Anthem had far from a great perfect launch, and with performance issues and ongoing balance, BioWare is under intensive pressure to smooth things out. And that is no better demonstrated than on social media forum called Reddit, where a long list of grievances was published yesterday by a user named harishcs, ostensibly on behalf of the whole community. The post touched on all the biggest issues related with the game, in addition to criticizing BioWare for a perceived lack of post-launch interaction and communication.
Global Community Manager Jesse Anderson of Anthem later weighed in with a response on behalf of BioWare company, and it addressed point-by-point most of the issues of the original post. On the topic of a perceived decline in game developer interaction on the subreddit since the launch of the game, Anderson had this to say:
“To start, things used to be a lot similar and friendlier here for developer team members who normally do not talk on forums or social channels,” he wrote. “They could answer questions, give required information and know that they are not going to have people getting quite upset at them. Why would a developer team member take time away from working on the next coming update to post when they know it is likely to be met with familiar hostile replies, or they get flamed because they cannot answer other questions that players are continuously asking?”
