@Chris mentioned that those people and I’m sure I’ve been classified in those category’s more than once have driven the games direction. Portal should always choose what’s best for the game and that includes profit over any of these things. If portal is making bad choices based on bad feedback then that behavior should cease, you are entrusted to make a great game that is around for decades do what ever is required to do that. Player feed back is important so I’m not suggesting you disregard that but take it and weight it against the equation what’s best for the game. Players can offer a different prospective that the devs might be missing. Take the taxable vendor with the pre tax set they originally had. Worst design choice ever but we as a player/dev team we fixed it because it ultimately was the right choice for the game. The assets convo early on was stemmed by the fact at the time most all assets were store bought assets. This is far far from the case now and it actually makes a lot of sense to get back into store bought assets. It’s the easiest and cheapest way to add new content. Game first by making a great game u’ll have a happy player base. You can’t make 100% people happy no matter what you do so don’t let that control you or lose any sleep over it.
