A few players?......I just found out this morning that one of the most dedicated and quite possibly the highest ranked player of the game is now leaving and selling their account. I also know of at least 5 others. This is sad. Let me explain, however, I doubt you will comprehend.

To many of us friendship and loyalty are why we continue with this game. We join guilds, not only to get a boss card, but to be a part of something. We often choose a guild based on the players we wish to associate with and bond with. We also select our friend list in a similar manor. So it is a big deal or a huge deal when we see these players leave because to you they are replaceable, to us they are a friend, a guild mate, a loyal gamer who may have provided a bit of competition that would keep us motivated. It is heartbreaking that this is happening, and your inability to show compassion is even worse. We are not exaggerating, we are showing our feelings. For many of us, this "exaggeration" or "over reaction", is an attempt to hold onto a game that we enjoy and an attempt to keep a family put together of fellow players with similar interests.

I hope your money is worth it.

Very well put RavAnt!! I am down to 1 original guild team mate now. We've lost so many of our top members with all the crap. Our previous leader left because, "It's not fun anymore." His words exactly.

and another +1 from me

I am in a small guild. We had 4 players who were getting 50K in guild war and had been together with additional players for approximately 2 years. Since you shortened the guild war cycle, I am the only one left and most of the other guild members have also left.

I know you want more money but you stand a better chance of making more money when people are happy playing the game. Every one of your recent actions have made this game less and less fun. Additionally, this latest move will make the game a lot more expensive for most people to play. When something gets too expensive, demand decreases. This is commonly known as the law of supply and demand. I think the people making the decisions at your company may need to take an economics course. I am guessing that these people are the same people who established the original faulty poll options and probably the people who decided to set guild wars every 3 weeks. It is very strange but I don't know of any player who is really thrilled over the current guild war structure. Yet like on so many other things, you ignore what your players are telling you.

Remember, it is the players who support the game with their money. If players decide not to support the game with any more money, the game will die. Maybe that is what you want to happen, but I don't understand why. The only other thing I can think of is that you want high level players to quit the game because they are probably in top guilds and you want to break up the top guilds because of complaints about the same guilds always winning guild wars?

Since you brought this subject up, I would like to ask the following:
1) But is the number of paying active players more or less now than six months ago?
2) Is the average amount spent by paying active players in the last 6 months higher or lower than in the previous 6 months
3) If the answers are the same or higher, then why are you complaining about money?

I bet the answers to my questions is lower and now you need to figure out why. A good start might be reevaluating your recent game actions since I know of many players that are leaving the game or selling their accounts. If you don't fix things soon, I am afraid this game is doomed.

Since you felt the need to post your reply twice in different threads, I have merged them together so there isn't need to reply in two places.

We have been monitoring the player reactions within the game via server data for a while now (daily actives, session length, etc), not just on the forum, so we are aware of the potential impact of each change. As for people selling their account, I wouldn't recommend anyone buying since it's not condoned. We already know which 3 players are selling (there is no need to exaggerate the amount), and which top player you are referring to (it's a vey early top account that never had to purchased Gems, which we haven't looked into yet).

Admin wrote they don't condone selling accounts. WHY NOT? I personally wouldn't sell my account because OKIE_1 is a handle I have used for many things besides this game and wouldn't want the name standing for something I wouldn't be in agreement with.

Also I guess it's possible to have become a high level player without buying gems but player must have started on day one. Something sounds a bit fishy to me. I saw a page of cheaters and thought Y'all had things under control. WHAT HAPPENED.?.?
