Derek Smart Does not Represent the Star Citizen Community

Recommended Posts

He tries to subvert the development process, claims to represent us. But in fact he is none other than one of the very vocal few (and non-constructive) ex-backer of Star Citizen and a horrendous game producer with a terribad track record at it.

Please sign here if you agree and detest his acts of sabotage.

Lol, gonna report his vaporware with that picture as reason.

Btw @Genesis damn bro, you've got LoD on your wishlist. Better fix that.

It's funny that even the most "positive" reviews are actually negative reviews.

Read His response to the open letter..

 

http://guardfrequency.com/an-open-letter-to-derek-smart/

This guy even wrote it without being offense. Nice one.
If Derek is going to continue after that letter, it's double definite that he's a stubborn, brainless troll.

This is Derek Smarts answer:

So yeah, he's indeed a stubborn, brainless troll.

Can someone who writes something so immature as DS even file for legal action, I know he can but if I were a judge I'd think of this as a waste of my time, more important people to prosacute!

Is that for real? He really responded to that well made letter with this?
Well, yeah, worthless troll. I'd request we all stop giving him (or it?) any kind of attention from now on. Don't post anything about him, don't read his crap, just deny his existence. He's going to die within an hour then.
I already feel disgusted by wasting my time for reading his response.
From now on he's classified as dead to me.

The letter was very well written and addressed, and although D.Smart did respond very poorly to it, perhaps a thread on their page a little bit further down the page titled "Guard Frequency Episode 081 | The Church of Chris Roberts" and the following picture helped compose the response?

I'm not siding with Derek Smart by ANY MEANS.  I'm just wondering if we were all to be mature adults and not feed the flames that perhaps he would go away...  Or maybe not.

 

(EDIT:  Is it wrong that I laughed a little bit too long when I first saw the above picture?)

I'm only curious how much time he's dedicated to LoD in the past six months. Because he either doesn't sleep like Elon Musk or....no, fuck that. Elon Musk gets almost no sleep and is incredibly productive. DS only produces inflammatory tripe. That's right, Derek Smart is a bleeding ulcer.

He does know how to attract people attention.

Anyway, he is free to do whatever he decides but this may backfire on him.

In his article he claims he has grounds to charge CIG for defamation. 
Reality is he is the one that actually should be worried about that.

He is the one that has made accusations regarding some employees personal lives.
He is the one that started making accusations without proof to back them.

In one of his previous blog posts http://www.dereksmart.org/2015/07/interstellar-discourse/  , he makes a direct attack on Sandi and Eric for instance.

The fact or not that Sandi is Chris Roberts wife is completely irrelevant.

His accusations and personal attacks to CIG employees were done prior to any reaction from CIG. 

If he does want to turn this into a legal battle, CIG may end up being forced to disclose information. But if proven "innocent", CIG is in every right to accuse Derek Smart and request a compensation for the damages he has inflicted to CIG image.

It's all a matter of burden of proof.

If he sues ( and most likely he won't) he has no legal cause for action ( he has been refunded), he has to prove or at least give very very good cause for suspicion that there has been money mishandling using only his sources ( very hard to do) and at best he can aim for a refund ( yeah...).

If things go DS way ( dreamy lil world I know): he keeps prodding CR/Sandi/CIG until they sue him, then if they say that he is slandering them about mismanaging the money the burden of proof is on them and they have to open the books in order to show it ( which is what he wants). On top of that being sued opens the door for contersuing and damage compensations and rumors say he's a lil short on cash.

Luckily CIG has a quite good and well known lawyer as a cofouner so I doubt they will fall for it.

BTW the fact CIG doesn't want to show the books means nothing: even if everything is in order ( like I believe) he will start riling poeople and bitching at their choices until the game is out ( why they rented here and not there, why this guy is getting this much money, hiring that studio would have been better, who is in the cast for SQ42), giving him fuel for ages for the flame wars he is so famous for.

 

As a further note, to all that think that, well, in the  end, it's a good thing if CIG shows the books in the name of being open: this guy says he is doing it in our name, for justice and fairness.

And is plan to achieve that is that CR should step down and hand his accounting books to a forensic ( as in: specialist about finding iregualarities) accountant, which DS, as the chief of a rival enterprise ( he keeps comparing LOD to SC) and as a man with a long querelle with CR, would graciously have on his payroll ( he said he would pay for it).

Like if Burger King said that unless the head concho of MC Donalds resigns and they hand them their accounting books they will sue them for whatever reason.

All fair and square, really......

      “Hmm, well, this patch is not too big, the video should not be very long” 
      - Me
      Greetings, citizens! 
      Every time, when I start to do a comparison video of old and new Star Citizen patches, I look at the Roadmap - and I say this phrase to myself. And every time, when I say this phrase to myself, the comparison video is longer and more complex than the previous ones.
      The new video was no exception - the duration increased to 19 minutes. But I tried to make sure that you - those who will watch this - did not have time to get bored during those 19 minutes.
      Also, I reworked the design and methods of presenting the comparisons - now there are no more boring white words or numbers. And I tried to dilute the usual comparisons (slice from left to right) with other techniques (and in the future I will try to do it even more often).
      By the way, about the new flight model - I show this not entirely, but only that, which catches my eye immediately. I tried to reflect this not only with the video and sounds, but also with a demonstration of controls. The rest of the details (such as strafe, or dogfight, or any other) I left for you - check it in the game.
      I hope you enjoy this video, as well as the change of design and presentation. Enjoy watching!

      Greetings, citizens!
      Recently, one guy suggest the idea of this video, and to break a long silence (while I was doing other big projects), I decided to realize this idea.
      The UEES Razor’s Edge patrol ship was ambushed during a patrol and was badly damaged. The surviving team must do something, or they all gonna die - this is the starting point for this video.
      I hope you will enjoy it!
