I'm going to start by saying I love this game. My posts here and elsewhere have been far from negative. Sure I have my occassional complaints, but who doesn't. I enjoy the game despite the problems I have with it.
Now, saying that, my biggest complaint right now is the overreacting community. Not here, as the people on MMORPG tend to be pretty reasonable with reasonable posts. But seriously, I can't say A WORD in game about the current problems it faces.
For example, today I was wandering around in the Norn starting area because I thought it would be fun to have another character. In the map chat, I see someone being viciously assaulted because he said, and I quote, "It sucks that the trading post is still down..." This sounds like a perfectly reasonable complaint considering we are three weeks into the game and a major feature is still not working properly. Then, when I tried to defend what he was saying, I became the target, and people went as far as insulting my intelligence for defending this poor other guy.
Then, he brought up the complaint of a lack of official communication. The fact that we have to have a twitter account (which many don't have) in order to keep updated seems unprofessional. But, of course, if I don't have a twitter than I'm just ignorant (yes, this is what someone told me). God forbid anyone request that the client give us the news updates we want, or at least the game's own official forums.
I'm not sure why exactly, but this game's community in game has become way too defensive over the pettiest things. It's either because they've grown accustom to backlashing at haters, and so at any sense of negativity they try to nip it in the bud. Or maybe it's because people were so convinced this game would be perfect that they had to create a false sense of reality of that perfection, and any seeping thought of negativity would break that reality and leave their brains useless.
I'm curious to hear what you guys think and what you're experiences are. I've found my experiences here are much nicer than in game when talking to other people. Right now I feel like the community feels extremely immature when regarding the games technical faults, like the lack of communication and the downed trading post.
