They should of done this ages ago back when accounts were getting hacked left and right and people were buying gold off Chinese gold farmers like crazy. Back when Burning Crusades was the thing. I quit pretty much after Cata so not sure if it got any worse than it was during BC. Damn gold spammers were everywhere.

Two things I don't like mentioned here. No respawn of mobs (if its a slow respawn like skyrim thats fine). I also don't like that there is no level scaling. I don't want mobs that scale down but when im level 35 I don't want to be 1 shoting level 20 skeleton warriors. I like to beat things through skill and gear not a level gap.

Seriously takes most of them 2+ hours to respond to a break in but do 10 mph over the speed limit and they are on your ass.

If you call your speculation truth then so be it. If SC ends up charging a sub then yeah ill be mad.Im not ready to jump on the hater wagon yet. I see a steady flow of information and progress reports so why should I?

We're haters because you guys drank the Kool-Aid? Heh, yeah, ok. What's the name of your space station? Jonestown?

I have no problems with haters, just you Cutter. You and your made up speculative bullshit. Have I called out any other haters on this thread? Nope.

It wouldn't be too hard, just have to come up with a hocus pocu storyline and they are good to go to throw in all the variables needed.
Seems like almost an easy target for a big company like EA.

Same goes for creating a game like Skyrim (minus not needing a decent story).
It really surprises me that no AAA dev/pub have made a similar game. A first-person, action-oriented Fatasy RPG sandbox with good combat would KILL on the market, just like Skyrim has

I think the Witcher 3 is supposed to be something like this from what I've heard. I know im looking forward to it.

All I see is a lot of time and money being wasted on everything that isn't the space game that was promised. Besides everything being monetized out the ass what do you think Roberts is going to charge for a monthly fee for MP if and when it arrives? Standard $15 a month? Or push it to $20 or $30? Probably tiered with "premium" P2W monthly packages I suspect.

Cutter you get so mad over shit you make up and speculate on. Read the faq. It says no sub. Now if they go back on their word and charge then get pissed ( I will ). But give it a fuckn rest all ready. You pull so much shit out of a hat. I hear you that you want you space game but some people want something a bit deeper than just flying around in space shooting alien X Y Z.

This is rich, sounds like that BattleStar Galactica online game with the same lame offering. Bare bones space flight sim, with minimal content and an empty hangar to 'walk' around in.

PT Barnum was right.

Bare bones? You do realize that half of the bitching and moaning going on about this game is that they are trying to put to much into at the start? (Which is a valid point but doesn't bother me personally) I think this is just the arena (flight) module you can play. Which doesn't have anything in it but flying around and shooting at things

News Comments > Star Citizen is Huge

I remember when people shit their britches when games were on 4 floppy disk. What do you have like 30 ships (guessing) in High res, in addition to their interiors. Animations for each ship and their movable parts graphics and effects for a bunch of weapons, explore able stations and who knows what else.

I just hope that the patches can install while you play or patch days are going to be a bitch.

Actually they don't. It states both on Kickstarter and the RSI Tos that the game is subject to change and may be delayed. Kickstarter clearly states in the kickstarter faq (quote followsthis comment its a long read), It also states in RSI's TOS link and quote follows comment.

You can bitch and moan or hell even talk out your ass like Cutter or you can accept its pretty much like every other game out there in development thats in Pre Alpha. So its going to get delayed and yes content is going to change.

Its clearly stated on the Kickstarter faq and the RSI TOS what to
expect.

Kickstarter FAQ excerpt followed by RSI TOS excerpt:

What should creators do if they're having problems completing their project?

If problems come up, creators are expected to post a project update explaining the situation. Sharing the story, speed bumps and all, is crucial. Most backers support projects because they want to see something happen and they'd like to be a part of it. Creators who are honest and transparent will usually find backers to be understanding.

It's not uncommon for things to take longer than expected. Sometimes the execution of the project proves more difficult than the creator had anticipated. If a creator is making a good faith effort to complete their project and is transparent about it, backers should do their best to be patient and understanding while demanding continued accountability from the creator.

If the problems are severe enough that the creator can't fulfill their project, creators need to find a resolution. Steps should include offering refunds, detailing exactly how funds were used, and other actions to satisfy backers. For more information, see Section 4 of our Terms of Use.

For projects that launched before October 19, 2014, please see our previous Terms of Use.

In addition on RSI website in the terms of service
( https://robertsspaceindustries.com/tos )

RSI agrees to use its good faith business efforts to deliver to you the pledge items and the Game on or before the estimated delivery date communicated to you on the Website. However, you acknowledge and agree that delivery as of such date is not a firm promise and may be extended by RSI since unforeseen events may extend the development and/or production time. Accordingly, you agree that any unearned portion of your Pledge shall not be refundable until and unless RSI has failed to deliver the relevant pledge items and/or the Game to you within eighteen (18) months after the estimated delivery date.

Why wouldn't you have first person in space? The whole objective of going to space is finding planets, mining asteroids etc. I don't think astronauts just sit in their seat and fly around, they do things like space walks etc.. So yeah I guess you can call it filler but how can you say that being able to board a persons ship and take it over in a fire fight is a bad thing? Or land on a planet get in your scout car and explore?

Im buying this compared to CrapXXL and Simcity this looks much better. Paradox usually does great with things you can do in a game but usually the games are pretty buggy for awhile. Least that's been my experience with them

Sims 3 sold 1.4 million copies in the first week, Sims 4 on the other hand took over 4 months to clear that. Granted 1.4 million isn't bad for most games in 4 months but that's EA for you.

Also great if you don't want your kids on your PC clicking on monkeys to win free Iphones. Never know when one of them might stumble onto your porn.
