I abstained from commentating earlier but I feel that yes Tommy’s reaction to the reviews makes some people here puke (not going to name any names cause I’m above that). However, at least they have finally admitted that there is something very very wrong with how they run their company.
Obviously, an “official” response from a CEO running the company would be defensive. Very few people I know in real life would just flat out admit they are in the wrong there will always be some backpedaling.
It’s human nature (or at least human nature from my perspective) that people will defend themselves rather than admit and than be devoured by the tide of hate and scorn that every human relishes to dish out.
There are probably thousands of people would love to tear at them and who will never be satisfied.
I feel also we need to temper both sides of observation rather than branding certain people “haters” and others as “white knights” Both sides have their opinions and their points. But I would hope that people here on the forum won’t see this as a golden moment for personal self-validation.
Call me a sympathizer but I’ve always loved Vainglory since it came out and even now I could say I’m a diehard optimist. Hopefully, they change but if they refuse to drink from the river when being led to it well… we are we to force them?
At the end of the day, it’s their company and their pet project that they are trying to sustain. It is very little we can really do as a community other than offer help and maybe advice. The rest is up to them.
