Gaming companies/publishers to avoid
« on: Monday , 11 September 2017 - 23h49 »
Something that happened with the First Assault game a couple of weeks ago (just read about it) inspired this topic.

TL;DR. Game was fine but apparently was not making enough money (what other reason to change it). Release massive update that craps on existing players and puts almost everything behind a paywall. Update not well received and a month and something later, instead of rolling back, they just decide to take the game down, while still in open beta, and no refunds for anyone.


The list so far

- EA
- Ubisoft
- Nexon


Im creating this because people should be aware of this type of behaviours.

That's corporate business man for you. No passion for what they are doing.

Thumbs up on creating this black list.
