It's amazing that this is still going on.  One would have thought that people would have wised up to this by now.

I don't think Chris Roberts is a scammer though.  I think this is what happens when you give a game designer unlimited resources and zero pressure from management to actually finish.

I think it is for the people who may be casually following the game's (lack of) progress. Not everyone is blessed to follow the scam daily like we do in IRC.
This. I haven't sunk a small fortune into this because I'm not an idiot, so I'm just a casual observer.

I think this is what happens when a game makes more money whilst it is in development, than it ever could when it is released.

Parsifal, Anastas and myself have played patch 3.7 about 40 hours the past few weeks. It's incredibly stable (relative to all previous patches) and has a lot of things to do, both officially in the game and also incredibly dumb things we made up ourselves. My personal favorite missions are the ones where Hurston Dynamics pays us to "evict" people from their property by killing them on sight.

I'd say the majority of the time we spend playing the game is spent annoying and/or killing each other in some way with brief pauses to do group missions.

Do you have unlimited time to play the 3.7 patch btw? Or do they give you a certain amount of time to check it out?

They have free flies that are timed for people who haven't bought the game, usually 3 days or a week depending on when it happens. If you've bought the game, you can play as much as you want.
