I'll give this rating a 1. You have damaged my game, AVA, by only doing what you want for the game, and not listening to the voice of the game...the actual players. For example...the timed guns. I know everyone has been ranting on this, but it is a serious issue that has to be addressed. I don't mind the guns being timed, as long as there's a permanent version available. E.G. You have the CR-21 for 30 Days for 1499 AP as well as the CR-21 Perm for 1099 AP (which I know is a glitch). Either way, you based your opinion on what you think YOU can create revenue and went with that.
We had a petition of almost 1,000 players trying to stop this, but you didn't listen to us, thus the player base had significantly decreased (I've noticed this personally). You may be like "Oh, they are players, they don't understand how we can make revenue or anything like that." We have created letters after letters by GS's and even a few GM's to send to you guys to help fix this game, but you guys won't read them or acknowledge their existence. We have given many ideas to fix, but you won't take it into consideration. I don't even think me typing this would have any effect on the game period...after all, I'm just one player.
If you want to be successful, learn to listen to the players, and find something that fits you, too...it would be a potential win-win situation.
You have, however, have done some pretty good things such as Tiered Spending and Promotional Events for the game, but sometimes people don't find them interesting. Trial and error...anyway, I digress.
If you start listening to the public, I will most certaintly give you the best rating I could...that's all that really matters...especially for AVA...
Thanks for reading, I hope I didn't bore you to death...
