Hello. New to the forums, big fan of the game! But I’ve been thinking…
Considering the quite extensive issues with Behemoth (glitchy rock walls, infamous health bugs, etc.), the ongoing debate concerning tier 4 hunters being OP, not to mention the inital Wraith problems and the double mouse bug and the like, - when taking the price tags into account, when considering that some people have paid up to a hundred dollars for all of this, am I wrong to be disappointed?
I really love this game and I admire the creativity and hard work of the developers but there was a time when releasing unfinished/bug ridden/unbalanced products like this would have been regarded by the consumers as an unacceptable business practice but now it seems like most people are in complete denial mode about it? Or maybe don’t really care?
I feel like the goodwill of the gamers, their willingness to extend benefit of doubt, their developer empathy, is being exploited by people in suits who see no problem in releasing unfinished products as long as people pay up.
Do I have to pay for new hunters and monsters? No, but I don’t feel like 12 hunters and three monsters would be enough to keep me playing for long honestly. And even the inital package came with a fair share of technical hiccups and balance problems.
I don’t feel like a few free maps and game modes makes up for the price tags and I really don’t feel like any sort of price tag could warrant such buggy, unfinished DLC.
You got our money, fellas. I hope you’ll deliver.
