The state of the game is dire. I know you like money! … WE KNOW YOU LIKE MONEY! … But in 15+ years of playing your “cash cow” beloved game I have never felt a more greater repulsion against something the game has provided for me to consume!!!
I encourage everyone participating in this post to have a series of demands! Because you vote with you ‘wallet’ / credit card… and you deserve to ask anything ‘virtually made up’ that just has the purpose to feed your emotional intrigue or any curiosity that pertains within the boundaries of the purpose of the game itself.
Your developers have gone rampant ! (except the ones playing with colors & crayons & musical instruments) … You know too well what developers I am talking about! The ones that call the shots about what number does a virtual monkey sells you a cookie to restore your virtual health or some mana potion beverage, if that said number is 2 [Copper]/[Silver]/[Gold] or 10.000 (ten thousand) [Coalescing Visions].
And I’m not saying that 10.000 number might be wrong, because in the long term might be right or even too low. But the fact that if you work a long day to get those … for example purposes lets say they are called 10.000 doll-hars. And then you get to take those ‘doll-hars’ to a shop to spend on something that makes you feel good. To feel that your work had value and purpose! And lets say you buy a box that is advertised to have quality things in it. And it does not.
Even more to find out when you open that box to find some toxic material that would harm your emotional needs and even your health. And finally the empty box with toxic substances in it worthless and not worth your time, effort and hard earn ‘doll-hars’.
Or lets just say an example that is equally pertinent. And that example goes like this: After a day of work you go gambling, and you are faited to lose each time you want to pick your own numbers or the dealer will tell you what numbers to pick and you will get back 10% or a fraction of your value that you paid.
Or just take your hard earned ‘doll-hars’ and give them to a stranger to burn them in front of you without any power of decision if you want to burn them all at once or slowly 1 by 1. You don’t get a say on that matter if what you had gets destroyed fast or slowly.
I really don’t know how they can salvage this one. Because you will lose a lot of money. And I’m just saying to look around, because the smell of sadness is in the air, spewing from your ‘consumers’ lungs. Just check the majority of posts / likes on negative comments and what topics you can find since the release of the patch day.
Dear corporate overlords… You are sleeping! While others trick you with numbers that sound good. Because the ones that put them there might not have had the best inspiration or intentions, but need to make you feel safe and reassured your investment had the most talented people working on them. Well, except the ones working with numbers that are settling and selling / rewarding you for your time wasted in a virtual make-belief-world that is supposed to make you feel better. But in fact it creates sadness and brings emotions of loss, decay of time/value of the time or work invested.
My demands would make the ‘numbers’ people admit they have made a mistake or you made a mistake trusting in their judgement that those numbers are right.
Refund all the [Coalescing Visions] that have been spent untill now for participating in any event that required them.
Increase the cap for [Coalescing Visions] from the actual 25.000 to 1.000.000 (one million) or remove it entirely.
Make all the events for the encounters that required [Coalescing Visions] as a currency until the cloak reaches level or rank 10, all FOR FREE.
After the legendary cloak reaches rank/level 10. A minor fee in [Coalescing Visions] could be applied with it rising in price as the rank of the cloak grows. But make it so that the performance of those who try and achieve more to receive back a full refund of the quantity invested or more if the performance exceeded expectations.
A set of guaranteed (100% chance drop) rewards based on the performance to be delivered after each atempt or failure.
Failure without reaching any objective or partially achieving something that is counted on a meeter in that specific time invested by the ‘consumer’ should be refunded in full if their performance is 0%, or they should get 90% back if their performance at the moment of failure was just 10%. (Personally if you ask me, they should splinter/shard the bigger key in smaller keys that can eventually make again bigger keys from the smaller keys when they aquire more failure from their bigger keys atempts.)
And as I conclude I want to make it clear that the real currency here is ‘Time’ that is being invested by the people that pay you money for all your virtual make blief services and you should respect their time!
(Add any demand that you see fit, regarding the game, representing an issue that needs to be addressed.)
