    How does this compare to Elite dangerous? i have around 60 hrs in ED and enjoy it alot but heard SC is a bit more fleshed out but all these comments make me wonder prob just best to see if it ever gets a real release date.

    Those comments about a fleshed out SC are based on a hypothetical imaginary SC that one day was completed with all its promises fulfilled.

    What's currently in SC right now is fetching and delivering boxes, a walking/driving simulator in space, some terrible flight combat gameplay, empty moons, bugs (of the programming variety), and... not much else.

    To not even bother with hearing any further arguments from both sides means she must be really set in her decision.  Which I imagine also probably means either "CiG are complete idiots" or "Crytek are complete idiots".
    It would be Crytek is complete idiots if the case gets dismissed, but neither party is an idiot if the case isn't dismissed. Not dismissing just means there's enough case that it needs the court procedure instead of the much shorter motion to dismiss procedure.

    Yea, I mixed up CiG's beliefs (not that I actually know those beliefs) with the beliefs of various Star Citizen defenders (not necessarily from this forum, specifically) who said that CiG's motion to dismiss was a "slam dunk" for CiG.  Whether or not CiG actually believes their motion to dismiss is a shoe-in is unknown (heck, like I said several times earlier, at this point considering how often CiG's last reply stated "We can prove it if it goes to court!", I think their legal firm FFKS at the very least has given up on the motion to dismiss, so the judge denying it would basically be what they already know)
  • Crytek Filing Lawsuit Against CIG


    (IN CHAMBERS) ORDER by Judge Dolly M. Gee: The Court finds that Defendant's Motion to Dismiss the First Amended Complaint or Claims for Relief Therein or, in the Alternative, for a More Definite Statement and to Strike Certain Portions of the First Amended Complaint (FRCP 12(B)(6), 12(E) & 12(f))19 presently scheduled for hearing on February 9, 2018, is appropriate for decision without oral argument. Fed. R. Civ. P. 78(b); C.D. L.R. 7-15. Accordingly, the motion is taken UNDER SUBMISSION and the hearing is vacated. IT IS SO ORDERED. THERE IS NO PDF DOCUMENT ASSOCIATED WITH THIS ENTRY. (kti) TEXT ONLY ENTRY

    Far as I can tell and from reading and asking around, this is basically the judge saying she has all she needs to decide on the MTD and thus doesn't need to hold a hearing.  IE, "I've heard enough already. I'm going to make my decision." (as further proof of this, there allegedly isn't a hearing scheduled for tomorrow anymore from what others are saying on various reddits and forums)

    To not even bother with hearing any further arguments from both sides means she must be really set in her decision.  Which I imagine also probably means either "CiG are complete idiots" or "Crytek are complete idiots".

    Some people say this means the decision has a 90 day deadline while others say it's still supposed to come tomorrow, hearing or not. I'm fuzzy on the legal rules around that. Hopefully the latter but I wouldn't put it past the legal system to take so friggin' long.

    ridiculous....smart devs will never share the view that PvP and loss are a bad thing, and neither will the majority of gamers...since most ALL of the top played games have PvP....

    ya'll just huddle here together trying to reinforce each other in your little corner making it seem like theme park MMOs, with no loss or consequences, were the glory days....they sucked and most of us are glad they are dying. When will you people understand that getting everything you want gets boring in like 2 seconds? Seriously, all you get with no PvP or item loss is a bored player base crying for content the second they gobble it up, and a shitty economy where crafting is worthless..yay...

    It's certainly done wonders for this game!
  • Curiosity ..

    Yep, in part because I'm an accountant so I get particularly personal about this sort of thing, I've brought it up before quite a few times.  They get all the benefits of secrecy with their financials despite relying on outside funding like publically traded or not-for-profit companies do just because crowdfunding is so new that they can and are just loopholing around the whole thing on technicalities.  And yet most backers don't care.

    But that's fine.  I'm sure soon enough they'll all learn why they should have cared, the hard way.
