Hey, Tekken fans: If there's something you want from the game, you probably shouldn't just sit and spam the developers.

Tekken director and producer Katsuhiro Harada took to Twitter today to air his frustrations with fans continually tweeting at him. People can't get enough of continuously yammering away about who they want to see in games like Tekken and Super Smash Bros. Apparently the constant flood of tweets finally got to Harada, as he took to Twitter to lay down the law.

After receiving even more tweets from people who apparently couldn't get it through their heads,

Harada noted that the team does value "opinions, requests, and feedback." It's just that an excessive amount of spamming and tagging clearly starts to get irritating. That's totally understandable, and shouldn't be the go-to method of communication from Tekken fans.

"We listen and value opinions, requests and feedback. However, spam due to a large amount of tagging and replying interferes with normal communication. I always listen to opinions, but spam and tagging are not welcome. It's simple," shared Harada.

He also acknowledged that most gamers who get in touch don't spam, but he was concerned those who do could be seen as the majority.

At the end of the day, what you should get out of this Twitter exchange is that you just shouldn't create endless Twitter accounts to harass developers. You should probably leave them alone, in fact.
