I mean what did they think was going to happen? People demanding to know when can they pre-order it? Especially considering the MiG-21 isn’t exactly in tip top shape, of course people would be upset. RAZBAM was in a pretty similar situation, and laid the groundwork going forward for how to handle it. The only reason people aren’t at RAZBAM’s throat is:
A) The harrier is badass
B) They released a major M2k update
And lets be honest, ED received a pretty chilly response to their “strange” bird, only difference is that they basically said, “Hey, we already made this for someone else, thought you guys might like it”. Not, “OMGWTFBBQ you guys wont believe what we have in store for you!!!”
Its all comedy to me, I enjoy watching people get worked up over video games.
