I'm optimistic still about SC btw, just very cautious. Still only planning on $50 and that's it if I like what I see later on.

I too have heard mixed messages regarding private servers, I can't find much about it anymore. There's Chris talking about here from April 2015. Even WoW has private servers which daring players mod and run, but Blizzard can't do anything about that. Basically what Chris seems to be saying is that if someone wants to run a private server, they can have something "like" PU dependent on how well they mod it, and get it running and updated constantly, but if you want people to join it with reliable ping that depends on your own connection speeds and computer server (unless you buy a server).

Basically I wanted the private server for a couple different reasons:

- Joining custom made servers that have realism options or fair progression (first person only, third person switched OFF, and depending on someone's chosen starting profession they start with a certain ship instead of having access to some super ship they bought as a backer).
- OR making my own server for only select friends to join as we play against AI in a 'persistent' type setting to avoid griefers and use whatever ships we feel like
- OR truly just messing around and download/install cool or silly things like Star Destroyers or something; or heck a total conversion of SC with original Wing Commander ships and 8 foot Kilrathi

And chrissi just love peps like you , blinded fouled to belive ...jezz

Indeed the backers do have a right to know. I'd imagine he was trying to pull the game back on target - you know, a space game about space ships - and Roberts wasn't having any of it - not whilst there are still more sheep to be fleeced.

They don't have any right at all very simple

What concerns me is:

1) CIGs refusal to balance and tune what they have released so far. As it stands, AC gameplay is bad, and it only takes some XML tweaks to bring it up to snuff, and they refuse to take care of it. It's such low hanging fruit that people on the forums modded it to sort out the imba issues.
And if they do that ... people will complain that they spend ressources on this instead of "finishing" something else. CIG is in a position where they cant please everyone at the same time. Too many people want too many things. Will CIG fulfill all expectations? No, of course not. Someone WILL be dissapointed.

2) Too many cooks. 500 people is a lot of dough. Even if they make only 40 k per year (a pittance), that's 20M per year. Plus development is a few years in already. 85m isn't a lot of money for that size of a group. I have no doubt that they can eventually make it happen - just not with 85m going at this pace with this many people. At this pace, they need to secure more funding - which means solid and fun demos (point #1) and more milestones launched, even if not polished.
This will probably happen. But ... it is GOOD that this will happen, because otherwise they will polish modules and gameplay features till eternity, never to release anything. They have to make a commercial release soon. First, to generate more income from actual game sales to people who havent donated and second, to generate more donations, because they had a commercial release, proving they can deliver.

Will it be good game? I dont know. We will see

to generate more donations

DO they even do ANYTHING them self , or is it all : donate , donate , donate devs are getting so fucking lazy with all those fundraising...jezz Clown 's

Wonder what excuse they have NeXT time they require always online shit

Well, for a game like this one, the excuse might be "it's an online-only game!"

Not very controversial for an online only game to require you to be online to play, imo. I get the diablo sentiment though, that was simply an act of DRM under the guise of being of some service to players. Glad that whole auction house thing worked out so well for them. If they would have spent 1/10 of the resources burnt on that towards making the game experience better, we might have decent PVP and other things that were promised, but never delivered.

You are right.

Yes, but SQ42 is episodic now, so if and when it ever gets delivered it'll be a decade before it's done at this rate. All the real time and money is going into the P2W online game.

Let's just ignore the most recent information from CIG that the first "episode" of Squadron 42 is going to be what most studios release as a full retail title in playable content. *eyeroll*

And, um, what P2W are you referring to? It's a skill based game, not an RPG loot/gear/stats based game. Nor is there anything like a War Thunder/World of Tanks ammo shop.

And, um, what P2W are you referring to?

What ever you believe , what ever you believe

Yeah, it makes sense for them to do it that way, but it's not great for the people who've played for several years, maybe bought craploads of gems, to be told that they're basically irrelevant and can't you please just go away/die already.


Yep it really sucks. I'm sad to see the subscription model for MMOs dying out because it's really the only model that allows a game to stay afloat without milking its customers for every penny or requiring huge influxes of new players. It also puts everyone on the same footing, more or less.
What about all those MMOs that charge a subscription AND offer microtransaction items? $15 for a month's play, oh and here's a new horse you can buy for $20 too. You really miss that model?


without milking its customers for every penny

And why do they do that....hmmm lets see...yep because you all buy all kinds of pixel to get your 5 min of fame in tha town....you can thank your self for that..peps are the reason why games are like they are today , so stop whining and accept that.

This is the first video I've seen about this game, and I have to say that I'm completely underwhelmed. The graphics style says "lowest common denominator" and the gameplay doesn't really bring anything new and exciting the to table.

For a company as cashed up as these guys are, I expect a lot more than this. It's like they don't have any decent artsy/graphicsy people at all, or that there's this one person overseeing everything and he only likes a particular style.


Lastly, FPS with a controller is cancer. Even when it's only a video.

Wow, where to begin.


2) The gameplay does plenty of new stuff. Each character is 1) Just because the presentation is stylized (as opposed to realistic) doesn't make it bad. It's actually very well done, particularly the character designs. Learn to separate your opinion from objective analysis. Just because you don't like something doesn't mean it's poorly done.
completely unique, with their own weapons and abilities. There aren't many shooters that do that. There's also a wide variety of projectile behavior, from hitscan to arcs to beams to AoEs. Again, not something you see in a lot of shooters these days.

3) This was played with MKB, not a gamepad. Note the MKB prompts and the quick and accurate camera movements.

You really should watch more videos before passing premature judgment.

I actually love these games and I'm a massive fan. I don't know why people hate on them considering there is such a drought for good city builder / supply chain games.

It's not hating, it's that I played every Anno game and I don't find them challenging anymore (Anno 2070 expansion added deep-sea wares and 3rd civ type, but challenging? More steps is not more challenging, just requires more space). To me just having supply lines is not a challenge. If you'd press me I'd name Factorio as the BETTER game in that regard. Because there your supply lines really are physical existing things. They can be damaged, interrupted... backlogs can clog your supply lines etc. (Ok, it's also not a city builder, rather it's a.. factory.. survival.. builder?)

Point being. This game series needs innovation at the core. Every Anno since earliest, example _> 1701 just reiterated and added some gimmick on top (in 1404 it was.. nothing, actually, just a rethread of 1701) (in 2070 it was the Ark) Ind deep blue it was.. I don't even know. Underwater.. stuff?

Heck, remember 2011? When they announced they shifted the series to modern industrial (and now to Sci-fi industrial) people were aghast. Because the core gameplay didn't change. It never actually even improved.

If you play Anno 2070 now as first game ever, within 2 minutes you would be right at home again in Anno 1404... is that "good" ? To me it's... just lazy game design.

It's actually really telling that the ONLY thing that ever even changed is the military.

Sure, the games have a certain first flair.. I won't deny that. I loved Anno 2070 for a time. I loved 1404, for a time. But once you dig deep into the mechanics you notice that it's the same game all over again. And 2205 really does look nearly identical to Anno 2070, remains to be seen whether "5 times larger islands" is really true btw. It's something they had claimed for Anno 2070 as well, except they meant "map size" not "island size"

To me it's... just lazy game design.

welcome to games anno 2015 Clown

Seriously... Fuck that tank shite. I'm so sick and tired of games basing their entire story and gameplay around one new dumb gadget of the protagonist. Imagine CDP showing off the crossbow in every fucking trailer like it's THE new addition everyone was waiting for -- tbh, that's exactly how pathetic and simple the AC fanbase is.

Fuck this tank shite. Sure, you'll need it to blast through main-quest walls. Sure, you'll need it to clear misc-quest areas occupied by a legion of Knight Tanks for bonus XP. Sure, the tank will have some cool entrees during cutscenes, saving your arse during impossible odds.... But fuck off using that shite as THE UNIQUE SELLING POINT of the new game. It's not. And if it is... I am disappointed. Allot.

welcome to 2015 this is how so called games are made today , and give it a Little plastic smoke from a railgun and peps sre running out buying a titan Card to enjoy it.... people are sooo easy
