Lately we seen a lot of slack in your team's work.

Amongst them, and just to name a few, we had multiple delay on Road Ahead, radio silence on Finn's zeta, updates without patch notes and lately, territory war announcements with bonuses that don't show in game.

We are confused by the lack of seriousness in your work. It clearly shows leadership is lacking in your office to keep a steady and rigorous gameplan. If you make a promise, you have to keep it.

The lack of communication we saw in the past is resurfacing again, yesterday I cycled through forums and on 5 pages of general discussion, none were answered by Devs except previous sticky announcements.

I wonder if you guys are just letting go the game and moving on to another project as I tought this game wasn't dead and still had shiny years to come. Now I doubt if I should still invest time/money in it and I know we are a majority of invested players beginning to think the same.

    The game has lacked good leadership/direction for almost 18 months. This isn't exactly news.

    I am trying to be positive here! But yea, and its getting worse!!
  • i also want to know if the game is on the decline. i wonder if cg would ever produce a timetable for when their involvement with the game is projected to end?

    Radio silence on Finn?
    Tw bonuses not working?
    And oh noes the road ahead, which tells us nothing is late?

    Lol is op srs?

    Let me help you understand

    Finn's zeta: the only update we had on Finn's zeta was weeks ago saying "oh sorry the changes we planned to make have a global impact we didn't expected and we are going back to design something else". Since then, radio silence.

    TW bonuses: look in game, the TW looks just like a Vanilla TW "just like the one we played since the beggining"

    Am I the only confused by this? No

    I would also add the announcement requesting feedback led to a broken link and closed thread... Maybe they didn't want feedback. You can use this thread player created for feedback but after 128 posts in it, no Devs dared to show up.

    And yeah, when was the last road ahead delivered on time? The first and secomd one only. It tells us anout whats up in the next quarter. I guess it only tells us whats next in the mext two months and if it keeps getting delayed, maybe in the next month.

    Oh and that leads me to this, before anyone adds it:

    The monthly "Chalendar" being released after the month as started!

    On top of all that you know zero,absolutely zero testing went into sith raid. Han as a login character and he’s the first loop. Lol
    Then rey,NS and now Finn. Such an embarrassment for a dev team to keep plugging holes amd they are running out of fingers.
    Honestly none of use could make this many mistakes and still have a job yet alone still get payed for what we do.
    Hey CG you hiring!!
    I’ll come and sweep the office with a rake and actually do more work then the developers and you can pay me thier salaries.
  • I don’t think the game is even close to being on the decline. It’s making millions a year and EA only cares about money lol

    Crumb said earlier today that he plans on releasing the road ahead this week (within 4 days). This TW has no bonuses. I think they are quiet on Finn zeta because there is nothing concrete yet or they'd rather let us know as soon as they implement a fix in-game rather than letting us know early what they are trying to do with C3PO/zFinn/STR

    Thanks for your input.

    Just saying the road ahead were planned to be released at the beginning of each fiscal quarter not in the middle of them. Just like monthly calendar are supposed to hit us before the month's already started (they got it in time this month - not that I care much about the calendar anyways)

    As for TW, they said it would be a TW like the ones we did since the beginning, without Special bonuses but we expected the usual ones to return. That was unclear.

    They said the opposite for Finn zeta, they wanted to let us know in advance what they were planning to do and that they would priorise this. I hope something is coming soon ;)

    Anyways, overall, I am more concerned about decreasing commitment to communicate with us on forums than anything else. Those are just examples depicting my concerns.

    While I do share some of the frustration of these points, to be totally honest the communication in this game is much better than most I have played. We are just an impatient species (especially my wife) and want instant gratification and knowledge...it will come soon enough, patience young padawan

    I agree something is up with the Devs and owners of this game. I get a sense they are in a state of putting very little into the game and in low end maintenance period.

    Yea, I sense something similar. I've had previous experiences in the past where they turned a game ina money cow and invested as little as possible, reducing cost to a maximum... After a while it gets very boring for the player base and it only capitalize on newest players. Looks just like it to me, using the same techniques trying to squeeze as much of big players before they leave and not adressing important issues and concerns, leaving forums without any replies.

    And yea, it looks great, but this game is produced in Israel and I boycott any products from there because of their treatment towards Palestinians 😭

    Get 'em OP, lol

    I think you're taking this game way too serious

    So people aren't allowed to know whether they're time and money is being spent well? He just wants to know if his time and money investment is in a game that will continue to bring him enjoyment, or if it's all coming to an abrupt end. Oh no! Someone wants honesty! Not that!

    Maybe you didn't read the post carefully? OP has too many over the top comments that are often backed by opinions. Like what authority does he think he has? It's laughable.

    A few of my favorite lines....

    "It clearly shows leadership is lacking in your office to keep a steady and rigorous gameplan."

    What? This is just stupid. OP doesn't have a clue about the internal workings. Just because it's not clear to OP doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

    "Now I doubt if I should still invest time/money in it and I know we are a majority of invested players beginning to think the same."

    I don't think OP is the emperor of the "majority of invested players" nor understands what they think. There has been zero indication the game is going anywhere. The game is strong as ever and that includes spending. I think one of the gamechangers even did a video on it.

    Overall, OP just needs to take a chill pill and be patient. He hasn't been around that long as his opinions make that obvious.
  • Too funny....
    “low end maintenance period”
    —> A game with near endless character releases, new Legendary characters (and ship) - that most people struggle to keep pace with!
    You guys do realise this is a game? (And not Real life?)

    It’s posts like this (and some of the replies) that make me realise I’m not yet too far down the rabbit hole —> although my wife would argue otherwise :)

    Most of the technology in your phone and electrical systems has some part of it developed in Israel.

    Live up to your convictions and boycott your phone.
  • another whiney unhappy player. What else is new?
  • "If you make a promise you have to keep it" did you keep all of your participation trophies too bud?

    An abrupt end would not afford him time to whine on forums about if its ending or not. Itd be "abruptly" ended.

    As far as "investing" your money payed into this game is a point of service purchase youre not buying a future.

    Well, I think this is really new here, I can't remember that we had 'Israel-Problems' with swgoh before...

  • I have been pointing out at facts. I see the most pleasant members of our community just woke up and did what they are the best at, bashing at people on forums. You are not worth a reply not even a quote so move along you are not needed here!

    For the constructive and/or fun comments:
    @CHFC22 my negativity being turned in positivity was positively sarcasm 😜
    @VaexquaGer hopefully I am not alone on this path, wherever the opportunity is
    @daniel_dacejoy on those words of wisdom, I would add I could never be a true vegan

    Alright pals, keep up the smile, it's not worth a tear.

    You mean members of the community are bashing on you like you are bashing on the devs? So uncool....
  • The game is doing just fine. Cubsfanhan made a video showing the game was making 10 million a month or something like that.
    However, I do understand the concerns you have because the communication from CG has greatly declined. It does not mean the end of the game but it does seem to show a lack of interest in the player base opinions.
    It was about this time last year where they promised to improve on communication but, that seems to be unobtainable.
  • We've a different definition of fact.

    I’ve always noticed that when devs are quiet, they are working on something. A new raid, game mode QoL or characters take time. And most of the time all the bugs can’t be ironed out till a few hundred thousand players have a chance to try everything out.

    They’ve been behind on communication, but I don’t expect them to tell us all the surprise content that could be coming. Maybe just some QoL updates and future marquee character hints.

    In the forums, Remember that sarcasm is hard to interpret. (That’s why there are emojis ;)) keep having fun and always be respectful to others.
  • Anyone else find it odd that OP is bashing on the transparency for the future to continue his "investment". However, currently has a 5* Traya, Gear IX BB8 &Thrawn, and a Gear VIII Sion?

    ...ignoring the new KOTOR characters, I'd think this supposive downtime would be a good time to worry about these and hope new content is a little ways out to catch up.
