And it's fine if they don't know exactly...I would welcome the honesty and transparency. I just don't see how the current way they're engaging the community is winning them any good will.
But I am looking forward to seeing the game continue to improve!
You'd welcome the honesty and transparency and so would I. There are probably a ton of others who would. Then there would be another part of the community, a very vocal part, who would create a shitstorm out of it. You think those people think CDPR is made up of incompetents now? Guess how bad it would get if they came out and admitted to not knowing fully what will make it into the patch.
In big part because, as Gregski's image points out, development seems simple to outsiders. Which can be said of almost any profession out there unfortunately.
I sure got my share of "this seems very simple, should be easy enough to do" thrown at me to which my answer usually is silence... in complete disbelief but you get the idea. All the while thinking to myself "yes, I got 2 bachelor's and a master's for this position all three of which your tiny brain probably couldn't even wrap itself around BUT IT'S SIMPLE THANKS FOR REMINDING ME" but I can't say that. The simple fact is that explaining how complicated things can be usually doesn't help much. In my experience anyway.
Unlike CDPR though, I am not playing on the world stage, my words and actions aren't inspected and critiqued across the world and nowhere near dissected and analyzed to the extremes that some people have displayed over CDPR's statements and actions. If I was, I'd keep silent too
