    - Removing all army upkeep and recruitment limitations for the player is good. The player should refrain from abusing it.
    - Giving unlimited movement to all player armies is good. The player should refrain from abusing it.
    - Letting the player construct any buildings in any number in any settlement for free and in one turn is good. The player
    should refrain from abusing it.
    - Letting the player stop all AI movement at any time is good. The player should refrain from using it.

    I presume y'all "self control" proponents see their dream game described just above, right?

    Utterly hilarious is that people put so much effort into absolving CA from fixing bugs in their game. Has anything good ever come out of giving devs a free pass on lacking QA? No, 'course not. So either the people here defending this bug are either engaging in utterly self-defeating stupidity out of some mistaken sense of pride or, despite their condescending preaching about willpower, actually hope this bug stays so they can exploit it but are too chicken to actually admit it.

    Either way, you lot are pitiful.

    Clamoring for more QA > clamoring for less QA

    None of us have ever said CA shouldn't patch it. Just that this bug isn't gamebreaking.

    The bug is completely inconsequential, it would make SO much more sense to actually advocate for fixing bugs that have a impact on game play.

    But nooo let´s all join the rant wave now that a Youtuber instigated a crusade against a bug that have zero impact on game play if just ignored.

    So you admit you are wasting your time?

    What have you lost if CA patches this ASAP? NOTHING! O right, except you can't use this exploit any longer. Hmm, I guess I was right that all this condescension about willpower was just you trying to maks the fact that you want to exploit this yourself for as long as possible.

    But.. caring about the big things and responding proportionally in a reasonable and business like way is > Clamoring for more QA > clamoring for less

    Yeah, except that it's a complete phony dilemma because the fix for the backspace bug would be really, really simple and could be done in about a five minutes if CA cared about it.

    Sorry, you can't both underplay the bug and then overplay the effort it would take to fix it.
