It's interesting how you spend your time in a topic about improvements you claim you don't need.
I want patches and improvements, therefore I am a hater. Very interesting way to look at it.
I like seeing things through, I'm patient like that. 15 years and counting. Have you ever heard about health issues that could be fully resolved if addressed early on, before they snowball into long-lasting, serious complications? That's also something I'm interested in. I work in maintenance, it's my job to be able to spot issues early on. Fix small problems before they cause big problems? That's wher CDPR is right now: fire-fighting issues they caused by not addressing them early on. Brushing them under the rag, looking the other way-- do that and you will see your company going down, hard.
Being a fan is not about defending shortcomings. It's about pointing them out. Because if you don't, soon there will be no company to defend. I still strongly believe that the downfall can be prevented, even if it already started. Epic taking over CDPR? Very likely. CDPR claiming it's not the case? Every company would, that's how business works. You don't expose your weaknesses to competition. And if Epic drops the "strategic partnership"? You think CDPR will be able to sustain themselves? If they were able to, there would be no need for "strategic partnership". I've seen it before. Where is Bioware?
I'm not sure exactly where this comment was directed. But In case it was directed at my previous post. I want to be very clear.
In my original post I said the game has needed and still does need work. It has had and does have issues, It is not perfect. I have in other threads reported bugs and issues, as well as expressed ideas for improvements and features I would like to see.
MY ONLY point was that there seems to be this mentality that "CDPR did not make the change I wanted so therefore they are not working on the game" and that is wrong. There is a huge difference between constructive criticism and taking a dump on something. There are a small but VERY vocal group of people on this forum that treat the game as if CDPR has abandoned it, and the game is basically dead, and everything CDPR has done has proved that to not be the case.
Now again, The game does need work, there are still many things we would like to see, some of which are already announced to be in the works others that people are optimistic about coming in future announcements, and I strongly support talking about those things, they should be discussed, I also strongly support not just posting bugs on the forums but submitting official reports to the Devs so they can fix it. But I just think it's massively unfair to treat this game as dead wasted potential, and then flame the devs as if they aren't even trying.
Now in the spirit of not fanning flames, I'll add that we should really be getting back to the topic of when 1.7 may come out and what we hope they'll do with it, harping on the past is not going to make the game or the community any better.
