Drama, drama... From here on, I will wait for the great final: either "Star Citizen Goes Gold" or "Star Citizen: How The Mighty Have Fallen". Which means: I won't read any article on SC coming out in the next 10 years or so.

Then how will you get your monthly intake of popcorn? Popcorn

Imagine this. You being a money person, Steven Spielberg came to you and pitched a movie about horses during World War 2. Given his history with this genre, you jump at the chance. Then you see "Warhorse, " and you regret the decision. Star Citizen is Chris Roberts' "Warhorse."
Haha! Nice analogy Kx.

Hey, at least Spielberg finished Warhorse.
Yeah, but we wish he hadn't...

Well, it's only slightly better than "A.I. Artificial Intelligence"; a fusion of Steven Spielberg and Stanley Kubrick's styles that doesn't quite work.

Yeah, Occam's razor: Which is more likely, some idiots pooled $45K, or some dude faked it and posted it on Reddit?

Besides, nobody goes on Steam for its Community groups. They go on Steam to buy and play games.

So turns out the refund story was fakenews
Wait, you mean like i called it in the first post.

“the account in question was issued an individual refund of $330, not the $45,000 claimed”

Derek Smart is trying to spin this like a coked up Breitbart intern caught buggering Steve Bannon on live TV. sad

Derek's noise about Star Citizen has been helpful, but he is his own brand of crazy.

What is specifically the blatant example of Chris Roberts lying?


I made Chris' lies a core reason when requesting a refund. https://pastebin.com/mSM29KZs

Would it be better to just put all those cheaters on a special map for cheaters? Then they can do whatever they want.

Yes, trolls LIKE PLAYING with other trolls. Separating them from normal player matches just makes sense.
Watch the video, the guy say they are not going to do that.
Kind of a :"Everyone should just be nice to each other", pie in the sky attitude.
I'm all for banning the trolls, cheaters, griefers and stream stalkers.

Have none of you seen No Escape starring Ray Liotta?

Hasn't SQ42 now shifted from a space flight sim like wing commander, to some sort of pseudo-fps with some ship-to-ship combat?

With Chris Roberts' ADD-styled approach to game development who knows. For all we know SQ42 could turn out to be really fancy Minesweeper clone.

Ech, if you're willing to spend 45K on vaporware, you should be willing to lose 45K on vaporware. Sure, I guess they didn't know the extent of the delays and/or lies when they signed up, and I am happy they got their money back.

Hindsight is 20/20. In other words, it is effortless to make such statements when the project has clearly gone off the rails. Let's not forget that Origin and Microsoft Games Studio did release more than a few of Chris Roberts game to positive response and glowing success.

Imagine this. You being a money person, Steven Spielberg came to you and pitched a movie about horses during World War 2. Given his history with this genre, you jump at the chance. Then you see "Warhorse, " and you regret the decision. Star Citizen is Chris Roberts' "Warhorse."

I guess when Sandi Gardiner Roberts handled my $930 refund request personally that was before the hailstorm of incoming refund requests.

FYI: https://pastebin.com/mSM29KZs

Update: Typo with Sandi's name

Just got the whole shebang for $5.30, for that I couldn't resist. Damn you Star Wars!

If hardly anyone is playing this multiplayer-only game, was it worth a purchase even at that price point?

Actually 2.x was branched from master about 15 months ago when 2.4 was released. While the features from 2.5 and 2.6 would have been merged to master, some fixes would have been too time consuming to merge to the old branch they have been releasing from.

Very few people on this site care about such trivialities given Roberts brand of hyperbolic promotion and bombastic release schedules.
