I was discussing with other people waiting for their refunds, and we think there is a big problem…
By law, credit card chargebacks max out at 2 years. What if CIG is only refunding small amounts and risky chargeback customers? High value kickstarter, original, and veteran backers would lose out big time.
Does the TOS 1.1 protect everyone that wants a full refund? If CIG doesn’t refund, many customers lose one of their protections.
Are we legit? baseless? cray cray?
Also of note, the forums went down yesterday at some point. I had to remake this post and I’m sure someone else lost a small post.November 7, 2015 at 5:37 pm in reply to: Star Citizen – Interstellar Pirates #1689
I looked up when the original Completionist was revised to #2.
AC in June 4, 2014, Ozy311 joins Jul 30, 2014, Javelin Destroyer on Nov 27, 2014, and new Completionist around Dec 20, 2014.
Ozy “went in deep” in 5 months. I think he is only a single $15,000 pack, add around $2,900 to have every normal ship not part of the pack, and $2,500 for his single javelin. Factor in $1,000 for the kid. What did the other $8,600 buy aside from extra science ships?
He is playing Vanduul Swarm. Rank 166, flight time of 01:17:35 with 3 matches, and 57% with the usual super hornet under the newest 1.3.0 patch. Double those numbers for the previous 1.1.6 patch.
I am still unimpressed with his 2014 join date, while he has signed “25-year-old original Wing Commander stuff”. It doesn’t matter if stuff was signed 2 decades ago or only recently. Something feels off, even if it is his money.November 7, 2015 at 4:12 pm in reply to: Star Citizen – Interstellar Pirates #1688
I capped my “value” to slightly past $2,500. I consider SC worth $60. Mod tool suite raises it to $200. Running and owning your own server $400. Someone has to make the tools and pay for the downloads. So I figured, I’ll be nice. The other $2,100 was pure buying pay2win ships and skipping the Roberts “40 hour grind scale”. Out of the flyable ships, gotta have that hornet, super hornet, gladius, and gladiator at the very least.
AC was released back in June 4, 2014 and there was no REC back then to “alpha test”. Ozy joined Jul 30, 2014 and I didn’t see any mention of when he “went deep.” Ozy says his son runs a Minecraft server. So maybe they’ll run their own modded server at some point, and that is the “game” they are investing in. If they play in the verse, they’ll be way ahead of the game too. Both are benefits to them.
I don’t think I’ll ever be able to understand Ozy.November 7, 2015 at 2:00 pm in reply to: Star Citizen – Interstellar Pirates #1687
@ Ante Vukorepa
Thank you very much for that invoice. I have a copy of it and the integral note.November 6, 2015 at 10:37 pm in reply to: Star Citizen – Interstellar Pirates #1666
Hey hey. Chris Roberts can do no wrong. He was ultra successful with Wing Commanders and films.
4. Look at 1 again.November 6, 2015 at 5:50 pm in reply to: Star Citizen – Interstellar Pirates #1664
I have 3 opinions about Ozy311.
1. If he is truly one of those lucky tech people that gets to work at home and not commute… combined with living in AZ and lower cost of living, then it’s easily possible to have at least $15k in disposable income. If he is working hard on side jobs to finance his hobbies, more power to him. His money, his hobby.
2. If he is lying, and did use credit card finance, loans, his main income in some form… still his money and his hobby. But I have little sympathy or pity for his addiction. More so if he also white knights past a certain point and reaches Accelerwraith levels.
3. My main complaint opinion is that Ozy311 can just buy every ship 1 by 1, unless he really wants the Idris M and P and Scythe. It’s a lot more economical and less wasted money in a package. The guy is not even a kickstarter, original or veteran backer. Just someone who jumps in way later after a lot of early day risk is gone, then drops money for nearly every ship. Hardly the fan he claims to be when he could literally buy $5 to be a veteran backer, at least since it was part of the early end of LTI news blast. He could still get LTI ships elsewhere up till 2013. His join date of Jul 30, 2014 is pretty late.
Also I need to make it clear. None of the $15k packages ever had every ship. Even with the #2 revision to the package, you still have to buy the other Hulls A B D E, vanguard harbinger $280 and sentinel $265, endeavor for $350 and its almost $600 modules, and glaive $350. Somewhere around $2,700. Then the extra option to buy a javelin is $2,500. Incredibly inefficient use of disposable income and getting every dollar’s worth when it is somewhat easy to do.
In the end, just my opinion, and his income is his to spend.November 6, 2015 at 5:14 pm in reply to: Star Citizen – Interstellar Pirates #1663
Wait, so when Sandi says “upcoming Santa Monica office”, she is lying again?
Wow… cray cray couple.November 6, 2015 at 2:33 am in reply to: Star Citizen – Interstellar Pirates #1643
I think you may be using a few wrong word choices. Manipulation is a very strong negative word. Maybe too strong.
You may be aiming for the word “sensationalized” and trying to say that Derek’s title is too sensationalized or flashy.
When you described Sandi’s speech, manipulation should be rhetoric, the art of influencing the thought and conduct of an audience.
Anyway it’s just my opinion. I do not know how Derek will read your post.
