I want to know where this came from. Because, no developer is the problem here. It’s Roblox. Everything is tied to your platform so you can squeeze money from their users. Decoupling literally means that Roblox makes less money so, this whole sentence doesn’t make sense.
If anything, people want to leave the Roblox brand for individuality rather than being marginalized as the “same game different textures”.
This does nothing for developers. It actually does more for Roblox. Instead of being a tilted square with a hole, you’re now forcing everyone to append “On Roblox” to gain more users. Which again makes you more money in the long run.
Translation: We’re pushing RThro because it’s the future so, if we get new users, they’ll be here because they’ll appreciate RThro more.
If RThro was good, people would’ve adopted it and you wouldn’t have to push it. Also, let’s be real here, R6 is a Minecraft character with a lego head. R15 is basically the same with break points for more movement on limbs. Y’all act like this is some new, long awaited concept that birthed a new era on this planet.
Hiding that as a “getting a grip on our IP” is such a bland argument at this point. The only people using this are the people bringing an audience on your platform. Everywhere else, no one cares.
This is actually somewhat good. These twisted naming puns were so bad. Not seeing them again is great.
Translation: It was cool using your brand to bring more players to Roblox. Unfortunately, these products haven’t done so well but, we still have the players we got from you so, “lol, best of luck on your own brand, we’re losing money”.
This whole post is basically corporate greed. If I was a star creator or a brand on this platform, I’d be pissed. Both are now stuck here and y’all milked them dry. And then, casted them aside.
This is what happens when you’re a public company. Users no longer matter. Your community no longer matters. It’s “how do we make them happy and make us the maximum amount of money”. That’s what the metaverse is. It’s not a connection of people. It’s a “how do we monetize every aspect of life”. Roblox took it a step further “how do we monetize every aspect of being a kid”.
In hindsight, this is pretty unacceptable. This whole post is trying to hide the fact that this is “good for creators” when it really isn’t. There’s nothing in here that is good for creators. Everything in here is a marketing ploy to retain the same level of users y’all had during Covid.
It’s really sad that you’re trying to lie to these kids.
