How are those who are playing still enjoying this?

Could you be more clear, what do you really mean?

I still play this, played just a hour ago. I get a lot of enjoyment out of scoring goals and saving them. I play 3v3 games and when you can get togeather even(ish) teams that are happy with rematches for 4 or 5 games in a row its great fun.

It's also very frustrating in a fun way when you make mistakes.

It's an easy to understand simple game that has a good amount of skill to work on, fast paced adrenalin rushes. Easy to get into a game at anytime and runs find on most hardware (cross platform play aswell). Network is smooth as. Good local co-op as well. I even enjoy the music which is not really the kind of music I normal get into. Nice short games as well, about 6 to ten mins max.

All the DLC is cosmetic.

What's your problem with it? The concept?

Did I answer your question?

To agree with what Peeeling is saying, I would have thought that you would 'white box'/make a simple interal version of the spaceflight and combat before you start investing all those man hours into making 'fidelity' ships. (let alone sell concepts for ships of which they really have no idea about how they will work in a game that they still don't seem to have any idea about how the 'flight model' will work)*

That AC 2.0/miniverise demo they showed looked like the ships handled like a camera in a 3d engine. No momentum or innertion for that large multi man ship (connie?) 42.00 mins in video - or is that just me?

This lack of making a work lo-fi version of gameplay to me explains why they have failed on Star Marine - Chris cared to much about the 1st/3rd person animation that they could not get a mock up going and work on the gameplay. 45mins to 46mins is the fps part? That totally suck huge donkey balls - it's a fps which have been around for years, in a fps engine and it had nothing, not even on level with early 2000 fps - at this stage? Have they not been working on this part for over a year? (oh, that's right, it's all illfonics fault) It's not even at Quake 2 level yet! (well maybe just)

To much effort on the fidelity, not giving the gameplay a chance to be developed. I feel they have this backwards.


*did I not see that in the upcoming patch to something that there was now gonna be 4 diffent settings of 'flight mode'

Krovven talking about 'comprehension' is funny when he then states this -

Your ethics state that it's not okay to have a wife work at the same company as her husband (not illegal), but it's okay to harass (illegal) the company, it's employees and their families.

I never said that or anything like that but he lacks comprehension. I only ever said it should/would be best to disclose this openly so as to avoid the bad publicity that it could lead too.

To quote myself -

Well It think they should have, it would have been the open, transperant way to go about it. To not do it only make it look deceptive.

Also this from Krovven -

I don't know how many times this needs to be stated...they are not a public company. Just because the game is crowd sourced, does not make them a public company. It does not make anyone share holders in the company. It does not give them vote rights on company standards and practices. People gave them money based on promises. Promises that everyone knew full well may or may not come to fruition.

Which I take is his rant in reply to me saying -

To quote Krovven - "Private company. They do not owe anyone any explanation as to who they hire."

Completely true but to rebut what you said I would say that it's very bad public relations for such a public company. If you don't agree that's fine.

Using read comprehension, I would have thought that it was ovious that I was talking about them being in the media and the likes, not that they where owned by the public. Is that just me or did he take that the wrong way?

Kudos to theyarecomingforyou for his run down and pictures of Citizencon.

Any chance of a rundown/review of you Citizencon theyarecomingforyou?

I will say I thought, for what I've watched, it was a much better persetation than there earlier ones (that's not saying to much, they have had some shockers). It would have been cool just hanging out with a Concord.

Although I can be prone to trolling Star Citizen, there was some good stuff they showed, just for me, not any good gameplay, which should be the goal of a PC game.

I thought the writing was shit.

I did think the Star Map was very good and have checked it out and was impressed (6/10) although it's not gameplay (yet)

I did not care about the actors.

The cake and sing happy birthday was lame as (but I'm not a cultizen backer of the game)

The Amway programme was a shock - that's dodgy imho - anyone who need a refural can use mine - B33N1NG F0R CHR7S

A lot of good talking points there Krovven.

but do you not think they should have laid their marriage out there to start with to avoid all of this?

- No.

Well It think they should have, it would have been the open, transperant way to go about it. To not do it only make it look deceptive. (when it finial came out, why hide it?)

Why do you think they should not have?

I understand completely that one is illegal, and the other is not.
I will add here that I don't know much about what doxxing? is. (I take it that it is getting info and posting it about people) I don't know what was 'dox' about Chris and his child, I'm not interested in that, but accept that it sounds scummy. (Derek did post, in response to me in a thread something about where the Robert's house is)

Is that illegal? If so, can I not repeat what I have discovered from chatting with others on the internet about any of many things?

What I've seen is Chris making a company and making mistakes while doing so. He isn't the first and he won't be the last. I don't agree with the business model, but that doesn't mean I don't hope they succeed so I can enjoy it in a few years time for a few bucks. What I see from Derek is a bitter egotistical man with many failed games over the years (and a current one), that has attacked Chris before (like 15 yrs ago).

I think the business model of selling internet spaceships and even concepts of internet spaceships for many time the price of a PC game for a game that at best is at alpha phase is really bad and will do all I can to dissuade anyone for putting that kind of money into the project. It's based way to much on faith for my liking - others may disagree.

I really don't wish to see this as the future of PC gaming.

You some up Derek nicely there, does not mean that he is wrong though, many thing he has said are true, and he has broken many bits of news before anyone else (Alex and Travis leaving, which CiG said nothing about till pushed. The delay to Star Marine, which Ben then said was "weeks, not months" away yet months later there is still no sign of it. The recent departures of staff. Plus more).

What's this about him attacking Chris 15 years ago?, I'm keen to hear more on that if you would be so nice.

Private company. They do not owe anyone any explanation as to who they hire.

Completely true but to rebut what you said I would say that it's very bad public relations for such a public company. If you don't agree that's fine.

That's not what I said is it? I said "fuck YOUR ethics". Did you not understand anything I wrote prior to that? Your ethics are as valuable as your opinion, they are your own and nobody else has to abide by them.

So to you ethic have no value if you don't agree with another person version of them? It's just "fuck YOUR ethics" Is that what you are saying?

I don't have very good reading comprention, I often misunderstand written things. Dyslexia sorry (also why my written English can sometime break down, I just hope you can figure it out some what - I've tried extra hard this post just for you)

Nepotism is not illegal, nor is it required to be disclosed. Ethics is a matter of determining right and wrong, which is entirely debatable and is debated every day in every single city and town across the globe. Your ethics will not and do not align with every one elses.

Totally true, and a good point, which is why we are debating it (and why there are course on ethics in busness teached at many universities and other places), but do you not think they should have laid their marriage out there to start with to avoid all of this? I think that would have been wise to do.

If you want to go with "ethics" as your argument...where are the ethics in doxing and harassing a family, the company they created and the people that work there?

I think that is bad but its not what I'm commenting on, I think you are confusing two issuies.

And yes Derek is a dick (does dick moves), but so is Chris (also does dick moves), it's an illegal cock fight!

To answer some of the above post about Sandi's job and weather or not she was qulifidy for it, part of the answer is in was the job postion advertised before she fulled it.

Go fuck your ethics.

So you don't care about ethics at all then? Are you now trying to be a 13 year old.

By The way, I take it you think my Sandi vigina joke is on a 10 year old level - which it is - I'm inclusive like that Jester It also got you to rant so I think I get a troll point for it Trollbashing

Why did nobody come out and say they were married? Because it's nobody's business and because mouth breathing retards would make a mountain out of molehill just like they have been doing. Sandi being his wife has no bearing on anything at all. None.

Why did nobody say they are married? Really? Do you understand what ethics are?

Hello, nepotism anyone?

Your a grown up, you must have worked for people in your life. Do you understand what disclosure is?

My Mother was my accountant for many years, did I tell everyone I worked for that, no (not that I hid it, it was not relavent). Why because it had no effect on the jobs or funding of the jobs. Myself or my mother where never in a public facing role for anyone I ever worked for (I was maybe when I worked in advertising - at that time I was paid wages not invoicing for work)

Chris Roberts, and his wife Sandi, where both making many public statements in an effort to rise funds for the public.

Do you agree?

While doing that, they never choose not to disclose that they where in a relationship.

The money they where seeking was partially going to pay them both.

It's called ETHICS

It sounds like see was given a job of marketing and acting and costuemer support. Paid for by donor money (how much?)- did the donors know she was married to the 'chiarman' no, not really, they was whispers about it of which neither of them had the morals to answer truthfully. They where deceptive - not a good look at all.

It's simply ethics (I'm now using that word like Chris and "fidelity"). It would never happen in a public traded company.

Why are you excusing it? Is that because you would like to abuse Derek dispite him be right about it?

I wish I was 10 again - I now know so much I would like to do in my teens.

Korrd - can you point out where either of them as said they where married earlier than a month ago please.

EDIT - I mean look at this, she is fourth billing, on the casting roster, you really think she should be fourth amongst those actors?

Mate, I have no money in Star Cultizen, never have, you did, a lot of money, like 15 triple A PC computer games (3-5 years of good ok gaming, depending on what you brought)

You claiming that Chris Roberts lied about total cost, how long it would take, and scope is totally true but to invest that much money in a project based on what someone is promising is silly and you fell for it totally.

You are EMOTIONALY stuck on this, don't pretend otherwise, you look silly. (like Derek does)

You should just chill and let the cards fall where they may.

I Don't think you or Derek are wrong only you are both over hyping it JUST like Christ Roberts does.

But, Does that mean if nobody watches this shit you will quit discussing it. I can abide by those conditions, On one condition, heh heh, that you don't discuss this anymore and quit parroting everything that Derek does. Agreed. I thought so.

I will criticize the project as the evidence has been presented. You can keep drinking CIG's Kool-Aid and supporting them like a blind tool. I don't give a shit. What those videos did help me understand was the level of delusional thinking you are willing to engage in. As far as I see you are "emotionally compromised".

I'm not. That's the huge difference. I don't have ANY money invested in Star Citizen. I don't really give a shit one way or the other. What I personally care about is the damage CIG could cause the crowdfunding and space sim genre if they collapse. This is why I hope, emphasize hope, the game comes out and becomes a hit. Time will tell.

Hahahahhaha, your right, you have no money invested because they refunded your $900+ dollars.

What you do have invested is emotion which you are now projecting on others. You where foolish to ever give CiG that much money and you know it, you got luck/persived to get your money back, well done.

Now you rant like a manic, going form one extreame (give CiG over $900 dollars) to another (everything Derek says is tot true all)

It's getting more sad than funny - for both sides sake, could you pull it back to only slightly unhinged?

All you look like now is foolish both ways.

But, no, Christ Roberts played CoD Advanced Warfare, saw Kevin Spacey as president and thought "me too"... *sigh*

Don't kid yourself CJ, Christ Roberts wont have played CoD, he fucking hates games, it's all about Hollywood movies for him - that's why he married an actress VP of Marketing, and is how making a computer generated movie slideshow.

Still, amazing fidelity cult he's managed to pull together, they are buying it totally, (get a 8 pack of ships for just $2500, but be quick 48 hours only).

Now, the work that one of the contracting companies (not RSI,CiG,F42 or Chris Roberts), FaceWare? is doing with the face animation (in a demo setting) has my interest if they can extend it to whole body, and ship it with a virtual Kylie Minogue.

Whoo, I just watch the start of the citizenCON stream.

OMG, watching Sandi Gardien talk - wtf - she ended with saying something like 'as you all know, I'm Chris wife, it's not a secrete" will it's not now but for the last 3 years her and Chris treaded it like it was I would say. How deciptive was that.

Later in the stream, Chris is introducing a programme to introduce a reward programme to get your friends into Star Citizen -

WARNING WARNING CULT AHEAD WARNING WARNING

Also more limited (48 hour) shit sales for up to $2500 for a 8 ship pack with a 'you can't buy this any other way' ship* in it. GOT TO GET THEN ALL!

The mans disrespect for the fan base is sicking. It's already on par with the worst days of the big publishers.

By the way, Ubisoft called and want their Watchdog 'over promise games show trailers, under deliver lunch day' marketing back.

*it's a concept - you currently get nothing but the other finished ships.

So CJ, how much do you think that cast would cost?

I'd imaging that Sandi Gardiner would not be cheap, she's married to that hot shot movie/computer game producer. Most likely a million dollars just for her Clown

While the twitlong post may not be illegal in the US, it's still an incredibly shitty move by DS to drag a young child into this and no amount of "but it's legal" is going to change the fact that he did drag a young child into this, linked clear name and picture.. WHY?

Someone name me 1 good reason why DS had to post a link an image and real name of CR's child in this crusade..... and insinuate at the very least her real life address.

Because I still fail to see what any of that has to do with Star Citizen

This is insofar an incredible state of things as the part where he gives ideas how to do Star Citizen better ( http://www.dereksmart.org/2015/10/star-citizen-the-endgame/#comment-2645 ) is mostly on point. For fucks sake, I agree with Derek Smart, but not on his weird definition of doxxing. If that was his child on that twitlong post it would be doxxing , we all know that

What's wrong with that , you all use faceshit , says yes to everything that sucks you dry of personal data running winspy 10 google whatapp and so on , your guru suckitberg says there is no privacy anymore..so go to the whinning wall and cry Book

I agree, while it's not cool to use children in a fight, it's also not cool (in my mind) to complain about people using data that you yourself have made public. While using children's data is on my scale a 8/10 bad, posting data of your children (I don't know about this context, don't really know about this claim) online in a public state is also not good (5/10).

People should be very aware that anything they put online, use a reward card, social media, ect is open to be used against your interest and you should really thing twice about it.

Discloser, over %90 of my online activity would be found here on Bluesnews, I trust Stephen Heaslip for some strange reason, I've been reading his site since the late 90's. Bluesnews Privacy Policy

Would those who have a problem with Derek's 'doxxing' of Chris and his wife, Sandi (whom Chris had nothing to say about until recently) and child, care as much and rant about it if there was no child involved, or is it just a convenit point to attack Derek with?

I don't think anyone other than the Roberts family posted that content on the internet.

To me, Chris was deciptive to shy away form fronting up earlier to that fact that Sandi is his wife, and this is what got people interested in finding out if it was true.

This only mattered due to her being the VP of marketing/co-creator (really?) for CIG/Star Citizen, a crowd funded project that was sold on being open and transprenat with the backers.

By the way, I think Derek can be a dick but that does not mean he is not right (or wrong, as he has been on this severaly times already). I like a good clown as much as the next guy.
