I like Stardock, the people and the ethos. But bringing out a product riddled with bugs is not professional. They should know this. I know a lot of you want to defend them, but they don't deserve it. People who pay good money for something should get something that works as advertised. This is not high school, its not wing it at the last moment. Those of you who are older gamers, professionals will know that you can't get away with this in the real world.
As much as I love what Stardock is, if they don't shape up they are (regretfully) going to deserve to fold. Its on them to release a functional product, not their paying customers to except flawed goods. That's simply the way it is in the market.
Yeah and thats why we need a hundred more threads so everybody can cry out his/her disappoinment? With respect, but its starting to make me angry.
Take it back to RL:
There is a friend who made a mistake. Not conscious, but it happend. He apologize and promised, that he will work hard and eliminate his mistakes.
If this happens for me the case is closed and we can go on. Or you are a stickler for principles and tell your friend every hour in the upcomming years that it was not Ok.
In this case:
There was an apoligize (more than one time). And we can see SD is working.
