Person1: This game sucks, the crafting is too hard, the UI is slow as ****, and I'm really not having any fun playing at all.
Person2: Umm...the crafting's fun, my actions are taking a fraction of a second to register, and I'm really enjoying this game a lot. I don't really see what your issue is.
Person1 proceeds to curse out Person2 and call them a fanboy, then attempts (and fails) to find a way to mute Person2. Person2 just stops saying anything, knowing better than to argue with the type of person person1 is.
Person2 then proceeds to 4/5 a crafting leve that is 3 ranks higher than their rank. Each synth takes less than 45 seconds.
Sound familiar? It happens every day in this game, and even on the boards. The last part was added on because it was something that happened to me personally today. I really couldn't help but think that this is almost exactly how every single hate vs like conversation has gone for this game. Sure, the game has a ways to go before it is "complete" even in the Devs' eyes. Doesn't mean it is terrible or will fail horridly. If it was really that bad, people wouldn't be so vocal in attempting to denounce it. They would just quit, say nothing about it unless asked, and especially not lash out at any one who is actually enjoying the game.
Any thoughts on the matter from the general community here, aside from the insults that person1 used? I am not attempting to stir up any trouble, I am genuinely interested in why every conversation seems to go exactly the same.
