It has been 3 days since I posted message for GM and still no reply. I really feel like I have been "Black Balled" or I am being personally ignored because of all my rants.
You may take them as me complaining, but I call it constructive criticism. How are you to improve on a game that you are having so many issues with if you are not willing to listen to your players?
Now, this message is a complaint and personally I don't care if I do get replied back to or not, because I sure am not getting any responses in GM button.
You sent out a message a few days ago about your "Star" ratings. Requesting us to go in and give you 4-5 Stars to bring in more players.
Are you out of your mind? Why would I want to subject other people out there to the same thing I am going through? Just don't make sense to me.
You can not even reply to people on a timely manner, we just get excuses. You say that you are under staffed. OK, get more people to help with the game and answer questions. Give those people the ability to actually get with some one to fix the issues that is happening. Write up a proper Guide to the game instead of having players have to search the forums, post in forum, ask GM or having to find a player that is williing to answer the question they have.
Let the people know what is actually free in the game without being forced to drop a bundle into a game that you can't even get proper help with.
Seems to me, that all we are doing is paying you to live off of something that needs to be fixed. START LISTENING to the players. Fix issues, don't ignore them. Get more help, just be sure that the help you get, is compensated for their time. I know you have many players out there that are having less of an issue than those of us that are just starting. Get them to help.
You start doing a few of these things, then maybe, just maybe your ratings will go up, because I can tell you this, it is the people that have come to play a game and that there is not true help, thoae are the ones giving you those low ratings. Those are the ones that quit the game, it's the frustration as a whole. Just stop to think about this and fix it.
Personally, I have not gave a rating, but if I was, it would be a 0-1 only because of the way the game is being run. They length of time it takes to get a response, the glitches, the lack of a proper guide, the issues of getting anywhere unless player's pay in and the all the way around of how this game is run.
