    I look forward to gyrating in front of another player's face whilst they talk to Eckhart.

    That must be one of the features™ of Star Citizen.

    Also, I can imagine how hilarious questing would look like with dozen of people doing stupid shit in front of your face while you speak to NPCs.

    A dozen guys show up and virtually rape you while you are locked in a conversation, forced just to stand there and... watch.

    Both, if we are talking about well done scams, this is Chris Roberts masterpiece.

    Insane people doing insane things is one thing.

    But how about the guys who take advantage of the insane people? How do the SC scamsters look themselves in the mirror, how can they sleep their nights knowing that they most probably have ruined more than a few lives? I wouldn't be surprised if there more than a few deaths involving victims "suckers" of this hoax.

    I would sleep the sleep of kings and Scrooge McDuck in his fucking moneybin if I made some sucker commit suicide because he spent life-alteringly bad sums of money on my imaginary spaceships.

    Think there was some guy that sold his farm to fuel his SC picture addiction, and some other guy that got into his kid's college fund, and a few other sad, broken people.

    Also, shit like this.

    These people really need to see someone about whatever the fuck is wrong with them.

    Took advantage my ass. They allowed themselves to be fooled that way because they are gullible and indulge in sheep herd mentality.

    I thought they were all "whales", wealthy people or at least ITs with no kids and some money to burn, but the idea that there are other people losing money over this is disturbing.

    There are some players making money out of this though.

    Eh, that market is gone now, that was in 2016. I think someone here actually made money on their account, maybe Blaine. Right now grey market is fairly anemic and idiots to buy someone else's JPG collection coming in fresh are few and far between. There's still an amazing amount of old whales buying whatever shit that comes to concept sales though.

    Including space parachutes.

    In a space game.

    About space.

    It's like pulling out all the mashed up rotten guts from inside the dead horse, then putting it inside a fur coat to pretend that it's a fresh horse that can once again be beaten into mush.

    I didn't bother looking at the dates because everything that happened since just confirmed the red flags and criticisms. Here is a glassdoor review from 4 Nov 2017:

    MandaloreGaming is my favourite game youtuber,that guy actually have real life do goes to work and doing it for the fun. He really have good videos.



    On the other note. I can see the mass suicides and terrorist acts when this game is pronounced as finished. The idiot brigade will be decimated once they realise that the game will be that small shitty star system.... maybe two at best. Ohhh it will be glorious amusement .

    I've come up with another theory meanwhile...

    First there were harsh critcisms. Many quarrels. Very passionate. Because people cared. Then many years passed. Most of the criticisms lost their bite. Even Derek Smart mostly stays in his own forum. No active warfare anymore. Fewer and fewer people follow Starcitizen development. Backers lose their interest. They are tired of it. They care less and less. Eventually there is a chance, that CIG goes bankrupt or there is still no game in X years. But instead of a revolt, big bang and aftermath - people will just accept it - because they have no energy anymore. They don't care anymore. Everything will "quietly fart out"...

    Oh yeah,it is a smart tactic,most people will forget it in time. Still an asshole that sold his farm for the game could become very unstable and decides to bomb the studio or something. There are some crazy people backing that shit. If person stakes his life and existing on such shit and he is betrayed,they could easily snap.

    I'm only hoping it comes out so that Mandalore will finally make an epilogue video on it.
