Every update you make means a lower percentage of games I can actually play.  What a waste of money.  What the hell kind of testing do you do???  Are you a bunch of kids in a garage???  Do you have a process?? regression testing??  testing???  Any of this??

 

Hello?????

Alots of games fails but i don't know if its just a coincidence but the games feels less choppy in MP now.

 

I don't know whats so unique about demigod to prevent it from having a working p2p system like tons of games but anyway the last thing i want is the developpers/publishers abandonning the boat

it would be better if they did abandon it, as they been steadily making it worse by trying to use a multipayer system that clearly wont work, and im guessing they dont want to move to a functional system like battle.net because it would require them to set up servers to do the hosting, and that would cost them money, p2p is the cheapest way to do it because all the bandwidth consumed is on the customer end

We have set up a series of servers. That's what this week's updates have been doing.

Yeah. Right. I agree with the OP. Please stop trying to make the game better for us. We would rather have a poor game. No updates! In fact... please roll us all back to the very first stable alpha build that you have laying around. No fixes!

 

 

Weirdos.

I think the op is referring to the last 2 updates, they have made the connection problems worse for a lot of people, including me.  The game was working much better before.  Still hoping they will get this fixed soon.

While making the playing experience worse for those who WERE able to play is a bad thing, keep in mind theres a ton of people who cant even connect to a game, or get in a game and spike up to 1K+ pings.

Whatever the OP's intention was, I'm pretty sure there are much more civil ways to express his concerns. Yet another abuser of internet annonymity.

Annonymity?  You don't think they know my ip, name the game is registered under, and game reg code?  There is nothing anonomous about posting here.  And my point is valid, every time there is an update to the game, my ability to connect goes down (as well as many others).  It would be better to not put out a patch that makes it worse for people.
