ITT: Frogboy pwns an entitlement baby.
Baby? I am not being one at all. Just saying what needs to be said, especially if after 3 weeks I can barely connect to 1 in 5 games a night and almost double that chance while playing with my online friend. Mainly with the time restraints we have during each night and weekend basically being the same. I feel sorry for the game and GPS/Stardock really. As tough as it is to fix things that require such attention and time.
I make no promises that any update is going to solve a particular user's problem. All I can say is that it should dramaticaly improve things for those people who are having problems.
Now, let me make something bloody clear to you: It's a VIDEO GAME. Do you understand? A video game. We, the publisher of the game, have put developers on improving connectivity and been working over 70 hours a week on this since the game's release. They've had one weekend off in the past month.
So no, I'm not going to work my people literally to death so that some obnoxious user can use built in match-making. If you're so impatent, use something like game ranger or what have you.
Personally, I hope you never purchase anything from us. In fact, feel free to return the game and go away.
All we can do is try our best to work with GPG and Raknet to continue to improve connectivity for those who are having problems. But I can't make promises that it will solve whatever particular issue you have.
BTW, yesterday, our team came in at 9am and did not leave until the following morning (7am). That's a 22 hour day. Sorry that's not good enough for you.
Oh yeah? That is excellant. If you had said that in your journals I would have easily have understood. Sorry, but forgive my tone of my post. I think you misread it in more of a rude and disrespecting manner. Sheez was quite right, many things in that post should not have been said I think, both sides are frustrated and I clearly can not see that on your end, at least from what you say you are doing on your journals. 22 hour work days? Good, I am really glad you are.
I was not meaning to be disrespectful, as that is not the kind of person I am. I was merely meaning basically what Sheez has said and thank him for his input.
Also, Gameranger works maybe half the time. We try to play on it but more than half the games are locked or pirated. If we do get one started without somebody not loading or crashing then great, I still prefer your online service than a third party program.
I know you are the CEO of Stardock and really hope you do not mean this post. As I am just a frustrated customer myself, I know I speak for quite a few others who do not post, talk to in game, and convinced to buy the game but can not play because of the state it is in.
I check on your journals everytime they come up to see what is going on or what is being worked on. I just wish you had said how much you had been working on it, that is really all it is about. Obnoxious user? Thanks Brad. I bought and beta tested your game since it has been available, made several topics saying improvements that would keep this game in good shape (which quickly made it to the bottom of the list), submitted a very detailed Demigod in your topic, as well as many other positive things I thought would help improve this game.
Why would I return the game? I have shown how much I have enjoyed the game and expressed my input through the past months as much as I could. Do you honestly feel this way about anyone who is frustrated with online? Is this what you want to tell them but you tell me instead? I take it your post was meant to be rude? You simply could have said very nicely how much your team has been working, maybe I missed in a journal or whatever, thats all you had to say. Thanks for inconsiderate comments though. I wont hold it against you since I assume you are pulling all nighters now.
