Skeptical of the game

My point was with all the hoopla about exploiting the female body and such, maybe a bit more about the male battleframe would be in order. Another thing I noticed when I played FireFall was the number of males using a female character instead of male. Can't say why, but was the first game I encountered that while playing. Maybe male players want to be a different gender and this type of game allows that, i cannot say because I don't have all that information. It was just my observation. With all the focus on gender this and that, it could be anything. like the world isn't confusing enough as it is.

Like I said, SY, we are all free to think what we want. I was just being inquisitive. I actually walked up a group of people and heard some really insulting remarks about females and jumped to the defence. I was promply rebuked because all of the group were really males and a couple were in female character. So my bad for knowing or being able to read minds. But I held my ground since my wife was also my partner in the game and was standing next to me when this happened. And you suggest I made it up. Thanks for the support.

Maybe chivalry really is dead and no one stands up for anything these days. I still respect women and everyone as that is how i was taught. I guess i am just old school, but there is always someone or something. And FireFall seems ages ago.

Lol, literally nobody cares. The only time this is an actual "issue" is when developers cave to tine, loud outrage mobs. If you ignore them it's a non-issue

Firefall was originally community funded. However as soon as investors were involved the community lost a lot of things. Founder only crate worldspawns suddenly became available to non founders. Founder bonuses were removed and replace with a garbage buff. Gliders which we paid REAL money for suddenly got truncated so they were all on the same timer. That one was a major burn because the whole point of buying the gliders was to speed up traveling across the world.

Small problem with your post here, as we didnt see the game until it was WELL into development, paid for with money from investors before we had even seen the game we had all come to love. The just gave us the option to buy in early and give them some little extra spending money, thats all. Might wanna take a look at this post here just so your aware. https://forums.em8er.com/threads/not-exactly-a-complaint.1896/post-60233 .

That said, I agree, founder only crates should have been us only. Founder bonus nerfs were garbage. Glider nerfs sucked. The problem here is, that all of this took place well after Grummz Resigned, and left, and they had plenty of time to change course, but they didnt. They kept just saying "Grummz this Grummz That", despite the fact he had no impact at that point because he was kept running around the globe so they could just keep the devs working on the project the way they wanted, not the way the community wanted far up until the point he resolved, and then much past that when he did leave, when these changes happened.
