Let smugglers run blockades! Give us access to Guild Ships that we can show off on cruises! Let me team up with dozens of fighter pilots to take down Guild Ships from the opposing faction! Create Flashpoints and Battlegrounds around space combat!

I know it's a lot of work, but you won't hit a stable couple of million + subs without something this big and unique. Star Wars without space is like Game of Thrones without female characters.
Yeah, I'm really excited about that game. I hate that its two years out.

I have only two things to say: XWING, and XvT. It's a no brainer, or should be. Mission based, open space multiplayer combat. It's just not as hard as everyone seems to be making out.
I am an international man of mystery... or am I

Star Citizen is about to break the 5 million barrier and is now the biggest privately funded game project IN HISTORY!

If you get in quick and fund it before the Kickstarter ends (it ends today!) you will get Alpha and Beta access - playing the game much sooner than that

It's heading towards six million lol, I remember when swtor came out, people where quick to say space is a niche and nobody would play it, if it was too complex.(this game needed swimming and the ability to sit in chairs first, and space wasn't a big deal lol)

I wish bioware would leak a clip of the super secret space project.(just to quench my need for 3d space combat)

Yep. Exactly as I predicted. Obviously were better than the game analyst suits. Same goes for sandbox MMOs, as I predicted. And most suits are still dreaming about tablet games, mobile/social network games and copying the WoW concept.

I'd say how much I went in for but if I put it in writing, I know my wife would somehow find out ...
