Why does Octus rarely interact with us? He just pastes some notes and posts from the website and sometimes engaged with people, but only when it’s a technical/bug problem. I have rarely seen him engage with us on what we want aside from one or two times.
I dOn’t understand why he doesn’t Comment on here, iT’s his job to engage and UnderStand what we want.
Have they spoken of us as Toxic? I’ve heard it thrown around many times but I haven’t seen a post/clip
I don’t really think we’re toxic due to the forum thing they used to make it blocking swears
There’s troll threads sometimes (40% me) and the annoying “gears is # on xbox/uninstalling gears 5” or something like die tc followed by 10 swear words
Well rod liked that tweet, but I guess that wasn’t directed at just us.
I guess it’s just the part time forum guys who refer to us (themselves?) as always too toxic for the devs to bother with. It has always felt TC have that opinion of forumers anyway.
Yeah we get troll threads and the odd screeching ejit, but octus was literally responding multiple times to a thread titled “F you F’ing TC, you F’s, fix your F’ing game” on reddit. Yet people always talk about how toxic a place the forum is.
I just don’t get it myself and if we ARE like that then tc have proved that they are willing to engage in discourse of that level via tiwtter and reddit, so why not here?
Let’s hope jamie getting involved is the sign that this is changing.
TBH though he could just be getting really, really bored during lockdown.
Octus can’t respond to a megapost made by the community but he can respond to some trash that was most likely bait, In my opinion he’s not really doing his job, especially during Quarantine when there’s not much to do and his job can easily be done online
He didn’t even reply when ryan kept tagging him into his mega thread. Nor did any one else ryan tagged either.
If fellow directors/head of departments can’t get any staff to post here, what hope do any of us have?
Given the quality of posts and threads on these forums, I’m not surprised that TC don’t want to engage with us. If it sounds like I have a low opinion of GOW fans, it’s because I do.
Not to excuse TC’s poor communication, but making sense of some of the nonsense here would be extremely hard. There’s a few gems every now and again where the discussion is actually coherant and contains good dieas and feedback, but those are a real rarity. It’d be nice if some of these threads could somehow make it up to TC. They could really learn a few things from them.
Gears community is toxic af imo, not only does the community not seem to have any real appreciation (nor understanding) for the franchise, they also seem to feel it necessary to whine about every little stupid thing under the sun with this game (microtransactions are one such example of a stupid complaint)
Gears community doesn’t know what it wants nor does it know what’s best for the franchise (Gears Tactics is one such example of really really bad idea)
