    This was completely unnecessary.  

    Susie and the "reviewer" didn't shit on anyone's opinion differing from theirs.  They only commented to trolls saying things like "paid review" etc.  They also defended themselves from those that saw a 5 min youtube video and had a PhD in MEA and decided that the review was invalid because of their pretentious views.  I'm guessing you were one of those people.  Why else would you post something so stupid.
    The reviewer very openly insinuated that everyone who was critical of ME:A was engaging in a witch hunt and harassing women involved in making the game.        

    No. She didn't do that.

    You would have to outright deny reality and go into "alternative fact" territory if you ignore that there was an orchestrated alt-right anti-MEA and anti-Bioware campaign surrounding the launch of the game.

    The game can indeed be criticized legitimately but that criticism was somewhat tainted by the actions of the lunatic fringe. There were even some reviewers that disliked and ridiculed the game who were nevertheless just as quick to ridicule the reasons being cited by many metabombers for their 0 scores. Just have a read through Jim Sterling's "Metabombed: Mass Effect Andromeda is 'Pure SJW Propaganda'" for an example of that. He also gave it a 5 out of 10.

    The fact is that, like it or not, there was so much wacko, extraneous bullshit mixed in with the legitimate criticism of MEA that any review written at that time pretty well needed to acknowledge the lunacy as part of the launch environment. And that's exactly what she did.

    "Everyone who was critical" is just your spin on it.

  • Should there be NO trading at all in MMOs?

    Frankly I could care less. The whole economic aspect of MMOs is something I see as a necessary distraction from the core game that I only participate in to gear up, not for its own sake. I'd just as soon get what I need and sell what I don't through NPCs. 

    I find it funny that some immediately equate it with positive social interactions when there are so many other positive social things you can do in MMOs that don't involve trading that are, IMO, much more central to the core game play.

    You want to be nice to someone in a game? Give them some of your time. It's much more valuable than trinkets.

    The video looks like a feminist garbage enforcing ugly women as leaders. Ok, I will let the girls to play this game.
    You know they say that sometimes people who are paranoid do have enemies. Sometimes however, they are just plain paranoid.

    So... were they removed from the referral program or not? It's not a tough question.

    Furthermore,

    Intrepid Studios was absolutely honest and transparent with Kickstarter in regards to our rewards. As stated from KS they allow one time financial rewards.

     Appearently there was miscommunication about what our referral reward system does. It is a one time reward in the form of reward points for purchases. All Kickstarter funds are quarantined for development costs only. The rewards points that could be redeemed for cash rewards are not allowed for redemption until our launch, which will then use non kickstarter funds to fulfill these redemptions. 

    The issue for me is that PCGamer never reached out to me for clarifications of these things or even to get my response on their reporting. In addition to the misreporting. 

    Either way,

    This topic is now closed for me. I hope my transparency will shed light on this for you guys on mmorpg.com
