Topic: Rise of Mythos / Reasons players might stay ?

1- Already spent a lot of money on this game. Sunk cost fallacy.
2- Spent little or no money, don’t really mind getting hacked, are ‘having fun’ in the game.
3- Think things will improve in the future, even though they’ve been just getting worse.
4- Pvp. Need to rank in top 32 to join dick-waving tournament at the end of the season.

That’s all I can think of. Are there any other reasons players might stay?

Topic: Rise of Mythos / STOP with making cards

Making suggestions on the forums is pointless. Even if gamefuse would read the suggestions and wanted to implement them, they can’t, because they aren’t the actual developers and this game is a Chinese port. Just so you know.

I don’t remember if I made it to both on time, but I won at least once. Should just give everyone on the server 200 gold, I’d say.

Looks like they’ve brought in some muscle from China to handle the situation. Whoever wrote this does not have a good handle on the English language.

Hi guys,

We’re looking into the issue with our engineers now. I’ll make sure to keep you all updated as we learn more.

Thanks,

It’s kind of funny. I advocated that you guys be more active and responsive in the forums, which you’re doing and I’m sure is appreciated to some extent, but it’s starting to get a bit silly. I’m pretty sure you’ve said the issue was fixed on like 4-5 different occasions in the past few weeks. Maybe you should frame your posts as:

“We’ve pushed another update through meant to solve this issue. If you’re still having problems, please let us know as soon as possible. We will be monitoring the situation closely, because it’s important to us that only the account owners are able to access their own accounts, and nobody else.”

This would give you some room for failing to fix the issue once-and-for-all, while still showing that you’re trying to get it fixed, and that the issue is important to you. You don’t need to use the same exact words, just find a better way to frame your posts so that they wouldn’t be so certain of success.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Gold strike - Fire opals

Quoting myself from the maintenance thread, where I discovered something interesting and relevant:

This gold rush event is not what we meant “for free”, it has nothing to do with what i said in this post. lol Actually we are still designing that free event and will come out soon in the future :)

Designing an event where you can get fire opals for free, eh? I hope it wasn’t this one, because this is one where you removed the fire opals for possibly-free.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Steam Group for Strategy Card Games

I actually was writing up a short one before the last thread got locked up, don’t think I feel like doing it again since the post was lost due to the lock after trying to submit. I figured it would be best to just mention a name and nothing else to lower the odds of this thread meeting the same fate as the last.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Steam Group for Strategy Card Games

Yeah, it was pretty obvious that your review would get removed since you’re posting ‘competition’ in the forums controlled by the people running the game. I was going to warn you to save your post, but then I took too long to post mine, and yours went poof. If you have the power to prevent your players from finding a better game than yours, wouldn’t you try to stop them too? It’s not like gamefuse wants anybody to have as much fun as possible, they aren’t in it for the benefit of gamers.

That being said, War of Omens.

On a related note, I never noticed much of a ‘community’ here in the forums themselves. There’s some back-and-forth and some humor at the expensive of our overlords, a bit of watching them screw up / ignore the issues until the shit hits the fan, but not a lot of regular faces that contribute to the community in some positive way. I did what I could to help people log in during the notorious Week of Darkness, and have my wall-of-text Winning Sieges guide that was pinned by Trine shortly before leaving the company, but I wouldn’t say I’m a part of some community here or anything, because I don’t see it.

yeah, as a vip0 i don’t really care about lucky draw, for me it’s only a way to get 10-30 fusing materials. i play this game for about 6-7 months, and i’ve only got 1 or 2 epics at lucky draw.
One of the most unfair things about being vip, isn’t the packs, it’s the lucky draw. i mean, come on, i’ve seen people getting legendary cards at lucky draw, getting a legendary for simply logging in and clicking to draw a card, when vip0 people have to suffer a lot to get a single legendary(i’m level 58, almost 59, and have only 13 legendary cards).

If it’s any consolation to you, they can only get 1.0 legendaries from lucky draw, and almost all of those suck. The exceptions being Ecann the Charger (which seems to be gone from the meta), and Mifizuna the Wind.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Reasons players might leave ?

I quit due to the lack of meaningful strength progression. Was waiting for fire opals in tower shop for months, because those would have finally made doing the tower and collecting silver worth a damn. Naturally, the only thing they failed to add in the update was the only thing I even wanted.

Apparently you either have to spend $200 to get some legendary card versions of epics, or else you just don’t deserve to have them.

Quick note

and hold onto them as long as humanely possible without getting yourself killed.

This would mean holding onto them as long as it was not infringing on their rights or dignity. I think the word you were looking for was humanly. :P

Topic: War of Omens / Purple probably needs tutorial

I mostly had them figured out after a few GM games (and then pulling the hero and actually playing with it solved the rest of the mysteries), but I do agree that they would benefit from a tutorial considerably. Some people enjoy trial-by-fire, but others might feel frustrated or cheated.

Hopefully they’ll give you back your stuff, but I think gamefuse has shown that as a company, they are not responsible enough to have money spent on their games. In any case, even if what’s yours is returned, take this as a sign that they do not want your or anyone else’s money enough to actually do a halfway-decent job on security.

Actually, that’s not what was said.

What was said was, “Also, we heard that lots of players cared about whether the Fire opal will still be for sale in tower shop. The answer is no. But we’ll put it in our future events and you may get it for free.”

We’re still working on figuring exactly what events this will be appearing in. I also realize some of your are quite upset about the incorrect patch note. Please understand that sometimes, the developers will make a call like this after sending over the patch notes. We’re just as disappointed by this as you all are, and are working with the devs to improve the situation as best we can.

Thanks,

Stormshade

Oh no you’re not, not by a damn long shot, and I find it offensive that you would try to have us empathize with your team. I’m sure Gamefuse or Gamebox or somebody can get a natural feature added back into the game since so many other versions of the game have it, including the original Chinese version from which ours is ported.

It sounds to me like you’re saying the team that sends over the content decided to take this feature out (at least that’s what you’re implying), because they thought you could make more money with it out of the game. Tell them we know about this feature and we’re really really pissed off that we didn’t get it, and that there are people boycotting making purchases as a result. Maybe that’ll change their minds.

+1. Haven’t bought a single gold since 1.5 came out, and have been spending more time complaining than any other RoM activity.

u realize they did answer that question though, just on gamefuse forums. the answer was they didnt know, big surprise lol

That was an answer 14 days ago, and they said they’ll look into it. Man, if it’s taking them two weeks, they must be looking through the source code line-by-line for their answer! /s

The only lines anyone at gamefuse knows anything about is the lines of crack they inhale from the game’s profits instead of investing some of that into bringing new content a little faster, or having customer support, or not screwing up every other event.

Lol, I see they updated its description so it no longer says its available in tower shop….seems we got our answer…

Wow what assholes. Seriously, i hope they still are coming.

Almost certainly not. If they went through the huge amount of trouble that it takes for them to change something within the game (not because it’s hard, but because these guys have no idea what they’re doing), it’s not going to be for nothing.

“Re: Fire opal
We’re looking into this now gang. Hang tight. It’s possible this will be added to the shop in a future update, but I’m working to confirm if this is a bug or intended with our QA and dev teams now.

Cheers,

Stormshade"

Apparently if they are even going to be in the shop is still up for debate according to him…

The fact that we haven’t heard anything new since this likely means he either forgot, or he asked the QA team and they’re like “Yup, intentional. We think we can get more money this way,” and he/they decided the whole thing would just blow over if they stayed silent and didn’t follow up.

Hotshot, they changed it last time when our season was extended to 4 weeks, I am sure they will be willing to do it again

Not because we asked them to. Although if I’m wrong about that, and you could find a link or links that make it pretty clear, I’m open to the idea of eating my words.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Censorship - the 'forum observation' we asked for

So many players have complained about the fact that Gamefuse is about as transparent as Fort Knox, and that we would appreciate it if their community managers would at least pretend like they care about the issues we have by reading the forums and responding to issues where appropriate.

Well, I have good news for you all, they are now paying at least some minimum level of attention to the forums. How do I know this? Did they actually reply to the many legitimate concerns and criticisms posted on the forums? Not a chance; instead, they deleted at least one thread of a player who was quitting, along with all the posts contained therein (mine being among them). Well, we got what we asked for, a little attention. Hopefully for the next step, they’ll stop trying to censor dissent as a method to prevent their player base from realizing that a lot of us are fed up with their bull and aren’t willing to have it any longer.
