    We'll do some stuff and try some experiments in beta that will seem very stupid and crazy. And they just may be. Old-time testers of SMITE can probably relay some of the insane stuff we did during that beta.

    But sometimes these experiments help us learn things about our game that are really important and inform future design. When we run a bad experiment, we will work hard to fix it up as quickly as we can!"

    It's true that when you're in a beta you can experiment and try new things, and those things can end up with good or bad results, but maybe it's a bad idea to rush a new patch which many people find it horrible in many ways. I don't know how was the welcome to the other updates because I'm playing since ob63, but this one is causing a chaos.

    "When we run a bad experiment, we will work hard to fix it up as quickly as we can!" For the things I've read it feels like they updated paladins without "fixing" the problems people who played the pts reported. I don't really know why they rushed so much, I don't want to judge without being informed, but seeing how they're doing the things they're doing it's like they'll end up having the snowball effect, people will get angrier, there will be more bugs apart from the existing ones, and it will be harder to fix everything.

    funny fact ( pretty sad) even the chinese don't like what hi rez is doing... immagine how bad the situation is XD
    Lie to your playbase is the best way for killing it, hide the reason is the same because you keep the truth hide from the player.
    the best way to end this and don't lose more fanbase is to say the truth, sound weird but being honest is actually better, just say why the OB64 NEED to come out already, if is for an other reasone from pure greedy, maybe people will take it less badly?

    When we run a bad experiment, we will work hard to fix it up as quickly as we can!

    Principle #8: Use data and stats religously to mine insights on player behavior.

    We will read the forums and the Reddit and the user surveys religiously and shape a lot of the game around the feedback we see.

    Principle #10: Make money, but do so in a fair way that respects your community.

    We are extremely strong believers that Free to Play is a fantastic business model for gaming. But it needs to be done in a fair way that isn't "Pay to Win." That's harder to achieve than you may think, and bear with us as we balance the game around that philosophy. But I think people that have been with us for a while know that we work hard to build fair systems for our players and hugely respect the experience of players that never pay us a dime.
    At least these principles you violated released patch OB64, and do not want to return to patch 63.
    Do you think someone can respect a company that violated its own principles?

    I haven't really investigated how the Chinese players responded to this P2W madness. Do you have any sources you can post?

    I doubt that chinese players are that much different in that case. They don't want to get fooled as well.
