I’m creating this thread so that players and devs can hopefully see this and find some sort of mutual ground. I myself have spent about $250 on this game if you break that down that’s less than a cup of coffee a day for how long I’ve been playing.
A lot of people are going on the don’t spend movement. myself I think if you have the money that are capable of affording to pay a certain amount then by all means feel free to pay, if you don’t have the money then I think you should stay within your budget or be free to play. A lot of uproar has come from this mana bonus from costumes and nodes not being applied everywhere.
It seems a lot of people are upset about this I myself can say I’m not completely happy about it but if something is done about it then I will be fine. What I want to do and hopefully others do to is to try and find a way to form respect between players and the developers of this game as I love playing it and I love the community.
A lot of people think that hitting SG in their wallets will bring some sort of voice to the players. Myself I think that’s one way to go about it but people that are completely free to play are still bringing in revenue for SG Just from Mystic visions ad revenue so even if you spend money or not on this game you’re still bringing them revenue by just watching those ads.
What I’d like to see is SG and the players both happy with how the game is for everyone. I think if the developers from SG really take note about how people feel, give more transparency and effectively communicate with us I think it would create a bond. I think that’s what really we should all strive for is a bond between the players and the developers.
We’ve all heard the horror stories about people losing marriages houses etc from spending a lot on this game and that’s their choice really. I don’t think SG really preys on people’s said gambling addictions because people with gambling addiction are going to gamble any way shape or form.
I’m hoping that people that read this might take the time to step back and think what really this game is all about and that’s having a fun time and supposedly trying to relax will having fun with friends online. Now being said I know that there’s still a lot of people that are unhappy due to lack of transparency whether it be said costume bonus talent node bonus actual rates from tc20 whatever. I think there should be a new movement instead of #dontspend I think it should be #players&devsUnite …
If we show the developers at SG that we can be patrons of this game and also enjoy this game together but also have more of a voice then we can unite and have common ground so it’s not players against developers or developers against players. I wish everyone to have fun and I hope maybe a developer may read this and see one player at least being positive for developers but also for players and it may spark something and that be mutual respect for one another.
I think it’d just be best all round and whoever else reads this I’m hoping maybe they’ll think and know that ppl are going to spend regardless on this game and trying to boycott SG isn’t the answer, as if say everyone playing stopped spending at all and didn’t watch Mvs SG would go bankrupt and then there’s no E&P…
LoL I know that’s not gonna happen…but Just being mad all the time isn’t gonna solve anything either… what would is hopefully a middle ground but it’ll take both player’s and devs together to get that…so here’s one player (and customer) reaching out and saying “hey devs I’m happy with the game and ppl make mistakes (like this whole costume talent mana bonus thing) but I understand, but also understand me and my fellow player’s and how it effects our feelings”
If that’s understood and said issues are fixed (Just going on the mana thing but in general) or just more transparency is given we’d be alot happier and so would you at SG by continued revenue but hopeful also a feeling of players satisfaction
Just a running thought I was having
Happy gamig everyone
