- Moderators have no access to your game account. If you have an issue you must contact customer service.

Generally, BE NICE. There is nothing wrong with being nice to each other.

    Yeti, I think your use of the word "rage" is more indicative of your own demeanour rather than mine. In the 4+ years I've posted on the KOCBFTN forums I've never raged against anyone. Although I have to agree with Blood above....whatever abuse and rage Gaea get is thoroughly deserved.

    The questions I have asked and the opinions I have given in my posts above, are both reasonable and legitimate. If you disagree with anything I've said your more than welcome to post your own opinion and tell me why you disagree...that's why we use forums Yeti...for intelligent discussion....not the juvenile one line throwaways that seem to be your speciality.

    With that in mind, perhaps you'd like to give us your opinion of Gaea's progress with the game so far...or you could tell us how the Pod of Vol Mods have improved communication between the players and Gaea....or perhaps you could share your knowledge of the ideas and suggestions the Vol Mods have put forward to Gaea, and give us your reaction to the feedback Gaea have given the Vol Mods.

    If that's a little out of your comfort zone you could always ask one of the "Pod" to respond.

    Yeti,

    It is not a matter of raging against anyone, though Gaea certainly seems to deserve it with the way they treat people who pay their salaries.
    It is a matter of getting some actual information.

    I asked for an explanation of what the volunteer mods relationship with Gaea was and how the communication actually works.
    No answer from them.

    We have asked for information on what they submit to Gaea for suggestions (not just we asked them to update the prize list, but actual information).
    No Answer from them.

    We have asked for status updates on suggestions.
    No answer from them other than they have submitted a few ideas that may or may not ever make it into a release.

    That is not to say that they have not accomplished anything at all, but the lack of actual information is the biggest issue.
    We have no idea what they are actually asking for.
    We have no idea on what they submitted for suggestions (the actual information they passed on to Gaea is what we as players want).

    For example, they list tier 6 defense as a suggestion they submitted. What does that mean. What was actually asked for?
    They have asked for inventory cleanup. Also what does that mean?

    We have no idea if the suggestions they submit actually reflect what the majority of people want or is just their ideas that benefit them or some other minority group.

    And in the communication sent out from Arthur, what he said was

    Originally posted by Arthur RT
    We have a list of suggestions under consideration that range from:

    "reassign all troops"
    inventory cleanup - we believe this could be in a future release
    tier 6 defense
    daily chance
    not awarding silver/bronze medals, only gold medals
    not awarding troops in increments of 100/300/500
    So he is saying that these are some of the suggestions that they have sent, but not necessarily all of them. If they submitted other suggestions, what are they?

    So as far as increasing communication between the players and Gaea, they are not living up to what they stated their purpose to be.

    Lol smh yeti yeti yeti your missing the point we just want better communication with the company. We want some honest answers once in awhile and we would like our questions and problems to be answered by someone who can actually answer and hopefully fix something . It is nice what that they atleast have the mods go through the forums but the mods can't fix anything and don't give us any answers above I will pass this on to the devs .

    There is a website called Gaiaonline and it is games and forums and other stuff every week they do a live chat with there players so they can ask questions to the devs and not only that every single update made by the devs including bug fixes , features updates and new events go into a special forum so any player that wants to know what the devs have been doing it is there . It would be nice to even get a part of this but no

    One of major factors in that introduction was to "improve communication between Gaea and the players".....Yeti, We've not seen what the vol mods have communicated to Gaea nor have we seen any communication or feedback from Gaea. So...No improvement in communication, in fact no communication at all.

    She also stated the importance of "updated prize packages" and indeed states they have submitted suggestions based on player feedback from a variety of sources. But as players we have no idea what those suggestions are or if Gaea think those suggestions are viable and workable within the resources they have available. Given the lack of changes I would suggest not.

    Tourney's, Campaign, Explore, Picts, BtB etc are all retention tools within the game, yet even with the exodus of players these game features remain untouched.

    I would expect a Vol Mod to represent fairly and without prejudice the needs of the whole playing community regardless of spend...but that's not what I see. When I look at the updates from Arthur, I see a Vol Mod who lacks any real perspective on the game beyond the "Green Gem Button". I also see a Vol Mod following his own (and that of the elitists) agenda rather than representing the needs of the wider playing community. The guys even trying to put sales pitches into his updates...given the state the game is in....that's just crass.

    Its time the Vol Mods gave us an honest update regarding their current relationship with Gaea, because as it stands it's not a relationship bearing any fruit. If they feel Gaea are giving them the run around and not delivering on promises made then its time to say so. To string players along with no prospect of any meaningful changes would be reckless and self defeating.

    Almost right. To give players false hope while being ignored by Gaea.

    And this is the problem with a Volunteer Moderator.
    No real information from Gaea.
    We need some information to give us real hope that the game will evolve and issues will be addressed.
    If the mods can not deliver (and not necessarily through their own fault), then Gaea needs to get involved and let us know whats happening.
    So even if the mods are doing their best, it's just not good enough.

    started a topic At what point...

    At what point...

    do the "Pod" of vol mods envisage Gaea delivering some product? Will there be any new and sustained product delivered? Or are we now just left chatting about what w'ed like to see, with no hope of ever seeing the wealth of player ideas come to fruition?

    Arthur, Guinevere, Lancelot.....Is it not time you guys started to deliver a little more than chat? The game is at a standstill and players are bored witless.
Working...
