    Fine by me. Unlike you I have actual problems that demand my attention, so I don't spend all day raging about small businesses trying to make ends meet.

    Crowdfunding is about trying to make ends meet. *drum*

    This is what we have said in 2012, and now we have confirmation. A bunch of lousy, second rate developers with torn shirts who got no job in the industry.

    There are a few exceptions of course. Like, uh Vavra who is a first rate popamol guy and shows his artists pictures of real buildings. Or the War of Rights guys who most people probably haven't heard about.

    Let enough time to pass and most people would not know who Hitler, Michael Jackson or even Gollop was.

    Listen here, fuckface.
    They asked people for money in return for a game they'd develop on these money. People gave them some money. Then, using the money people gave them, they got the game developed enough to get a contract with Epic. Then they announced that the product that people have already paid for and that wouldn't have happened without them will come with a fuckload of "buts", but they can get their money refunded if they want. So when you claim that
    , you are being intellectually dishonest(read: retarded). They took quite a big thing from backers, and that is an interest-free loan(inflation is a thing btw, so even if you were refunded the exactly the same amount as you pledged, you lost some money). Even worse, they conned the backers into it, as it was never announced before the decision was already made. The game wouldnt have happened without the backers, the Epic deal wouldnt have happened without the backers, and the backers got fucked over in the end, the entire thing is basically fraud. Stop being a bootlicker.

    So currently I am trying out Backer Build 4 and I just came across my first base defense mission, look in the left bottom corner, 13 soldiers on mission. Wonder how many more you could have.

    I think so, to bad I had not more soldiers around (they were all overseas) to see how many would show up on mission, or crash the game.

    Have tried the base defense mission three times now, but my soldiers keep falling through the floor to the bottom level and keep running endlessly against walls going nowhere (only solution alt+F4)

    So the newly added Siren has a mutation called "injector arm", which can "zombiefy" your soldiers.
    It pretty much does the same as Chryssalid did in UFO:EU.

    Doing research in the field I come to the conclusion that the "infected status" she causes to her victims needs to be higher than the soldiers remaining hitpoints, I shoot up a technician to be left with 1 hp, she caused 4 "infected" damage, the turn after he turned into a zombie.

    I wonder if devs are aware that they're selling a pre-order for less than $4. Seems like the decision to go with Epic was not the brightest one after all.

    They're deliberately devaluating a lot of games that haven't even came out yet.

    I get the feeling that devs will get their 88%-off-60$ share anyway because the real money is not being made off game sales

    Nice, 4 months until release date (lol) and still in concept phase. Q2 2020, at best, or a mutilated game. What a joke.

    To clarify: these concepts are taken from the artists artstation portfolio.
    Doesn't mean that they are new that is why I said (new).

    But yeah by the state of Backer Build 4 alone I highly anticipate another delay, on the other hand nobody but the developers knows how the dev builds look and what content they already have in it.

    Guess we find out around E3 as it was hinted by UnstableVoltage that they are going to reveal some new stuff there.
