My friend was just having a DICUSSION on IRC About Why Klingons don't want to play anymore, and after awhile, I guess one of Cryptic's guys felt he was crying, but he wasn't, he was giving constructive criticism of the game, his response?
Cryptic_Falkoren > What I really don't understand is that since you play with everyone on the same server, why people don't roll both a Klink and a fed, if they want to pvp they play their klink, if they want to pve they play their fed and do STF's.
Thatís the rest of the conv.
Cryptic_Falkoren > That suggestion was a could and my lack of understanding why that during the interim of new content instead of QQ'ing they could do something that has entertaining value
wow. Thatís really all I had to say when I first read it.
He didn't but if you read the image there is a definate gap where something was said cause he starts a statement with and. Plus a time gap.
Tough to tell if it was important or not.
When you are a Developer or GM, and you refer to a customers criticism, be it constructive or not, as "QQ'ing" you have gone too far. Regardless of what the rest of the conversation entailed, it was going too far.
Had I ever said that to anyone during my days as a GM in Everquest, I would have been canned, and I was volunteer. I couldn't imagine repercussions if I had been a paid employee.
One rule stands in front of anything that anyone can ever say, Dev and Fanboi alike.
The customer is allways, and I do mean freaking ALLWAYS right.
You do not tell them they are wrong, you do not argue with them, and you DAMN sure do not tell them they are crying.
Falkoren, I do not know you, however if this is true and I was your boss, you would be picking gravel out of your backside right now from your 13 story fall from grace.
You just made one nasty mistake. I hope for you this doesn't blow up too big.
