Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Senatry] Announcement

I"m a little late…and probably nobody will see this, but I agree with all the sentiments here. This was a good game, but what made it great were the people playing it. I truly enjoyed the interactions with everybody and the way everyone played. I’ll miss the game, but will miss playing with everyone even more!

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Senatry] New GM

Legion, I will not disclose source, but they were more than trustworthy. I don’t lie, never have and look at those who do with disdain. I didn’t fake anything, now would I. Anybody that has been around the game knows I take that seriously, and have always been upstanding. I don’t create drama, but I sure the hell will call those out that do.

Again, we have a failure to communicate. I don’t want the damn job, never did. That was not my point in any of this. My point from the beginning was the process and again the all too familiar lack of communication. The implication was all i did was help a few in my family.

I shake my head as I type this, knowing, the context will be twisted into a narcissistic concept. Will be taken as a personal attack, induce a truly personal outrage back at me, and allow others to cry, oh, poor me, jpenn is picking on me.

It is interesting to finally see an admission that developers basically don’t give a shit, and no new content will be done.

As far as bugs…how about the big one that opening up the armory many times locks the game. Just sits there and spins. I know that’s been reported several times.

Legion, if you are truly talking to the developers, be forceful with them, hound them, question them, express our concerns and actually represent the game players as a GM in a manner that will get some answers.

agreed skiloo….but of course those points are always conveniently ignored or avoided…

fyi, i have spoken up plenty…and bug list??? nothing has been “fixed” in 4+ months, why a bug list.

and funny nothing decided, i have had at least 2 different people tell me that legion told them he had the job 2 days ago. And don’t ever question my willingness to help out. I have been a huge proponent of helping everyone i could, and have been active in chat, and here since day one. I open my plays to all, always help in legions/battles, and always give advice. To insinuate i don’t help, or that i have not been vocal quite honestly pisses me off.

As far as the post title, if the job requirements were posted, as was asked for early on, then maybe the recommendation or volunteer could be done. My issue is it was done half ass at the last moment, with basically a predetermined result. To say anything else is bogus.

You and legion both feel the need to focus on a singular point of no news from developers. Yet, you fail to actually comprehend the point. The point is the GM is the players voice, they are their communication to the developers. That should be their singular function, taking the players needs/questions/suggestions to the developers and getting answers. Not settling for, oh there isn’t anything. That is my point. Personally, i have doubts if their are is a development team at this point, as we all know Aiwent left 8 months ago (or so)….

So i see the “vote for a player” was a formality, and the next GM was already decided before any of this.

A few points… we never were told what the job responsibility of the position were. Other than, someone here a lot, knowledge of game… not sure that constitutes a need to have a title of “GM”

Uh, this is the perfect thread to express your arguments and concerns on the job and the game. As it should be the GM’s job to be in communication with the developers, and express players concerns to developers and to communicate back their intentions. To go months and months with absolutely NO news or communication is unacceptable to me, and I would say is the main reason for slow lack of interest in game. But again, with no defined job description, guess i could be wrong. Maybe the the job title really is just a party planner.

Also, last I checked, didn’t realize a requirement of this game was to make sure you spend time making small talk. If a big requirement was talking in world chat and helping others, then IMO, Paul would be the obvious choice as next GM. He is far more active in world chat, discussing various subjects, and continually announces in family chat that we will help with legions, battles, plays, etc…

Also, Arcanod…. this is just silly… How can in one breath you say you don’t want to speak for others, but follow that with EVERYONE will miss you. that’s speaking for others. No real point there, just found it amusing.

This is really simple, honestly there is no need for a GM, and definitely no need for a GM who has obvious ties to certain families. Personally i have seen nothing gained by the position for the last several months. You don’t need a title to help out. Many do it, without the fan fare or accolades.

Regardless…out of just morbid curiosity, I will be around just to see how this plays out. Kind of like as you pass that wreck on the highway. You know you shouldn’t just look, but you just can’t help it.

it’s hard to know who to suggest, when there isn’t a clear job duty description.

plus, it seems at this point to be an irrelevant topic. this is not a self-sustaining game, there is truly a singular goal, once maps are completed, there is not much to play for in most cases.

With absolutely no communication from a development team, with no new content in an unacceptable amount of time, and with several suggestion/wish lists sent that were simply ignored, i ask, does it really matter who the GM is or if there is one?

I could go on….but my vote is no GM…my vote is for us to actually be told if there is anything being worked on or if the game is done. It’s a simple question, and should be simple enough to find the answer….

Have to vote for Troll. Seems to be the new zombie king of the game. I mean you have to respect someone that is able to take over accounts from others after they have built them up, and keep them straight and use them for the greater good of the family and game…

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Senatry] Suggestion Thread

don’t be so defensive, not everything is directed at you. communication starts at the top, and is trickled down. My reference was to the developers themselves not giving any information or listening to the players.

Why have a game/program, where the developers refuse to listen to feedback from the end user. It’s horrible development practice, arrogant, and frankly the #1 issue with game. Everything else is just a band aid…

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Senatry] Suggestion Thread

not that anything will come of this…since this is the same suggestion list i sent 7-8 months ago…. and there were some good updates and communication for about a month or two, and now, back to nothing. no updates, nobody knows anything going on….blah blah blah…. but anyway, here is my enhancement list, again…

1) Eliminate Family restrictions on legions (just doesn’t make sense at this point. code already has this structure)
2) Better communication. Maybe a weekly email highlighting what is being worked on, and reasons why some things are not being considered.
3) More unique recruitable heros. All the high end ones are RS, it causes an imbalance at higher lvl.
4) More unique monument rewards. Many of the latest ones are just red weapons. A red shield, red ring or orange/red neck lace would be nice.
5) Ability to buy/sell cards. Many cards we receive now will never be used. Does not have to be extreme pricing, just ability to do it.
6) Fix bug that won’t allow arrays to be upgraded past lvl 22.
7) Reward for successfully defending PvP attack… if i’m attacked and i fight him off, i should get prestige.
8) Allow us to recruit at least another hero for 9, or even 10.
9) If a player has been inactive longer than X days(maybe 10?) you automatically move them back to political centers. There are spys in other familes, they make alts, then move to non-political areas to give area away.
10) Possible new bulding…training? If we need to use different types of heros for new map, need ability to train heros faster.

He is still one of the few in the game that i haven’t lost any respect for. He plays the game straight up, helps people out, enjoyable to talk with. He doesn’t find ways to cheat the system, he doesn’t cause drama and bring up the same tired crap every time…..

He plays with style and class….many on the site should take his example.
