My friend is in the hospital.
It’s bad… might die, and even if everything goes well, might never be the same again.
There was an accident. Things got out of control. Things didn’t go as planned.
My friend was injured and so many things were wrong that they didn’t know how to proceed.
I’d like to know how my friend is doing, considering I paid the hospital bills so far.
But the Doctors only talk behind closed doors, afraid to tell me what is going on.
For fear i won’t understand. For fear that I will hold them to ridiculous demands and timelines.
What the Doctors don’t understand, is that I just care for my Friend. I want my friend to get better.
That is my priority. That is my concern. I fear for the life and well being of my friend.
Therefore I want to know what is going on, I want to know what surgery is planned and how and when.
I want to know the battleplan for getting my friend back on their feet.
I want to understand how we progress from here.
I mean, i did pay for the bills. I deserve to know what treatment I paid for.
But alas, the Doctors ask me to “trust them” and that information will be given “at the right time”.
But I’ve never dealt with these doctors before.
I have no history with them. They have earned no trust from me
and at this point, it almost feels like i’m at some shady back alley hospital,
where the well being of the patient isn’t the concern and they just want my money.
I didn’t really think this way until the Doctors suggested that while i wait for news, that i visit their gift shop.
Where i can buy funny toys and interesting clothes. But none of these things help my friend out.
They just distract from the actual issues that need to be dealt with, the life threatening ones.
I just don’t understand why the Devs, oops i mean doctors
don’t understand that I want this game to do well, i mean for my friend to get better.
oh well ok FINE
My friend is actually Battleborn
and i paid my $75 so tell me what my medical plan is already, i mean battleplan
and i AM NOT VISITING YOUR GIFT SHOP
my friend is in intensive care, you CANNOT distract me with skins and taunts…
… maybe after some bugs are fixed i’ll take a look.
the point is, if this story was true, about a friend and some shady doctors
would you be ok with just waiting as your friend died?
or would you ask questions, demand answers? Like our community has done.
Would you be angry if it was suggested you check out the gift shop
and spend even more money instead of tending to your friend?
or would you rage at being asked for more money after no results? Like our community did TODAY.
I know it’s far fetched, but this sums up my experience perfectly.
