Your problem is that you repeating what you have seen from dedicated haters thread... except by definition they do lie and obfuscate all the times.PUIU > I don't think you understand at all just how far off SC is from being an actually playable game that can be released to the public. Any developer will you tell you this: 90% of the work is in the last 10% (and this is not a joke). This is why people call it a scam, it's just not feasible to finish it at the rate they are burning money.
Who the hell expects whales to feed a project for 2 decades and at the of those 2 decades to call it "a success"? Sadly the sunk cost fallacy is real with this project and you are the perfect example of it. In 2031 you'll still be writing in forums just how great it will be when it comes out.
Facts: in 2020 someone extracted RSI data about backers. Here is the result:
- Concierge: 2.3% x 1000$ = 23 M$
- Whales: 0.0142% x 10K = 1.42 M$
- Starter package+: 97.71% = 326 M$
There is no more whales in SC than in any others games. Fortnite do have +350 millions players, I bet the % percentage of those spending several thousands on skins (just skins not ambitious games) do match at minimum SC.
Sunk cost is the second 'proof' of haters... Except again this if false. For 45$ SC already provided hundreds hours of entertainment and the best is to come. All flyablle ships available in game for credits not cash... Another fact that haters said it will never happen before at least release.
Haters hate that is a life style.
