  • Curiosity ..

    One post. Three pages of "feed the troll".

    Way to go n00bs...

  • 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...

  • Star Citizen 3.0 - Refusing Refunds


    But I do find it hard to believe that they can later turn what they have into a smoothly running game.
    Well, its build on the Cry Engine. Crysis (2007) started running good on Ultra High settings with my GTX980 card (2014). It is jsut a matter of patience. :smiley:

    But, yeah, he is right. Actual base line performance is not likely to improve, but hardware advances might make up for it over time. In that regard the prolonged development is working in their favor.

  • Star Citizen 3.0 - Refusing Refunds

    Erillion said:

    If you get Star Citizen, play it for less than 2 hours and ask for a refund the next day (within CIG's 14 days timeframe) I am quite sure that you get a refund.

    According to the quote in the original post, the timeframe was more than 14 days (or 30 days).


    Have fun
    Do not compare to steam. What steam does is legal and sneaky. They sell early access which happens to also give you the final product, thus delivery is instant. CIG are selling items in the final release game, with beta access as a bonus. Ups. Not as sneaky as Steam, thus delivery can only be considered complete upon final game delivery. (EU)

    it is all in the wording.
