When you subscribe to an MMO, you buy the rope with the goat. It helps to know the quality of the rope; if it is rotten you may lose your goat.
Writing a review there that clearly talks about the company with the power to kill the game at a whim, that’s very valid. Claiming GW2 is garbage just because it's done by a studio that belongs to NCSoft... now that may be out of line (unless you played it and you really think it IS garbage.)
You also may even notice the OP did not ask for you to give it a bad rating, but to up-vote the specific "NCSoft Story" reviews.
You can rate something 5 stars yourself and still agree and up-vote a negative review. It's not like people that are going to buy the game will stop buying it because of that warning. The real point is to call attention to the parent company's business practices.
yep and wasnt refering to the OP and that method. That what drew me to Amazon in the first place. But while I was there I did notice some reviews that were just as i described, one staring of the product and no mentio nof the product but based off of NCSoft. Like I said, I dont feel it's wrong or right, it's personal choice to get the message across. But I'm just stating that I couldnt do it. I dont get it, but that doesnt automatically mean I frown upon it. If I dont get something, how can I pass judgement on it without understanding it fro mtheir point of view? I cant. I know myself though and it would be against what I believe is right for me, which may be pure evil in the eyes of another person and not right for them.
And yeah it was only a few and more than likely those type of reviews that one star the game because of affiliation with NCSoft probably wont have much of an effect, as most of them are about the actual gameplay. It seems the common complaint is about the grind.
Or better yet, it's like posting pictures of yourself on the internet. I see nothing wrong with that if people choose to do so, but you wont catch my picture on the internet willingly because it's not right for me. In fact only about 11 pictures now exist of me in the past 28 years, most were before taken before I was 10. Between 10-16, no pictures. After 18, only 3 including driver's license, military ID, and one that I allowed someone to take of me. Besides that no more. But no ill will towards people with 1,000s of pictures floating around of them from this year alone. It's somethingthey choose to do and that I cant do.
Wait, make that four since 18. I had take a new one for the DoD civ. pic. and dont know if they destroyed the old pic or have it in a file somewhere.
