Actually, that is not true. If you want to play real life in a video game then I feel bad for you. But if you want to be accurate within a company or any agreement (signing up for a clan) there is what is called an agreement document overseen by a lawyer and also lays out the consequences. Even then the leader of a company (CEO/President),clan or whatever you would like to play pretend with has more control then those that are not of the same rank but still must give a list of consequences to what will happen if you join, which thank the gods for laws, you really can’t totally screw someone over unless you are doing something illegal which you would eventually be caught for or just lose your reputation over.
You are making it overly realistic (kinda but not really because you are cherry picking on the behalf of your argument). This is not real life, it is a video game with a broken or not thought out, useless mechanic. And if it was real life the simplicity you put behind it is silly and not at all realistic. Why are the fanboys so hard at accepting or grasping that the devs of a franchise,game and brand you care about and pay them for aren’t delivering and don’t give a crap about you (that’s real life) but when you pay money for a finished product up front, said product should be delivered as it was promised. I played Conan Exiles beta pc. I have played a lot of Funcom games enjoy Funcom as a company, I enjoy Conan as a series I enjoyed the work of Robert E Howard.
I also played AOC which had tons of bugs but devs actually responded and made drastic patch releases, as well as not releasing it on consoles and this was during a time where Beta testing to the public was rare without a key and early access with steam did not yet exist/fully exist yet.
But this is ridiculous and you making excuses for a company and it’s development team that charged you a full price for a product, is sad and counterintuitive, if anything you are enableing them and many other developers and companies to believe it is fine to screw over fans, customers because 'Hurr durr they might notice me if I crusade for them and shun anyone’s else that calls this company and it’s development team out, and though it’s true what they say I will rant and continue to crusade because, I simply can’t accept I got ripped off for a game I really believed in and followed from announcement oh, and everyone else is just whining when they post things I am unable to grasp on the forums…!"
Should we start having Conan lawyers and Conan Agreement documents now before joing a clan, because you know, that’s how real life works…?
