(I see that this post is from December, I’m still going to give my thoughts on it.)
They really screwed those of us who did the work over in every way imaginable. “Oh look, you like the armor coating? Screw what it looked like in the preliminary images, you get dirty steel and matte red instead of polished aluminum and a nice crimson shine! You like the weapon coatings? Screw you too, they no longer match the armor and are only for three weapons! You wanted a vehicle coating? God, what are we, generous? Screw you along with the others, absolutely not!”
I get the feeling this post will be flagged by at least a dozen people for the way I’ve talked, but I don’t care. Us 152’s know what we deserved, and this sure as hell wasn’t it. I know the deal was originally just to have the armor and weapon coatings, but I like the sound of Vehicle coatings after the disaster it turned out to be. I want to be noticed, not look like another overpriced shop bundle! Because that’s exactly what I look like, and I’m not happy about it. Ironically enough, people will probably recognize 152’s for what they got screwed out of, not the work they put in. But that’s just the sad truth, isn’t it? We were some of the most dedicated, some of the proudest, some of the best. But 343 doesn’t see our group as “Watchdogs.”
To them, we’re just dogs. Nothing more.
(By all means, flag me. I’m just unhappy with the way things have been going, and I know I’m not the only one. So before you do flag me, remember that we’re all players at the end of the day. We’ve all put in different levels of work and all have our varying amounts of satisfaction with the game and the way 343 has handled it. I personally love the game, but they should have done more to deliver in certain areas, especially since half the things they failed to deliver fully on were already added at launch, if not present in the beta.
