It’s so hard not to feed the trolls or give in to the need to explain the joke for those who completely missed it.
This thread has outlived it’s purpose in my opinion but has served to scare up the underlying problem.
People will complain, it is what they do. I agree that complaints are necessary to improve products and services. Would prefer if people were nicer about it and brought solutions to the table, sure, but we can’t all have kittens and rainbows. I get that. The primary issue I have with the complaints is the fact that people feel entitled to better heroes/drop rates simply because they say so, when the drop rates are a lottery and have always been. It’s the only way to make it fair. People with deep pockets will play the lottery more. Can’t win if you don’t play.
People will complain about the people complaining, and that is actually okay too. You have no right to take that from them.
People will be grumpy about the complaining, saying that it’s pointless to complain about the complaining, which I guess I disagree with because it does serve a purpose to complain about the complainers. Anyone complaining about those complaining about complainers should really get their head checked, they are not sane anymore. Because, why? So you can feel mentally superior? I guess. Go, you? Whatevs. It doesn’t bother me a bit.
Then some people will write up weird fanfics based upon complaining about complainers (I’m flattered, I guess?)
Back to the topic:
These games live and die based upon the patronage of their “whales” (the big gamblers).
Developers need feedback to make the games better.
The games ALSO need balance, so player feedback needs to be carefully analyzed for feasibility so that it does not throw the game out of balance, which will lead to its downfall. So they nerfed your Hypermonkey Jesus so that he gives a 100% bonus to all Simian-based jujubees, and not 110% bonus… they have to take care of the game-world, so that it is fair for others.
It’s also hard to prevent games like this from becoming pay-to-win, because people with money will spend it if there is something to spend it on. It’s the very business model that supports games like this.
If everyone is SOOOO worried… about how “fair” the game is… there is a potential solution, SG COULD have people ‘opt out’ of playing versus people who have spent more than they have on the game. This is an idea of trying to come to the table with fair, balanced & intelligent solutions beyond simple complaints with the expectations that the SG gods are going to cater to you because the customer is always right. NO, the customer is not always right. Money talks.
My original post still stands and is still rife with valid points, your disagreement with them does not alter the validity in any way.
As @NPNKY said (and caused me to cry many, many mirthful tears):
“I can keep repeating this for you, but I can’t comprehend it for you.”
Grumpy gunna grump. Eviscerate my reply with your sharpest, keenest wits if you like.
