Batsman Citizen is regularly sold a legates package — with almost all digital ships that exist in the MMO. The massive SF epic has still no release date. The latest package now explores the price limits — $40,000, more than €35,000, wants to have CIG for the package. The package was created on request of the fans, it was 2018.
What is in the package in it?
The exact content of Legates 2951 is not clear at the moment, but one can greatly suspect due to earlier offers that almost all ships and upgrades that exist in Star Citizen will be included. The predecessor package; Legal Pack 2950 (Läppische $ 36,500), covered more than 150 ships and all possible upgrades, items and special services. To buy the package, you must first be a member of the Chairman's Club. To get in there, you have to spent $1,000 in the game.
Price for largest package rose from $15,000 to $40,000
How has the price of this package developed over time?
The price was steadily up:
Star Citizen offered a Completions package before 1. Legates package, with every ship in the game, for $15,000.
In May 2018, the package with 117 ships and 163 other contents still cost $27,000 In December 2019 there was the 2949 Legates Pack for $35,000 The Legates Pack 2950 then cost $36,500 The new package will cost $40,000
What does Star Citizen say to the package? As CIG 2018 for the first time this package offered, you have explained in an interview, what's behind:
The new package was offered at the request of the hardcore part of the community. So the package was not incurred in a vacuum, but in response to a demand.
You have very passionate supporters who do not see on Star Citizen as a typical game, but who perceive it as a dream project from which you want it really comes.
How is that discussed? The general attitude in the Reddit of Star Citizen is a bit of snappy cynicism to shew wise. There are statements like:
For the money you can accommodate and feed a developer for 6 to 8 months. Please think of the developers. Hey, thank you. I did not see that at all. I bought one for me, my wife and my dog! A user quotes a well-known meme: Shut Up and Take My... Moment, how much should cost?! There is no ship in it, that's just the picture of a ship pack! — The comment plays on a current controversy that Star Citizen as Giveaway no ships give away, but only wallpapers of ships.
In general, these packages can be seen more relaxed in the community. The tenor is: You can only fly a ship anyway, and it is not necessary to get each ship in the game.
What's up with a release date? Bad. After star Citizen named release data, which you then cashed, no more official data is giving out. A roadmap, when to which new content is to come, ranges at the moment to the end of 2023, but a release is not in sight.
At the moment Star Citizen is playable in a test version, which is expanded about every 3 months with a new update.
Why new MMOs about crowdfunding like star citizen frustrate us so
