Star Citizen Discussion Thread v12

I've posted the Metacritic info to Spectrum. Wonder what Nightrider-CIG will make of it?
So what's the deal with Metacritic? Did some timer elapse or was it actively put out to freely review recently?

SPOILER: It didn't actually work that well...

That's all taken from the same streaming session.
Yeah, even in the video I did like the lines about '...is that the box that kills us?', 'Oh yeah, it'll kill you...'

But when it works it does look like fun. If only it worked reliably and had fully fleshed out gameplay loops.

Heads for the door mumbling quietly about exploration and land claims... perhaps it's time for some more Valheim... it may be in early access, but there's loads to do and I've yet to be killed by a box!
 
No, I get that someone genuinely reported Beet Wagon to the FBI - can certainly believe an SC backer would do that.

I just cannot ever ever ever believe Beet Wagon would genuinely score SC 10/10 on Metacritic.



😂
 
So the review total was negative before the refunds sub even found it. Interesting.

And you think people who’ve refunded have never played the game. How exactly would that work?
The vast majority of refunders played x years ago and haven't tested by themselves the actual alpha. They don't want to waste their time with the freefly and don't own the game anymore (it's the "refund" channel).

Some of the regulars definitely play it to this day:

Because the sub is actually home to a broad church. Some haven't got rid of their core game package (in part because refunds aren't actually possible for many long-term players). Others have actually managed to refund fully, but do drop back in to free flies to see if the alpha has improved since their time. Others are simply sceptical about the game, and visit the sub to discuss SC without having to deal with the mindless tropes of white knights ;)

Also, it's not like fresh new refunders don't crop up regularly...

I won't attempt to figure out what percentage of the sub has actually played recently, because that would be an absurd task. It's cute that you think you know the answer though ;)

I've had to use charge-back a couple of times. Once via PayPal. It worked both times. Neither time did the 'trader' (ahem) reply. But I got my money back and left appropriate reviews on TrustPilot.

One tip: record everything in emails that you send to the scammer vendor. Give them a few weeks, and then press the 'appropriate button'. For PayPal use their resolution mechanism as well. It all helps your case!

Yeah within 30 days you're ok.

It's the longer term players who find themselves in the infinite 'You have played the alpha, therefore you have received the game' ToS trap that have fewer easy outs...
