The best thing is none of us even has to do anything Chris Roberts is doing all the hard work of trolling his own most loyal fans to their faces when he says things like i'm not going to give you guys dates anymore.

I really want to be the fly on the wall for that one. Did they plan for their fans to be happy with that?

Because the thought process you have to follow to get to this conclussion is insane.

"We have basically nothing to show them, but thankfully we can actually and realistically expect them to be happy if we tell them that we won't do anything anymore."

Because they couldn't have just walked up there and hoped for the best. No, they realize that their fanbase is a full on cult at the moment. It's insane.

e: And they are actually using that to their advantage.

I'm pretty sure all they needed to do was put a few employees in the crowd and have them start clapping and the rest would just follow. What else could they do even if they where not happy about it boo their own hero in front of a crowd that would be extremely hostile to that kinda thing? Maybe I am giving them too much credit though.

Yeah, and if it was just in the junior ranks, it wouldn't raise an eyebrow. It is, however, a bad sign when you do see a high turnover of senior management on a project like this that isn't even finished yet. Just saying "Yeah well companies have turnover, it happens" doesn't really apply here, these aren't just random code monkeys or artists that are leaving.

Of course, Star Cultists will just brush it off with "They just didn't truly believe in Star Citizen/it happens/they didn't really fit the team/etc." but for a lot of companies, it's a major point of concern when you can't retain your senior managers and have to constantly rehire new people to fill those roles.

One site claims the sky is falling and the other side claims eveything is Ok. Judging from my work epxerience: It highly depends if you can replace the work and the input a certain person provided. And to believe that turnover in "normal companies" only happens in jthe junior ranks, is naive at best. But anyway it would be better if staff wouldn't get fired or leave. The turnover rates in this buisness field is too high anwywas.


I just want to add that the mere position of someone doesn't tell you much about their impact on the project.
James was "only" a community manager but he sure did more for the community than Ben. But even if Ben and James would have been fired, the overall impact on the project would have been not measurable.

My take on this is: We can't change it anyway and so I'll take a seat and enjoy the entertainment.

Like he has to know this is happening right? Like i'm not saying it's his fault that these people are being taken advantage of if it wasn't him i'm sure they would find some other celebrity to do it.
