That said, I fully support anyone who isn't happy with the direction of the game in doing so. It's taking a lot longer than originally anticipated and not everyone is going to be happy with the direction of the game.
Let me add one bit to that, as an extremely early "former" KS backer myself, I believe most of the initial backers have already done as I have and requested a refund.
The people who are still in this mess are most likely the ones who want all of it. I wish them good luck, but if they were smart they would have gotten out when SC was still handing out refunds. They are dealing with a McDonalds that has ran this particular scam before and that sold a kid's meal burger that they claimed to be a Big Mac to Microsoft.
Personally I'm a huge fan of the direction that CIG is taking and being part of the iterative design process. The community has had an enormous impact shaping the game and it's always interesting watching the weekly videos and being able to meet the developers at events. Of course I have plenty of criticism of the game but that's to be expected.
