Not saying that this is the way to go or even a feasible way to go
for Rebellion, but it would be nice to have a Q&A thread with
questions from the community, where devs can just look in and answer if
they feel like it, including "No, never gonna happen" or "Sorry, no news
(yet)". But that also depends on the community and their "attitude" -
allegedly, online forums are sometimes known for direct, personal, even
insulting "criticism" targeted at the developers, who would've thought?
There can be no tantrums when your personal issue No1 won't be addressed
in the next five minutes (or ever).
There has to be respect from both sides:
for the devs and their work, the blood sweat and tears, the family
life, the holidays, the birthdays, their children's school plays and all
the other things they sacrificed to make the game. And even if what
they made might not be "perfect" in the eyes of some, that work, the
effort and commitment deserves respect - or at the very least
And Respect for the people playing the game, that
bought it and care enough about the game to want it to improve, to post
on forums, on twitter or facebook; gamers, that (mostly) are mature
enough to (hopefully) handle answers they might not like (possibly) with
grace, some of which might have actual insights that would allow the
game to get better.
We can handle "No"s - We're not so good
with handling things we don't know because nobody says anything, not
even "we don't know."
So talking to us, even about things that you
don't know, even about things that you know some of us will not like,
is always, always better than not saying anything at all.
