I don't wanna clutter up the thread too much, so I'll just make this one post and see if there is interest. If there is, we should make a new Shiny thread.

This is Chris Roberts.



He made the Wing Commander series.



The last game in the series, Freelancer, was going to be something of his final vision of a space sim. Unfortunately, his studio was bought out by Microsoft before the game was done, Microsoft did what Microsoft does, and the rest is history.

About 8 months ago, Roberts came out of hiding with a kickstarter to remake Freelancer in his own studio. He asked for $500k, mainly to demonstrate to investors that there was interest in the game. As of this morning, he has raised $12.6M in pledges.

So what is the game? Overly ambitious. Add Privateer and Wing Commander together. Add some FPS and some EVE Online to the mix. Borrow the instancing system from Star Trek Online.

Here is the original pitch:



I mention it now because there is a pledge cutoff date approaching on 6 July. I didn't mention it before because the whole game seemed very pie-in-the-sky. Through demonstration of in-game assets, the near-term development plan, and other aspects, I'm now convinced this game will actually make it to market in one form or the other.

So if you liked Tie Fighter, or Wing Commander, or EVE Online, take a look.

Go to worldoftanks.com and sign in using your BUNBUN48 account.

Then in the top right corner you will see an envelope. Select that and it should take you to the place to accept your invitation.

100% Increased Credit Income for all Tier V and VI Vehicles
This does not appear to apply to my Premium vehicles. Neither my RamII nor my T14 are receiving the 100% credit increase bonus. Anybody else notice this?

Looks like just another "Whoops, go back and edit that!" by Wargaming. When I copied it over yesterday it said what I pasted. Sounds like you need the reading glasses comprehension stuff -- which makes sense with you being a commie Canuck and all. OH ZING!

Man, been a lonely morning in the TS. None of this yet:
