Give us some loving examples of why CIG having money in reserve is bad business practice, even if it's in German. German speaking goons can at least translate it for us. Otherwise you're just a walking joke, who refutes everything with "You are wrong because I say you are wrong."

I don't disagree that having 94 million dollars "just lay around" is a bad idea, when you could be making interest off it, instead of having inflation slowly eat it up. At that kind of money, the difference between the two can easily be >10 million dollars in 3 years.

Supposedly, they're spending money on the game, though, so :shrug:

Oh, they'd easily be getting some interest off it, unless the majority of backer money is in a big cash pool that Croberts likes to go bathing in now and then (which would be pretty gross).

Interest & inflation have both been close to zero for the last 5 years. Sure, when you've got millions you get access to better investment returns than my local bank, but you can't take any kind of risk with it. "We lost a bunch of backer money in out stocks & bonds portfolio, oops."

(Not that it matters all that much in this case, I don't think there would be that much difference in results if Croberts threw a couple million on red in vegas.)

So what happens now that the project has passed $2,500,000? Will we add additional funding goals and make the game even larger in scope?

No.

As we said in our first Live Stream Twitch Q&A session, after Stage 4 is unlocked, additional funding will go towards polishing the features and content we’ve already committed to. After that, any additional funds will go toward funding a Post-Launch Live Team that will continue developing additional features and content.

This is the kind of pathetic person who gets their rear end kicked and is mocked mercilessly in school for ratting others out to the teachers and then cries and whimpers "but I don't understand why everyone is mean to me".
The only reason pathetic losers like that can safely gloat is because a) they cowardly hide on the internet and b) going to their house and smashing their teeth in is a punishable offence for some reason.

Or wife or brother-in-law, that's right Star Citizen is doing so well that Karl pretends to be four different people to defend it.

Karl some internet security tips:-
1. Using the same username + year it was registered is not a good plan if you want to deceive people, it's not exactly the enigma code.
2. Putting your full date of birth every"loving"where, including writing it in a text field when you don't have to, is not that bright either.

If I was you I'd go delete that reddit account before Derek has some time free and sees the German legal system as a new challenge.

Eh, I'm well beyond the age where I have to worry about whether or not the things I like are cool, so I just roll with it. Besides, all my friends are into black metal, so there's not a lot of "Swiftie" jokes I haven't heard already.

It was kind of funny though, there was a cowboy hat wearing dadbro sitting in the row in front of us and after the show was over he turned to my girlfriend and me and said something like "I gotta give you credit, I thought I was gonna be the only guy here who knew any of the words," and sort of shrugged in the direction of his daughters. When I told him I was the reason we were there he looked at me funny and then said "Hey man, good for you. Whatever floats your boat."

Hey Karl did you get a refund yet? You can still spend your money in the game once it launches so it's really only insulating yourself from potential failure with no downside.

Also it means you can discuss this game sensibly without being massively emotionally invested in its success and having said success directly tied to you not being a dumb.

Good all round really, set yourself free!

Yeah there was a little pause where he scrunched up his nose all funny and you could almost see him readjusting his worldview to allow for the existence of dudes like me. Admittedly he was super cool about it, I half expected him to call me a homo or something. Florida rednecks aren't exactly the most accepting type.

And I mean I totally get it too. I'm an adult male belting out Taylor Swift lyrics in an audience that had to have been at least 85% made up of 13 year old girls. I very much felt like a fish out of water, and probably would have looked at me a little funny if I was him, too. But I'm really glad I was brave enough to go, the concert was unreal. They gave everybody these wristbands as we walked in, but didn't tell us what they were for, so we assumed they were some sort of tracking thing to keep us out of the parts of the stadium we weren't allowed to go in or something. It turns out they all had LEDs in them and they were programmed to the music or something, so the very first time the bass hit the entire stadium of like 55,000 people lit up in this huge light show. It was really cool.
