I'm watching some stuff going on right now on the Steam Forum for the game. Some douche is dishing out his opinions on the game and devs, and the devs aren't exactly making me want to buy their game with their responses. One dev even flat out told a guy on another post to get a refund rather than address his concerns. Yeah, no, I'll keep my money thanks. Seen enough game developers, film makers, comic book writers etc disrespect their customers in the last couple of years, that I have zero tolerance for poor customer relations. Customers can be dickheads, but you shouldn't be one back to them while representing your company. I'm going to buy Phantom Doctrine instead. It also comes out today.


I refuse to buy a flight sim that I have no interest in playing, on the off chance that MAYBE someday they'll make the one I really want to play.

I'll purchase the early access/alpha, knowing the current game development status, and the fact that it may never reach the point of a proper release, just like all alphas, but yeah, I saw both topics and kind of agree with you - albeit the OPs of the aforementioned topics phrased them in a very aggressive way, the dev could have easily answered with technical arguments, and instead choose to ignore one poster, and then to not to answer any of the other poster concerns, and instead attacked him (the OP was a dickhead, but the dev is a dev, not a #%&*$# child...). In fact, the second topic (guy telling the devs how to dev their game, lol) had some interesting arguments and pointed at some real issues, but nothing that the devs should be ashamed (after all, is an alpha)...

I expect they get better in their dealings with the steam userbase, until now only people on their forums had the game, now it will be exposed to a much larger public, and they'll receive lots of complaints, even it being early access, as is tradition.

Hey guys. One of the Ground Branch developers here and I'd like to address your concerns.

Plain and simple, our guy didn't handle his first taste of Steam Discussions negativity very well. He handled it like a modder might and not as the face of a business. so I have given him an education in online business relations. smile

To be fair, the OP came out guns blazing with a tone I have encountered specifically myself before on another forum that turned out to be someone who just didn't like me or my career. He will pop up every now and again bagging on the project. So he came into it with one thing in mind... drop a grenade and see what happens. Fair enough, its the internet. However, those types of conversations are rabbit holes for us. The OP will continue to dig at anything no matter the response and the thread just goes round and round until its locked.

Long story short... Please don't judge the game or company off one or two purposely toxic threads on Steam Discussion boards. Take a minute and look around other places, listen to friends, read reviews or even see for yourself. The Steam refund policy is pretty good. Not for you at this time, no worries. We want everyone to feel good about their purchase.

I bought a 4 pack of this game a long time ago. It's only just now become "playable" as more than a tech demo. But its still got a long way to go. I hope the devs stick with it and that it does well but with how slow it is going there are going to be a lot of angry early access buyers.


And we as its creators don't feel ready to hear your annoyed jabber about it.

The original R6 series of games was my favourite game to play years ago... that, and 'Hidden & Dangerous'.
This however I will keep an eye on, but will only purchase if it's SP element is in the realm of the original game... I have been waiting years for that to happen.

Thanks for that John. I'm going to wait for now, but I'll consider getting it once the AI squadmates are in the game. And then, yeah, there's always the refund system if it just isn't for me.

I understand what you mean as a early backer, but now it´s in EA. All I can say is that one of the reasons to be on Steams EA is to speed up the game developement. Devs do this on there spare time and with no external income, thus EA should help them out in that aspect. That wont stop folks from expecting to much from a EA from the begining which in turn only ruins the whole concept of EA. Some EA games on Steam have been in EA for more then 3 years and are still at it, GB has just started yesterday, so I don´t see why some people are already jumping into conclusions so soon. With this I mean the "new" buyers of GB. Those who backed them up some time ago, have all the right to say it´s been slow going.

Let´s just hope that all of us who have been waiting for something like this to come along since R6 and GR can enjoy such gameplay in a not to long future.

Sounds good. Hopefully we can get it to a point that scratches that old school R6 ich for people. wink

We hope to be showing off some really early on the fly squad command work in the next few weeks. So keep an eye out for that.

I'm in Mauritius at the moment but as soon as I return will be all over the early access like a fat chick in a sweet shop.

Hopefully we can get some SimHQ tactical gameplay going down-range

A couple of Vets were streaming today and pretty much played Ground Branch as its meant to be played. We all know about the rough state of a lot of things in the game, but this shows what its like when played the right way with the right people. Thought I'd share.
