I love the outrage for this. The weapon is a crafting piece you can’t even use until the end of the campaign. The weapon itself isn’t even useful. Everyone who bought that pass will have access to it next week if the release date is to be believed. I get you didn’t get your meaningless unusable weapon on time, but the outrage for it is quite ridiculous. The big pass was to get the early access to artifacts and the mythic earlier, not to get the weapons earlier(I’m aware this was part of the deal, just not the appeal). I get the principle of the situation but there are bigger issues to be complaining about.
Lol I didn’t say that. But maybe a slight mentality adjustment to manage expectations might be in order. Ya know, cause its a mobile game and caring this much about a mobile game can’t really be that healthy. What do I know, im just a lowly F2P dev loving apologist.
So that someone doesn’t swing their ban hammer at me…
On solely principle alone, yes, the weapon should be expected and given on time. Obviously, hard for anyone to argue that.
My comments above are a statement of why the ratio of outrage to wrongdoing is off the charts. I understand its an accumulation of mistakes compounding already highly negative attitudes but I believe I have the same right to call out when the ratio is way off for certain things. In this case it clearly is.
It is the principal of it.
If you order your happy meal because you want the toy and they forget the fries does it mean you should stay quiet about it. No, there is a polite way to go up to the counter and bring it to there attention and wait to see what they’ll say or do. When there is silence outrage slowly builds. Not because you’re missing your fries, but because the absence of action equates to an intentional slight.
Honest mistakes happen. What we’re looking for is confirmation they know it happened and what the course of action will be.
Just FTR, as the OP - I’m not outraged, just mildly disappointed and it’s a bug/glitch hence raising the ticket. I know in the grand scheme of things is not a biggie but it’s not the best way to acknowledge players who are putting money back into the game
I’m not sure there is, this is beginning to look like a company suicide attempt. Think about it a bit, what’s their key selling point for the Elite+ Pass? This is what you currently get:
A few extra rewards past the end of the regular reward track.
A few extra stars.
Exclusive early access to campaign related content (weapons, troops, cosmetics).
I’d argue that the first two items are considered mostly irrelevant by players. The extra rewards aren’t even remotely worth the cost, even based on a very generous “gem value” calculation. The extra stars don’t allow you to take any shortcuts, you still need to complete all tasks to collect all the rewards available, including the non-regular ones. Which leaves early access as the key incentive to reel in players willing to spend money.
As it currently stands, IP2 isn’t only not honoring the early access deal, they even fail to acknowledge that delivery is way past due. This is a bit like buying an expensive ticket for an exclusive preview screening of the next Star Wars movie, arriving at the theater to find the doors closed without any explanation given, then having to wait in line for the regular viewing to start to be let in with everybody else. It doesn’t matter how much the movie itself might suck, I definitely wouldn’t buy any ticket, whether expensive or regular, from that theater again. I’m probably not the only one who feels that way.
@Kafka@Saltypatra This is just a visibility flag in your database that can be flipped within minutes. Please check if anybody important dropped dead during the past week, this should have been resolved at least two days ago.
