I think you are the one who should be ashamed for wasting your money without doing some research first and then blaming others for it. Before I buy something I always look if it's good. And if I still somehow manage to be disappointed I blame myself for not doing more research. It's way easier to blame others though.I would say TW with their stupidity drove away most future sales. I certainly tell my friends not to buy the game especially in its current form. TW seems very arrogant and just shoots down people's very good ideas (in my view) they rarely if ever get on steam forums to address posts there... you know STEAM probably the biggest reason they have as many sales as they do.
Lack of communication, arrogant communication when communication happens at all, slow as hell real content updates, constantly creating new bugs/crashes/issues when "fixing" current bugs/crashes/issues. Just one of the most terrible dev teams in recent memory.
I never played any of the other Mount and Blade games, had never heard of them but when I found this game and all the people praising the devs because of the other games I thought I will for the first time pay FULL NEW GAME price for an EA game. Yeah last time I do that. TW should be ashamed.
I remember buying Dragons Dogma which was a complete waste of money. Didn't go to their forums to insult them though, in fact I don't even know if they have a forum.
