I've read both the latest interview and the reactions on the rpgcodex forums. Can't say I blame FC for being shocked, anyone not involved in the JA saga would've been. But it proves how much your friends at bC told you about this when they dropped the hot potato in your lap...

Did they somehow tell you "take this, make it TB and you'll totally rock"? What a joke. Just going around fixing something they fucked up ain't going to fix anything. Let me let you on a little dark secret. The RTwP system in the end didn't turn out half bad as it was supposed to be. IT WAS THE REST THAT SUCKED BALLS. From faces, to personalities, to no RPG, to stupid lame "quests", to weapon load-outs, to weapon themselves, to inventory, to combat, to progression, to enviroment, etc, etc everything sucked and felt like a cheap xerox copy of a Rembrandt.

So, no. RTwP was stupid because it wasn't needed. And because it was attached to JA2 name when it was called "Reloaded". It was offensive. But in itself, for any other strategic game, it would've worked.

After the interview it's even more clear you expected warm and fuzzy applause. Just because. Hmm... let me remember when we last had warm and fuzzy... I think it was about 11 years ago, when Ian said they MIGHT make a JA3. Then it went all to hell.

But if you think the people that criticize you are doing you a a huge dis-service, you're a dead wrong.

[color:#CC0000]The only people who've been giving actual help are the ones who pointed our what IDIOTIC moves you made and what you LACK. If you choose to sulk we're not the soccer-dads that like the G-Squad memes, it's your loss.[/color] We honestly regret you had to spend $30k to prepare for the KS, too. Anyone here could've helped you prepare better, for free. Let's point out a few obvious facts:

Kickstarter Campaign (or how to waste $30k):


  • You admitted you had a month to prepare for KS. You joined here only after it went live. Why, in the name of God, throw out so much knowledge BEFORE doing the KS? Either you think you're smarter than everyone here or ... you thought just creating some smoke would win everyone over. Both wrong assumptions.
  • It took you 9-10 updates to come up with decent details about what people are pledging money for. You actually give more info in your interviews than in your KS updates. You still haven't covered modding that would've given you the ultimate argument when the shitstorm debates hit you ("if you dont like what we do, we made it so you can mod it").
  • You claim to have a vision for JA because you are as hardcore fans as all of us. Yet you put on the top priority list adding a sector inventory, which is already in the game. Honest mistake for someone who only played JA2 for a couple hours.
  • You knew bC screwed us bad when they made all BiA merc faces look like shit. Instead of serving us a prerendered image of a gun I could've googled in 3 mins, you could've spent a day and some talent and come up with a "young Ivan" image. Fuck it, even Ivan in a tutu would've brought you pledges because WE DIG HUMOR. We don't dig Disney memes a lot, though.
  • You seem quite annoyed to include modding as one of the TOP MUST-HAVE features. Really? That's all you can say to the people who allowed you to actually play with the license now? It makes us wonder who is taking who for a ride here. Do you think of the modders as a nice badge you can put up on KS to attract more money and then get rid of? I hope you are ready to answer really hard questions there, because they will be asked.

[color:#CC0000]The sooner you quit the primadona act and realize we want you to succeed more than you ever dream, the better you will be. But if you think we'll let you do a trash job at it and just fuck up the license because... you know... everyone did it before you... boy you're in for a fight.[/color]

PS: If you have learned by now how to read a critical message the above list includes quite a few hidden tips on what people expect of you. But then again, you can also keep on blaming the big-bad-mean fans who don't want you to take JA to new heights of gaming.
