  • Why was the thread for Conquest 7 closed when we’re still in the middle of Conquest 7?

    So CG can carefully consider all the feedback in the thread without being distracted by any new posts.

    And if you believe that ....

    And now it’s open again. Huh.
  • Well after the change to make it so SEE can't beat a JMK on defense without some amazing luck I have one response.
  • I'm flabbergasted by the changes for GLOK vs SEE, on top of all the abusive cash grabs. They continue to double down on the squeeze.

    "The beatings will continue until morale improves."

    I have to wonder if this is really making the quarterlies improve or not.

    GLOK?

    Get out.
    The CGDF is no more. Now we hate CG because of conquest. Say hi in our Discord! https://discord.gg/AmStGTH

    I posted this in the wrong place. It was meant for the conquest thread.

    Get rid of Conquest energy. Make it like Galactic Challenges where we can just do it. Maybe doing the same battle over and over and over and over and over and over wouldn't be as bad if we didn't have to spend energy that is far too scarce to do so. How many crystals am I supposed to spend to do something I don't want to do? It's a game just let us play. This is quickly becoming a game for masochists. Hit me again, CG.

    They want you to spend crystals.

  • Man, it's so funny that after all the feedback they just come to announce galactic chases for long time or recently devalued characters. This is to die for :))
  • There is a thing called Price's Square Root Law - basically take the total number of players who pay to play and square root it - eg if there are 100,000 players who regularly pay to play (made up numbers) then 316 of these players contribute 50% of the total revenue generated for CG. If these players go because of the way CG are basically ruining this game (prove me wrong - please!) that's a big revenue loss (we've all seen the 'deals' in the shop to realise profits are being hit recently). If this continues, we'll have 100,000 - 316 players left who pay to play and out of these, if the next square root of players go (this will be 99,684 square root = 315 players), that will be a further 50% loss...how long before profits are hit and we see some love again? I don't know?

    Anyway - it's all hypothetical stuff Price's Square Root Law but anyone in economics, business and marketing will tell you - it's a proved model of predicting how things can go - in fact anywhere and anything.

    Lots of people are saying that the recent changes are here to protect whales, which are the 50% revenue group in the PSRL theory. So if the forum is right, you just explained why the game will be alive and well in the years to come.
  • @Starslayer and here you are correct my friend.
  • Didn’t realize the whales wanted to do the extra grind feats?
  • No lots of whales are even hurt by all the changes they make the game not fun that's why a lot are quitting. They expect a fun interesting game for their money as we all should. However what has been delivered doesnt match the money they put in and its not fun so they quit. High end guilds are starting to suffer from the losses of top players.

    Not only do we not want to do it the fact that we now have to reshuffle ALL OUR MODS, figure out how to rebalance our rosters for EVERYTHING while being expected to buy new toons (they have a hard time balancing the game? Are they kidding?!).

    If you were a whale you would have hotutils and not care about buying new toons. Press X to doubt on the "we" part.

  • Should have called it a road backwards this time.. u are really letting the community down this time.. why cant u just do something nice for us instead of taking all the fun away. No-body, literally no-body is positive about this changes
  • I wonder what will happen when this game drops under 4* rating on the play store. It's dropped from 4.3 to 4.1 in just the last couple of weeks.

    Surely that is a KPI that managers and corporate look at.

    Read my earlier posts - I am a whale - I am at least $30K in probably more. The only GL I do not already have is Lord Vader and the only ship is executrix. BOTH because I wanted to save up Zetas and stay in the tier 2 GAC (which you shift at 7.8M and I have to remove mods from most of my smaller toons to get my GP down).

    I think you are out of your mind if you think ANY form of mod mechanics is easy to switch around when MANY teams got changed. If you are using Hotutils or Grand Ivory I imagine what used to work isn't always best now. How to mod so many characters differently and to plan for different situations as well (cRancor is different than GAC which is different than SQUAD) in all old situations as well as some of the new ones. Shifting mods around on 200 toons is a nightmare and I don't care how you do it.

    Executrix is a newbie capital ship Mr whale.

    he clearly meant Executor. I'm seeing alot of ppl confuse the two. or their autocorrect confuse the two.
