      It takes 216 level 9 jewels to craft 1 level 12 jewel....The drop rate for level 9 jewels in camp 5 is about 1 in 10...so to get enough to create a level 12 jewel you will need to hit camp 2160 times using 216 stamina. Even if the drop rate from camp was 1 in 1 you would need to hit camp 216 times using 22 stamina. Hands up all those hitting camp for level 9's

      As it stands a level 9 jewel is valued 216 times lower than a level 12 jewel...That's worth bearing in the mind next time Merlins Madness drops you a level 9 jewel....you'll only need another 215 to make it level 12....Did I say level 12? Aren't we on level 14 jewels?

      That's right, yesterday Gaea delivered an obsolete workshop that crafts obsolete jewels....You couldn't make it up.
      And my guess is next week (or at worst the week after) they will release lv 15 jewels.
      Get ready for the next round of the big spenders getting even stronger while everyone else is ignored.
      And they wonder why people are quitting.

        The game is now down to a few hundred mugs that still spend. The Gaea takeover that promised much has delivered only disappointment for me...their administration has been appalling.
        The only thing left for players to do is spend money...take pictures of what they've bought and then post in line chat groups.
        Other than the green gem button there is no entertainment left anywhere within the game.

          Building levels and troop order

          I agree with everyone else, why put stuff in that absolutely no player requested or wants? Or why not just ask?

          The drop of the building levels is dumb and requires extra work to figure out what buildings to upgrade. If you are really in love with this change, can you just add the Level indicator at the top like you do for the map? So I can choose to show them permanently for the given session?

          The reversal of troop order is very annoying. As noted earlier, changing the order of things that we have used for years is a major disruption (with the possible exception of correcting the non-standard display of rss needed in Heal - that should be the same as our usual rss bar, wood-stone-ore and not ore-stone-wood, and I'd be very willing to relearn the order in heal if reset to wso).

          I love the new Open Multi with one exception: if I only have one chest, why do I have to go through an additional dialog to open it?

          As for dead items, again, if an item does not have a workable Use button it should be thrown into Misc as a first step. Then give us a method to exchange them or even delete them.

          And why did I win/buy a Vow of Fire? And what is Dark Matter that I won/bought so many arthurs chests chests for a month or two back??

          And why do you give us gem passes and kingsmarks in expensive chests? The silly tiny limit you set on trading these, coupled with the very few times you offer them for trades, has me to the point of cursing if I get another one. These items should be good. Why set limits on items we have legitimately acquired?

            I have been leaning towards the following conclusion for a few months now: they want people to quit. They want to divest themselves of the burden to manage this game. They don't wonder why people quit. They wonder why they aren't quitting faster.

            As TangerineOne pointed out in the Community Manager thread, they have given every indication they have no intention of making any true investment back into this game. From the outside looking in, the only improvements (if they can be called that) they have made are minor and require very little investment on their part.

            How hard was it to reverse the order of items in our inventory?

            How hard was to remove some color and texture from their map tile overlays?

            How hard was copy Use... to other items in the inventory?

            The only thing they actually spend time on is accelerating the release of jewels, hammers, gear and buffs. Why put these items out at such a quick pace? To make sure they are able squeeze every last dime out the few hundred players still willing to pay Gaea to screw them over. They are very quick to put on a new Event to promote these new items and not quick to do much else.

            They do not care if people leave the game.

            Hell, they open up a server to accelerate player development and then don't support it.

            Take this statement from Arthur regarding Gaea's stance on Inventory clutter for instance:

            Originally posted by Arthur RT View Post
            2) We sent them several hundred items, but it's a coding issue. They would have to move someone away from other parts of the game to do removals (which seems wasteful). They came back with the Inventory Optimization that you see in the Statement of Direction, as a working alternative.
            Gaea uses this excuse as bullying tactic. They state they are working to better the gaming experience and any time taken away from that would lessen said experience for all. Everything they do is a coding issue. They are freaking programmers. Their optimization included reversing the order of nearly every item in our inventory and putting ports and nearly every useless special event item at the top. I fail to see a true gain in functionality there.

            I would have much more respect for Gaea had they come out and said, "This game is not a priority for us. We'll continue to keep it running and provide some new items along the way. Pleases don't expect much more than that." But they won't. Instead they prefer to alienate players. Excellent business practice I say.

            Again, if one of these groups can actually get something more than the small victories they have been able to get thus far, then I will certainly applaud their efforts.

            There is a reason there is no Gaea presence on these forums or in those Line chats. Why engage when the goal is to disengage. They want people to quit.

              Reluctantly have to Agree Bonz

              I can see no other reason for the appalling treatment and mismanagement of such a loyal group of players.

                Gaea Scam

                I always favour cock up rather than conspiracy but I do wonder know. No serious investor would treat a product they've bought like this. It does look like they are extracting what they can from the dwindling number of Gemmers until it collapses and they can shut it.
