Drones were firing on him but whatever, I am sure you're more reputable on this matter.

10/10 would patch again.

Hopefully this is a huge lesson to the dev team in better business practices surrounding resets and patches though.

You'd think we'd have already got this down to a fine science after 12 years.

But nope, still putting an active player in charge of balancing the game.

Jeff obviously isn't going to do it, who better to be in charge than an active, endgame, knowledgeable player?

A third party without their own agenda would be nice.

Sure it would be nice, but it'll never happen.

Unless you have some benefit to doing this, why would you ever become a dev?

You don't get paid, you don't get any ingame compensation. You receive a hilarious amount of hate from the playerbase. Writing "worked for SS" on a resume probably won't get you anywhere as this is the definition of shitty hole in the wall game that no one has ever heard of. So unless you get some personal satisfaction out of making this game better, for yourself or for others, there's just no point.

A random third party doesn't have a passion for this game like a player does. And since there's no pay, why would a third party agree to work on this?

EDIT: The shitty part is, seems like Jeff just takes advantage of that passion instead of embracing it. How many devs have we had over the years? How many left because of hate or because of burnouts?

I mean, there is Churchill. He doesn't play and is passionate about the game.

Not only that, how many devs have we had banned for exploiting for their team.

I think the only dev account that was actually banned was Purple.

The real question is:

How many devs were completely removed from the game after their transgression?

None!

If they make money off them, why would they ban them? I want to compare this to other games, but I just cant. Nothing lines up. If someone abuses exploitable content then its just "oh no, your sorry? okay thats fine, lets grandfather it and allow the users to keep their gains".

Fuck you SS.

Actually both were permanently banned and never allowed to return, so...

*Imitates HPA voice*

Wrong!

PA actually had a couple of accounts under his name, subbed, and on a p2p team for about a year with bases deployed in Wild Space.

Then Red Faction blew up Infernal Empire. He hasn't been seen since.
