The longer they delay, the more they can milk out of their fanbase. Seems pretty obvious, from the outside looking in.
Yep. They also are completely pay to win... Who would ever want to join as a new player without spending the money to keep up? Bad all around.

I think the opposite will happen. Ships which cost hundreds of $ in donations now will be remarkably easy to new players to earn. Otherwise like you said, new players wouldn’t play, especially against people with LTI ships...

lol you hve no clue how the game is made. It will eventually wear away from pw2 even more than it already has.... as is, you can alrady buy the ships in game with money,..... which with any decent ship takes only a couple days. So..... grind for two weeks with an avenger Titan ($50) to get a caterpillar ($300), the ngrind foir 3 days with a cat to guy literally any iother ship (1000+).'

It will reset on a major patch, but.... just rinse and repeat. You dont need to spend $1000+ for nice stuff ALREADY. The game will noly get easier.\
The difference is if you spend cash, its permanent at his pint intime durin resets, and will have some features hwen the game is released *eventually in 30 years* that yuou will be able to purchase with in game credits at that point anyway.

So what you are saying is that in less than a month, someone with a basic ship can buy everything in the game. Though I think the doing and seeing everything there is to do/see in the same amount of time is the much bigger problem.

When it comes to how easy it is to acquire these expensive ships in the finished game*, it's going to be a hard needle to thread - if they take too much grinding to obtain then the game might effectively be pay-to-win, and if they are too easy to obtain then you could end up with everyone flying around in ships that the heavy backers paid several hundred dollars (or significantly more) for.

* At this point let's just assume, for the sake of this argument, that the game does actually get finished.

I suspect when the game launches officially (we'll assume it will) grinding to get those new ships will be a grind. Lower tiers might not be too hard but it will scale up progressively and those big capital ships will not be easy to get in game. IMO a grindy game is very grindy and SC won't be any different. The solo player will have to grind hard. Players in good Orgs will probably have it a bit easier perhaps. We'll have to wait and see how it works out.
