Op Ed

Massively Overpowered - Star Citizen is still worth the wait.
"Or we could be real and realize that Star Citizen was announced in October of 2012. Even if we use that as ground zero and ignore the fact that the game didn’t morph into the virtual world beast that it is today for several additional months, that was under three years ago. Can you name a triple-A MMOlike with Star Citizen’s feature set (even its early, trimmed-down feature set), and its visual fidelity that shipped in under three years?"

The official forums are the same. Censorship Central Inc.
Anything even remotely critical either gets locked immediately or swept under the Concern forums rug. Concern forum = trash box. None of the devs ever looks at it.
In General Chat where devs at least occasionally stop by they all want to live in shiny happy Christ Roberts Holyland.
Censoring would be removing such comments on sight. Instead they're placed in the relevant section of the forum. You still have topics being derailed for the same off-topic nonsense - controller balance, the game being a 'scam', etc. It takes a lot to be banned. Heck, there was a specific topic addressing lots of concerns just this week.

The mods over at Star Citizen Reddit have put me on some sort of 9 minute delay between posts. They're really in lock down mode. There shall be no dissent in Chairman Roberts' new universe order.
The mods on r/starcitizen are separate to CIG. In order to be restricted there you obviously stepped out of line, which isn't surprising given your posts here.

They did. Alex Mayberry. He left a few days ago. Probably for all the reasons people are thinking about: no stable model, to large in scope, a Studio head hell belt on delivering something cannot be done in the next 2 years, etc. etc...
People leave for all sorts of reasons. One of the co-founders of Valve left while developing Half-Life 2 because he wanted to build a boat and that game turned out fine. The difference here is that the comings and goings are very public. This sort of turnover if perfectly normal. In fact there have been numerous articles over the years about developers for other games not being credited because they left before the title was shipped.

CIG has poached people from Blizzard, like Darian Vorlick. They also poached a lot of staff from Crytek, both in Austin and Frankfurt. Overall CIG has hired more talented people than it has lost. But don't let reason get in the way of your rant.

i could see the complete open world MMO releasing in 2020.. thing is, it will be like the DNF release - so long overdue, so long hyped, with such a lack of actual game to back it up
Yawn. The game is already playable, the FPS is due out imminently and the social module not far behind. It's fair to assume that Squadron 42 will be delayed but even so we'll see that next year. As for the PU stuff, that might take a while longer but that's the most complicated component and even after release will be constantly iterated upon and improved.
