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.

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......

      Greetings, citizens!
      To my surprise, many people really liked my last video. And people in comments was asked me to make the night version. But I didn't do this, because I believe that the original work has already been completed, and I can't to redo it or make a copy of it.
      However, I found a much more interesting solution - I made a timelapse video with the surroundings of the Lorville!
      I tried to find interesting perspectives and solutions, and I hope that it will be interesting for you to watch this video.
      Like my other timelapses, this video is available in 4K and 60 FPS.
      Enjoy watching!

      Greetings citizens!
      With the start of testing the 3.3.5 patch, we were finally given the first large planet in the game - Hurston. 6 biomes, 1/6 of the real size of Earth and, of course, the city of Lorville, which looks like one big reference to the films of the “Blade Runner” series.
      It was hard to resist and not make this video. I tried to complete the video with interesting angles and shots. However, please note that this is not a review of Lorville - this is just an cinematic artistic video in the style of the film.
      Enjoy watching!

      Greetings citizens!
      Start 3.3 was delayed by more than a month, but finally we received an update on the Live-server (although not everyone can play because of 15006).
      I started to prepare this video on September 29, and this is the largest and most complex video I've ever done before - 133 gigabytes of materials will not allow me to lie.
      I present to you the comparison of the previous and current patches - 3.2.2 and 3.3.
      Enjoy watching!
      P.S. The time of each topic is written in main commentary on YouTube - to find the right moment was more convenient!

      Greetings Fellow Star Citizens, Dreamers, Lovers Of Space, and Gamers.
       
      Today is my birthday and I am super excited! There's so much to look forward to in life and experience. As I was wrapping up playing in the PTU server for the night with a fellow Imperium member, I ran across a youtube video about an Eve Online War. I said screw it and watched it because I was taking a break. And I have to say honestly it scared the shit out of me. It was video regarding a war between Imperium and an alliance of players. The question that popped immediately into my head was (is this the Imperium I am in or in any way related to?). There was a lot of drama involved and some players even threatening each others lives (in real life). This so called "war" that was in an online game (let me remind you not real life) had turned so hostile and toxic that people had to get permanently banned from the game as well as having developers step in. This was all due to an entire organization was basically led by one guy who could be pretty much called a psychopath (mittiah or something)?. I am not trying to get you guys to read into this too much but I am really concerned about the future of Imperium, Star Citizen, other Organizations, and the community growing as a whole.
       
      I want Star Citizen to be a fun and inviting place, besides organizations such as Imperium. To keep our happy thoughts of space and exploring it inside pure. I hope to god that Star Citizen does not turn into EVE Online 2.0. Between the shitty ship models and the extremely toxic community, I am worried that this will somehow seep into Star Citizen when it launches. With people going to citizen con not to have a good time and enjoy the game but create petty rivalries and hate for no reason. Even though I am a young man, I have already experienced what immature. emotinally undeveloped adults are. It has to be one of the scariest things Ive ever run into (the first time being my step-father). My fear also lies into these kind of people not only showing up in the Star Citizen Community, Citizen Con, In-game, etc. But also perhaps being in Imperium? Let me be very clear I do not believe any current members resemble the toxic EVE Online community. However I fear they may end up in our organization and others that we are alliance to as Star Citizen gets more developed/closer to its release. Perhaps I am overthinking/overreacting. But I have to say, deep within my heart and soul I would be devastated if any of this kind of hate/anger/petty bullshit entered into our beloved Star Citizen Game. Whether it is between organizations or the community. I hope the developers of star citizen make sure there is no way other players can manipulate our organization, other organizations, the game, or people's ships/properties in any sort of way. I also hope that no player in our organization abuses their rights of command or manipulates our organization that would bring harm to it, our players, the game, or the community in any way.

      In reality this is just food for thought. But after watching that crappy video it really hit home and made me worry about what will Imperium become, what is the future of star citizen, and what will be the community? I guess it is what we make it?
       
      Please respond and let me know what you guys think because it would mean a lot to me if we could have a serious talk about this. Its legit keeping me up.
       
      Incase anyone is curious regarding the videos I watched that gave me worry, here are the following 2 links:

      Greetings, citizens!
      The last CitizenCon was very eventful.
      But, not every people have time to watch the every presentations, or at least the Opening Keynote, which duration is two hours.
      And I, by tradition, do a brief squeeze of what was on the main presentation - you can call it a trailer, or a retelling. In any case, for those who can't (or don't want) to watch the full Opening Keynote, such a format (in the dynamic “trailer” cut) will work better. Feel free to share this video with those who have not yet watched the presentation!
