Don't get us started on the apologetics streak. @MTBFritz and I have gone over this path in the past (I'm not going to crawl through thread iterations 3-9 to find it), but as a malfunctioning Russian Orthodox person, the culture of Star Citizen definitely smacks of kissing icons and self-flagellation to achieve a higher station.Exactly. I mean, it's okay to say "this person has their information wrong," but what this person wanted was more like CiG apologetics, like what I had to deal with when I was a fundamentalist Christian more than 20 years ago. That need to prove someone not only wrong, but to make them believe the cause is just and right. Silly as it sounds for a video game.
Of course, that's from the bottom of the ladder, looking up. Those who got out, as well as those in Evocati know it's a ploy to get more funding from the true believers who are either spite-pledging, or who really really truly cross-my-heart want to see this project succeed.
The truth is Star Citizen will succeed or fail on its own merits, and the after-action report will be hilarious either way.
