General C:DW rant



  • I just wanted to express my sad feelings about this expansion. I LOVE C:MW, even with some bugs in it, its still a great great game. I have been playing it for 110 hours, sometimes screaming and slamming my mouse into my desk, sometimes getting wet eyes of joy, always cherishing the possibility to take part in such an awesome experience.

    And then some apparently big-shot company approached the developers (i’m east European so i dont really know the magnitude of Spike) and sprinkled some cash over them. After big business came into play, this abomination of an expansion was developed. I cannot express how sad I am to see this candy-colorful, chaotic, arcadey, shallow and just plainly uninteresting game. C:MW had something what I like to call “style”. The dirty violence, amazingly realistic sound-effects, medieval-grayscale color scheme, maps consisting of stone and ground, fog and rain, humoresque but adequate voice acting and much much more - all this came together to a STYLISH product.

    Dont get me wrong, I’m not mad at TBS for behaving that way, they’re people after all, they have to make a living. Take this post as a howl of sorrow over the capitalistic mechanisms which take our cherished game away replacing it with a fucking colorful carousel for 14 year olds which apparently are more profitable (likely to get some money off their parents) than us adults.

    There’s your problem.

    So the longer you play the less your opinon matters?
    Seems to be the case with TBS.



  • I would have agreed, prior to playing it.

    But now I have played it I am intrigued as to how the production version will come out.

    There are several new features in CDW that were spart, more user friendly, things they obviously learned from CMW.

    If they can push the extra mile and sew up the outstanding deficiencies (e.g. lack of TO maps, maps too big) then I really cannot see myself going back to CMW.



  • Don’t like it?…

    Well… there is always Chivalry: Medieval Warfare… stop crying…

    i for one, like the new game… it just needs balancing and TO’s
