Have a question?
it's not about speed. the "game" is dead in the water. even without the crytek lawsuit there is literally no way they are going to produce anything that approaches the original scope, let alone the insane set of features roberts promised over the years. there is no progress. they have stretched cryengine past its breaking point. it has gotten less playable with each patch, and even under perfect conditions there is roughly one hour of the dullest, least original content possible. derek smart said it couldn't be done and people laughed at him. but he was right. screenshot this post and please come back after they fold without releasing anything, having squandered $200 million. i'll be here.
I don't regret backing this at all. Anyone saying, "Derek Smart was right" is legitimately trolling. While RSI might not be delivering as fast as you want them to you can easily see their progress and take part in it right now. As much as I like Elite:Dangerous you can easily easy what happens when you release too early just to keep people happy: you get nothing in return but an empty shell.
Derek Smart Was Right
This is one I regret backing. I thought I was going to get a new wing commander. I don't do email or social media and I don't play online games either. The problem is I lost my job last year after 36 years and have little prospect for anything to really replace it (unless I move to china) so I will be getting rid of the internet probably by the end of this year.
I should have paid attention and applied for a refund ages ago. With all that money you'd think they could have done a good single player game by now.
Did Cloud Imperium forget their Kickstarter password?
agreed. their utter failure to make a $20 million game with nearly ten times that amount is indeed very, very funny.
let's try that again
lol i can't type
$28,000 for the privilege of buying a cheat code:
they haven't given any refunds since late 2017 despite many, many people requesting them. the crytek lawsuit is going to demolish what's left of the company (if they don't fold before it resolves). your money is gone and there is no game. since they won't admit the truth publically and keep raising funds despite knowing they can't bring any product to market, it is now a scam.
It's not a scam. There is a product. But it's still in development. Is it a scam if the company is still working on the product? It's not necessary to answer. You can believe what you want to believe. The truth is not interesting.
Another reminder that this is a huge scam.
derek smart was right
this will take a while ;-)
ah yes, the old "if you start downloading a video game, you lose the right to refund it" loophole
"The 14-day "cooling off" period does not apply to all purchases. Some of the exemptions are:
- online digital content, if you have already started downloading or streaming it"
Remeber, EU Citizens have the full and unrestricted right to a full refund, the product hasn't actually been released yet.
And even when released, you still have TWO weeks to get a refund. The TOS/EULA/IRONCLAD wont prevent you from getting a refund.
Holy shit, just remembered I backed this game. Has it been this long? Let's see... My daughter was born a couple months before this KS and BAM! she's starting primary school this September. I'll check back again when she graduates from that.
@Elfwyn As a Kickstarter backer, according to Kickstarter regulations, Cloud Imperium Games Corporation is required to give updates and information to its community ON Kickstarter.
This "game" looks and smells like a scam . I am still waiting for a refund. So much time gone by and nothing to show for.
@Derick As a Kickstarter backer you should be able to get all your rewards tranferes to your Star Citizen account. If you create that account best use the email address associated with Kickstarter at the time. If it does not work automatically anymore the support team will then be able to help you faster.
Oh look, no Star Citizen and no Squadron 42
That's what you get for backing a game
How do I get my key. I never got my rewards....
You have both as a kickstarter backer. Squadron 42 is an episodic release type thing; we have all of it as original backers. Episode 1 was supposed to be out last year but has gotten a bit more complex in terms of tech...
Is there still a possibility to change which game people want? Isn't is so that there's the multiplayer version and then the Squadron 42 version with Mark Hamill etc?
I don't care about the mp version so I'd actually just want the single player game.
You should just be able to login and download the latest launcher. You may need to contact support if you’ve never done this yet to make sure your rsi account is set up properly.
Scratch that last comment. Account is active and I see my pledge ship in there. I click Fly Now and it still wants to me to purchase a starter pack. I already have a ship so what's up?
Original backer. Game group was over last night and talking about the game. Where do I start to get a code for my account?
Hello, I am currently trying to get a refund. The support is slow as hell, I thought I could find the bill at Amazon Payment, nope. god damnit 170$ down the drain.
I've asked for a refund multiple times and they always tell me to get fucked
and yet, I still don't have the physical rewards I was promised by November 2014. This whole thing is a scam to allow Chris Roberts & friends to lean on their shovels for 10 years. Once their kids all go off to college they'll release whatever broken game they have and then call it a day
Disaster? I’m finding it quite good.
lol at the unmitigated disaster that is 3.0
people who didn't demand refunds deserve what they get at this point
don't say you weren't warned

lol, i'm sure the lawsuit is no big deal
keep on doing what you're doing, cig
You can go to the website and download the game don't be a salty noob
Oh look. Still no game. Sorry I missed a month reminding everyone.
This is what you get when you preorder a game.
Well. Can't wait to have a play on this: https://www.youtube.com/watch…
Probably new year before that's a stable build though. Lots of new tech in there though.
Scam: A fraudulent or deceptive act or operation.
Fraudulent: obtained, done by, or involving deception, especially criminal deception.
Deceptive: Giving an appearance or impression different from the true one; misleading.
I think we have a winner on Deceptive.
Star Citizen is absolutely not a scam.
Chris Roberts has a proven record of superior space game design. Wing Commander I through IV, Privateer, & Freelancer were amazing achievements which brought me and countless others hours of pure enjoyment.
Chris has no history of scams, but to the contrary, has an impressive list of accomplishments. To call Star Citizen a scam is unfounded harrassment, a direct attack, and defamation of this great man’s character.
It's an absolute scam. Get a refund (see link below).

if the "spirit behind crowdfunding" is "thing you pledged for never materializes in any form" then i wish every publisher was EA
This is my monthly reminder that this project is a huge scam.
