sigafooValve has shown themselves to work with the comp community through adding a comp matchmaking into the game. Changing the system to have placement matches and most importantly balancing weapons seemingly with the focus of Comp in mind.
haha yeah it was really cool when they left it in beta for 6 months and made no tangible changes prior to the "release" despite a mountain of feedback regarding placement matches, graphics settings, etc. really cool to launch into matchmaking and go from a stable 200 fps to fluctuating between 40 and 80! really cool that it took them a week after mym to fix zoom_sensitivity_ratio being disallowed in comp despite knowing it was an issue throughout the beta! really cool they ignored all the feedback they got in favour of making 0 changes and releasing it in the same state they released the beta in!
hey yeah, cool, placement matches! 20 months after the release and more than 2 years after the start of the beta, when they were told they need placement matches! they added those a year ago next month, for anybody keeping track. that means that by the end of the year we might have one more minor improvement to the dead gamemode that nobody wants to play because valve has consistently failed to address the many underlying issues with it! really cool, can't wait!
sigafooThey've made strides to help out the comp community, but we as a community haven't done anything but dismiss them.
gosh, i wonder why! that's really weird! that we'd ignore a dev that does so much! for us! and always addresses the problems we bring up! they're so good! to us! it's crazy that we'd be dismissive of them!
