The Trajectory of the Goodgame Protests and Petitions

StarForward2StarForward2 Posts: 24
What does it mean to protest?

-You make your voice heard loud and clear on the forums/facebook/support pages, and make sure- NO goddamn sugarcoating.

-No buying rubies, kingdom resources, or anything of the sort. Remember, each one of GGS's paychecks come from OUR pockets. If we give nothing from OUR pockets, GGS has nothing.

-Change the color of your flag to pink or red to give moral support to the protest movement. We have great advocates and many anti-update activists that reach out and support protestors. We will form a tight-knitted group that will make sure will get what it wants.

-Reach out. Reach out to neighbors, alliance members, and real life acquaintances. Spread the word of our movement. The more unrest and boycott, the lower the ratings of Goodgame Empire become, and therefore, the paychecks of the administrators, moderators, and developers plummet. Hurray!


Future?

There is all the chance that Goodgame Studios will blatantly ignore the unrest and continue to bombard us with their crappy promotions and advertisements. I was once playing Pandora, and a GGS advertisement came up! Beggars! Anyways... If GGS ignores us, we have to realize that we cannot fight with pigs. If we do so, we will get ourselves dirty.

There are numerous amazing games out there that I will start to try out. There is Forge of Empires, Game of War, Strategem, Clash of Clans, and so much more. I do urge many of you that have doubts about this game to simply shut down your account and devote your time to another game with a support system that actually cares about its capital- not a support system that conspicuously begs in the streets of the internet and puts out updates that try to leech the last of your money before chucking you out of their systems.

Seriously, think about this! They grab a player with advertisements, they get him or her to play for a while, and suddenly, at level 25, they will need kingdom resources to advance! They will pay out their pockets, and one day, they will realize- oh goodness! I've been played! Then, they will rage on the forums, say that "the protestors that protested the day that the update came out were right," and then they will quit the game. Their money has been leeched by "our" support.


This is not a pay-to-play game. It is free. Many of us don't want to pay out our wallets to progress. We pay for our fun in the game by giving good ratings and spreading the word. As neither of this will happen if the update is not repealed, Goodgame Empire, is, in effect, screwed.

Pardon my french, but... Get your shit together, GGS...!


Summary

To the Players- Protest, my friends, but in the likely situation that you realize you are protesting to a wall, leave the game, and find something worth your while.

To Goodgame Studios- A five year old could understand this- People angry = people not happy. People not happy = No Bling $. You want the bling, but we are withholding the bling from you. You downgrade our game...

WE downgrade YOUR paychecks.

    Well said again. I am currently trying out Forge of Empires. I don't want to try them all, so would appreciate reading here of others' opinions. I'm withholding mine on FoE until I've tried it (only started a couple of hours ago). Others suggested Sparta: War of Empires as well, so might have a look at that before settling on something.

    I do agree though, that the unfortunate but likely result of all of this is that we've done our dough with Empire and simply have to start afresh elsewhere. As far as I can see, there has been no comment at all from the moderators since the silly "hotfix", so it really doesn't seem as tho GGS gives a flying about us and our protests. Just wish I hadn't stocked up on rubies only the day before the stupid "update". Hmph.

    I dont think they are smart enough to know that people are still VERY serious about leaving the game, however myself and the rest of my alliance is hoping that they figure it out and reverse this. Until then all of us are just wasting time doing things like attacking RB's. But we wont sit like this for long. I hear forge of empires is good.

    Empire, at the moment, is like a plane, set afire, on an endless, downward spiral. With all these boycotts, the only advice I could give you would be to move your alliance or group to another game before you lose contact when GGS does something drastic, or Empire is simply gone.

    I know I'll be making a website.

    Well said - if I was on the board of this company I would fire the CEO instantly for such an blunder. They say that bad advertisement is better than none - but bad experience of people doesnt go away and lingers long. My feeling is they have shot one foot of and the other will go within hours, even if they fix this.
    Whats good is that if the game survives their every change, update or attempt to get more money out us, the players, will be hugely critiziced by an ever growing number of people here in the Forums.

    Very well written peice and spot on...I am putting my name on all petitions, posts, comments etc in support of reversing this ridiculous update. I shall also start looking at other games and if this is not fixed within a couple of weeks then sadly, I will also be one of those voting with my feet.
