It'd be funny to find out that CIG is actually owned by some huge conglomerate like EA or Microsoft, and their owner has been fronting 90% of the crowdsourced $. Once that leaks then SC becomes more a micro-transaction game for whomever is still playing it since nobody buys the macro-transactions anymore.I've posted before I think they are buying a large part of their own ships.
They put up a $1200 ship, 5000 available, and buy 4000 themselves, to trigger whales to buy the last remaining 1k available, and since it "sold out at record speed" it creates the environment for the next whaletrap.
They'll claim to have sold 6.000.000$ in ships, which technically they have, but in reality they only generated 1.200.000$, which is enough to keep the scam running.
Hard to put a % on completion of SC. If you compare what the original funding campaign was to what has been done to date, SC is 400% done!Is this game really only 25% done? Does that mean in another 21 years and $600,000,000, they will release the game?
If Chris Roberts just burned it all to the ground, declared bankruptcy and said he was going to make a crowdsourced Freelancer 2 with whatever he could salvage I'd probably give the same amount I gave to SC for it ($45).Could we not just have a new updated WingCommander plix? This is fucking retarded.
They must feel somewhat confident to do this, or feeling some external pressure to do it to quell rumors of their impending doom."CIG will release full historical financial details from 2012 through to 2017 via a new corporate website."
This will be intresting.
Oh Come on, DS was a fun ride on the SA forums for a bit until he could no longer contain his doxxing and idiocy. He is banned there (for the third time?) for a reason. Noone besides the cultists pay any intrest in his 1 billion word blogs anymore.They must feel somewhat confident to do this, or feeling some external pressure to do it to quell rumors of their impending doom.
One thing for sure, no matter what they post, good, bad, incomplete or fictional...Derek Smart will say it proves what he's been saying for years and CIG only has a few months left.
I am impressed, it must be very difficult to write articles while living so far up Robert's butthole.
