One day later, Killzone 2 devs changed their mind about controls?

Posted by Jason Triplett Monday, March 02, 2009

We already gave you a statement from a Killzone 2 dev stating the controls were perfect and that nothing was going to change. Now just one day later, it seems they may be changing their mind. The following was posted this morning by a different dev:


we've identified and fixed the bug to do with the boost medal not being awarded. It will go into a patch we are working on at present, but there is a workaround in the mean time to get it. Simply ensure that you are the Game Creator rather than client and you'll be awarded it.

Network Errors/Honor Ranks

We are also looking at fixing a good bunch of the network errors and are looking into the complaints about the Honor Ranks as well as a couple of other bits and pieces. We'll provide a list of fixes when we are close to releasing the patch.


We're working on a permanent solution for the bots stat padding and have some internal solutions that we're going to work on implementing. We'll let you know what those are when we've got the patch together and the solution implemented.

We will NOT be wiping ALL stats and padders will be looked at individually by the moderators. is being sorted out today to deal with the massive traffic its been facing and hope to have some long-term solutions in place shortly.

The stats are currently empty on the site and will be repopulated today.

Controller Issues

We have not stopped looking into the complaints and will see what we can do about it. Any possible changes will have to be carefully implemented and tested before being deployed though.

Charge disarming

We have identified the issue where sometimes the C4 charge in Search and Destroy will not disarm. Will be fixed with the next update.

Shotgun Aim Assist

Investigating the problem and will patch it up.

Clan Games

Sometimes the clan that does not turn up for a match is awarded the win under specific circumstances. Will be patched ASAP.

Battle Replay for Map 8 - Corinth Crossing

The BR on is not quite right and will be fixed soon.

Ignore list

Was found not to be functioning correctly. Will be fixed in the next patch.


Crash when using Saboteur disguise in certain situations. Will be fixed in the next patch.

Infrequent crash when trying to start a game with an empty game name. Will be fixed soon.


There is an issue with the Assassination target HUD icon displaying when playing as a Medic. Investigating and will be fixed.

Thanks and apologies if I am not responding to all questions, PMs and threads. There are simply not enough hours in the day to help all of you out and I have to work on the issues themselves. So please stay calm and sensible and everything will get fixed up soon. As you can see we've fixed up a bunch of the problems you have encountered as well as a couple more you might not be aware of. The important thing is to be patient. Any patches have to be carefully implement to ensure that no additional issues are introduced."

Notice two things, which I have bolded for you. First, that they have changed their mind and decided not to wipe stats, and second, and most important, now all of a sudden a day later they are interested in fixing the controls. Hold up, wait a minute. I thought they said no problem existed? I thought just yesterday they said they wouldn't be changing ANYTHING. So while this list seems to be full of helpful fixes, who knows what part of their word they will go back on now. In the course of one day, they have proven to be quite untrustworthy. Lie much?

And why no mention of the motion sickness? GG, you have a lot of work to do. Stop lying, pull your head out of your ass, make up your mind already, AND FINISH THIS UNFINISHED GAME LIKE YOU SHOULD HAVE DONE IN BETA! Btw, why wasn't all this shit fixed in Beta? Good question. Stay tuned for more!

    Thank God! The game is nearly unplayable. I don't know how GG could have went through beta and released a broken build of Killzone 2. From their tone I doubt they will actually change the controls. They seem to think a dead zone the size of a black hole and a button delay 2-3x that of every other game ever made is innovative.
