    Nobody. It seems that Devs act on their personal emotions.

    Xenos got 5 combat queen in a row and they all died, but managed to win the game? Devs: implement young queen mechanic.

    Other dev: you implemented young queen mechanic? Muh, I will revenge nerf. Implement order 66, unlimiter larvas. Reason...revenge...I mean no. Marines lost planet? Doesn't deserve a last change of intense fight. Make them ghost or cyro.

    Instead of acting on their emotions devs should ask us questions: "is it fun?" or "Do you like the changes?"

    Of course 95% would reply, they HATE it. But it will be still kept for "balance" reasons. When was the last time time you really had fun playing CM?

    Devs don't rely on the community because the community has 60 different opinions on every single topic, majority of them being absolutely dogshit.
    You will get nowhere by asking 400 people if something's fun because 370 of them shouldn't even be allowed to vote for various reasons in the first place.

    Stop whining and flipping your middle fingers towards the devs, CM is open source, either make your own contribution or provide some actual constructive criticism otherwise you're getting nowhere and joining the dogshit opinion gang.

    or alternatively, go to TGCM if you like it so much.

    Honestly it's kinda unfair to judge a mechanic that hasn't even been implemented yet, but I don't see why SD was removed if the new thing wasn't ready.

    People complained about SD, and it was removed because the minority is the majority/vice versa (according to the dev team). SD needed a remap and that's really it.



    Also on something somewhat related, devs often just leave features unfinished or incomplete because...?
    how did he get CO?

    Because whoever still unironically uses cm forums in 2021 either doesn't habe a discord account or are banned from cm discord and as such are completely disconnected from the current goings-on in CM.
    Literally who is this dude? Who does he play??

    Yea, the only problem with SD is the map itself, it is surrounded by 2x2 hallways with 1x1 maintenance access with a huge Engineering Department to block your middle. You just need to widen the hallways and do some modifications here and there and you are done.

    There was a guy who did the map and proposed it and then lifeboats came...guess...uh
