Does anyone else experience this? - May 26th 2012, 08:14 PM

I play games.

In these games, the developers change the balance of the gameplay.
Inevitably every change will have people who support it, and people who do not support it.

But whenever I do not support something, it is because it is a pointless attempt.

For example, let's say there is a game where you can move around as an alien and fight humans. You have two options of attack, one is where you don't move and do a strong attack, the other you go flying in the air and damage the enemy slightly (nowhere near as much as the other attack)

This creates a stale gameplay where essentially the aliens are sitting around corners waiting for the chance to be able to use their strong attack to win fights.

so the developers thought it was a grand idea to introduce new features into the mobility attack, and increase the damage. They also nerfed the high damage attack and made it more difficult to use.

The issue here is I saw ahead of time that what they were doing was pretty well reversing the incentive to use an ability, they weren't merging them to force people to really heavily consider using both in certain situations.

So I complained, explained what should have been changed, showed why. People pretty much laughed and told me I don't understand enough nor have played enough to understand the changes.

Now, a year and a half later I come back to this game and suddenly the people are saying the exact same thing i've been saying long before anyone had that kind of opinion.

It's pretty fucking pathetic when people, especially adults, are more childish in thought than I am. I mean developers, who should know a lot more about the game in-and-out than I, are making blatant mistakes.

This is true in a lot of games I play. I ignore the fact the developers are complete idiots, in my opinion, and I just keep playing.

Does anyone else find that people just don't think things through thoroughly, and they never have a voice to explain their reasoning? It's like watching little sheep following their master and since I don't do that, i'm the outcast. I'm the bad guy. Just because I show them the reality of the situation, they stop talking or ignore me. They can't handle the truth of the shit they're getting fed, until they learn for themselves it is indeed shit. By then it's too late.

most likely, your game's community listens only to what they want to hear. I mean anyone would rather hear praise about the new change rather than why its harmful.
