You MUST be kidding, trolling or you are simply completely ill-informed, Lamberyard == Cry Engine with support to Amazon Web Services out of the box and it’s free.
This was planned right from the start of Kickstarter and part of Crytek development roadmap on Cry Engine, along with PBT. No ‘scam’ or ‘feature creep’ here.
In last year they sold if I’m not counting wrong 8 concept ships and delivered more than 18 flyable ships (and 10 variants).
I’ll repeat myself here but, Lamberyard == Cry Engine with support to Amazon Web Services out of the box and it’s free. It’s actually a really smart move because now they do not need to pay Crytek royalties and they can use cheap Amazon Server farm power.
Modifying ToS to adapt to new realities is a normal thing. Apple, Unity, Crytek and others are all modifying their ToS yearly (if not even more periodically).
Only the ones who attacked them was not treated relly well, but even they got their refunds. All others are receiving their refunds as requested even if they Donated money, not bought a product…
So I don’t see your point, mainly because all you are mentioning is wrong or backed by wrong suppositions/data…
