reddit From someone who works in the software industry: Hey CR team, don't listen to the haters, what you did with this update is actually really impressive!

No, seriously!

In fact, it's so impressive that I just wouldn't have believed that it was possible. We're in the software industry, so clearly the lockdown situation barely has any impact on us. (At least, for well managed teams...) Yet, it took you guys so long to literally push out a heavy downgrade 'update' to your game.

So many serious bugs, I've lost tracked.

Replaced a hated system with an even worst one. (Quite impressive in itself!)

Took months and months to release it.

Haven't added any QoL changes.

Still haven't fixed old problems (card info screen for example still shows the intro video first instead of the stats AND the stats still haven't been standardized across all cards, for example it's missing the DPS info for a lot of card... which is just really basic as far as stats goes for what brands itself as an e-sport game.)

The new GUI and the error messages are incredibly un-intuitive.

In addition, you've pretty much killed casual clans, insulted your players, forced your players into playing the game "your way" if they want to get any account progress, removed any other incentive to play, you've refused to acknowledge the serious foundational flaws in your thinking and design... In fact, several posts from Drew are doubling down on these design flaws.

But here's the brilliant part, so brilliant I just can't imagine it, you've managed to do all of this as a team without anyone, to my knowledge, getting fired. Honestly, as someone in the industry, I'm literally amazed. Kudos to you all!

As someone in the industry, I know how this works. Your A team created the game a few years ago, and the fast fun gameplay got millions of players hooked. The A team then moved on to different teams/division/companies and what's left is who wasn't able to get a better position. Usually those people are at least smart enough to run their department in a long tested and proven method of small iterative changes.

But not you guys, you were brave enough to give up on any improvements and just get rid of anything good and replace it with untested badly designed stuff.
