I love how new features usually is more ways to try cram stuff my throat that require me to spend sapphires. Did you know they are re-releasing "***********" with a complete new engine, combat and gfx overhaul, and... its free :p Of course there is monitization through selling items and such ingame, but what do I care about if someone dressed like a clown and paid for it. Just as how little I care about people spending on castle skins in Stormfall. Of course all the other "pay to win features"...... is what ruin the game.

im not targeting you i swear its just i always had a question as a Mod i was not able to ask ( so when i say "you" its for the community xD )


why do you complain about coining ???

1) with the game high pricing it only needs 10 coiners but right now there is many more ( just a look at the chronicles gives enough hint )

2) you choose to play then you realized its a pay to win then you ask plarium for changes NOTHING happens so why keep bother ? 

3) you guys who spend a little every month because you know the stat of the game your strategy was to cut down on purchases but obviously things are not changing so why still bother ? 

4) lets be honest there is no change because there are coiners in the game as it is and it is satisfying plarium well enough so why putting the anger on plarium since literally things are still running ( to you guys who say things are going downhill well lol it has been months i keep hearing that but sure it seems not by plarium standards thus no changes 

bottom line just stop complaining to a WALL trust me it becomes annoying after a while ( it happened to me )

Why I complain? That is easy, its the nature of man to complain. Its raining outside, why no sun? To warm outside, let it rain ffs....


I used to spend maybe around 10ish a month on this game for a while, now its less (not even half). As for Plariums standards.... I rate them alongside the standards of a hobo happy to live in a cardboard box under a bridge. Or like a dirt farmer that got a small patch of land and is happy with what he got rather than aim for something bigger and greater. This genre got untapped potentional. Imho if Activision did come out with like Total War online, games such as Stormfall would lost a lot of players. 

I don't directly tell players not to spend, but maybe some of my posts, rants and ravings might influence others to not spend, or not spend as much and that way influence Plarium in the long run, who knows. 

Im not really that frugal and such, but my budget just allow for so much to spend on games, movies (entertainment) a month. As such my money goes where I get the most back in return of fun and value for them. The value you get for your money in Plarium games is very low. The house always win, and the house is Plarium.

The Bug message is dead and so is the  Grand Marshal phantom message. I loved the upgrade, very thoughtful to bring the master key. after opening 2 chest, and finding the same equipment, the second with 1% more value I stopped buying keys. Now I can get one that open all rarity, at a fraction of the price, and I won't even feel like I am buying it, In a special offer package, that come at 80% less.

 

I also loved the bonus program, as a player with static budget I used to lose out on the ordinary special bank points as I couldn't buy enough in such a short time.

All the professional developers (and hell a lot of the unprofessional ones) have in game alerts, warning of upcoming maintenance and down time.

Everyone has a right to an opinion. No one has a right to their opinion being respected by other if it can't be backed up with rational and logic explanation

Advertising other games is against forum rules.  Please refrain from doing so in the future.

Many games occasionally have unexpected downtime due to glitches.  Of course most games also have a test server where players can test the updates to see if there are any glitches or major problems before the update is released on the live server, which helps to minimize unexpected downtime.  I'm not sure why Plarium doesn't have this for any of its games.

The question and answer team have these, there is also a server for Plarium employees according to some CM answers. That is where they tested the BG system and found that there is no bugs. 

I am sure there is also some beta testing done.

Then why do we have at least one player with a perfect log that shows there is a bug. Not just a small one a 250m / 50m of lost power sized bug?

If more players kept logs this wouldn't be an isolated incidence either. There are many big players who have experienced this. They just don't have the hard evidence to prove conclusively like that guy does. 

In another thread several players offered to live test the real server for Plarium. Why did they not take this offer up if they are really so confident that everything is working as intended?

Rewards will come sooner or latter. 

Side note. Its always a good idea to share knowledge. I think you should go to the Russian servers and ask those guys how they are doing BG, they are very good at them. And they never complain about a ''bug''. start by talking to Shiv from Pirate server.

Yep, but if they had say a thousand players playing that test server there would be a much higher chance of detecting bugs than with just a handful of cms/devs.

Negative Eugenia, I spend less than 20$ per month. This has done absolutely nothing for me except a disruption in play.


I know, image management isn't fun. :(

Perhaps it would be helpful if there was an "expected maintenance" schedule on forums warning players when server will be down a few days in advance, that way leagues that plan on doing a major attack or something can avoid those times.
