I’ve been playing this game since phase II of the beta and have enjoyed playing it with friends. No matter what happened from phase II to present day, my friends and I would log in and enjoy the game while finding new ways to die.
Until recently, I’ve noticed a lot of the feedback that people are giving about how they want the game to be instead of how it should be.
My friends and I are casual players but also like to one day move up to the Legendary difficulty. We can clear Champion but at this point in time with the increased special disablers, it has been fairly challenging. Currently, we have an 80% success rate. Not too shabby. The game isn’t about winning or loot, it’s about having fun with friends.
Unfortunately, a few select people are ruining the game for everyone else. I’ve seen this exact same scenario before with Black Power Games. Another Indie gaming developer who listened to their community but listened so much that it ran their company into the ground. Now I will never know what happened to my character in Betrayer as there will never be a sequel.
FatShark, I am begging you, please do not continually change the game because a few people who have no lives, jobs, or significant others claim the game is too easy and needs to be made harder.
I’m all for balance changes to be able to play the game as intended but you’re getting the feedback from the wrong type of people.
I played Skyrim for a long time. Started out playing on Novice (easy) to get the feel of the game. Then worked my way to Legendary (survival) difficulty. When I play Skyrim now, I always play on the hardest difficulty. Learning game mechanics and being able to gradually move up in difficulty is a very satisfying experience. It should be natural and the jump between difficulties should be evenly spread out.
The difficulty gap between Champion and Legendary is too great. It’s not only harder but the spawn rate of specials, elites, patrols, and other types of enemies are 4x greater even after the last patch.
I absolutely love this game and already got my money’s worth but I would like to continually play this game for a long time.
Making the Legendary difficulty for a handful of people is not fair to the other 97% of players that bought your game. Casual players are your money makers. The no-lifers will eventually move on after boredom.
Please remove Feedback thread to prevent a select number of people from running your amazing game and company into the ground. I would like to see you continually thrive in the business to create and develop new games.
TL;DR Less than 3% of the community are calling for hero nerfs and enemy buffs because they have no life and want the game to be incredibly hard and ruining the experience for the casual players. The game should be fun while challenging but not so hard that it’s incredibly impossible to play and enjoy. They are going to ruin FatShark and cause them to go out of business.
+1 if you want FatShark to thrive and not let these people ruin our game!
