Thats why keeping people at the wheel is so important else they ll stop caring, stop giving money, stop white knighting....whatever. Taking a break for 6 months is about the worst you can do (in CIGs eyes) because it only highlights how little progress there really is. But if you are kept on the leash, constantly bombarded with videos, probably even getting mail from the devs and the scam brothers making you feel "special" you might stay at the trough. I ve listened to several high level backers talking as if the CEO and other high tier employees are their personal friends and I wonder if that impression isnt intentional to keep the money flowing.The thing I remember most clearly about SC as the excitement, how ambitious it sounded. It looked good, sounded good.
But then I took the biggest turn on my heel I can remember on a game before even playing it. When I found out that you could just buy ships with real money I essentially decided I wanted nothing to do with it. Closed the tabs I was looking info on and just washed my hands of the whole thing.
I had a friend who was super into it, and now I don't even think he remembers caring. It's been so long with no result, how could you keep enthusiasm when all you get are new ships to buy and someday fly?
