Yeah, seriously. Who takes 2 weeks after a games launch to tweak the game. Who do they think they are? Blizzard?

English lesson.

"Tweak" implies small changes
"Revamp" seriously..

One does not equal the other.

Overhauling these systems after 1 year - giving the game a new lease of life.

Overhauling these systems after 2 weeks - the game is a failure and the devs know.

Simple as this.

If you don't pay attention in beta (which was short and restricted to VERY few people), then you end up with a game like this. The same thing happened with AoC, and Tabula Rasa, and Warhammer Online. Short, restricted betas with devs that don't pay attention to those that find the bugs.

It's good to see that they're working on it - but I really don't understand how this is something that isn't brought up during beta.

Light on content? That's usually expected. A couple of missing features, maybe. But I find it hard to believe that they had to wait until reviews came out to realize that there are complaints about something as fundamental as shooting/driving mechanics.

A thousand times this.

Oh, it was definitely brought up. Again and again and again. They just didn't do anything with it, and rather than delay the game and fix the problems, they chose to release on schedule, even though they knew they would get lower review scores.

From what I heard much of this was complained about in beta and done nothing about. Now that the game is not living up to sales expectations they are rushing things out. Why have beta testers if you ignore their points?

The high system requirements for such a simplistic game certainly don't help the game's sales. They should get a boost to population when the game goes F2P though.

The requirements are very high by MMO standards.

The graphics and customization options are even higher by MMO standards.

I'm really getting tired of companies that charge for a game that is still in beta. I was really ready to buy this on launch but after the Key to the City event I decided to save my money since it felt like it was still not done. If I get the game as a gift, I will probably play it, but they won't see any money from me now.

Jef Reheard where do you get the impression of an OVERHAUL? They're just examining the combat for now, and there are no changes promised or even mentioned yet.

All they are doing to the vehicles is making them grip a little better. Sounds like a tweak, not an overhaul.

The only thing that they're hopefully overhauling is the match making.

From the first post on the thread you linked:

"We''re already underway on a major overhaul to vehicle handling to make cars more responsive and less slippy overall. You''ll still be able to power slide around corners in stylish fashion, but steering is more responsive overall and easier to get the hang of early on."

Because MMOs never patch. Ever. And if they do patch, its because they're in beta.
