No long funding for trashy worlds like Tib 54

I have made a decision to stop funding any of these new worlds with ridiculous starting layouts and high morale.. all of it seems only geared towards increasing fund sales and wasting players time. What ever happened to working to make the customers happy? The developers/EA used to offer codes occasionally that could be used to get resources etc on worlds.. the developers sought ideas from the players and started having worlds that were fun to play due to exceptional starting layouts like 6touch tib with good power layouts etc.. but then some complainers (who I wont mention by name) starting complaining, saying it made the game too easy for noobs to maintain decent ranks and competition, and that the game should be changed, to cater to the 'experts' who needed more challenges, having handicaps to make the game more interesting. Well, that hasnt happened in my opinion. It has just developed into a multi-accounters circus.

  • That´s the only possible way. Stop buying funds.
    Your mentioned reasons for layouts like that at tib54 is 100% correct!

    @EE_Elephterion and Co. got more than enough proposals the last 2-3 month. But they have no manpower for that game (see "simple question thread"). So there will be no changes.

    Tell me one sensible reason to pay 33 Euro / 37 Dollar for a an unsupported game.

    The only reason to spend 33Euro on any game is that it gives you pleasure! It doesn't matter if it is 40 years old or new (although new will probably be more then 33 Euro) it's the reward of pleasure that should be governing your expenditure. If it's not giving you pleasure and you have the funds, spend it elsewhere!

  • ...bad updates for the game the last month/years
    ...instead of a nice "strategic war game" now its a boring farm game
    ...instead of teamplay - more or less - everybody has to play alone now
    ...multiaccounts as far as you can see
    ...instead of 15.000 guys playing now its about 500
    ...Forum(s) dead
    ...very few new servers
    ...starting a WSC at the wrong time (what was it? 2 hours earlier?)
    ...starting new worlds with wrong settings
    ...changing settings after 1 month (or more) after the start of a new world
    ...closing threads here whenever you don´t like the discussion
    ...instead of paying 10 Euro its now 33

    and so on

    you´re right - thats gives us pleasure. Because of that more and people are joining/enjoying the game.

    If things are so bad, why are you here and why do you 'play' the game?

    I suspect you just enjoy complaining!

    Yes, things aren't perfect, but we live in strange times in an imperfect world with more to be concerned about (no matter which part of the world you're) than how EA, a massive money machine, behaves with one 10 year old game. You may have liked it in the past, but most of your posts suggest you don't like the direction of travel or the destination either.

    If you're not enjoying the game, don't play it! If you can't afford 33 Euros, don't spend it. The money machine will survive without your small contribution and that of the others that have deserted the game for pastures new.

    please stay on topic and don´t try to explain the world to us - otherwise the thread will be closed quickly.

    thx
  • Only fund where you are happy to do so. It is a game and games believe it or not are suppose to entertain and be fun filled. If that don't meet your needs then you are not tied to this game just go find something else and move on.

    If you spend money on a meal that disappoints then you simple don't go back. A game is no different if it disappoints you find another ;-) I also normally tell friends and family so that they also don't get disappointed.

    I stay here for a while as i have fun on old servers and now i only spend a small fraction of the funds that i once spent on new servers. LOL the badges as we have noticed on recent servers are now laughable "get in line" so for me there is no need for one but there is a need for fun and that can be found in an abundance on old servers so for me it is actually a win win ;-)
  • I enjoy the family of friends.an enemies.an everything that comes to it .build your family..its in that they gives everyone a piece of the action.thier is so much more to the game than your realize.it is a war game an it has some deep issues u have to work threw.find what u love orbit an become the best at it.like spying.diplonacy.thonk of it as chess time a million.
  • Sorry fat fingers on a droid lol for mispellings

    to me it is not the game that disappoints, it is the operators of it. Tib 54, they give us morale and a 'hand picked' starting layout that is so bad you would be hard pressed to 'hand pick' a worse one.
  • this game dont care lordo nor the devs no one gives a monkeys even when they see it sinking, they just deny. wcs was a joke for ten yrs, and these new types of server said no myself as they aint fun, the game has gone poor, customer relations is at the lowest it ever been, project broke the game. we all said the hell is with all the alts and refused to play keep refusing, and they will get it, iggy we should of listened to, long live king iggy

  • gamerdruid, we want our accounts A N D our funds back!! the game lost its sense if EA closes our account in a running game by changing those rules for log in. our strategy doesn't work and many player lost their funds and their fun!

    We developers have no input on EAs policies regarding account security, we have to work with these changes just like the players. your only recourse is to contact EA customer support about account recovery and provide them with all your details and new emails so they can restore access to you.

    As for the starting conditions on new worlds, I'm sure we can work out something.

    Good luck when you try to get to talk to anybody in support, they are never available, I tried for months, left my email address but no reply, a waste of time.
