Hey, I thought it was funny. I mean I can't know for sure obviously, but I think there's a high probability that you are the German RSI crazy person, the German reddit crazy person and the current SA crazy person. Considering you all post the same poo poo, archive SA posts and appear to be crazy, you're from Germany right?

Problem I have is that if you are, then you've already lied about spending $0 on Star Citizen, so I won't believe a denial. So be a pal and confirm it because that's the only way I'll doubt it.

Hey "Karl" serious question. What would it take for you to stop believing in star citizen? Like, a refund-me-right-now-this-is-too-hosed-up level of lost belief?

Look there is no proof you can provide that a brainwashed person won't immediately denounce as incorrect, misinformed, or all-out lies, all while claiming to remain unbiased.

http://www.compensationforce.com/2015/03/2014-turnover-rates-by-industry.html

roughly 15 % for the whole industry on a yearly basis.

Computer game industry.

Go figure yourself, I would be impressed if you can up with a rough estimate what would be normal for CIG's employment turnover. Keep in mind CIG was a start up and they pay less than average.
And don't forget we are at least 4 years in production according to our mighty internet warlord.

Turnover is extremely varied during production cycles in video games. You get very large fluctuation in staff numbers at the beginning and end of projects as people get mass hired and laid off as they are no longer required.

What you don't usually see is a gradual and constant bleeding of top level employees such as producers, executives and other senior staff throughout the project. These people are generally there from the start and may move on as the project nears the end.

Taking on new senior staff in the middle of a project is going to be a major burden no matter how you cut it.

Over the course of the next month, basically everything that DS alleged that could be proven, was proven, mostly relating to firings and internal behavior. CIG's responses grew increasingly weird and erratic. They went from ignoring him to banning/refunding him to summarily firing "Traitors" to threatening a journalist who covered some of this with legal action. Not making this up. His campaign did get them to begrudgingly open up the refund gates though, and everyone in this thread who still had any money in the game promptly got it out. This all culminated in a ludicrous "Citizen Con" event where they basically got up on stage and revealed that they had gently caress-all to show for the last year's worth of development- then Chris Roberts spit on a cake, cut it up and served it to people while the attendees sang happy birthday. Still not making this up.
This was the most important thing. Me: never backed Star Citizen, was never interested. But CIG's overreaction to Derek Smart set off all the red alert sirens. You had to have been in the thread to witness it. Chris Roberts posted a stream-of-consciousness letter attacking Derek Smart and The Escapist, which is one of the goddamned craziest things I've seen a company CEO do. Then there was the aforementioned "Citizen Con" event and what you said.

Now Derek is promising Armageddon. Is he talking out of his rear end? Will he soon be proven right? Stay tuned in this thread to find out!
