Real Talk, Fatshark: You need to hire competent programmers immediately

You broke your game again with this Backend Error 1110 stuff. It is really hard to come up with a list of things in this game that WERE NOT bugged or broken in some way.

You art people and design people are great, but the programmers you have implementing this stuff in the engine are terrible, there’s just no other way to put it at all. I don’t know if they’re distracted at work chatting on social media or no one goes to meetings or they just don’t know what they are doing, but this is unacceptable now and you’re brand is trashed.

I like to think I have a lot of patience but honestly even I’m running out of apologetic behaviour at this rate, first general backend errors, then 1342 along with backend errors now everyone I know is getting 1110 and I’m rapidly getting tired from all the repeated bugs cropping up everywhere.

I really want to endorse your product, believe me, but please give me more reason to. Ever since launch I’ve wanted to recommend this game but felt like I’d feel ashamed if people had to deal with all the stuff that just KEEPS COMING UP ><… on top of the fact simpler issues remain where some weapons hits dont even register in a ‘‘melee game’’…

Been doing what I can to avoid completely siding with the whole customer service topic thats been arising here and there but I find myself swaying that direction if you don’t get your stuff sorted out Fatshark =/

So what do they do with their current staff?

Also VT engine was made by FS, and their programmers know it like no one else will ever know.

And hiring new people will actually SLOW DOWN development for a while, because old staff would need to spend quite a lot of time to help them accommodate.

What FS really need to do, is to move to a stable engine for VT3 like Unreal or Cry, because it seems that they spend a lot of their time mumbo-jumboing with their engine. But it doesn’t mean that the programmers are bad. It’s just that they have to do 2 things simultaneously - work both on their engine and on the game. And yes, they made this engine, and they have no one to blame but themselves, but that’s a strategical mistake, not technical, because making engine is really hard and they just shouldn’t have done it having this few people.

Backend error 1110 was down to an outage with our backend provider which was resolved during the night.

Had third party providers existed in the days when the Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta was written, you can be sure dealing with them would be one of the noble truths of suffering.

Good to know, but i very much still share the sentiment of Nova.

This is not to say that i will not ever come back, just means i’ll be focused on other things till FS have sorted out the most apparent issues :slight_smile:

Best of luck.
