It's not a freaking lightning bug!
It's a "no graphical effects on most ranged attacks of any kind when units are set to be destroyed" bug!!
I saw a weapon stick through a cloak in a cutscene. The Horror! OMG! WTF! is this game in pre alpha unit testing? HALP!
Why exactly did you use the example of lightning if you didn't mean lightning? You're failing miserably at winning anyone over to your case.
BTW, I've been a gamer probably since you've been in diapers sonny. I know a thing or two about a thing or two. Been playing the Heroes series all 25 years of its existence. If you want to insult me try something that has a chance of landing.
I'll go ahead and stick with my argument: There are bigger fish to fry. Balance. Many people want a RMG. Town Screens. Expansion(s). The conflux working for more people (works just fine for me). A indication of how many turns it'll take to travel anywhere.... And so on.
Your thing is WAY down the list.
You really need to think about your reading comprehension problem and how are you going to address it.It's a "no graphical effects on most ranged attacks of any kind when units are set to be destroyed" bug!!
You seriously don't even know what the word "example" means and how are you suppose to think about that word...
I'll address your main point though, as I've done repeatedly. Your issue is minor. Even though it occurs on multiple different spell effects/attack effects, it's still of far lesser importance because the mechanics behind it work. Is it annoying? Hell yes. Is it more annoying than abilities flat out not working or breaking the game? God no.
Of course, I understand that you might feel the 'non-appearing spell effect bug' is more annoying. Most of us appear to disagree with you. That doesn't make them idiots, disgusting, liars, inept, or impossible to grasp reading comprehension.
I also know you feel that the other bugs I mention here are fixable in patches, rather than hotfixes. True. That doesn't make this issue an important one. And face it, UbiSoft's not going to start hotfixing the game suddenly. They'll stick to releasing patches. Of course, if they DO decide to start hotfixing, I'm prepared to eat these words gleefully. But I feel that any development time used to not fix the broken abilities and weapons etc is a poor use of time.
Feel free to disagree with me. But only in reasoned argument. And without hyperbole.
The likelihood of "hotfixes" is low to nil. Embrace that notion. Hug it up. Wait for patches.
Finally, responding to my comments about personal insults with more personal insults simply weakens your argument again. Try using logic. Try articulating a rational case and maybe you'll sway people. I'm trying to help you. I teach rhetoric for a living, you know, how to argue or debate.
My advice to you is to attempt an argument as free of hyperbole as possible, using examples that better illustrate your concern, and for goodness sake keep your tone civil. We're all on the same side here in the end. We all want a high quality game that we'll be playing for years (or at least until the next one comes).
Compared to some other games out there right now.. there are bugs that prevent you from playing the game at all or progressing, or force you to wipe and completely start over from the beginning of the game.
