Why is this forum not promoted, why is it even a thing? The devs rarely check it.

I've been on this forum since the launch of BF2 & I RARELY see devs reply to stuff, it's a weekly or biweekly thing. So I'm curious, why is this forum even a thing? Seems like a waste of resources to me. I just wish devs would actually check it.

    The forums probably exist out of a sense/obligation of protocol. I'm just guessing though.

    You could have gotten a Dev response at some point in time and not even known it because of alternate accounts being used.

    The anonymity which forums provide probably acts as a double edged sword. Perceived neglect on one end. Perceived comfort and safety on the other.
    Forums can make people feel more at ease with posting things they normally wouldn't openly say in an environment connected to their direct social circles. (People in general have lost their jobs from being inappropriate on social media that directly ties to their identity.) So the users on here are probably more likely to be hostile, trashy, and vulgar, since their anonymous actions here have little consequences on their real life situations.

    I wouldn't blame Devs for avoiding this place, if they even do. ((Which I doubt. I'm under the impression some creative minds have peeked through some threads here... Maybe not even just ones specifically tied to the game, but have access to Star Wars happenings in general. Older minds may be more partial & familiar to forums as opposed to things like twitter and such. But these are just my own wild imaginings.))

    I dunno.
    Wknuto!

    Ive actually had ben reply to me personally at least three times and take part in one of my threads aswell this month alone and thats just me personally. You need to remember that just because they dont reply doesnt mean they dont read. They also have to check reddit and twitter. They probsbly check other places we arnt even aware of just to get as good and wide a picture as they can. Not to mention actually work on the game and whats coming constantly passing on messaged from community and devs back to each other.

    I personally think if dice is good at something with this game, its engaging with the community, even if its not the answers we want to hear, i always appreciate the time they take to reply to me.

    A little quieter as of late as we ramp up towards gamescom.

    Will the announcement be on one day only or multiple days?

    One day only for the announcement.

    Will it coincide with anything st gamescon like maybe a day where star wars games are shown, or will it just be a completly random moment throughout the 5 days?

    Probably because insulting and/or meanly criticizing them is against the official forum rules they wrote, lol.

    This forum is only for those who actually own and play the game , its too reclusive. Reddit on the other way due to its openness to the world is a better place to have good reputation, it is after all the bastion where the [removed] at launch started, a territory you shouldn't at any cost lose.

    Actually he’s started to post often and regularly about two months ago or something, which is not a criticism to him but a statement, thx @F8RGE for giving the forums more attention 🤠

    Dude, Ben is on here like all the time lol what are you even talking about? The only times I've seen devs not active on the forums are when they're on vacation or in really intense development, both of which they always give us advance notice. Just because they don't reply to every single thread doesn't mean they aren't active or promoting the forums.

    I see a lot, and I mean A LOT of people on the forum that no longer play the game and are still hating on the game from well over six months ago. They’ll redownload for an update play a single match and then delete and hop online to complain about it.
  • This thread is pretty unfair in my opinion.

    Yes, please do, I really want to watch the announcement live and not on replay.
  • They may not post, but I always have this strange feeling. Like I'm being watched. Surely there are some dev lurkers about
  • They do watch

    I think he meant that this is one if the reasons why other devs don’t post here.


    People becoming more toxic.

    Fixed it for you. You want people to be more active and positive? Post regular updates on the games state, acknowledge and give detailed status updates on prominent issues and upcoming content instead of keeping eveyone in the dark. Lastly, fix the games issues.

    EZ PZ if you know what you're doing.

    You’ve perfectly embodied the toxic behavior he was referring as to why the devs don’t post often and yet wonder why they continue to do as they do.

    What you call "toxicity" I call being patient long enough for this game to get its crap together and turn it-self around so the player pop doesn't die after a week when the new content gets dropped.

    Bugs, imbalance, tick-rate, server lag, and cheaters are all very prominent issues on nearly all platforms this game is available on.

    I swear if you reply with the common "it doesn't happen to me lol so that means it doesn't exist" excuse then I'm flipping the table dude.

    What on the Gods earth are you on about? That wasn’t toxic at all
  • Please give us warning before it comes @F8RGE I want to read it myself and not have spoilers.

    Not to mention that they announce stuff on twitter that they never do here, and we have to find out from some random poster who follows them, to screenshot it and post it here. Honestly, I assumed that was what this topic was actually about.

    Also, last I checked mods and community folks weren't writing code for the game. Funny how the devs can post on twitter but posting on their official forum seems to be too much effort.
