***Rumor/unverified information***

I am not the kind of person that finds great joy in other people’s misfortunes, failures or downfalls. However, I think it’s perfectly fine to critique someone that’s acting rather salty due to bad performance is sales or whatever. I mean, I’ve had my ups and downs, but I don’t take that out on others. Anyways, I think you get the idea. So let’s jump into the topic at hand here shall we? As I was saying, just now I noticed that a said “LawBreakers” (it’s a FPS game for PS4 and PC, and the game launched on the 8th of August this year) developer got really salty on Steam just because a Gamer asked the following question:

“Should I play overwatch or lawbreakers? Probably going to play overwatch since it looks better and this game has a pretty abysmal population count. Probably going to be dead in a month or two.” – JUSTICE

Well, that wasn’t a mean, evil or stupid question right? At least I don’t think so, as the person in question only stated his or her opinion (in this case, that opinion seems to be very close to the truth). Nevertheless, that question made BKP_NathanWulf (a supposed developer for “LawBreakers”) rather darn salty:

“If you like slow movement, being unable to kill enemies because they’re invulnerable or shielded, getting stunned, pinned, locked in place, 1-shot, and losing the game because somebody pressed a button that instantly kills your whole team, play Overwatch.If you like playing a shooter with a bunch of unique types of movement and some powerful but not game-breaking abilities where every role has a chance at killing every other with some various situational advantages to fit different play styles, play LawBreakers.”BKP_NathanWulf

All aboard the salt train…

I honestly wouldn’t have commented on that post if I worked for “LawBreakers”, because comments like that is just going to make it even worse for everyone at the “LawBreakers” camp (for all I know, that salty comment could have been published by Cliff Bleszinski himself, the Director of the game…). So in my opinion, it’s better to put all your energy and focus into your game instead of wasting times on publishing salty comments on the Internet. As for the faith of “LawBreakers”, only time will tell if the game will end up like “Battleborn” did (“Overwatch” slayed “Battleborn”).

And with that said, what’s your take on this matter? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section down below!

  • uh The developers response is perfectly reasonable as well as sensible.

    • How is talking shit about another game that’s doing way better than your game some how a reasonable response?

      • Cuz everything he said was true. That’s how.

        • I’m just going to quote my friend here (he plays “Overwatch” quite a lot):

          “Would pay to know who is invulnerable, genji deflect skill only last 2 to 3 seconds and have cooldown, D.va defense matrix only last for 2 seconds if you use the whole meter, tracer is invulnerable during her animation of rewind which if you know from what direction she came from you can wait for her and kill her at the moment the animation finishes. Reinhart’s shield breaks after taking enough damage.

          So If anyone is complaining about those mechanics, then it simply means they aren’t skilled enough to counter such easy problems.”

          • OMG dude I don’t care a tiny bit about this nonsense you just replied with. Nobody complained. There wasn’t a single complaint. It was an opinion.

            Again, the response was perfectly reasonable and sensible.

          • “It was an opinion”, first you stated that it was “valid” critique, as in “facts” and the “actual” truth. Now it’s an “opinion”? An “opinion” is not the same thing as “truth” or “fact”. Thus my previous comment that is 100% valid and true.

          • Stickz

            And in your article you write that this guys opinion was very close to the truth.
            Can you see into the future and know how many people will play?

            Pretty hypocrit to flame Germaximus for something u do in ur article ….

            and btw u dont work for Lawbreakers, u work for a company, not a game.

            And tbh the supposed dev is kind of right besides the being negative nancy stuff. Lawbreakers is a shooter at it’s core with features to facilitate that.
            Overwatch is more like a game of counterpicking and tactics than and fps shooter at its core, which is fine.

            and why do “you” put “everything” in “”””?!?!?!

          • kreator

            Shut up!

        • Sam

          Come on guys. Of course the comment came off as salty. My eyes are dry just from reading it. However most of it is true in a sense. Because nowhere does it say they are invulnerable forever “Robin Ek”. Ultimately it would come down to what you prefer in a game right? Just because you complain about something doesn’t mean you haven’t figured out how to counter it, it just means you still find it annoying and probably not fitting to your playstyle, this is no reason to go name calling someone to be unskilled. Also I think the Germaximus was meaning the OP chose Overwatch based on his opinion, and the facts he speaks of are in the response about some of the seemingly game breaking mechanics in Overwatch, which can be frustrating for the best of players, or so I hear. Again, maybe it is MY reading comprehension that needs help, and not yours. 🙂

    Nothing wrong with the Dev. They are absolutely right in highlighting the problems with a competitor’s game. Some people are just too stupid to see so you have to point things out to them.

    Games like Overwatch and the current CoD games have gone away from skill and enabled players to get their quick fix by pushing a button and seeing their opponents obliterated. That kind of system that caters to the brainless crowd does more harm than good for the game industry.

  • andrewsqual

    Lol all that talk about AAA gaming being dead the last 5 years is enough to make me avoid anything by Cliff Bleszinski even if it WASN’T some mediocre online only crap.

    How hilarious and ironic is it that Ninja Theory released their brand new, 100% NOT big publisher produced game, Hellblade around the same time as Lawbreakers AND it is selling way more than Cliff’s game ever did lol. AAA games are dead, yeah whatever you say Bleszinski.

  • Jason H

    I don’t see anything wrong with the developer’s response.

  • Hans Wurst

    This site again…just in it for the clicks, with friend accounts pushing the article on N4G.
    Sometimes I wonder if you’re the same guys who run the despicable Thisgengaming site. TGG fits just too well.

  • mightyfox

    This article has no story, what they replied with didn’t sound salty at all. Thegg, as usual, is making news out of nothing and blowing it out of proportion.
    Clickbait at its finest.

  • SevTheBear

    I think many Devs would get a bit salty if people made posts about how much better another Devs games was in their forum. The person who posted it knew he would piss off someone. Of course the Dev team should just ignore posts like this.

    Honestly, Overwatch and LawBreakers aims for the same group of gamers. But in their own way. Both games demand skills if you wanna kick the other teams ass. Overwatch is more like and MMORPG raid where all players needs to do their part for their team to win. Either via kills or support skills. LawBreakers is a bit more old school like Quake and Unreal. Run around and kill as many as you can until you win (like COD).

  • Kishnabe

    Developer should have ignored it. No point in fueling the flames.
