  • Sandi Gardiner Stops Social Media Over Targeted Harrassment

    I don't think it's because she is a female... some people have a beef with Star Citizen overall and she seems to be easiest target to go against. Everything she does or says will be used against her, both Star Citizen related up to her personal life. We can't talk of harassment of her without mentioning Derek Smart, allow me to paste a resume made of what goes from him alone against Sandi Gardiner....

    You be the judge, isn't this harassment?

    500+ mentions of her on twtitter

    That's just Twitter.

    Why all the attacks? He says

    • Because he was banned.
    • He heard stuff about the way she treats employees (no proof given)
    • He doesn't think she's qualified.

    Are this perfectly reasonable reasons to post pictures of their children, their resumes, their marital status, videos, e-mails, scantily clad pictures, their childrens' names,etc?

  • EA Ranks as the Fifth Most Hated Company in America - MMORPG.com News

    To me this a utterly ridiculous thing, people with messed up priorities driving all their attention to petty situations, there are far worse companies that cause realm harm in our society that deserve to be brought up to light and shamed for it, but they get away without much bad publicity because the internet is too busy talking about how EA is the devil. hm

    Quite the popularity contest.

  • So what happened to PG planets and landing on them?

    Having the tech and demo it is not the same as "it's done and ready to be released". 

    It's called development, as they show time to time the how it keeps progressing and improving from what we seen before:

    (from this week's update on PG progress)

    The answer to what happened to PG Planets is quite obvious, under development. The number of planets/moons is irrelevant, if there's blockers and stuff to do before it's on a release-able, it won't happen until it is.

    On its progress, several things that changed since last year PG Demos:
    • Orbital mechanics are now a thing, been a question for a while that depended on if tech-wise allowed it to happen, and so it happens.
    • Planets rotate, from the originally shown static versions to have them rotating to generate by itself the day/night cycles.
    • Cloud simulation (and eventually weather), another of the sides of PG gaining traction since the demos.
    • And obviously, the work being done on the stuff that will be generated within those planets (mostly outposts of several types within the first release it seems)

    I think following the topic of PG within the development you'll see the clear path it's taking and how it is improving on literally every front, showing focus attm on content creation/generation on the planets/moons.
  • PSA: The $45,000 refund was fake - updated


    Developers say a Star Citizen guild did not get $45,000 refund. 
    "Cloud Imperium spokesperson Dave Swofford tells Ars that "a lot of the information was fabricated" in the Reddit post discussed the below. Swofford says the account in question was issued an individual refund of $330, not the $45,000 claimed in posted screenshots and videos which Swofford says do not reflect actual complaints requests logged by the company. What's more, Swofford says the refund was handled "in a timely fashion" with "no extended debate over whether we should."
    edit. And this article on PC Gamer:
    The Reddit post contains a number of screenshots of correspondence between the poster and CIG's customer service department detailing the refund process, however: "The screenshots do not represent the actual communications which were shared to and from our support department," the CIG representative wrote. "So no…there’s nothing to it at all. There is no story."

    ...a refund was issued recently to one customer, but in the amount of $330. I asked if it appeared this was the same customer, and if this customer had perhaps doctored the correspondence to make it appear as if the amount refunded was $45,000. The response I got was: "Yes to the first. Yes to the second…as best as we can tell."
    edit. Right after CIG's reaction and the media intent to contact who claimed the refund, the poster deleted account.

    And this is a great example of how much crap made to look legitimate is fabricated here, now here it is CIG officially reacts and states that the details of that refund were faked. This also tells about the refunds sub credibility when the admins claimed they personally verified the legitimacy of that refund...

  • Mom Claims Teen is a 'Scapegoat' When Sued by Epic Games for Cheating - Fortnite - MMORPG.com

    It's not a scapegoat, it's a PR thing.

    They have to publicly crucify someone to send a message, to the general public "Look what we do to cheaters.", to the other "Look what we will do to you.".

  • Erin Roberts Interview Uncut

    Well the drama sucked me in so I HAD to watch OP's video.

    Only two (2) solutions here:

    1: MaxBacon has never watched British television or has never heard someones "bad" accent from GB.

    2: He is totally white-knighting here.

    Dude obviously does not have a "speech impediment" :D

    Does he have a hard to understand regional accent? Yep. Does he sometimes have problems getting his thoughts out properly? Yep. Does it get worse when he starts grasping for answers of questions he either can't answer honestly or just does not know? Quite obviously.

    Honestly Max this is beyond the pale for you. Someday you have to just face it that CIG is not ran by the best or brightest in the industry.  Doesn't mean that a game will never come out. Just that the Brothers Roberts are kinda incompetent.

    You don't have to have any speech impediment to have a type of speech that results on you butchering phrases and so on beyond simply an accent. On the case of Erin my opinion is that he speaks before he gathers his thoughts and easily loses it especially when asked more complex questions, to me is not lack of knowledge because that shows to also happen when he clearly knows the answer (as stating something he had just said again) yet fails to deliver it anyway, ends up babbling; so in my opinion that gets worse through the footage I've seen of him on both scenarios, not only the one you mention.

    The last bit of your post is useless hyperbole, is not relevant to this, neither would I stand it is and they stand without error. To the point, I stand my opinion, you stand yours, and we can all move on, if not, then this thread will get to 100 pages of this.
  • Erin Roberts Interview Uncut

    If you don't care what I or others think why do you spend so much time trying to tell people they're wrong and/or defending your opinion?

    That makes zero sense.
    I already stated and explained my opinion of it, you are free to disagree. You have your opinion, I disagree and think you are wrong.

    If you want to go any further and keep engaging me in a loop just to get this thread with 100 pages, why not?
