Seriously you'd think that stardock was some bosnian girl throwing puppies into rivers. The level of vitriol and anger is ridiculous. None of you haters could have done tihs better none of you. Have a big mug of STFU.

 

Seriously by the level of anger her ei keep expecting to see Michael Bay post a 50,000 bounty on stardock. Maybe SD should just shut the forums down and work on the game. Seems there is more time spent reading idiots posting than there should be. You don't like the game get a refund and get the #$@$ out of StarDock's house. No one is making you buy this game. No one put a gun to your head and said you had to buy this.

Maybe those who are so angry and have nothing better to do should seek some serious therapy. I hate Glen Beck but you don't see me cruising his website posting idiotic statements. My lord if my 14yo daughter behaved like you guys i'd be washing her mouth out and grounding her. Maybe a few groundings would be a good idea.

I think you have this forum confused with someplace else...

yeah, i've seen far wose places in all honesty. there as many comforters as there are trolls.

i don't think stopping discussion is part of stardock's philosophy. they're bigger than that. better to say that the devs should know where we are if they want us, but otherwise not worry about us too much. ie, it's important for them to remember that discussing with us (or even reading our opinions) is only optional for them.

And making inflammatory threads about the community is any better?

Oh my.

 

 

BTW, I actually think there are a lot of good ideas floating around in some of the sections. Selective reading is key.

I don't care for that comment.  My wife's uncle's mother's best friend friend's daughter's grandfather's mistress is from Bosnia.  Why does it have to be a Bosnian girl?  Why a girl?  Why puppies?!  WTF did puppies deserve to be thrown into rivers for?  You cruel bastard.

Puppies need to be nerfed, not thrown into rivers.

Their cuteness (and chewing) is overpowered.

If you buy a new car from a dealer and it has no engine you would be upset too.  Some people care more about video games, than they do about cars, so to them buying a video game that isn`t all there is pretty much the same thing.  I can understand that I guess......

I agree with you that many of the people`s attitudes on the forums is.... "un-productive".  It doesn`t really help the situation.

I used to think that it was just a simple disagreement, getting out of hand, but apparently Stardock seems to be deleting (fortunatly) all the really angry posts.  However I managed to read some of them before they were moderated.....

I am upset that the game isn`t what it should have been too..... I am angry that I paid money for a product that didn`t work.  They are trying to fix it!  If you have nothing productive to offer Just LET THEM DO IT!!!!!

If a car dealer says, we are sorry we made a mistake, we will install the engine in the car for you at no cost it will just take a bit of time.  You probably would calm down a bit?  Also you wouldn`t be telling them what to do either!  You might offer a [suggestion] like I want a v8 instead of a v6.... do you think that could be possible?  They might do it (although with cars probably not, but cars and video games are different in that aspect).  You can also state your opinion.... I think if you changed the color that would be cool!  It might happpen....     

I do believe that Game Companies should be held accountable for the game they produce..... but enough is enough.  Let them work!

sorry chief.  we have every right to be angry and to have our angry posts deleted by forum mods.  I have been a loser...er, gamer... for decades and I am really getting tired of the state of games at release the last few years.   the fact is that a decade ago if you bought a game it worked(even if it sucked).  i realize that a game's internal organs are infinitely more complex these days, but that is no excuse.  don't use complicated graphics if you can't do it right.  i don't want great graphics, i want great gameplay.  most importantly, i want a finished product.  too many are shoving games on the shelves with the intention of patching problems once they get some of our cash to pay for it.  it is wrong.  it makes people angry.  so they complain to the company that has sold them the lemon, how is that wrong?  go back to licking stardock's arse and but your tongue to good use.

I told the devs that in the beta and time after time they ignored me. Not only that but they added Wargs, which are just big puppies that are less cute but do far more chewing and are therefore horribly unbalanced.

They totally have to fix this NOW or I'm not going to play Elemental again for another 3 hours!

I'd go a step further and shut the internet down.  Most likely if this were shut down, people would just complain elsewhere.  

 

In fact, all water-coolers should be removed from office buildings until further notice.

I know, like seriously, right?

I mean, we knew that they wouldn't have enough time to balance Wargs. And OMG only Empires get them - so imba.

Kingdoms are gimped now. Wargs >>>>> Horses.

Wargs should have more upkeep - I mean all the poop bags you'd need should cost more gold. Oh, they should require horses because you have to feed a horse to a warg to keep him from chewing your face off. And the kennel, it should raze every 3 turns because of the warg's chewing.

How could they miss this?!

Actually falconne, this system is in fact a BBS, forum is only a term that has risen in the past few years to define this form of messaging, implying that you're allowed something as silly as free speech on it. The nerve!

We need to remove all combustible material.  The reason is that once you shut down the Internet and remove the water coolers, people will resort to their phones.  So we'll need to shut those down too.  Soon afterwards they'll want to send smoke signals.  So let's be proactive and prevent that from being possible.

A few years ago, I would have been worried about the newspapers but most of them are dying off and most people can't read them anyways.

Maybe progress needs to be nerfed.


I mean, did anyone flame someone via smoke signals and cave drawings? Or even Sanskrit or Hieroglyphics?

No.  Back in those days they just toppled the statues, chiseled the Hieroglyphics they didn't like off the walls, and forbid certain names to be mentioned.  Hmm... doesn't sound much different.
