Accountability at Giants software ?

Post by Richard Dower » Tue Feb 26, 2019 7:45 pm

Is there any ?...Over 3 months on, broken game.
No communication from Giants, no timelines offered.

Over 1 million copies sold, yet no one is held to account and fired, blaming Focus won't cut it, blaming staff shortages is not acceptable.

Blaming and labelling the paying customers as haters and toxic will not cut it.

There needs to be corporate accountability to paying customers.

Not sure the game is broken.

Also accountability and you getting what you want are not synonyms. If they are short staffed firing people helps how?

Sure communication could be better. Companies sometimes go quiet when things are not going as expected.

Over 3 months on, broken game.
Some people have bugs/issues, some are disappointed. But obvisouly people play it. Thus not 'broken'.


No communication from Giants, no timelines offered.
They communicate here.
Timeline on what? Every specific bug reported?


Over 1 million copies sold, yet no one is held to account and fired,
How do you know that? Do you work at GIANTS? And is firing the only way for a company to hold an employee accountable for something?


blaming Focus won't cut it
No, but why not try some constructive criticism instead of just blaming?


blaming staff shortages is not acceptable.
That's what you think. That is not the same as a universal truth.


Blaming and labelling the paying customers as haters and toxic will not cut it.
Has GIANTS done that? Where?


There needs to be corporate accountability to paying customers.
Correction: *You think* there needs to be corporate accountability to paying customers.

I'm all for the notion there needs to be better communication on their end. But an over the top dramatization of what's happening isn't what we need.

This is on the verge of being locked for more and more ranting.

One thing what could really help, if people stop preordering the game will buy it after release date. Also there is possibility to get refund, people should use this. Maybe then game makers would consider to not
release half-made products.

Is ranting considered spam? Or is it just negativity that is unnecessary and only clutters up the forum?

I really feel like some people make these threads for the lulz. I think all these bash giants/fs threads should be removed as soon as they are made.

I wish Giant would focus just on PC and drop PS4 and XBox platform. I believe most of the complains come from this area

Why would they drop a market that sells hundreds of thousands of copies ??

There are plenty of complaints from all aspects of the game, PS4 Xbox and pc. I've seen a multitude of pc players complain as well as console players.

So on your reckoning giants should just shut up shop and stop making games completely.

:neutralnew:


Edit : actually console sold more copies so pc only sales will lose them millions
Within ten days of launch, developer Giants Software announced that Farming Simulator 19 had sold one million copies. Of that figure, around 45 per cent were on PC, according to the German studio.
450 thousand in pc , that makes 550 thousand on console in 10 days.

Yep giants should stop working with its biggest client sales platform because that makes a whole lot of sense

And because of that comment making this painfully obvious, this thread will get locked, probably by guil, because he doesn’t want it to become a debate. You just watch.
