This Week in Star Citizen 33/2022

Happy Monday, everyone!

The time has finally come… Ship Showdown returns, and it’s up to all of you to choose this year’s champion!

Phase 1, which will last until August 29, challenges you to make as much noise as possible for your favorite flyable ship or driveable vehicle.

How, exactly, do you ask? Flood the Community Hub or Twitter using #SCShipShowdown with original creative submissions for your favorite. And don’t forget to upvote and like your favorites to help amplify their chances of making it into the Finals.

And by original creative submissions, we really mean anything that clearly shows your love for your chosen vehicle. You can paint, dance, sing, or submit videos, screenshots, photos of self-made models, LEGO miniatures – there’s no limit!

In Phase 2, the top 16 ships will go head-to-head daily to narrow down the list to the ultimate aerospace champion. Remember, the top 8 ships will be available in an upcoming Free Fly, and the final 4 will unlocked a myriad of epic prizes.

And that’s not the only way to win prizes! We’ve also launched a second contest on our dedicated Star Citizen TikTok channel that you won’t want to miss!

Last week, Dynamic Events Jumptown 2.0 and Siege of Orison came to an end, and we hope you’ve enjoyed the return of the first and the initial iteration of the latter. We certainly enjoyed the action you brought to both. We’ve received a tremendous amount of feedback about Siege of Orison in particular and the team is deep diving all of it with great care, with plans to further improve the event in the months to come. 

We also wanted to say thank you to everyone who attended the Bar Citizen event in Tacoma, Washington. Our team members that were able to make it out have been raving about how great of a time it was to visit!

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

This Tuesday, the Narrative team brings us a Plain Truth article claiming Hurston Dynamics intentionally manipulated the United Workers of Hurston into the violent group it’s known as today.

Then, on Wednesday, you can look forward to an update to the Roadmap, alongside a Roadmap Roundup!

Thursday, we’re back with another episode of Inside Star Citizen. This week, we take a look at Kareah and Klescher, two classic locations of the Stanton System, and see what’s new from the Mission Feature team in this quarter’s patch.

On Friday, you’ll receive an update to the Subscriber Vault and the weekly RSI Newsletter delivered straight to your inbox. Star Citizen Live will be back on our Star Citizen Twitch channel at 8am PST/3pm UTC. This week, we’ll celebrate Ship Showdown with an All-Vehicles Q&A to answer questions about the development status of your favorite ships.

Have a stellar week both in and out of the ‘verse!
