    Glad to see they are adding a train system. Trains are way better than starships...

    I want a mmorpg where people have gone through misery, have gone through school stuff and actually have had sex even. -sagil

    They were suppose to take the initial funding and deliver a game that was promised on time.

    Not add a bunch of things no one asked for and delay the game indefinitely while asking for more money.

    You were supposed to read Kickstarter and following events to understand the scope changed approved massively by Old and new Backers. Squadron 42 (solo) have a an expected official beta date end of Q2 2020, in 12 months. In the meantime we can keep buying unfinished Triple-A from Publishers not problem :)

    Ah yes, the infamous scope vote.

    The actual vote was about leaving the tracker up on the website and how continuing to raise money would allow them to recruit more staff and therefore build a bigger game but most importantly build it faster.

    Chris had to increase the scope because even back then he had promised far more than he could deliver on the money he'd been given. His only option was to cut stuff out or build a bigger game by chasing more money and as we all know he chose the latter.

    Because asking rabid fans on your forum whether they want more is such a great way to get considered opinions.  It's the same bovine droppings as the last hundred+ times you've regurgitated the party line.

    Just like quoting a 'expected' release date for something from CIG is so relevant, when compared to their previous history of missing so many of their other claims.

    And CIG is the king of unfinished.  The most money spent in development of a game, and still years off, at best.   Because of CIG's 'King'.....

    If you are holding out for the perfect game, the only game you play will be the waiting one.

    I noticed you didn't actually include a quote or a screenshot.  Probably because what you said doesn't jive with actual reality on what that poll was actually about or what was actually stated during the actual events that transpired.

    What are the chances of Joeblow works for Chris Robber.

    Check his comments history. He literally only comments on Star Citizen to defend it in the most soulless manner.

    "tinted impact effects that allows particles to inherit the color of the surface they're being shot at"

    This one should drive the trolls bananas.

    Sure... No surprise that naysayer recreate history. +80% to say YES to new scope followed by +30M$ on average, every single years since then and 1.2 Million backers at mid-2019.

    Scope change have been totally rejected :)

    No need of screenshot. Vote result are on internet as well as funding since Nov. 2012. You can troll as you want about reality, that won't change facts :)

    You're the one trolling about reality and getting the facts wrong (or something far more insidious).  Which is why you aren't providing screenshots.

    Not even a naysayer Joe, I'm just speaking the facts and showing that whiteknights like yourself are full of bantha poodoo.

    But anyway don't take my word for it, let's see what Chris had to say in the vote in question (September 2013)

    Finally there is one very important element – the more funds we can raise in the pre-launch phase, the more we can invest in additional content (more ships, characters etc.) and perhaps more importantly we can apply greater number of resources to the various tasks to ensure we deliver the full functionality sooner rather than later.

    Q: What should we do with the crowdfunding counter after we reach our goal?
    1. 5% - Take the funds raised counter down after $23 million (mission achieved!)

    2. 7% - Have the funding counter display the amount towards the current stretch goal / feature, not the total amount once we reach $23M.

    3. 88% - Keep it up through development and continue to offer stretch goal rewards in addition to extra features and development milestones.

    (Total Votes: 21076 - 8% of Citizens, 12% of alpha backers)


    So, as you can see, the vote was for keeping the counter up and continuing to offer stretch goals so they could deliver full functionality sooner than later.

    When the facts turn you into a naysayer you know something is up.

    In all honesty though, why bother even arguing with the guy. I mean damn any article I've ever read about SC, this geezer is always all over em like fungus in dark, damp cave.

    I enjoy it every now and then, I like making them eat their words :)

    Imagine freely whoring yourself out to a corporation that cannot deliver 10% of the promised product after 7 years of work and over $250 million spent...

    Probably not free.  CiG was already caught red handed paying a fan site to publish only good things about them.  Odds are pretty good they're doing it for many other things too.
