Anthem has had an extremely rough go as of late, with several planned updates doing more harm than good. Update 1.0.3 notoriously broke more parts of the game than it seemed to fix, addressing the PS4 console crashing issue that had been a menace after launch but accidentally causing a gear calculation bug. This was directly after a different weapon damage bug that briefly made a level 1 rifle the best weapon in the game. Naturally, the community has felt as though the developer has yet to learn from the issues that have plagued the game since launch, and the open letter posted to the Anthem subreddit is a result of that sentiment.

Although the launch of Anthem has been plagued with bugs, many players are still enjoying the experience the looter shooter has to offer them. For one devoted player, a Redditor known as Darthchrisshaw, this means having logged over 80 hours in BioWare’s latest title in order to receive their first legendary weapon. Despite their devotion, Darthchrisshaw lost the weapon due to a force field preventing the player from getting to the chest.

Anthem Global Community Manager Jesse Anderson later weighed in with a response on behalf of BioWare, and it addressed point-by-point most of the original post's issues. On the topic of a perceived decline in developer interaction on the subreddit since the game's launch.

To their credit score, Darokaz handled the group letter, which aggressively picked aside Anthem‘s present state, with the type of deftness and kindness that may assist defuse ugly conditions just like the one brewing within the recreation’s playerbase. Darokaz first thanked the consumer for writing the letter within the first place, and acknowledged that the honesty within the Anthem group was one thing they revered. Darokaz then went on to handle almost each level within the fan letter, taking the time to interrupt down their perspective on the scenario each time attainable.

The whole post is worth reading, but I think this bit best sums up the mutual frustration surrounding Anthem. "Anthem is here to stay," Anderson said. "Do we have a lot of work to do to fix parts of the game? Yes, and the team is committed to making improvements and releasing new content … The team is listening to all of your feedback for Anthem on how you'd like to see the game improve, or how you'd like to see us engage with the community differently. I know that players want to see updates faster, but these things can take time to make sure they are done right. We're very appreciative of this community and look forward to the days, weeks, months and years ahead." Finally, to enjoy all the features in the game, players can Buy Anthem Coins from Mmocs at a reasonable price.
