This Week in Star Citizen
October 5th, 2020

Happy Monday, everyone!

If you don’t already know, we’re currently in Wave 1 of 3.11 PTU! We hope you’ve enjoyed your first look at everything 3.11, both in game if you have access and on Twitch or Youtube living vicariously through your favorite creators if you don’t, and as usual we want to thank everyone who has played so far and helped us test! All your hard work navigating the (sometimes choppy) waters of early PTU has been invaluable in our effort to clean it up for a smooth live release. We’re looking forward to opening PTU to a larger audience later tonight!

We announced winners to two different contests last week, and I’d definitely recommend checking both out. As usual, y’all crushed it with your amazing, creative entries and it was so difficult to pick our victors. Check out dastardly deeds and lawless gameplay with the winners of the Fly like a Pirate screenshot contest winners here. We had an overwhelming amount of submissions for Phase 1 of Ship Showdown this year, but we managed to narrow it down to a handful of outstanding creations in our Top 10 Ship Showdown Submissions Winners.

Now, let’s see what’s going on this week:

Earlier today (Monday), distributions for the Q4 Buy Back Token began and we released the 2021 Buy Back Token schedule.

On Tuesday, the Narrative team will publish a lore post for all ship enthusiasts, focusing on the 2847 Tohil Regatta.

Then on Wednesday keep an eye out for Monthly Reports for both the PU & SQ42.

This Thursday, we’ll have information on the upcoming Imperator’s election. Keep in mind that there will be no ISC this week as the team continues their hiatus.

Finishing off the week on Friday, SCL goes in depth with the Narrative team in a pre-election roundtable on Twitch at 12pm Pacific / 7pm UTC. Also, you’ll also catch our weekly Roadmap update and Roundup, an update to the Subscriber Vault, and the weekly RSI Newsletter delivered to your inbox.

Until next time, I’ll see ya in the ‘verse!

PS: We’ve been seeing some speculation in the community about a virtual CitizenCon and we just want to give you a friendly reminder that we postponed the event back in May. It’s important to us to set appropriate expectations and make sure nobody wakes up expecting a gameplay demo or a full day of activities. We’re just as anxious to bring back the CitizenCon fun as you are, but we’re committed to waiting until it’s safe for everyone to do so in person. That said, we’ll still be celebrating Star Citizen’s birthday this year in our own way with a variety of different surprises and we can’t wait for you to check them out. Stay tuned for more information on that later this week.

Weekly Wisdom: Imperator Election Catchup

If you live under a rock, you may not have picked up on the current political happenings in the ‘verse. The Imperator election is right around the corner now, and we’ve been building up to it for months with features that gave you a chance to better know the final candidates and their stances on important issues. Rock dwellers, this week’s wisdom is for you!

The road so far has seen the top ten candidates get narrowed down to a final five, with whom individual interviews have been conducted. You can check them all out here:

Last week, our narrative team put out a lore post featuring the highly anticipated debate between the final five candidates on the hot topic of Synthworld. Check out the full debate here.

Get yourself caught up in preparation for our Imperator Election news on Thursday and SCL narrative roundtable on Friday!
