Yeah, I come down far more on @BigBadAndy ‘s side of this conversation. Mobbing a developer about all the things you hate about their product and their team is far more deleterious to improving the product than modern fans seem to realize.
SFV got (and frankly, deserved) a lot of criticism, but it also had a lot of players standing up vocally for it in many arenas. Enough players that Capcom saw business value in continuing to invest in and try to improve the overall direction and experience. MvCi had very little of that same backbone of support, despite it being quite a bit better of a game imo.
If a scene is so negative that it only serves to diminish the prospective audience for a title, then it will remove any incentive for a dev to invest any resources in improving the experience. The wall of ■■■■■■■■ about MvCi won’t result in Capcom devoting significant time and resources to overhaul the engine or add in reams of beloved characters or get cracking on a brand new MvC title everyone loves - it will result in the property dying for a few years while Capcom further invests in IP’s that people actually seem to be excited about.
So yeah, congrats at “fixing” Marvel Infinite. Congrats to the people who “fixed” Killer Instinct Season 3 as well. I’m all for constructive criticism and for voting with your wallet, but the people who think ceaseless hate on Twitch chat or Twitter is seriously helping to improve game support and improvement are utterly delusional.
