It's no spin, steam looks into every game that's put up on the list to sell... From what I see, this wasn't a greenlight project and it was just processed through normal steam measures. It was majorly valve's fault for not seeing that what was listed as game features presented were not even close to what the game currently had. I never said it was a wrong move, I never defended the company for making this huge mistake, so get off your soap box and come back down to unbiased land.
It seems abundantly clear, that you have no clue WTF happened here. Also it's quite clear you have no clue how Steam works at all. You try to push this onto Valve? Yeah, you're delusional.
I won't even bother explaining, because it's also very clear what your stance would be, even after that.
No word of them unbanning the thousands of accounts that got banned for mentioning the steam lies.
No word on giving refunds to those asking for it.
No word on actually fixing the game from the copy of War Inc it is.
No actual apology for the many lies
So, to sum it up... Just damage control for all the hits they are taking. You know its bad when Forbes runs the story. You know they had to do something and I'm actually shocked that this was the best they came up with.
nice letter -not needed, but hopefully will shut the trolls up. still love the game. fully support the game for what it is :
pure hardcore FPS -PVP!...for now.
Words are easy and going on past actions I certainly wouldn’t buy into this game or developer.

This was my first thought as I was reading the letter, every response I have read from Sergey has been poorly written, this letter does not convey the feeling that he wrote it at all, I imagine it was passed onto an unpaid intern to sort out.
He emphasised the point that the vocal members of the community where in the minority, if this truly was the case he would still have carried on ignoring them and just looked at the "700k" of players he has roaming about his 50-100 man servers.

All those players are trolls? The reviewers? The movie studio? Steam???
You can support what you want but please be aware that you may be supporting some shady people and damaging the games industry. If you want this kind of fps-pvp I would have thought your cash would be best spent of the DayZ standalone.
I smell a giant load of bullshit .
And for anyone to lazy to read it basically says, "Yap, we fucked up, do we care? Meh..we already made money..".
"Life is not judged by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away."
What Has Been Seen Cannot Be Unseen...
Quite frankly I have been wondering why they released in such an unfinished state as that none of what they were claiming was in the game? They were trying to say it was a beta, but that's what testing is for? Why release a product in beta as a finished product other than just a money grab and to hell with the buyers. I was thinking about getting the game, but not now. If they are not gonna put out a game in a finished state, then the game is not worth a second look.
People were all up in arms about ToR when it was put out and yet it could be played all the way thru with what they said was gonna be in it. A lot needed fixing because of bugs and such, but at least it was in the game.
so he went from insulting players... to calling people illiterate bozos to being totally and competely humble by them @_@ ... fk someone vote this guy in as a polititian FFFFFFFFFFFFK hes a shoe in to be come a mayor or something.
honestly they burnt alot of bridges with gaming communities by the less then steller way they are handling this game. expecting people to pay for it now who arent insane fanbois is just stupid. i honestly dont see how they can have thousands on their servers when the server is cropped at 40/50 people unless hes trying to say the account server has thousands O-o
wasnt aware there was even that many still playing it after all the crap that has been going on

He is counting their own dummy test accounts probably
I think email is less about genuinely apologizing and wanting to change, and more about trying to put a tourniquet around the severed arm that is just gushing refund money.
He is just hoping to get as many people as possible to "hang in" a little longer, until its to late to demand a refund.
Has anyone actually read what he is saying?
The game is great.
Most people love it.
Those with issues were definitely a minority.
The problems themselves were small.
So small we genuinely didn't think they mattered.
We aren't going to even mention the steam ban.
We also are saying nothing about the copyright suit from Paramount.
This is a "passive aggresive" response that, if you actually read it, spends more time going on about how great the game is and how minor the problems are. Also, other than community relations (for that read PR) there is not one piece of substance about sorting out the very real game killer issues in war z .
Lying is not a minor issue. The game release was a catalogue of deceit. This is a cheap and transparent attempt to wallpaper over that and in substance offers NOT ONE actual improvement outside his own PR.
Alert Damage Control - Alert Damage Control - Alert Damage Control
Hope he falls hard to the ground - His arrogance traded for backside kissing to turn the damage he has done.
To late...people have now seen the real man and face of this rippoff money grabbing sheep in wolf clothes.
Bye bye Sergej
It's too late for War Z to make any kind of comeback, it's finished. They might as well just stop putting anymore time into it.
There has been not even a handful of games that I can remember that received 100% of gamer's in agreement of how bad a game is whether it's the gameplay or whatever, this is one title to remember 2012 for.
Even games from the past like 'Star Wars Galaxies' had the majority of gamers giving negative feedback on it. Still there were some gamers defending it. I haven't seen one person yet to defend War Z especially on this site, now that's saying something.
