    I think DecoNoir should just admit that he is banned on the console forums and be honest with this community, also why would I ever support him on Patron if he never replies to msgs. Deco should stop hiding from WGCB.

      I thought it was pretty common knowledge WG banned me for pointing out something they said month ago? Hm, guess some of us are slower than others. That said, not really hiding from WGCB, I’ve invited them several times to the Status Report Discord, Twitter, and PM’d them on the forums for some open and honest discussion about the game’s direction and issues.

      And I don’t make any money from this sweetheart. I just like good games 😉
