I've been waiting my entire life for this kind of gaming experience. I think alot of people who are in doubt or still think it is a scam will be epically surprised at how engaging this game will be. The scale of what they have is huge now and itis still in alpha. I will not use the word potential because it is beyond that point.

I still like Black Desert Online, but S.C. is just better.

Can't wait for 3.0 :chuffed:

    3.0 will be a breakthrough for sure and there is something bothering me: There will be a huge increase in many things, demanding more power, yet they seems confident about 3.0 - which makes me wonder if they have a performance patch card on their sleeve ready to pull out in case of bad press.

    it's alpha, not even optimized. if we get to beta and maybe 3 betas before launch and it is still feels bulky, that is when to worry

    Can I borrow the time machine you used to check what kind of game Star Citizen will be?

    In my experience, MMOs tend to run worse the longer they exist, with launch only being special in that way more people play, and therefore perfomance going down. Otherwise, nothing changes. I didn't see any miracle performance patch anywhere, either. Usually nothing changes, sometimes it gets even worse.

    Maybe SC will be different, they sure have enough time left until launch to at least try. But given the history of MMOs or games in general, im skeptical.

    It had bloody well better be amazing for the amount of money they're taking. If a publisher was to announce they had a budget of $550 million and increasing you'd expect the best game ever.

    I'm sure the game will be enjoyable but it's only prudent to wait and see what it's like when you get to play it, not what some razzmatazz-hollywood-style-engineered-demo-made-purely-for-Gamescom shows you.

    Look at what happened to No Man's Sky and all the hype that surrounded that project...

    "Publisher"? "550 m"? What are you talking about?

    Another person in denial about NMS, huh?

    You haven't seen this I assume?

    $122 million * 4.5 equals equivalent budget of $550 million



    NMS is down to 38% positive on Steam, concurrency has dropped from 200,000+ to 4000 in 2 weeks, there might be denial going on but it most certainly isn't from me.

    I played it during the free 3 day weekend and was also amazed by it. I bought myself a ship, but gonna wait till they fix more of the bugs.

    The game crashes way too much in its current state. But once that stuff is fixed and they release the rest of the content they've been working on, this game will easily stand out on its own as a one of a kind experience I don't think you'll be able to get anywhere else.

    Likewise, mine looks like something from a Blue Peter project, I'm thinking a washing-up bottle with cardboard wings blu-tacked on the top and bottom with a couple of straws sellotaped to the sides, aka the masterful Aurora LN.

    Your interpretation of that slide is wrong. $120m doesn't magically become $550m, it's the other way around what is left for the development on the $120m funding is x4 higher without a publisher.  

    A publisher made game with the same budget ($120m) would only see ~$24m for the development (see the $12/$60 minus 20% royalties), while CIG  gets over $100m to allocate for development.

    We are still YEARS away from an actual retail launch.  The current game takes over 24gigs of space for a single system and we dont even have real planets yet.  We also dont really know what the monitization model will be.  If most of the money goes toward development, will the cash shop really sustain CIG after launch?

    The little we have right now looks nice but we still have a long, long way to go and lots of unanswered questions before we start shouting from the rooftops that Chris Roberts is the king.

    The denial is not about NMS crashing hard, I was expecting that. The denial is about who's fault it is. The fact people still defends the development team trying to blame players imagination where all their interviews and videos and demos are out there to see amazes me.

    It won't matter anyways as those people were never prepared to be impressed anyways. The rest of the backers who have followed the game will be happily playing out their roles ingame!

    That's just rewording what I said, if per your example, a publisher backed $122 million is equivalent to $24 million crowdfunded then a publisher backed $550 million game would be roughly equivalent to a $122 million crowdfunded.
    What I originally said was "If a publisher was to announce they had a budget of $550 million (and increasing) you'd expect the best game ever."

    It seems the knee-jerk response is alive and well (not aimed at you), rather than reading and understanding or perhaps asking for clarification people like @Nyctelios just misinterpret what's written and make a bunch of assumptions.

    No misinterpretation here, just good and old skepticism I use on anything.

    The misinterpretation is your field of action. I don't want to steal your job.

    Haha. There's no misunderstanding on my part, you don't get to throw this back on me.

    Here's what I wrote
    $122 million * 4.5 equals equivalent budget of $550 million
    The important bit being equivalent budget. If I misunderstood then I wouldn't have used those words to clarify in the first place.

    If you want to claim I misunderstood then you're going to have to do better than just saying the words.
