Star Citizen Not Experiencing Experience Initiatives

A post on the Star Citizen Forums complains that it's been over a year since a Letter from the Chairman promised upcoming "experience" initiatives to enhance the functionality in the crowdfunded space game (thanks Derek). Noting Chris Roberts stated "but if we just took the time to finish the existing professions and polish them, Star Citizen would have no rival," the post points out that things have gone in the wrong direction since this commitment:
I'm quite frankly surprised that we never heard this mentioned again. Neither in ISC, SCL, or in any articles on the website. I would have thought this would have been the buzzword for 2021 after that letter.

The fact is, that SC is now a worse experience than since Oct 10th 2020.

  • There are more game-breaking bugs than ever.
  • The general server performance is worse than ever.
  • All gameplay loops are same state as Oct 2020 or in even worse condition (trading/mining as an example)

Is it time to postpone a patch and spend full time all man hours for 1 quarter to make the game playable and enjoyable?

For many years I despaired at the sad state of the space sim genre. It is a truly cursed genre. Star Citizen is an abomination and Elite: Dangerous isn't much better. There weren't any other serious efforts and indie titles were invariably crap.

Then Star Wars: Squadrons came along and, while it left much to be desired, it was still the best space sim in ages.

Then came Everspace 2. I tried the new demo linked here a little while ago and was really surprised. It's fun! A fun space sim? Beautiful, with polished mechanics and an interesting story? I must be dreaming. I immediately plonked down the $$$ and burned through all of the content available so far in the EA version. Looking forward to what comes next.
