Can we stop with the demanding?

I've seen and been a part of a decent amount of forums, mostly but not limited to, of online games, but never have I witnessed such abusive and outright ridiculous demanding from its users. What the actual [BAD WORD]?

Not sure what the company policy is on purchased content, cosmetic or otherwise (the game for example), but that's the only thing you might have the right to demand on. For example, if you bought a cosmetic and you don't have it or console players technically not being able to play the game right now.

Meanwhile, left and right, BHVR this, BHVR that, this not good, that not good, i want like this, no, i want like that, weh weh weh.

You paid a fair price for the game which is worth what you paid and if you consider how cheap it is on some platforms, there is absolutely no discussion there. After, whatever you purchased in the game was completely optional, even killers/survivors. You were never promised anything more and if you were, BHVR does not have to comply to anything. Everything you are getting, broken or not, you are getting for free, maybe at the cost of others, but never did you have to spend extra to be allowed to participate in new content. Whatever funding they received other than game purchases were donations with benefits.

I get it, you are frustrated and this is in fact a platform to express your opinion, even if most of the time they are not actually discussions, but nothing better is going to happen if we just fill this forum with stuff like this. 1/10 of the new posts after the event released are actually something good to read, to know, to ask, to discuss. The rest are just rude rants and you are lucky to get away with just a ban and/or deleted post on the forum.

90% of what makes the game broken is its community. (Not a real statistic of course)

Right, well, I got tired of writing and I can't think of anything else right now, and I want to go play the event. I just hope I find something good and interesting to read later on.

    Uh huh. Alright

    That is not what most people are complaining about. It's "the event isn't fun enough" or "I want more cakes" or "I have a problem with the crowns". You don't need to spend much time on the forum to know OP is right.

    People complain about a lot of stuff actually, some gamebreaking, some not, that is true. But this is what op said and I quote:

    "Not sure what the company policy is on purchased content, cosmetic or otherwise (the game for example), but that's the only thing you might have the right to demand on."

    How is op right again?

    They have the right to complain, yes. OP also has the right to complain about the complaining.

    Most of the people whining on the forum are not doing so because of issues like constant crashes and terrible performance. I have a lot of sympathy for people running into that. I have a lot of frustration with the people whining because the event isn't as fun as they hoped. Like ######### please, you probably paid $10-20 for this game and they've done nothing but add content, most of which is free for all players. Yes the game is a buggy mess, yes I wish it ran better, but the entitlement is super annoying.

    When I first started interacting with the community I though it was weird that everyone called it toxic. As time has gone on, I've started to agree, just for different reasons. People are usually chill in the post game chat, but there are a heck of a lot of people who incessantly complain about events and free DLC. If this were COD or something you wouldn't be able to play on the new maps without buying the DLC. You also definitely couldn't grind for the new content by just playing the game.

    You technically have the right to complain about whatever you'd like. Still, in my opinion, people are not justified in obnoxiously complaining about the quality of free events and free DLC. No one here bought a seasons pass in which the devs promised regular content drops. All of this stuff is free. Insulting the devs because they didn't make good enough free content is entitled, annoying, and regrettably widespread on the forum. OP is absolutely right to call that out.

    Why make a thread if you don't get the most upvotes? /s

    I think it's alright.

    A good amount of comments, some worth the read, even an upvote. See, I would say most people here disagree with what I said, not quite with the topic precisely. And hey I didn't make my post extremely precise and explanatory so I got no right to say anything on the comments. But here, I see alright comments, nothing too rude, nothing wasting my time, at least a little detail. That's not really the case with the forum.

    I think it's at the very least better then assumptions on company assets and demands on how they should be spent.

    I don't think it's wrong to complain, I think as a community we need to complain in such a way that there is no reason to not be listened to. Demanding will not help, being rude will not help, basing outcomes on fiction will not help.

    Completely agree with your point here. Imo the majority of the complaints on the forum, now and always, are not about the game's playability, though.

    You're right....up to a degree. The exception being Console players who purchased a product but the product doesn't perform or work as advertised...AKA the cyberpunk buggy mess treatment. Other than that....yeah....forum is full of weh weh weh....*spirit noises*

    exactly, if you're selling a product no matter what it is, you're gonna get an honest review.
