You clearly don't understand game development
Since 3.0 lite's first schedule report on April 14th, the projected release date has been moved back from June 29th to (between July 6th and) July 20th.

Five weeks in and they're already one-to-three weeks behind (most likely three). That's impressive planning, even for CIG. :laffo:

If they continue at this spectacular production rate of five weeks forward, three weeks back:
  • By June 23rd, release pushed back to August 10th
  • By July 28th, release pushed back to August 31st
  • By September 1st, release pushed back to September 21st
  • By October 6th, release pushed back to October 12th
:toot: Star Citizen: 3.0 lite in time for CitizenCon :toot:

3.2 (3.0 full-fat, as promoted at last Gamescom for end of 2016) by CitizenCon 2018? :ohdear:

Creating Star Citizen alongside all of you has been a wonderful journey; thank you for helping us make sure that journey leads to the game we've all been dreaming of.

Translated: if you stop giving us money, none of us will get a game.

Also, CR himself is saying what is there right now isn't a game. We are just leading to a game.

We deal in facts all the time. CIG have spent 6 years building a tech demo which has had no substantive additions since 2.0. There's no game loop, no persistence, no professions, no use for the ships that are available except for pew-pew and playing a digital version of Star Wars action figures like we did when we were kids. There's no story, no progression, no penalty, no community apart from the 10 people on the server with you. There's no teams, no docking, no inventory, no use for currency. There's NO GAME.

You obviously don't understand the game. Its meant to be a sandbox. YOU make the story instead of relying on others to be your imagination. Theres professions in the game already with a lot more coming. Boutyhunting,soldier, scout, etc. There is def a gameplay loop dont be silly.

Most games don't make the players use their imaginations so much. Games just do all this handholding these days; showing or telling the player everything, having gameplay and assets and just refusing to let the player imagine things on his own, it's just sad really

I'm really glad that CIG has the balls to do something different

I'm reconsidering my decision to never give money to CGI now. If the bit of spare cash I contribute helps get this game made, that'll mean people like PoisonTaco will stay in their homes playing the BDSSE instead of going outside and interacting with the rest of society.

If you watch the whole vid you'll see why the "juicer" itself is made pretty well and would cost way more than the ticket price to produce

Also everyone should sub to AVE to learn something once in a while

Watch it all come crashing down on his head and wonder why any of us gave him money in the first place.
The current build of 3.0 is actually looking pretty great. It's missing over 50% of what Chris promised but it looks fantastic. I reckon it will be an August release and will be the mvp. I think the plan from there out is basically. Amazon

So what does an MVP really get you at this point? What does it signify other than, no refunds because we gave you a "game". Like this is their last dump in the toilet and now we are going to proceed in making it pretty and putting some lipstick and gold spinners on it? I guess I just don't understand dream development.

I think you'll find that it's already AAA rated, fud spreader

"I never thought Id see the day when a crowdfunded game could be classed as AAA, but Star Citizen more than fits the bill. Because its such an expansive and technologically advanced game, a console release is unlikely (Roberts has stated that he will not allow it to be dumbed down to work on less powerful platforms), so we can assume that it will be exclusive to PC unless future consoles have the horsepower to run it successfully."
