That doesn't mean that we should stop giving our feedback or critisism, on the contrary, but please keep it constructive. As the former US-president Teddy Roosevelt once said: “Complaining about a problem without posing a solution is called whining.”
So here is a short list of things everyone needs to do now:
- Don't focus on the things you don't like about the update.
Yeah no, I'm afraid the frustration and disappointment of some people runs too deep for that. I can only tell you the same thing I told Belial: some veteran players aren't just p1ssed by a single bad patch and some random fock-ups, this launch and this version has been a lot more than that.
For me it never really was about the 401 issue, or the -1 Credit issue, or stuff like that. Those are just bugs and issues that can be hotfixed, and only drag the game down for a couple of days. No, that's not it.
What got many people beyond their breaking point is the sudden realization that we were being lied to, feeding our false hopes for many months. According to your quote constructive criticism is still very welcome, and is being listened to by the devs... But the Steam patch has clearly proven that it's not the case. This is the problem.
Do you remember all the constructive suggestions around these forums, and all the discussions about issues that have been going on since as far as the start of OBT? Plenty of feedback - a great many of them constructive, and some of them very well thought out and feasible - has been given to these developers. If they only took half of that to the heart, this game would be currently wiping the floor with War Thunder instead of facing a slow and painful death. This is the problem.
Do you remember all the bullsh1t around here, where they said "yeah good idea, we consider it", and "many good things are in the pipe that we can't yet talk about", and the promises of issues being addressed by this very Steam patch, be it old bugs or blatantly obvious balance issues?
None of that happened, none of it was true! This is the problem.
I feel cheated, and I'm pretty sure I'm not alone with that. This isn't just another bad patch. This is a disaster, the factual destruction of everything we were led to believe in.
