I have been very vocal on reddit as a staunch opponent to the current state of this game.. in terms of features.

1. 20 vs 20 is not a battle, the damn PS4 ad even makes it look like there's a huge battle on Hoth, there isn't. The Battlefront2 game had 32 vs 32 and NPCs playing as well. That was a battle.

2. No dedicated servers. How the hell did we have dedicated servers 10 year ago for the previous title, but not this one now? I suppose griefers and jerks will ruin peoples fun in this game. I have played enough Battlefield 4 to know griefers exist, and on non-adminned servers, this is going to be a pain in the ass. There are still people playing on modded BF2 servers to this day. Modding and dedicated servers arent here though.

3. No classes. Who the hell thought this was a good idea? Let's remove the classes in favor of throwaway 1-time use powerups we have to pick up. Better hope people aren't camping those power up spawns. Repair items, nope. Be a heavy weps guy for anti vehicles..not a chance. It's very watered down in terms of loadouts.

4. Here's a huge AT AT.. one guy pilots it though, no room for others at all.. not in transport, not nothing. Oh, and he raced to the beginning to get the power up so he could pilot it.

5. Wanna fly? better hope you get a power up! Can't just have the regulars running to the hangers to get an X Wing and take to the air.. because nobody who is a SW fan likes flying space ships. I put a lot of time in the small window of the beta, and got 3 ships total. I also only got 1 hero (Vader) but it bugged out on me.

6. Space battles? Nope, can't have those either!

7. There is absolutely zero teamwork options built into the game. No commander type person, no telling your team to attack an objective or defend something.. nothing.

8. The spawning system sucks. It spawned me away from anywhere useful more often than not, and generally in the worst places possible.. and no, you cant choose where to spawn, because you're not an adult gamer.

I swear to GabeN, that aside from sound and visuals, this game has gone backwards in EVERY POSSIBLE WAY!! It's very pretty and sounds amazing..aside from that, it's embarrassing how backwards this game went with regards to features and mechanics.

This is is 100% catered to casuals who will play the game for 2 months, then opt out for whatever shiny new BS comes out next. This game has no long term shelf life imho.

Let me add one more, no "ping" counter. So how are those of us who are from more remote parts of the World, like Europe or Australia or Asia going to compete is anyone's fucking guess. Or in other words, this game is a LPB's wet dream.

I wonder why no one has challenged the illegality of offshoring. It's essentially an illegal smuggling operation: services produced out of country are imported without going through customs, without subject to tariff laws.

Because, Capitalism?

i dont believe it, also if its not important at launch it means this game focuses on the wrong shit altogether... cheap cash in, as i have thought since the beginning

d&d pedigree is not nearly what it once was

That was apparent on the day they released the 4.0 edition of the P&P game.

I'm sure it's just a cultural thing. They will deny everything because it would be bad manners to do anything else at this point. (After all his contract runs through to December)

Yet they are going to buy anyway. This is the message you are sending to EA. You complain all you want but when it comes to see where the pavement meets the road, you buy anyway.

Yeah, people need to learn to vote with their wallet. Angry Joe isn't helping. At all.

Well good luck to you Star Wars fans, I hope J.J. doesn't skewer the movies and the universe for you like he did with my beloved Star Trek....with that said, I don't see how he could do worse than Lucas did already...

He needs a good Villain though, it's hard to see how he will ever top Vader...

Star Citizen posts are the daily hate around here. People come for these posts, not necessarily explicitly only for them, but with the full intention to commiserate with like-minded fellows and get a deep bitter draft of vitriol to the point of absolute parody. There is no objectively, just a deep loathing about a game that they are either paradoxically waiting to see if its good, have no interest in playing, or have already divested themselves of their previous donations. You're either going to shit, or get off the pot: standing in the washroom complaining about the smell makes you look stupid, or it means you like it. Do you like it?

Another blanket statement, look Krovven, this is the definition of taking a huge fucking dump one the entire Blues community. Something that arguably the founder of said community (and the members themselves) might take offense at.

Now an example of something that isn't a blanket statement: Fuck your blanket statements CitizenP, if you don't like it here go back to the hole you crawled out of!

Kosumo, Blues post was no less trolling than the other guys post. Blue hasn't made a post like that I've seen in relation to SC before, for either side of the debate.

The amount of shit posted from either side over the last many weeks and that's the post he chooses to comment on?


Do you understand the difference between a blanket statement and the other forms of trolling? Do you understand why Blue would take offense at something like that? I don't think you do, so I'll illustrate below:

You realize that DCS is not fun right? It's neat and Cool but anything that takes 11 minutes to just undock is a fucking chore.

Ha! You, sir, don't know how to have fun!

I installed the new DCS 1.5 module last week and went about installing all the available aircraft I had available and firing them all up just to see if I could do it. The FW-190 gave me quite a bit of trouble, everything was in german for starters, because the engine startup sequence on that thing involved a weird charge switch that you'd have to hold in the up position for about 10 seconds then press it down to fire the engine. This wasn't explained well enough in the instructions so I kept trying to fire the engine without enough charge to actually turn it over. You can imagine how many laughs I got when I couldn't start it for the 5th time in a row. So I fired up the ole youtube and watched someone else do it. Had a good laugh see that the engine start level needed to be held up for you actually start the engine, obviously, hahaha.

And then I tried starting up the p51. That was in english so I figured I'd be able to stumble through it but a very similar problem came up. I'd kick over the engine and it wouldn't start! Well after a good laugh seeing the engine spin up and sputter to a halt at least a dozen times I fired up the ole youtuber and watched someone do it to figure out what I was doing wrong.

Turns out you have to start the engine once with a mixture of oil and gas then let it stop, then move the mixture lever back to normal operation and fire it up a second time to get the engine to start. Apparently I was essentially flooding the engine when I started it in the primer position. Once I got that engine running it purred like a kitten. So I promptly kicked that engine into gear and tryed to taxi my way out to the runway only to roll my plane because I failed to keep my speed low enough so I could turn without causing the plane to spin around and blow up.

It was glorious fun!


You can skip all this fun though, you can just tell it to drop you on the runway ready for take off. Turn on the take off assist and auto rudder and you only need to push the engine power up and you'll take off.

Flying is a whole different level of fun too! So many things to screw up that will send you cartwheeling into the ground!

Agreed, DCS is awesome. I have a pretty good setup Im really comfortable with now finally. TrackIR5, MS FFB2 joystick (force feedback FTW!), Saitek Pro Pedals, X52 HOTAS throttle. Starting up a virtual plane might not be everyone's cup of tea but when you realize that it's done exactly like in the real one and knowing that you could jump into a real cockpit and do it is an immensely satisfying feeling. Just starting up, taking her up, flying for a bit and landing safely is like nothing else really. Not to mention getting into the combat. Currently Im learning the L39C and loving it even though it's just a trainer.

With all of that said, Im not looking for that in a space sim. I want them to make a good game, and so far nothing that RSI has shown of Star Citizen has me convinced they are anywhere close to that goal.

Every time they just shift the focus - the S42 reveal was good so suddenly it's 'they must have spent $37m on the cast'. It's comical.

As Taylor Swift sang: haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate.

Blahblah parroting the company line as always and taking everything at face value instead of looking at what is actually happening and drawing conclusion on your own.

Besides, I for one am not shifting focus. I've already said that the Squadron 42 reveal sucked major ass. Even Uwe Boll would be embarrassed if he showed off a cheesy pretentious trailer speech like that. That crap was not even B-movie worthy.
No, Sir. They showed zero Squadron 42 gameplay. Z.E.R.O. Nada. Zilch. Niente. Fuck all.
Just a cheesy as fuck mo-capped Gary Oldman who can't even pronounce the name of his character -Admiral Bishop- straight at his age. Fuck their lame-ass Squadron 42 reveal. It couldn't have been more disappointing than that.

Actually I thought the Sq42 trailer was pretty cool. Would have been better with Malcolm McDowell but still, pretty cool. The thing is this though, it was just a pretty cutscene. Thats all. Then we got to see the player walking around on a ship interacting with crew mates. Once again, pretty cool. But where is the gameplay? Where is the meat of the game? Star Trek Elite Force had you walking around on a ship. But that was a first person shooter released 15 years ago. Where is the ship to ship combat? Where are the mission briefings? Where is the ship loadout screen? Where are the missions? Where is the combat? Where does it all come together? Show me some of that and I'll be excited that they might have a game on their hands. Until then it's like CJ said, smoke and mirrors.

Probably less than 0.0001% of the ones who will buy the game and have a metric crapton of fun with it.

I hope you are right.

... and if they spent their time fixing the animations at this early development stage you'd just bitch that they should be focusing on core gameplay first or some other bullshit.

There is literally nothing they could say that you would believe or that will please you until they release something, just admit that and move on.

Actually there is. They could simply release a video of someone playing through one mission in Squadron42. You know briefing, flight deck, launch, space-flight through various waypoints, maybe some combat and a RTB. A typical mission from the Wing Commander days of old. Thats all. Simple really. This video of someone floating around in a space station is not gonna cut it.

They serve a purpose as a generational bridge, I don't see whats so wrong with doing them.

I was making a lame joke. If I were to hazard a guess, I think that EA doesn't want to renegotiate the licensing fees for these properties all over again. I'm reasonably sure that it doesn't own the IPs of the most popular of the games.

Hmm, I preordered 10 copies and plan on selling them on ebay at 100% markup. Will I get burned?

I don't know. Is it going to be a limited release? Are they going to run out of stock? This is not what Im talking about anyway.

Cautiously optimistic about this one. They've done successful Kickstarters before so no worries about feature creep, lousy management, etc. Fingers crossed!
