That is EXACTLY what we meant. The first week meaning the first 7 days. And, we produced! Make Your Own Moga Contest Winners!
And no, this isn't an excuse. We were perfectly honest about it being within the first week, a week being 7 days. And today, is the 7th day of March smile
Then why didn't you say in the first 7 days. First week of the month to most people implies a time period that ends with the end of the first sunday of the month.
It actually seems more like YOU are getting hung up on semantics. I explained our thinking, you take issue with that because you have a differing opinon. Well, that is your right, but it doesn't make it any less true.
Regardless of how you spin it the game has been going downhill I just want to know why there are hardly any developers working on it or why you don't hire more?
As far as the number/hiring new Developers you can read what one of our Developers has said on the matter here: Does MoGa have any Developers???
Why do the CIs only last two weeks. It just seems like its all about money.
If you look back at the history of Monster Galaxy you can see that we have had many different ways of releasing content. Sometimes we just have story line content, sometimes purchased content, sometimes both. At the moment, we are trying the shorter duration CIs. And in a few weeks, we might try something else.
One of the best things you can do is keep things fresh for your user base. Doing the same thing over and over again can be boring. We will take a look at the data from doing it this way and decide how the user base likes it.
Don't kill the messenger please, because I'm not the only one that thinks this, and spinning one little thing like this using semantics won't change how these people feel.
We absolutely love getting feedback from our users and take what is said very seriously.
I'm not getting hung up on semantics at all, I'm sick of the fact that the devs say one thing but another thing seems to be happening. There were glitches that they said were being worked on and should be fixed, but took nearly a month to fix. Then this contest...maybe you did mean the first 7 days of march, but I was not the only one who found that very misleading. Now you say "well try to release the mogas within a weak but it could take longer because mogas are "unpredictable"...I'd just really like it if the devs would just tell it like it is. Not to mention every time I post a ticket for an issue I get no response and when I try to see progress on it on Gaia they tell me I never even entered one. Tell me I'm getting hung up on semantics all you want, but its not going to make people like the game better so there is no point in trying to argue that. I'm trying to help. Also I don't know many people who don't like the 2 week CI thing, because it seems like people have to spend more money because the galactics change so frequently: instead of spending 20 dollars a month to try to get a galactic they have to spend it every two weeks...do you understand why a lot of players would think its only about money? More on that point...it used to be easy WAY easier to get galactics in the "normal" chance spin, but now the odds are only 1 in 100 in the super spin...this also makes it look like this game is just about making money because the super spin is 50 cash were the other one is 15 and its gotten way harder to get galactics from the super spin than it was to get galactics from the normal spin in just the space of only 2 or 3 months. This makes it look to us, the players, like you're trying to bait us into spending money. I'm not saying that's what the game is about for you and the developers, but it sure looks that way to a lot of us and none of the changes that the devs have made in the last 3 months have been in the order of allowing us to spend less money for the same product that we were getting with that amount of cash previously, in other words we have to spend more to get the same stuff or even less stuff than before. If you have a response to this I'd love to hear it. As someone who plays this game I am giving you something way more valuable than random numbers you call data, this is the opinion of not only me but many people I talk to who play this game. 1 in 100 odds for a galactic is not fair, especially if every attempt to get it costs 5 dollars cash. Not even WoW is that expensive. The fact that this is not something the players want or like and that it has been getting SOOOO much more expensive to get galactic mogas is not fair. This should be glaringly obvious not only because its common sense but also because of the amount of threads and responses in those threads that echo this exact sentiment. Please do something about this or at the very least...why don't you try allowing us to earn moga cash by playing the game? In terms of trying something new that would probably please the people that play the game that would, no doubt, be very high on the list. If you do take these suggestions seriously, listen to this: if I could become a developer and change one thing, it would be to give 1 moga cash for each time someone levels up a moga, especially if you are going to keep sky shop prices this high.
So, as a player who loves this game and as someone whose word you supposedly take very seriously, prove you take it seriously by implementing that last thing I said, I think a lot of people would appreciate it. If not, at the very least make it cheaper to play this game and get the good mogas - its not fair to new players that the prices have been raised this high because they have no chance to get all the galactics that the longer term players got and it makes the arena no fun for them - and if not even that please give me a meaningful response with the real answers to all these questions, because I'm not an idiot, none of the changes you've made in the last three months have made this game more affordable and I'm starting to lose faith in the notion that that could still be a coincidence.
Seeing as how my critical threads get ignored by both moderators and developers, if you don't respond, I wouldn't be surprised, but if you don't respond and you continue to claim that you take what we say seriously, I will to everything in my power to alert anyone who makes any suggestions or critical threads that that is not the case, because no response here will prove me right in that regard. I will probably also use this post as the basis of a suggestions thread in the bug forum not to give you and developers hell, not to troll, but to make sure that they read this post and see the information that it contains, because I love this game and I want it to be fun and successful, but if that is going to happen, I feel that this is something the developers really need to see, accept as truth, and act on.
