I specifically made a point about how long it would take your non-paying players to earn the ship, if it takes them 6 months then the only people who own the Pioneer during those 6 months are the ones that have handed over $850 (£1020 / €1020).
The capitals ships aren't meant for solo players, they are meant for guilds to get them and to be played within the fleets of guilds. Not "I'm going to grind for a capital ship for myself".
There are MANY times more ships than there are players, this argument of "U GOTTA PAY OR GRIND FOREVAH!" is ridiculous when you simply join one org and play through what you want with your mates until and if you want, will be able to get one. It's not a race of a linear ship progression forcing you to either pay or grind to properly play.
This tunnel vision that refuses to consider anything else but the initial belief destroys any possible discussion seriously --'

But the only ones that can have access to it are the ones that can pay.
EVERYONE has access to it in game after launch. And all you have to pay for it is a basic pledge package, which was available for as low as 20 bucks.
These guys are living in cuckoo land.

Originally, most of that was supposed to be in 3.0 - but it was postponed for 3.1 I believe.
Meaning, even if there's going to be SOME performance improvement in 3.0 (LIVE version) - it won't be until 3.1 that we're going to see how the planned netcode integration will improve the performance.
Also, it won't be until they have a solid frame-rate that they expand the player count.
This, too, has been made public several times - and yet it seems the detractors are still conveniently forgetting and pretending that this early Evocati build is, somehow, representative of the best CIG can do.
It's the same old bullshit
