I genuinely don’t get it. I’m a long time player and occasional forum user. I’d love to spend more time in the forums but man alive, it wears you down. There are some users whose EVERY post is negative - bashing the devs, the moderators, the publisher and the game. I don’t get it: if I hated something that much I’d step away. I’d move onto something else - for my own mental well-being.
The fury and vitriol that’s meted out here is unlike anything I’ve seen. So people didn’t like lycanthropy, the gnome-a-palooza thing backfired a bit, the AI has a bug, people haven’t found every single new gnome yet, people don’t like the campaign stuff…OK…but it is just a game! It’s a game that I love and have ploughed a hell of a lot of time and cash into and that’s fine, but it is JUST a game.
This relentless bashing of the devs and accusations (usually pretty baseless) does no-one any good - it’s like mass trolling and rare posts of positivity are trashed.
I’d love to see more posts from the devs on here but I totally get why they stay away for the most part as everything they post is then quoted and dissected and torn apart.
I wish this place felt less toxic but fear that the atmosphere is poisoned for good now
