It looks like Harebrained Schemes might have jumped the gun a little bit. They hit 2.5 million announcing PVP multiplayer unlocked. It now appears about $29,103 worth of backing dollars was pulled dropping the campaign under the PVP multiplayer stretch goal. So what happens if the campaign ends under 2.5? Will HBS honor PVP multiplayer?

Very easy not to install that piece of spyware, there is nothing out there that is worth it

half backed games counting on DLC (down load crap) Sellings.

You mean THIS type of spyware? I'm sure the millions who play multiplayer games through Steam appreciate Valve's efforts to combat cheating.

Q&A from Gabe Newell

1) Do we send your browsing history to Valve? No.
2) Do we care what porn sites you visit? Oh, dear god, no. My brain just melted.
3) Is Valve using its market success to go evil? I don't think so, but you have to make the call if we are trustworthy. We try really hard to earn and keep your trust.

One person asked, "So basically it wasn't pulling DNS for the entire machine but only looking for that one particular phone home call the cheat did? So merely looking at a cheat site won't get you banned?"
Gabe replied, "Correct"

The sad thing is this is not even Rocksteady's fault. I completely blame WB. This is going to make me think twice about buying a WB published title.

For good Jesus, stop!

No one gives a single fuck about Steam and their iron grip on the entire PC market..

Yay for Steam! Yay!..

Which do you prefer Steam or Origin? If nothing else perhaps it will convince EA to abandon their platform and release games on Steam.

I really wish the 2.5 million stretch goal would be modding support instead of PVP. I don't have anything again PVP multiplayer I just think mod support would add lots of shelf-life.

I think this is happening because of the recent DMCA ruling by the library of Congress. So Hi-Rez is embracing it.

Come on... quoting a list of logical fallacies at someone is "sharing what you've learned" only in the sense that you might have learned it because you were breaking those same fallacies two weeks ago. It just seems like a lack of self awareness.

It just found it amusing that it was you who pointed it out.

Yes, it is amusing. I'm not perfect. I make mistakes. I'm clearly a foolish person at times. I'm sure many of you might say all the time.

However, that's how people grow. I learned something and now I'm trying to apply what I learned going forward. I can't imagine you would fault me for doing that.

PS when I wrote "The point is, try and ground your perspective in facts and only those that can be shown to be factual. Everything else is irrelevant hearsay" that was mostly directed to myself as a reminder.

I'm saying that no matter your stance on the subject you seem content to bash others over the head with it when you only just recently learned how wrong you were.

I don't think I'm bashing anyone over the head. I'm simply sharing what I learned. What do you believe is an appropriate waiting period before I can share what I learned with others? 2 weeks? 2 months? 2 years?

That's a little preachy considering the way you were talking about CIG/Star Citizen before your dicksmarts epiphany.

Because I decided to research a few of Derek's claims and what I found led me to conclude there's no evidence for most of his assertions. I'm not saying he's wrong or right, I'm simply saying they couldn't be substantiated. Are you implying that I can't change my mind based on what my research shows?

Well, the easiest thing to do is ask him if the allegations are true at whatever the next open forum is. And if they are, who picked up the tab? The business or himself.

If he says it was him and it later transpires that the company (aka the backers) footed the bill for first class flights and a private chef, well...

You make very good points and I agree it would be easy to ask Chris such questions in an open forum. I would encourage Chris to answer such questions because they are important. However, I believe it would be very prudent to phrase such questions AS questions. It would be very inappropriate to phrase them as a "gotcha" or "statement of fact" questions. It would be unfair to taint an answer before one is given.

mellis wrote on Oct 29, 2015, 11:27:
Regardless of what you may think of Derek Smart personality and reporting style, Star Citizen has delivered very little in the way of substance and the rumours abound of financial mismanagement and inadequate leadership.

See. Again, you're reverting back to unsubstantiated allegations being treated as evidence. This is what is known as fallacious reasoning. You're...

- Affirming The Consequent (e.g. "All cats die; Socrates died; therefore Socrates was a cat.")
- Amazing Familiarity (e.g. "The first man on deck, seaman Don Smithers, yawned lazily and fingered his good luck charm, a dried seahorse. To no avail ! At noon, the Sea Ranger was found drifting aimlessly, with every man of its crew missing without a trace!")
- Appeal To Anonymous Authority (e.g. "Experts agree that ..", "scientists say .." or even "they say ..")
- Appeal To Coincidence (e.g. "The arguer has had a dozen traffic accidents in six months, yet he insists they weren't his fault.")
- Appeal To Widespread Belief (e.g. the claim, as evidence for an idea, that many people believe it, or used to believe it, or do it. Stephen Colbert called this "truthiness".)

And there are othere that I would encourage you to review.

The point is, try and ground your perspective in facts and only those that can be shown to be factual. Everything else is irrelevant hearsay.

The question, who controls the flagging of user reviews has nothing to do with THIS clear and present fact

I wrote, "Truth be told, I don't know if Valve stepped in." Hope that single answer covered most of your questions.

@Kajetan - Actually those are great questions. Truth be told, I don't know if Valve stepped in. So I would like to recant my comments. However, I do stand by my comment about WB being dishonest and lying. Thanks for correcting me.

Good. WB was being dishonest and lying.

Dishonest - flagging older reviews with "PRE-RELEASE REVIEW"
Lying - changing the release date

Really glad Valve jumped in and ended this nonsense.

Here's something you might find interesting; Chris Roberts was over in the UK last year for a number of months for work related to Star Citizen. He allegedly flew first class, hired a house in London *and* installed a private chef while he was there (even though food was provided).

Basically; Star Citizen money is going on letting Mr Roberts live the lifestyle of a Star.

Anyone knows Derek Smart, getting him to pose that titbit to Chris Roberts.

Concluding Star Citizen money is going on let Mr Roberts live the lifestyle of a Star is wrong because it's based on unsubstantiated allegations. No one has produced any evidence showing concrete proof this is happening. Derek has written tabloid-styled blogs about this in great depth without offering proof. It's one thing to raise this as a troubling development and leave it at that, but an entirely different thing to make the allegation and immediately conclude this is happening as if it's factual. Unfortunately, Derek's appears to drive his blogs in this direction a lot.

The only thing I know for a fact that is happening across the pond is CIG Manchester hasn't filed the mandatory annual report with the UK's Companies House (although they did file an extension until Sept-Oct 2016). This would be like a US company not filing their taxes with the IRS. It's a big deal legally.
