  • Was CIG’s CCU charge another thinly-veiled money grab by CIG? Or was it a combination of bad messaging and whining from backers who see a loophole being closed, or at least narrowed?
  • Relatedly, do you think the Eclipse buzz and marketing was effective? Are you going to be adding one or more to your hangar?

    Wonderful job everyone.

    cq: Bad messaging/mechanism. I like the idea of the credits devaluing over time.As for the eclipse, wonderful ship, but you should already know my thoughts on a $275 ship.
