If they intended this game to go for the long haul they would actually care about the number of bugs they are introducing to the code.

Yes there are a few bugs that bother me not even close to enough to stop playing... or even to not have already pre-ordered the collectors edition... love the Iconic class by the way... just a minor toy really to keep me busy when I don't feel like playing my Monk though.
What bugs me most I think is the idea that you all ( Those that seem to find fault with a game but never anything worth much ) seem to think that a MMO should run as smooth as butter but have no idea what it means ... the very idea that ANY MMO I don't care what you THINK you know or what job you THINK you have... THERE IS NO MMO THAT RUNS BUG FREE>>>> NONE>>>>. MMOs are living things they must be fed... money... to keep moving... think that all those patches come without cost... sorry they do not.
So, the next time you see a bug and deside thats more time wasted on an expation and money that only goes to line the pockets of those mean dark sided Turbine owners... remember with out CONTENT!! this game doesn't get fixed in any way. Oh, and yes there will be more bugs with the new content... trust me there will be.... but at the same time they will prob also be doing alot of fixing.
By matter of fact, most games have 2-3 teams... one for bugs and 1-2 for content builds. Oh, but the dev over there should know this ... right? The idea that someone would get on the internet and lie is just beyond thinking... thats my lil trolling...
Have fun... or GET OUT.. hehe ;-p
I even gave him the chance to up his profit by asking "Do we need to rebuild the deck from the ground up, or can we reuse the existing joists and associated substructure?" Then I told him I was only interested in getting the job done right, and had no interest in a number of his competitors who had only been in business a few years. Hell, I practically invited him to over charge me.
You can learn a lot by giving someone enough rope to hang himself. He politely declined the opportunity.
I've hired a lot of people over the course of my life, both for my former employer, and to do contract work for me. I've been to the rodeo before.
As it turns out, the bid he gave me was for about 9 hours of my consulting time, but then I really make a point of charging my clients the maximum the market will bear.
We'll see what the next 2 guys have to say.
The economies of scale of the software business (which are the rules to which MMOs adhere) are different, but the consumer interaction expectations really are no different. Polite, knowledgeable, insightful and professional do not suddenly cease to apply. An MMO (like DDO) has a mass communication mechanism (the forums) to use to both understand the wants of its clients, and to project a positive image when interacting with them.
The fact is that Turbine (at least the DDO side of Turbine) is simply inept at communications. It builds what it wants to build, and at times seems to go out of its way to be rude to customers. The most entertaining email I ever received in my entire life was from a DDO forum moderator who essentially screamed at me in print. I've dealt with customers (both my own and my former employer's) for over 30 years. I have yet to actually scream at a customer. If I ever catch myself reaching that point, I will know it definitely has reached the point where I just need to call it a career.
A single source supplier of a product or service can get away with a lot. Turbine is not a single source supplier of anything of note. Turbine would be well advised to figure that out before WB runs out of patience.
When I had my other deck rebuilt a couple of years back, the contractor forgot to install the flashing where the deck meets the house. The cost of the flashing was just a couple of dollars, but it is a necessary item to prevent water leakage into the house.
I caught the mistake half way through construction, requested it be fixed, and got some mumbling about it not really being necessary (although it clearly is according to the local building code). I pulled out the contract, pointed at the section that specifically required adherence to the local building code, and suggested that we call the building code office to get an inspection.
Deck partially deconstructed, flashing installed, deck reconstructed, contractor paid, and the contractor file I keep for all contractors received a notation about the incident and the resolution.
Really, if you are having these kind of problems, the forum quip that applies is: You are doing it wrong.
