Roberts Wars: Star Citizen's New Damage Model

Like a robot butterfly losing its wings to a robot jackass child

Crowdfunding’s fattest offspring, Star Citizen [official site], has a new damage model as showcased by a video of spaceships being lasered, blasted and generally having bits knocked off them.

Chris Roberts’ first person space MMO combat and trading sim thing has generally sounded to me like Eve meets Elite: Dangerous meets childhood Star Wars daydreaming. This video, however, made me think of Robot Wars when one robot has been incapacitated and is being ripped to shreds by another robot. Or perhaps it’s closer to if house robot, Matilda, had a career as a robot mortician and was trying to bash her way to finding a cause of death by decimating the metal corpse in front of her.

Well, the first bit did. The second ship destruction was like watching that weird kid at school rip the wings off a butterfly.
