now i respect that statement but i also disagree in some parts of my mind i just think building a vocal community before actually pushing out the game has big potential well also for drama... but its not about me....
one again i will remove this channel if told so!
In regards to building a community and server development. One year ago, the code was considered ready for a server as not many issues showed up in internal development test servers. Then a TC was made and players invited - those shook up quite some unexpected bugs that needed addressing. Were a live server started at that point, it would have resulted in massive issues.
Now the second part, about discord. Its direct interaction with the community resulted in too many developers spending time reading or addressing negativity or drama. Which in turn resulted in less time/motivation to work on the project. It was an experiment, some few people chose to make an issue out of it and waste development time, therefore community interaction was outsourced to the community.
You can find an array of discords in this thread. If you give yours a title/purpose I can add it too! https://forums.stellabellum.net/index.php/topic,32.0.html
