Anyone? I just got in & it's a bit buggy, but not 1/2 bad.

You go anywhere outside of the Star Citizen universe and everyone calls this game a scam. I find this so interesting. I don't know what is worse to be honest. The haters or the whales.

Only time will tell lol.

Not sure why you would hate the whales. They are funding an amazing game for all of us.

well that's why I'm torn because they are throwing tons of money into developing the game but the inherit nature of whales always seems to lead to P2W mechanics. So only time will tell.

Well, games are not provided free as a public service. Either you pay for a monthly subscription, or individuals pay for extras.

Either way, games need revenue.

I wish we could go back to every game requiring a monthly subscription and get rid of the loot boxes and in game stores.

Game companies have discovered that gamers don't like monthly subscriptions. Gamers accept the illusion of free to play, and patronize the in game stores because the think they are getting good value for their money.

It's a win win situation. Game companies get necessary revenue, and the majority of gamers get what they want, too. Cheap bastards like me play, but rarely shop.

I think there are still games that charge a monthly subscription. Eve Online comes to mind, but they also have plex and an online store.

Gamers have spoken, and this is what most gamers want.

Bottom line is - you can ONLY fly one ship at a time (as a pilot) and can only sit in one seat at a time. Sure you can multi-box I suppose, but you won't be able to independently "effectively" control more than one ship at a time. So in my opinion; a of "concept" ships are a convenience - not a P2W, you cant FLY them all!

I am with Owain, better for them to have the funding that they NEED to put people in the seats to make this game possible (which they are doing) than to tell everyone to "wait until it is done" (maybe never w/o funding). It is really hard to see the employees "dedication" to the project via videos (some of them you can) - but if you ever get a chance, go to a CitizenCon and it becomes CRYSTAL CLEAR. They are working their asses off making their dream-game for them AND for us!
