You mean Chris "I absolve myself of that" Roberts?NorseGod said:This isn't for the cult to answer or defend. This is all Chris Roberts. What does he have to say?Robsolf said:Linif said:
If this were 2-3 years in, I'd have alot more sympathy for its defenders. 3-4 years, even. But 6+ years and barely in Alpha is limbo. This IS NOT how you make games. This is not even how you make software.
He loves podcasts and videos. Are there any videos of him being held accountable for this?
More importantly, will he respond with slogans, excuses, or solutions?

It's rare a company will stick to it's guns when there's an obvious problem with pricing and hardly anyone is buying ingame ships. As of now most ships aren't finished and there are little to no content in place for a lot of the specialty ships. Perhaps payouts for missions will be adjusted.
I have to smile when I see people saying, well then this isn't the game for you, because one, there is no launched game yet, and two telling people the game isn't for them during alpha when the game isn't finished is questionable to say the least. That's making a big assumption that what's being planned will actually be in the game exactly as written. I'm sure the early backers can tell you it ain't so.
I feel this way about any game that's still in alpha or early beta as a game can change a lot before launch and a lot of games are still being completed for years afterwards.
Yes there's a lot of that. It's a big reason why the community is viewed as rather toxic.Octagon7711 said:Why you see my observations as arguments I will never know. You said my observations were wrong. How did I argue with you about that? Why pick fights with me?
One thing I've noticed is that the people who are against SC tend to be more civil then those who are for it. Perhaps it says something about the type of people the game is attracting.
