Eventually he lost his case this past Friday when the judge - as was expected - kicked it to arbitration.
What's news is that CIG apparently (we don't know their actual response until the transcripts are available) went on the record with EXACTLY what I had always claimed they would say if they were ever challenged in court.
I'm not even joking here.
This was in 2015.
A time when sources had told myself and The Escapist that CIG was low on funds, had about 90 days of operating capital left etc.
He did just that. The State contacted CIG, and like magic, got his money back.
Again, I sounded the alarm.
He then promised it coming "end of 2016"
The fix was in.
The Early Access rhetoric then went into full swing by end of 2016. I wrote about the implications and what that would mean for backers.
They rushed it out to meet a goal of using it to flat-out refuse refunds.
EXACTLY as I had written based on activities & sources
1) delivered a working game, but
2) the money backers gave had been earned
So no refunds past 14 days. You're stuck until they either deliver or go bust.
And sources have told me that many of them DO know that the promised game will NEVER be completed.
Fact of the matter is, Star Citizen has evolved into a scam of epic proportions. Chris Roberts did this.
So much for The Pledge
