Deffending DDO Community member Inexion posted his concerns recently that DDO could be a disappointment. He quoted several sources (apparently community members) from EBGames, IGN, and Joystiq.com. Many DDO forum members came to the defense of the game, including a few who certainly wanted to say more but couldn't because of the NDA (non-disclosure agreement) beta testers must sign.
Dev Victor "Sporkfire" Wachter came to the defense of DDO without getting defensive:
From my perspective, feedback like that is to be expected - particularly when there are lots of good things said over on the EBGames review page. Balance in all things and whatnot...
Since I work here, I obviously think we have an awesome game coming out in a few months. What makes it awesome is that it's substantially different from most games on the market right now. That basically means that not everyone will get what we are wanting to do here. Hopefully, we'll be able to help them get it sometime soon.
We're working with a license that means a lot of things to a lot of people. We're making a very authentic D&D game, but some people like their authenticity in different places than the ones we have focused on. We'd love to please everyone, but that's pretty much impossible.
Basically, have faith. There will be people of differing opinions, and they are entitled to it. But we hope you'll give us a chance to win you over with what we finally deliver.
