Are they bored? I made a post mocking the store weekly rotation and somebody brought up an interesting theory that honestly, based on recent events, actually seems plausible. So much so, it is kinda scary honestly.
I mean, they release such low quality content, super lazy it seems, not to mention super slow.
Although they put some effort into reworking the store, tour, gameplay mechanics, etc… This game honestly FEELS boring. Maybe that is a reflection on how TC feels about Gears? I mean, it is really starting to feel that way. I cannot believe that I haven’t considered this earlier but man, it would explain some of the crap they have been releasing and will more than likely continue too.
What are your thoughts? Props to the guy who made me think about this XD
I’ve said many times I don’t believe TC lacks inspiration, or motivation or passion. But leadership.
We’ve lost a good handful of devs in the last six months ago, all or most of which had an important role in development. Rod obviously being one of the biggest examples as he was literally the head of the game.
But what devs are left, trying to shamble together a finished product with the entire community looking over their shoulder with a flaming pitchfork ready to criticize… I’m not surprised they slowed down since all of their plans seem to have been awarded backlash and rile the community more.
And their current plans are full 180s on their old ones in response to said backlash.
I will give TC grief when they deserve it, and boy do they deserve it, but I really think that they’re focusing most if not all of their resources on operation 5. I think that they feel it is a make or break operation for them. So many players have left and still, like me, others have stuck around. But with the new operation they’re going to have to compete with new release games, next gen consoles, and even competing consoles. I think TC is just focused on op 5 and throwing us less then a bone for operation 4.
