Does this even get to anyone that matters? Do you even listen to what your customers are suggesting? This is such a far cry from Vermintide in quality and content I’m unable to even fathom how FS can be proud of this product in it’s current state. And in the latest content drop, you praise yourself for getting this point as if it’s some sort of accomplishment. Imagine crapping the bed and then prasing yourself for cleaning it up.
You want to save face with your dedicated fanbase of 10 years? Forget your vision and give us content we actually want. Because FS’s vision for this game is a total failure. Forget releasing more useless cash-grabbing cosmetics and have some respect for yourself and your customers by releasing content that actually makes the game better.
At this point, Darktide is an absolute embarrassment. FatShark is not what they used to be.
When Darktide was released 6 months ago I expected a minimum of everything that Vermintide had. Weaves, chaos wastes, a full fledged campaign. The minimum was a clone of the best parts of Vermintide and content.
I don’t think they’re listening bro.
Lets just leave aside all the spicy criticism they rightly deserve for a second. They have made real improvements to the game over the last six months (sure much of it was just releasing what they promised on launch, but it IS an objective improvement). Delivering more content and more stability and performance. The game is, over all, in a pretty good state as a game. But the subsystems are where all the players are chafing right now and they aren’t doing anything (so far) to resolve those.
They’re so close to greatness. They just need to get out of their own way. I can live with the slow pace of content, and I don’t care about muh cosmetics. They just need to let their game be as fun as it can be.
I do use the scoreboard mod, that being said: The past 6 months and most discussions why the Scoreboard should be native in the game have firmly convinced me that there should not be a native scoreboard in this game.
We have a mod for the scoreboard, that covers all the “positive” needs of checking your own progress, while at the same time keeping the “negative” side of Epeen comparison largely contained to various social media forums, as people can’t guarantee their teammates have access to the scoreboard.
The scoreboard mod causes some toxicity already when a mission goes sideways because of RNG and someone gets blamed for no reason.
In VT2, it also promoted bad gameplay where you just run off and try to solo everything to rack up those green circles. (Look at you, those elf mains).
Personally, I’m not bothered by the lack of scoreboard based on my experiences in Overwatch, and unless it’s a truly casual game where losing or winning has no effect on your next game, quantifying with stats how well someone is doing creates unneeded toxicity. TF2 had a scoreboard with aggregated stats, but it’s incredibly casual where it didn’t matter.
So yeah, I agree. Based on this forum itself and how hostile people are to each other, a scoreboard in the game seems like a bad idea especially since progression via materials are tied to winning and losing.
Dude half that what I proposed are variables on sql spreadsheets
This enterprise project still has completely wrong tool tips 6 months after release. So, don’t white knight saying I have no concept of how complex my asks are. There is low hanging fruit yet to be picked, and a handful of modders in their spare time could have done much of that months ago.
See mods such as, creature spawner, scoreboard, Buffs being visible, Tool tip fixes. Random individuals have done work an entire studio wouldn’t make time for.
