  • Game Companies Need To Stop Blaming The Consumer For Their Own Failings.

    I'll try to keep this short and to the point.

    This past week Bill Murphy penned a five point list on what gamers need to stop complaining about. I'm ashamed to say many of us reacted to that list with quite a lot of hostility. However I feel the outrage if not justified is at least understandable. For some reason it seems both the company and popular dialogue these days is that a game company going broke is somehow all the consumers fault. That's not how things work. Many times when people complain about a games monetization strategy there's always someone who chimes in with the non sequitur "Well of course they are trying to make money, they're a business." To which I have to say, well no shit Sherlock, because these people seem to badly miss the point. Game companies are a business and one of the responsibilities of running a business is proffering a good or service of a quality that consumers desire. If you as a business can't provide a product of a quality to be profitable with an overhead that doesn't negate said profits, that is not the fault of the consumer, but your own bad business strategy.

    And that's the reason we are seeing so much complaining over the quality and monetization of games these days, MMOs in particular. It seems companies keep asking gamers to pay more and more yet provide less and less. And then to add insult to injury, have the unmitigated arrogance to blame the consumer when their product fails. If you as a company lack the drive or ability to create a product of quality and desirability that stands out from the competition, in what is an already badly overburdened market, that is completely and utterly your own fault.

  • Developer has no objection to allowing high donating players have GM accounts. Not P2W... LOL

    40k is a lot of money . People expect something in return.

    Let us know when you put down 40k and expect, to be just another player..
    And that's fine, but I hope this minority enjoys sitting around playing with themselves as I personally have zero interest in supporting such a game and I imagine I'm not alone in feeling this way.
  • Why I no longer frequent mmorpg.com

    No the real reason you no longer frequent MMORPG.com, Kopogero, is because they keep banning your ass.
  • One man and his twisted mind. The face of the community? From the mind of Ben Lesnick.

    Oh look, more grasping at straws from the people who can't find any actual factual evidence of wrongdoing or looming disaster by CIG and Chris Roberts. You're starting to look truly desperate guys.

    I have to say though that this attempt at character assassination by your camp is wonderfully ironic seeing as the main reason you anti-fans claim no one will step forward and directly call out Chris Roberts for being a lying toolbag is the dread of personal attacks exactly such as this. Congratulations on becoming the exact kind of people you claim to hate.

    So do you think a main figurehead of a community should have something like this in his background?
    Oh indeed its probably not going to be good for him, welcome to the reality of saying stupid shit on the internet. Kids? Don't try this at home. However for all I care in his personal life the lad could gad about in leather lingerie and diddle his Hitler Real Doll, as long as he doesn't bring that shit to work with him I fail to see how its any of my business.

    And let's be honest here, if the guy wasn't connected to SC and bringing this shit up didn't further your anti-SC agenda, you wouldn't give a shit what he said in the past either. Its just like some of the hoary old crap Derek Smart said years ago some of the super-fans like to dredge up as god given proof that some silly old troll posts totally define the man's character and personality.

    Anyway once again good work on turning your hate for a game into personal attacks against individuals for your own personal gain. And thanks as it really paints a picture of what kind of people are behind this so called "for the public good" smear campaign.

    "Mark the Death of Season Passes"



    More like EA marketing trying to generate some good will with customers after messes like Battlefront season pass with players hardly ever able to play that content and make some good headliners. "We've been selling you seasons passes for years... now we'll market NO season pass as a feature to sell our games on!".



    Meanwhile you have Ubisoft moving onto "Year TWO!" season passes for their titles.... "Mark the Death of Season Passes", good one :).



    Considering this is EA they've likely dropped the season pass because they've come up with something worse.
  • Why are none of you talking about Star Marine?

    First rule of Star Marine is you don't talk about Star Marine.

    Lol complete account closure if you post a rogue 1 spoiler. Yeah CIG aren't abusing that TOS, not at all.
    Sounds like the idiot got what he deserved after being warned.
    He got what he deserved? He asked for a refund and got it? Yeah they sure showed him! Lol
    Yep he got his money back, they got rid of yet another toxic asshole. Everyone won this one.

    You think this guy was a toxic asshole? Damn you must live a sheltered life
    The only thing more moronic than banning someone from a game, not just the forums but a game for something this childish, is being moronic enough to get yourself banned from a game for such childish behavior.
