Very well said! I've known a lot of successful business owners with that type of mentality. You are correct in that they need that guy above them to say "yes or no'. I hope they have it because the rate at which they are adding features, Chris Robertson needs someone to tame it back a bit and get the CURRENT functions working first before adding to the complexity of an already seriously complex game. Star Citizen is amazing. I've said in other videos exactly what you said. If (and ONLY if) it succeeds, it will change the entire MMO gaming industry. They are doing things that are ground-breaking, but my concern is the bugginess of the game... They keep adding to the game yet there are so many problems with the current version. Will 3.0 fix them all? I seriously doubt it. Then add the fact that they still have yet to link every player to each other through the network in the P.U. so that each person will have the ability to meet every other person (like in World of Warcraft) How are they going to put 1 million players in one server without it crashing? It's just not going to happen with today's technology. I'm also an engineer so here's my prediction, so mark the date (5-5-17). They will come to a standstill at some point because of... (drumroll please).... NETWORKING issues. We currently don't have the technology to develop any further, (to a certain extent). It wont be on the software end, but more on the hardware end. It will become a 64 player server connected to other 64 player servers, which means you'll need a shitload of servers to host 1 million people, or even 500,000 people, or even 50,000 players. Eventually CIG will give in and begin using loading screens to go from once scene (instance) to the next. There will be no way around it. Please don't get me wrong. I've spent over $2,000 in ships to help them keep going, but honestly I'm not getting any younger. I hope that money was well spent because I do truly believe in the vision of Star Citizen. But honestly folks, if you understand how the hardware works (as of today), I don't see our dream of flawless interstellar travel through multiple star systems for a least another 5 years out.

I met and discussed with him at 2015 at Gamescon Event.... We got luckily behind the scenes and got to talk with Sandi and Chris, and i must say, he is very humble in regard for us backers, he really sees us as the people he dont want to dissapoint. Sure, it can happen, but this guy really tries to get something done what never was done before. And i didnt see anything what would show an big ego, desire? yes! a dreamer? definitly! i could say about my experience with Chris is that he is possibly the biggest dreamer in the industry, and we will see how it plays out. But thats my only biggest concern. he has the right ppl to do it, he has the finance to pull through with it and he has definitly the vision to make it right.

My take : CR is a 48 year old nerdy guy , who wants to live in the star wars world he loved when he was 10 .No one else would build it so as the money rolled in , he added more and more of his dreams( and ours) .Its not so much ego as it is desire and he's a bit of a perfectionist from all accounts .The reason we gave him more and more money over the years is we bought into that dream way before we heard of SC .When 3.0 comes out (and it's good)you will see a bunch of us open our wallets to fuel even more dreams (ours and his) You are way off .I want him to go all in , all out and build the game I have always hoped for .Wash your mouth out even saying EA will ever have anything to do with this game .CR loathes EA almost as much as I do .Read their history .

Yup I was worried about that 2 years ago, but since his rationalist-brother Erin Roberts in on board and he is a partner, who doesn't work under Chris and makes important decisions, I'm sure we're gonna get there. Thanks for the video.

Yeah I agree with the never saying no. Now they do say no to a few things, but they usually leave the possibility open for another game mechanic.

Good commentary. We have more than enough features to narrow the scope for the initial release's feature lock.

Definitely agree with your perspectives... definitely could use some reigns on the thing, but then again I want to see it reach it's full potential so idk. It's hard to tell how much feature creep is necessary to make this an industry changing game and how much of that is just over-scoping. I think one of the main issues was how thin the team was spread working on StarCitizen, SQ42, AC, and Star Marine, even with all those people they have. I can't wait for SQ42 to be done with so that effort can go into the PU, but who knows maybe SQ42 will be the thing that gives the games development a significant boost later down the line when it needs it, and the flow of capital to send SC sprinting past the finish line vs. jogging, if it ever releases any time soon. Oh like the new video format. all good.

I like that you mix-up background video. Until 2.61 many creators are pulling back a bit. This is the ultra rare the end justifies the means. There never was going to be an "ok" game even if pledge page said it. If the game comes out ok, good, great even that is still a fail. In this market a great game is robbery. Ride or die . Maybe, just maybe this horse can quantum travel.

I'd say his brother Erin Roberts is the pragmatist voice ur talking about.

The whole project just seems like a springboard for CR to "get back in the game". He knew he wouldn't be hired by a major studio as he hasn't been involved in gaming for a long time and after Freelancer he was just as likely to be perceived as a liability. People keep talking about SC and SQ42 but I think CR is already dreaming about making sequels and trying to be the next R* or CDPR before his first game in 20+ years is out the door, nvm a profitable success.

Sorry, 15 years, my bad. I guess after I bought that one I just sorta...put it down.

"his first game in 20+ years". Pretty much sums up your knowledge of the gaming industry.

He's definitely not following the usual Scrum or Prince2 playbooks, but a lot of that is because of the funding model.

CR did say on few occasions that all they promise will not be at the game launch. But few years down the line once game its out. I meet him and his wife and he did say same thing to me they taking all the ideas from players if they like it they say ye we can have this in game but we will not see all when game launch, as all this need more work and he want to finish game ASAP. As for money and if there will be enough to finish game they have reserve in bank and even if people would stop supporting SC from today and CR would be getting £$0 they would carry on with development and once they reach reserve they would stop working on PU and focus all studios on SQ 42 as reserve its enough to finish SQ42 and then what ever they would earn from sales of SQ42 would be use to finish PU. Someone with planes like this will not sale out to EA. Plus we need to remember that people would not stop supporting this game so we can easy say he should be able to finish it as he will have enough money.
