I play Shaiya.
Well I should correct that statement. I've been trying to play Shaiya.
Lag and DC's.
Ok, I know this isn't nessecarily your fault. BUT my problem lies in that there are so many people experiencing it and no offical post. You don't need to tell us why, just acknowledge there is a problem. If it really sooo hard to make a post that says:
Hello players, really bummed you're all DCing and stuff. We're on it. Hopefully be fixxed soon. Be careful when playing UM's.
Pretty much feels that it's just being ignored. You've got to remember unless you tell us your working on it we assume that you arn't. That makes people angry.
I personally haven't been able to log in for longer then 15 mins, averaging about 3 min when I can get online, while I do realise it is in part a problem with my ISP, as I am not the only one experiencing the problem it is likely a problem at your end too. It may be a little better now but there should be post however vague and uninformative when there are server issues just so players don't feel it's being ignored... like all our feedback.
Asking for feedback
Just don't... if you aren't going to listen to it. You know what's worse then being completely ignored? Being asked for feedback, giving it, being told wow thanks really helpful.... and then have the exact opposite happen.
40k... Wow, you've really out doen yourself and to think I under-estimated your greed >.<.
Tiered event price raised again... We were once told our tiered was being raised from 15000 to 20000 for a "one time special event", then every tiered after that was 20000... Now this month we have a "one time special" 22000 tiered! Now I hope I am wrong, but I expect next month tier to say something along the lines of: "Since we had such a good response to it, we're having a 22000 Tier again!".
Well, I was wrong. You raised it to 40k... just wow. I have to say I really really hoped I eat those words and we'd be back to the old 20k, but nope... repeatable tier.
But I did lol at:
You've been asking for moar moar moar, so we've pumpkin spiced this tier up a bit and have one other new twist we're giving a try (and may never happen again!): This Tier Event will be Repeatable for a total of 2x the Tier!!! No trick, all treat. Enjoy!
So umm... if it's what we've all asked for... why lock the topic? I'd also really love to see even one post where a player asks for a 40k Tier. People will pay for it, But it's because they feel they have to, not because they want to.
which brings us back to:
70 Gear for AP
Gradual roll out my rear end. It's been a few weeks since these items were introduced now we have free cupons for Boots, Repeatable tiered for Top and Pants + Mystery boxes.
Now I am only just in game seeing people wit the ROTCO gera and that's one piece, no one with a full set. Which is great I still haven't hit 70 and have been working on a Secor set. Now i'm up against people with a nearly complete 70 set! Boots + Top + Pants + Helm + Cape .. Oh but they don't have gloves so it'll be ok >.>
Once again, you asked for our feedback, you got our feedback, you said ok thanks we'll do what you guys said! /Ignore and do the opposite.
Too many Mini Tiers. One or two a month should be enough! 11 + Sonic and Flash promo's is over kill. How is it realistic to ask someone to spend $75 every 2-3 days, then $400 at the end of the month?
The over whelming vibe in Shaiya and it's forums is frustration. We are all getting feed up with being ignored, being sucked dry and being filled with false promises and false hope. I know we have 2 new PM's and you probably think it's too soon to judge. But I feel the problem sits above them, how far above, I don't know. I just know that things looked so promising when Ulicul was our PM a lot of players had hope again and it showed right through the community. Then we got Spaz back and well it was back to the dark days. Short term profit grabbing is killing the game.
I've pretty much accepted now that you have given up on the game and are just trying to bleed as much money as you can before:
- Blizzard releases Diablo III
- You finally release Lime Oddyssey
This just makes me sad. But i'll be honest if it wasn't for my guild i'd have quit. When my friends start leaving then there is nothing left in the game to hold me.
While I highly doubt this will be read, and at best ignored as a rant. At least I got it off my chest.
A little disapointed. Had to reply with info clearly stated in my orginal ticket to get the issue solved. Just don't feel it was read properly and probably a focus on getting through as many tickets as possiable is leading to some things being over looked.
GM's are cool, GS's are cool, PM's get a frowny face
Edit: Adding link to my comments on game's mopnthly Tiered event. Found the feedback split from the main, ana ction I don't feel was nessecary.
