@SpartanViperz a game is a game. The reason people play games over other games is because of what they offer. Obviously MMO RPGs are a much different game style, but it is the same insensitive as to why they are popular. If they removed all leveling and such from WoW, then what would be the point to fighting Bosses? That is just one example.
Every, check my post out. I covered this topic. https://forums.focus-home.com/topic/39858/what-are-we-playing-towards
I played this game 5 times longer then you and I should say the game is amazing, bugs are really rare or not critical, gameplay issues not so critical too, and I excited about all new stuff devs will give us soon: night maps, Sinjar, Ambush mod, Modding tool etc.
I see you dissapointed, as I was at 40 hours. Then I set graphics settings on minimal to fix FPS, played with bots few hours to understand shooting mechanics, and then I really changed my mind about game from 'terrible' to 'awesome'.
Wish you will understang it too bro.
@Sulfur Explain yourself. Why are the bugs and gameplay not critical?
Content the reason to play the game in the first place!!!! We, as players, deserve MORE!!
NWI is stuck between making more content (which means MORE bugs) or fixing all the current bugs and then focusing on content.
Picture this: an old car with rust, air bubbles under the paint, an interior with ants and rats and shit living in it, engine problems, flat tires, etc.
Now picture someone disregarding all of that. He paints over the rust spots and air bubbles, puts a sweet body kit on it, and tints the windows so no one will the interior. He fixes none of the issues and hopes people will be happy.
This is what the game is starting to feel like.
Look at WoW. That game is loaded with content that brings people back day after day. They crave the grinding, the leveling up, the sweet loot from boss fights, the pvp, and just all round satisfaction from advancing further into the game. What they aren't coming back for are the updates. And they shouldn't be. Updates shouldn't be what "brings people back." They should be on the side, fixing bugs, optimizing, configuring quality of life. And then every once in awhile, they can role out 1 large content update to keep the players busy for another 5 months.
This isn't sandstorm ^^^.
I have already made a post on this topic here describing the state of the content. We are literally relying on new maps, guns, cosmetics, etc. A NEW MAP TAKES A LONG TIME TO GET RIGHT! And the fact that we have nothing to grind or work on while waiting is a HUGE mistake by NWI. We get impatient and start pressuring the devs. It is unhealthy for everyone.
