If you’re too naive to understand how it concerns you, and potentially everyone who picks up the game around now, then you have no business arguing.
Lemme lay it out for ya, real simple like
We’ve been here since launch, for some reason that upsets you.
We’ve got double, triple your hours. We’ve been playing longer. We know more about the game than you and have experienced all it has to offer.
Starting to see a pattern?
Take them as reviews, for the situation’s sake, does your opinion change?
Both games get boring, being neglected by their devs and starving their community, effectively killing their game. Then people like you come along, pick it up for the first time, and praise the devs for being sloppy. You may be experiencing it for the first time, and that’s good for you, but that’s like coming into possession of a banana peel. It’s already been used, had its fun, been played with, eaten. It may be good for you, but the rest of us are still starving. And you praising the fruitless tree it came from isn’t helping anyone, including your long-term experience in either game.
Notably, you haven’t even scratched the surface of endgame in either game, judging from your opinions based on your experiences. AFE is still quite buggy, Insane is still impossible to do without exploiting or getting extremely lucky, the replayability doesn’t exist after you complete the campaign a couple times, and the game is dead. You cannot do Extreme with bots, Intense gets difficult enough solo when you’re playing on the later missions. I’ve beaten it alone on Intense and I’ll tell you it’s pretty fuckin’ hard to do alone. Couple of my buddies have given up on 100% because it’s not achievable, or they just don’t want to spend weeks on weeks doing the same level over and over again to finally beat Insane by a thread’s stroke of luck. Listen to me when I tell you, you will not beat them without getting lucky or exploiting.
You’ve heard our accounts of PHG’s endgame, and yet you still drone on about how you belligerently believe JH will become a purchasable DLC. Belligerent means eager to go to war, in case you don’t know, so we can come to a better understanding. You quite clearly are attempting to instigate a rowdy response with your comments about us telling you JH is and will remain a pre-order exclusive. Furthermore, you’ve conveyed your opinion about the game’s sandbox several times, and your opinion aligns perfectly with someone who has less than 1000 hours in the game, hell I’d say even 500. Which, for argument’s sake, is like a toddler saying they don’t like the rules of Checkers because they don’t fully understand how it works. Now, I’m not calling you a toddler, I’m simply using that example as an analogy. What you’ve said previously has already been said dozens of times on this forum and has either caused an improper balance in the sandbox or rightfully fallen on deaf ears.
You are not the first flashy new guy that praises Illfonic’s mistakes and you definitely won’t be the last. So, please, break the chain. Let some other poor sap come along and get enthralled by this sinkhole.
To clarify, I’m not asking you to stop playing the game. I still play both AFE and PHG, but I am asking you to cut the whole hype train thing. There’s nothing hype about either game once you get into the nitty gritty. Same thing’s happening on Halo Infinite. I think it’s a fuckin blast to play, but in the long run, the microtransactions, weapon sandbox, and multiplayer system is flawed and requires dev attention. Let’s just you and me hope that our devs wake the fuck up and fix their mistakes.
Have we come to a mutual understanding?
