***This post is a copy of the e-mail I just sent to AGE. The image sent to AGE support is better resolution/size. Anyhow, I told you guys I'd post the e-mail on the forum. Here it is.***
Thank you for a great game. I've met many good people on Monster Paradise, and call quite a few friends now. So many of us enjoy the social interaction and friendly competition within the game. You have a strong core group of players supporting your product. They want to continue supporting the product as strongly as they have previously. There is a concern with a limitation within the game. Specifically, that certain monsters are untradeable.
I recognize that the game mechanics and balance should not be upset. Neither should the profitability be upset for AGE, because that limits the future of the game, and the reward for the hard work of the staff.
Hoping we can meet in the middle as players and staff. We request that NO CURRENT promo/event/invite monsters be made tradeable, and ALL PAST promo/event/invite monsters be made tradeable. We see this as a compromise, because even if more players wait until untradeables become tradeable and do not buy foil packs, etc... there will be less of those cards in the game, and value will go up. People will buy "battle brews" from AGE instead, to purchase these monsters in the game from other players. Either way, AGE wins. Either way, certain players will always purchase new products to be the first kid on the block with them, or to be the best individual, or to support the best guild.
It's acceptable to keep them untradeable even between promos, but when a new promo comes out, please release the previous to be tradeable. They won't overtake the popularity and profitability of the new promo products. Take Aries for example, hardly any of them are left in the game to compete with the new products.
Currently the players *request* the following to be considered for trading:
* Foil spirits (except R+ and SR+ foil spirits)
* Monsters in the Martian Pilot chain (except R+ and Martian Pilot+ SR+)
* Foil dragons (except R+ and SR+ foil dragons)
The players *suggest* the following to be considered for trading:
* Only Topaz Wolf (with hopes the entire chain will be made tradeable after 2 or 3 more new promo products have been introduced. 1-2 months?)
* Only Supernova Princess (with hopes the entire chain will be made tradeable after 2 or 3 more new promo products have been introduced. 1-2 months?)
The attached petition lists the players who support this game change consideration. Each unique player name is taken from those supporting the "make tradeable" and "Guild Leaders Only" threads in the MP game forum.
Thanks for the consideration,
