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?

The time wasted on making playable releases for backers is just one of the nails in Star Citizans coughen.

Only a year? Bah. What an amateur complaint... . Some of us have been waiting almost a decade for that spiritual Wing Commander sequel.

I'm surprised it's still a game studio and not a registered religion... the faithful will follow demigod Roberts anywhere, and he's missing out on some BIG tax breaks.

Oh oh, looks like someone swallowed the red pill and is starting to understand the awful truth about it all. They better send out agents to subdue him.

It is absolutely bizarre they haven't been able to put out a game in all of this time. Good management would have frozen the game features at least a year ago (why not two years ago?) and then released a polished game. Then they could work on an expansion for these added things--which people would eagerly buy if the first game turned out well. Feature-creep can poison any game--poor management is to blame, imo. SC seems to be headed nowhere atm.

It is well known that I cannot err--and so, if you should happen across an error in anything I have written you can be absolutely sure that *I* did not write it!...;)

This game has been a shit show since he kept feature creeping it to death and then added the FPS mode that no one really wanted yet. What people wanted was a completed Space Combat Sim, and what we got were broken promises on top of even more broken promises. In the end result has been very lacking.

Wow, this scam is never going to end. Why the fuck would they ever even bother releasing Star Citizen, when they can make hundreds of millions by just working on it forever?

Is anyone besides fanatics even remotely surprised? My friend had his girlfriend by him a $250 ship for his birthday. That was 3 girlfriends ago. He has a wife and a two year old now.

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.

Oh yeah? That's awesome, I liked the actual gameplay of Everspace 1, just not the rogue-lite wannabe aspect of it. I have had Everspace 2 on my wishlist, I'll probably pick it up post retail release, unless there is a sale before then; but good to hear that it's coming along nicely!

I hope it's never finished.

The real game could never be as entertaining as watching the idiot fanboys cry.

Funny? I find it distressing that someone would ask another person to buy a $250 jpeg for them.

I find it more distressing that you think adults ASK for birthday presents Or celebrate getting older for that matter... because that is for SURE not something to celebrate ;p

Getting full immunization from Covid-19 (however long it might last), now THAT is grounds for celebration and gifts ;p

That said I still think I will need a historian to find my backer details once this ever releases.
