MY friends havent quit as a result of the huge mess 2.0 is, but they sure reacted negatively to these changes and are definitely playing MUCH less than they used to. I FEEL it, and it dosent feel good, but Im not gonna quit playing
I believe you are missing the point here @Rumeht. If this patch wasnt such a jolt to the core gameplay experience, I would agree totally. We have to, as others have said before, ‘step back, relax, and reserve judgement’. These changes and NOT a positive thing, a player simply dosent have as much FUN as they used to pre 2.0.
The POINT to this ISNT that they should ‘reserve judgement’ though… its that they are reacting to a MAJOR overhaul of the way the game FEELS to them. Steam reviews, god… I read a bunch of them earlier and it only reinforces my feeling that I am NOT in the MINORITY here, and when people are ‘quitting’ the game, saying ‘its on them’ seems so wrong. In fact, I believe its a direct result of THIS patch!
I remember when changes occurred, and some I sure didnt like, but it didnt CHANGE the game. The game FELT the same. Legend was still legend, they just tweaked a few things and a was just adjusting to them accordingly, because I was willing to ‘put in the time’ as you stated. So when someone ISNT willing to put in the time with respect to such an overwhelmingly NEGATIVE change to the game, I think its disingenuous to say that its ‘their fault’ for not willing to… adjust. The game has gotten a HUGE change that makes it feel like a different game, and people are reacting to it. Fatshark are experiencing the repercussions of their actions (or LACK of with respect to beta feedback) right now, and I am SURE they are talking about it
I have a different reasons as to why I believe the game is less fun, but it seems, its less fun for a MAJORITY of players across the board. Some even quit playing all together. So saying its their fault, for not ‘putting in the time’ seems unfair, and totally unrealistic to me. I appreciate your input, and we all have an opintion, but Fatshark decided this was the direction to go, and people are reacting to it, simple as that
So to sum it all up. Yes, its the games fault - it simply dosent meet with the vast majority of consumers requirements anymore
