It should be obvious for anyone with the reading comprehension skills of a first grader that I was talking about the Escapist's side when I said that it is hard to tell what might be true (you know, which allegations).
I've been a follower of this project from day numero uno with a citizen number under 10K, golden ticket and all that jazz.
I remember many of the promises and past statements very well and I know exactly when CR is lying or twisting facts and as I pointed out his retort is unfortunately full of lies, twisting, and weaseling out of questions (a fact that -amongst others here- jdreyer has also noted and articulated) .
I'm just trying to see your point, but I don't understand why Chris would need to lie or twist the facts so much if the allegations in the article were complete bullshit. If the allegations were completely untrue, why didn't he just tell the truth instead of making up more lies? If everything is going fine there wouldn't be any need for lies.
I don't know either. You'd have to ask CR why he chose lengthy replies with a lot of BS in them instead of just either ignoring the retarded "article" or writing up only a short, concise dismissal.
The entire blah-blah where he is lashing back at DS is simply unprofessional. Two wrongs don't make a right. Silly insults like DS could not make a good game even if he had $200m are not going to accomplish anything. CR and DS are poo-flinging monkeys.
The biggest bullshit claim -by far- in what CR said is that the PU was a stretch goal. The guy apparently doesn't even remember anymore what the original pitch of his own "vision" was. Ridiculous.
Or the part where he plays dumb and takes "commercial" literally claiming there hasn't been a ship commercial in over a year. Technically true but they have still put a lot of work into "commercials", events, reveals and so on (like flashy trailers advertising the game etc). That was a real snake oil response.
Or the character thing. Silly. He plays dumb again. Everyone knows that the character is not complete but a placeholder. He repeatedly said so himself.
jdreyer has also picked it apart further in a post somewhere below and one could continue taking it all apart further.
As I said, I find it genuinely unfortunate that CR is undermining his credibility with this BS retort. Seriously. I'm not one of those people who wants to see SC fail. I'm just a very concerned backer (pretty high level actually since I've had over $1K in the game early on... most of it recouped by profitable eBay sales in the meantime).
