Isn't an AMA session by definition a way for FANS to reach a favourite creator?The reason for posting the questions thread on Reddit is that Frontier can reach new players on the PC Gaming Reddit who might not be familiar with Planet Zoo. On the forums you will typically find players who have already pre-ordered the game or are already familiar with the game. It's about reaching new audiences.
That being said, I agree that it would be nice to have a Planet Zoo AMA here as well, as most of the loyal players can be found here on the forums.
Even if it's not, it's a very awkward way of advertising, then.
It's like if a random guy on a street approached me and told me I can ask him anything. What the hell am I supposed to do with that?
What will a new potential customer ask Frontier? "Hello, will the game be good?" "Is there going to be a Steam sale on lauch date?"
Or they will just talk random crap. (apparently more likely)
It doesn't make sense.
Anyway, I don't want to come across as salty. I just genuinely don't understand what are they trying to achieve.
