First of all if you wanna call me out get my name right.
i dont think that making the game a pay-to-play or pay-to-win game will make the owner of the game sacrifice less time and do less for the game. He will still have to take care of it. Money wont give him more time. I even think that making it a paying game would make him have more work because now he will feel that he owes something to those who pay to play and will have to give even more effort. And the contributing members will probably expect more from the game. I dont agree with you.
Read what he wrote, we we're on the verge of losing the game without even knowing it. Money won't give him more time? What do you know about his life? This could become a viable business which would allow him to put more time into it by adding balance to his life, because he may be able to work less hours at his real job or he could hire more people to help him with this game. And that's just off the top of my head. He loved doing this but has begun to lose the love he once had because he already has had to work more and more to keep up with the demand from GM's like you because he feels he owes it to you, all the while GM's like you already expect more and more, in fact more than those of us who actually contribute.
And when you say most of us dont care , again you are being wrong. I am sure that everyone recognize that this is alot of work. That is not the problem at all. We also spend time to play the game and we decide to use our time here on this game and now if we have to pay to play it also change the situation for us.
You already proved my point of being selfish and entitled in the first couple of sentences but now here you did it again. You say you recognize that this is a lot of work but then try and equate it to you playing the game.... Are you serious?? Then you again make it about YOU having to pay. This is a joke.
We will also lose all the effort and time we spent to build up our teams because we will lose all our players. Did you think about this ? I been here for a few years building my team and now not only i would have to pay but i lose what i have done. I cant agree with this solution.
Did I think about it? Yeah I voted against... Not only proving the focus group is no more relevant than the rest of the forums but now I'm glad I didn't because I know that the best part of the game is starting with a new team and having to build it from scratch. The problem now is starting with a new team, especially for new players to this game, is everyone else is already set and it takes that much more effort and more time getting a good team. That deters new players from joining. Getting a complete reset opens the floods gates for a whole new group of people plus it puts us all on even ground while being completely fair to the entire community. If you take so much pride in your team like so many of us, me included, then do it again.... The game has become stagnant because no one does anything any more, we all just hold onto all our players and the game now has hardly any activity. Anders wanted to address this and he did it while considering every single person including those that haven't even joined yet all the while you once again only think of yourself.
I also have a family and spend time here and im not gonna start to cry to everyone because of it. This is my choice and i wont blame anyone or ask for a compensation.
Again made it about yourself and you belittle Anders because you once again place the same value on you playing the game versus him creating the whole thing.... Your 2 dollars a month is worth more than anything in his life or anything he has done for this game including the hours he has put in for us?
Again like i said in a previous message , i think that the contribution should be for those who want to have a little extra like having a logo or mascot and such things
This is already how the all-star accounts works, you can change your logo and jersey numbers.
but not for limiting players from playing in the top competition and have the opportunity to be in a focus group. Changes made to the game can easily make it lose players so i think it should be taken care of very carefully. Many like me might see it as unfair that now we cant join the top competition and will want to quit the game. I can understand that some are willing to pay but it is not for everyone. It has nothing to do with what we think about all the time the owner of the game has put here or how we appreciate it. Nothing. I also disagree with having a focus group for those who pay and the free players dont have a word to say. This is also unfair to me. Everyone should be involved. Pay to have the possibility to say what i think ? No thanks. This is like if we would tell free players that you are not important and we dont care about what you think. This is not the way to go to improve the game and make everyone happy.
How it is now has been determined it isn't working because the community hasn't grown, and if you haven't figured it out yet the option to pay is not exclusive to anyone. You, like everyone, have the choice to pay to be in the paid leagues. As for the focus group, what makes you think your voice isn't already being heard? What are you doing right now, is this not you expressing your opinion? Has Anders and Tobias not responded to this forum post? Have they not already tried to make compromises to make this better for everyone? People have been quitting this game non stop already, the problem is already present. All you did here was demonstrate how you feel entitled to have the game be how you want it to be where you don't have to make any sacrifices but you expect Anders too just in order to "keep everyone happy". You think it is unfair to you? What about Anders.... This is absolutely disgusting.
Also once again the sponsorship idea is overlooked.
