This new Gold offer.

Post by Special Agent 47 on Wed Jan 02, 2013 6:05 pm

I am sure this will appear as a bash, but its not. And before people say I just do not want people catching me, I am a cash player so I am very able to take full advantage of the offer, more then likely this offer helps me much more then the average player.


Now the issues I have with it are,,,,

1. Why was the 200$ purchase feature not added? AW is just throwing away $$ by giving it to PP by forcing people to buy multiple packs. It's like shooting yourself in the foot. Since the system is bugged now I suggest you lock it, add the 200$ option and then release it when you have the bug fixed. I am all for the game of AW getting the most $$ possible and PP getting the least. This is a win/win suggestion that has been on the table for a very long time, every sense the $$ limit was doubled to the 200$ mark.

2. As I said when the limit was doubled from 100$ to 200$, is this really a wise move?(which I was never given any type of a response to, completely ignored) At the time the limit was doubled you could buy 43 mill men (approximate guess based off memory), and the average army size was only 36 mill men or so( again, going from memory). As of this post the average army size is 59,983,251. With this gold purchase offer a person can buy 98,840,000 men. So a 1 day old account can become 1/3 Bigger then the average account in the game in 1 day. Now yes there is much more to it as the account would need decent techs, infrastructure, constructions, and money to deal with it, but the point needs to be made. If you look at kewal that offer nets you over 39 and a half Trillion Kewal. It nets you 280,000 AT. This means in all honesty a player can take a 1 day old account and buy 60 mill men and well over 13 trill naq which would put him roughly equal to the average account. Is this really what we want? Are we dancing a fine line that could lead to some serious abuse?

3. Lastly I have to ask why? I really do hate to say this, because one of the main point that made me stick with this game was the fact Martin has never appeared to be "money hungry" as many other admins have. Yet this is an obvious ploy to increase revenue. Many people played very specifically to have a small advantage when this was released, and this offer has dashed that in the head. Many have wasted months and months of altered play for no reason what so ever. This game has never been a $$ spenders paradise, but the game is most definitely starting to turn that direction. Again I am not aimlessly bashing here. I am a firm believer in the fact Santa does not pay for the server. I have myself donated many times for myself and for others as well. I have brought in players who are also donators. I just do not want to see this game fall the same way so many others have when its more about making money then having a great game. Another thing that I find a bit disturbing is the timing of all this. Customer service is at a all time low with Admin being absent since early/mid November, with there being multiple forum topic and messages still left unanswered. Serious issues, not trivial stuff (yes some are trivial, not all are dead serious). What I find disturbing is this is following the same trend that has ended my career in every other game I play. As customer service drops and the admin becomes unreachable, the $$ aspect of the game grows and it becomes a "pay if you want to compete" game.

Personally I hope I am wrong. Personally I have no issue with the $$ aspect other then I find the limits entirely to high, but at the same time I know the game needs funded. I would once again make donations if we had an active admin who would answer questions and respond, and we had a better support system for the admin as I find the one we have presently very short sided and not user friendly at all. More then anything I want an admin again. One who communicated with his player base, and one who tells people whats going on. Why we keep following this same damn "Throw updates in and let them guess, I'll post about it later, if ever,,,,, since I like to watch them bicker and see "someone" tell false statements and the rest are dumb enough to believe". Why? Why can't you throw a "hey, I'm pressed for time, but I'll be updating the server in the next 24 hrs and hope to have a complete list and explanation around the same time or shortly after". Remember the last round of updates where you said you would do a full list? You still haven't.

Love the game Martin. Still have faith in you. I have to be honest tho. Your no longer the best Admin I ever had. Your barely better then jason at this point and roughly the average admin for these type games. I wish that would change. I know the game is bigger, and I know real life comes first, but this game deserves better then what its getting right now in my opinion.

Just writing here that I am aware of the topic and will be replying to this, it is not being ignored

After reading the other thread it seems I completely misunderstood this offer and it is nothing like I thought it was nor nearly as bad. It seems there is only 2 option to get the double gold and it is the 2 smallest options and only available 1 time. This is my fault and knocks about 80% of the above post in the head. I do think it would be nice to just add an additional 500 gold to any purchase so people could donate what they wanted and still get the small bonus.

I still feel the 200$ option needs to be added in as it puts more $$ in the hands of AW and not in the hands of PP. I also still think the $$ limit is to high, but that is just my opinion.
