Am I going to retire? Nope, not for awhile.
Am I getting bored of this game? Yes and No. Playing by myself gets pretty boring, but playing with friends I have a blast.
Do I think the game is getting stale? Gameplay, no. Maps, yes.
Do I still get fustrated over the game? Bugs, no. Havent seen many in awhile. Fighting a full team of ascended while my team would only have atmost 1 ascended, yes happens nearly every 4v4 match I play. Just cant wait until I ascend
Am I greatful for everything SSM has done? Yes and No, I am very greatful for this MP and all of its updates. But there were many disappointments such as new bugs popping up, player reset, reskin dlc, etc. But I did love the new content including Ascension, even though it can be extremely hard to kill an ascended and makes it less fun, with this prestiging system it keeps me wanting to play more. Keep up the good work SSM and hope you dont cause anymore problems lol.
Am I ever thinking of selling this game? Never, 2 reasons. 1.It is still fun SP and MP. The SP and MP may have its flaws, but I cant denie that they are still fun to play. 2.Its a GoW game, I will never sale them.
By that logic if you notice a problem with your car and you get the manufacturer to repair it and they do a bad job, you shouldn't tell them they screwed up because it's not like you could've done any better.
The gods overestimate themselves.
If the fourth weapon class does indeed turn out to be gauntlets/cestuses and they don't cost too much and maybe if SSM adds some more ToTG maps (or at the very least makes ToTG versions of some of the competitive maps) then I'll probably dive back in for a little while. I don't really see myself playing long-term though; just not enough content to keep me coming back.
Basically wat I'm trying to get at is they are human and they made some mistakes and swam in a pool to deep for them that doesn't mean they are incompetent they just **bleep**ed up. You one of those people that complain so outrageously hard that all ur complaints mean nothing. Shouting insults will get u no where and serves no purpose other then making u feel good about urself. And no I'm not a ssm fanboy that let's everything slide they have done a lot of things wrong pre and post launch but it obviously wasn't so bad that we all quit playing so they did some things right as well. And ssm is gonna do wat they want to do so hit up gypsy with ur complaints and if they fix it then great if not oh well. Just don't buy the next game from ssm or give them another chance and if u aren't 100% satisfied then trade the game in and walk away.
Competition? Why yes, I would love some.
me im just waiting till FF14 comes out then i'll be putting alot of time into that game, this game was fun while it lasted but it gets boring playing same maps and same style of fighters everyday only time i get some fun is with playing with 2-3 more friends and running into other good parties as well. Getting some high lvl matches is always good and exciting but havent had one of those in a while, till then i'll just keep grinding xp till all gods are done
