Old rumours, interesting to look back on now.

If true, she probably did him a favour getting him out back then. To make it clear, this is when they decided to shut Austin, Wingman was the head there and that's why so many jumped ship with him.

I gravitated towards the Greens, eventually even joining the party itself.

The Linke is a party I grudgingly accept exists, but I've learned enough about DDR-history I can't bring myself to trust a party that was once the SED, a party leading the corrupt state apparatus ...

I looked into my crystal ball and it claims the game will be coming out at the end of the next decamillenium. So I don't think you should trust that source, it looks fishy.

This is so gross I need to take a shower after reading this. I wonder if Lesnick even knew though maybe Roberts just told him everything will be fine don't worry about it leave the financial stuff for me to worry about and he just trusted his hero like every other dupe out there is doing and only after they laid everyone off he is starting to see the cracks in the facade. I could really see Roberts being the only guy at CIG who actually has an idea of what all the moving parts are doing / look like and everyone else being in the dark and just have to take his word on everything.

The lesson from this is that the more :lesnick: is sure on something, the more likely he is to be completely wrong 1 year later. There's absolutely no reason to believe anything they say.

Guys, guys, I figured out CIG time. They kept saying "two weeks", which is 14 days.

Now, after 4 years of development, they're saying "around 10 days". Star Citizen is releasing November 2025.

We already discussed that. But I am curious, given your enthusiasm, if you can clarify what "Full product in a year" specifically refers to?

1 - Squadron 42 (If this- is it the commercial release? If yes, is it the first chapter of missions? All missions?)
2 - The Persistent Universe (If this, will it include all ships thusfar sold, 100 Star Systems, 4 alien languages, space pets, and everything else listed in Stretch Goals? How many players will be supported per instance?)
3 - The full commercial release of Star Citizen (Both of the above?)

If you know, please confirm. If you don't, that's okay-- but then what exactly are you excited about?



I'm going to guess the answers to these based on what we've seen so far.

1) Probably only by next year and only the "first chapter". Whatever that means. It was implied early on they'd release this episodically. Rather like Half-Life.

2) I'd wager next year in limited degrees, with far less than 100 systems, no languages or pets (or any other goals) and probably hard limit to 30-40 players per instance based on their projections so far - the servers would probably melt if they tried any more than that. They really need to learn from CCP about how to develop this sort of thing (I honestly never thought I'd actually type a sentence like that, but there we go).

3) This will be whatever CR defines it was, which will almost certainly be a combination of the above two, to "successfully" launch based on a technicality. As to the rest of the stretch goals, if those come out at all before it falls apart due to the finances as predicted by Dr Smart, they'll be the barest shadow of what fans have hyped them to be. If that.


I'm mildly impressed that the 2.0 might be released in a week based on the bug list provided. Well, sort of. But I doubt it will pan out that way. More likely we'll see slippage again.

It is also insane the amount of star citizen related junk they are selling anything they can slap a logo on I me I guess it doesn't take a lot of work probably 1 artist could do it all as a full time job and just keep raking in all the money the cultist spend on it.

Is anyone expecting 2.0 to be anything but a minor list of bug fixes and maybe a few shinies to keep everyone complacent?

They will release it along with a long-winded speech from either CR himself, about how they never promised anything and we should all be as super happy as they all are to get a chance at play testing this special piece of gaming history.

Or basically this video but verbalized by :lesnick:

I'm actually leaning the other direction: they're gonna push out all of these major features (multicrew, new levels, ship/FPS transitions) that they were showing at citizencon. BUT it'll be a hot mess of bugs and jank, some of the features will only be partial implementations of things they hypes up. For example, the "baby PU" will turn out to be a static zone with zero real indications of persistence or universe.

Nevertheless the display of "progress" will solidify the faithful -- it won't matter that it's unplayable as long as it gives them something concrete to talk about. And the fact that it took a year of nothing but ship sales to get it won't even enter their heads.

But it won't make a ton of money, because SC has mostly exhausted the easy money at this point. Earlier someone observed that CIG can make $2-3 million any time they have a big event like citcon, but that kind of thing can't repeat forever.

Not really, you give your twitter account that has the same username as the RSI account. The fact you think it was difficult given that you "fans" all post the same poo poo, in same places and have a twitter social club going to defend your "investment" is pretty weird tbh

Honestly giving 10 days as a time frame for 2.0 is pretty smart

If they deliver something at all, cultists will eat that poo poo up no matter how badly it is parped up

If they miss the date, well, game development is hard guys buy more jpgs

Meanwhile over the next two weeks everyone who isn't insane will be playing actual game releases, including but not limited to:

CoD : Blops 3
Fallout 4
Rise of the Tomb Raider
Star Wars Battlefront
Starcraft 2: LotV
FFXIV 3.1 patch
