@Silversurferguy FFXIV did awesome with that. I was skeptical when they went that direction but it payed off huge! Unfortunately, I don't think thats very good option here. There's a bit of a reputation and trust issue in this case. Transperency and follow through are needed at this point. We need to be able to look at the next game from Bioware and say "Yeah, some mistakes were made with Anthem, but they made it right and i can trust they'll do the same this time if something goes sideways."

@SofaJockeyUK  Successfully debunked? If you say so 😂

@Aftershox72  There already is a reputation and trust issue. It can’t get any worse for BioWare.

Nothing other than a complete shut down and relaunch will fix anthem IMO. Otherwise the only direction this game can go in, is in the dirt six feet under.


I think nonsense like this has been successfully debunked in other threads. There's no basis for shutting down a game with great core gameplay and the financial impact that would have on BioWare, when all it needs is more content and further loot balancing.


Ppl who writing love letters THINK its been debunked, thats a difference. But actually it did work for other games in that aweful state. Whats about the financial impact? What do you know about their financials? Nothing i guess! That kind of content it needs, is nothing they can simply add like some of their completly unchallenging strongholds, their is a lot of work balancing wise involved.

If a studio shuts down a game, I would think it would need to refund the players.

Something that is wholly unnecessary for a functioning and enjoyable game.

@Silversurferguy O absolutely agree, there's been a somewhat downward trend in reputation and trust and it's absolutely justified. However, Bioware at its best is really good, but it hasnt been there in awhile

Oh you would think. Of course you would think, but thats all right? The game isn't functioning nor enjoyable.

@Aftershox72  For sure. I think what BioWare needs more than anything else right now, is good faith from consumers. Anthem unequivocally burned a lot of bridges with players. All their plans have fallen flat, they refuse to fix core problems like loot, and now that the player base has dwindled to a handful, new problems are emerging like matchmaking. Even their stream on the cataclysm fell on deaf ears and no one was excited about it. There’s no point on supporting the game at all if no one takes them seriously. Their PR is that bad

in 5 months we have had 1 stronghold. thats it. at this rate what should we even expect? we were told lots of things would drop but most people have left the game now. destiny 2 has had about 10x the content drop in the time on a game a year old. how long do we wait for them to fulfil their promises?
