I don't know if anyone has been over to the Star Ruler forum lately. How ever there is some DW bashing going on.

I don't agree with the bashing's of DW or Star Ruler. Both games have flaws but over time i am sure these will be fixed and have the potential to be a great games.

The developers of both games deserve and need our support. With out these developers we wouldn't have these type of games. We would then have to put up with the likes of EA who would never ever consider making a space game.

After reading that, I got a feeling:



Sounded to me that some of those people hadn't even tried DW. Also, bashing 2D battles! Yeah, Right. And Star Control 2s super melee is rubbish too? Grow up.
I haven't tried Star Ruler but I definetly won't be bashing it because it doesn't strike my fancy. Honestly it looks interesting and I might try it out someday if possible.
Blind hate is one of the things that are just wrong in this world.

Also, agreed with the supporting smaller companies. EA and the like can manage on their own, but smaller gaming companies need the support of the people.

PS. I LOVE the "voyage" from Star Ruler soundtrack.

I agree with J HG T, some people won't try something different because they're perfectly happy with what they have. However, us DW players have the ability to try the Star Ruler demo, whereas the SR players don't have that option. I'm not defending the bashers, they shouldn't comment on something they don't understand.

I tried the Star Ruler demo. I couldn't play the tutorial because my ships wouldn't obey my commands. The part where it tells you to force fire on your planet and then cancel the order, well it wouldn't stop firing after I tried everything, I gave up. So I only really played for about half an hour.

It shows promise, but I'm surprised there's any comparison to DW which is far more polished and has already found 'The Right Formula' in my opinion. I also find that good 2D graphics are better than average 3D graphics.

The games don't even compare at this point. SR is still in alpha form IMO.

And I own both. I bought SR on the day it was released.

It has been my experience that people who bash often do so in such a way that you cannot even communicate intelligently with them.
Most of the folks in this forum that I have seen usually at least have something to back their views... and everyone, praise God, is polite. It is one of the reasons I like this game.

Most people who bash in that way have the mental development of a 2 year old anyway...

Well, that's just the way the internet is. Let's not return the favor and bash SR here though, I've also always appreciated the maturity of our community and we have a good relationship with the SR team.

Regards,

- Erik

No worries Erik. I've never been into fighting over apples and oranges myself. I respect and try to understand peoples opinions, no matter how much they differ from mine. Fighting over matter of tastes is just not my thing.

I certainly wouldn't call a lot of that bashing. Some criticism perhaps, and perhaps one or two of the guys who commented hadn't played the game.
But anyway I decided to point out a few of the more positive aspect of Distant Worlds.
If people are going to criticise the game, they at least need to be pointed towards its stongest points too. Which in my opinion are the resources and the whole civilian sector, as neither have ever been done as far as I know.

But I like parts from both games. There are things that Star Ruler does that distant worlds will never do, and vice versa.

Hating this game wont make their game any better.

I've been a beta tester of Star Ruler. Basically, they needed the money, to continue developing it. That's why they released it in an 'alpha' state. They will continue to improve it for the coming 1 to 2 years though.

Also, both games have their own qualities. While Distant Worlds was polished right from the start, Star Ruler can adapt to the new realities more easily. I don't think bashing any game is good. For example: I hate WoW myself, but I can understand why people like it. I won't bash it.

One important lesson about the internet which you should always remember: Don't feed the trolls ;)

I can kind of relate to that, I suppose I dont hate the game, as I have never played it so that would be unfair, however I simply dont understand the appeal from what I have read.


Ooooh Harold Coffin quotes...

I don't believe anyone has actually taken the moment to read the thread, it is no different than any other thread on the internet discussing video games; right now this thread seems so way overblown that it casts a negative shadow upon the DW forum itself.  Right now it seems that this thread is hypocritical ( Don't bash back, but their game does suck....), and truly this thread should never have been created in the first place; you don't see a thread on the Star Ruler forums directly bashing DW, do you?

Understand that there are fans of both games on both forums, and both games have their flaws as well as being amazing; if a person finds a flaw with the game, they shall make it known in order to improve their game or another.

BTW: I own both games and love them both as well as lurk on both forums , but I just found this thread to be absolutely ridiculous as I would if it's clone was on Star Ruler.

We concur. Honestly, this thread should just be closed to prevent any more unnecessary aggression or unintented provocation. Let's just enjoy whatever games we like and shut up.
