What a huge fuck up. How do you fail to communicate what's in your game properly? Goes to show you how much effort has been put into the title for the PC.

Does Game Workshop have some kind of shovelware quota? Can't they get some bidds from more established developers? Once in a while Games Workshop you gotta license your stuff to someone who can competently do something worthwhile with it.

Things to avoid: A mobile plants vs zombies clone from a dev who already made a plants vs zombies and just switched out some sprites.
Or a developer with no track record.
Wake up.

A fan of 40K.

Accurate: "Closed public beta open to people who bought it already on Early Access"

Misleading: "Public beta"

No it's not, otherwise they would have called it an "open beta". Never once anywhere did anybody say there would be a free open beta. It's public because you, the public, can buy and play the game that is not exclusive to kickstarter backers.
Fine. I would still use more words to be more specific. But that's me being pedantic.

He is a NC guys not a Vanu guy.

Also I predict that the PS4 version will become the priority and the PC version will die.

Last I heard, the PS4 version is a separate team. Its obviously a priority. The XBox version will be another priority. The PC versions development slowed down but think they must have shifted people to H1Z1.

The PC version won't die anytime soon. Why would the new company kill something that makes them money? Its obvious you haven't a clue.
When the creative director leaves and people get shifted over to other projects and players see development of the PC game slow down, then players stop playing which gives the management more incentive to close the whole thing down. Face the fact that the PC version is not the priority, you may have noticed that development has slowed down on it when the PS4 was being developed.

Shia LaBoefu is a plagiarist which makes him beneath contempt.

Back to the topic.
I can't believe people were naive or uninformed enough to pledge to Molyneux's Kickstarter of Godus. The guy has a cavalier regard for the truth. After some revolutionary games he became nothing but a hype master that over promised and under delivered. He serially misleads people. Once or twice okay, but over and over again over his 30 year career makes him a liar. He has shown nothing but contempt for Kickstarter pledges and for his fans. He's also beneath contempt.

It's as if he's conducting an experiment as to how much bullshit people will take.

Failing to deliver what was promised including stretch goals with no real consequences as a result, means that we should expect more of the same from other would be game developers in the future.

Props to Derek. Anyone who releases any game free should get props. Also Derek has mellowed out over the years. So props for that as well.

Good for them. Seems like the right thing to do. You don't really expect fraud buying from EA (queue joke about EA ripoffs here).

You obviously didn't get the story. Cheapskates bought the game from cheap key portals like Kinguin and G2A. The keys that were offered there, were originally acquired via a stolen credit card from Origin. No one whose key was nuked bought the game directly from Origin. Everyone bought keys that were stolen from Origin and resold via the key traders.
As far as I am concerned, this is solely a problem of the key shops. The legality of transactions via their service is their problem since they advertise "100% safety guaranteed" (G2A) and "buyer protection" (Kinguin).
Seems pretty generous of Ubi to reinstate the stolen keys.

Except these keys were sold by ORIGIN.. a tiny detail you forgot And if a store sells keys they are legit keys, fraudulent CC should have been detected by any decent payment provider.

I didn't forget anything. If a credit card has been stolen but the owner has not noticed the theft yet, then how is Origin supposed to be able to tell that a stolen credit card is used for a transaction?
The only thing here I'd agree with is that Origin should probably have limits. I don't know how many keys were bought with any individual card in this case but there should be alarm bells going off somewhere at Origin if someone tries to buy keys in bulk.

Also, we're not talking about key "stores" here. The platforms in question (Kinguin/G2A) operate as middlemen/portals. They help sell keys from person A to person B and offer buyer protection. The keys that are sold via these portals are very often of questionable legitimacy because why would any seller be able to sell an unused key at considerable discounts? Right. In many cases the keys have simply been stolen.
These portals are effectively serving as fences on many transactions and should not be supported by any gamer with an ounce of integrity because you're supporting organized crime.
I need to have better evidence to believe that all keys that are sold at a discount are stolen.

Common tactic is to overstate how much the law is in your favor to deter people. It's a sick legal tactic but it works unless you are informed, and these companies count on you being intimidated and uninformed.

Another example of preaching one thing and doing the opposite. Nothing says "traditional christian family values" like a little securities fraud.
