GameSpy: Shocking Interview With The War Z Developer

RazeeksterRazeekster GlobMember Posts: 2,553 Uncommon
So I read this interview and was just completely taken aback and shocked at how arrogant Sergey Titov was in the interview. I was thinking about giving this game a chance for a while but now I am so waiting for the DayZ standalone game. He was just so rude and uncaring towards the playerbase in the interview. I really couldn't believe my eyes the whole time I was reading it. Anyways, here's the link to the interview: http://uk.pc.gamespy.com/pc/the-war-z/1226980p1.html

    I know right?! I don't think I've ever seen a developer talk in such a rude way. It blew my mind because I just didn't understand why he would further want to make it so players hated him even more after the whole Steam thing. I mean you'd think he'd be sucking up big time to his playerbase not acting like a pompous [explicit].

    LOL. Holy hell, how is this company in business.

    "We also want to extend our apologies to all players who misread infromation about game features."

    I lol'd so hard when he pushed the fault onto the playerbase instead of them breaking every promise. The fact he said he doesn't feel like apologizing made me lol some more, this is hilarious.

    I just noticed he didn't even spell chek information.

    And the funny part is he has basically said that the players "misread information" several times now! He's having another interview later with PCgamer so I'll be interested to see if he humbles up at all or he continues to act like an ass.

    Don't see Gamespy getting another interview with that company any time soon.  LOL

    Fear not fanbois, we are not trolls, let's take off your tin foil hat and learn what VAPORWARE is:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vaporware

    "Vaporware is a term used to describe a software or hardware product that is announced by a developer well in advance of release, but which then fails to emerge after having well exceeded the period of development time that was initially claimed or would normally be expected for the development cycle of a similar product."

    Yeah, if it hadn't been over IM there would have for sure been someone there telling him to shut up because he was making such a fool out of himself.

    Ye I read it yesterday, will never buy from them. I was quite pissed off at his remarks on "up to 100 players, but we limit it to 50 but doesnt mean we can't support it" imagine every company started saying shit like that.

    I know! I was really happy with whoever was interviewing him because the person was not afraid to continue pursuing questions that actually mattered to the players.

    I was  waiting to see how all this stuff shook out, and if the game got any better considering it still in beta.  Now after I read all that, wel lthere is no way in the world I would give them any money.

    Yeah, this interview was basically my deciding factor. Waiting for DayZ.

    Super toxic product right here. I've read more than enough to know not to touch the War Z. The game itself seems to be sorely underdeveloped. While only being a moderation of an already existing game. The developer Sergy or whatever..

    Wow this guy is out there, the only thing I can respect is the crass-corporate tone he maintains throughout the interview. Show's me he's a true dirtbag, but at least doesn't try very hard at hiding it.

    If only more of the cheat-skate development companies would be as raw and uncarring when trying to defend the blantant misinformation they try to feed us consumers..

    These folks are getting more and more bold with the vaporware trash they send out, soon they'll come right to our houses and doors to remove the $20 bucks from our pockets..

    WTF, stay away from this game.. and this company.. Hammerpoint Interactive..

     

    PM before you report at least or you could just block.

    Just found this bit of tidbit of information: The  EULA was copy/pasted from League of Legends and tweaked, states that under no circumstances will any sort of refund be forthcoming. Which is completely illegal.

    Thats pathetic... But typical of some Dev's I've run across over the last year or two.  Whats even worse is that Steam has been fairly good about dealing with these types of antics, in the past.  Lets see if they get it in gear and deal with it now.

    More proof that the developers of WarZ really don't give a crap about their players...

    Kudos for Gamespy. You don't see companies getting asked the hard questions very often. You usually get bum kissing softball questions asked.

    The devs from SWTOR were just as arrogant and annoying as those from Warz too, btw.

    Is the reason hes not issuing an apology because he would then be fair game to sue? (admission of fault?)

    He won't admit to being in the wrong while he's making money from this. The whole thing is a total scam to the point that they've now patched the game making you sign a TOS that means you can't get a refund.

    The WarZ staff have been banning people on the Steam forum section for the game that says anything negative, ask for refunds etc. Valve are now investigating that too so they'll probably be kicked off there just shortly lol.

    Wow, I hope these guys get sued for false advertising. This "PR Rep" should go back to college and look at a different career path.

    yea they really should keep this guy away from interviews because he is not helping the situation.

    However one night when I was playing warz, he joined the server and was having a random candid conversation with the people playing on how to improve the game. I thought that was cool that he was doing that.

    Nah, I saw a lot of mixed stuff going on. A lof people are mixed on the forums over there. I was reading it and a lot of people are giving him flack for the "misreading" thing.

    His other game, the lowest rated game on Metacritic, has four times the user rating as War Z.

    That's really sad considering how bad that game is... The youtube videos that make fun of it are hilarious to watch though.
