It’s no longer news that a particular Dev has recently (since Dec 2019) decided to start deleting comments she dislikes in the Bug Reports section ( [Fixed] Bounty Hunter Only Giving 1 Trophy, Despite 4.7 Patch Mentioning 2 Trophies ) with the excuse that the intention is to make Bug Report threads easier to read and act upon: it would indeed be a valid approach, if the evidence didn’t recurrently show that the posts deleted as ‘irrelevant’ are exclusively those with negative comments about the Developer/QA, whereas other equally irrelevant comments that are more supportive of the Devs are allowed to stay on, especially illustrated by how the Devs themselves post non-bug related comments in the Bug Section ( [Fixed] Gw score bug or working as intended? ).
A couple of weeks ago, that Dev sent me a private message that included the sentence “Go make a thread about the ways you hate the devs in the feedback section.”: that particular sentence was very illustrative of how dismissive this Company is of players’ feedback, once they have negatively labeled a specific player in their minds (i.e. Facts presented are irrelevant, because this or that player ‘hates’ the Devs).
A week later, she publicly posted that “If you’d like to leave feedback about how you’d like the Class to work or complain about Devs please do so in the Feedback section of the forum or the Official news post. I promise I won’t delete or touch your posts about Devs there at all as long as they don’t break forum rules” ( [Reported] Barbarian Class 3rd Trait not working as described ): since we now have the dev’s blessing to do so, and paired with the constant inflow of actions/inactions by this Company in the past year or two, I thought it may be useful to start a thread evidencing things that deserve compiling for posterity, in the hopes that no new sudden rule will appear that will result in the facts provided here being modified/deleted, or some excuse being found to lock the thread.
As such, I encourage any participation to remain factual and civil, so that the data can continue to be compiled and easily accessed by new players so that they may set their expectation$ of the game and company accordingly.
Similarly, those who find themselves incompatible with the nature of this thread are encouraged to mute it so it does not disrupt your forum experience.
Either way, the plan is to start compiling as much as possible about how the playerbase has been treated lately (Cedric medals release, Chaos portals drop rates, Epic Tasks, PvP Gold, New Guild Guardians in Gold chests, GW Compensation in Switch denied by the Devs…), as and when time allows.
