    /facepalm

    Getting a few more people in the subreddit is exactly what we need. People go there as well as other sites and think that no one likes Shroud because we have let reddit be dominated by those who hate it. There are A LOT more of us who like/love the game than the handful that are on reddit hating it, but they carry the day because the Shroud community doesn't have the Courage to show up and be heard.

    Yes, you will get passive agressive trolled sometimes, but the all out wall of text lying personal attacks are gone. You don't even need a very thick skin (a little thick) to survive there.

    If 10 people who read this go start participating in Reddit it will turn that place around, and you will see a positive growth in player numbers because of it.

    Think about it this way, Steam reviews are 50/50 right now. Fair enough, half the people who play the game like it. Not great, but not a bomb.

    On reddit, MMORPG, etc, it looks like 90% or more hate the game because none of us show up to let the world know we exist!

    Show up!

    Your right Vlad. SoTa does need a home on Reddit and people who enjoy the experience of building this game ought to represent themselves.

    I just think it tries too hard to be "the unmoderated alternative" at the sake of https://www.reddit.com/wiki/reddiquette norms and standards. (the mods are very light even on their own rules)

    I wish more big guns came in and countered the misinformation and lies.

    But Raph's work is amazing. Lets concentrate on that.

    Respect.

    No where near as bad, although yes more trolling is slipping through.

    But the point is that a reddit dominated by haters is literally advertising dollars down the drain. Someone sees the game, checks reddit, immediately leaves because a bunch of haters who haven't played the game in months or years are the only ones who show up, and they are telling everyone "Run away", "Get a refund!"

    And you know who's fault that is? Ours. If we don't show up then we have no one to blame for the failed advertising campaign but ourselves.
