Maybe. But part of it is coincidence too. Your endoresement system was released at a time when people were already tired of your shit, and burned out, and just play quickplay now because they just don't care anymore.

My pet theory is that this just gives something to do at the end of a match. Usually you're sitting there stewing in the potg that murdered your squad and getting gold with 2 kills, so its easy to lash out. This just distracts people long enough to get into the next match.

Probably something along those lines. For me it makes it easier to ignore the level 2 endorsement guy complaining and there’s less of an urge to respond or escalate in any way. If that feeling gets shared by most of the team then the trolls get bored and don’t want to risk typing too loud and waking up their mom.

'We don't want to do that ever again'.

Yeah, that was bad from an expectations standpoint. Seems like they are learning though and planning these ahead a bit.

It's not stealing if the car is still in your driveway in the morning and you put it there so others can make atom exact copies of it.

It's not stealing either if I eventually pay for it.

Yes it is, and frankly, defending pirating something makes you kind of a bad person. You should reflect upon that. You're literally taking money from the developers. "But I'll pay for it!" he says. Then wait for it. Playing it now, getting a year or more worth of fun from it, then paying for it later (if you even do) doesn't make it right. You're still taking money from them now. And odds are that, when you do buy it, you'll be paying half the price or less.

If it's so important to you, wait. Don't be a dirtbag and pirate. Sorry, pirates are dirtbags. Maybe kids doing it aren't, but you're a grown man with a job. You should know better, and if you don't, well, it probably means you're a dirtbag.

Fuck'em, I'll go for personal copies until they're released elsewhere.

So, you'll go for "personal copies" until they're released elsewhere or at a price you want (XCOM2) or...

Meaning: Whatever, I'll pirate it. Don't pay, just take. Oh, Simon... Killing gaming is fun to you?

Was referencing the exclusive deals fuckery.

And yeah I'm aware that Outer worlds will, ALLEGEDLY, also release day 1 on Windows Store, but as far as I'm concerned, that doesn't really count. I wouldn't even advise someone else to touch that thing with a condom fitted ten foot pole.

Were those for sale? Metro Exodus was actually collecting money.
