welcome to the new Star Citizen Refund thread!

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-W6as8oVcuM" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-W6as8oVcuM</a>

I'll just quote the OP in it's entirety:

Quote from: Beer4TheBeerGod" post="450827400


Procedure To Obtain a Refund
1. Consider selling your ships instead, you'll likely get more money.
2. Send an e-mail to support@cloudimperiumgames.com
3. Request a full refund.
4. Explain that the game as most recently described is not the same game that you pledged for and that you no longer believe in the project.
5. Emphasize the lack of progress, CIG's own admission that the scope and nature of the game has changed, and the lack of a defined delivery date.
6. Alternatively create a sob story about medical expenses, familial hardship, etc.
7. Hope they don't decide to change their policy.
8. Kick yourself for spending enough money to have to do this.

Wait wait wait I don't pay attention to Star Citizen except to occasionally come in and see how much money you guys are wasting on a game that doesn't exist. Is this actually curtains for SC or something?
The short version is that there have been some high profile terminations, a bunch of not so high profile terminations, and lots of rumors swirling that they are hemorrhaging cash.  Like, so much cash that they will be broke at the start of next year.  Things look grim enough that many in this thread are bailing.

Yes, it is true. I have also submitted a refund request, I'm not trusting dodgy reddit people and trying to do grey market stuff doesn't strike me right.

Dog's plans for the forum have been extensively discussed with 3 of the other 4 fagmins, via group PM, over a period of months.

The only ones "subverting" the forum here are the swole cru/wn/alt rightards who, by their own admission, want to change this forum from what it was, was intended to be, and what the former and current owners want it to be.

I just loved all those threads the goons had about how this game was gonna be SO AWESOME THAT ANYONE WHO DOESN'T GET IT IS A LOSER  :smug:.

I'd pay money to see a mass montage of all those neckbeards sobbing into their Cheeto dusted keyboards when they finally realized they proved P.T. Barnum right.

This feels a lot like the time goons went all in on that Hellgate London game, buying up lifetime memberships for $200 and hitting the roof when it folded after 2 months. Only this time they went in for thousands :twinkles: :clappo: :noice: :burnslol:

tried to find more information about what's going on with star citizen. apparently a bunch of community managers got fired.
from derek smart (yes he's still alive):
Quote
BREAKING NEWS!!! - Star Citizen I have some sad news to report.
Since my recent blog "Star Citizen - The Long Con" went live yesterday, apparently a lot has been going on at RSI/CIG brain trust.
Key issue here is that I linked to a letter one David Jennison wrote when he quit working there.
For the record, I do NOT know this person. Not even on social media. And even when I reached out to authenticate the letter, I got a "no comment" from various sources.
Apparently he had shared it with some people in order to explain why he was leaving so suddenly. And it looks like one of those people sent it to me using a burner email account which is now unreachable. Pretty much how various unknown sources have been reaching out to me since I started writing these blogs back in July.
So today, multiple sources are telling us that the Santa Monica studio is in full crisis mode as a result.
Sources are telling me that Sandi, wife of Chris Roberts, is pointing fingers and publicly blaming people in the office for leaking the letter. A letter which isn't even company property btw. As the story goes, she called two of them "fuckers" in front of their co-workers. And as the word goes, it may have been during that altercation that two people turned in their key cards and immediately walked out.
As it stands, two have quit.
Lisa Ohanian (Ship Shape), gave 2 week notice.
Paul Forgy, quit on the spot - and walked out.
Alyssa Delhotal and James Pugh were reportedly fired under suspicion of leaking information to me. Since I don't know ANY of the above people, it's patently false.
It gets worse...
Meanwhile 9 people in Austin were informed that their jobs are being eliminated in October.
Additional people are reported to be informed today and tomorrow.
As I had mentioned a few weeks ago, multiple sources are telling me that the plan is to close the Austin office by end of this year. People let go so far are Artists, Engineers, and Designers working on the PU (!!!!!).
Also, sources tell me that they are hovering around $8 (!) million in cash right now and still burning around $3.5m (!) per month. Which is why they are now initiating immediate downsizing company wide. Quietly. They are hoping that upcoming sales go well to tide them over in the short term.
As it stands, credible sources tell me that they are going to run out of money at their current sales/burn by Q1/16, assuming they get some spikes from the upcoming sales and anniversary sale in November.
Which explains the Endeavor ship sale that went live in the past 24hrs.
During this downsizing, while consolidating global development in the UK, they are focusing on Squadron 42 because right now it isn't scheduled to be ready for release for another 15 (!) months. At best.
There is so much info coming in right now, that I simply can't divulge all of it without putting people at risk. So I am getting on a call with legal in a bit. I remain torn between my loyalty to industry sources, and my need to alert the industry that, as predicted, as big as this crowd-funding effort was, it is still on track to be the biggest single collapse of an entity in the history of the industry.
I have been sounding this warning bell since July. But I got incessantly attacked for it, and I am still under attack as a result.
I will add another update once I hear back from legal. I will probably just throw up another blog since it's so much stuff to wade through right now.
In the meantime, to those of you affected by this, don't even bother with attorneys or suing them. I got this. Just go find yourselves a new job, take care of your families and keep sending us stuff. This is a crowd-funded company and there are higher standards.
Most of all :
1) DO NOT TRUST THE MEDIA!!! If you want to know which of them to trust and/or talk to, contact me (anon is fine) directly at dsmart@live.com. You deserve to tell your story and I 100% guarantee you that I will make sure that it gets out and goes into the public record via the legal system as you wish for it to be told. Remember, you are going to be around in this industry, working alongside the best of the best, for years to come. Don't make light of that.
2) DO NOT TRUST ANY OF CHRIS'S FRIENDS. If you make the single mistake of talking to someone who knows someone who knows someone, you may find yourself in violation of your exit agreement (if any) and/or NDA signed at hiring. So don't do it.
3) Ben Lesnick cannot be trusted. But you probably already knew that.

[]Lonestar_the_Kilrath 150 points 6 days ago
this. right here. is exactly what Derek Smart wants. Fear, uncertainty, and doubt. You've just bought into it, Nkato. and now you're helping to spread it by casting your own uncertainty to the wind.
I've never worked for a company that doesn't regularly overturn some staff. half the people i work with weren't there when i started, and many people have left over personal problems or issues with management. but, it did not mean we were going tits up, running out of money, or being mismanaged. people sometimes don't like the work, don't like their coworkers, want something different, or can't handle the job related stress.
you said you're going to be concerned until CIG gets their act together, and really there is not any evidence that their act isn't together except Derek Smart says there's a problem because of [X] reason. it's all confirmation bias, and he's using it to mess with people's heads.
this is EXACTLY what FUD marketing is meant to accomplish!

Quote
I consider Dick Short to be an unrepentant shit-disturber.
Even if he didn't exist, such firings would have eventually become public by some regular sleuthing work by most folks, or noticed in the upcoming RTV.
Seriously. Stop thinking that it's about DS. I don't care about him. I care about CIG avoiding a repeat of Digital Anvil. That's all.

Quote
[]SimYouLaterFreelancer 31 points 6 days ago
I'll back you up on this. DS is a heartless bastard who has done nothing but try to ruin Star Citizen for his personal gain.
The problem is that people getting fired, while not 100% confirmed, looks bad when its sudden and in a large amount from one specific and high-profile branch of CIG. If it turns out to be true, that's a bad sign for Star Citizen.
Regardless, if CIG fails to make it, I doubt it's anything but an honest mistake.
First, DS can quote all the made-up fiscal data he wants, it's unlikely they're really as low as 8 million after all the lies he's spouted. You cry wolf, you get eaten.
Even if they are dangerously low, where do you, as a backer, think the money is going? You could be pessimistic and believe DS and manzes, but I doubt CIG could make the parts of the game they have as well as they did while paying the top brass irresponsibly large sums of money.
This worries me yes, but DS' commentary might as well be a blank webpage in my mind, because nothing he's ever said about Star Citizen has been anything other than lies and slander.
If CIG fails, it was because they tried their best but it wasn't good enough. NOT solely because of shady business, though that may contribute to the problem.

Quote
He's spouting those numbers in an attempt to provoke CIG into releasing the fiscal records. That's been his number one objective all along.
Also, fun fact: Dick Short's website is blacklisted on my network. :D

that devious derek smart, trying to get a company that's made a hundred million dollars off of donations give financial transparency to people. what a douche!

Quote
[]lordx3n0saeonPirate 10 points 6 days ago
Fuck all this nonsense.
I survived the "summer of doubt" leading up to gamescom.
I can handle the next 2 weeks to citizencon.
I'm pretty pissed at a large number of you right now. It's seriously tempting to link this shit when CIG blows everyone away at citizen con.
