Like a Bosh


I don't know why anyone would back star citizen maybe outside of that initial kickstarter money just to show viability. If he didn't get enough money from purely fan donations he would have gotten it from investors and publishers after proving the project had sufficient interest and actually would have to meet milestones to please them. Then you could pay for the game the same price every other video game is 60 bucks and get the same poo poo he is charging these dupes thousands of dollars.

Were these people so terrified that the game would cease to exist if they didn't spend their whole life savings on it (probably ensuring it actually never will exist now funny enough because now he can feature creep the game to death and have zero accountability.). Or do they think they are getting value from buying this ships with real cash because they think it will be pay to win?

Sorry if this has been answered a million times I don't want to read all 600+ pages of the old thread and more to catch up on this train wreck.

Dolvak is no longer moderator of /r/starcitizen NVM missread that or he just got added again, but some of his quotes are in star citizen without the moderator symbol.

I don't understand how reddit displays moderators.
Anyways still a moderator of r/starcitizen no longer a mod of /r/DerekSmart

If you do have an Idris, I would wait for the model to be released to wander around in before selling it, as I noticed the retaliator prices went crazy when that happened.


CIG will sell the Idris again if/when the Idris is released to the hangar.

To be fair, that quote is from the star citizen rant thread where everyone is required to type in all caps or be punished.

Reading the rest of that comment thread, he was responding to a question about no longer moderating /r/dereksmart.

Every non-lethal catapult launch is a triumph



I'm so unbelievably behind all of the recent happenings regarding drama and official forum sperging. Just reading about someone spending over $40,000 USD on fake ships made me want to gag. It makes me feel slightly better about only having pledged for a Hornet, but admittedly not by much.

However, by gleaming what I could just by skimming - it's apparent to me that some poo poo related to Derek Smart happened. Also, it seems that Beer was banned from the official CIG forums. Which I can only assume - was a blessing for Beer, because I don't know how people can post on the official forums and not want to drive nails into their faces as a more contemplative, and productive exercise.

Scarily enough, I do remember a time when the game was basically just something like four different ships and one single player campaign. What the gently caress happened?

Honestly, nothing I read in that article was particularly world-shattering.

It's obvious to any oldschool backer that once poo poo blew up with the continuous stretch goals in the early years, that we'd be getting a project with a shitload of promises and nary a hope on them delivering on all of them. Most people actually just wanted something that wasn't EvE in the Kickstarter stages of what is now something I'd class as a bloated abomination of the original idea.

I think there's plausibility in the bitter testimonials of those faceless former employees, but I also know to take this poo poo with a large helping of salt. When emotions, finances and jobs are on the line, things get said in the corporate grapevine that are hard to prove or disprove. I just wish they'd cut off the money-line and just say they'll stop peddling JPEGs at the annual sucker fair to just work on a game that might be released in my lifetime.

Don't be so gloomy. After all it's not that awful. Like the fella says, in Italy for thirty years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance.
