I frankly preferred if GOG got immediately banned in China
, so we'd be all free from their worldwide censorship..
With all the respect to your point of view, which I will say before anything else, I understand, this is utopic.
We barely started talking about the political reasons of why this happened in another thread and someone reminded me that focusing in Politics is forbidden.
But bear with me for a while.
Things involving the C_Country aren't dependant on GOG itself, as this involves greater political reasons far greater than company management, which are decisions made not only by "one head" in GOG headquarters, but many investors and %holders around the world, from many countries.
Im NOT defending GOG in this matter, Im actually trying to clarify the facts for people that may not know how company management works in practice and Im also not saying people around here doesn't know about this, but some may find this information usefull and may understand why Patias
is so empathetic about it.
It's hard. Believe it, it is. Many people involved and many carrers that may come to an end, which means, many families might get in harsh situations. Which, if we think, is happening right now in C_Country because of their internal policies, so let's think about this a little. That's why we shouldn't agree with their external policies of literally, in the end of the line, dominating every country through marketing and free market strategies.
Im new around here. Started focusing on GOG after an episode in Steam that made me start to hate DRM even more in a way I didn't before. It's a shame that, when I come to start buying games only here
all this mess is going on.
Maybe staying with the...
(...) "less worst".
...is better while we have it.
It's a sad situation - new user point of view - and I understand both, user dissatisfaction and company decisions alike. Whose, as masterfully explained by Patias
, still not the best communication decision, from client standpoint.
I hope (I really do) GOG come back in it's wrong decisions and decide, now, to be honest with it's consumers from here on out. (Even more honest, if it is being honest right now.)
