Sort of reminds me of the escaped Mexican drug lord Guzman, who just tweeted a threat to Donald Trump.

I sent CIG a very carefully crafted message containing plenty of video and written proof showing most (like 95%) of my $930 was made under false claims made by Chris himself. I can't imagine CIG denying such a claim; that would be completely unethical.

If serious, tell us how that works out for ya.

It's serious. I have all my snippets and notes organized in Evernote. This is how I was able to find the videos and whatnot. I also archived the videos just in case CIG goes to the authors and ask them to take them down. I have those videos so there's undeniable proof. I'm not going to hate on CIG anymore, I just want my money back.

So is CIG going to refund everyone who wants it now? That would be great. I guess if they won't, complaints might get it done.

There should be special cases made where if a Backer does provide proof that they backed under false pretensions that they should receive a refund. If someone sends an email to CIG that reads like, "Hey poopy heads, I want money back!!!1!" obviously this means nothing. I sent CIG a very carefully crafted message containing plenty of video and written proof showing most (like 95%) of my $930 was made under false claims made by Chris himself. I can't imagine CIG denying such a claim; that would be completely unethical.

Really glad game ratings on Steam is based on user feedback and not on MetaCritic. This Etherium has a Rating of "Mixed" based on 174 reviews. Most Steam reviews tend to be funny but most of the reviews I've read appear helpful and informative.

Here's a pretty decent review

Hopefully all of this will help you decide.

This is how the moderators of Star Citizen Reddit responded.

"you have been banned from posting to /r/starcitizen.
you can contact the moderators regarding your ban by replying to this message. warning: using other accounts to circumvent a subreddit ban is considered a violation of reddit's site rules and can result in being banned from reddit entirely."

Pretty much what I thought. There will be absolutely no dissent in the Star Citizen new universe order. This is the mark of a group of people who literally live a bubble of lies and cannot handle opposing viewpoints. I'm not done with them.

harlock, the bible also states "No deceitful person will dwell in my house, And no liar will stand in my presence." (Psalms 101:7) and Chris has been fairly deceitful and a liar.

But I don't understand how your wall of text has anything to do with Star Citizen or crowdfunding. Actually I don't want to know. Please don't bother defining it...

I would like to present the perfect video that sums up why many of us backed in the first place.

"the game on the low side was going to be about 14 million dollars to make and the high side, which is where we are at now, is going to be about 20 million"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vzlda0-XoY&t=490

We were gullible for believing Chris. Many of us just woke up sooner.

Also worth mentioning that nobody outside the US cares about 9/11 anymore.

That's a heartless thing to say.

4 years. It took them a year to create the prototype demo that they showed at GDC and to angel investors, ventures and finally to crowdfunders on KickStarter. They started this project in 2011, officially announced it in 2012. What do we have 4 years later: Arena Commander, ships, a hangar and a racing track. You might call that progress. I call it a failure.
Please. The prototype was made by Chris Roberts and a few volunteers from Crytek. CIG didn't exist as a studio. You can't equate that time to the time spent since the Kickstarter. It's taken about 18 months to fully staff the studios while laying out the groundwork. Obviously progress is slower than people would like and the original goals were wildly unrealistic but what matters is the final product.

That's not the point of my comment. Read it again... slowly.

To be fair, the cash shop has always been part of the plan since day no. 1.

How many crowdfunded games have a cash shop before there's a game? o _ o

Chris is the ideas guy. Ideas guys are by definition overly optimistic. If he was a realist, he would have decided it couldn't be done and never launched this in the first place. You need ideas guys, but you also need someone of equal power to rein them in, plan properly, help define scope, etc. Not sure there's anyone over at RSI that can do that.

They did. Alex Mayberry. He left a few days ago. Probably for all the reasons people are thinking about: no stable model, to large in scope, a Studio head hell belt on delivering something cannot be done in the next 2 years, etc. etc...

Looks like SC released a video teaser update regarding the FPS portion. And the write up.

Chris promised a space sim; not a FPS. A FPS wasn't necessary in his previous games because the game took place mostly in space in a ship. The FPS bullshit was something that was bolted on as the 20 MILLION stretch goal. Star Citizen turned into space with guns... That's not what he promised to deliver during his KickStarter pitch video.
