    Why don't you:

    Make a lemonade stand
    Sell a glass of lemonade for a dollar
    and then thank me for the dollar afterwards

    I know I’m old school, but it makes me sad that I think you’re right on how business is run by CG and other companies nowadays.

    because they never say thank you.

    Maybe i'm old school, but i feel its wrong to try bash someone by saying they didn't do something that they have done.....on multiple occasions.

    Really?

    Those all say “thank you for your understanding”, “thank you for your patience”, etc.
    He asked why they haven’t thanked customers for our financial support.

    Those are different things.

    Have you ever collected the anniversary gift?

    I don’t think CG is thankful of this community even in the slightest. They show us that compared to other companies all the time.

    Have they said the words thank you a few times? Yep

    Have they in anyway shown the community how thankful they are IMO? Nope

  • To the OP: I agree. Thank you CG. The extra challenge attempts and the temporary hard node cap increase were much appreciated.

    I missed out on the final day's challenges because i didn't anticipate them ending it mid-day, which I complained about in another thread. But that does not negate that this was a much appreciated bonus from CG.

    Imagine the absurdity of people out there who bash cg every day somehow being filled with contentment and happiness if CG put out a press release saying "Thanks for the cash!"

    Not to be controversial but I actually don’t like the 8 attempts. It only causes me to farm 2 characters at a time unless I refresh. Before I was doing 4 character/ship farms a day.

    Without buying refreshes which I’m not into because I’m in hoard mode for GAS and Clones if Clash ever returns.

    Completely your choice though, you don’t have to use all 8 attempts. You could just do 5 and still do your 4 char/ships a day.

    So now I’m expected to finagle with a slider? No thank you.

    Luckily they heard my complaint and ended it. ;)

    People literally thank others all the time for their services? What's your point? Guess it's safe to assume you don't say thank you to baggers at grocery stores or the UPS guy when he drops off a package.

    You are right. However I think there could be a middle ground here. For example when you purchase crystals the in game message says "success " it could say "thank you ". When you sell something you should always say thank you to the buyer.

    They don't need to post in forums or a specialized email just change the wording of the generic popup.

    Okay, you can adjust those search settings to "Thank you for your support" and there are still quite a few posts. Personally, I feel as though it would be inappropriate to specify "...your financial support."

    Those are human beings who are working hard each and every day for hourly wages, and they are helping you get what you want (groceries, packages)

    That's different than thanking a corporation for selling you a bundle of crystals

    The argument here is the reverse, the UPS guy comes and delivers the package and thanks YOU for ordering

    I think CG saying "Thank you for a billion dollars" is just meaningless words

    Its not going to change anything. It doesn't mean anything. If CG wants to go and say it, great. If they don't, so what?

    When I go watch John Wick, I don't care if Keanu Reeves thanked me for watching him on the big screen, neither does Disney thanking me for watching Avengers change my experience or opinion of the film or the company

    The point of my lemonade stand analogy was that the business worked hard to earn that dollar and asking companies to thank you for their success undercuts the amount of effort that was put into making that milestone. I don't know, maybe its just me but DeVito's comment of demanding thanks for what the company achieved seemed like saying CG didn't put any work into earning the money, and its a charity case

    Nope, not personal, but I do know and have spoken with players who’ve spent more on this game than most and never received a single thank you or anything resembling it.

    It’s fine, maybe it’s just this industry and EA are no different than anyone.

    I can still think that’s sad and in other industries would be unthinkable.

    I’m willing to admit the times they are a changin though.

    Let’s put it this way, if I were in management involved with this game, people spending tens of thousands of dollars would hear directly from me how much I appreciate their business.

    I’m not the one asking for a thank you here. I’m just pointing out that a link to posts saying “thanks for tolerating our errors” is not the same as saying “thank you for your support”.
  • They could have waited a few more hours to end and not take away 2 zetas from people who were waiting for the guild activity change.

    While I mostly agree, CG has been very consistent with their game updates. They are mostly on the same day of the week, the same time and there is an in-game announcement of update times.

    Haha what a ridiculous conversation. Arguing about whether a company should thank their patrons outright? That's one heck of an insecurity issue that requires a thank you for your money. A company has a product you want; you have money they want. You exchange for mutual benefit; the end. Why does anyone need to be grateful beyond having obtained what you set out to obtain? Seriously, grow up.

    Companies thank their customers in many different ways and you not understanding that shows you’ve never run a successful business that appreciates its customers.

    Unfortunately more and more as new generations take over, your attitude is becoming more prevalent in business.

  • Well I guess they were waiting for a "thank you" to end it :D
    As for the thankful part, CG is clearly in "auto mode", I mean they act like bots, just making general announcements when needed.
    So I wouldn't except much thankfulness.

    A **** stand might be a closer comparison. I've never done any hard drugs outside of tobacco and alcohol, but my cannabis provider back in the '80s used to say "Danke" every time I paid him.

    ETA: The censored bit was the name of a popular synthetic recreational substance. Expensive habit to get into or so I've been told, but still a lot cheaper than getting addicted to gear purchases in SWGOH.
