Title: Guardians on the Fence (Mon Nov 6th at 6:30 PM Pacific)

So you've seen us in the forum and Discord salivating over digital space ships, speculating over the finer points of cargo capacity, theorycrafting over weapon hardpoints, or pining for the release of the next patch to  arguably the most ambitious video game ever... and you're curious about it. Maybe you're on the fence about it but you've checked out the main Star Citizen website and you are more confused than when you started.

It's okay. The new player experience at the moment is not ideal, but for those of us who've been here since day one, we know the ins and outs and want to help. And if we don't, we'll find it.

So on November 6th in TeamSpeak (https://http://www.teamspeak.com/en/downloads.html), we'd like to give you the opportunity to bring your questions and have a casual chat with your fellow Guardians. There are no stupid questions. Anything from the game, the community, the media, or the machine you need to run it is up for topic. Let's help you with at least an understanding.. and maybe by the end of it, you'll consider hopping over that proverbial fence. After all, we might need you to do the same for another Guardian sitting on the exact fence you are now.

We do ask before the date of, please leave a comment and say whether you can come. Got questions you want to queue up for us? Feel free to provide them. I also set up a Calendar event with an RSVP up top that may or may not work properly (my first time setting that up). If you don't feel it worked right, just comment below.

Want to attend and as a guru on a particular subject or just want to help out? Sylent Jay, Meridian, and the others could definitely use you! Remember, any question. Don't be shy. Your question could also be on the mind of ten other people.

*NEW!*
At the risk of internet vandalism, I have opened a editable Google doc to supplement our discussion in real time. In case you can't get a question in verbally because someone else is hogging the mic, you can enter it in the doc below. I've started a spread of basic questions to get the ball rolling, but feel free to start adding your own. We'll do our best to get to everyone's questions in the course of about 90 minutes, but of course if you just want to drop in and out somewhere in the middle, no prob. Think of these as an interactive form of meeting minutes. If it works, we'll do this for future events like this.

I've also suggested that this could be an excellent opportunity to invite non-guildies who might be interested in SC or who just want to know how you could be so spun up for a game that's been in development for so long. I know a couple of people who I'll be inviting. Can't say whether they'll make it, but it could be a great way to kindle some interest in joining up.

I will try to make it just to hang out but that will be after working 10 days straight, the last 5 being over 12 hour shifts so I may just sleep, lol. Glad you are doing this, I may get back into SC in December (I have the month off). Depends how far ahead it has progressed.

I have absolutely no idea what STAR CITIZEN is, or when it comes out...but I've heard a lot about it from Mad so I'll be on with a million questions.

Hopefully 3.0 will be out for you to get lost in.

We're glad to see ya back, Brish!

And I'm happy to see the turnout in RSVP's thus far. Hope to see you all and more! Assuming it goes well, we'll certainly try and do more in the future to fit schedules.

I added a few questions to the sheet, including one I think I'd probably be asking if I were on the fence right now: Is the game ever going to be finished?

FWIW, I think it will, but it's a reasonable question in light of the kind of press SC tends to get, and one I think we should address up front.

Hi guys,

In case it wasn't clear, we'll be hopping into TeamSpeak for this. Make sure you've got the latest version if you haven't already.

Thank you all for coming tonight!

I think we can safely say we sold Fayt Cloud on it. ;) When you're ready to go through the purchasing process, let me know and I will happily walk ya through it.

Same with you, Zoologic and Vampyre. I'll happily schedule time to chat more with you guys if you have questions.

We may have to put something similar to this together around the time 3.0 drops. If it really is the leap forward that CIG is trying to make it, there could be a big bump/resurgence in interest just based on the press I expect it to get.

Family first. Also, we had it covered, it was ten people who are champing at the bit for 3.0 and Fayt Cloud  ;D

I think you're right. Though I got another idea stewing. :)
