They deservedly get beaten up for the length of their development, but their focus has been on making the actual technology to allow massive amounts of players to be on screen, fighting it out at the same time. In essence, making sure the MMO part of the MMO game actually works.When I hear that "CIG has not started work yet on the technology" it is simply stunning and tells me that the actual game release is still... at a minimum... multiple years away.I can't wait until they use the excuse that they have to go back and re-work stuff to make it compatible with their server mesh system and that's why it's delayed.
It's not what you said but how you said it. That's pretty much what civil means. Even this response is telling me a couple of times that I was wrong, I guess just in case I didn't get it the last few times you told me. I already know that arguments concerning SC tend to end up going around in circles which is pretty much why I don't.

If it's beta then why do they say Alpha?
How can it be in alpha (despite what they call it) when it is pretty much open access?
If it's beta then why do they say Alpha?
Their website is at the core of issues behind both of these threads. The problem isn't only with what is said on their website, but also what isn't said. There is a lot of important information not on their website, hidden in hour+ videos 3 times a week for the last 6 years.And if you didn't know something about this game prior to buying into it, then you're a "dummy". Because somebody at CIG made a statement in a 2013 video at the 1:23:45 mark, that may or may not be a real answer. And like, "you should have known better, hater". Or something like that.
NorseGod said:Show me video of Modules working in game. Or Hired NPCs running ship turrets. These are core mechanics that ships are designed around. Shouldn't they get the core mechanic working BEFORE selling ships that depend upon those mechanics?At least when I bought the Cutlass Black, my ships' gimmick was in the game, even though they took it out later.They sold $700 A2 Hercs. The gimmick for the A2 Herc is that it's a gunship the drops MOABs. Show me a demo of bombs working in game.You see, after 6-8 years, people don't want to be given links from other players, showing them flowcharts or interviews where every question is answered with "We want to have..." as the person is looking up at the ceiling.
Welcome to the unpredictable and bumpy road of crowdfunding and game development. Nobody forced you to join the ride but you did so anyway so might as well enjoy the ride because asking the "Are we there yet" certainly won't ease the pain or make it go faster lol
All time classic MY NEW FAVORITE POST! (Keep laying those bricks)

Sigh... again with the armchair dev'ing... giving dumb and simplistic analogy's with zero insight. That only reinforces that you have no clue about game development lol...Do yourself a favour and try to get the hold of the book Blood, Sweat & Pixels , thank me later.
It's not about "being" a Dev , it's about knowing about what you are talking so you don't make dumb ass comparisons. I'll try to put it simple.How many road-trips from NY to LA have been accomplished since 2012? How many games with the scope, scale and visual fidelity of Star Citizen/Squadron42 have been accomplished since 2012?
Oh and btw why isn't there a Star Wars mmorpg game with similar scope of Star Citizen after all these years?Oh boy you must love those Battlefronts lol

You're right...because they released.
