Regarding what CJ Parker said, for those looking to see what Roberts actually is saying you can find it here:

Yeah I'm with you on that it remains to be seen.
I just choose to withhold throwing insults ala Cutter until we have actual proof of the developer pulling a fast one on their customers, which up to this point Roberts has not done.
I have been following the development with much pleasure. The ride so far has been more fun than lots of games I paid good money for.

I think this nicely leads into a point many people miss about Star Citizen. To get the game, including the Squadron 42 single player campaign, you only need to pay $45. That gets you a starter ship, access to Arena Commander, the persistent universe beta and the final game.

Will someone who spends $250 or even $15k have an advantage over someone who puts in $45? Depending on the circumstances, a little, but not a lot. The whole concept of pay to win in the context of Star Citizen is murky and not well explained. If you have a better ship, you are likely to win if you are fighting someone with a cheaper ship. But that assumes you are going to be fighting. Much of the game is going to be like Privateer, missions, trade, encounters etc. There will also be mining and exploration. You may have an advantage over others when you have a better ship, but in the scheme of the game, winning is about having fun and not who has the biggest bank balance.

90% of the game's population are NPCs and they are designed to be difficult to distinguish between players and NPCs. The game will begin with NPCs having all types of ships from starter ships to capital ships. Being concerned about if a player will have a better ships isn't the question you should be worried about.

One more thing not mentioned frequently is that the game is playable offline and you can run your own private modifiable servers. If you don't want to 'compete' with people who have put in more money than you, you can enjoy it on your own server with your own group of friends.

The final point is that balancing has not been done. Their goal is to balance the ships so that there is no one ship which is good at everything. It has been described as rock-paper-scissors. A space superiority fighter may be excellent against ships of similar size or smaller, but useless against larger targets. A heavy bomber may be excellent against larger ships, but nearly useless against smaller ones. A gunship may be excellent for close-support, but useless against stand-off missileboats.

Those who have put in far too much money by our standards will not dominate, they have said that progression to bigger ships will be fairly easy and not take a lot of time. The Constellation Andromeda, a ship which sells for $225 in the pledge store, will be affordable with 40-60 hours of playtime.

Teamwork in this game will be extremely valuable. Finding a good organisation compatible with your playstyle and goals will be key to getting the most out of the game.

If you love space games, don't write off Star Citizen as some pay to win paradise, because it isn't. $45 is a bargain for what you get right now. The final sale price of the game is likely to be comparable to most AAA titles.

Just because Cutter says SQ42 will be 1 hour doesn't make it so. Roberts has already said just the first 10 missions alone is bigger than any of his other games. You can choose to call him a liar if you want, that is up to you.

I'm playing the paid version on steam at 2560x1440 with a R9 290 and so far it's running everything great at near max settings with the latest patch. Is there any way to skip the intro movies when I load the game?

People are concerned about SC because the devs are promising a hell of a lot - which IMHO makes similar feature cuts/delays almost inevitable.
RSI may have a tiny little bit more ressources available (and still rolling millions in) than Frontier Developement ever dreamt of.

You really cant compare both projects. They only share the same genre and setting, nothing more.

I thought Frontier got 90 million from IPO ?

I think there are a lot of disappointed people out there because Far Cry 4 is not much of a blockbuster. Nice graphics and new area, but everything else is almost identical to 3.

What's wrong with that? A lot of people buy sequels because they loved the previous game. I would play a completely different game if I'm looking for something new. But If I want more Far Cry, I'll play Far Cry 4. That's how it goes.

Exactly. I loved FC3 so I bought FC4. Looking forward to playing it this week

Has anyone gone through the process of requesting a refund?
some special link I have to go to?
I will proceed with my request, I logged in a total of 15 minutes I think since I bought the Alpha and not only am I not impressed, the way Braben lied about shit warrants this move.

You have to put in a request through their e-store, same place you bought the Alpha.


Are you gonna cry like a baby when they tell you that they are not goning to refund you due to you having played it in alpha?

Did you not understand when you payed them money, that the game may not turn out to be everything you hoped?

What is it you don't like about the gameplay?

Why don't you in the future, wait until a product is finished and released to buy it if you are only gonna play 15 mins of the alpha?

Please tell me, what it was that failed to impress you?

Had you ever played any of the earler Elite games?



What bothers you so much that I am requesting a refund? Will you cry like baby when I get my money back? I bought the game so I could play when offshore with zero internet connection because that's what was promised. I will not be able to play now during those times.
Lie = money back end of story.
Game being shitty is just icing on the cake

I agree, Far Cry 3 was awesome. First game I completed in years- and that right there to me means a shitload about how much I enjoyed it.
So I bought FC4 day 1.
Haven't had the time to try it yet, but looking forward to it.

Actually, the legal definition of theft is 'the appropriation of property belonging to another with the intention of permanently depriving the other of it'. Given that copyright infringement does not deprive the copyright owner of said property it is NOT theft, as least from a legal perspective. However, that does not justify it.

Honestly, why would I care about the "legal definition" unless I was a lawyer or on trial? And really what is all this nonsense about semantics? Taking something that you have no right to take is at the heart of the matter, regardless of what you want to call it. All this silliness about semantics is pointless.

Exactly this.

Oh he'll deliver SQ42 alright, he's not that stupid to break a promise like that. However, it'll be an hour long campaign and that's it. After that, everything will be online and monetized up the ass.


Well he did say that SQ42 would be the "tutorial" for SC. So maybe you're right about that.


Pretty sure they said just the 1st 10 missions would be bigger than the original Wing Commander and clock in at 25+ hours.

You can choose not to believe a word they say, but the reality will most likely be well over "1 hour" of gameplay.

And for people complaining about paying full price, take a hike. How many other games offer this bang for the buck? Skyrim? Fallout: NV? BL2? There are very few.

As for my intention to not pay full price, but to wait for a sale, or for a complete change of scenery, just pirate this fucker, the reason is not any perceived lack of bang for buck. Instead I do not want to support their asshole policy of (almost) indefinitely delaying PC versions, and for generally treating PC gamers like shrooms. A company like that is not getting full price from me. They can go and fuck themselves with the $4.99 I might spend on a complete version in a Steam sale.

oh look another " I'm proud to steal" douchebag

for those interested in what he actually said


His departure post

btw your post makes very little sense. First you say "a studio without any lead blah blah smoke weed" and then you say "there are other leads in Austin so his story is a blatant lie"

so which one is it?

C'mon guys - there is a Star Citizen monthly update linked here and no one has said anything to bash Roberts or his cash cow. Where am I supposed to get my daily entertainment?!?

Don't worry, a Letter from the Chairman is coming soon since they hit 60 million. actually they are even 55% into 61 mil.

So the insults will be coming in soon enough, hang in there Prez
