Why is that relevant? Or why are we now in a 1 group versus another group to determine what happens in this game? Do you want a list of people’s names so you can hunt them down? Or is it just because you don’t believe me or think I am lying?
When people said that having to find 25 seeds (which were more than readily available) out of 100 to replenish planting stock for Farming was still way too much “work” for them - did we ask how many were in that group? For any other topics (polarizing or not) do we expect people to share how many are in the group that has the same views as them? No.
We have polls but don’t expect those that vote to justify how many are in their group and feel the same way. So why is it different here?
The number is 85… Does that change the discussion? No. Will Aenea and her group of people now not leave? No. The number is irrelevant… I would hate to see Aenea (and others) go, but she has already wiped herself and proven that she is willing to do that when the old Market was removed. That means her “leaving point” is contextual based on pain felt. So we just find where the breaking point is and stop just before that… wipe 15 our of 40 planets… there issue solved and both sides win.
What if I said that you got 40 storage slots and half the levels or all your ALTs as well as a blue prints that could cover 60% of your builds. Would that change the number of people that would leave? Who knows…
Honestly, I can respect but not control if people leave because they can’t look past their own interests to see a bigger picture of game health or are very attached to their builds, or can’t see how new things bring new excitement. We don’t lament those that left the forums or the game for other reasons. Or threaten to leave if we don’t have Titans by Christmas… Why here on this topic?
Many people don’t watch the forums, many people have tried to participate in the forums and don’t share anything anymore because of the lack of ability of some people to accept other people’s views or have a respectful conversation. So why would we assume the forum defines what is important or not?
Until people are willing to have a discussion on HOW we could accomplish something and then decide IF we should instead of just threatening to leave, why would any person that isn’t ready for a beat down on these forums actually share their views. Many just go with the crowd and trend because they don’t feel safe opening up here even though they are willing to do so in private.
