I really have high hopes for this game. I loved WC back in the day as well as Star- and Freelancer, and adored the latter especially.

Pity that the free testing phase is only for new subscribers and I don't really want to create a new account just to try it for a few days...

What do you guys reckon. As the game gets closer and closer to release, I start yearning more for something better than my old Logitec Extreme and Force 3D joysticks. I have my heart set on the X-55 Rhino. However. What if the Star Citizen/Saitek hotas is awesome. Do you guys think those panels will have LCD's that tie into the game and provide status displays and the like? Or do you think that's marketing fluff. I'm just scared and want to avoid buyers remorse. I know it an be a powerful regret at times.

Check out the green writing. I was told (and read online) that this would be some sort of "beta tryout" to fly around in a limited area.

I think the free testing phase is an opportunity get Non backers to back the game. They get to demo the game for free. And if they like it they then pledge.. At least that's what I am understanding.

Well it's "suboptimal" that you have to create a new account if you already have one without backing the game, for instance if you merely wanted to be kept up to date with the newsletter.

I wonder if its because CIG just deletes accounts that have no packages tied to it.
