PS I reckon OS&W have finally got bored of being wrong. Lulz.
Ha! You guys really never get tired do you?
And the very same to you.
@Wyzak @Oldschool Shadowrunner
Have either of you got any helpful insights into the current situation regarding Elite: Dangerous, Planet Coaster and Frontier Developments?
facts are the new #fakenews ^^
hope you have a great weekend
_STILL_ shamelessly "protecting your investment" (from person, or persons unknown) by posting objective facts, again? SMH
just the tonic required ^^
let's see how the week pans out
It's official 500K Planet Coaster units, 2.1m Elite Dangerous by end of December.
Hmmm... either you own a DeLorean and a clock-tower, or you had (and continue to have) a far more objective and realistic view of FDEV's prospects than certain offline... erm... "enthusiasts" %^]
deusx_ophc on April 13, 2016
"...in early 2017 (around the same time you will stop posting here) FDEV will publish the first 6 months of #planetcoaster laughing all the way to the bank, i think it is called ^^"
Planet Coaster has shifted 568,297 ± 41,111 units since alpha release.
~400,000 in less than 2 months since Steam release on 17th November
GBX 120 #idemandakickstartercommentseditbutton!!!1212!
FDEV was around GBX 2,00 then (buying shy under) so yeah a decent return by any means. about 1,2 GBX or 57.5% pre tax ^^
I wonder what the 'virtual investment' I suggested for Oldschool Shadowrunner is worth now? %^]
@theta #doom indeed.
just have a look at the FDEV share price and see for yourself what this investment has cost you!! yesterdays close at GBX 320.5 +2.89% (Up +9.00) is at an ALL TIME LOW!!!1212!1
so now what? prepare to liquidise once figures are up in feb and in time for the commemcement of #brexit in march or just indulge in FDEV until the end of time? ! i sense that the fx meltdown isn't priced in yet and that there will be some very nice opportunities around at the LSE specially based on dividend titles.
but yeah #doom ^^
Woah, Ashley Jenkins and Gus Sorola really signed the death-warrant for Elite: Dangerous there. Game Over, man! Game Over! %^]
PS where are the deluded twins? After 2 years of desperation they've gone really quiet all of a sudden.
i am getting the echo chamber blues ^^
how about we add some lightness
@theta i don't care as long as we get THARGOIDS in planet coaster ^^ #cross-fertilisation
Coming to a popular space-trading-combat game near you, soon?
"In Planet Coaster’s voxel-based sandbox we wanted to simulate 10,000 park guests at once and we wanted them to look like a real crowd. We also wanted them to be able to handle curved paths, which had proven a challenging task in crowd simulations from our previous games but something we considered essential to Planet Coaster."
When will you guys admit that your obsession with the lack of offline mode left you blind to the fact that you were utterly wrong on almost every other claim you have made over the past two years?
This game is doomed
licensing is always iffy. there can be serious money for little/to no effort but that is rare these days. and it is always a hassle...
FDEV showed their shrewd and prudent sides by going public & use coffers for transition. good on them ^^
oh and @oldfool how about helping this little gem of a kickstarter to get off the ground? http://www.edrpg.co.uk/ it is ALL OFFLINE and must be right down your oldschool shadowrun alley.
Naughty naughty Atari.
No wonder Frontier prefer to be 100% self-publishing.
happy new year!
@os you silly old fool^^
you may want to ask drew that question
Elite Dangerous licensee goes out of business. https://eucl3d.com/
Are there any left alive?
Happy New Year all!
@V3teran now there is another name i recall ^^ hope you can also enjoy the festive season and all the best for 2017.
in my mind the funding was always a certainty, just needed helping along from many commanders. FDEV and DB did a tremendous job to force the ks into the right direction,
another critical injunction were the literary licenses
and also i recall this place being a riot (of fun mostly)
last but not least, after all the dust setltles seeing is believing ^^
Hi all, hope you had a good Christmas...seems only like a few days ago when this was finally funded...remember when we all though that it was not gonna get funded at one point.

- another good run for shareholders over the last month"
So, in reality the share price has just risen 85% in 4 months, now at 302.5p i.e. around 4p less than the all-time peak back in 2014 despite all the #doom
Fascinating how W&OS choose to ignore the facts
Where is the #doom ?
Perhaps it will finally happen in 2017 %^]
It would apparently be unethical to post objective facts about a game that didn't deliver something that was part of their Kickstarter pitch.
How's Star Citizen looking these days? %^]
@theta i bet you everyone has run off to BUY FDEV shares after our sage advise on here over the years ^^
btw GBX 297.45 +5.85% (Up +16.45)
It's oh so quiet.
@theta brainz it is then ^^
You're providing an important service to the tens of thousands of high-flying city traders who invest millions on the basis of the cogent insights afforded by the deep economic analysis helpfully and freely provided by obsessive fanboys on this zombie comments section %^]
GBX 275.00 +5.36% (Up +14.00) #justsaying #doom
some GBP 38K raised for special effect so far - these are the good guys
and amongst all the bitter feuding there are some gentler minds - how about trying the final 12hrs of the ED 24hrs charity stream - good clean fun for everyone ^^
Wyzak: "you are right I did conjecture that"
That's a great step forward Wyzak. Publicly admitting that two years of your baseless conjecture has utterly failed to transpire is real progress. Well done you.
As to 'massive hypocrisy':
Wyzak on 4th April, 2015:
"The information in that post and in all of my other posts have been factually accurate."
Hmmm... that's interesting, as there's an ever-growing list of statements and conjecture you've made in these comments that have all been proven to be factually incorrect/misleading/just plain wrong.
Here's just one example of the falsity of your conjecture and prediction:
"...thousands of posters on the forums and the Steam community are still waiting for FDEV to tell them that they won't be receiving Steam keys."
Reality: FDEV announce Steam keys for all - in direct contradiction to Wyzak's prediction.
Theta Sigma, you are right I did conjecture that. But either I have proven that you own shares in FDEV, or I have proven that you are massively hypocritical and do exactly what you insist others should not do.
GBX 255.00 +2.62% (Up +6.50) #justsaying #doom
oh and have a great start into the week everyone!
Happy birthday Elite:Dangerous!
GBX 247.50 +0.81% (Up +2.00) #justsaying #doom
You conjectured that I sold the alleged shares that you conjectured that I allegedly bought? %^]
This, in conjunction with your two years and counting (list available on request) of demonstrably failed predictions and conjecture surrounding the imminent #doom of Elite: Dangerous, Frontier Developments and David Braben.
GBX 241.50 +2.77% (Up +6.50) #justsaying #doom
Have I seen any evidence that you have sold your shares Theta Sigma? No.
I conjectured as much because you haven't posted under your alias in the LSE thread for at least a year. This after you mentioned that those who don't own shares should not post there. I can't see further as I don't have an account even though you've accused me repeatedly of being biglittle456, and I honestly couldn't be bothered to create one just to see the last time you posted.
Would you like to publicly state that you've sold your shares or alternatively that you still own shares in FDEV?
