Steam reviews situation

How could they know finishing this thing was akin to winning the powerball?

They couldnt know - But not knowing that they couldnt finish, isnt the fault of the Devs or of the Game, its their own fault ^^ so, writing bad reviews because they cant complete the game, because they are completionist and need their completion fix is like a smoker who tells you the Cigarette industry is the fault he started smoking.

I suspected this may have been the case. I actually felt the need to change mine due to the endgame. I’ll change it back if/when fixed. I don’t think it’s unjust, especially as long as people explain it with a written review. Game should have been early access. If it was EA, I’d still give it a positive review.

The last thing to do in V2 is to test and/or min/max gear. Having an almost non-existent end-game due to low red drops and low green dust is a serious problem with the game. For the overwhelming majority of players they run smack in to this brick wall at some point. They can no longer make any meaningful progress. This is a problem with the game NOT the players. If someone asked me when i had 80 hours in the game if they should get it I’d say HELL YES!!! If someone asked me now while I have 375ish hours I’d tell them to wait until reds and green dust are fixed.

This game had a rough launch, the core gameplay is amazing and the end-game is very broken. This is exactly what happened to wildstar. A rough launch, amazing leveling fun, dead end-game. That game died because the devs were not quick enough to fix the end-game. So, when people got to the end game they just quit. By the time they finally got around to fixing end-game it was far too late. I honestly worry that will happen again here too because, for whatever reason, they don’t see the red/green issue as high priority.

This is the only game where I’ve been active on the forum. I want this game to succeed. I think it has a lot of great things going for it. I just hope that the devs can learn from the mistakes of their peers. Look at the numbers of people leaving. Look at the same type of negative posts after long play times and see that there is a major problem. Please…fix the red/green problem soon. You could simply give as much green dust to everyone as they have blue dust as a temporary fix while you implement whatever you want.

Save the playerbase. Save Vermintide 2.

Same thing happened to me - I was a little ways behind everyone, they all went through the gate and then I got a surprise horde murder party.

It’s literally in the next sentence!

Or do you want me to tell you how these things should be implemented exactly? No problem, welcome to my suggestions post paragraphs 1.1 and 5.7. And I can give you another 3 possible solutions for green dust problem offhand, that are more ugly, but are even easier to implement, if very fast temporary fix is needed.

The changes might be a couple of weeks too late, though. Some players will surely return, but it might be so, that majority will not, until a massive improvement to the progression system is done. It doesn’t mean that hotfixes are not needed, though. It means, that there are priorities to be taken. And yet again, all that stuff is already described under that link.

Is there a warning though, that you can’t complete this game, unless quitting your job and leaving your family somewhere on the frontpage?

I think this is the first time someone’s gotten me mad during my time on the forum. Like real mad. I’ve heard a lot of dumb things, i’ve been insulted dozens of times, but this statement, that’s something. It is so dreadful, that it basically becomes beautiful, because it explains all the problems in the world that humanity is facing and all the reasoning behind them.

The whole need to complete everything is rooted in entitlement and the obsession to have EVERYTHING. So in way, you are right NikKotovski, it does explain all the problems in the world that humanity is facing and all the reasoning behind them. People need to grow up and accept the fact that they cannot have everything. They need to learn the word “No”.

Average user: “We’ve got basically nothing.”
Eldyrus: “WOAH! Look who wants everything.”

Also, wtf necrobump?

You have got a fully functioning game. That does not count as “nothing”

What you want is something in addition to the fully functional game - additional content. So yes, it is entitlement.

You have a laughable definition of “fully functional.”

I’m imagining you in a burning house telling everyone that everything is just fine. Fully functioning…lmfao.

If your definition of “fully functioning” is that you can successfully use the move and attack controls…then even then it’s not fully functioning.

I’ve played early access games that were performing better, were more polished and had less bugs than VT2.

You do realize that white knighting your beloved game only hurts it,especially if someone believes your “fully functioning” tales,buys it and then experiences the “early access beta stage” state the game is in and thus gets pissed,leaves a bad review and tells his friends not to touch it with a ten foot pole?

It is “fully functional” because you are able to play the game and complete all the missions. So far, I have over 100 hours + into the game and have been able to play each mission multiple times. There are bugs - yes but these are being patched. At this point, when I play a game, it is uncommon to running into any game breaking bug (although this was not always the case). So yes, it is “fully functional”. You are able to play the game and complete the missions.

All the stuff you guys are complaining about are very minor and you are blowing things out of proportion.

Man, there are so many kids complaining “are we there yet” on these forums

I have recommended this game to 4 of my friends and my brother. Every single one of them has loved the game - bugs, vermin, and all. This is because it is a GOOD GAME. So credit where credit is due.

As was stated, your white knight attitude is only going to hurt everyone who actually cares about the game and wants to see the company succeed.

People are turning their backs on this in droves. Q_Qing that they just don’t appreciate the beta-state bs they’re being fed doesn’t fix anything.

Expect people to provide feedback on a feedback forum. When multiple people at all levels of play and all parts of the world come here to provide feedback about the exact same things, whining about their complaints is asinine.

But yeah… Nah… Just keep being toxic to anyone who provides the dev with honest feedback or who isn’t blowing smoke up FS’ arse.

lol “toxic”

The thing that is hurting the game is all the bad reviews people are putting out over minor things such as “I cannot get any red items” and “This game is too difficult”. I find it hard to believe that anyone doing something like this is interested in what is best of the game. It is like using the logic “I want to help the game, by sabotaging the reviews of the game and getting less people to play it…”

Making recommendations on forum is one thing, but thread after thread of whining is something else entirely. It reminds me of the world of warcraft forums. For context, recently the developer said that they are not going to be adding high elves as a playable race. The Wow forums are going nuts over this. Children crying and whining because they cannot get there way. Unfortunately, these forums are starting to become the same way.

Dishonest marketing and a game being pushed out in an incomplete and buggy beta state are not minor issues. They could have just done Early Access. They should have.

Leaving a positive review solely for the sake of white knighting and fanboying is harmful, because there’s scores more sensible, normal people than there are vapid fanboys and if people get tricked into buying a bugfest, they’re not going to put up with it. You can leave a negative review while encouraging people to check back later.

Other people have standards.

Or maybe I am just more grateful than other people and see the cup as half full.

Have you ever heard of such a thing, called revolution, when people try to save themselves, other people and their state by doing bad things? Why do they do this? Because otherwise horrible things are bound to happen.
