Be Happy in your Game!
I spent 100 Geek Gold and all I got was this lousy overtext message!
People can grow out of immaturity. Stupid lasts forever.
Look at all the folks who gave GW games a 1 because the opposed company policy of protecting IP material and forcing unapproved material to be pulled from BGG. Their motivation had nothing to do with the quality or game play of the games.
who rates thousands of games a "1" that they don't own, and without commentary; yet BGG does nothing.
Cupcake Nation feels entitled to win, even when they're not the winner. Hence the EXPLOSION of co-op games. The emotion of losing runs so deep with no way to cope with it, causing a lashing out at anything that it can be deflected on associated with the loss rather than just accepting and dealing with it, or heaven forbid, learning from it. Hence all the 1 ratings for the game. And it's truly hilarious as you pointed out in the ratings. I went and checked the ratings for the game and the bulk of the "1" ratings were given in November 2016. Eliminate any rating given after October 2016 and you're right about where the real rating for the game would fall.
Just don't expect BGG to do anything about it. Here's their policy:
How Do I Report Someone Rating Large Numbers of Games 1s?
The short answer: unless they are a bot, you don't. Everyone is allowed to rate games whatever they want for whatever reason. We do not police user ratings, nor do we dictate what criteria someone uses to rate games.
