that's because it is, yes they have my money, but they wont be getting anymore, that means its a failure, it also means that any future sequel will be looked over by myself and my friends, but by far the worst failure of this game is the devs utter refusal to take feedback, time and time again people are posting the same things, be that larger games (which we know can be done due to the mod), dropping renown in MP, Tac cog in ranked etc.
add to that the repetitive gameplay, the bad missions (which people have been asking to sort out since pre release) on and on it goes, so how long must I tolerate bad game design?
so yes, even after so much time sunk into this game, I consider it a failure.
The devs posted that larger games were not being implemented due to potential net code issues. I would like to see games where you can field 1,000+ points.
They did listen to us about holo fields and pulsars.
They did listen to us about space marine chapters.
The did listen to us about renown free MP games (check out ranked play).
They did listen to us about bad missions (data/assassination/station).
There are other things that need looking at, who says they aren't?
As to repetitive game play, what do you expect from an RTS set in space using only three dimensions?
You've spent £30.00 for several hundred hours. At worst this entertainment has cost you £0.15 per hour.
1: the mod has increased points allowances, showing that it can be done.
2: They did listen on holo fields, the did not listen on pulsars, they are still not regular lances with a % to hit more often.
3: They did not listen to us on space marine chapters, this was clearly already going to be implemented, so its a good design choice.
4: they did not listen to us on about renown as MP ranked still has renown, we (as in those of us that agree)wanted renown gone from MP, its not needed, its a single player mechanic, and a good one for that.
5: they have not listened to us about missions, as these missions are still one sided affairs, unless lucky, space station assault still has full fleet + station vs just a fleet, we wanted a slight tweak in favour of defence, not massive advantage, also rams still mess up the station, I could go on about the others but the issues are well known.
6: yes there are other things to look at, sadly the other things also include issues they should have solved by now, or issues they have caused by not listening to the player base.
7: I expect more depth to the game, for example, I play Epic Armageddon, worse graphics etc. by far, and it has a lot more depth.
8: its not all about money, its about longevity and enjoyment, yes the company has my money, but will they have any more? not very likely, not unless the devs change direction, were it just myself, I could understand, however people are dropping this game like an old habit.
