Past year I have read hundreds and hundreds posts filled with complaints, rants, suspicion, threats, you name it. The reason: some aspect of MSFS2020 didn’t live up to expectations.
Since a few days @Jummivana has opened a thread to collect the most pressing questions for the next Q&A.
Which question sits on top?
“When will we have Cirrus clouds” with 165 votes, and counting.
Cirrus clouds? Is this really the single most important thing to add?
When we scroll down the list we get to see ATC, and weather, fair enough.
Again further down: hey: Ray tracing, dlss, lod. So visuals, visuals and more visuals.
But (and this is in no way because it happens to be my own contribution) a question about whether the sim will use all PC power again now the XBox has been released, which was the talk of the town since July 27th? A meager 55 votes.
Questions about IFR (the holy grail for ‘serious simmers), about the ‘unrealistic flight model’, the ‘inaccuracy’ of the planes, the update process. All aspects about which a large amount of negative and critical posts were written here. Hardly any votes.
What has a lot of votes? Questions regarding Asobo having to explain the beta testing (loaded question), having to ‘reassure’ the community on the future quality. Because that is what many seem to like. Nothing seems to satisfy more than a public reckoning on the (now digital) market place, it seems.
So my question is: where are you when you previously posted ‘I know how Asobo should do or improve their work’, ‘I know what is wrong’, ‘how could they put this on the market’, ‘they are only in it for my money’, and the usual other posts…
I don’t see you in this topic. To me this means that you are maybe only here to ventilate your negativity on this forum, but don’t want to put in the energy to be part of the solution. After seeing how the mentioned thread develops, namely mainly visual optimizations, I have difficulty taking a lot of negative posts here seriously anymore.
