In a somewhat bitter rejoinder to fans’ concerns over the limitations of the 6v6 TitanFall multiplayer maps, Respawn Entertainment have outlined not just their concerns, but also a startling amount of vitriol toward the people they want money from, and also indications of coronary heart disease.
Calling the earlier information given by their very own Vince Zamprella:
“something as insignificant as a number in a vacuum”
was enough to send our eyebrows off through the stratosphere to explore strange new planets, but just in case, ‘DKo5’ goes on to state that a number of player counts were tested, from:
“all the way down to 1v1 and up quite high”
which is, we have been assured by our on-site ‘numberician’, ‘quite high’. Well, that’s us sated. Thanks, bro.
Possibly the most startling comment came a little later, when he explains that:
“I literally have to stop playing every few rounds because my heart just can’t take it some times.”
which tells us that either he is battling some terrible illness and should seek immediate help, or that Respawn Entertainment have developed a game that can ‘literally’ instil all the excitement and trepidation of reading the ‘extreme side effects’ section of a box of sleeping aids.
Finally, even though we would have recommended he sit down, take some oxygen and think about calm blue waves for a while until the tingling in his left arm stopped, he decided to end on a high note, showing his own passive-aggressive support for a game he had a hand in designing. To us, this seems a little bit too much like a a stand-up comedian cocking a shotgun, waving it wildly at the audience, and telling them how funny he is.
“Can’t wait! Only a couple months until speculative threads like this are gone and people are actually talking about their experiences with the game.”
And though it’s true that the speculative threads will be gone, what with the nature of speculation rarely occurring after the event has happened, we can’t help but wonder if player’s experiences with the game take a backseat to player’s remembrance of “that dev that made a complete prick of himself on the NEOGAF forums a little while ago”.
