Take a break, go review Cuck.

That's how I feel when I'm talking to some of the kids in the art scene about the Rodney King riots and realize to them it would be like some old timer talking to me about the old Watts riots.

Which means it's probably about time for another Watts riot?

And I'm "catching up" on this thread, reading 2+ year-old posts since I last did.

I think the riots caught up this year.

You've got to admire the sophistication of the emergent gameplay that results from a realistic simulation that monitors the heat generated by the friction of your suit against the fuel lines as you're spinning madly inside the airframe to the point that the fuel catches fire.  lrn2play nub   why so serious?

First post in months and its about star citizen. Help me.

So I was looking at something on Newsweek and as I clicked off the page I beheld the words "Star Citizen" leaping off the page like some damned Siren singing and promising sexxx with some fat guy in a Khasakstan scam center who is running 10 guys in different windows.

Naturally I could not resist so I gave newsweek the extra click.

'Star Citizen' Assault on Stanton Live Event Starts Soon With Idris Battle
By Christopher Groux On 12/22/20 at 8:44 AM EST

Star Citizen has a major live event in the works, and it's starting over the next few days. Dubbed the Assault on Stanton, players will seemingly work together to fight against a fleet of some of the game's most powerful Capital Ships.

Have you ever wondered what it might be like to go toe to toe with an Idris? You'll soon get your chance. The event was announced via a short teaser trailer debuted on the game's social media channel's on Monday afternoon.

Following the launch of the Alpha 3.12 Assault on Stanton update, player-controlled fleets will soon take aim at an intergalactic terrorist organization called the XenoThreat. The group has most of the game's most powerful spacecraft lined up and ready to wage war on the Stanton System that millions of pilots in the Persistent Universe call home.

However, unlike the live events popularized by games like Fortnite, Star Citizen's take on the concept will roll out in phases over several days, with the first step beginning sometime this week.

And, in true Star Citizen fashion, it's not entirely clear just how long the rollout of these phases will actually take. In essence, the trajectory of the event depends on the type of in-game offensive players are able to mount. Should the heaviest of firepower come in quickly, it's possible the event could end somewhat rapidly, while a less formidable force might mean a more protracted war is required.

'Star Citizen's first big live event starts soon. A fleet of the game's toughest ships is about to descend on Stanton. 'Star Citizen' is in development on PC. Cloud Imperium Games

Regardless of how long the fight takes, the Assault on Stanton event is perhaps the most developed version of the kind of action Star Citizen's creators at Cloud Imperium Games have promised over the last decade of active tool designing and technology building.

For the first time, the game's Persistent Universe will feature large-scale encounters against powerful AI foes. Especially for the project's millions-strong backers, hopefully this high-profile test is just the beginning of a much larger showcase of AI-controlled ships and in-game storylines. To access the event, all players need to do is log in and check out the latest update from the Civilian Defense Force.

The Assault on Stanton event arrives shortly after the deployment of Star Citizen's Alpha 3.12 update. The feature-rich download offers the first version of a reputation system, new gas cloud locations and additional ships like the Esperia Talon and Esperia Talon Strike variant. While larger additions like the highly anticipated Pyro system wait in the wings, many of the features listed in update 3.12 prepare players for entering the pirate-dominated territory.

Star Citizen is in development on PC.

Literally nobody who isn't already an extremely invested SC fan has ever wondered this.

I 'follow' the game and I have zero idea what an Idris is, or even that something called an Idris existed before now.

Idris Elba would kick my Irish ass, and I don't mind admitting it.

Haven't a clue what the SC version is, and don't care much.

The Idris is one of the capital ships they sold for $1000+ (think at least one version was $1500 or something) and still isn't available for people to actually use themselves years later.

Anyhow, this event has been delayed until the beginning of the year. Hope everyone has been practicing their "shocked" faces.

There was some shit on Reddit about a trial run of this where the ship in question got stuck clipped inside a space station for the last third of the battle so it was just everybody shooting it while it helplessly squirmed inside the station.

The irony of fleecing people for $1000-1500 for a video game ship...and then using it to kill them while not letting them have access to it themselves...

That's next level sadism, I'm impressed.

Looked at the Star Citizen Reddit today as I was bored. Saw this

Some general tips that can improve your SC experience and make it less frustrating. Most applies across patches.



This is a game with over 100 Million dollars and half a decade in development.

A lot of these really read like the fake, April Fools Patch Notes a lot of games put out. And people keep giving these guys money.

I was one of those nutjobs that enjoyed Wildstar. Right until I realised how out of touch the devs really were.

At least it released unlike this trainwreck.
