If the point is 'we don't care how many thousands of man-hours you poured into this game or how much people seem to love the work you've done otherwise, if you alter a piece of irrelevant flavor text for reasons perceived to be catering to the Tumblr crowd your company has jumped the shark and should give us all our money back', then yes, a striking point. I can't imagine how people working at Obsidian couldn't take that approach seriously.
Why is it so hard for people to find middle ground here? Like, 'Hey, Obsidian, this was a sh*tty move, we love ya and PoE is otherwise great but please don't do it again' rather than 'you've ruined Pillars of Eternity forever!'
It's as if the hyper-sensitivity and crazed over-reaction of the SJW community is contagious.
Nah dude, its nothing like that, Obsidian jumped the shark but what is done is done. I'll just try to get my money back and move on with life, twas a great experience thou, but somehow now, the game feels like the game is garroted (dont even know if this word exist in your language, sorry) for me.
