CIG Responds to Crytek Lawsuit

This pdf apparently represents Cloud Imperium Games' response to the report a few weeks ago that Crytek was suing them over terms of their agreement to use CryENGINE for Star Citizen (thanks reddit's Liudeius via DSOGaming). Their complaint included the fact that CIG had split the Star Citizen project into two games and that they were no longer displaying Crytek logos and notices as appropriate. The Cloud Imperium's position is laid out in their preliminary statement:
This action never should have been filed. The First Amended Complaint (“FAC”), like the initial complaint filed before it, sacrifices legal sufficiency for loud publicity. Though Crytek GmbH (“Crytek”) twice now conceals the actual Game License Agreement (“GLA”) from the Court and the press, the Court possesses the power to examine the incorporated GLA on this motion. The GLA eliminates virtually every claim and remedy Crytek seeks; Crytek’s admission that Defendants are not even using Crytek’s software gets rid of the rest. The allegations regarding Defendants’ co-founder Ortwin Freyermuth and another employee Carl Jones (the “Offending Allegations”), though modified in retreat by Crytek’s counsel after being confronted with a Rule 11 motion based on a false allegation contained in the initial complaint, still bear absolutely no material relation to any claim or named party, and have everything to do with generating misleading, scandalous press. Neither of Crytek’s two contrived claims can survive the contract, and all its remedies are contractually barred, justifying dismissal as a matter of law. The Court also should send a message to Crytek by striking the immaterial, impertinent and scandalous Offending Allegations in paragraph 15 of the FAC.

I can't hear the sound of this loading screen lawsuit over the sound of me playing star citizen for hours this weekend

It was a slideshow for me. What's your system?

I haven't played it overly much, but I've found that the game is more CPU than GPU limited right now. I have a core i7 from a few years ago, and a 1060gtx, and I get around 20-30 FPS much of the time IF I set the game to high graphics. If I try to put it to low, my FPS drops to slideshow levels.

Hope that helps!
