I'd also like to go on record as saying that in my edited post I did not call anyone any names or insult anyone whatsoever, and no offence to the editor concerned (Avinimus?) but I feel what I wrote was fair comment, Chief?
I can understand Furbs quote and my (joking) agreement with it being removed, but I'm not sure what was 'wrong' other than that? Is it OK in order to avoid the 'personal' thing if I refer to a certain party as 'a certain party' in future? I'd just like some clarification please if that's ok.
I said a certain party had displayed 'audacity' with a recent post, because IMHO, they had. The British idiom 'Brass neck' meaning 'stunning cheek' in reference to a certain party was also fair comment IMHO, and not an insult but a statement of fact. Falstaffs pocket book translation is bang on the money, and echoes my sentiments entirely. Not to mention the fact that people were continually led to believe pre release that certain features were in development for CoD, which now appears not to be the case. Now they have to pay for a new release in order to get these features mooted for CoD in a merged install, whether they care about the Battle for Moscow, or not. Otherwise, 'tough luck'. Nice.We are trying to pull off a very difficult balancing act with developing a new game and supporting an old one at the same time. Pretty much no one does that.
You've got to be frikkin kidding me, man. Supporting an old one
? For that read 'supporting a half baked catastrophe', which I would contend is in fact an obligation and moral duty to paying customers. Yes, I understand and always have done that they intend
to continue patching CoD (and rightly so)....but no longer believe or take a single word a certain party says seriously now.....and they have only themselves to blame for that. We all know Aesops fable about the boy who cried wolf. People have been more than patient
, and their ire is perfectly understandable.
Serious PR blunder by a certain party. The thing that got peoples backs up is the implication that we should somehow be eternally grateful for them fixing a product which by a certain parties own admission was 'half finished
' on release, and 9 months later is not a great deal better. A certain party perhaps should have took a bit more care on how they worded their response, which in my opinion was insulting to paying customers intelligence, and frankly risible. Again, I think this is fair comment.
Right, whinge over.
I'm not 'raging' btw......more in the 'acceptance' stage now lol. Not the end of the world, but very disappointing all the same.
Truth be told, and with all that said.....I will most likely buy the next release.
Yes, I am also an idiot, and an absolute MUG......did I mention that? What can you do.
Peace and goodwill to all.
