No proposed bad sequel has ever been cancelled due to poor initial response from the fanbase. Please, feel free to prove me wrong on this one. Find me a single example. I can show a long list of sequels that had been universally panned from the start that continued through production just fine, finally being released to mixed financial results.
I, on the other hand, don't want the company to go into pre-production without knowing my concerns and misgivings. Maybe if they go into it knowing that they do not have the home advantage here and that they have something to prove, something better may come out of it. I don't want the team to go in with the viewpoint that everyone backs them in everything they do with impunity, because then we'll see Telltale take the path of least resistance and release a regular Telltale game that changes nothing about how they make games, but with superficial King's Quest trappings. This isn't their home territory, they don't belong here, and they need to make significant changes to the way they do things in order to make it work. It's possible, but I don't believe they have the stuff for it.
And by "direct insults", I mean the obvious vilifying of myself and people who share my point of view on the matter. When I made a thread to gauge peoples' reactions, I didn't call those who enjoy the game "sheep", I worked hard to make sure my poll was as balanced as it could be and that my wording was conducive to a discussion no matter how you viewed things.
