I think we should all take a second to, instead of complain about small bugs and little glitches, or some multiplayer issues that we know Stardock will fix, lets take a second to look at how involved Stardock as a company became at the first sign of the multiplayer catastrophe. I personally can not say it enough how impressed I am with the way this company is run. I mean to be honest, Frogboy and his crew where online for about 16 hours yesterday if not more, working on fixes for the multiplayer issues, AND keeping us informed as to the status of it all.
What other company can you name, that on their games release day, where online talking to its users and letting them know the issues and the way they were working on them? I can't think of any. Blizzard just fixes their games these days and posts some sort of generic information log 3 or 4 days after the problem, and Blizzard is a excellent company... EA Games is horrific when it comes to insta-customer relations. And the big one at the moment is EPIC Games, whom released a game (with War 2 at the end) that is borderline a bug/glitch fest with a HIGHLY unenjoyable mutiplayer, that they STILL have not addressed the issues of the fans... Stardock listens to its fans with an anxious ear, and I think that this is so important that I had to post this because it shouldnt go unnoticed.
I know most of the "regular" or "frequents" in our IRC Chat already know how awesome this company is. But I see a lot of new users jumping on, with the typical ranting about how the games broken and this is unreal, blah blah blah. Thats what this post is for, I hope they all read it and realize Stardock is doing the RIGHT thing, while fixing their game. So before the next person logs in and starts ranting about problems, instead, inform someone of the problem either by forum post or IRC chat, and move on, because if this release day is any indication as to the dedication and determination of Stardock as a whole, I really think we have nothing to worry about, and the game will flourish!
Keep up the good work guys, I know I have recommended this game to a lot of my friends, or just about anyone looking for a new PC Game on other forums, not only because its an awesome game, but because the service rendered by this company is something that is VERY hard to find these days.
