We would love nothing more then to cheer you guys on you know. The endless negativity isn't rooted in wanting you all to fail, its frustration from a base who has love for the game.
When you single out the slivers of praise like this, it causes another eyeroll reaction and is a bad marketing move. (Deaf to condemnation yet quick to reap praise I believe is the phrase)
I can understand being frustrated with the onslaught of negativity, I myself am very harsh on you guys, but we have given you guys all the feedback we can to make that a reality.
Your team has to do the work though, treat the base with respect, listen to the consumer vs trying to force them into what they don't want, and deliver on what has been promised.
Do that and I will be the first in line to say "I didn't believe you guys had it in you."
As I'm sure will many others, taking praise until then merely continues to paint you guys in the light of ignorance vs. honest self awareness & hardworking.
I understand the intent of your post, but I also ask you to understand that the majority of the posts that I and other members of the team respond to are replies to posts that are anything but praise. You can check the dev tracker to see a history our responses. My thanking a player for their kind message doesn't happen very often as I do not want to come across as tone deaf, however I do want players to know that I see those messages as well as the criticisms and feedback in the forums.
