I'll Humour you with a RP response.
Due to the recent lull in Activity and the lack of.......... Ah screw it...
While I can't speak for anyone else here, I personally have all but entirely swapped over to starmade until Q3/Q4 (it IS Q3, and almost Q4 funnily enough) to see if the devs would maintain the soft and hard release date they said they had (Soft release date Q3, hard Q4). I've been checking in on Blockade runner every day in the hope that something major would pop up and nothing has. As a result of this, I've been playing Starmade a lot more since it's far more functional.
I'll wait to see at the end of the year if BR is comparable to starmade in terms of actual gameplay (not style), and if it is then I will particpate once more in this thread and forums, but if not, i'll swap over to starmade.
TLDR; if theres a release by the end of the year we'll talk. If not, I'm out.
