Q: "CIG why are you pushing backers to bring in more and more players now when you lack any form of New Player Experience?"

A: "Because it's not about your player experience. This is about our banking experience."

A Because they wont look beyond the glitzy visuals after a personal recommendation.

A $27K whale is upset....over the price of a JPEG. I kid you not.

Oh, JPEG sale analysis.

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.

Buried in the discussion, this guy eager to leave (@n13L5) seems to be completely unaware of current options and procedures to get a refund.

Maybe someone with a Spectrum account should shout out to him and provide some links?

More evidence mods on the sub-Reddit either paid by CIG or something. A 4K upvoted thread critical of CIG deleted. Now backers are wondering why. So far, no explanation whatsoever - not even by the mods.

UPDATE: It's back now.

Money laundering.

Quote
Here's the scam as I understand it:

1) Advertise that you will give X referrals for ~50% of the price of the accounts, i.e. 10 for $200.

2) Wait until someone sends you the cash. Now buy the accounts with their money plus a bit of your own. Use the person's referral code, they've got what they paid for.

3) You now own 10 accounts that you got at essentially half price. Sell them off at 70-80% normal price on the grey market, or convert to RSI cash and sell that off. This is where you begin to profit.

4) Extra scam step- refund your accounts.

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'll just leave this here... https://www.reddit.com/r/starcitizen/comments/670yy2/i_was_trying_to_figure_out_why_the_defender/

Yeah, I actually have that in the missive I wrote on Friday.
I was looking at that.

Of the three issues, probably the least likely is the Banu image, assuming the Banu don't speak like Groot. There's a family resemblance but I wouldn't say they were the same.

Now, the Star Kitty and the Defender? Those look a BIT more derivative.

I remember hearing somewhere that CR does not have a strong sense of creativity -- that the Kilrathi in WC were -blatantly- modeled off the Kzinti, from Niven's Known Space. If so, this is just more of the same.
