In this video, SaltEMike reacts to the claim that Star Citizen has lost 90 percent of its players. He dismisses the claim, highlighting the limitations of the featured footage and suggesting factors that could contribute to the lower player count, while also expressing his desire for the game to focus more on gameplay elements rather than just spaceships.
In this video, SaltEMike reacts to a claim that Star Citizen has lost 90 percent of its players. He begins by mentioning his previous reactions to Gem Reviews’ videos about Star Citizen being the “Starfield killer.” He points out that the footage shown is from the Public Test Universe (PTU) and not the live servers, indicating that it is not a fair representation of the player base. The video creator argues that Starfield is scratching some itches for him, but it’s a single-player game, unlike Star Citizen, which offers player interaction and other features.
SaltEMike dismisses the claim of a 90 percent player base loss, stating that only 10 people are currently playing. He highlights that this number doesn’t accurately reflect the entire player base and mentions various factors that may contribute to the lower player count, such as time of day, PTU fatigue, and the availability of other games like Starfield. He also notes that he personally wants to explore other games due to the slow progress of Star Citizen.
While acknowledging that the video title may be clickbait, SaltEMike still finds value in discussing the game and its player base. He believes that Star Citizen needs to understand what its player base is truly interested in, which might be more focused on gameplay elements rather than just spaceships. He appreciates the immersion of landing on planets and in space stations in Starfield compared to the excessive travel required in Star Citizen.
SaltEMike finds humor in the claim of a 90 percent player base loss and jokes about the company losing all its money. He concludes by expressing the hope that Star Citizen learns from this experience and improves its game accordingly.
