And anybody going to the event(s)? Victor?
I receive all the invites, ResultsMayDiffer. Due to my "excessive generosity" there is very little I'm unaware of concerning invitations...but being a true recluse I haven't attended any of these events.
At the risk of repeating myself, it was my decision to pledge the money to the game in the form of acquiring additional ships etc. I was warned repeatedly that there was no need to pledge more than was required to acquire a package containing the game and a ship and, with the exception of one ship, I would be able to obtain these ships in-game. If I was in the position where I couldn't afford to write off my additional pledges I wouldn't have made them. I'm truly sorry for anyone who pledged more than they could afford believing that this was some kind of pre-order.
I've supported a number of projects where there was a chance I would never see any return. Star Citizen and Limit Theory being two of them. Where these two projects differ is that Josh Parnell was aware fairly early on that he couldn't deliver on some of the rewards he had offered and issued refunds where appropriate.
Unlike some, I still have faith that both games will be successful but If I needed some kind of guarantee I would have waited until the games were completed and available for purchase in a regular manner. Of course, if I and others had done that with some projects there would be nothing to discuss. Limit Theory would likely still be an Idea In the head of a talented older man and Chris Roberts would be offering something far less grand.
