With your annoucement now it's clear what i have been saying for long time...
You (RN) don't deserve the community you have... you never answear my post when i ask several times for a second round, and now you just cut functions and servers as you like...
For me, this is the red line in coming times... wish you luck with all the lack of respect you (RN) have for the players that still believe you.
I don't want to be boring to anyone... but as i had no clarification from who should clarify my question, i have some more questions...
But i will start for just one, as i think i will find out once again what i've been saying for so long...
So my first question is:
- Is there any reason for RN don't announce the date to begin the second round at platform X?
I don't want to contribute more to this movie that already stinks...
Why don't the RN staff admit that they failed and messed up as usual?
All players who have come here to give their opinion have seen the information in the German forum (which, as you might imagine, I and many don't read)...
The original ad specifically says that "the first PX episode will have 2 rounds" and not that "all PX episodes will have 2 rounds".. anyone who can't tell these two things apart would strongly advise you to go back to primary school!!
I was also told that this was announced on the live stream, which I followed live, both the first and the second. I went back to watching the recordings and again on no occasion was it said that there would always be 2 rounds in every episode of PX, or that the second episode would have 2 rounds. Only in the first one is it clear that there would be 2 rounds and that's why there is a reference to the beginning of each one. The same doesn't happen with the second episode, which still doesn't have a reference for the beginning of the second round. I wonder why?!
No matter how many questions are asked we are just led to the "deduction" that every PX has 2 rounds!
Many have asked why to insist on the same subject; well I even have an answer; I am responsible for posting on a news website, and if I made a mess like this I would be fired immediately!
But this is not a problem for anyone in the RN because responsibility does not exist; not about information, not about bugs, not about marketing errors. Nothing, absolutely nothing.
I would like to work for a company that has no responsibility for what is poorly done... but that only exists for a few...
Keep up the good work!!!
NO... that information was for 1st "episode" and there is clear a date to start 2nd round.. i saw it and play it according to that.
This time Neww told me/us after we start doing questions to forget the 1st round and look at this one as a new game, because all the difference from the 1st episode.... that sentense is in discord!
So, i think i'm right and will not stop until i get the answer to my questions.
Platform-X Szenario's always has a second round and stop then.
That's the basic of Platform X to try new things and test, if we like it and if it's really good, to implement it on all liveservers.
And where is that information?
Every time i ask i get two answers:
1 - It was post in german forum (only) wich i can't and don't read.
2 - It was announced in live stream, wich is not true and i was there and saw all video again.
So, my question remains:
Where is that information in English forum?
If Platform X is "always" played in two rounds where is the date for second round?
I think you already know what is the problem here: there are 1st class players and the rest of it...
And for the players that know everything i suspect there are more surprises coming on the way... i will enjoy to see it if i'm right...
those dates are for the Crossword Puzzle contest.
Yes... you're absolutly right...
But my question and the reason of the post still remain...
here are the start date of all servers... no mention about a second round in this episode (as RN call it) or a date that would take place (on the contrary at episode one there was a clear date).
It was also said in discord the live stream with Nikki have that information... i saw the video and at anytime there was a reference about a second round in this "episode"...
I have to wait for someone of the staff to answear my question because you're not definitly the right person to do it...
"My problem" is described in post and i think is very clear... there's nothing to do of gold issue... that was just a reference...
Could you elaborate on this?
I did bring up this subject over at Discord (post got subsequently
deleted(hidden in Discord-RN parlance)) but this is the first time I see a mention of this outside RN-Discord.
They start saying there was no chance to transfer gold to PX... after some players (like me) transfer all the gold available they got, RN give a step back and said it was possible to do it...
That situation was discuss everywhere i think...
I regret the tone I will use in this topic, but considering the content I have not found another way to do it. And as I often say, I'm not politically correct.
I don't even know why I'm still surprised by the lack of clarity, ill-founded rules, hidden important information, and why istill trust the RN team.
This is about Platform X, which started with all the mess around transferring gold to the server, unreported changes, etc.
Now it comes to my knowledge that there will be a second round and it will not be possible to transfer any gold from this server to any other until that second round ends.
I looked for all the announcements about this round, and unlike the announcement of the first PX episode where it clearly stated that it would have 2 consecutive rounds, for this edition there is clearly a start date (17 June) and an end date (17 July). Also in forum, i don't find any mesage about a second round.
Therefore, a complete and absolute clarification about this mess is needed. The players who are still around plan the rounds they play according to the availability of time and calendar, and not through the whims of the RN.
Honestly, if this will be confirmed, I feel cheated and disrespected by the RN team, not to mention much worse.
You can't ask the players who stay in the game because of the friendships they created in the game, to continue here with these too repetitive messes.
I'll be waiting for a clear answer and i'm to curious to know who are the players that also knew about this.
Have a nice weekend.
Thanks, naike for your insight. I will forward your feedback. Please note this was a discussion about how the particular feature is programmed and how it works.
It's because of thinks like this you don't like later when players complain... RN have a problem in communication...
" 8. The number of licences available in the auction at the same time has been doubled so that more players can have licences and experience the improved bonuses."
Unless my English is different it says it will be doubled and not dependable of other factors... maybe you can fix it in the next hotfix so you can honor what was said in forum, news and also in livestream... you keep disappointing players that even with all the mess with bugs still stay in game...
I hope so.. and once you have get from the rules the 1.3 point (wich i never have saw and don't know when you add it) and platform X is comming i want to know exactly in wich conditions i can share may login details so i can have my avatar 24h online or close to it without take the risc you come next telling me i broke the roles or worst ban me without any warning...
The rule is there for all accusations. It can be someone claiming the other player is a cheater, multi, or that the person is doing something else which is not true and also for unverifiable accusations such as "support is treating gold payers better", "RN is making rules in favor of a concrete persons gain" etc.
Have a nice evening.
I'm sorry but i have to say this... add "... or the interpretation of others words the way you want..."
You have leave me without answers at almost all my posts till i insist... and keep doing this with all players...
If you don't want to do your job why don't you just go out of it?
RN don't seem to find the right persons to talk with players... we don't want dictators or someone who resorts to threats in order not to be criticized...
Have a nice day...
I’m wrong folks, not too often that I admit that.
RN is completely fair.
Everyone can spend as much money on the game as they “want”.
Everyone can spend as much time on the game as they “want”.
Everyone can devote as much energy into learning the game as they “want”
Everyone can build relationships and teams as much as they “want”
We all play this game under the same rules, just because I don’t devote as much of the above as someone else doesn’t mean they are wrong, cheating, or evil in any way, just that they “wanted” it more than I was willing to commit to.
You need to add there "Everyone can set as many accounts as they want as long as they can play with that..."
Back o the same problem... share login and password details... a team set like that can buy all workers they want and set one player to win...
It is strange that no one of support have say nothing else about this posts and messages here...
By the rulebook at this moment, account sharing is allowed with several criteria though.
1. The people sharing an account on gameworld 1, cannot have access to any other account on game world 1.
2. The same account is played by 2 different people in 2 different game worlds.
If the players keep these criteria they are within the rules.
I will leave the discussion open, but I ask you to keep it nice to each other. We are constantly monitoring all the discussions and as stated by some of you before, adjusting the rulebook as the game evolves. At this moment we don´t consider this to be a problem, any other player by using gold or lots and lots of time in-game without sleep can make the same effort. ( We are not talking about multi accounts but 1 account being active, let's say 20 hours a day as 2 players play on it)
Is this really truth or am i dreaming?
You don't see a problem?... well for me it looks you CAN NOT solve the problem and decide to make a rule to fix it!!!... as usually...
And by the way where is that in the rules? I can't find any text saying that... what i find is that SHARING login details is against the rules... more (and this i'm 100 % sure) you have ban people for this in some cases and let others play all servers doing the same thing, just because they were gold payers...
So please assume that ALL paying players have a different status in the game... That's all...
You have to decide fast what are the rules of this game and make it clear...
You are sidetracking the conversation. If you wish to discuss multi accounts, you do it with game support.
We do not discuss this topic on forum or discord.
You finally answer after i told you at discord i have no answer from my posts...
was not so hard was it?
Even if it is a no answer as you come always with same answer... it's useless to lose time here... sooner or later RN will be history because of you (you=RN)...
Have a nice summer...
Kelot, one of the reasons why the Pollux update was made was to nullify the massive advantage that those cheating by using bots could have over all other players.
A point I made several pages ago, is bots could have been dealt with in a way other than limiting the number of videos to any number. My back seat developer solution is to randomize the center of the pop up screens.
I have no idea if that is a better, cheaper solution to make, but I do highly suspect that my approach wouldn’t have ticked off the very small percentage of players that watch an excessive amount of videos and don’t use bots.
But Travian has made their decision and has made the update, now everyone who wants to compete for something in the game has to adjust to the new way of things. Still the discussion goes on. Maybe with that discussion the next decision Travian makes that effects the game will have more players happy about the change.
I have to laugh with this discussion...
When do you realise RN is not worried with bots playing videos or anything else?
I would like to see the same discussion about multi accounts, shared passwords and other things that are a virus in the game and the really cheaters... but that will never happen as long as they pay... and they pay hard!!!
Look at my challenge in a post before... nobody answer there... that says all...
No further opinions to share here...
We have already discussed that there are several reasons.
You are partially correct, that the video function was not generating tons of revenue.
As we explained before, 1 user watching hundreds of videos is not generating revenue as several hundred users watching few videos.
Video amount / user < Ammount of users / video
We tried to add additional value to the video system with the addition of Polux, which could motivate most of the players to watch the videos.
You have already expressed your thoughts on the video limit ( 56 ) on classic worlds and after our survey results, we will raise it to 80 ( planned this month ).
There are a lot of reasons why the change was done, yes, not everyone might like it, but the statistics are clear.
I'm sure this was not the last time we will see this discution going on... i had my suspects about the real reasons for that limit and finaly now i'm almost sure about my thougts, specialy after i see a post from you at discord... what i don't like is seeing you always trying to get a justification and make us fool...
Let me chalange you with this: start a unic server with no videos in the game... if yo do that i'm sure you will get a conclusion for the company and other for the players... and this doen't mean it is necessary bad for the players... maybe you could get some interest conclusions...
What i think "Stone The Cat" wants to say is what i said in many posts... we (the players) were ignored for to long and you know it's true... you only come asking for help and "logs" because as i suspect you get to much pressure at "Discord" channel and now you have to answer or close it...
It's true that some bugs have long years and as you said and support says, are known... but are known for to long to continue after all this time... and that's the proff you (developer team) can't solve it... maybe because there's no one professional, but only starter programmers (i suspect i'm right)... i just stop reporting bugs to long ago, tired of same answear blaming players...
As i said in one of my posts i'm playing my last round in RN at OJ server... and like me many others... RN is doing everything to close doors and is going on the right direction... i'm one of that players that stay to long for friendship and a success team, nothing else.
I won't give details about players and the team for which they play, it's not even needed, but I will walk you through history a bit.
Three rounds ago on the server I've been playing for more than two years all of a sudden 10-12 new players (never played a round before) start joining this team. They've exhibit the same pattern when upgrading their station, which trains to buy, how to haul, where to lay tracks, everything. It was almost like they had the same mind, right? Keep in mind that these are NEW PLAYERS, completely NEW to this game.
Naturally me and another chair opened a support ticket, Rail Nation says they'll investigate. A week goes by, two, nothing happens. I say to myself, maybe they didn't know how to look, I go and make them an Excel table with all their statistics, I even point to Rail Nation staff where to look to find odd behavior (like time spent online, competitions ran, licences bought, etc).
They go and ask these players about their identity, minor questions, and their response was: "we live in the same house, some of us are co-workers". Imagine how convenient...
I decide to let it go. This seems to be the general feel of some of the players around here.
Of course those players continued to play that round, and the one that came after, and now this week I notice 3 of them suddenly go black dot (inactive) which is odd to happen in the same time for 3 of them. So I decide to flush out the rats and asked my team to silently push their end game city, see how they react.
And what do you know, the rest of them started to activate all of a sudden, 4 of them online in the same time (a thing that never happened), and they all start to nicely spread their investments to keep their RG sites under majority. Two of them investing in Chemicals, rest investing in Machinery, the two RG sites they were managing.
How about that, huh?
What can I do in such a scenario? Open another support ticket only to have Rail Nation ask them about their lives again?
We have to acept this is a lose battle... i'm leaving RN after server i'm playing ends... and more will follow... this is a kiiled game by the owner who will comite suicide... let it go...
