I can see the Star Citizen zombies are out in force today. Zombie

Isn't it time for you people to retire back to the RSI forums? If you're exposed to too much sunlight you might burn.

The people who back Chris no matter what he says are completely irrelevant. It's to those of us who backed AND don't believe him anymore that Chris has to prove himself. We're way past words now. Words mean nothing.

@loomy - Thank you for sharing your opinions, but I respectfully disagree with them. There is a clear distinction between making a mistake and being deceived. I have already posted proof online showing deception.

@commonperson - You sure do have a lot of words but all you did in your posts is concentrate on the money question. So I put the question to YOU "When did you back"? I already know for how much.

commonperson wrote on Jul 20, 2015, 17:25:
How much a person invested should not be relevant to the conversation and is in fact entirly irrelevant. If some one gave 5 dollars or 5000 dollars they are invested in the game and deserve a voice. That voice is no greater or lesser than anyone else's.

Any backer who reaches $1,000 automatically gets placed into what CIG calls their "Concierge service" which provides the backer with a higher level of customer server. Those backers who choose to subscribe monthly are giving lots of extras including "having a voice" in a chance to have their questions answered on the weekly videos. This project is very much setup to provide benefits and perks to those who have backed for way more than the normal. That's just the way things are. That's the way the real world works.

Putting that all aside the MONEY question isn't as important to me as the WHEN question.

they have made some improvements to the attack/stagger mechanics from what I can recall last patch, namely that enemies actually react now when you hit them instead of just finishing whatever their last action was. That also works against you as well.

Geralt is level 36 wearing max Bear school armor, crossbow and blades. There's really nothing in the game he can't kill in 1-2 hits; except for maybe the occasional gryphon or elemental.

I'm really hoping the 2 expansions coming soon will increase the level curve. Really looking forward to visiting Toussaint.

I lead back to my earlier comment: "I have absolutely no ill-will against the community, but at times they make me sigh." Here's two examples:

From Kxmode's post:

Proof that these guys only care about your money.
He asked for a refund a year after he bought it? That guy and anyone who agrees with him is incompetent.

I would be interested in discussing a law that makes crowdfunding donations/purchases refundable up until the date that the final product is released. I'm all for human rights. But such a law does not exist.

I picture this guy wearing rags to the local walmart to return unopened coca-cola which hasn't expired yet. Dear sirs: I need that money back. I haven't properly thought out my decision to invest in coca-cola

Oh for goodness sake put your e-pee away! I agree they have been doing a poor job communicating but you going on about how you gave almost 1000 dollars (multiple times now) just comes across as either braging or sour grapes. Your further complaints about how there needs to be changes to how crowd sourcing works highlights the latter.

Comments like these are the reason I LEFT the RSI forums.

No worries. Btw, I don't have anything against you personally. I know I can be a bit blunt and/or rude at times, so I apologise if I have offended you or anyone else here (except Derek Smart - I'm happy to offend him).

No offense taken. Since CIG refuses to give me a refund I'm still officially a backer. I understand why backers are still passionate about the game. I have absolutely no ill-will against the community, but at times they make me sigh.

I pledged $37 during the original Kickstarter, which finished 11/2012 (Original Backer status). I was also one of the first to register on the RSI website, which makes me a Golden Ticket holder. When Arena Commander was released I enjoyed it and pledged more. At the moment my total pledge stands at over $500, though that includes multiple copies of the game as gifts for family members and friends, merchandise and a CitizenCon ticket.

As someone who backed the game when it was originally pitched I'm very happy with the progress. I was hoping for a spiritual successor to Starlancer and Star Citizen is shaping up to be that and more.

Thank you. It's puts context on who you are as a backer.

And you obviously don't know a thing about games. Star Marine is a FPS (S as in Shooter, call of duty BS) it has nothing to do with the original game. First person trading, sure walking around your ship yes, but shooter NO! Stop trying to add extra words in there that don't exist.
Just effin finally read the Kickstarter page and the details of the stretch goals on the RSI website. 3.5 million => Boarding in First Person style with action and shooting.

Stretch goals on RSI's website are irrelevant to the original goals stated on the KickStarter page. There's no mention of ship boarding as a feature on the KickStarter page. It was an out of scope item ADDED to Star Citizen AFTER the Kickstarter funding had been reached in order keep reaching "new stretch goals". In other words A 3.5 million stretch goal was just as bad as the 16 million stretch goal, 20 million stretch goal, 28 million stretch goal, 36 million stretch goal, 43 million stretch goal, 57 million stretch goal... etc etc. NONE of these should even exist. All we want was a Wing Commander / Privateer / Freelancer game with modern graphics. Chris wasn't content with delivering this, but he didn't tell his vision truthfully.

You're funny. You already answered your own question. I put it in bold and underlined it for you.

the FP in FPS stands for First Person, in case you forgot.

And you obviously don't know a thing about games. Star Marine is a FPS (S as in Shooter, call of duty BS) it has nothing to do with the original game. First person trading, sure walking around your ship yes, but shooter NO! Stop trying to add extra words in there that don't exist.

This! In the original Kickstarter pitch video Chris NEVER once mentioned or even hinted at ANY kind of first person combat. It was ALWAYS going to be space combat. FPS only became a thing as the 20 million stretch perk. It wasn't even part of the pitched game. I should have started requesting my refund back when the 20 million stretch goal was revealed.

I can see the Star Citizen fanboys are out in full force. A couple of things you need to understand

1. This is not the RSI forums. We do not all drink the SC Kool-Aid here so you WILL get dissenting / opposing view points.

2. I have lots of information, video interviews, and other things all sorted and organized showing EXACTLY what Chris said early in the campaign and after the KS campaign ended. When I write something about Chris it is the truth taken from Chris' mouth.

3. Many of you have not backed for close to $1,000 (I have). You do not get to tell me what I SHOULD feel. I do not share your joy for Star Citizen and nothing you say will change my mind.

4. I have tried to get a full refund only to be fed absolute bullshit on CIG's part. Their reasons stand on shaky ground at best. http://pastebin.com/mSM29KZs The sooner the FTC moves in an takes action the better it will be for all crowdfunding investors; including all you SC fans. This is akin to going to the dentist to get a root canal. It may be painful; it may be uncomfortable... but it is absolutely necessary.
