I’m not going to write a book here; I just want it known.
I’m giving up on this game for a few reasons that no one seems to care about.
Broken / unbalance characters
They basically turn Hanzo into McCree, making McCree useless. Characters like Doomfist and Sombra these devs have no f***ing idea how to properly design for. Finally some like my boy Bastion have gone unacknowledged for a long time. Oh yes and also completely changing characters we love because… well because they can no other reason.
Ghosted Community Response
The very few community replies are just ghosts of an ad. They don’t ever talk to their player base. I’m not ask for them to reply to every post. Just put effort into talking with us. All they have ever given us is shallow attempts of advertisement for a map or hero.
Going E-Sport with Mario Kart
This is a straight up casual game, nothing about it is competitive. Yet they continue to treat it as such. Causing toxicity in their very own community. As well wasting dev / money / and time on a venture that shouldn’t be the focus.
Pulling out the rug to “free” players
One of the biggest things this game prided itself on before release. Was all content free. Then they stabbed that in the back and opened the gateway with the paid DLC that was Pink Mercy. Not to get into it too much but yes that is a purchase, I don’t care where the money went. If you put money forth and get something in return it’s a purchase. If you don’t, it’s a donation.
But sure let’s just say “donation” anyway, it was for a good cause. But before that was the E-sports skins. Which I had no issue simple 30 minute work to recolor your favorite. BUT THEN, they pissed me off! They say you can only get these new asset customizations for large $$$ amounts. $30 or so for this lucio emote… the new legendary coming which will cost probably just as much, each.
I guarantee sometime soon all customs will be paid.
Over all I just hate them spitting in the face of their fans. If it wasn’t for HotS I would uninstall Battle_net
