As SC is supposed to be an online game with a persistent online universe that could be a major problem but so far they've proved themselves to be able to adapt to player feedback and with a budget this large they can afford to bring in huge updates and change the things that don't work for players.
No it wasn't suppose to be an online game, here is their Kickstarter page that I backed:
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cig/star-citizen?ref=nav_search
The emphasis is:
  • Single Player Offline or Online(Drop in / Drop out co-op play)

  • Squadron 42 - A Wing Commander style single player mode, playable OFFLINE if you want
  • From their FAQ:
    Star Citizen will take the best of all possible worlds, ranging from a permanent, persistent world similar to those found in MMOs to an offline, single player campaign like those found in the Wing Commander series. The game will include the option for private servers, like Freelancer, and will offer plenty of opportunities for players who are interested in modding the content. Unlike many games, none of these aspects is an afterthought: they all combine to form the core of the Star Citizen experience.
    So far they aren't delivering anything in regards to the single player game. The trading, the traveling to worlds, the exploration, the game economy. All we have is a simple multiplayer dog fight sim, single player bot arena match and some racing thing. That is pretty unacceptable to me given 2 years. While I understand that these things take time, there hasn't been even a hint at the single player portion of the game. All we get is "Here is a new ship you can buy with real money so we can get another million this week." If you look at the kickstarter page you can see they were estimating a November 2014 release date. For what they have delivered so far that was a grossly negligent estimate. I mean if they estimated to ship by next month, I would have expected them to at the very least have all the modules in Alpha by now and expect some delays. But they don't even have an alpha part of the single player, the trading, or even the traveling to other worlds part.

    Spot on. That's why the game has become 'Let's see how long we can milk this.' Until the well runs dry I wouldn't expect much actual product to arrive. And even then I'll bet dollars to donuts the focus will be on the MMO part of the game - and heavily monetized at that - with SQ42 arriving very late and very short.

    Was this clause bold and seperate or buried in the boilerplate? Let's face it most people don't bother looking at the EULA or skim the privacy section at best. Not much of an experiment if it's the latter.

    Yeah, even though Civ is my most played game evar Ima wait and see on this. With Civ 5 it took 3 major expansions and numerous patches to get it to where it should have been to begin with. If this is more of the same I'll hold off for a year or two.

    Just get a basic functional game out there and the tools you need to add-on/in to it. Then start churning out your promised addons and future DLC. It's not rocket surgery!

    I'm tending to agree with the perspective now it's more about how long he can milk this than delivering something 'complete'.

    Threaten someone that specifically, and expect to go to jail. Am I missing something here? Not sure the first amendment would apply if this were in the USA.

    I don't see where he broke the law from the example they gave. A threat is personal. 'You better watch it or I'm going to kill you' vs. 'You better watch it or someone will kill you' is different in the eyes of the law - the first being illegal and the second being legal because it's indirect.

    I hate these half-stories. Give us more examples. Why the hell was he doing it in the first place?

    Half the world's wildlife gone over last 40 years. Oops.

    On the plus side, the human population has tripled in that time, so at least all that space isn't going to waste.

    Was listening to this today. They stated that the US still has the largest carbon footprint and if everyone lived as the average American we'd need 4 earths minimum to support that lifestyle. As the world is now - and headed - we need two. I'm calling WW III by 2050. Fallout is finally going to happen. Life imitating art because war, war never changes.

    Talk is cheap. As is EA's quality assurance.

    There QA isn't the problem, it's management as always. At EA it simply comes down to a ship date regardless of how many bugs are left. They don't care about the volume of bugs, only crash bugs. So long as it's stable-ish then 'ship that fucker' is there motto!

    All good series generally take about 3 seasons before they hit they stride, so unless they have some real longevity they're generally ending too soon.

    Would be nice, Tim, but that ship has sailed.

    The problem isn't AT&T so much as it's the governments they're buying off. If the voters in those districts won't do anything about it then it's their own fault. If you don't care about democracy you don't deserve it and won't have it.
