Defending your ideas and reputation isn't the same as caring about users opinions about not wanting the subscription model. Don't confuse the two. Your just defending your ideas. What have you actually done to solve the problem? Nothing so far. We either pay it or we don't. Bottom line. If you really cared, you would change it. Saying you're waiting for the response the silent majority of your user base just strengthens my point. You'll only care if it effects your profits.
OK, so it's still to be seen if the model we picked will be viable/accepted by our wider customer base.
You're just reiterating the point I already made. Why respond with a quote just to say the same thing?
OK, so now we're ignoring logic common sense and the model won't work?
Can you clarify what your position exactly is?
You misunderstand. I said no amount of reason or logic will change your minds on this topic. So far, I am completely right. You haven't changed a thing.
What your actually asking is for us to change the model to your demands - what you're saying you're asking for is to us to listen. We are listening. We're reading everything. We're not changing our model unless there's a dramatic need to do so.
I'm not saying you are not reading these comments. I'm saying you don't care about those people who don't like your subscription model, because you are not doing anything about it. You are specifically saying that you are not changing your model unless there's a dramatic change. I don't understand why it's so confusing to you. It's very clear to me.
I'm just baffled how you could come away with this view after both Tom and I have put so much time and energy in to explaining our position and our concerns with the proposed alternatives.
Defending your position and ideas is caring about you, and it's not the same as caring about those who don't share the same views. You're not even willing to compromise and change the yearly subscription to something more reasonable like a monthly subscription. And before you say it, telling us you are thinking about it isn't the same as actually doing it. Again, I'm making a distinction there. Actions speak louder than words.
There´s a huge difference between caring about someones opinions and accepting these opinions. All I can hear is "Wahh wahh why don´t you cater to my needs?!?!?11"
Your entire comment is basically you crying about people complaining about the subscription model. I suppose the irony is lost on you.
And for all the hobbyists (as myself) who cry that it´s too expensive... It´s not.
Well, yeah... Good logic there, and no arguments here. I didn't say it was too expensive.
If you go to the cinema 3 times a year that´s roughly 30€ for ~6 hours, so 5$ per hour. It´s literally more expensive than using your construct subscription 1/365 of the available time. (And I haven´t even factored in popcorn & drink)
Now you're logic isn't so good. Renting tools so you can work hard to make entertainment, isn't the same thing as paying to consume entertainment. Apples and Oranges. Just because someone is willing to pay to watch a movie, doesn't mean they should be willing to pay for subscription to a HTML5 game engine. I get your point you're trying to reach though, that it's cheap, but you need to come up with some better logic. Especially when a lot of people are saying it's not really the price they are having an issue with. A subscription model takes all the security away from the consumer and gives it to the company. That's the issue. Work with that.
And while going to the cinema is fun, using Construct is fun AND........... constructive. *badumm tsshhh* (I ain´t even sorry for this one )
