This letter pretty much explains all the problems with Star Citizen.

I truly feel bad for anyone who has to work in a place like that. I'm assuming their future employers are going to look at Star Citizen and roll their eyes. If it is this bad, these devs are hosed whether they walk or stay - and I doubt CIG has fostered any kind of long term employment goals for its employees.

I was watching Fart Shitizen off and on from 2012 to 2014, holding off on building a gaming rig for it and never bought any ships. I got married and bought a couple watches to go with my $20 wedding ring with the money I would have spent on a decent gaming pc. My interest was reignited by all the drama that was bubbling up since the summer. I've been lurking for a while on the old thread, after seeing an @dsmart tweet with a link to it, and today's drama finally pushed me over the edge. The old thread and its baby are the most entertaining threads I've ever read on a forum. Here is my goddamn :10bux:

Not quite hypocrite. I was simply making a joke which was not received well and then when I was in the middle of explaining with a preparation to apologize I was being talked over. When I realized I was dealing with child like maturity. I excused myself since it was time for me to go work out.

Just because Dick Wulf harassed you and your friend doesn't give you permission to be an rear end in a top hat. It's sad that it happened but it's not a license to be a shithead.


As for me not having tact and being an educator? I at least let people finish their sentences before talking over them with bullshit. This is SA not the loving Region ESC where I am dealing with professionals or my students.


I am a dork? Absolutely. I don't really have fucks to give about it. I don't spend my freetime at conventions for games that don't exist and I sure as hell don't spend 1000s of dollars on JPEGS. If you go back and check I've absolutely admitted to spending 182 which I don't need a refund for because I basically expected that money to be flushed down the toilet I made a bet and lost.. At this point I am here for the tears of redditors, dick wulf, and the brown sea at the expense of Derek Smart's retainer lawyers. So far money well spent CARRY ON GOONS :D

For those who are just tuning in, Slavik used to be a mod with pretty obvious anti-goon bias. The reason for this we think is because he lost the equivalent of about US$500 of stuff in EVE Online to Warr Akini of Goonswarm's Ministry of Love. Here is Slavik's lossmail. We know that is him because it is exactly the same player name (K89Slavik) as their Skype handle which they advertised in their RSI signature block. We heard via various sources that he claimed to have sold the character, but that just wasn't true because you have to be in an NPC run corporation in EVE to be able to transfer the character, based on the timeline and their character history, it couldn't have been sold.

There is one simple thing for me.

If it turns out CIG executives have been buying first class plane tickets using backer funds I would be very disappointed.

I can understand flying business class or premium economy and then upgrading with their own money to first class.



A business ticket on American Airlines/British Airways from LAX to LHR is $4,500 on average. That's just the upgrade price from economy, btw.

I went and dug around on double decker planes flying international routes. It seems like the majority reserve upstairs for Business Class and First Class.

I'm not saying it's impossible Sandi was telling the truth. Just that I was already laughing when Thomad made his comment and before Sandi finished her retort, simply because the first thing that popped into my mind was "Well of course she flew first class!"

(I'm sorry, Sandi, if I'm judging you unfairly...)

Just want to point out, to be completely fair, that A380 used by most British Airways UK bound flights from US have a lot of economy seats upstairs.

https://www.reddit.com/r/starcitizen/comments/3r7rrm/can_i_just_say_something_about_illfonic/

Hey retards: it's because the branch they developed their part on was different than the branch CIG was converting to 64 bit, and the two couldn't be merged without starting 100% from scratch. Illfonic made a perfectly serviceable game, but because of mismanagement from CIG it couldn't be used.

And guess what happened? FPS stuff was started again from scratch. That's why it was delayed indefinitely, they realized they had to completely redo it and it wasn't because it was Illfonic's fault.

Agreed 100% I used to share the sentiment that Illfonic was to blame for dropping the ball, then listened to that Beyond The Horizon (Oct 17) podcast where DS touched on this. It blew my mind how easily people get brain washed into believing CIG's development problems are anyone's fault besides CIG and CIG certainly hasn't done the ethical thing by coming clean and stating the obvious in this respect to at least wipe clean the massive poo poo stain they left on Illfonic's integrity as a company. Regardless of Illfonic's reputation preceding Star Marine, they have released their games and absolutely don't deserve some of the poo poo critics that are delusional Star Citizen fanatics.

What is the worse that would happen by simply coming out and saying "We're apologizing to Illfonic for immersing them in a frustrating scenario for which we've decided as a company and on behalf of the backers and Illfonic to part ways and keep development in house so they can work on other things"?. Now it only appears anybody who touches this project is going to get burned, and it's Hollywood all over again for CR.
