That was a whirl winded read of ignorance lemme highlight a few 'winning notes' from that storm.
"Wait... So you speak for the fanbase... "
No. I speak in the sense that people wanting what has been taken out to be put back in are a smaller margin of people than is claimed to be represented here on these forums. I'm not saying it doesn't have critics there is just no way it consists of the vast majority of gamers who are already familiar with Phantasy Star in the past, which creates a large percentage of the user base, however im not pretending to speak for them I am just pointing this out.
"the majority of players would like it removed. This isn't opinion"
Haha ok, maybe by your count of user based posts on these forums but by no real means of a measure for those who don't participate on forums.
"As for me- I am holding off supporting the game.. ..because of the censorship."
I see this was very make or break for you.
"As a fan- you're going to play the game no matter what happens with the changes as is 100% of the active playerbase will still be playing the game. "
That's nice of you to presume.. If they removed the solid changes they made then it would be on the player base and I may or may not quit at that point if I feel the wrong players are making up a large percentage of my community experience among them within the game.
Here's another of my thoughts on the matter...
ARKS were sent here to protect children, not potentially portray them in combat or situations otherwise.
