In pains me when I think of all the money and energy that's gone into the proproganda that was required to program you to believe that.Shadanwolf said:The less government intrusion in anything...the better. That includes the internet.
No, he's right it's childishness, and to the extreme degree. It's not too different than picking on the smaller kids in your neighborhood just because you know you can do it with impunity.OK Ordanska.. you can suggest childishness. I suggest it's realism.JustDrake said:I would suggest childishness of behalf of those that don' allow constructive criticism of their comments.StaalBurgher said:I think we can agree they probably wouldn't get far with a traditional publisher because there is no proven market for their chosen mechanics.MadFrenchie said:And there are very valid reasons those publishers don't want to fund these endeavors. None of that qualifies a cautious wait and see attitude about these developers' ability to deliver, quite the contrary. And it certainly doesn't mean we should give them carte blanche regarding monetization and marketing tactics.
Had the CoE team approached a traditional, reputable publisher and pitched this idea and timeline, how do you honestly think that would've went down?
I am not suggesting carte blanche. I just don't like what I see as a vendetta from some posters. Their monetisation is far better than loot boxes or what have you in some very successful games.
Most of the criticism of the sale of titles etc is speculation as to its long term effects. It might turn out bad but it is not a given. That is what annoys me the most, the extreme reactions. Everything is a total disaster, complete failure or idiocy. And no explanation is every allowed to mitigate the negative in any way.
Seems very much "my way is right and you are wrong".
At the moment the devs have made mistakes, yes but other studios do too, the only difference is they don' admit them or hide them with their lack of transparency.
With Coe only time will tell and I think it's time people laid off the insults and waited to see what happens
Okay, talk about pot meet kettle .... lol.Dakeru said:Didn't you just complain about the forum being toxic?SedrynTyros said:Me either given how much time you devote to slagging this project. It's hard to be believe any of the potential dirt for the smear campaign would fly under your radar.Was that on the public forums or the super secret high money backer ones? I'll have to check my sources... can't believe I missed that one."He's the one that admitted the "investors" he mentioned on their KS page was in fact a family member. One family member."This is like those open and shut cases Dave Chapelle talks about during his comedy routines.Something like that is all you need to prove something is fishy.
At least Slap said he missed a fact he would have used to back up his opinion.
That's still on topic.
All you do is personally attack him without contributing anything.
You definitely should. Trolling is much more fun when you have like-minded companions. The only thing better than investing personal time into destroying the work of others is having company when you do it.Is your account still active on the CoE forums? If so I shall keep an eye out for your posts.I read many of your posts on their forums. I wondered where you had gone to. Stick around, I have a feeling the fun is just getting started!Oh, and where are my manners
Nice to meet you all =]
I have to say, it is quite the honor to meet you. And you're right, the fun has only just commenced.
