Your English is excellent.

In fact, I've defended them over this in the forum time and again. And yes, I agree with Alena that the saveable loadouts can indeed be regarded as a premium feature, as they merely serve convenience.
Since I was asking for this feature for quite some time, I was thrilled to hear it was finally coming. However, my excitement was quickly curbed when I went to the store. 250 em$ per slot, or 200 em$ in a bundle is imho - - nothing short of a rip-off. I appreciate the effort that went into this feature, and the financial constraints a business like EW is operating under, but this is bordering on the ridiculous. As things are, I'm going to pass on this. You're absolutely right btw, for the first time since I started playing TH, I feel indeed like a cash cow. And I can't say it helps to increase my readiness to spend further money on stuff in this game...
Giving away a single slot as a bonus for a five grand purchase is a good idea btw, as most of the money would be spent on gear anyway - which might in turn create the need for new slots...
This is exactly how I feel about this. Ripped off is ab bit too harsh. See, in my opinion this is a premium game. I can't think of any other computer game people put so much money in. Sure, there are some games where you can buy a lot of dlc. But here, some people have put thousands of dollars into their maps. A hundret or a couple of hundret is quite common.
I don't have a problem with that, I even enjoy it. Because it's nice to get something new and go having some fun with it and you often really feel the difference. And we are really getting something nice here that is worth the money.
I am as well more a fan of this game and of the work EW does. When friends of mine or my girl complain about stuff beeing to expensive and devs beeing greedy, I always step in to defend this great game i really like.
But some features should be basic, especially when considering the prices of everything else. We shouldn't have to pay extra for carrying space ore for some slots for preset loadouts. I can understand the devs point of view, but I just don't agree here. I do in most other points, but this doesn't feel right. Half the price would be ok. This price or even a little more like 300 per slot would have been ok if we had gotten a couple of free slots. As I said, there are a couple of features a customer could demand when he is to invest that much into a game.
This won't make me a hater, though, and I won't quit because of one minor disagreement. I'm thinking about putting a boycot on the loadouts, but as far as I know myself, I'm gnna surrender and get a big bundle sooner or later. Although I am absolutely sure that I will enjoy setting them up and quickly changing them. On the other hand, there will still be something like an unpleasant feeling with this. Would't call it raped or ripped of, but still... I agree this is very difficult to explain, especially in a foreign language, but I know people understand what I mean.

I do not care what EW does for months!
If it's grassland, good.
It's just me that they should keep their word!!! And if they say Tropical Forests, so must Tropical Forest!!!
Then they chose the wrong words in the last status update! At the word tropical forests I expect a hunt in a very dense forest on probably very small animals.
Or EW have to correct the mistake and not say it will be Tropical Forests and then the focus is not in it!!!
Understand it finally!
No offense, mate, but I don't understand the point here. Yeah, Alena said it would be a rainforest map. But it wouldn't be bad to put some grassland, riverbanks or whatever in it wthout making this statement invalid or a lie. It will still be a rainforest theme. Australian Rainforest. If you haven't seen it yet, look up some of the areas other users have recommended, and you'll see that there's a large variety of habitats. How would you call it, or what should she have said? Rainforest-Grassland-Swamp-Mix-Map? Geez..
Btw, until now I have only been complaining 'bout the loadout prices, but I'm excited about the australian map. Since there'll be an Aussie producer soon, this might become awesome. And maybe BRR will get a little more love, too. Sure, been hoping for Africa, but let's be honest : That would be way too much work to be released now. Basically they wouldn't be able to use any of the species in the game so far. And the number of species on one map wouldn't be sufficient to release all the species people would love to hunt there.
Think of big five different plainsgame like wilde/hartebeest, sprinbok, impala, antelope and so on, predators, birds, crocs... wouldn't even try to count. Would be enough stuff for a second huntnig/safari game or a big expansion. Let's wait and see while exploring the other stuff. Not sure if stalking in the jungle will be my kind, but even if it's not my map there's plenty to do. Many people where wishing for a jungle environment (jungle, rainforest, tropical forest, don'w ant to get caught on such details) so I think this is an excellent choice.
