I agree with this, let’s say I still “buy” this argumentations.
But did you really skip testlive for this dlc? I got it for free, and if I didn’t, I would have bought it. I don’t see it as a cashgrab. I think it’s good that you keep adding optional content while you keep fixing stuff.
But to be honest, I didn’t almost play anything after the 500 bugs patch. Because you know, all my thralls had 25% health due to a new bug, etc etc. So really, from somebody that still agrees with that statement, I would also have prefered some nice bug fixes before getting that dlc.
Now I got the DLC (for free due to that amazing event) and I see the game is as bugged as it was last month, and the new dlc (incentive to come back) is also full of bugs.
So I don’t feel like playing, but rather waiting for you to fix many many things. Do you think I can be kinda happy with this?
Remember, I find your argumentation valid. I have the DLC (free of cost). I want to play Conan. But given the current state, I cant. So yeah, not very happy xD.
Maybe now we, I, and you can understand why so many people, which maybe don’t buy your argumentation, or paid for the dlc, are kinda angry. With more and more “supporters” (not fanboys or defendors) being more and more critic after all this happened.
The perception thing is also true. You know you can explain and reason with total logic many things, and still get people to view it differently. It happens with many things in life.
I don’t think there was a huge hype regarding this cosmetic DLC. You know, I play in official server, talk with clan mates, lurk all forums. I got more or less an idea, and nobody was going mad so they could get this DLC released asap.
They (we) did regarding bugs. Even if there are separate teams etc. But the dlc comes first, where game is sometimes not very enjoyable due to those bugs. And, all that argumentation somewhat falls when the DLC itself has bugs which I don’t think 3d artists will fix.
Also I read all official servers have (had?) non aggro from mobs. That is a new bug, did it come with dlc? Im asking because really, I didn’t launch the game to check the dlc, as the stats / cold resist bugs appeared on forums faster than I could launch the game.
