Dude, really, read what you are writing. This thread is overwhelmingly in favour of open only as some sort of solution to the botting problem. I'm the only, or one of a few people saying open only might not be the solution people think it will be.But you wouldn't if it were for you, didn't you? So you're fighting so hard to make the Developers think that their playerbase is totally against any kind of Open Only game mechanic.
What I want you to understand is that people in here is asking for something to be added, you're basically asking for that thing to never ever happen because apparently that would be terrible for your way to play the game. Propositive feedback vs "No I think you shouldn't have that because it's gonna be a disaster".
Let's try it out.
Assuming FD are even reading this, and care about opinions, then surely they will listen to the majority? Unless, of course, they find something compelling in the points i'm raising. But there again, you can be pretty sure that within FD they have had plenty of meetings over the years about powerplay, what they are going to do and what could be done, and every single point raised in these types of thread have already been long considered.
All we are doing here is debating amongst ourselves.
However, if i do discover that I do have some power to influence FD, you can be 100% certain i would totally abuse it
