  • Ah, I see! Thank you for your contributions. I urge anyone who has an issue I missed to add to the list.



  • @DemonicChocobo:

    I lol’d

    Sadly, I have seen a couple people seriously complain about this. sigh



  • I like greg’s list.

    That second girl is really imbalanced. I bet I could fix her.



  • Best thread I’ve seen in a while. Maybe TB will finally fix all these issues omg!

    Seriously though, I think TB has done a pretty good job in realizing that they are the professional game developers here, and that most people who complain on forums aren’t. I hope they continue doing their thing, instead of caving to every whiners demands.
