Once upon a time there was a nice indie company called HiRez. It was nice and respectful towards their player base. They had great ideas and always listened to the player community, moreover they even put it as their main motto.

Then Smite comes.The people at the high company levels starts to see the money flow. The popularity of this game rises. They see a big rise in player base.

What a nice milk cow this is. They decide to stop supporting all other games and focus only on Smite. Screw the players there. Now this nice indie company becames dishonest full of biggots and don't care any more for player feedback. Why should they? They have a bigger Smite player base and they dont care for some small minority on forums that give feedback, theorycrafting and suggestions.
"Too much negative feedback, we cant handle this above all we are infallible. What we should do?"

Lets close the forums and throw all community on reddit.
Well let me tell you something: If you try to post on smite reddit a single negative feedback, not trolling or flaming, a simple criticism that doesn't have one adhominem or baiting - it will be DELETED. Asap, and they dont even care. No explanation, nobody knows even who deleted the post. Oh and if you are lucky enough that your post is not deleted the mob on reddit makes sure that your post is put at the bottom and well hidden. You know, nobody likes bad news so kill the messenger. Hang him!! It is called "tyranny of the majority", yep a pure democracy par excellence.


Stay away from this game and this company. They are sweet talkers but their actions are despicable and unprofessional.

So a company is to blame for putting out a product that does not reach profitablity and closing said product to mitigate loss???

This isn't true. I've seen the Tribes and SMITE reddit subforums and they are filled with people vollying insults and criticism towards Hi-Rez. The community just voted to ban Hi-Rez employees from the subforum (even though the moderators decided not to, ultimately).

http://www.reddit.com/r/Tribes/comments/1joy6s/the_tribes_ascend_servers_have_been_fucked_up_for/

And of course the existence of someone named HiRezSackofshit http://www.reddit.com/user/HiRezSackofshit

The Reddit subforums that Hi-Rez dumped their players on to were previously unofficial and the mods are just as unhappy about it as many of the players.
