I love these guys coming in promising to be back in 2 years to lap up all the backers tears. We could be dog fighting within the next month or two and that will evolve over the next two years. Also, new things will be added during that time, which we've already seen the first few step of.

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.

Not sure my Avenger and Freelancer made it onto the fleet tracker btw?

I've been watching this game from the original pitch on kickstarter, having always loved space games and having many fond memories of playing wing commander as a kid. I got super excited about the potential and scope of the project, and have been following the newsletters and whatnot that have been coming out for the past several years. I also have given them zero goddamn dollars but I feel the amount of entertainment I've received is more than the game could possibly have delivered. Thank you Star Citizen, and all of you star citizens out there.

For me personally, it's the scope. The scope was incredibly ambitious for something that was developed by a major studio, but that's not crazy warning signs by itself. Roberts is a Peter Molyneaux style of game creator, so it's a given that most of the promised stuff won't see the light of day in any recognisable form. But it was a new Wing Commander with a MMO Freelancer/Privateer game built in the same engine with shared assets etc, not beyond the scope of a major AAA title.

The first warning was decoupling from a major studio and going self funding. Without a publisher backing, the loss is not just deep pockets, but the complete loss of all institutional experience of actually getting a project out the door. I don't know how much major project experience anyone here has, but in my experience the design and engineering team will never turn around and say "It's done". Ever. It's actually an incredibly specialised job to be able to assess a large project and make the call of when to ship it to site/fabrication/whatever. It generally requires a team of specialists to do so, something that it's incredibly unlikely that Chris Roberts has in any proven capacity.

In addition, without any real checks or balances on Chris Robert's vision, the scope appears to be like a gas in a vacuum, trying to fill all the available space. If your ideas man is the guy in charge of everything, you have real problems in almost any major project with respect to time, budget and quality. Vision remains top notch though!

If I seem completely cynical, it's that I've seen this dance before, except now it's mixed with some incredibly blatant cash grabs with the ship sales. We are not even buying artwork now?

Man, I remember just being excited to have some kind of creative outlet. The first piece of art I did regarding SC was appropriately enough about the irrational exuberance of goons spending money on a spaceship jpeg that didn't even have a jpeg yet.

I have to say, it was REALLY loving TEMPTING.

But I have a short attention span and I didn't want to promise something in case I got sick of doing it / couldn't finish for whatever reason. Now if I flake, all you'll ever have is "Wasn't that one goon working on a video game? What was his name?"
