and @naselus .. Im happy you find out where the line is to be overstepped... What you think then about Stardock´s line ? That is not overstepped to bring that what they call GC3 out and that they want to be payed for it ? This Line is ok and not overstepped right ? common guys... chill out.. and come back from the Drugs Cloud... That is more then overstepped...sure i will agree with you... when we 3 are all in a BETa programm for GC3 and that time was the only thing we invested until now in this software... but to be a founder of that and payed it for that is the Line that is overstepped for me...
.. as a customer who pays for it i feel very ripped off... not hyperbolic naselus... but as a Beta Tester... you have right.. the only problem is that im not a BETA Tester...i don´t have the time for that.. and when i pay for something it should not be a WISH that i expect that should work and i can enjoy it for what i pay...it a very simple rule... that works for everything on a free market...
I'm not entirely sure that all the words you use mean what you think they do. Or that your approach to punctuation is an effective one for English, as it makes your posts read like a bad novelist's impersonation of someone on morphine. I suggest you stop using '...' all the time, because unless you know what you're doing it gives the reader the impression that you keep falling asleep halfway through a sentence.
But the 'this is a beta' stuff is hyperbolic nonsense. The game is in fairly reasonable shape. It's not perfect world that Larsenex sometimes paints it as when he gets carried away, and there's serious issues that need to be addressed, but it's also not the doom-and-gloom picture you're attempting to paint, either. Comparisons with GC2 + expansions are ridiculous; a game which had 5 years of time sunk into writing it (plus two sizable infusions of extra funding via the expansion packs) is obviously going to have more features than one that has not had those things. A game is not 'incomplete' because it does not contain all the features of a different game, even if they happen to belong to the same IP.
This does cut the other way, of course, and I'd hope that SD don't intend to meddle with core features too much again. Changing the wheel was always going to cause an outcry, and probably should have happened in the actual beta stages rather than a patch several months after release, if it had to happen at all. Balance changes are part and parcel of the patch process of any game, but a major reduction in the player's ability to control his empire is not something that can be quietly added in without anyone noticing.
I already apologize for my English naselus im not a native speaker. I hope you understand what I mean. As i already said my points of disapointment are already posted here:http://forums.galciv3.com/472460/page/1/#3598172
I don´t think it is exagerated from a simply fact that they are not reinventing the game and in comparison to the previous one it is a BETA. Think pls a little bit logically. When you start this new Project they has the base already they doesn´t need to reinveted it from scratch . And GC2 was a very succesfull project in my opinion if not the best one from this company... and when you read my arguments in the post I have linked you , you will understand that a big part that i critic are smalll changes that could be done in a day from a expert dev. First not to think on that is very unexplicable to me , 2 I don´t think they forgot them but I think they are to lazy to implement this options also like I think it is a ridiculous excuse to not implement them now in 6 months after release.that is not a big effort and for SURE you don´t need 5 Years again to implement already existing options where you has think about them. Its no excuse naselus
The points are they dont need to think about new windows for categorizing or a diplomacy status that is already given.. or some console commands that was already included and are now also partially already included. They also don´t need to reinvented existing factions.
But to know how you have solved this problems,issues in the past and simply not to implement them it´s no excuse, not 5 years , not insufficient funding or whatever. To bring it out so that is hyperbolic and that ends not here . after 6 months of release they was also not capable to implement them.
Sure you have right the game still have the potential. But you don´t see or you dont´want to see the people in the background. When they think so.. and that is what I understand when i Play it and payed for it. ... Ah men, the idiots there on the market buy it also without this option or this are a new generation and the old one doesn´t play it anymorewe we can sell it also and don´t need such a complexe game anymore. Then is it hopeless because it will never come..don´t be so naive.
