Is Gameloft just incompetent?

I'm playing a game of theirs on my Surface RT, and it's just plain buggy. It ran better on my Galaxy Nexus a year ago, with lesser hardware. It is a timer based game (building, gaining resources, etch), and the timer doesn't go down unless you completely close out the game.

I went to their site, to tell them about it, and quickly realized I can't. They ask if it's for Xbox Live or Xbox Live Arcade, neither of which are the Surface RT. So I can't tell them about the bug, and I can't just email support because they point me to their bad support site where I can't tell them about it.

Does that scenario say more about Gameloft or about Windows RT and its developer support?

Gameloft doesn't really care about games outside of iOS in my opinion, because iOS is where they earn most of their profits. Almost nobody are willing to spend money on apps in Android and other platforms.

Speaking of gameloft... iOS 8 betas ruined most of the ones I have.

DISCLAIMER: I know it's a beta. I'm just mentioning it.

Gameloft make some of the best games that are unfortunately, riddled with bugs and other crap.

Dungeon Hunter 4 has been broken on 4.4.3 devices for weeks with no comment from Gameloft or ETA on when a fix might be offered.

I use to love the DH1-2 series until they changed the format of the game with IAP BS.

If it wasn't for the fact that there are other games on Windows RT that look better and work better, you might have something. But that isn't the case.
