Like the title says.
Or to clarify, it’s not that I don’t believe fatshark doesn’t listen to the community’s feedback but rather, it seems like they honestly don’t give a second glance at anything unless the entire community is in such an uproar they have to go on red alert about it. e.g. the Executioner Sword previously sharing same code as the Glaive when it got nerfed.
There have been so, so many issues of assumedly relatively easy quality of life fixes that have yet to be implemented. Hell, most of them not even publicly recognized as actual problems that I’m sure the majority, if not all of the community already recognize or agree with. For example:
Weapon switching is not always accurate. Inputs are either delayed or eaten, especially when done swiftly. Which is extremely important for this kind of game. I’ve met players who’ve had to make specific mouse or keyboard macros to get this to not be a problem, which not every person is privy or able to.
Chaos Warrior hurtboxes, more specifically their overhead strike. Multiple times have I been on the flank of them as they go to attack another and end up taking a hit intended for another when my character seemed to be reasonably out of range. There are a million and one .webms of this happening.
The absolutely insane charge/lunging range attacks certain enemies get, them being both extremely fast and unpredictable while also homing onto their target. Even in the midst of hordes where you literally cannot even see them. Not sure if this is intended, but regardless I think most agree that it’s a bit ridiculous at times.
Huntsman’s ultimate leaving the screen in the darkened ult state even after he’s finished. Which I know has been said that it’s been dealt with… months ago. Why is it still not implemented?
And those are just a few of the tippy top of the iceberg when it comes to the massive floating frozen debris the S.S. Sigmar is slowly sailing toward. Don’t even get me started on class and weapon balance.
But listen, I get that there are more important things to focus on, I do. Especially with the reveal of Vermintide II being ported to consoles and the giant time and effort sink that must be. But honestly, in my opinion, it feels like the devs aren’t communicating at all and leaving everyone in the dark about too many things. I can forgive and hold out regarding the myriad of issues plaguing this game that I love if I actually knew they were going to be fixed. That things were going to change.
At the moment the game just feels stagnated in mediocrity when I know it can be something better and it’s upsetting that there are currently zero or very few signs of that happening.
