Wow, talk about topic derailment.
As for the original argument, I consider myself as a pretty new player i joined on 04/07/12. UR was my first online cards game. And quite honestly i found this game very addictive.
And yes prices are a big demotivation. Price manipulation almost always hurts the new player, many people feel that its a bit unfair that the card was half its price a month ago and the price would not go back down. Its understandable that staples prices would rise inevitably but when you realize that Wayne Stark
, which isn't even a staple would have a price hike, it all feels a bit unfair.
Another one i guess is that UR requires you to spend in some cash, I know the seasoned old players wouldn't mind that but the new player is always the most hesitant on spending cash.
The reason i kept on playing was probably because the Uchtul Romana
events which helped me a lot.
And quite frankly i don't mind all these hurdles, because "Its a part of this game."
The only problem i find is that i feel there is a HUGE communication gap between the Players and the Admins. There are so many complaints, and likewise suggestions etc which i feel just go unnoticed. I might be wrong on this, and it could be true that the Admins take note of everything, its just that they don't show it. On so many community message boards there are so many discussions but all of them are done by the players. I find this really disturbing.
