My issues with the 'The War Z' and Hammerpoint
These guys at Hammerpoint have to be the most unprofessional and inexperienced developers that I have ever had the displeasure of dealing with.
Despite all the bad press surrounding the blatant lies that were contained in the game's description on Steam, I decided to not jump to any conclusions and gave the game a fair chance. After all, I had already bought the game before it was removed from the store, and I really enjoyed the feeling of terror and suspense while playing.
Fast forward a few months and several pacthes later, and all I can say is that this game some how manages to get worse as time goes on. Each new patch will fix one or two problems, and break five more things at the same time. And dont even get me started about all the so called 'hackers' and cheaters that plague the servers on a daily basis with their Aimbot and ESP cheats.
The game and its forum have been attacked by 'hackers' several times, and the old forum had to be taken down for over a week due to a security breach that exposed all of the users log in information. Now the game has a new forum and things arent much different than it was the last time.
The moderators regularly delete threads and posts that they dont agree with or if it has something negative to say about the game. When I had first heard of these things happening on the forum, I had a hard time believeing some of these stories. However, now I have experienced it first hand, and I think that its absurd that these communist ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s are allowed to get away with this kind stuff.
Let me explain my story a little better:
Mr. Sergey Titov, the main ♥♥♥♥♥ in charge at Hammerpoint, started a poll in a thread on the forum asking the community if they should allow 'hackers' and cheaters to continue playing the game by giving them special 'Jail' servers to play on, instead of banning them from playing ever again. I felt that merely asking such a ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ question was a slap in the face to myself and many other legitimate players who do not cheat or use hacks. The fact that they would even entertain this kind of idea just goes to show that these guys dont care about the honest, loyal customers that bought their half ♥♥♥♥♥ excuse for a 'game' and makes it look like they are pandering to the large community of cheaters that this 'game' has attracted.
The thread with the poll was initially locked to comments, so I started a seperate thread titled 'Is this guy serious?' to discuss the topic with other members of the fourm.After just a few short hours the thread had become a 'hot' discussion and had hundreds of comments stating an overall dislike of this idea.
A day later, I log into the forum and my thread has disapeared, leaving no trace behind. So I search all over the forum to see if I can find any trace of the thread, and find nothing. There were no warnings given, no reasons given, not even a notice to say "we moved the discussion to another thread" or anything of the sort. So these scam artists just deleted the whole thing, because they didnt want people to talk about it.
This got me so pissed off that I decided to call these ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s out on what they had done to me, and expose them for the kind of people that they are. So I made a thread titled 'My threads are being deleted' and waited to see what would happen. Well guess what these ♥♥♥♥ bags at Hammerpoint did. They banned me from using the forum and deleted all of my threads and posts. I did not break any forum rules, make any threats or use any foul language in my threads on their forum. So why did it get deleted and why was I banned?
I'm glad to see that these foreign companies are allowed to take our money, falsely advertise their product, treat their customers like ♥♥♥♥, and then hide the truth about their crappy product by filtering the forums of any negative posts. They must not teach a 'business ethics' course at business schools in Soviet Russia, because these guys obviously dont know how treat their customers.
I really tried hard to like this 'game' and at first I thought that it had so much potential, but I can no longer support this poor excuse for a company and its shady, money grabbing, cheater harboring ways. I urge all of you to ban Hammerpoint's game or at least refrain from spending money on their scam of a marketplace (the only place you can get ammo these days). Don't buy GC or rent servers from these criminals, because they dont care about you or the game. They will abandon this 'game' just like they did with 'War, inc.' once they have milked it for all that its worth.
