anon474 Posted March 20 Share Posted March 20 Don't get discouraged by hate comments if you see them devs, a lot of people have this idea that if they're passionate about something that leaving super negative hypercritical comments on social media will "make the dev do the right thing" but often the criticism is unjustified or stupid, and the comment isn't like "I think it would be better this way" it's more like "devs are money hungry predators and vultures eating our wallets" and super personal, vitriolic, designed to insult people personally as much as possible. I saw one guy on steam go off and write a mega critical review saying the game is dead because they ruined one of the mercs' look and they didn't even ruin the look they just changed it (I think it was steroid or something), it was some random merc he was attached to and basically said "oh because this merc is poorly designed the game is over and finished" basically writing the entire game off right off the bat, which is really bad for developers to listen to because they might get discouraged by somebody freaking out over a very small change which is not even negative, and think "whats the point to even trying" if this is the kind of audience and reception they're going to get, who freak out over 1 merc's slight redesign and ignore all other work or changes done at the heart of the title. As a likely future customer and a fan of the series, I would just like to say that we are not all like this, and at least I am very supportive of your efforts, and don't believe in attacking dev teams over mild BS (or at all, as long as the dev team wants to make a good game which i think is a lot of teams, maybe most teams in the games industry). 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
