I am not sure if I am allowed to ask the CEO this, but I will anyways. I am tired of buying games that are big disapointments when games come out. I really really hate, release game early and patch later. This is why I stayed away from Elemental even though I was happy with Gal Civ 2 and it's first 2 expansions. Never got Twilight yet.
What brought me back to elemental after doing my home work? After reading how unstable the game Was, and how disapointing the game was, and how even now alot of people don't play the game but see potential in it. From what I gather, I shouldn't be getting this game.
I am so dispointed with Civ V, that I am finally starting to loose hope with that game now. So I am looking else where. Why did I come back here? Well you manned up. You said it was your fault for the release of the game. You admited you made a mistake. You apologized. I am impressed. A person admitting they fucked up. A company admitting they screwed up. I appreciate this. I am also impressed that you are giving your first expansion game away to those who bought the game on day one and up till end of December I believe. Sadly, I coudn't get the game in time for the offer.
So now, I want to get a new game. I want a TBS game. So I have done my homework again, and it still seems I should stay away. So my question to you sir, is, why should I get it? I found a copy of the Limited Edtion of your game, so it will be costing me $80 for it. Also I would want the expansion as well. Since I will not be getting it for free and will be spending more money to get it, why should I?
The reason I am asking, is I would like to hear what you say. From the articles I have read that have quoted you, I can see you are hurt. This is your baby. I even recall you were telling people not to buy your game. I like Stardock. I think it's great. So now that you have a new patch out, do you still recomend that I stay away from your baby?
So I am curious, do you still recoment people to stay away? I know Stardock has given refunds for Elemental, but I believe this will not be the case, so I have to extra make sure I am making the correct decision, espically since I want that Dragon in the Limited Edtion.
Yes I know, this might be asking for much, but will I be able to get the expansion for free as well, or will it be offered as a discount? The reason I ask, after all, if I buy the Limited Edtion, (btw I love your article on Elementals DRM, another reason why I would love to support you) I will be paying $85 so I just want to make sure, it is the right decision.
I hope you have a great day, and I looking forward to see how your baby grows.
