I would go the extra mile to truly demonstrate Funcom’s good faith and commitment to reversing the “current framework.” Rather than simply replying that they are working to improve or fix the game (Bungivision approves this behavior), it is more serious and honest to set deadlines for - finally - delivering a “stable” and “complete” version of the game. Let’s be serious here: how many weeks? If the game is collecting problems and limitations, this is not the fault of the players.
I would like to emphasize again: who should run after the loss is Funcom itself, because this developer did not comply with what it promised to sell. When the consumer paid the “full” price for a “full game”, there was no warning in the advertisement that the game was still in development or in a “perpetual” testing phase. I did not buy this game to embark on an “access early” phase (even because I do not have the patience to play “demo” or something unfinished). If you stop to think, this is even dishonest with the players. What’s more, be consistent and do not even think about selling new dlcs while the “basic” game can not deliver a stable and complete experience. The consumer is an innocent and injured party in this whole story.
As one greek phrase would say: “acts are fruits, words only leaves”.
Wanting the public to be “eternally” patient and perverting is not fair and professional (without deadlines) and, in practice, suggests that Funcom has “freedom” and autonomy to maintain a “partial” and unsatisfactory game in some respects for an indefinite period.
I know that many (bad) developers - however powerful - can only understand one language: money. And they are willing to do almost anything to satisfy their greed, such as cheating and manipulating the very public who buy their own games. Damn microtransactions, lootboxes and other similar bs are popular, which is a shame. But I wish Funcom were different. I would like the company to understand a simple truth: if they deliver a good and stable game this will generate profit on their own merits and there will be more peace and satisfaction for all the people involved, including their own employees; the rush to launch something “unfinished” and with failures in the trade generates consequences and does not contribute anything to the image of Funcom.
