Firstly I want to start by saying I generally distance myself from this sub-reddit hard. There are lots of haters here, but I think its fair that I should share my story.
I generally read reddit purely as a research for future content. Either if it be to understand game mechanics, guides that need to be made or just somethings that sounds fun to me. That's about as far as I go with this reddit. I don't comment, I don't contribute.
I know you guys like to slam streamers / content creators, including myself when a change happens that you don't like. You guys see barely anything that I actually do besides the YT/Twitch side of things.
Firstly I report every single bug that gets sent to me via discord. This could be potentially 50 a day sometimes (generally straight after a wipe) and then down to 1-5 a day around now. I also vet these for ones that have previously been sent so i'm not wasting his time.
As I am one of the first people to complete all major content in the game I find majority of the bug issues with new content and I give detailed reporting on what the bugs are and what from my gamer perspective I think the cause is (i'm not a dev i'm purely just a gamer), so you never have to encounter them.
I actively consider all major choke points in the game that I tend to put excessive amounts of hours into and suggest ways that could be included to help the average player progress in the game. These include nearly every single hideout crafting addition you've seen in the game this wipe minus a couple Nikita did on top as the tasks would be so frustrating for players that I believe it would be unrealistic to think someone without putting 10+ hours into a single task may never complete. (perfect example is virtex, RFID, VPX etc.)
A large amount of exploits get reported to me that I immediately send through to avoid it ruining the game as we've seen in the past like ways to fall through the floor, glitch guns, dupes and most recently being able to manipulate items to become FIR that aren't.
Also I know there would be a fair share of people who would rather headbutt their keyboard than look at my content, that's fair! But if you've used the wiki, you've most likely seen multiple screenshots each time you go there from me. I work along with the Wiki guys to help get the content up to date as soon as possible.
Now I know there is a lot of I's in this but this is just what I do, there are so many other content creators and streamers who do more. They Sherpa, they make amazing guides, they find bugs and do analytical analysis on them and on top of that they hold a community themselves which in itself helps grow the player base and increases longevity of the game.
As for my "privilege" of having a direct line with Nikita, I welcome you to commit 100 hours a week of your life for nearly 3 years to a game that you are just about as passionate about as the devs. I love this game, I only want it to succeed and I deliberately try and force myself to see all perspectives believe it or not. But at the end of the day, we are all on the same team, Loves of EFT, and we just want to have fun!
I'll finish with, Keep the hatred in raids and not towards each other, content creators and devs. Take out that frustration on some cheeki breeki's!
TLDR: We are all a community. Stop hating on everyone and have fun playing.
This site only for you and only just for fun. For you, who love fun and laughter.
