Welcome to the forum; it’s a good place, and thanks for actually writing a well thought out opinion and not just dropping a word deuce and leaving.
Two weeks and two patches later, the free starter package still doesnt work. If anything the game doesn’t have enough negative reviews imo.
yes they are justified. IOI ,for the most part, has gotten a free pass from the critics and fanbase since 2016. They deserve all the backlash they get after this latest controversy
I remember IOI getting called out for their Offline Mode being restrictive multiple times, and still are for that matter, the steam → EGS DLC controversy last year also caused some hoo-ha, and the less said about their baffling update prioritisation the better.
I don’t find your statement to be in any way true.
