If there are new facts (like Chris Roberts definitely saying he started work with 10 people in 2011) then i would take these new facts and agree that the project started in 2011. But so far he has not said that. So - based on what we know - i consider April 2012 the starting date.It's a lost cause. CR could have come out and said I started work on this with 10 other people in 2011 and it would still be spun.
If Erillion wants to have this then he can't deny the original due date was nov 2014 like the kickstarter page says. If he's going to use one website date then he has to use another
I think they have something for SQ42, but it is not yet quite ready for primetime. To avoid a repeat of last years' last minute NO GO decision and having a team desperately trying to work on two things at the same time for a single event, they seem to have decided to split the announcements (Alpha 3.0 at CitizenCon and SQ42 at holiday livestream). Seems to me that CIG is able to learn.Vrika said:So, did RSI make this decision because
a) They've got so much other exciting stuff they want to show at CitizenCon, or
b) They can't show anything exciting about SQ42 during CitizenCon?
I can't bring myself to believe into the first alternative.
I understand it will be announced in Decemberrpmcmurphy said:In many ways it's a surprisingly reserved statement about Squadron 42.
Where does this put the release date?
I WAS staying on topic. You call CIG slimey. They have offered refunds for years in a world where most companies do not offer refunds AT ALL after a laughably short period of time (less than a month). They could just kick people out the door if they ask for a refund after a month, like the others do. They could claim that this is a pledge and not a sale. Why do you consider CIGs policy of offering refunds for much much longer "slimey" ? How do you rank then the others on the "slime" scale? Ever got a 5 month refund from Sony ? Or a refund after 8 months from EA ?Hey look at that strawman over there!! I don't care about your boogeyman Derek Smart. We are talking about Star Citizen so please stay on topicErillion said:Slimey compared to what ?And as a stalling tactic to maybe either hope they withdraw their request or maybe forget about it. Either way it's slimey in my eyes
The biggest critic of CIG does not give refunds AT ALL.
How would you rank THAT on your "Slime"-Scale ?
