Wait, this scam is still going?
fuck, completely forgot that Star Citizen was still a thing. I guess having nothing close to the launch promises is more than enough to get people to spend money.
Follow the game before making assumptions, but you're probably just trolling. They're doing very well actually and we expect the single player campaign to be out at the end of the year

Have you actually played any of it?
I don't think people realize how insanely in depth this game is, not to mention the sheer scale and scope of it.
There has never been a game like it.

I have spent a good chunk of cash on this game, more than i have spent in any other game. And so far its been worth every cent. People can call it a scam as much as they want but iv never played another game that is in pre alpha with 0 story line that i can happily spend hours and hours playing. I have more fun playing star cit that i had playing games like witcher and skyrim.

I'm very keen to get into this once my new PC is built. I've been trailing it closely for a few months now and the quietness of it is so appealing. The Drake Caterpillar looks so good:love:

Me too, I've been putting a lot of time into Star CItizen in the lockdown evenings and I'm loving it. Super happy that there have been some improvements to the desync issues that were present in 3.8.2.

I couldn't find you under ANB. I'm under LGF or Le Grand Fromage if you're ever looking for a wingman:)
I think i might hit concierge before the end of the year
You're going to have to add a top hat to your profile picture if you hit Concierge...
I'm not funding any more with the exchange rate as it is, my current goal is to buy a Caterpillar in-game. I got wiped in 3,9 so that's not going very well.

Love me a Cat. I steal one from the pirates whenever possible.

There is a free fly week coming up shortly where you can try the game without paying anything. If you decide to dive in feel free to drop me a line and I'll show you the ropes.

I will most certainly take up that opportunity :love: There's a YT'ber named pAnko who upload missions, without commentary or anything, just gameplay. It's honestly so good for the soul, and the person uses the Catepillar most of the time for the trade missions. The engine design is mesmerizing.

I would gladly appreciate being shown the ropes. The verse can be distracting😂

I saw this, but I thought from a glance that there wasn't an option to actually be in-game. So I am quite keen on the fact that you indeed can get in and explore the verse 😅

This doesn't often, so I'm going to share.

I wanted to check out how much the game is at the moment, and to my surprise, I was an early backer. :D

Will be downloading and playing soon.

I played until 2 am xD I haven't had that much fun simply looking and admiring stuff than this in a long time. Detail and scale is unmatched. The Constellation Andromeda is a Beaut but a thick boi xD

Well, might as well check it out if I can for free.
I had thoughts about getting it a year or 2 or 3 back. Didn't take the plunge.

Dude, the scale is so nice. It has a weird appeal to it, simply admiring the detail and the scale. There is something oddly satisfying about flying away from a planet and watching everything scale almost perfectly.

So I signed up for the free fly end of August 2016. I don't recall ever playing though. Maybe I walked around the hangar or something.

Busy downloading....

I think it was my firewall, had to disable my AVG to start it up. I'm happy to jam from around 7, throw me the dischord.

Is there a cheaper way to get the game then buying the starter packages?

Seeing this game earlier this year got me building a pc again. Almost done... Home I still get a day or so of the free play

I was also an early backer on this but never quite got into with the issues at the start , time to again download and see how the verse has evolved.

Went out for some exploring for the last two days with MR Wobbles and Toy machine.

First time in game personally and have to say that it is mind blowing what they have managed to do. Performance is crap but if you can get past that and just admire the scale and complexity of what was created in this game then that alone makes it worth getting.

If you are looking to do some real "playing" then I suggest you have a good pc as frame drops make it difficult to participate in firefights etc.

For reference I have a:
i5 6500 CPU
16gb Ram
1080 GPU

I have trouble at one of the stations so far with regards to frame rates but otherwise can enjoy most my time messing around in the verse. Go into this expecting an unfinished project and admire what these people have created. Something that stood out for me was that this game is being made for future gen hardware as it's a massive project - helps put everything in perspective.
