If DE one day decide to go full EA, will you stay or go?

Recommended Posts

EA? Can't say I like EA or their practices. I probably wouldn't stick with the game if it went that far down being anti-consumer. Activsion Blizzard is doing their own self immolation of their retained goodwill so far, so I think emulating that would also be a very bad idea.

Perhaps this what will happen if people keep asking for more content, dedicated servers, etc. Can't keep things without money

Well, go to region chat and proclaim "liberate (a certain country)" and it gets instantly censored. Proclaim the pride of a certain orientation known for their love of musical theater and nothing happens. That there is already highly suspect.

Cannot believe. Even warframe censor the message "LIBERATE HONG KONG"

True to my word I retire from the game immediately, bye bye Empyrean

 

 

Going to miss some of you guys, take care and be happy

I am apparently not banned or censored by typing 'Liberate Hong Kong' in Region chat, so... I don't know? Probably isn't about the message.

Guess it's the "broken caps lock" case where you get censored or kicked for typing with full capital

Typing anything in chat with full capslock will get you muted by chatbot with a message from chatbot along the lines of "it's time to lay off with the capslock."

As for OPs original post, it'd never happen, because it'd literally kill the franchise. However, if for some insane reason it did happen, pretty sure 90% or more of the community would nope the #*!% out in an instant.

Most games already have.

On PS4, discounts dont apply to plat. So I'm rerouted to the Playstation Store where I can buy a measly 370 plat for 20 bucks. Dont even get me started on paying close to 100 dollars for plat

Yes, I think about making a thread and announcing this "gift event".

Well, that's respectable, actually. Unlike the typical "I'm quitting, everyone look at me pls" -posts.

Assuming this is legit, did you write it in all caps? Cuz the game has a habit of kicking messages that are too long in all caps.

Yes all in caps but the game censored me with

"That is not an appropriate topic for our space-ninja game" (took screenshot)

I don't think that appropriate topic has anything to do with caps lock.

Well, they are also known for banning several words or phrases relating to topics like these. I don't know the exact policy but I wouldn't be surprised if they avoided all political talk, regardless of whether or not they agree with it or not.

 

Edit: Also, Leyou, which has a pretty sizable chunk of DE, is based in Hong Kong. Which means that Warframe could potentially put people right in the firing line.

I know, searched warframe in wikipedia and the company that owns it a few days ago and I thought it was very safe to say it in game. All the more reason to point this out, you can't say a thing because the bully in turn is threatening you and you oblige?

Leyou can bend the knee, I don't have nor need to.

 

Can anyone else please test in game? Chat bot blocked me instantly but someone else managed to type? it only blocks in caps lock?

I literally tested that on various regions, didn't get blocked. So I suppose it's the caps then.

Well, paid DLC wouldn't make me quit as long as it doesn't contain any stat changing rewards. Paid story content might give DE actual incentives to do more quests. I did quit WF before, but because I heavily disagreed with their design decisions, not because of their monetization. Luckily, it only took a few months for them to revert that decision, which is why I'm still here.

When the 'bully' has a gun and an itchy trigger finger? For Leyou, the phrase 'Firing line' may not be so metaphorical.

Go.  Not that it will ever happen because DE is heavily likely to know that going with season passes and such would kill their game and thus their company.

Okay, tried it again, no longer censored. I'm pretty sure I didn't engage capslog a.k.a. cruise control for cool. They might have changed it.

Same, tried combinations such as:

LIBERATE Hong Kong [no censorship]

LIBERATE MOON [no censorship]

liberate Hong Kong [no censorship]

 

And it seems like it's ok but the screenshot I took before says other wise as it clearly prompted me to avoid the thing altogether without even mentioning the caps lock. Don't know what to say except that it is better to be wrong in these circumstances.

If DE walk down this path one day, will you stay, or go?

you know, that's actually a tough one, and I can't say yes or no.

on the one hand, I'd find them going full EA abhorrent and want to leave. I'd be furious that a company I not only gave a LOT of money to over the years, but also believed in (and I'm one sceptical and cynical son of a bish, so that means something to me) would treat their own fans this way. it's not an exaggeration for me to say that I believe DE are one of the last "good ones": one of the last Devs that actually seem to give a damn about their games. my faith in the industry to do right by us gamers has been broken and mended so many times it's more like Superglue than belief, but this I feel would make me despise the entire industry, and become even more cynical than I already am (not sure if that's possible, but I'd rather not find out). put it this way, I'd produce enough salt to season an entire country's dinners for a month.

on the other, leaving for me would be hard because of all the time I've invested into Warframe. right now I don't know if I want to continue playing this other game, because all I do is log in and then log out, but I've also spent a LOT of time in it, though nowhere near as much as I have in Warframe. still, I don't know if I want to truly abandon it. for a game like Warframe, which I have played for a little over 4 YEARS, it would be hard to bear. I'd have to think about it for a long time. I suppose if the worst happened then maybe it would be for the best, but I wouldn't be happy about it, that's for sure.

but thankfully, things aren't going south, and while DE aren't perfect and there are problems with Warframe, they haven't thrown in ridiculous MTX and the like just yet.

No actually Blizzard did what they did in order to keep politics out of their games and i agree with them. Every company should follow their example i dont want politics in games i am here to have fun.

Along with what others said before, another team showed that was a lie, given they did the same thing but wasn't punished for it. In China, things are handled differently than in West when it comes to games in every way possible. Blizzard just wasn't expecting such a response from the West.

Western companies bending over for China isn't even new, so many movies, music and games are completely altered just for the chance of getting money from China, due to China being the only other country at the moment with a similar global market share to the US, with the possibility of even surpassing the US.
