But now if you compare what Raiden did in few months to other dev, i think the map is in good hands. He cleaned a lot of things, decreased considerably the lags.
That's what I'm challenging here, I may have bias because of how he behaved towards me on a simple matter and showed no remorse or apology, but I am trying to move beyond that by present my points with reason and critical thought.
So how much is a bunch of time?
If I look at the changelog, in contrast to what others requested vs what they request now, little has changed. After working with other devs such as relic, and consulted with vince/kontz, I can say that many of these changes are things that take relatively little time to implement but require lots of testing and reworking after the fact. So...where is the reworks? Where is the interaction with the community to get feedback needed to adjust? Why does it require months and months to do instead of days or even weeks? If you're saying he is working hard behind the scenes, is this the best of the work?
Also saying he has done something and have it be better than other devs, to me is comparing a limp to a crawl, remember thom left for well over a year no? Of course any change can be construed as "better"
I saw the same thing happen before in developers who are just not interested in developing, who see it as a side project and alienating the fans with unreasonable balances that take too long to fix, and by then if something else is broken we wait longer again. I believe if you're going to do something you should do it.
I would like to see a middle ground, but so far it feels like we are made to adjust to the pace that is given, and deal with it. It shows no give to the development side or interest in meeting of the minds. And guys, please stop bringing up things like democracy, those systems have checks and balances, this is a community that is thumbed under the whims of a developer, and the hopes that they're willing to put time into development. It's the furthest from democracy you can get.
