  • NCSoft Seeks to Crowdfund NA Regional Championship Pool - Blade & Soul - MMORPG.com

    Sure why not? We already pay people to try and make games, why not have us pay for the tournaments too? Hey, maybe next time you guys can bring out a "send our whole team to disney land" lotto box too so we can pay for your vacations as well.

  • Black Squad Closed Beta Key Giveaway - General News

    I think they changed the name to "Non-binary, racially ambiguous, gender fluid, pan sexual squad"

    That is less offensive and has a much better ring to it anyway I think....

  • Star Citizen Ships - What is the attraction?

    People are not buying ships.

    The backers give money so that the game they always wished for becomes reality.
    Oh really? So then why is there a giant list of ships with various prices on them? Why don't they just have a button on the site that says donate here to make your dreams come true? It would be so much easier wouldn't it? 

    I wish you guys the best of luck making that idiotic argument in court some day as if this is some charity people are donating too. You people really do live in a fantasy world if you think that is going to fly.

  • CIG deal with Coutts & Co?

    From FQ42's financials, they have taken loans since 2015. The difference between that and this last one is that the guarantees given to the bank are of the IP itself.

    But that is highly irrelevant because they do have a constant stream of funding, independent of what they need the loan for, so they don't run the risk of failing the contract.
    Constant stream of funding huh? They only have funding as long as people keep throwing money at them for something that doesn't exist yet. That stream can very quickly reverse flow if people start losing confidence in the project. This would actually be a great way for Roberts and his crew to eject from the project. Take out a huge loan, cash out, default on the loan and dump the entire company off to the creditors. Then he has the perfect excuse to disappear. The truth is no one really knows how much money they have raised or how much has been spent because they have no obligation to do so. Only time will tell, but the longer this goes on for, the bigger disaster this is going to be if it doesn't pan out.
