Just crashed someone's Reclaimer into Delamar on accident. That ship is incredibly huge.

Melted the Avenger for a Gladius. It’s my favorite ship so far. On Parsifal’s advice I bought an Avenger Titan and did a few cargo hauls. It’s a pretty sweet little ship, and it looks like the whole Avenger line is getting reworked to be bigger.

The game is a lot more playable than when I first got it a year ago. I’ve been able to play it for long stretches instead of turning it off after 20 minutes in frustration. My concern right now is how quickly they’ll be able to expand the verse. We know they can take care of bugs, add ships and improve performance. But the actual gameplay arena is really small and hasn’t expanded much during the years it’s been in development. They’re supposed to have 100 star systems on release. It looks like they’ll be lucky to get 3-4 in. Still, that would be quite a big play area, but nothing close to the scope that they promised.

Don't worry, they'll probably release more systems are overpriced DLC.
You just made my list, buddy.  >:(

I ordered one fresh, crisp C2 Starlifter. Crusader Industries will be rolling it off the assembly line sometime next year hopefully. The ship is just too beautiful to pass up, and with the bundled LTI it will save a lot of headaches down the road. Next up, I'll be looking to get some sort of aggressive ship like a gunship or heavy bomber. We'll see what CIG has up its sleeves over the coming months. I also want to pick up a Prospector if it goes on sale in November. And I want a Terrapin so I can scan the living fuck out of things. Help.

Rushy will just EMP you and then shoot your wings off.

Rushy would know you don't need wings to fly in space so he wouldn't waste the ammo. After the EMP he'd sweep my ship for valuables, and I'd be waiting in a dark corner ready to attack.

Yesterday, right after Hollocrob dumped all that cash.

Maybe in 20-30 years when the game is reaching the end of its life.

I would be shocked if it lasted 20 years.

It will easily last that long. World of Warcraft is almost 14 years old and still going strong, and it has way less ambition/scope.

But it has a stable developer.

WoW has had lots of different lead designers and has changed development studios several times. Technically speaking, it's not even the same company overseeing it anymore.

Chris Roberts isn't perfect but  I don't think anyone else could have made something like Star Citizen happen.

Obviously he has a vision and a ton of ambition. It just seems that WoW tends to hit production deadlines more regularly and perhaps that kind of execution is missing in SC’s team.

Where did you find WoW's production deadlines published?

Holy shit, and I thought the Starfarer was big. Also, my ingame name is Ocius if anyone wants to add me. Post your names so we can all be gay space bros. Grouping is coming in 3.2 it looks like.

Size comparison of all ships announced so far (except for ships that players cannot own, such as the Pegasus, Bengal or Retribution)
