Total War Warhammer 3 creator has finally responded to the negative criticism that it received from unsatisfied players. In a detailed post made on its Steam page, the company threatened to block or remove such players.
The post became necessary following a collaboration between the Total War Warhammer 3 community players who started voicing their concerns. Players were upset about the increase in gameplay prices since the game DLC for Shadows of Change. Players then made unpopular recommendndations including a Steam boycott.
After weeks of player uproar, Creative Assembly has decided to implement forum moderation. The studio made it absolutely clear that it was not tolerant of players who chose to make disruptive comments. The post highyed the problems created by such intrusion abd stated its preparedness to ban players found guilty.
The post laid down its rule again and warned players to stay clear of negative criticism, or else! It said:
- Clear attempts to derail constructive conversation: players that don’t enter Total War Warhammer 3 debates with empathy and instead behave inappropriately.
- Responses aimed at undermining other players’ enjoyment: You can criticize the game and post about your problems with it, but you can’t criticize another player for simply liking TWW3.
- Doomsaying, calls for boycotts, spreading misinformation: “contribute nothing to our community, and will result in our moderation teams stepping in to remove the content or individuals from the forums.”
- Calls for new Total War games: comparisons to TWW3 can be made, but everything needs to be about commentary for that game and not new ones.
The closes the post with a clever reminder to players that it is always better to keep quiet when you only hold the balade of the sword.
“The right to discuss is a privilege—it is not an entitlement you earn by playing the game—and in our official spaces, we will prioritize the ability of those who demonstrate that they can converse and disagree thoughtfully, constructively, and inclusively over those who aim to disrupt, derail, and diminish those contributions.”
