    This game is a show case of how in games, less is more. Do not try to be everything to everyone, chose your angle and do that really well.

    I have not had this much fun running around and killing baddies since Dying Light.

    My question would be what's going on in with crypto currencies to influence this. cant blame people who think they might see an opportunity and taking a risk if that's. All this is news to me. First post I saw on this. Seems like somethign to waste a bit of time on reading about. 
    The problem right now is that Bitcoins are worth a lot more than they actually cost to create*, if you have a large enough setup to weigh out the randomness. 

    * The "cost" of a Bit coin is the equal to the power consumption plus hardware write off. And for the large scale miners that cost is a lot lower than what stupid people are prepared to pay for them. See Bitcoins is not really a currency, it is a raw material, and that in the end will doom it a s a currency. There is a reason we do not pay with gold silver or some other rare material. Bitcoins is really people repeating ancient mistakes all over again.
  • Nearly $35M Raised in 2017 Alone. Funding Now Eclipses $175M - Star Citizen - MMORPG.com

     but SC has 175,000,000 $$ does this feel like there milking it a bit ?
    The is no "a bit" about it.

    Thing is that it seems that CR keeps setting the ambitions above what they currently have money for. Give him more, and the ambitions raise.

    So as long as he gets cash he will keep on expanding the scope. An you know what? The founders love that. They see how they are getting more and more.

    Personally though, I think the thing that should worry them is: If CR is that bad at estimating progress, how can you trust that his vision can actually fit within what has been raised? The usual answer is that that is no problem, he will surely raise more money. Yeah. Sure he will. And that money will lead to CR expanding the scope. It is a spiral slowly sending the project to it's doom, with everybody on board smiling.
  • Crytek Filing Lawsuit Against CIG

    Perfect timing by CryTech. Waited long enough to maximize sales and then strikes while there is still money to get.

    Have to give them credit: Striking for optimal damage/profit ratio.

    Someone must really have pissed them off...

    In EVE we had projects where several dedicated people were working 18 hours a day to achieve a certain objective. For those that know EVE ... I was ASCN ...  first player outpost ... first Titan. Proud hobbit 'til this day  ;-)  Compared to that a craftable Star Citizen capital ship is small fry.
    Explains a lot about our relationship.

    I was there when we blew it up.

    I had fun!  :p
