Please stop trying to blame your dissatisfaction with our release timing of one feature on theory crafting utter nonsense to do with our work environment, its honestly quite insulting to try and tie these unrelated things together, we're the ones who are actually here so you'd think if you care that much about our work environment you'd be a bit compassionate to our workers.Hopefully. It's the one-year anniversary of the game (in fact, the thirteen month mark, but evidently the dev team wants us to think of it as just a year), and the issue is in exactly the same place it was at launch, after more-or-less recovering from a backslide halfway through. I can understand how Covid slowed things down, but with reports of gender discrimination and general mistreatment coming out of the company, with the unions saying the complaints are valid, I can't help but think there's a lot of deeper problems at Paradox, and wonder if the low priority they've evidently been giving this issue is a symptom.
I hope they can get this sorted out for the benefit of everyone who's still playing, but it's probably too late for me -- they've lost me as a customer unless I hear of major reforms in the company and the unions give them the all clear.
A lot of our team is in our unions including multiple of our actual union representatives. Trying to tie this together belittles their hard work of doing these surveys and tries to paint our team as being anti-LBGT which couldn't be further from the truth of what we feel especially given that our team has plenty of LGBT+ people in it.
Like we've said already in this thread the feature will be released in 1.5 it is purely a matter of time. And as I explained before we cannot just excise certain features and try to retroactively make unplanned patches with them spliced in without adding further difficulty to the team.
You are free to not be happy with the time a release takes and even not play the game again by the time it does come out. But belittling the efforts of our union reps or trying to snidely make accusations about our team (again I might add as you've done this plenty) is not something we are going to sit here and accept.
And to comments like this you're just outing yourself to get moderators infracting you for such intolerant and un-inclusive behaviour, don't try to speak for us especially with such incorrect statements that go counter to what we've already said numerous times are our views.[comment removed by admin for violating the forum rules]
