And who cares if it was unprofessional? This isn't a profession. This is a hobby, that we take seriously.

There is a difference.

If you want to be taken seriously, you need to act in a manner that will be taken seriously. I think Blackthorne's been very professional through this, it's just your posts I take umbrage with.

You know why we don't have time to do good PR? We're too busy making a game.

Yes, I know that. Therefore, I repeat myself: If you don't have time to do good PR, wait until you do. It's not an insult, just a simple statement of thought.

Maybe if you were off creating games, you'd see why we get defensive about our games.

Which is why I said, if you put yourself in a position to get feedback from fans, you need to be able to have time to deal with any problems, because some fans will cause problems. If you don't have time to deal with those things, you should do your sanity a favor and keep your project under wraps until you do. Again, I'm not insulting you, just trying to make an observation.

You really could have just left it at Blackthorne's commentary at the start of this, and not reopened a fight.

Peace & Luv, Liz

Broomie: I didn't start things up again, Rambaldi did. I was responding to his post.

Not to mention there's been some issues with people writing posts while others were already posting, putting things a little out of place in some spots.

I never said I didn't have any faith in you guys. I simply took umbrage with Rambaldi's tone and attitude.

Peace & Luv, Liz

*pouts* I looked...I didn't see the free hotdogs  :'(

I, too, think the project looks awesome.  You guys are doing a great job.  Also, the members here have previously heard Say's complaints about nay-sayers.  Supposedly (I wouldn't know since I don't have the time to join the PR dept.) criticism has been harsh.  This can bog a person down, from what I've seen and heard.  I hope you guys keep up the quality of work that I've already seen from ya'll (yes, I'm Southern :P).  If ya'll are like the KQ9 team, you will not give us anything less than your best, even if it DOES take longer!

Can't wait!

We approach things differently. In the past, I've been professional. Read past posts on AGS Forums when people have "slammed" us. Or our boards. This FF8 guy rubbed me the wrong way, because, as I said above, I've seen too many fans lately demanding things.

You guys are in no position to demand things. Or be pessimistic. You're not doing anything. We're doing all the work. So stop complaining already!

You're not paying us. We're working for you, for free.

Actually, I think our PR was pretty good. We did a nice announcement on AGDI forums. Someone here posted an innocent link for you guys. Probably a fan and you decided to jump down his throat. And ours! For no reason!

Really? Honestly? I mean, you're continuing to fight with me, so I really doubt that sig.

I'm not sure what all those posts were about, so I'll just post what I was going to.


THANK YOU FOR TAKING IT UPON YOURSELVES, TO REMAKE QfG AND KQ3! :thumbsup:

EDIT: and thanks for getting all these people to stay on the forum(there haven't been as many people logged into the forum lately).

Jeysie, I took offense to FF8 guy's tone first and foremost. This was my team that I'm so proud to be a part of, so I get to criticize him however I want. And while I might have been harsh, you'll find nothing inaccurate in what I wrote.

Koko, about the hotdogs, it's a long running IA joke. I'm obssessed with hotdogs. Once I made a joke during a fight online with someone, "I'm sweaty and I need a hotdog" (long story short, there was a fight going on at our boards, and I came home from volleyball and was excited for hotdog team and I hat to respond to that message and that was how I ended it; the rest of it was professional)

Ok, I realise everyone was probably still writing their posts before I posted  :P, but I'll just remind everyone again.  Keep this conversation civil or it will be locked.


Well thank you for the warm welcome and I will try to stop by now and again (but to post about KQ9, not our own projects). I hope to see you guys over on our forums in the near future to give us updates as well.
Thanks for the invitation!  I'll keep your site in mind the next time we promot something. :D

I'm sure you guys can agree: while I might have been harsh, I think you've probably noticed -- as I had -- the amount of backlash from fans lately. Fans who are growing impatient and forgetting the hard work we're doing for THEM. And a lot of project developers -- such as myself -- are sick of it. Instead of criticizing, I'd rather see them put their effort into making a game. Instead of saying, oh, game projects always fall apart boo hoo hoo... why not make one yourself instead?
Trust me, I know exactly how it feels.  I've contacted Fatali personally as well to "hose it down a bit". XD  And I agree with your statement too which is why I don't usually take criticism personally unless I know it's from someone that can do it any better. :P  Most of the time, the critic can't.

Yonkey, glad to see how understanding you are. Not what I figured -- which was an unfortunate assumption on my part. Figured you'd yell at me and throw pickles (another LONG IA joke about pickles).

So please do take me up on the invitation. And any other KQ9 fans.

LOL!  Nah, I like pickles too much to throw them. ;P  But seriously, I've "been there, done that" and know what it's like to be on the other side of the fence at forums.  It's definitely not as glamorous as it seems.  ;-D

May I ask a question that I'm sure several people are wondering??

Gwydion is Alex's name before he knew he was a royal heir.  :P

You guys are in no position to demand things. Or be pessimistic. You're not doing anything. We're doing all the work. So stop complaining already!

I have read the posts you folks have made in AGDI, and I have read your forums. I didn't get to respond to Fatali's post before Blackthorne did, saying that I had heard of you folks, so I didn't see a need to add anything further in that regard.

Someone here posted an innocent link for you guys. Probably a fan and you decided to jump down his throat. And ours! For no reason!

I didn't jump down the poster's throat. I didn't jump down the throat of the question of the team's progress. I did jump down your throat for what I felt was a rude way to deal with criticism, especially when it came after Blackthorne and Fatali calling a truce. It might have simply been a case where other people posted while we were in the middle of writing our posts, so yours and mine posts ended up out of place. Happens.

As for continuing things... I just hate it when I feel like people are misreading me. I didn't make any demands for screenshots or progress. I didn't question credentials. All I said was that I felt Fatali was correct in feeling that the original link post was unprofessional-looking. I also said I thought that the tone of your post was rude, and didn't think it was a good image to put forth for your game.

I was in the middle of typing my post when Blackthorne stated he didn't know who that original poster was, and didn't have time to modify my post before more people reacted to it. And that's it, that's all I commented on. If we're all willing to calm down, then I no longer have anything to criticize. Just don't put words into my mouth I didn't say.
