Yeah, not defending them. Just trying to understand how they're thinking to behave like this.
Their behavioral concerns aren't just in how they've communicated. It's also in their work produced.They patched TWICE per month EVERY month for Feb, Mar, Apr, May, June.And then ZERO in July, Aug, Sept.Something has changed big time, and it's not just communication.

It's extremely difficult to communicate with a community- especially one that has a hostile portion of it. I've experienced this first-hand and that's why we have a Communications manager, it's why you can get a degree in Media Communications and get a extremely well paying job just being the middleman between a company and its player base. Anybody with any experience doing that knows that the opposite actually happens when you're inexperienced and you're confronted with a really interactive community. ~ especially when you have less than good news ~ You become less inclined to communicate even if it's just to shoot a text or email. I can't explain it but anybody that's experienced that firsthand and grind thru it knows that's whats happening now. It's just human nature to pull back.I was fortunate enough to be part of something that was able to hire somebody that knew had to do that, these guys have just got to ride it out

blah blah blah, another one coward blah
Agreed, subs and GTTs should have been prioritized. But IMO they need to be put in place at the exact same time.
Please understand that unlike during InDev, we are forced to communicate only once per week at most.
The writing of this reply has taken a bit more than a full man-day.
You do not know any of this. It is possible that if they charged monthly from the start game would have been long dead (number of players much lower than what we have now). So stop pretending you have all the answers. I have nothing against subs though. I'm just bored to the death by the forum experts..It is what it is.
Smurf you know this game won't be around until New Year. Quit making excuses for these(?) people(?). Their arrogant responses to their customers when they actually do post on the forums just shows how out of touch the dev(s?) is. If they were working another job their company wouldn't be 100k usd in debt becuase they needed to pay themselvesHow do you not know your company is in default? How do you go on vacation, not tell your customers, and blame them for being upset when you come back from a 2 month radio silence only when you see your company is in liquidation because of a forum post, when you are trying to successfully run a small business?
