  • ATV - Austin Studio Monthly Update

    It honestly makes me wonder what happened between mid 2016 to end 2017. Did they just hit problem after problem and only just manage to get things functioning?

    It's a shame that mining (and the intital implementation only) has been pushed back another 3 months, it would have been nice to get that before 3.1 or with 3.1 because keeping people engaged for 6 months on what we have now is going to be a tall order, it's this sort of spacing that will end up burning a lot of people out.

    Have fun



    The quotes are perfect examples of how people make lame attempts at whitewashing virtually all criticism.
    Lame? is there something about the comments you find untrue? Please do tell.
    I have 10 mins to waste so I'll indulge you.

    1. Everyone knows the game is in alpha, no need for that to even be brought up unless you're trying to imply some people do not know. If the only sin was overzealous release dates this would be the best game on earth. However one only needs to look at the Gamescom/Citizencon demos and how they portray the game which always performs far better than the experience of those currently playing it. They reposted evocati screenshots of 60fps servers with 30+ people in one place, is that really the reality?

    2. Does anyone expect a bug free game? Who says this, where do they say it?

    3. And 3.0 was delayed for 1 year so they could get everything in place yet it still turns out to be extremely buggy. CR regularly likes to say that they would prefer to hold back a release so that they can deliver it with the polish he knows the backers expect, how often does that actually happen?

    4. No shit sherlock, perhaps CIG and the more fanatical people should also be careful of claiming how amazing the next patch will be instead of trying to blame those that listened to them.

    It's a lame puff piece catering to a bunch of yes men.

    Excellent selection of quotes Erilion and I approve of the message you are trying to put accross, one couldn't make this stuff up if one tried.

  • Star Citizen, I am disappointed.

    I disagree, look at the slides from Gamescom 2016 of what 3.0 would contain, look at all the talk in the ATV shows about how amazing it was all going to be, look at all the fans hyping each other up about the brilliance of the upcoming 3.0 patch. The reality is a severely broken, poorly performing, bodge up of a game which has moments of brilliance albeit inconsequential ones.

    It's not about slamming an alpha, it's about critiquing 5 years (and over $150 million worth) of development.

    An article by one of the guys at Eurogamer. Yes it's a critical article but the majority of it is valid criticism.
