When both of ya'll walk into a shoe store I'd be amazed if they all didn't fit.
But go ahead, keep defending this behavioir because they "should have known" and "it's the internet". ffs
Do you support dozing and swatting with the same fervor. What about review bombing.
And now you're twisting yourself into false equivalences, much like the Ooblets developer did when they tried to claim that because climate change exists, people shouldn't be upset by this. I don't know why you seem so intent on coming into every thread about frustrated consumers and acting as if you're all high and mighty, the only enlightened one and that there can only even be one party in the wrong in any given situation. You clearly like things like the Epic Games Store and presumably, are happily using it. Good for you. So why do you always need to act not unlike this developer in every thread where people state their own issues with it? Just go enjoy what you enjoy and accept that not everyone agrees with you.
These devs are taking pages from the Zoe Quinn PR Playbook, doing something purposefully incendiary, then playing themselves as the victim and getting more PR for their product among the crowd who blindly support such people (of which there are more than you think.) I think it's despicable and between this and now relying on an Epic exclusivity paycheque, shows that they don't have a lot of faith in their own product but hey, their strategy and they can do what they want. I and many others, will not touch a product with the name Glumberland on it ever again and I think they're being assholes in terms of their behaviour. That doesn't in any way justify the garbage like death threats they're getting but that also doesn't mean they can't be called what they are: Hostile towards their audience and within certain limits, reaping what they sow.This comment was edited on Aug 8, 2019, 22:19.
