CIG is a terrible company that has wasted the opportunity of a lifetime that the backers handed them. But they didn't stop there, they continue to abuse their backers trust and prey on their dreams for a cool space game.
Most scams are short-lived because people stop caring if nothing ever comes to fruitition. A well managed one lives from a carrot on a stick and this is something Chris Roberts is pretty proficient in. CR lost my trust in 2014 and everything he has done since then only confirms my initial impression. I am always amazed how people are willing and able to twist their own perception and willfully ignore obvious flaws like the current state of the game in order to keep the dream alive. Due to the short attention span of today's population the frequent release of ATVs is an absolute MUST to keep the money-train going.
You always have to wake up eventually tho. A dream is just that, and eventually even this one will come to an end.

I don't suppose you checked the date of that video you linked to? It's hardly representative of where the project is now, is it?
I find the performance and gameplay of their latest build worse than what they displayed previously. Overall the project appears to be going downhill, It's no longer about massive space battles but better graphics and "realism"

However, you're rude to people, and that will make pretty much anyone less willing to hear what you have to say, regardless of the validity of your points, so no wonder you dont get anywhere with your arguments
Consider this my full apology if anyone felt I was attacking them personally. I do condone the act of continued funding and pay2win business model; I will attempt to differentiate between the act and the person.
