Oh hey, let me clarify. I was saying that in my four years playing, I’ve never had something like this happen TO ME. I didn’t go out and research to see if stuff like that has happened to anyone else, since I completely take you at your word that it was happening to you. If I made it seem like I was implying that it was just you, then that’s my bad.
There have been some issues with this game at times throughout the seasons. People losing their saves, some troublesome bugs, but honestly, I think that’s part of the process of a perpetually updated game. I mean, these guys have been putting out new content each month or even each week for years, which tends to introduce new bugs, even as some of the old bugs (though not all) are squashed. They’re not a massive team, they can only do so much.
Just know that from my own personal experience, these developers ARE working to make the experience better and have been this whole time. The devs that I’ve talked to are good, hard working people who want this game to be the best experience it can be for the players, not as lip service or corporate BS, but as actual people that want to make something players enjoy. They definitely care about this game.
Some of us have had a few different issues with Shadow Lords, such as the drop rate on dossiers or the Hatchery III dossier not dropping, and they’ve communicated with us, updated us on status, etc. The devs have always been accessible in this regard (at least from my experience).
Some of the problems, I’d wager, are relatively easy fixes, but some of them most definitely are not. It’s not simply a matter of pointing something out, or a number of people bringing up an issue, them realizing it’s a problem, and then immediately fixing it. Not in every case, at least.
I’m not trying to make excuses for them, even though I’m sure that’s what it looks like. You’ve undoubtedly had a bad experience with this game and that really sucks for you. There’s no reasoning that away and my experience does nothing to change the experience you’ve had, I know that.
I hope for your sake though, maybe seeing my experience will possibly convince you to give the game another chance, because it’s a really fun experience with a lot of unique ideas. Yes, the game has had it’s share of problems, some of which still exist, such as Shadow Lab being completely broken right now. But at it’s heart, the character designs and gameplay are among the best I’ve experienced in the genre. But if you’re completely done with it, then I certainly wouldn’t blame you one bit.
Just curious, but how many times has Shadow Lords crashed for you? Obviously, once is one time too many in an ideal world, but I was just wondering if it’s been a ton of times. I’ve played through the mode to completion, getting 106%, and it’s never crashed on me, so it’s just crazy to me that it’d happen to some people a lot (as it clearly has) and not at all for others. Maybe that makes it a harder bug for them to find? Who knows. Either way, best of luck to ya man. Sucks this game wasn’t a better experience for ya.
