2. Vocal public beta testers were able to convince us to change features that would have been better left untouched.
For example, the beta allowed the AI to take over for dropped players in multiplayer. However, beta testers complained that with the save/restore option, players could just restart the game and having an AI player get involved interfered with the experience.
As a result, the feature of allowing computer players to pick up after dropped players was removed in the retail release (it was added back in 1.03).
Huh? i was a very active beta tester from beta 1 to beta 4, and i read almost every post and never saw any talk that suggested the removal of the AI taking over for dropped players...
"beta testers were able to convince us to change features that would have been better left untouched"
I dunno about the other beta testers, but i for some reason feel abit offended by that, since we gave alot of good suggestions and among some which they didnt change and now after release people are complaining about it. So id like to know what else we convinced them to change that was "better left untouched"
