JaxTeller718 Posted December 28, 2018 Share Posted December 28, 2018 I don't know what you're talking about. Note that this happens every time. This is not special to A17. Every patch and also the recent experimental release. A flashfire of negative reviews from a handful of people who don't like (insert change). A week or two tops and the episode passes. From day 1 people have bought into a tower defense game and now some are even demanding that zombies should not be allowed to get to them if they employ the amazing strategy of being below the zombies. A tower defense game where the enemies cannot possibly reach you is some serious schizophrenia. =) Brother, I have been here a few years, and I have seen with my own eyes and experiences the reaction each Experimental and each Alpha received. And yes there have been moments, extended moments where people were upset about changes and were vocal but the overall feeling was NEVER this negative before. If you keep thinking this reaction is just part of the normal Experimental/Alpha release Im telling you you are going to make a huge mistake here. A year and a half is a long time, gamers have grown, new games have come out and raised the bar even higher. There are WAY more EA games out there. Customers are way more choosy with how they spend their time now. You simply can not dismiss this as just another round of Alpha noise. I have read every review, every post and every status update on this game for YEARS. Probably way more than the entire team and please please believe me and others when we try to explain that this Alpha has sucked the life out of your fans. People are playing, but no one is excited. Server populations are generally down among the smaller servers who usually see nice numbers. You have a real chance of losing a lot of very strong supporters here. VERY faithful fans who have never uttered a bad word about this game are doing so now. Stop focusing on the people who are mad over diggers or better AI. Those aren't the customers who you should be worried about losing. They can adapt to those changes. The people who are upset over the core of the game being changed, the fun being removed, the complexity being streamlined, the overall pointless feeling this game now has are the ones who will walk and never look back. I REALLY don't want to see that fate befall this one. I've seen it before and it sucks. This is not a handful of people. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
