I get the impression no amount of communication would have made you happy. I mean you've gotten very clear answers here, and you're still upset. I'd bet if the port had released on switch without any mention of split screen on the store page, you'd be here complaining about how the switch version is the inferior port and that the devs shouldn't have bothered releasing it at all if they couldn't get it "right".For sure. If I bought the game and it had split screen but was very buggy - I would complain. Why wouldn't I? Why shouldn't I? Maybe I'm misunderstanding but I think what you're saying serves to simply demonize and invalidate those of us with very good reason to be upset.
Let me clarify. The issue is not simply that the game doesn't have split screen. The core issue is the complete failure of communication.
I would be fine waiting if it was properly communicated that the port was incomplete. Sadly it wasn't so here I am.
Switch split screen isn't an issue for you? Good for you, but don't frame things as though there wasn't a MUCH better way they could have and should have handled this release.
Edit: I checked your profile and according to that you don't even own/play Terraria on switch.
