Remember this past Summer when I broke the news that RSI/CIG had taken out a "payday" loan with Coutts bank UK? And Ortwin was forced to make a post on the forum - on a weekend - in which he basically shrugged it off. Then subsequently nobody was allowed to discuss it again?
For the longest time, RSI/CIG has prevented backers from not only questioning them about what's happening with their money, but anything related to accountability, gets suppressed, and backers get banned. Those same backers just go get a refund and move on.
The most recent example is that no discussion about the CryTek lawsuit, is allowed on the forums. At all. Threads are locked, backers banned etc.

Imagine having helped to fund a $175M game, and you're not allowed to discuss issues which pose a danger to the project & its funding
This Concierge backer was the most recent victim.

He was contacted by CIG to be on one of their shows. They didn't follow through. CryTek lawsuit happens. He tries to discuss it on the forums. He gets threatened with a ban.

So he made a video.

Though the loan had nothing to do with this thread, for those of you who need to catch up on the loan.

06/24: going off a source tip about it, I wrote about the financial issues…

06/30: once it became public, I wrote about it…
