I’ve held back touching upon CaptainGecko’s less than stellar interview on Priority One’s most recent podcast for a couple of reasons.
The first is that nothing really new was talked about. PvP is a non starter, the KDF represent a small percentage of the player base etc.
The second was his poor comedic attempt at making light of loadout issues, the ‘hey everything else works’ excuse, and the ‘I don’t have a problem’ comment. You can see a transcript of that conversation with Elijah here.
I listened to the original interview, and he was trying to make light of the whole issue. I don’t believe his intention was to be malicious, but I do believe Elijah should have pushed the issue with CaptainGecko.
Simple Communication Rule #1: Don’t make light of peoples problems. Ever.
SalamiInferno on the other hand been communicating regularly, and it’s in that communication that I see things changing. His forum posts are explained well and speak to the active player base. Even his twitter posts move things in a positive direction.
My only sore spot with SalamiInferno is that yes, it is a grind after 50. Whether you are a single toon player or someone with 10 alts, it’s a massively painful grind.
