I don't need to defend the devs. Their game speaks for itself; they rise or fall on their merits. Nothing some random person on the Internet should make a difference.
I wasn't trying to be aggressive, just pointing out the absurdity of claiming ignorance and then giving such a resolute opinion. Do you always just shout out your thoughts, regardless of any foundation?
What a bunch of nonsense. I did guess at you being a fanboy. Nice to see I hit the mark. Do you not understand the concept of opinions and conjecture? Actually, you know what. Don't even bother answering. I'm done "discussing" with you. It's a huge waste of time. Downvote all you want.
Will be awesome once they add planetary landings if you can go visit the shrine of the Mars lander.
You admit you don't understand a decision or the reasoning behind it, but you're confident enough to say it's either a mistake or dumb decision?
If only game developers listened to random Intenet comments. I'm sure the world would be a much better place...
That's a fair bit aggressive of you, random internet person. I don't understand what made them reach the decision, and I believe either way it'll have a negative impact, but instead of ranting about it, I'll refrain from judging whether it'll be a minor inconvenience or something that really ruins it for new customers. The reason for this is that it's not exactly your standard mmo, so it's hard to tell exactly. Get it now?
That was my opinion on the subject, and opinions are just that. Opinions. But obviously developers should listen to their customer base in general. How do you think they came to the decision in the first place. They listened to the feedback from testers (and whining over losing their stuff) and reached a conclusion. That's fairly normal everyday business practice.
Honestly, I don't know why you decided this needed your fantastic white knighting abilities, but good job I suppose.
I would have written a more sarcastic comment about fanboys rushing to the aid of game developers in response to your snarky ass comment, but I'll let it rest.
