Yeah, well that's some bullshit. It's disingenious how they push this "verified but not really" angle. They aren't confident in their sources but they went to publication anyway. Until we hear something solid about it the shoddy behavior of the Escapist casts doubt on everything.

What the hell are you talking about? It's not "verified but not really." It's "not verifiable enough to be considered."

The Escapist: Posts a detailed account including what methods were done to talk to the sources, how and when they were contacted, and shed light on what they didn't consider to be trustworthy enough to go to press.

CIG: writes long letter saying "it's not true because we say so!"

The Escapist was completely confident and continues to be, and when challenged is still standing their ground on the article.

I'm interested in how CIG will deal with the consequences of the pledge system. Will CIG balance the game to protect the value of all these pledge assets? There is an enourmous amount of Q&A to be done between now and launch, including a lot of balancing. The problem is, the pledge ships have already been arranged in a sort of hierarchy based on what CIG imagines is their desirability. Potentially we could see a situation where your $125 dollar spaceship is very easily attained- market forces or balance reasons could even make it less valuable than a ship from a cheaper pledge tier. CIG are selling things whose ultimate value neither they nor their customers can predict- which is fine. That sort of thing happens all the time. The problem is that their pricing scheme implies a certain relative value that doesn't really exist. Caveat emptor I guess.

A possible way of avoiding this would be to establish price controls on the market for hulls, although that would be at the risk of smothering the player controlled aspect of ship production. They would have to adjust them taking into account the buying power of UEC, which I suspect is another thing CIG is going to be wringing their hands over.

The problem with being able to buy UEC directly with real money is that it creates a very large, unpredictable faucet that dumps money on the economy. Hyperinflation will be hard to avoid, and if prices don't move, balance will be hosed. If the prices of hull are entirely in the hands of players, then your pledge stuff could end up being $125 for something that can be earned in 4hrs of game time.

And I think it goes without saying, CIG is going to run into significant problems from the community when they try to balance pledge ships.

quote:

I digress. I did have a unique opportunity to sit down for lunch with a mod and pick his brain. It was also nice because both of us have friends on the development team and have been able to see behind the curtain. So, we were able to share some stories. Beyond that, (put on your tin foil hats, those who are paranoid) multiple members of CIG's dev team are goons and so are some of the mods . CIG is quite aware of the rules of SA, but they wish to use a different set, not that they aren't learning some hard lessons along the way.

quote:

Oh god, seems I have spent enough to have access to the concierge. So this is what being a space Romney feels like ?


quote:

Look, it's fine that CIG wants to increase funding via the sale of more ships. I just think this atmosphere of exclusivity they are cultivating for everything from the Super Hornet to the Idris-P is encouraging some very irresponsible behavior from their fanbase. I'm not aware of any other crowd funding projects where people spend student loan money or offer timeshares so they can pledge $1000 to the game.

The response: "Jesus Christ, check your privilege you loving sperg. All the ships will be available to everyone in the game regardless." and "Seriously, what the gently caress? Why are we (yet again) having to devote pages and pages of discussion frantically defending the game against a couple of people claiming CIG has some nefarious / incompetent intent behind everything and are trying to screw everyone? This is getting very old, and I'm tired of repeating exactly the same arguments from several pages ago."

I see a number of folks who have still been following the "development" of the game since the old threads and I'm wondering, do you remember the event/post when your opinion changed on this project?

Even more so when they flipped their ships on hapless fools who are probably still in this scam.

There isn't going to be a 'day' in 2 years where everyone finds out it was all smoke and mirrors and the internet cries out in agony. It'll either be death of a thousand cuts or a game that gets molded and improved to how we all want to play.
