Well I'm for Wasteroftime
It has been 184026429th time everyone tries to give admins a chance to change the game and to implement the easy choices. Instead they:
1) Read and ignore.
2) don't bother.
3) Read and speak the impossible which will never be implemented.
The problem the admins have is that they are full of the wrong ideas and they need to wrap up an easy and well implemented suggestion.
The problem I have with the admins is that they are full of the "impossible". If you want my side is when I ask for the help from an administration, you don't finish what was started.
I tad disappointed when Ghelas tried raising my hopes when he said he (can get me another chance )but yet again it was the mouth speaking. Not the actions.
Blunt this is but blunt is the way I am and I apologise for my characteristics.
Ever since the confrontation between me and everyone in the community, the real reason is because Ghelas didn't stick to his word and that is what I call feeding lies.
If this is a slip up from the admin, in which he (was) ... I'm really asking for the truth:
- what was the reason for you leaving the team? -
Maybe an apology?
Thanks Wasteroftime for mentioning those forums because this would of slipped without a fight.
When an administration lies to a player. Just as bad as a players actions?
I don't think your very fair Ghelas to had lied to me about trying to get my account back. I'm not a scammer and I am fair to the community. Just wish the other admins actually understood me. To be honest with you Ghelas, you should had stayed out of the way and said to me that: "I can't help you". That's all. But you had to keep me hanging. What's more is that you never got back to me and that was the worst mistake you made. The fact that you kept lieing to not just me but the players of the community with your "teasers" which weren't going to happen was a step too far. The fact that you were trying to build a vast reputation to the EN for the knowledge. When (most) of what you said was a bunch of fibs. My god, and they say I'm the most hated player. But as least I have a place in the ranks for "doing my best". It's a shame that you can't just tell the truth to not just the community and me, but yourself.
1."But as least I have a place in the ranks for "doing my best". -- Darkblood
Yes, especially seeing the laptop incident and that the players in your event are waiting for more than 4-5 months.
And yes, you have a place in ranks for doing your best by saying it will be done by december 20th(another 1 month).
2."I'm not a scammer and I am fair to the community. Just wish the other admins actually understood me."
How did you get banned then? Most of ppl here knows about that already
"My god, and they say I'm the most hated player."
You may actually be right on that part.
"But as least I have a place in the ranks for "doing my best". "
Doing your what now? Your "best" is not something to be proud of in my opinion. I mean, instead of doing your best sorting out your "events", you are doing your best pissing off some people in the community by your whining. I know you believe that honesty is a virtue to uphold, but I'm still sorry if I hurt your feelings with this post.
@DT: What I promised you is that I would talk to Raquella on your behalf, and that's what I did. You do have a whole lot of ban-worthy offenses racked up and it was decided that you regaining use of your account was not appropriate.
As far as any teasers, there's an entire staff post that explains what happened to Boostr and why certain plans were changed:
It's not exactly a big mystery, and it gets a little old when people act like some misinformation was deliberately broadcasted. When we were working on good stuff, I talked about that good stuff. But then, and I quote: "The company headquarters, which was based in Paris and housed the management team, was then closed down."
This thread that ghelas reposted
is the best thing to ever be done by a UR admin
it is a shame that it came so late when many of the most dedicated players in this game had already moved on.
the hope is that it can be rejuvenated somehow. i do believe that staff is doing their best based on what they think is best....
but i think the reality at this point is that the best outcome for this game is to maintain the remaining community. keep them happy, bleed out players slowly until eventually there is no longer enough revenue to justify maintaining the game. not what i would like to see happen but it is what it is.
the biggest indicator of the level of care remaining in this game would be that recent sell to kate hiccup. millions of clintz involved, not much of a blip in the EN forums.... in years past, for far less clintz invloved, there would have been screams of bloody murder. not saying screaming bloody murder is good, but it is a reflection of how many people somehow cared.
Waster, while I agree that the thread was a great and much-needed thing, I don't think it would have made a huge difference in retaining UR's core base. There's no magic bullet to making UR successful. There's no single development, no attitude towards the players, no amount of admissions and apologies that can do that. Instead, it's going to require hard work and smart analysis. The path is pretty clear.
While F2P has become more difficult in general, some competitors of UR remain successful. Boostr needs, first and foremost, to understand what those companies are doing that allows them to engage and convert players successfully (and of course, to identify opportunities to deliver something that they're not.) Then comes the usual slew of logistics questions. Which developments does Boostr have manpower for? Which developments are "quality of life," and which generate profit? When it comes to estimating profit generated by developments, are those estimates proving accurate? If not, why not, and how can the accuracy of those estimates be improved based on previous figures? Etc.
I think success for UR is possible, as long as those things are all being done consistently.
Ghelas what has happened has happened
it was a long time coming. you may not think it made a difference but you are extremely biased, given that you were on the payroll. you never ever saw a move ur made as bad, you never made a mistake, boostr never made a mistake. those who disagreed were labelled as unreasonable. those who agreed were labelled as reasonable. etc etc
sorry dude that is what a lot of players were looking for. you simply had to read the response to that message to see how understanding the remaining players are. could you imagine if that was done when there was a larger community??? who knows... i say it would have (for me for sure) you claim it wouldnt (but you were working for them)
an overhaul of a format is badly needed, a newbie format that the comic book story mode is one development that has the potential for this -- it could have been Arcade, it should have been Arcade. It could still be leader wars. Some good old fashioned story telling is what is needed. I guarantee you this is what attracted many players into the game originally. It can still be the vehicle to do so again
