When it rains, it pours. Something is happening at CIG, so I took the opportunity to issue a recap ahead of what's coming.

https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/981930410673360896.html

"they're just focused on check boxes that result in backers spending money, rather than focusing on MAKING AN ACTUAL GAME."

That is so true.

"You have to ask yourself why would a company that - according to them - is publicly raising about $100K per month, resist giving refunds to people for as little as $60. "

Or why they wouldnt just pay off Crytek years ago and keep them on side.

Because they believe they can do anything they like - including screwing their partners - with impunity.
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.

Like seeing all the old references,

Yeah, but don't worry though; the Reclaimer is still on sale!

Star Citizen - State Of The Farce

A PLEDGE IS NOT THE SAME AS A SALE

Derek, you also need to hammer home the fact that CIG is collecting taxes on "pledges".  Either that is grossly illegal, or their "pledges" are in fact, "sales".

Yeah, I have in the past. The fact that they are collecting taxes proves that they are selling things.

BREAKING!! VERY BAD Star Citizen news. It's been in the works for some time now, but like the Crytek lawsuit, I couldn't talk about it.

Standby...

It's a blog now, while I await for a response from my attorney (don't want to jeopardize my liability insurance)  :cat2:
