The OP was never about claiming that one or the other is flawless or perfect, or even comparing them to each other. It was to point out that both games are buggy and unbalanced as hell. If you can't admit that, then you're either a fanboi or have an ax to grind aganist Elemental.
Who do you think you are, that you can determine what I am? Do you know me? Are you some kind of supreme, omnipotent being? No and no. Then what do you expect to gain from offering such ridiculous choices, as "I either agree with you" or "I fall into the category of your chosing".
No I do not agree with you, I do believe that the OP was pointless to begin with, heavily biased by your own desire to justify yourself. I do believe that it is in fact insulting to compare the two games and quite frankly I couldnt care less what you think of me.
Oh and a nice way of contradicting yourself:

The AI is not better than Elemental's (i.e. pretty much useless without heavy cheating). There are graphic/performance bugs as bad as Elemental's late-turn-slowdown.
Nah, clearly no comparison there. None at all.
As for the 'notion' of your OP, that is: let's forgive them because 'at least' they were honest about their failures. I wrote this once already today in a different thread: Honesty is an admirably quality, but it is neither a substitute or an excuse for the lack of competency. I could care less how honest they are about failing, as long as they are failing.
