I've been a backer for almost five years, with a substantial investment in ships.Have you played SC? It has never felt like scripted scenes to me while playing it.
Unless of course it doesn't get bumped to 3.7, then 3.8, then drop off the roadmap entirely.Was supposed to be in 3.6 but got bumped to 3.6.1. So hypothetically, some time before Oct 1st assuming 3.6.1 is before 3.7. But 3.6 is now 19 days late. So something has got to give sooner or later.
I think the pendulum is shifting slowly. The only reason to gently bring the in game prices down is because you need to attract new players. Backers have been more than generous, the moment they aren't funding to the same level, you need new money..The school of whales is exhausted, so you are into regular gamers and the last thing you want is a grind wall so high that it puts people off. This was inevitable and part of the reason why the T&C's have changed. I see lots of wailing of a different sort looming.Cant they see the inherent contradiction here ? If it's not pay 2 win then why complain about getting a Hammerhead in 2 weeks of grinding ? It should not be an issue, right if it's "not p2w" as they claim ?
It has been a couple hours and no one has responded to my similar question.Cant they see the inherent contradiction here ? If it's not pay 2 win then why complain about getting a Hammerhead in 2 weeks of grinding ? It should not be an issue, right if it's "not p2w" as they claim ?
They're just heating up the branding irons — heretical thought must be purged by fire.It has been a couple hours and no one has responded to my similar question.
I've seen reports that with QT interdictions and scans happening frequently (2 - 3 times per run) and no way to avoid them (you can't avoid an interdiction and running away = you get crime status instantly) the drug running is pmuch dead, but we'll have to see.And if they bring back drug running / illegal missions being really profitable, it could make money making easier.
Everything Roberts did from WC3 onwards was geared towards him "making it" in Hollywood. To his credit, he managed to get his foot in the door. To his discredit, he made the Wing Commander movie and was eventually sued out of the business. But yes, everything he does is framed as being the work of the godlike auteur who has graced us with his genius and is going to show the games industry how it's done. Assuming "it" is how to make money without ever delivering a game.In conclusion, I don't think Chris Roberts wants to release this game and is hoping deparetly that someone from Hollywood will take note and hire him to turn it into a movie, with him as star film director and film maker.
Actually, the problem he has with SC is the opposite. He wishes it was like a movie, but unfortunately in an open world online game you don't get to edit out the boring bits and replace them with cutscenes (like in the old Wing Commander days). He doesn't have the game design talent, the capacity to trust in the more talented people around him, or even sufficient interest in the moment-to-moment gameplay to fill in the blanks. So instead it's just all big picture waffle, and more ship sales.From all that I have seen in Star Citizen, it plays like a movie, feels like scripted scenes written for someone else and all that is missing is Chris Roberts as Star Citizen.
I don't think that's true, from the very limited amount I know about SC, I think they just bit off way more than they could chew. I mean they're trying to do ED AND space legs, which is a tall order for anyone to deliver!It is if you have no intention of finishing both games.
NPC's are still horrible and not worth worrying about. Bring on whatever interdiction happens.I've seen reports that with QT interdictions and scans happening frequently (2 - 3 times per run) and no way to avoid them (you can't avoid an interdiction and running away = you get crime status instantly) the drug running is pmuch dead, but we'll have to see.
Maybe CI can balance it (wwwwww)
