Additionally, where was it stated to be designed this way?
The only source I’ve seen so far is a link to some YouTube video containing a comment posted during a livestream. Yeah. Kind of the least credible way to describe what is ostensibly the most credible claim.
So, multiple people asking about it over the years, official statement during a stream about it + yearlong “do-nothing-about-it” -mentality still wasn’t/isn’t enough?
Too much to ask to be informed properly. As long as the official “newsposters” (not just lately) post stuff including misinformation on numerous occasions, what do we even expect anymore?
Just to clarify: Obbviously all “honest mistakes” (and mosdef no straight up lies!!!1, nonono). Followed by some “Sorry my bad.” - awesome! No guarantees on anything.
I mean scroll up a bit further in that thread and you’ll see the OP admits they will edit the title themselves. And given a warning by Fourdottwoone to the possible consequences.
Seems @Fourdottwoone is a prophet
You know, I’m glad to be hearing this perspective from someone who wasn’t around when Gems of Streaming was happening –
That’s exactly what the gist of what quite a few forum members were saying with regards to official information and responses being addressed in a stream and nowhere else – i.e. it was inadequate and inappropriate ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
But hey, that’s the way it was, that’s what they had time for, and so the fact that the recording of one of the live streams is the most relevant source isn’t that strange, given the context.
And just for future context. The devs PURPOSELY skipping over the Maze banner bug report for 2 years is actually an answer to the report. And not just an “oops we missed it until now.”
That being said. Players should NEVER be editing the title of bug reports. Since that is the devs way of tracking what bugs have been addressed and what haven’t. Players can confuse the devs by mislabeling the threads. And if a dev who has had their coffee and only working 2 days that week makes mistakes. Imagine how often confused devs make mistakes.
Now that they have gone to the trouble of “fixing” maze banner into a +2, +1, -1 banner like the rest. Look forward to +2, +2, -1 banner being monetized or trapped behind a time gap pay wall.
