They have time to produce a rather unfunny Top Gear spoof? Seems really far from what a space combat game should be about.

Classy.

Ridiculous. The racing mode should be one of the last things to be put in the game after Squadron 42 and most of the PU are up and running and stable. But they've long lost any sense of priorities. The only priority left is "what can we finish half-assed in a hurry and turn into another sale"?

Fuck these guys now.

So, while BHVR is making PU, and Fundry is making SQ42. all remaining studios should laid back anf wait?

What? Dude. Priorities. It ain't that hard is it? With the exception of Foundry 42 (= Squadron 42) they should all be working on basic persistent universe content and not adding a fluff feature like a racing mode to the alpha of Arena Commander just to have another sale opportunity.
Besides, you have obviously not read many studio reports. Do it. Read them.
It's not like Foundry 42 is really knee-deep into work on Squadron 42. They are constantly distracted and have to help out preparing marketing stuff for Gamescom, patching Arena Commander and lots of other crap instead of a clear focus on Squadron 42.
I'm not making this up. Read the reports.

It's very concerning how the focus has clearly totally shifted to "exciting" reveals, Gamescom, PAX North/East/West/South/Whatever, the next round of variant sales, brochures, commercials and anything and everything that can be monetized. All studios were somehow involved in the Gamescom reveal for example instead of doing their actual work on the game. The very definition of publisher poison is lingering over this project. If you read up on failed game projects you will often find devs complaining that they could never get shit done because the publisher demanded a demo here, a reveal there and marketing material for the next big event around the corner.
That is exactly what Chris Roberts is doing here with his studios. He is abusing them just to create more hype and to extract even more money from the masses.

If not outright failure, the least to expect is massive delays. I mean we're already there. Originally the whole game or at least Squadron 42 and the PU alpha was supposed to launch in Q4/2014 and we are not even close to making anything of that sort in 2014.

The whole monetization and moving from one sale to the next only disgusts me anymore.

The racing mode FFS... in the early days there were silent whispers about there maybe being a racing mode in the game at one point. And what now? Now it's all of a sudden become a priority feature when they realized that a) it'd be fairly easy (just a few weeks work) to put in
Arena Commander and more importantly b) to couple it with a new round of long overdue (haha) SALES.

I've enacted nomenclature for your condition. We now call your type the "CIG cash grab fanatics". I've also created a symbol you can identify yourself to other fanatics with, here it is "$C".

Good. And I refer to people like you simply as gullible sucker.

I'll paste something here from the SC forums that I think is fitting, and hilarious. Enjoy.

I've pledged just shy of $900 now, I'm supporting the tears of all the "CIG is a cash grab" fanatics.

I plan to burn my hangar including all my ships to the ground when the PU goes live, and start over at rock bottom, chained for years in servitude to an anti gravity serving cart, handing out a variety of frosty beverages bearing not one, but two drink parasols, each rendered harmless on their pointy end by a random surprise fruit item of my choosing, aboard the luxurious decks of an 890jump.

I will be surrounded in luxury and wonders of technology only made possible by the generous donations of the long forgotten record breaking "kick start humanity to space" campaign that ignited the spark enabling the everyday person"s dream of traveling the stars.

I shall never be happy. Many a traveler will pass me by, appreciative of the offerings displayed atop my tiny tasty drink laden prison to which I'm chained.

I frown equally, at each in disdain, as I push along my drink cart, muttering in vain, "it's a scam".

I just got done playing for a couple hours.
I gotta say I'm damn impressed. Been playing with the Warthot HOTAS and shit, the feeling of flying around that race course is pretty fucking amazing.
I had never played any flying games before, this being my first HOTAS experience, I gotta say I'm loving it.

After getting the hang of flying the ship through the race course, I loaded up the waves of AI. got to level wave 7. had a blast.

I gotta admit, I now have pretty high hopes for this game being good. Hell at this early stage, having that racing course really helped learning the flight model and it's damn fun.

ahahahah nice try, racing around a course couldn't be more different than dogfighting. This is bullshit.

You're either just a jackass or ignorant of the game, the flight model int he game is pretty complicated and learning to maintain speed while turning is super valuable.

The Racing mode is actually a really valuable feature, it makes it easier you learn how to efficiently fly the ships.

EDIT: It's also not a direct competitor to the 300i.

Well the video sure implies that.


The video is an in world advertisement for the ship, it's not meant to be informative. The 300i is a highly modifiable exploration ship. The M50 is pure racer.

Don't forget to buy a new hanger to park your $140 350R racer in.
A steal at only $50 each. Why not buy them all. And since many ships now don't come with jump drives you better by a few when they become available.

Lol! Nice one. Oh man, you can just feel the burn coming off of this scam, er, game.
