Quoting Thrawn2787, reply 31Why announce you won't buy it and you feel there is a lack of content? Leave the forums then if you aren't interested
Because people have the right to voice dissent as well as approval. Some of those people are people who have been with the game and involved in the community for a very long time. That is a telling thing.
There are other games launching later this year, or early next year, that are in the same genre as Rebellion that seem to feature a great deal more content than Rebellion whilst remaining in it's price range ($40ish). Given how little concrete information has been released about Rebellion, and the fact that they are riding on good faith, the pre-order price bonus being removed so soon is a bit eyebrow raising.
By providing dissent vocally, customers are not saying they will not purchase Rebellion, but simply informing SD/IC that they need/want more information before they are willing to buy the game whilst letting them know also that they want more content and are potentially willing to pay accordingly.
It's basic feedback, Thrawn. Dialogues are helpful.
Seemed a whole lot more of ranting and hating than helpful feedback. A lack of sales in general would prove that this "price hike" didn't work. People have the right to say what they wish but I think if you're only going to be purely negative get your ass back to /v/, that stuff doesn't belong on the developer's forum, especially when they do actually read it. It's insulting and childish and won't actually help transform the game into a better experience.
The preorder bonus has been around for 6 months now. Clearly the game is taking longer than expected, Ironclad games was 9 people last I checked and perhaps not all of them are working on Rebellion. Why is it that with these larger companies people are fine with saying "have faith" when they know little about the game? Take Skyrim for instance. You have a ton of things that you need to take their word for, you have some screenshots, and you have ONE highly scripted video of gameplay (it's been played through multiple times yes). I think that's very little information, especially when the game has 50 days till release. Yet people are preordering that in droves. Don't tell me if Valve released a teaser for Half-Life 3 that was literally nothing but a video with the text "Half-Life 3" and a preorder went up with it that you wouldn't preorder it on the spot. Ironclad hasn't lied to us before, big companies do all the time (intentionally or not). Ironclad has stated all the features that are going to be in the game, take it or leave it. But sitting and complaining won't do much. And it isn't really "I haven't seen enough" so much as "it doesn't have what I want." Hello Kitty Island adventure doesn't have what I want but you don't see me going to the developer's forum and complaining (if they have one).
I've been with Ironclad since before the betas for the original game and I'll stick with them, they stick with us and they haven't let me down yet. Last year at my college I worked at our IT helpdesk and a student was having issues connecting to ICO, so Ironclad emailed our helpdesk in an attempt to help them connect (and in the end the issue was fixed).
