If Larian's going to be that dismissive and flippant about criticism I'm note sure why they even bothered to release this game in Early Access to start with. A little bit depressing i must say.
And yeah, how in the nine hells can a direct quote qualify as "malicious misrepresentation" ?? Especially if both parts gave their consent.

But since you're not allowed to post what was actually being said, down to the letter... Yeah... Not sure what they are going on about here.
