I'm glad you said something. The updates are about once a month though- are the posts really that annoying?
From my point of view I'm taking a break from the game, so I don't always know there's a patch. Yet I'm interested in hearing about limited time events and significant gameplay changes. And the Epic launcher doesn't tell you what the patch is for either. When someone summarizes that info for me it saves me time, and that's why I summarize them too.
I don't. Personally I'd rather read someone's summary here, with an occasional snarky comment, than to try to drink from the marketing firehose. Just me?
I certainly don't want to annoy anyone. But I would have thought that the start of the Revenge of the Cartels event alone was worth mentioning. What kinds of posts should this thread be reserved for?
It's alright. I can turn off the notifications and look in here once a while since I don’t own the game and I'm not currently so interested.
I looked back at the thread and you’re right that you post about once a month about updates but as I said you’re not alone. As far as I can see first time it was UmarOMC1 that made a post in November (nr 195) but lately the number of such posts has increased. In April you two have made three posts. Here is how it looks:
November - post 195 by Umar OMC1, post 196 by Matt Diamond
December - nr 215 by Matt Diamond
January - nr 227 by Matt Diamond
February - nr 228 by Matt Diamond
March- nr 252 by Umar OMC1
April - nr 255 by Umar OMC1, nr 266 by Umar OMC1, nr 270 by Matt Diamond
Still you have missed a few update reports in April. The game got 5 hotfixes and updates in April alone (2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd, 26th).
I guess since I follow the game on Facebook and see these news updates there it feels like old news and repetitive to see them here too. I still believe that if you play the game you are aware of news about the updates. I mean you seem to get your info elsewhere first and then post them here. It shows that as a gamer you first go to the main source i.e. the different channels for the game (website, FB, Twitter).
Such posts tend to make the thread feel more like a news thread than discussion thread. I mean it would be more interesting if you wrote what you think of Revenge of the Cartels event after you played it instead of reporting about the news, but don’t let me discourage you. Maybe it’s me and my lack of interest for the game at the moment. Better for me to turn off the notifications than trying to stop your enthusiasm.
