  • Warframe or Destiny 2 ?

    WarFrame. It will be around and developed on long after D2 is retired to make space for D3 in 1-2 years.

  • Star Citizen - Squadron 42 Update

    It seems they are trying to avoid the mess from last year when everybody was expecting a SQ42 announcement, probably even a release date, and then got basically nothing.

    Managing people's expectations is half the game, which would not be a problem if they were not at the same time constantly trying to create a hype to keep money flowing. Damned if they do, damned if they don't.

    But right now they seem to be saving some SQ42 hype to not tap it at the same time as SC 3.0 hype. Would be wasted hype, if you still need to keep things boiling for a few more years.

    In the EU they take TAX on the payment: Ergo its a purchase not a donation. No real debate needed. They are under full EU customer protection.
    Lawyers seem to disagree that no debate is needed when it comes to crowdfunding.

    First it needs to be completely know what type of crowdfunding Star Citizen is

    I guess there is not even a consensus on that.


    Have fun

    Nope. Crowd funding does not legally exist. So you have to fit it into one of the two that does exist: Donation or purchase. They take tax, ergo, purchase. No debate.

    The debate is if there SHOULD be separate laws for crowdfunding as neither of the two existing categories fit the philosophy behind it. But from a legal point of view in the EU you are protected as long as the seller has a legal entity in the EU and thus by extension are covered by EU law, which CIG do.

    If you talk companies that raise crowdfunding money in the US from EU citizens without having a legal entity in EU, then, yes, it is a grey area.
