Wah, wah, wah, go whine and cry all day long. As if the devs give a crap what those babies have to say. It's pretty much every fandom of different games such as Tekken, CoD, Fortnite, etc..... Spending their lives whining and complaining.
There’s a reason devs don’t (and are sometimes instructed not to) visit forums, and the title of that thread over there is one of them.
If a dev spends 2 hours reading and analysing the 1100 posts in that thread that’s 2 hours they’re not working on the game, ironically perpetuating the very thing that thread is arguing about, not to mention the general public has very little insight into the feasibility and reasoning behind certain design decisions.
Additionally, most developers and coders aren’t media trained and aren’t authorised to speak on behalf of a brand or company in public; official statements and discourse are handled through official people and channels.*
It is the role of the outward-facing members of the team to create short, actionable executive summaries of what players are saying about a game, adding them to internal sentiment reports, and I wouldn’t be surprised if @ManteoMax
has done so already
