MYM Was Review Bombed?
Apparently this happened all the way back in April before the update, back when the game had a lot of issues.
I was completely unaware that this had happened until a friend brought it to my attention, and while the developers did listen to the feedback from the community, part of me wonders if it may have been too late?
My friend said that the game lost a huge amount of players, on Steam at least, during that time, and that a lot of momentum the game had was lost. I do partly agree with them, but MYM was free with PS+ awhile back, so the game does have a strong console playerbase.
I do think, at the very least, with the game having such low amount of content, it would be better to charge $15-20 USD for the game, since it might give people more incentive to buy the game post-launch, since $30 USD ($40 USD for Deluxe Edition) seem a bit too much with the current state of the game.
I also think doing stuff like community events could help as well; 2x Synthite events or 2x XP events. Maybe even have challenges to complete for cosmetics or something, community challenges as well. The developers really need to find a way to keep players engaged with their game.
I know Sector 1 comes out in June, but we really just need something to keep players, since community made maps to raid is nice, but it can only last so long with such limited tools we have. For the long run, BHVR needs to have a plan to bring players back to the game and give them a reason to play.
