  • Star Citizen and refunds.

    So many Elite fanboys on this site, it explains why their forum is so amazingly busy....

    Meanwhile, the SC fanboys have this forum pushing updates to their phones 24/7, it would almost appear that they enjoy the drama more than the game. $190 million just so they can play forum pvp, what a bargain!

    Meanwhile,

  • Star Citizen - Squadron 42 not coming in 2018

    Well it didn't because they were 3 or 4 pages back and couldn't fit the screenshot, at the time Star Citizen had 7k viewers those were the ED and EvE viewers so nothing was fabricated. 
    LOL, just lol.

    If I took Elite's or EVE's viewer numbers at an uncommonly high peak and compared them to Star Citizen when it was at a low you would be moaning about intellectual dishonesty, haters, fake news and all the rest of it.
    When you do it and we discuss how it's portraying all games in a disingenuous manner you want to claim that nothing was fabricated.... the truth was fabricated.

    The reason those were included is not only because they are space games but because we usually have some envious ED and EvE fanboys with shitting on Star Citizen like some kind of inferiority complex lol
    By your own words then, you did this to get some sort of payback. You used selective propoganda while also moaning about people using false stories and clickbait headlines. You complain about bullshitting while participating in it to get revenge. Do you not see how that reduces the integrity of any position you might take?

    That's not how it works at all, not even slightly. you have the completely wrong idea on how this works.  
    Its not about passing packets of work around the world in a 24 hour period, its about meshing project lines, it doesn't matter if the other project section is 2000 miles away or the next floor down.
    Don't tell me I have the wrong idea, that's exactly what CIG were claiming was going to happen and it's for that reason I was calling it laughable...

    It was mentioned in a few of their videos that this was how they expected things to work. That people in the US would be working on something for their shift and then pass it along to the guys in the UK to pick up when they started their day, by doing it this way they claimed work would get completed much faster than if they were a single studio.
    There have been many bizarre reasonings for expansion and the need for constant funding over the years.

  • Crytek Filing Lawsuit Against CIG

    Erillion said:
    In one of the previous documents it was said that CIG did offer something to CryTek, but CryTek did not want it. Presumably they wanted more. After CryTek refused to accept it, it may be that CIG stopped offering it (because CryTek would not accept it anyway). And with the switch to Lumberyard there was no longer a reason to offer anything to CryTek.

    CIG agreed to send bug fixes. Not code changes. I assume CryTek expected to get all the code changes "for free"  (well, CryTek may have assumed that the (presumably ?) low (?) buyout price that CIG paid for the whole code was basically the price to get the code changes ... but it is not explicitly mentioned in the contract, so CIG did not feel obliged to send it ... which pissed of CryTek).  Sounds like the three brothers thought they outsmarted CIG ... and thought wrong.


    Have fun

    I remember reading that CIG had offered something but Crytek felt the way it was presented was completey useless to them and asked for it to be made available in a way that was useful, then they heard nothing again regarding code until after the suit started whereupon CIG responded rather petulantly about it.

    Bug fixes are code changes :) A bug exists because the code does something in a way the developer has not forseen, so to fix a bug requires a change to the code... hence a code change.

    Perhaps Crytek don't expect to get all the code changes for free, perhaps they just want what both sides agreed to, perhaps the 3 brothers weren't trying to outsmart CIG and are just pissed that they feel CIG reneged on the terms despite getting a license at a bargain price etc.

    I like how anyone who threatens CIG in any way is made out to be the villain, even in the absence of facts.
