    Welcome to the party. I am happy to say that waiting for someone else to post it worked out.

    And the image itself…

    CIG is just amazing. Folks are still giving their life savings to a helluva nasty marketing machine.

    It would seem than the UEE fleet number that appears in the rsi site is NOT the real number of backers, but the numbers of ships that people have bought. So the real number of backers (with paid accounts) is a lot lower than thought.

    Found it on the elite forums

    The white knights did something drastic I hear. Hopefully you deal with those folks pronto. Also caught your post about an 11.

    Nothing more sad than to see a scam progressing thanks to stupid customers. Star Citizen is the nigerian prince of the decade.

    Statistics for yearly anniversary sales. This year the sale was extended one extra day due to a snafu with the funding page and processing of sales data.

    11/2013…..$7,880,937
    11/2014…..$6,123,928
    11/2015…..$5,374,050

    @Blix The reason it didn’t bring money is because a) only the whales are funding this train-wreck now b) they just had two back-to-back funding events (CitizenCon, Anniversary) which drained their wallets. Heck, even then, they didn’t even get 15K new “citizens” during the anniversary.

    So if they thought that this broadcast was going to rope in new suckers, they were sadly mistaken. They have already peaked. Which is why they released 2.0 in such a shoddy manner. Just as I predicted and said that they would. If the whales stop giving them money, the project is screwed.

    This is another reason why they are rushing to get SQ42 out the door in some fashion. Unfortunately for them, over 700K people are already entitled to that game via their on-going backing. There is hardly any room to grow.

    2016 is going to be very interesting indeed; and anyone who still has money in this game, come 2016, might as well kiss it goodbye.

    Lets be honest here:

    CIG has never hit a deadline ever and never kept a single promise. Yet once again the do the same thing this time to most likely the largest audience the game has seen.

     

    This is beyond incompetence now, now we are into malice. They could have hedged their wording because of every past failure but they didnt.

    You are correct now Dman that this is gone beyond everything to wring every last little penny a person has out of them before they get disgusted and go away.

     

    And now I love the white knights saying it only brought in $2200 bucks so no biggie. Want to bet the cost of the ad and the time to create it was extravagant?
