I like how he terms their blatant lies of features as a failure to effectively communicate.

It's kinda obvious this was only done because the thought is "oh shit, we've dug ourselves into a deep hole and risk losing profits". Also that thought apparently continued onto "well, better keep digging".

what? he made THAT and they still let him near computers? that game was a crime against gamers!
Don't be ridiculous. Big Rigs was a tour de force of everything that is right with gaming and was the serious competition Need For Speed needed at that time. People were just too indoctrinated against great game design. Idiots, I swear. Don't know what you got til it's gone.

> Vocal minority
> Thousands of players still playing
> Gets pulled from Steam

A Person Don't say that. For as horrible as WarZ was Big Rigs was a DEMO OF A CONCEPT released full price. This dude is just a scam artist and should never be allowed to release his game through steam or anywhere else (not that there's anywhere else other than steam mind you).

You know what's funny? Sergey Titov is the same guy who made Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing.
Maybe he should stick to driving games, and base his physics engine off the real world and not some Russian bullshit, 'cause TWZ is one huge joke. On both the front and developing ends.

I'm really curious as to who's in this "vocal minority" he's talking about. The only comments I've ever since about this game have been negative.

Wakaman Technically it was all their publisher doing most of the skeezy stuff. Hammerpoint, up to now, has been 100% complicit though.
Yeah I noticed how he kept implying that throughout the letter.

But what made me both lol and facepalm was when he not so subtlely said they rushed the game to get as much profit from it before DayZ stand alone made it to the market.

Also to add, I see this was supposed to be adressing the issues/apologizing but he pretty much keeps saying the same thing he has been saying. That despite all the backlash from the vocal minority(lmao) it is a successful game.

And a comment I find particularly amusing from reddit is how they point out that despite it's problems they made sure the microtransactions part was working.
Like really.

GOD THIS GUY IS A *bleep*ING TOOL! He admits it is his fault in the most backhanded, talking under his breath sort of way. "Vocal Minority" WHAT?!? Everyone was bitching about the problems yet he acts like it was a select few. Constantly pushes about how it is a success... Someone just smack the shit out of him please. He is like that little kid in the class who won't admit he is wrong when everyone else tells him two plus two is four he swears it is five and says anyone who says elsewise is just not right. Nope, it's five. Five. Five. Five. Ok I guess it could possibly be four, but it is most likely five.

But he doesn't admit that they were just trying to cash in on the Day Z success?

I mean if anything was to be admitted, and if any apologies should have been made, it should have started there.

Ofcourse they're not gonna admit to that though, are they.

Pacman EDIT: Well well, seems they did indeed admit to it, my mistake. Also having a ball reading the comments on reddit.
