It kinda is a thing, since they don't have to file a response at all at this point, as has been pointed out.

I just wanna see it for giggles. I don't care if derek managed to be right about something or not.

Seeing the :reddit: hive try and make it seem like its another failure could be entertaining too, if you don't mind brain damage.

The best thing about Star Citizen is the game that already does everything it wants to do and more (minus the walking around thing that nobody likes from X series), is that itís already boring as gently caress now.

It will take SC at least another 5-10 years before people realize the core mechanics are of poor design and also boring as gently caress.

The future of SC is boredom.

Unfortunately, much like the heat death of the universe, SC's fun death will be long and drawn out. I'm sure there will be a core of believers outraged the day the last server if finally shutdown.

I want to say they announced something akin to power armor a long while back. Early Star Marine days.

Not sure if that has been lost to time or the avalanche of bullshit videos.

Indeed they did, friend



I wouldn't be surprised to see them sell a legit "battlemech" though. I could see CIG doing something on the bigger side of the power armor spectrum to compare with their big stupid loving tank. Probably aren't gonna see any 100 ton assault mechs roaming around but I could totally see them offering a mech big enough to have a legit cockpit, if someone puts the MW5 videos in front of Chris.

I remember backers unironically suggesting that Star Citizen should install malware on your PC that would prevent you from playing if it detected that you were using discord or Skype or something, so you're really not far off.

Even though they flat out stated there would be no mechs many moons ago I can see it happening. But to disagree, it will be twice the size of an Atlas and have a shitter.

The problem is that the youtube lawyer has set Citizen expectations so high that if the reply is extensive and damaging there is going to be major angst as Citizens try to refactor their dreams. 3.0 is a dud, it's so bad that I can't even be bothered reading the issue tracker, so much crap there, this Crytek response should provide a lot of laughs, if it's as devastating as I expect it to be.

I can assure you that when it drops, they're going to have to refactor their brains.

Because I have credible sources, I can safely say that it's as absolutely loving hilarious as it is disastrous for RSI/CIG. And it's coming tomorrow.

I think backers are going to be walking off cliffs when they read the brutal take down of Ortwin over his conflict of interest. Or how they completely shred CIG for their attempt at re-defining the intent of the word "exclusive" as used in 2.1.2. They called it "absurd", and I hear that at least one sentence had the word "nonsense" (a Derek Smart trademark) in it. :D

Tomorrow can't come soon enough, and I have Pacer in an auto-refresh tab already. :grin:

Someone should tell MoMa.

Cultists, when presented incontrovertible evidence that the game is indeed poo poo, cover their eyes and scream they can't hear you over the awesome gameplay of single digit frame rates and tedium made manifest.

It will be no stretch of the imagination that a technical document for a specialty audience will be incorrectly dissected by this same crowd. These people willfully misinterpret the most basic stimuli, so a memo that usually causes reasonable peoples' eyes to glaze over will of course be utterly misconstrued to fit their world view.
