    Edit: Also, I would like to say that CR is bound to feel a large amount of pressure and is beholden to his backers to some degree. If the base ever turned on him it probably would have been all over. I am sure 3.0 being rolled out is a massive relief to all at CIG. 
    I do not get you guys. You spend years explaining you are ready to wait for whatever time it takes to make that BDSSE. When someone like me then points that fact out, then we are wrong too...

    * Sigh *

    PS. Hi, Max, good to have you back.
    But that's only because majority of backers are actually happy with what they are seeing, the progress and the direction. You think there are no limits to majority support of backers? 


    and im not max! i am ori!  
    At this point, no. I really do not think that they can loose support from the already over invested fan base. Sunken cost, etc.. You know the argument.

    In other news: For short while I thought that you guys trying to deny the lack of management skill around SC would be the biggest laugh of the day. Then I jumped on Mr. Smarts Twitter stream. Oh. My. God. The guy is having a total melt down. He has made like 20 posts today trying to spin actual progress into a disaster story. Desperation is setting in. Good times.

    As for mismanagement, I don't think I have worked in a single job where the underlings didn't complain about mismanagement! 

    That is a bit of a cheap get out of jail card.

    When you 5 years down the road still have to deliver the functionality you estimated to 1½ years, then yeah, you have a management problem.

    But honestly I do not really see it as a problem anymore. They have a devoted following that are ready to pay for that lost time and even sees it a project strength. When that is the situation, why hell should you really worry about optimizing the process? It is a dream position to be in. You can squander all the cash away doing R&D and research and noone holding you accountable. No need for management then.

    Shit, who would not want to work like that? All the time in the world and no accountability. I hope Roberts is counting his blessings each night. He is in a pretty unique situation in the history of gaming.

    But that does not change the fact that the guy has fuck all management skill.

    Congratulations to the SC fans.

    Nice to see your patience being rewarded.

    That kind of patience deserves rewarding.  :)

    But Star Citizen is delivering features way ahead of other space games. It already has some of the most difficult stuff to pull in a space game like meaningful Space Legs, EVA, Multicrew all seamless integrated thanks to dozens of ship's already built inside and out with dynamic components, Highly detailed Space Stations you can walk on and mingle, planets coming next...

    Plenty of games released years and years ago have tried and failed to pull that off while Star Citizen already has it while still in Alpha. 
    Bleh. StarMade have them beat by years. Sure no shiny gfx, but the gameplay is there. Actually they have way more SC features up and running than SC have.

    Just saying.
    Not really a "simulation" or a "living breathing universe" makes it another Space themed Lego building game alike.
    We were talking actual delivered gameplay. SC currently neither sports that kind of gameplay. 

    You moved the goal posts mate. Not accepted.
