One thing that has been confusing me is a few of you complained that So-and-So nerfed or hosed over the Cutlass.

The Cutlass issue is, at this point, one of the more concrete examples of vision failing to survive a ham fisted attempt at execution, the manner in which CIG responded to that failure and their dismissal of ensuing criticism. The tragedy is that it's a rather substantial parallel for Star Citizen as a whole, down to the core of sincerely decent people who still continue to put genuine effort into making an attempt to provide earnest feedback in the hopes of providing a means for things to turn out allright.

e, I mean. I could go on and on about the Cutlass. But that's the core. CIG sold something amazing, pushed something poo poo out the door to make a sale, disparaged the feedback to the obvious poop and spent the next year making GBS threads on the people who levied criticism.

CIG is too deep into sunk cost to realize that all that code debt is going to keep blowing up in their faces whenever they try to implement a new system. But I get the feeling that they know that switching to another solution wont do them any good this late in the game.

Compounded by CIG paying their bills by taking out one engineering debt loan after another by promising that ships upon ships will be made one day.

On the other hand I would challenge anyone here to convince a population of people that it's not only extremely difficult to get cryengine to function as an FPS but that they should give you yet more money to help you succeed.

Extra challenge mode in convincing everyone that a compelling talking point is your inability to get aiming reticules to work, which is why you're half a year late on fulfilling a revised schedule which is also late.

https://www.reddit.com/user/Accelerwraith was banned from /r/starcitizen_trades not /r/starcitizen. Permabans from there are usually permanent and bans do not carry over to /r/starcitizen.
The context of that post was that people were utterly outraged that someone would buy a limited ship like the jav and then sell it for profit. The sheer outrage and fury that you would deny a true believer a ship was seen as scalping and so attracted the rage and ire of the loyalists.
The outrage of that particular citizen was such that he wished death on the one that did it.

What wording are you using to initiate this? Any surprises with CS trying to dissuade you?

Please keep in mind that I am a barely functioning idiot and so the course I followed should be considered a guideline at best.

Initial email

quote:

Good afternoon.

I am requesting a full refund.

Thank you.

They then ask me to blame the escapist or Smart. To both parties I imagine I owe my refund, in one way or another. My response:

quote:

Good afternoon.

I am confirming that I would like my account refunded and closed.

My decision is not motivated by any press or media communication but rather one of project scope. The game has grown beyond the scope of what was described when I first backed. The growth has almost entirely consisted of aspects brought up after the fact and, as a result, multiple delays that have pushed the expected delivery date far beyond what was originally promised.

I hope that this reasoning assists you with your record keeping and I thank you in advance for your timely response to this message.

You may issue the value of the pledges in my account care of paypal via the email associated with this account. If an alternative route of reimbursement is required I'll seek to accommodate.

Thank you.

Everything else that was exchanged were variations of "Hello where are we with this" and "Yes, cancel everything give me my money, no I do not care if I cannot use this account to post on your forum."

Mostly it was just a lot of waiting. Mentioning chargebacks will probably shorten your wait. I didn't do that. CS never attempted to convince me to not request a refund, as they have others. I can't imagine anyone was sorry to see me go.

That was a lot of words I am sorry everyone.
