    Well the cult (classic) and controversy parts are coming along nicely? Give him a bit more than half a century to make it a fair comparison at least, Rome wasn't built in a day :D

    No, I wasn't talking about him. I was talking about someone who criticized the game mechanics for the same list of failings and got ignored.

    Although I gotta say I don't quite get what's supposed to be so wrong with the writing... Apart from the "rustic" maille or armor or whatever :D

    "I'm hard to kale"

    That and the fact that sser considers flogging to be an effective way to cure alcoholism.

    Srsly tho, the writing is above average and, by AAA standards a fucking classic.

    Writing quality aside (I liked it), have to hand it to the team for ignoring all the SJW horseshit.

    Thanks for the review @Darth Roxor As weird as it sounds, made me buy it. And I'm glad I did, although my screen got almost punched through because of it a couple of times.

    I would say because its mostly common sense. SJW do not buy games and especially they do not buy this sort of games. Appealing to noisy minority that make noise but do not buy your product when offending silent majority is not a smart move. And it would also consume time and resources they do not have to spend.

    The writing is mostly unnecessary bloat that do not really affect game in any way. And the way how say undead crisis was handled call for punishment from the gods.
    It would do better with talking heads and more dialogs like kind of TO/FFT. Wall of text could be saved for in-game codex and in-game lore books.

    Hm. I remember two cases that could be the one.
    First with Lampros going ballistic about Perfect Focus nerf and other balance stuff. He was using math and tested stuff to death to prove his points. Well he was right but as a end result devs cut off Perfect Focus from the game and all we get was a shitty Adrenaline. No fun allowed.
    Second one was about battle AI that could be easily exploited in specific situations that become more visible(and often) on higher difficulty levels. This one was hilarious as there was me and other guy(or two) who was providing examples and stuff and there were mods or music guy who was "but AI is alright", and we was like "look, do this and check it yourself, and tell us if its alright" and he was like "but its mostly OK". What was funny that all changes to AI was done silently and there were no comments from any devs, where just simply "yes, we know, current AI is just placeholder and we gonna fix it before launch". They eventually did and well the battle AI is pretty good(even if still do some weird moves sometimes, ha even annoying often but that lack of communication really made me worried about game that time.
    Turns out they break other stuff but hey its another story.

    I do not remember any censoring thought. Can be wrong.
