It’s a beta so one can assume that these features will be added in at some point. I do believe that there is an option to make the chat to ‘posse only’ to alleviate your other issue though.

But to not discourage others here, it’s not as bad as you and others make it out to be. It’s inevitable that you're going to get killed by other players that’s true, but PvP encounters do not automatically equate to griefing and from what the 10 hours I’ve played so far, it only happens when you provoke them.

But in your case, I would just pass for now and come back when they implement the features you want.

I would have spent a lot more time in the earlier chapters if I knew that Arthur would contract TB and become a hindrance for the 2nd half of the game.

I felt like at that point I decided to rush through the story in the hopes it would go away. But of course, he died, and I ended up playing as John instead. A character that I'm not particularly fond of. It annoyed me when they did it in RDR1 and it annoys me now.

The epilogue seems wholly unnecessary to me. Like really? Working at a farm after all that? Milking cows? Chasing bounties?

I liked the story, I liked what they tried to do, the message was clear, but it would have been better to remove the epilogue, continue as Arthur and treat it as non-canon.

I have usually have mine with a splash of milk and sweetener. Very simple.

Far Cry 5. I binged the game for a week or two, completed the story, and I was done... like don’t bring another one out for a few years done. I didn't even bother with any of the season pass content I bought or Far Cry 3. It was a long, drawn-out forgettable experience.

This is great work. Thanks! Let's hope the devs will take notice and implement this officially.

Yeah, I didn't use the white theme but this is something they should implement down the line. More options are good.

There's room for improvement. If there is one thing I would want in this new website, it would be more customisation on how a user wants information presented to them. If they give users an option to choose between a grid, list or carousels, that would be fab. An option to remove certain carousels from the homepage would also be great. This is just me saying I hate carousels.

@sethmode: I think your right in calling it out when it matters, I'm not familiar with the Guild Wars 2 controversy but when people get affected by it, go for it. But so far, nobody has and if that changes, then maybe we got a discussion here. Let Blizzard take the heat and see how they respond. If they respond by killing the game and letting staff go, then you got the case to be dissatisfied yourself.

@sethmode: All I'm saying is that people are making this into a bigger deal than it should be. And what could be done about it anyway? Those people won't go away, they won't stop being "entitled", and more importantly, Blizzard is going to squeeze the money out of them in the long run anyway. I'm sure Blizzard has gotten over it by now and will announce Diablo 4 in the next month or so with cheers and joy and everything will be back to where it was. People are wasting their time stirring up a whole load of nothing.

It’s easy to talk down on people as a bunch of "entitled gamers", I don’t agree with that. People are just disappointed and are showing their dissatisfaction with a company they love. I’m disappointed. I’m sure some have gone too far with it, but I'm going to take a good guess that's not the majority, let’s not make this a bigger deal than what it really is.
