I never thought when i made my first account back in 2008 I would EVER give AGE a 1. Back then things were a lot better. And i think i can say this for all of AGE's games. Now... almost 5 years later.. I just have to give you all at AGE a 1.
I've been an avid shaiya player since 2008. Bought Ap when I wanted to.. cause it helped me out when the economy started to inflate. Then i stopped. I started noticing the game going down hill. EP5 is when it started.. Now we are in EP6... servers are merged to make it seem like there is more activity. But... People are leaving.. AND.. People have been getting hacked for their gear and other valuables. I dont think this is people giving out their passwords here. Hackers are finding their ways around everything...
People are quiting on a daily basis. It kills me to see some of the people i used to lvl with.. who reached 80 (spent a lot of time and money on it).. just up and sell off their gear because they're quitting. (tell ya how unhappy people are?)
(In a broad spectrum) I wanna say why your losing all your players for the games.. is because of your lack of attention to the people. We all express our problems on forums in HOPES that our prayers will be heard.
In my opinion... If you want to succeed at keeping players, and gaining new ones.. WORK ON THE GAMES YOU ALREADY HAVE. PLEASE.
Im looking forward to Scarlet Blade.. but... I dont wanna sit here and say i wasted 4-5 years of playing all for nothing. I think I might be asking too much when i say: Please.. please.. please start paying more attention to the current games you have already released. We come up for a breath of fresh air only to breathe in a mouth full of water. Prayers go unheard and People are leaving.
Its time you make a choice. I dont think its too late to make a change for the better. (optimist)
I have been barking up this tree for 2 years mate, i have laid down detailed and specific ways in which aeria could make changes in mere MOMENTS, and ways they can improve both their service and the games they host without the devs.
It falls on deaf ears every single time, they simply do not and will not care. Nothing anyone says here is listened too, this feedback poll is nothing more than a formality, i have yet to see a single suggestion on these polls acted upon in the last YEAR.
I don;t blame superman, the GMs or even the GS's. They aren't the problems with this game, the entire way Aeria runs its business model is why everything they host turns to s***. If their contracts are so constricting (as i find hard to believe knowing people that work in the publishing industry) then you know perhaps, maybe REFUSE TO SIGN UNTIL IT BENEFITS AERIA MORE AND GIVES THEM MORE CONTROL OVER THE GAMES THEY HOST??
Money > Customer service. Any good company knows that you make MORE with Customer Service > Money, but ofc Aeria is anything but a good company. Anyone i talk to i tell so stay the h3ll away from Aeria games, and i know plenty of others that do the same. That can't be good for business can it? Well they don't care, as long as they are making money in there here and now that's all that matters, no matter the cost or strain on their games and players. Just get as much as quickly as possibly with 0 regard for what happens in the process.
I find this entire poll nothing but an insult nowdays. Its clear by the fact 1s are ALWAYS in the majority that nothing happens, or we would see it here.
