Look I get your rant.
I came to this thread from the one that triggered it. .
I do not think people are demanding what you say (its hard to tell, its a little loose)
I personally like WH.
You do realise that most of the discussions here are legitimate in origin?! (People dont all have such free time as to just write random unthought out stuff (clearly I do))
Kirksty on many threads you are a warrior for WH.
(You arent alone- I do it too)
Minimalising peoples issues the way you do makes it hard for me to believe you are listening.
Its nothing personal to you- as immature I am, you are one of the few on this board as passionate an big mouthed as I am.
WH arent sore with these forums and they do read theough them.
VS six weeks ago these forums are DEAD.
They now actually stand a chance of serving a useful function.
I treat WH (as a studio of individuals) as the artists I imagine they are.
Ive met a few artists, and most thrive when away from constant negativity. I understand why WH downplay their time on these forums.
But… they are big boys with big boy shorts.
People arent attacking the team or individuals; we are discussing their product, generally in practical ways…
They can take it.
These forums were created for backers.
For years they would have been a great place filled with supportive and excited/passionate words.
In time that will come around again.
In the meantime we alm tey to steer their ship towards delivering us the best product.
With seven billion people in the world, no doubt more than one method/way to deliver that product will be suggested.
Otherwise: do the forums only exist as a support channel?
RPG forums can prove some of the best…
The variation of userbase (albeit generally readers with a penchant for fantasy) provides a great cross section and a diverse place for talk.
Kudos to you for honoring board members in the videos to watch thread… Kirksty: you are a champ for WH/KCD… many here are just as passionate, but perhaps less vocal.
I know I only signed up to the forum cause so many naysayers insisted the software couldnt work properly; and yet everyone I knew who had the game had near flawless game experiences (or very infrequent issues of no relevance) .
I wanted to bring balance to what was being represented… and ‘one angry person telling ten’ was order of the day.
The game needs change.
Straight up I would list some assets that need fixing to improve performance.
Then general gameplay imbalances…
Then world/immersion breaking issues
Then Id ask for a self removing HUD (some screens dont like permanent high contrast edges)
Then for the game ‘backgammon’ (I will pay ten euro for that) to be included (one of the older gambling games; fit the realm well)
Some of these things are for the game in general and fixing them helps sell the product… some are personal preference.
WH choose their path- some of us like that path and choose to walk along it.
Many forum posters around game launch wqnted the game to be made for them/vastly different.
Without a lot of work and tonne of menu options the game cannot be all things to all people.
It is however a ‘master of some’ aspects and is rare to find on the marketplace.
Niche game lovers will make up the forum userbase.
As well as peeps with product issues and RPG nutters in general.
Lets see who sticks around!
