I directly uninstalled the game. I deleted my postive reviews for your other games (Sorcere King and Fallen Enchantress) I deleted Star Control from my wishlist.
You lost a customer who pay for you games.
While I empathize with your concerns, a reaction that includes other games seems punitive - like others have noted (and true), it has consequences, on real people, that you can't know.
Stardock are damned if they do, damned if they don't.
Indeed, that is often the case. If the game crashes because they are playing on a map size that makes it prone to do so, they don't often blame their selection or specs, they blame the game.
That said, I think they should rightly say "Your computer can handle This Size Galaxy/This Many Opponents" etc. It's useful information. They should also allow players to over-ride their advice with a pop-up: "Do Not Bitch Online/To Stardock About Your Computer Slowing To A Crawl During This Game. We Will Ignore You If Not Outright Call You Stupid For Not Taking Our Good Advice" before the game begins.
Even with a prior warning, people would still complain (and perhaps use a poor review as a weapon) that it was the game and not their specs. That said, I have (and will continue to) advocated for it as it seems to round all the bases at least. I will again speak with the producer on such a prompt.
This post sums up exactly what is wrong with the review system that Steam uses.
Is GC3 a bad game because it protects people from crashes with map size restrictions? Of course not - but a collection of poor reviews just because of an issue of debatable significance (or without any context at all) will likely have some people assume it is. That is a shame.
Again, I am on 'Team warn' and will do what I can to see if it can be implemented.
Thanks for your feedback and support, guys - means a lot.
