Just Quit, Already!

Posted: 2012/05/15 by Nick in Ranting

Here’s an open letter to a select few Podcasters in the SWTOR Community:

Good grief.  I’ve listened to you guys for a while, and a few of you guys are so freakin’ negative, I feel like I’m reading the Community Forums.  I remember how positive and excited you were back in November.  I remember thinking, “These guys are gonna be so disappointed when this thing comes out.”

So, I get that the game isn’t the Nirvana-like paradise you guys thought it would be.  You guys built it up in your head too much.  Reality never measures up to our fantasies.  There is no entertainment software development organization on the planet that can build a product with the feature set you’re demanding in a timeframe that doesn’t result in running out of money before it’s done.  So, we’re faced with a choice: make do with what we’ve got and hope that BW makes good on its promise to improve the game as it moves forward, or take our business elsewhere.

I’ve decided to stick around for a while.  I’m actually having a fairly good time with the game still.  But I can certainly understand someone deciding to pull the plug because they want to go do something else.  But, if it’s not to your liking, why not quit?  What the heck’s keeping you around here?

Seems to me you’re putting an awful lot of effort into killing something that you obviously think is already dead.  Are you guys the stereophonic equivalent of forum trolls, still posting your declarations of how bad the game is months after “unsubscribing”?  I have to ask, if the game is so bad and so dead, why are you still kicking it? And you guys are paying handsomely for the privilege.  I know podcasting ain’t cheap, in neither time nor money.  What’s your motivation?

Personally, if I’m done with something, I just move on.  I find it to be cathartic, and good for my humors.  Perhaps you should consider it.
