a) the question is: do they really? highly doubted. in this case here, the tags most likely were done to make sure “it isn’t forgotten” the next day in this time sensitive matter.
otherwise we have a number of currently un-acknowledged bugs that are occuring ingame that are publicly known but probably aren’t even being worked on internally. For some bugs there even were announcements that “testing is in progress” - but since months not a single comment to the current status, despite asking about it again with tagged messages. So, are we being lied to on certain things or how do you explain such radio silence?
I personally have a bug report ticket open since over 1.5 years. two of the above tagged “moderators” have at some point taken over this bug report and after my answers to their questions since months again abandoned helping me without solving my bug report. there’s clear patterns…
b) if certain moderator accounts are being tagged to a important topic/bug noone can afterwards say “but we didn’t know”.
c) to me personally sometimes the answers or announcements feel like “bots” with regular mistakes and wrong informations due to possibly just copy/paste of text. happens. it is what it is.
Just confirming tagging mods generally doesn’t get you a faster response, we’re checking almost every thread every day (outside of ie. Guild recruitment threads).
I will generally see you tagged me while I’m already in the thread reading it before I see a notification for it - we are pinged a lot across every platform we work on so they become noise rather than helpful alerts.
We get more pings than we can physically keep up with as a human being with 8 hours in our work day.
Obviously we check for PMs but we only reply to PMs on the forum if it’s about an issue between forum users (arguments, threats, privacy issues etc), or something else that should be done in private (ie. maybe we asked for an invite code or an email).
Because you mentioned it: we have in the past asked players to not ping us and explained it doesn’t make a difference but it is what it is, and that’s ok.
I think we should keep it on topic in this thread though please.
We have changed this weekend to the Invasion weekend and the Christmas weekend will be the Arena weekend.
Generally we actually see an uptick in active users over Christmas, due to people having more time off to play games. But this way everyone has the option to play or not without feeling any pressure to contribute to a guild event if they celebrate Christmas.
Coming to a game’s forums to complain about people caring about that game is like buying tickets to a football game, walking down the rows of seats, turning around and yelling into a megaphone how stupid everyone is for being a football fan.
Detrimental? Seriously? To what sane person is not maxing an event a detriment? You’re totally missing the point. You must’ve missed my earlier post.
Why do people care that much about the event? They could just accept the event for what it is, and not care if their guild gets all the rewards that weekend. Or (God forbid) they could tell their guild not to worry about the event, and enjoy the holiday.
Nope, can’t do that. If there is an event, they gotta max it out. What kind of life/game balance garbage is that? Do people really not see that mentality as a problem?
Or do what these bold people did, and cry to the devs to change it, for the sanity of their guildmates. That way they can enjoy the weekend. What the ____?
It’s great that the devs changed it, don’t misunderstand me. The fact that they felt they should do so, that part makes no sense.
Hi there! A tiny question)
Maybe you’ll consider rescheduling next Guild Wars? The week of 02.01-08.01 is holidays for us. According to spoilers, there will be kingdom pass + legends reborn + weekly event then. It’d be cool not to suffer from the Guild Wars pressure during the holiday week and just spend time with our beloved ones.
