So for my 100th post I thought I'd say something auspicious:

I'm sick of the unending rain of negative feedback on these forums.

"The Devs suck, they messed this up, they messed that up, wah!" - truncated, amalgamated, and simplified statement of various forum trolls.

It's BETA [REDACTED] ! The game ain't even close to finished. And at least the devs are honest about the fact. How many "finished" games get mid life patches to fix "minor" bugs? My xbox would say a lot.

Yes, the Devs mess up, sometimes nearly catastrophically from the player base point of view. But the answer isn't to say you suck and to question the nature of their relationship with their maternal ancestor. It is instead to politely point out how you feel they went in the wrong direction, perhaps giving examples to state your case, and then make constructive comments as to how perhaps they could approach the solution to the problem differently.

Now some would point out that their transaction system is in place and they are happily taking players money for what is effectively an unfinished product. While I admit that this is a valid point I offer the counter argument that it is only with more money that they will finish the product.

So I respectfully ask that we all attempt to raise the tone of discourse on these forums. Perhaps if we do it will encourage the Devs to be more forthcoming with what is going on. Because if I were in their shoes I wouldn't come anywhere near these forums.

Entirely with you on this one, been around since closed beta and imho the more they add the more fun/challanging the game becomes...

Is it a finished product hell no and we all know it, patience is the mother of virtues they say, so please let's encourage them to give us the product we want instead of insulting them so that they stop caring about the product

Beta Beta Beta...

Time to test some new maps because the old ones (that has been beta tested a lot) is getting old and is making the game less fun. They did add some challenge though. The challenge of not pushing alt+F4 on the "new" city night map.

Netcode, matchmaking and content issues alike had been identified and discussed thoroughly even in closed beta but even now, months in, they persist.
People are getting impatient - it's only natural.

oddly enough we've got dev replies happening in the general forums a lot in the last few days. i think they're man enough to take on the customer trolling wrath it's just some people can't. i understand you want a civilised comunity but it never happens anywhere unfortunately. it can't be stopped and never will be so do your best to make the most and the rest of us live on.

This place was a beacon of hope right up until open beta started.

This post is at least the 3rd "do be polite on the forums" post we've seen in 24 hours. I agree.
Most agree.

Most of the most prolific posters simply can't help themselves though, so do call them out on it - perhaps start re-wording their posts for them. You can do it.

It came down to the devs having to reap what they had sown-

Well, when Garth started to act like a smug ******* to anyone who offered different viewpoints than his own and made fun of players...

Well they should expect the players to be hostile after his stupidity.

There's more to the story than that, like the hugbox mentality.

If the state of the game is volatile ammunition

and non-negative behaviour is C.A.S.E

Then I begin to understand why

Even I sometimes blow up in caustic valley.

By current rate of progress, by the time we have a finished game other mech games are going to have actual neurohelmets, and an almost-ready-to-fly mech pit will cost under a 100 dollars.
