That hasn't been my experience. I've seen TWI respond to many problem threads personally. I am fairly confident they read them, at the very least, even if they don't respond to all of them.TW employees ignore user posts here regarding issues that are a bit more complicated than "Install X file"
I agree with you mostly, however I do not think it was a lose-lose situation.Listen, I'm all for going easy on TWI, but this is a bull**** excuse.
It's like being upset that the last 15 minutes of the movie you paid to watch in theaters was done with paper cutouts and the director providing voice overs before him shrugging and going "sorry guys, we need more time to finish the movie".
Yeah, people are right to be irked that the product is incomplete, but I can see why TWI felt pressured into releasing the unfinished product and I sympathize with that.
It's a lose-lose situation.
I had a good laugh at that comment. Far from it my friend. I think you missed my point though. There are a lot of people who can and are playing the game because it works for them. Minus the small bugs every game has before being patched up. They just aren't filling up the forums with, "The game WORKS!!!" threads. I can refresh the server list right now and see a ton of servers that are full or close to it. That being said, you'll always have issues with other setups in the PC community, this is where intelligent feedback and patching for optimization comes in. People just need to be a bit more patient.I think Brushy Bill is a dev in disguise. There is simply no excuse to sell a game that doesn't work. Point, blank, period.
Actually, its ignorance from people like you that really tend to bother me. You profile every single person that has something non completely positive to say on the forum as a whiner. Yes, some people may seem completely irrational. But, all I see even more than this whining, is people like you bashing people with a valid complaint.
Other than that, you act like PC gaming has some kind of traditional heritage of releasing buggy games. I think this is caused mainly because people like you put up with it. RO2 was one of the very last games I was expecting to be any good on release and would dare pre order in the next year or so. It's almost a compliment to TW how much expectations most people here seemed to have had. I would say, for the most part, that this is being handled in a very mature yet validly upset manner. With most of the people posting at least.

Sure, they'll be a small core group of people who hang on, like in RO 1, but that's not what they want at all.
Here's hoping for the best, it has potential...
I'm hoping Metacritic isn't too harsh, as that's what it all comes down to these days.
It's just poorly optimized, nobody can deny that. I'm not that knowledgeable about the ability for games to patch this, so I don't know if that's fixable.[url]http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/red-orchestra-2-heroes-of-stalingrad[/URL]
It's already beginning.
I don't want this game to fail either. But at the same time I don't want TWI to get away with ripping people off $30-$40. They need to clean this mess up, and fast.

The voice of maturity and responsibilityI've been a part of PC gaming since the early 90s. Why, in almost 20 years, can we not get past this? Why is it so hard to say "hey guys, this game is obviously still broken, let's delay a little"? Why are we treating this like it's ok?
When I get anything else that's broken, I return it and get my money back. I don't wait for the manufacture to repair it for me. Games that are released unfinished reflect poorly on their developers. Look at the difference of opinion between Valve and Obsidian.
We, as gamers, shouldn't have to put up with this. Throwing your hands up and saying "oh well, that's how it was and always shall be!" is just lazy. Demand better. Complain. Ask for your money back. Developer should know that it's not ok to take our money for broken goods.
...Especially after a public beta! Seriously? The beta didn't tip them off that some things needed work?
