No Man's Sky Subreddit Shuts Down

MikehaMikeha Member EpicPosts: 8,893

Edit: It seems the subreddit has opened up again with a message by one of the modsSporkicide,  You can read the message that he is written by clicking here.

In a surprising turn of events it seems as if the moderators at the No Mans sky subreddit had apparently had enough and decided to shut it down, to the disdain of some 150,000 subscribers.  The said announcement was posted by moderator “rOugew0lf”:

“So I purged the subreddit. It’s become a hate filled wastehole of no actual discussion. It’s not what we intended it to be and I don’t like providing a platform for hate. I’m sorry to everyone who used the subreddit as intended but you are now in the majority. I’m sure you can find a different place to discuss this game. It’s not hard.”

“This was my decision and mine alone. The other moderators tried to sway my opinion but cynicism got the best of me as usual.”

There were a number of disgruntled players, who regularly used the subreddit as a way of voicing their displeasure about the game, and it seems that the moderator finally had enough as he decided to pull the plug on the popular subreddit.

    Yeah I think people are over trolling this.

    Can't say I blame him, really, it must be depressing having to moderate a subreddit that's become a rolling hate fest.

    Perhaps one of the haters should start up a new subreddit specifically for NMS abuse ? :D

    Yep.  Trolling can feed into the herd mentality.  Once the herd gets going, it's hard to stop.  I don't blame them.  

    Concentrate on enjoying yourself, and not on why I shouldn't enjoy myself.

    Is that so...? "Hate", you say. I think someone is trying to play victim here. Since the launch (and the consequent shitshow) I went there several times to check infos and links... Never saw hating mass posts or flaming trolls as everyone is suggesting.

    People were interested in finding links and sharing information. Such things would be downvoted to oblivion.

    For me it seems it's easy to sush everything blaming the invisible and mysterious trolls that are everywhere and nowhere... That's a bit weird when you say it out loud... must be because it is bullshit.

    Because, weirdly enough, it is rumored that Sean will appear soon in a show about gaming of one of his old friends to talk about what happened. 

    This is too much coincidental. And I don't believe in coincidences.

    The schmuck closed it down to get rid of all the "negativity". You know, like false advertisement investigations, Sean being a schmuck snakeoil artist, those things. A moderator moderates. A  fanboi trying to cover Hello Games collective asses burns the evidence.

    I'm glad their being investigated. Honestly it objectively DOES look like false advertising the way the game maker kept skirting telling the people what they were actually getting when they bought the game.  He had to make a blanket statement days before launch saying "if you want a multiplayer game don't look here" still not even fully owning up to the fact that the game has 0 multiplayer in it.

    They were shady, we all know it.

    You make it sound like their vagueness wasn't meant to be misleading on purpose.

    If multiplayer wasn't meant to be in then why did the game package originally list it as feature and they had to cover that point with a sticker?

    Reading the subreddit now, apparently they admit that they deleted comments from the "reopening" thread which in addition to name calling were "vague complaints". Terrible.

    And what is the point of having a game forum when everyone just complain about said game in it?

    Just complaining about a game over and over does not really help anyone. Saying why you quit in a post is fine and talking how to improve the game is good but just whine and whine is hardly fun to moderate, and it doesn't help if you do it for free.

    Did Sean ever issue a blanket statement to the effect of "if you want a multiplayer game don't look here"? Was it broadly public? Could someone link to it? 

    All I remember were the interviews, in which he did state that you would be able to meet up with your friends in game, however unlikely.

    Yeah from that article:


    No Man's Sky / 8 Aug 2016

    No Man's Sky 'Is Not a Multiplayer Game,' Hello Games Founder Says

    The chance of two players meeting 'is pretty much zero.'

    By Jonathon Dornbush There are plenty of things No Man's Sky will be for those who pick it up upon release, according to Hello Games founder Sean Murray, but one thing it will not be is a multiplayer game.

    Murray sought to clarify expectations for No Man's Sky ahead of its launch on PlayStation 4 tomorrow, August 9, in North America, and on PC on August 12, explaining in a series of tweets that players shouldn't go into the experience anticipating a multiplayer-focused game.

    "To be super clear — No Man's Sky is not a multiplayer game. Please don't go in looking for that experience," Murray wrote in the first of a series of tweets.




    He does NOT say it does not have multiplayer, he says it's 'so large you probably won't ever meet anyone'.  HUGE difference as what he says infers there is mutliplayer but the game is so big you'll never see anyone.

    Glad i refunded this mess.

    No offense, but Sean was definitely skating a thin line in multiple interviews with his previous answers up until just before release. He would say things to people, even on morning shows, to the effect that it was indeed a multiplayer game. He would then try to distract people from that idea by saying the universe is so big that you will never meet anyone. All said in done, it was false advertising with a patch statement just before release that anyone could of missed out on. However, if you think the rating NMS currently has on Steam is complete bullshit ( 33% positive reviews out of 70k+ and 13% positive reviews of the last 5800 reviews made ) than that's like me saying LoL isn't a popular game. It's really kind of hard to say his marketing tactics were anything but unethical and borderline false.

    Hype features - Check
    Limit actual game play videos - Check
    Disappear after launch - Check
    Less than 1% of players still playing after one month (on steam) - Check
    Delete subreddit of accusations - Check
    Get investigated for false marketing - Check

    Seems Legit.

    Not off to a good start. Any student that has taken a class in information theory should know the difference. 

    Murray begins heading in the right direction in the article but then did a 180 with this gem: 



    Grade A bs, the day before launch. 

    What Sean *should* have said, in my humble opinion, is "You will never see another player in this game; you will only see features that other players have named".

    That would have been honest. 

    Still waiting on a link to a broad, unequivocal statement, where Sean cleared up his prior misleading remarks, previous to launch.
