Bidding wars, some people like em, many don't. Basically, it boils down to the top 5% of the server getting what they want and everyone else fighting over the leftovers.
More Constructive Feedback. You have a car. A car that is supposed to have certain features but these features either aren't there or aren't working properly. Let's say power everything, windows, mirrors, door locks. So you take the car in to the dealer who contacts the manufacturer. You get the car back with tinted windows, but the features are still the same. So you take it back to the dealer. Car comes back, washed and waxed, features still not added. Car back again, it comes back with a new paint job, features unchanged. This continues to go on for a while. Stuff keeps getting added to the car, but not the features that should be there. Is this good business practice on the behalf of the dealer and manufacturer? Should the car owner be happy that the features that should be there aren't but there's a bunch of other stuff that's been added? Would you want to keep doing business with this dealer that doesn't seem to be getting the point across to the manufacturer of what you are asking to be fixed on your car?
Car = GA
Dealer = Aeria
Manufacturer = GA devs
While I do appreciate the events and such that you GM's are putting out there, the basic issues that have been around for a long time are being glossed over, it seems. At one point, there was a forum message of what was being done with GA, a state of the union type thing. What happened with that? There's things in the market that have been sitting there for months, features, that we have no access to. I personally would rather not see them at all than to see them and get a message that they aren't available. Are there plans to add them? When? What about the other bugs or reported issues that have been with the game for over a year? We need to understand that our reporting of bugs or requesting features that should be active are being taken care of. Not ignored. Not pushed aside. Or if they are being ignored, we need to know that, not just assume as month after month passes of nothing happening. Basically, I'm asking that you, Aeria GM team, let us, the players, know that: yes, these issues are in the works and will be released at such and such time or; no, there are no current plans to add any of this stuff to the game or; Hard, we're just as in the dark as you guys are. A little disclosure can go a long way to winning player trust and support.
