I'm not really a fan of the plan they proposed, and I'm glad they've changed it. That said, if you read the other posts, you'd see that the screw ups and streaming errors were some of the things they were trying to correct with that money (right or wrong) by getting a professional film and streaming crew rather than doing it in house.
It's not a great excuse, but it's something. As for the rest... eh, I feel like you're just fired up about something. There's a lot of "how dare they" and "who do they think they are" in there, which makes it sound like they were killing your dog. I mean... they were going to put the streams up for free as high def youtube videos afterwards anyway. This was just for the livestreaming itself, so it's not like anyone was going to miss out. The youtube numbers dwarf the livestream numbers by a massive amount. So not paying, you would have missed out on literally nothing but whatever rewards they were offering.
In short, grab a nap or something, grumpasaurus.
I stopped watching most SC content around 2015 when the amount of lies became unbearable and when it became clear as day that pledge money was wasted for the sole purpose of creating fancy trailers and demos to extort more monies from the tards instead of developing the actual game.
The face of the cult leader on screen makes me want to vomit. When he opens his lying tard mouth I wanna puke like Monty Python's Mr. Creosote
I never had any intention to watch their shitshow of MOAR LIES anyway. My issue with the monetization of the stream is not personal but principle-based. The principle is fucking retarded. Why pay money for watching a marketing event? Why pay money to be showered with advertising?
It doesn't get much dumber than that... except when you get showered with PAID advertising for a game that ain't even anywhere close to finished yet but has raised nearly $200 million in crowdfunding money. It's a pure money grab by greedy assholes. There is nothing to justify that crap. It is plain fucking robbery.
