...so EW themselves should write your bug report for you? I'm not sure what you're trying to say here.
Are you pretending that you don't know how these things work ? You know very well that every company that respects itself has beta testers, payed, to do exactly that, before the game is launched and after if the need arises, to correct left bugs. Asking customers to report bugs, with the rigor of some payed beta professionals, it is a mock and an act of contempt, IMO. The tune that they don't have money to pay such testers won't fly, because they have the more expansives prices in their virtual store for any item. They have money but they discovered that it's easier to trick (some) of us to do their job for free. Please don't pretend that you don't know that, too.
If they would've keep it simple etc, maybe I would've helped telling them these kind of info what you see here and in the general chat when something goes wrong. But rejecting my bug report on the grounds that is not as they wanted (meaning professional) is too much for me. I won't accept that and thus I won't do their job instead. Now I hope you understand my position.
I'm not pretending at all, I'm genuinely trying to figure out why you're upset at something not working in the game (which when released, worked fine - I've got the mission completed in my missions), but then apparently not caring enough to fill out stuff like a description of the problem (which isn't complicated, we're not asking for your blood type or solving some algebra problem or something - it's basically 'what were you doing, what is your operating system"), and then posting it.
The mods deny and accept bug reports, and I've done my fair share of that too. If every report that was made got accepted, then the developers would be spending half their time chasing people down trying to get more information out of them, because a -lot- of the reports are "this is broke, fix it you cheapskates, my computer is a laptop", and that's an enormous waste of time for everyone. The developers have to spend their time trying to find you to ask you about your system and why they can't reproduce the bug, and you still are doing the equivalent of filling out the entire form, you're just doing it later. Provided you want to help, and not just complain about it on the forums.
It's like walking by a piece of trash on the ground, pointing at it, going "someone should really do something about that", then when someone points out you can pick it up and throw it away, you shrug your shoulders and go "not my job". It's just not a very altruistic attitude in general, doesn't really help the situation at all, and certainly doesn't help get the trash off the ground (or the bugs fixed).
