Ugh.... I'm not trying to call people out but.....

I simply can not believe the ignorance there is at the Poker Night 2 Steam Community Hub.

First off, it's clear that most people there don't appreciate let alone understand the strategy of Poker, and are just there for "easy-to-win" TF2 hats and other unlockables. Although this is nothing new from the first Poker Night, we now suddenly have people accusing this game of being rigged, unbalanced, and a rip-off just because it's too hard for them to win all of the items.

I tried my best to cooperate with them, I really did. But no matter how much advice and suggestion topics I'm willing to give them, they just continue on with their complaints and remorse for buying the game.

No offense, but have these people ever thought about, you know, rethinking their poker strategy? The AI was clearly built to be more strategic as you win more and more bounties, but people there take it the wrong way. So much to the point that they (I'm not making this up) actually spread rumors that a certain "source" states the developers really did program the game to make AI cheat, and always give them a good hand.

Instead of helping each other out and giving tips, they usually just whine and complain about the game's difficulty, and they're all begging for a patch that gives easy mode. It's also common to hear them calling the game a rip-off just because they say it was deliberately programmed to be "unwinnable". There are even a few boycott topics too because of that.

Despite every nonsensical thing the Community Hub says, the truth is, the prizes for Poker Night 2 are much more valuable than last time. They're hats and misc. items, not weapon reskins like in Poker Night 1. Plus you've also got Borderlands 2 items thrown in. So with that said, it would be common sense to make the difficulty harder to make those valuable items well-earned instead of quickly being leeched out by resetting the Tournament every 5 minutes after going all-in like in the original game.

I'm going to ignore the Community Hub for a while now until everything settles down, but I think they literally just made me sick to my stomach after being there for the past day or so...

    You have to win the items from within the game, if that's what you're asking.

    No no, Jake. He was making fun of the Steam community two weeks ago. If you went on the Steam hub at all around that time, you would have seen a billion of those.

    I also like the ones where they're asking why the items are not genuine. Seen a couple like that today.

  • Gotta love those extremely ignorant customers. They don't do any proper research about product they want and then they complain or even try to sue a company in extreme cases.

  • I've tried to come up with a good response to this thread, but so far my brain decided to take a shit on the part of my brain that processes language due to the big amounts of stupid that thread had.

  • But... But can I transfer it to my PC to my PS3? No? But can I if I really really want to? Still no?

    I'd go with "it was said before the game was announced that you had to have the specific console version for BL2 items. You don't deserve crap, try researching next time".

    Go ahead and just copy/paste that right in, I can't be bothered to log onto steam to post it :p

  • I've done relatively okay so far only really remembering to look out for certain hand combinations (pair, two pair, three pair, four of a kind, straight, and maybe Jack/Queen/King/Ace High if I'm desperate) and I'm up $580k on my game right now. I'm not an expert, but I wouldn't mind assisting in a guide if people needed one.

    Between GameFAQs and Steam Community Guides, I think sometimes fan guides need to be proofread a little more. Some of them aren't explained very well, or there's information missing.

  • @crashblast23 said: Well I checked the Guides section to see if anyone is contributing to strategy yet, and this is what I found instead...

    I voted that one down and reported that guide. Hopefully they will see the guide and take the appropriate action.

    Meanwhile, this guide seems pretty good.

    It could be the same one and the person eventually deleted the post (or was deleted for them) but I saw a similar thread at least saying that "Telltale probably didn't realize that there would be people in situations like that."

    Of course they knew there would be people like that. Part of the reason why they went multiplatform. And why they made the choice to go stictly achievement rewarded and not code rewarded.
