  1. Based on my prelim testing, this is the patch to get involved with this game if you have not already. They have finally justified the cost associated with getting "early access". That said, there's a lot of work that still needs to be done between now and live. But the outlook from my point of view is 8/10. Will post updates as I continue.
  2. The biggest patch in the game thus far has been released to early testers (Evocati). This includes planetary landing, updated patching, and quite a few other features. I'll compile notes during my playtime and update you guys as soon as NDA is lifted. Will also give insight as to whether or not 3.0 actually is the patch they said it would be, and whether or not this is the time to get into the game (if you haven't already). Cheers.
  3. Just saw my name tagged on this. SC has had no movement this year. We're expecting 3.0 alpha this month, will update if/when there's any movement.
  4. Rofl - I have hung up my raiding hat, unfortunately. Glad to see the oldies are still sticking around though!
  5. Wtf is this list - Grizz, Fuhma, Nav, Mali, Nano, I heard all of these people were dead
  6. This is the big patch from CIG that the players have been waiting for. In my opinion, this is the patch that finally makes the game "worth playing". Sincerely recommend keeping an eye on updates as this patch progresses - they're aiming for periodic releases throughout 2017, starting as early as June. Full schedule and announcement here: https://robertsspaceindustries.com/schedule-report As I've mentioned to those of you interested about the game - this is the patch that will make the game worthy of the early access costs. Will include (but not limited to): Planetary Landings (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) New moon bases to explore/land on Character Customization Ship releases (highly anticipated ships to come) Shopping/Cargo/Trade implemented Additional missions More Derelict Ships/Debris Fields to explore Alpha release of the "insurance" system will be out - this is how destroyed ships will be restored, etc. (really important to get a first look at this) Performance improvements Networking Optimizations (Stretch Goal) Delamar/Levski - New planet (Delamar), with major landing zone/port (Levski) I won't overhype the game, but there's some very big things to look forward to here. Get at me with questions, or if you want more clarification on these points (always happy to offer my opinion on whether or not anyone would like the game based on your interests). Cheers
  7. Another starter-pack sale is going on for the Holidays - lots left! https://robertsspaceindustries.com/pledge/Packages/Aurora-MR-SC-Starter-Holiday-Warbond-Edition
  8. Persistent Universe has been around for a few patches now, since around 2.0 Still not as "persistent" as it will be at release because there's no way to permanently steal ships, no cargo (yet), etc. But you can do loads in the current PU.

  10. Yeah, unfortunately they only open up a certain amount at a time
  11. Discounted package here: https://robertsspaceindustries.com/pledge/Packages/Aurora-MR-SC-Starter-UEE-Warbond-Version
  12. Looks like only 1 of the packages was discounted, but still $10 off the normal price. https://robertsspaceindustries.com/pledge/Packages/Aurora-MR-SC-Starter-UEE-Warbond-Version
  13. No link available directly to the discounted packages yet, but you can find the overview of all packages here: https://robertsspaceindustries.com/pledge/game-packages Anything labeled as "starter" or that has "Star Citizen Digital Download" listen in the *Contains* column will be covered by the discount - you will see "+Squadron 42" on some, and that's just the campaign mode which is supplemental to the full game (not required, but I recommend it because they're doing some massive work on it with actors like Gary Oldman, Mark Hamill, etc.). Edit: I will make an updated post with links directly to the discounts when they come up!
  14. Star Citizen is having its yearly "Anniversary Sale" to celebrate the last day of their crowdfunding on Kickstarter. As such, they do all kinds of ship sales that allow you purchase ships that aren't normally available year-round. In addition to that, they are selling the game packages at a discounted rate on Nov. 26th starting at 1pm PST. These packages will get you full access to the game, full access the Alpha, and a ship (or two) to fly around and customize. If you were thinking about backing the game before release, but don't want to shell out $60+, then now is your chance. No confirmation on the price points yet, but last year they were $20-$30. In addition, patch 2.6 is expected to release by the end of this year. That will include the "Star Marine" FPS game-mode, which looks fantastic. These packages get you full access to everything in the alpha. If you're still waiting for a fully fleshed out, zero-bug, "complete package" game - now is not the time to purchase. (I would wait until the official release of 3.0 in the alpha, or the official release of the game as a whole.) However, if you want access to the game in it's current and all future states, this is the time to do it. Feel free to bug me if you have questions!
