…we could give our teammates something to look forward.
…we could discuss how the new features could be implemented in the game
… we would not need so many forum discussions leading to nothing
… Gala would not have to think of impolite, stalling answers
… People would understand that it might take time to do it right
Other companies do it in a proper way without spoiling anything. But No, not Flare. They do not care about community, they simply show they do not understand it.
In the past there were at least some screencasts about upcoming new stuff. Only a few people watched but at least some info was given and players spread it. These „Fairytale Videos“ were clearly a step back. Nobody is even discussing what they meant.
I hope there will be a next time to do it better. Maybe it was Flares last shot at improvement. Confidence among players this update will be good is very low at the moment. Maybe unjustified, but guess why…
