    Big dog s**t. CIG once talks about store changes like when the Super Hornet, a non-permanent-on-sale ship, was going to change in price and then, without saying anything prior,  they remove a permanent-on-sale-ship like the Redeemer which many people used for their CCU's (not only the 0 dollar ones).

    "Free" Rebel Galaxy on GoG
    If you do any purchase until June 20th 2:59PM CEST, you get the great little space game Rebel Galaxy for free. So overall it's not free, but with their summer sale going on , you can get Rebel Galaxy and like one of the Wing Commander titles for example together for 1.49 USD.
    Here is a link to the game itself:

    It's a great title to play until there is more to do in SC.

    We should not get confused with other streamers or take their ideas. But good brainstorming Benji! From all of them, I like "The Escape Pod Show" the most.
  7. Groth added a post in a topic Organisation Stream   

    general:
    Intro: "Welcome to TacAttack, the weekly advance into the unknown world of Star Citizen. This week's topics are ..."
    - making a brand for ourselves (being different than other podcasts and weekly SC shows). We are competing with at least 10 other podcasts around SC and we have to get a sizable audience over time to promote the org.
    - segmented show ( This week in Tactical Advance, News around Star Citizen and the community, Introducing ( parts of the org ), discussion segment (big things, not esp related to this weeks news. Q&A segment)
    - fun and professional
    - focus on the whole TA community
    - not overloaded (big discussion topics and introductions are planned ahead (schedule wise)
    - host and co-hosts ( co-hosts are normally only a smaller part in moderation, but are trained over time to step in if the main host is sick or on vacation and are still able to keep the professional level up)
    - a weekly rotation of guests from the org and maybe other guests around the game (pact founder, CIG devs, big faces of the community)
    - intro with royalty free music, so we can put it up on YT
    - clean and maybe segment specific overlays (switched within short brakes in the show between segments)
     
    ,  possible segments for this week:
    - TA News: Writing contest, promotions, new members, member spotlight (VIP), promoting TA content creators
    - SC News: PC Games article, road to Gamescom, 2.5 and the future, Gurmukh Bhasin leaves CIG, Britizencon, Stuff from this weeks Lore Post, ATV, RTV
    - Introduction. Introduction of one of our divisions (task inside the org, size, leader and hierarchy, subsections, activity)
    - discussion: discussing one or more hot topics this week further or topics that have nothing to do with this weeks reveal like a game mechanic, ships or ship classes, general game development discussion, what's hot? (activities including other games), ...
    - Q&A segment: questions from the viewers

    Welcome to the Org!
  10. Groth added a post in a topic Master of Orion - By Wargaming - worth it?   

    Definitly not for full price.
    I got a cheap copy at Kinguin for 23Eur, but i would not buy it for more than 30, even in the package with MoO 1, 2 and 3.
    With a lot of competitors from the last few years (Sins of a Solar Empire, Star Ruler 1+2, Star Drive 2, Endless Space incl. Addon, Galactic Civilizations 3 incl. DLC's, Distant Worlds, ...) and incoming competitors from this year (Endless Space 2, M.O.R.E., Stellaris, Polaris Sector, ...) it is definitly not in the Top5. While it is not a totally underwhelming game like some other recent titles, like Horizon or Lords of the Black Sun, it lacks at it's current state a lot of funktionalities, like Espionage, Government types, Heroes, Unit XP, tactical combat in MP,... . It has, at least in SP, more active and tactical battles than many competitors, but the empire building lacks a lot. Also from what i saw in the last days you get quite fast to the late techs, which is also a negative for me.
    There will be some changes before the release in 3 month, but i doubt they will add many core features before any DLC or Addon realease way in the future. Better get one of the other titles on sale.

  13. Groth added a post in a topic Around the verse Episode 2.07   

    Main differences are it's "open" development, crowdfunded and several times dates were given. It's at least a year behind one of the last schedules given and the are quite secretive about their future plans beyond 2.0. No dates are needed, but more, way more, information, if they expect to get more funding. Without the leak in may the situation would be even worse. That gave us at least lots of information about the state of the modelling at that time. I am aware of all you wrote. I do watch and read the same sources. 
  14. Groth added a post in a topic Around the verse Episode 2.07   

    Wasn't writing about 2.0. I meant general development status of certain things. They promised for example a new ship status page, but that isn't out yet. Some comments in the different CIG shows and postings were a bit frightening. For example that they are still in concept phase for some essential game mechanics after 3 years.
  15. Groth added a post in a topic Around the verse Episode 2.07   

    I wished they would give us some real informations. Was a bit like "same old, same old". I really hope the new game development status page will come up very soon. The states told to us of the ships in general and the planet locations sound a bit scary.
  16. Groth added a post in a topic So....what ship do you have?   

    Superhornet, Const. Taurus and Mustang Omega.

    Hello fellow citizens,
    my name is Andreas, i'm 29 years old and i'm from Freiburg in southern Germany.
    I'm a huge SciFi fan. ( ST, SG, B5, BSG, ... ) . Regarding games i play a lot of WoT and AW at the moment, but i play and am interested in so many more games (3300+ on steam). Regarding genres, i like RTS and RBS the most, but also FPS,TPS,RPG's and other genres.
    I backed SC during the first week of the Kickstarter campaign because i loved games like Freelancer and the X-Series and always wanted to share that X-experience with others. EVE just wasn't my thing, too much like "a RTS with only one unit" for me. I also was a bit burned out from MMO's because until summer 2010 i played A LOT (1y ingame time) of WoW in a competitive guild and had many internal positions like class officer, officer and even guild leader when the main leader needed to take some personal time.
    With the announcement of Alpha 2.0 i thought now was the right time to search an organized group and since i mentioned TA while talking to friends so many of them now want to join too.
    If you want to know more, just ask me here or in the TS3.
    See you in the Verse
