? It would be a massacre.

The bigger they come the harder they fall...

The thing is .. Skadden think there is meat here...from one side or the other and a reasonable issue that suits their business model...thats why the little o is screwed.

Reading your Tweets about Skadden really put it in perspective, I knew CIG were screwed, but this is being screwed on a different magnitude.

It was interesting that Leonard French thought that the case, as written, probably indicated that they want a settlement. I'd guess that Crytek have a solid case (hence getting Skadden on board) but don't want to make too much of a fuss and just want a cut of the action as originally promised.

I'd be putting my money on CIG trying to string things out as much as possible, so no early settlement, then hoping that everyone forgets about the case in the new year and buys more ships in the next sale. However that might depend on what other bad stuff is going to happen next week !!   :supaburn:

I'd wager CIG do not have the money to settle.

Ditto. Aside from that Ortwin may still be a major partner with Robbers. If so it might behove him to provide sufficient legal services to keep the cash cow making milk. I'm sure he will charge CIG for his services and the backers will pay every dime of the cost. THey won't figure out that the whole situation was created by the wonder twins trying to scam Crytek and now CIG was scamming the backers doubly.  What a bunch of Nimrods.
