OP  2/15/13 2:49:18 PM#1
The latets changes the devs are proposing are going to sink this game, they said they are listening to the players in Beta but is not true. They are making decisiones that are totally irrational and anyone who speaks againts those changes gets the topic deleted or locked and they receive a strong warning for speaking against the changes, so IMHO dont be a fool and wait until the game comes out if you want to see what brings, as it is right now, do not invest a penny on it. I paid $100 and I am regreting it.

Sorry but why spend 100 $ on a game that is not finished and is going to be free to play and not just wait for the finished product ?

Bad move on your part. See, I got a free beta key 1st and then played it for 3 months before I bought a founders. Guess you should have done the same, huh.

 

Oh, both the game and its development process have flaws but red 5 are being totally transparent and the OP is making stuff up about threads being delete.

There is NO miracle patch.

95% of what you see in beta won't change by launch.

Hope is not a stategy.

I just don't get why this is so hard to figure out.

If you aren't willing to throw the money away and let developers make their own game then you probably shouldn't be funding the project in this way.  These aren't really consumer purchases or investments.  They are more like project donations where they give you bling for donating.  Public television and radio along with tons of charities have been doing this for ages.

OP, it sounds like being a direct consumer is a better level of support for you rather than an early adoptor.

I think a mind wipe so people could play an mmo like it was their first time again, would be easier to build than a new mmo people here would actually like. - DamonVile

my thoughts exactly. are they using DR? are they doing a gear treadmill? cutting off content via DLC's or dungeons/raids too difficult for most to complete? Are they breaking the economy? what?

red 5 is never sneaky or underhanded in how they do things. When they change something many ppl don't like they talk about it on the beta forums and explain why they did something. If ppl are still not happy they try and make it better.

There will always be those ppl who don't understand they are just one noice among many and even though they think they know everything.....yeah.

People are like cats. When they die, you get a new one.

OP probably got his/her thread deleted because it was rage, then comes here to rage.

Never preorder, never buy before launch, thats what you should do for any MMO. If anyone out there is going to be surprised that the game does not live up to their expectations you must have had your head pushed well in the sand for the entire history of MMO gaming.

All those points you made about the changes you listed of what they are doing really shows that its not worth spending money. Totally, not being sarcastic.

 

PS: I'm being sarcastic, you might made claims the end of the world is here and we will be all gone in 24 hours, its just as valid as your 'claims' are and about as believable as well.

 

Support a game if you like what its going for, if your not sure don't.  So long as you know the risk and your comfortable with the developer and what they are going for, there is no reason to shy away from it. If your not sure or anything, just simply back away and wait. No reason to spend unless you are sure.

Generally speaking, I don't think $100 is enough to dictate how the game is going to be designed.

If they deleted your thread, it's probably because they didn't find it very useful.

Played the open beta weekend last week, looked kinda funny.

Looks kinda like Global Agenda but more fun.

Bought a founders pack for 20$ so far not regretting it one bit.

Plays fun lotsa stuff to shoot.

And about changing stuff hell they been doing that for a year now and they keep doing it.

Hell thats why founders play and give comments about it.

Anyways you spending 100$ on it "lord knows why" your problem.

I would spend some $ more and who knows they will implement your "great" ideas to :)

 

I am not even sure this game ever gets released :P

But i am having a blast with it at the moment.

cheese cheese wheres da bloody cheese

i has no shame i got da founders with motor cycle long time ago

games sint half bad, lacks content stil but i ahvent played in a bit,

also in my experence the most irratinal changes made to games are actully normally because the devs where trying to listen to the player base to much.

F2P may be the way of the future, but ya know they dont make them like they used to
Proper Grammer & spelling are extra, corrections will be LOL at.

Got 4 more beta invites, they're full ones so who wants to try for free need only pm me, first come first served ^^ (all you need is to ask someone for an invite btw, most testers have to spare but when people moan about founders packs they purchased they really check first, kids with daddy's credit card really).

I was very vocal in terms of the direction they were going. Granted, it could've been laid out with more tact, I'll admit, however, I can agree that the devs "pretend" to listen. They've got absolutely zero clue what they're doing in terms of who they're marketing this game to.

Think about it... they're all over the place. On one side, they're claiming Firefall will be an eSport FPS game, yet the skill ceiling is laughably low. Many, many, MANY potential changes have been voiced on the forum with countless replies of feedback agreeing to them. These are generally met with their fat community manager regurgitating the same ol, "we're looking into possibilities, guyz!" over and over. Then you've got them marketing to cosplay/anime/manga fans, which is more of a casual gamer grab. So you've got casual players saying one thing, the competitive players saying another, and Red5 with a giant foot in their asses doing neither.

I made a thread that had thousands of fews, hundreds of replies and a huge handful of the beta community agreeing with me. It took me months of bitching for Red5 to even acknowledge the thread.

Oh, and I'm now banned from the forums.

Stay far away from this monstrosity of a failure.

Yeah I've been in this beta for awhile and was never impressed, especially not for $100, even F2P this won't have a spot on my systems.

Firefall seriously has no game to it, its really a very shiny smart phone app where you go to random things in the world over and over. The story line is non-exstant, PvP combat is grossly imbalanced, enemy AI is pathetic, quests are still buggy/broken to this date. 

I'm really not sure what niche Firefall fills except as a weekend getaway and a quick uninstall. FYI - Yeah I've seen most of the game and put in my hours, along with coming back to see if anything changed/improved.

Even Korean MMOs allow more then 2 heads, 4 haircuts and have better AI. That btw is not a compliment.

they can always listen but that wont say they wil do what you said to do. its stil there game that they are making.

donation is just for extra goody for yourself and 100$ is stil somethign for them image 10 ppl doing that 1000$ or maybe more

money is money ^^

but that the game is crap itself nah its in BETA i just keep saying this. my understanding of a beta and a beta players is to find bug test contant see what goes wrong report it and give your opinion am i right ? or is there more to it to do in a beta ? the game is not even finished ofc you wont be doing much then.

but be honest this game just kee on bringing new stuff into the game and that's itself is already a plus, never saw a beta doing it this way. its just testing everything keep changing it and try to find its way.

patience.

i myself bought 100% just for the bike ^^ nothing else, oh yeah and a lovely poster on my wall.
