Pandering has reached critical mass

  • It has become hard to stomach floating in the sea of pandering and begging that these forums have become since their creation, but now that some (very few) privileged individuals have keys and others don't it has become borderline insufferable. I say borderline because I still will trudge through this Shawshank pipeline of brown nosing and lap warming to get updates on features, gameplay, and official replies.

    If I thought posting here a number of times or prostrating ones self would nudge my odds even a modicum, I would be leading the charge for archival knowledge of the games features and defending every single inexplicable design decision as though it was hand of god too.

    I fear this will bring a lot of hate from those already invested in these efforts, but my intention of this post is not to do so. I'm really just pleading that we get back to actually discussing (not just defending with zealotry) the now partially playable game instead of finding new ways to tactically try and skew our odds of a random distribution from a multi billion dollar corportation who has as much interest in our individual opinions as they do the price of tea in china.

    I just find it interesting that those who are critical of the experience, as it's appearing in streams and the like, seem to be thoroughly convinced that anyone who disagrees with them is begging for a beta key or is simply a slavering fan boy. It's fine to be critical, since we're interested in hearing what people have to say, provided that it's presented in a constructive fashion. We also like positive feedback regarding what's working.

    Why not simply take the statements that are made at face value without resorting to ad hominem attacks? Let alone starting an entire thread dedicated to demeaning the rest of the forum community?

    I'll be locking this up now.
