    My tagline was born somewhat out of this realization and coincidentally, after watching the first part of this a couple weeks ago. At least you make your own character in SC, but yeah, this is where we are now.

    Except when they compromise (server headcount limits, npc closets, non-physicalised elevators, scaled-down planets, no orbital motion...).

    It's out in early access / alpha. It's buggy, performance is poor, and it crashes from time to time. If you have an itch for space trucking, this game provides nice looking spaceships and environments in which to do so, with lots of different ships and customizations to work toward. There's some other stuff too but it is mostly not fully baked.

    They have a few events per year where you can try it out for free for a week. I would recommend trying before you buy.

    Space trucking is currently broken right now. Trade terminals aren't loading correctly. Sometimes they will if you wait for 10-15 minutes, but no one has time for that shit.

    You can. There are missions for PVE space combat with various scenarios and difficulty and bugginess. The new patch adds some capital ship battles, I haven't checked them out yet. You can try your luck with PVP bounty hunting criminal players, but it tends to be time consuming to catch someone outside of armistice zones. Or you can just pick fights with other players randomly - it's not profitable but it can be fun.

    I think there might be something fishy about this whole thing - like maybe the whole "game" is being used as a huge money laundering operation. Sure hope that law enforcement looked at that angle.

    Sounds a bit too tin foil hat. However, I wouldn’t be surprised if that data was pure bullshit.

    Usually, crowdfunded projects get the highest amount of funding at start and shortly before it ends, this one keeps getting higher and higher with every year, where the hell do all these new backers keep coming from with all this money for almost a decade now…

    A retard and his money are easily parted. And Star Citizen is a magnet for retards. Like taking candy from a candy-hating baby.

    Have you guys ever considered that you know, people play the free weekends and want unlimited access to it because they're having fun and then their friends start wondering why Discord shows that they're always playing Star Citizen, hit up the free weekend rinse and repeat?

    UK Numbers bit hard to verify, but not impossible. You can go to https://find-and-update.company-information.service.gov.uk/company/08703814/filing-history and start digging for all their entities. I already don't particularly like the headcount numbers. 2017 had all 318 people in Foundry 42 (then renamed Clound Imperium Games Limited), but that headcount chart lists only 317. A small discrepancy, sure, but not a good sign. For 2018 it's 338 vs 355, so most likely they are counting other UK entities. I haven't seen their 2019 stuff uploaded to CH, though I haven't dug too much - not going all Derek Smart on this. However, I would take any numbers that are published in non-regulated documents (i.e. SEC/FCA fillings, Companies House fillings, etc.) with a grain of salt. And quite likely there is some lovely accounting magic in the official docs as well.
