Line of Defense reevaluates F2P plans after shaky free weekend test

    
176

Following a tumultuous free play weekend, Line of Defense creator Derek Smart said that the game may or may not go forward with a free-to-play option and will certainly not be doing any similar open weekend tests.

Smart wrote a post-mortem of the weekend in which he addressed complaints and “disingenuous” Steam reviews of the early access test. “What we have seen this weekend by letting everyone in, is precisely the reason that we priced the early access tiers so high back in [September] so that we only attracted the few people who want to help us test and improve on the game,” he wrote.

He said that play and engagement time metrics were encouraging while criticizing gamers who didn’t read the documentation, wanted hand-holding, and complained that their computers couldn’t handle Line of Defense’s requirements.

Your original quote, that I posted in my first reply …
“Well, on a similar note, only a complete idiot would reply to a topic
that has been buried and dead for 10 days just to draw attention to
oneself, so, well-played Dr. Smart”
I get that you think he’s just doing that to draw attention to yourself, but I was just giving you an alternative reason why he would post, for the future if anybody lands on this page from a Google quote.
Also, if you necro a thread, most have moved on by now, so its not like he’s going to get allot of attention from the necro.  Heck, the only reason I knew about his post was that I was subscribed automatically to this thread when I posted something to GoldenGirl back when the article first came out.
I get you hate the guy (man, reading some of your other posts in this thread about the guy shows that), but saying he’s doing it just for attention, when most likely you and I are the only ones left to read it, doesn’t seem like the right reason.  Say what you want about the guy, but if nothing else, he’s not dumb.

Cosmic Cleric Zeolas dsmart3000ad jeremy2020 Morreion Righto Dr. Smart the second.  I simply pointed out he, for all intents and purposes, necro’d a thread just to draw attention to himself.  Upon pointing it out to him, he launched into a typical ad hominem, which is then where you came in.  Stop taking pointers on taking things out of content.

Zeolas Cosmic Cleric dsmart3000ad jeremy2020 Morreion That has nothing to do though with your original criticism against him for coming here and posting, which is all I was commenting on.  And his post that he made WILL show his sides of things, if someone Googles to this location.

Cosmic Cleric Zeolas dsmart3000ad jeremy2020 Morreion To which my point is that a simple Google search will show his side of things quite clearly, and if it doesn’t paint him in a good light, he truly has no one to blame but himself.

Or, maybe he’s just trying to protect his rep by offering his side of othe story, for when someone via a future Google search lands here and reads.

dsmart3000ad Zeolas jeremy2020 Morreion MikedotFoster You’re going with that? Seriously? Clearly you didn’t have anything meaningful to add, so you’ve resorted to injecting nonsensical bullshit into the discussion. 

You and your ilk are everything that’s wrong with gaming. Everything.

So with that, I’m out. Have fun.

dsmart3000ad Zeolas jeremy2020 Morreion MikedotFoster Bro, I confess, I totally didn’t read that wall of text, as honestly, seemed like a complete waste of my time.  But it’s cool that you can take other people’s comments out of context while stating they’re doing the same.  Say, don’t you have a Coke machine you need to beat the crap out of or something, instead of wasting your time on a site that’s run by people who have the balls to call you out?
