View Full Version : If I was Trion, I wouldn't bother with the forums at all.

Would you want to come on here to read non-constructive bs criticism? Valid complaints/issues aside, 80% of the posts on here are people complaining and then logging on the game to play more. Not only complaining, but never offering any useful feedback. It's not even trolling, it's worse. Next time you think you need to post your 'anger' step away from the the keyboard, go upstairs and tell your parents. They might actually comfort you. Trion is not only doing something that hasn't been done before, they are doing it on three different platforms. The game came out last month. Stop.

(Did I just reverse troll? Damn it. . .)

there have been many, many constructive posts, but yes, they are often buried under complaints

They do it on purpose, to keep people with complaints from actually spending time in the game. ;0] Text bandwidth is much cheaper than video game server bandwidth.

Meta-complaining, how new and original...

That having been said, I've seen very little evidence to suggest that Trion does bother with these forums.

At all.

Says it all, really, and none of it good.

These forums aren't the MOST useful feedback venue for Trion to learn what people like or don't like about the game but they do server a purpose. And don't worry about the Devs having to wade through all of the crap looking for the nuggets. That's what the Community team does.

Yeah i can see sledge early every morning. Ok need two advil to start 4 hours later need another 4 Just to finish the day off without having a headache.
When he get's home 1/5 of a bottle of whiskey some more pain killers and some downtime.
An Ambien before bedtime then do it all over again 5 days a week trying to sift through complaints, troll posts, ect. ect.. Just to consolidate info that the dev's want or what they should hear. Because the community is in an uproar about something this week.

Just be glad he also doesn't do CS support i can see him snapping and going on a rampage. Heck does anyone remember whats his name the CM from the WoW shaman forums yeah i don't want to see that happening.

That's why I stick mostly to the lore folder, better to discuss fun things than the hundreds of complaints.

Im not even sure all of those complainers play at all. Some of them have an average each day of over 30 posts on this forum, since gamelaunch. How can they even have time to play? And i agree With you on Your post.

Their support ticket system is bad, their bug report feature is horrible (no option to upload a dxdiag file) and on the forums the devs/community managers pick and choose which threads to reply to. Personally I think they are trying to do good things with this game, but the tools they are using need to be cleaned and stream lined better.

He did just buy a new car...I think we are all doomed if we stand anywhere close to what looks like an ark fall or skitterlings..

I think you have a better chance of reporting a bug on Twitter or Facebook than the Forums or Helpdesk and thats sad.

Arranging deck chairs on the Titanic they are.Ray Charles could see that.

My money is on Wonder,his recent victory over Marvin Gaye was convincing.
I see no reason the trend won't continue.

Hi everyone,

We have closed this thread and would like to take a moment to explain why. We do welcome all feedback, even when it is negative or critical, but we do ask that it is respectful and constructive, please.

While we understand that it is frustrating to read negative posts and threads, creating threads to "reply" to or otherwise discuss these threads is not constructive and typically results in more disruption.

If anyone has questions or concerns about this thread closure, please feel free to contact us at community@defiance.com.
Thank you!
