Track record? What does what was done with the game before this have to do with anything I stated in my post? They posted planes, people pre ordered them and got the plane they pre ordered, pretty plain and simple. However upon the announcement of the channel map and three new planes it changed. They have stated that if they do not get the funds to continue to develop the game then its over, period. What I said was not a prediction, it is a fact.
It has always been the case that if the money wasn't sufficient to continue development, then "it's over." Jason has been consistent on this point and it's been the case long before the announcement of the new map. The statements you refer to are just another iteration of him being explicit and honest about that. So nothing has changed.
Therefore, Redcoat is correct to cite their track record as solid evidence that they deliver what they promise (which, btw, includes more than just planes: e.g. new campaign, mods, beta Career). You may not have predicted anything, but your assessment that it is better to save your money than "risk" it by pre-ordering the channel map is not supported by their track record, which was his point.
