The issue in a nut shell is the company making the game had a similar donation set up to make Mech Warrior Online, which turned out to be substantially different than what it was originally described to be. This game appeared to be a rip off of star citizen thus people were concerned about what to expect.

MMO that is bound to become F2P check
Suspiciously low system requirements Check
Vague website about what the game is & what it will look like Check
Very high price Check

Yup seems like it'll be a great game!

Didn't anyone else notice the for PC, mac and tablets and phones. How on earth is anything made to run on a tablet or phone going to be deep?

A tablet or phone is just a device. Touchscreen interfaces are pretty limited, sure, but they work fine for specific genres. Fallout 1 and 2, for example, would work fine on a tablet since the mouse-based UI and gameplay translates well to touch-based.

how about them having small screens, limited memory and processors? I know they've gotten stronger but its nowhere near a desktop processor.

I feel like you're confusing "depth" with "pretty graphics." A deep game doesn't need to look good. Gameplay has nothing to do with presentation. The original X-COM looks like crap but has tons of depth. I'm pretty sure any modern phone or tablet could run X-COM just fine.

I explained it poorly the point was, please name a game that is made for tablets or smart phones that is "deep". That market simply wants quick simple games. When I hear a game is being developed to work on desktops and smart phones I generally assume its going to smart phone style of quick and easy but not too much to hold my attention.

Kill it, this is the worst piece of crap game. Even the premise makes no sense. Cops need to bring money as evidence back to base, assault cars and copters that have mini guns on them, a city that has no civilians in it at all.

Remember the phrase "up to" is interchangeable with the phrase "less than"

Or you could just play Eve

I tried it twice, can't get past the no real control of your ship and not being able to do stuff off your ship. I do love to read about Eve and its massive battles or schemes that come up.

56 employees lost their jobs. Did upper management take pay cuts or lose bonuses?

Well since CCP lost money last year that usually puts a damper on bonuses. I would also assume at least a portion of the 56 that lost their jobs were involved with managing the others.

What little they spoke about this game always sounded too good to be true, no surprises here.
I would love to see an MMO that is open world that is challenging, unfortunately it looks like I am doomed to follow the hack job MMOs like Mortal Online and Darkfall or some kind of Korean grinder.

It obviously won't be a Star Wars game because they lost that license and I doubt they'd get it back. However, a sandbox MMOG with open play with a wide variety of things to do, and the best crafting of any MMOG. If they could bring that back with modern MMOG mechanics, I'd certainly be very interested.

maybe they got the "spaceballs" license.
