The Real Rant
Season 4 - Episode 04: An Open Letter Volume 2
The only thing that was left for us is our voices and i am planning to overuse it until my fingers will bleed on the keyboard.
why are you doing this?
Why are you rushing a product to its demise so fast?
Why are you implementing things that nobody asked for?
Why you are never listening what the players have to say?
Why do you always try to fix something that is not broken?
Why you are never asking the players' opinion on certain topics?
Why does it always have to be on your terms?
Why do you always take one step forward and two steps backwards?
Are you not aware that you are hurting in-game's trading mechanism and economy?
Are you not aware that you are forcing the game to become stale?
Are you not aware that all your latest decisions are for the worst?
Are you not aware that players were not, are not and will not ever be willing to pay for tickets in order to participate in events that are rewarding irrelevant booster packs?
Are you not aware that players are rooting for your participation in a dialogue about the game's future but you keep holding us waiting on the door forever?
Are you not aware that a simple feedback thread means nothing unless you actually comment in it?
Are you not aware of any of this?
Forget about The Real Bug forum gimmick that i have created in order to create some buzz and draw attention to my threads.
My name is [Edited by Mod_Jynthu - Sharing personal information is not permitted] and i am a 29 years old Pokemon fan from Greece.
PTCGO is a game that i have not stopped playing since the day that i discovered it, a game that drove me away from the toxic enviroment of Steam games and a game that helps me relax while i am listening to my favorite music.
As a player, i am often offended by your stance and i am questioning myself equally often of why am i still playing a game that i do not enjoy as much as when i was starting it.
The answer is simple, i love
pakermon this game.
As a kid i did not have the proper chance to participate in the frenzy of trading card games so when i found out about PTCGO i knew that it would be a game that i would login daily.
I did not choose Magic The Gathering, i did not choose Yu-Gi-Oh and i did not choose Hearthstone.
I chose PTCGO because, for me, it is the mother of all card games.
It is amazing how a game written on Unity player has so much to offer, gameplay wise.
So what is wrong with the game is not the gameplay, the game engine or the code that is written on but its management.
You can not have a healthy connection between the developers and the players by having close to zero interaction within the empty official forums, a customer service with copy-paste policy and by turning the tables every 3 months by performing drastic changes without asking anybody.
That is not how it works.
You do not have a dedicated community manager? Assign this task to some of the top posters within our community.
You are trapped under the umbrella of the mother company's policies? Release an FAQ about certain things in order to help the flooded with complaints Customer Service.
You need help with interaction with the playerbase? Use the PTCGO streamers as mediators.
For every problem there is a solution but only if you are willing to try.
My thread may be boring to read but it is my honest opinion on what is going on right now with PTCGO.
please take a moment and read this.
In the end of the day, even if nobody from TPCI will read this, i will not stop sharing my opinion until someday somebody will care about what i am writing or until the day that you will announce that you will be discontinuing PTCGO.
And when the latter comes, because it will someday, i will be still here to tell you "i told you so" because you will be discontinuing PTCGO not for not being much of a draw as a game, but you will be discontinuing it because some of your decisions will eventually be the coup de grace.
Mark my words.
