I can understand the sentiment, but recommending Awesomenauts to people that are never realistically going to stay/might not exist at all in some cases is not going to help the game at this point. Fixing the problems that are causing this decline might, but that would require input from Ronimo—see the problem?

This is 100% factual, 0% hyperbole, and totally without any personal feelings attached to it:

I've played this game pretty consistently since its PC release. During that time, I've gifted and/or heavily suggested the game to 18 friends both online and offline. The majority of those people (roughly 10-12) were years ago, somewhat shortly after its release, with the remaining ones being somewhat recently (a bit before Rocket). One of those people stilled played the game after a month. The one who continued playing stopped at 6 months. Also, he only ever played when I played.

Location: Here in these forums (Diz Forced me!)
I agree that the negativity should end, but as I know that's not exactly the popular opinion of the forums. I understand where the stance comes from and I understand that Ronimo hasn't done much to dissuade this sort of behavior (By satisfying people with actual community managing). I just can't really get mad at them. I'm so invested and so in love with how much this game has improved since I've gotten it, the friends I've met through it, and just how devoted Ronimo has been to ensuring the game survived as long as it did. I know that each of those have different opinions from person to person, but that's how I feel.

I don't think this game is gonna die. This is Ronimo's passion project. If the passion is gone I'm sure they'll say so, and even then they've at least given the game something to have some sort of extended lifespan beyond their deving of the game.

And I know that all it would take to revive it is some coverage from the right people, but I don't know what Ronimo ever intends to do on their stuff and that's the big issue. They're not transparent, but transparent or not I'm at least glad they got us this far.

That's my reason for having my opinion anyway.

I also agree that we might have slightly less lurkers and more talkers if we were slightly more positive rather than negative. Since quite a few people who would even talk nowadays (Since veterans who speak on the forums are few and far between) don't have as much investment haven't exactly had time to get mad yet and it just kinda pushes people away, and from almost every person I've ever talked to who used to frequent the forum their main reason for leaving is that...

A. Other veterans were leaving and it's becoming sort of barren
B. There aren't that many discussions anymore and more of what equates to (For lack of a better word) negativity circlejerks
C. They're just petered out on Nauts

Newer players are sorta exempt from C so the rest relies on us being more inviting rather then "Sharing" our opinions to someone who may or may not listen.

Edit : I mean for Pete's sake we STILL talk about how the game was better 2 years ago from a change that barely affected the game. If that's not a good example of a hard to approach discussion from the perspective of a new player I don't know what is

They sure haven't told us if that's the case or not.
Please ronimo, when will you Inform your players about what is going on?

You guys are just mad you're all getting the console treatment. We've been getting one reply every two months and a patch every year. Get used to it at this rate. Now we can all take this Ronimo L together...
