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
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!
