    I'm not sure what others have because I don't normally read posts, but the new reward system for challenges does not generate enough TG to keep up with the game. At a minimum they should be doubled and the scale graduated at higher levels. If players (such as myself and I've been at it since the beginning) can't make reasonable progress without going into debt, we will lose interest in the game.

    I don't believe the idea of "occupy the forums" attitude I see so frequently on so many threads works. I wish some could be a little more constructive instead of suggesting 'holding a gun' to the developers head, to prove a point. That's such a selfish approach to try to make things better. And not all here react in such a way, but there are some that do. Let's be constructive, and not so much bashing. Has it worked for you lately?





    I'm not, in any way trying to 'bash' this coalition of guilds that make up the GC. I actually agreed with many of the original suggestions that were presented, that brought this group together...but...I did not agree with some of the methods that were presented to affect such changes. I simply have a different opinion on how to ensure we have a say in how the game evolves.......for ALL players, newer and endgame alike.


    There have been plenty of great suggestions made on this forum that are either just ignored or we are just told "it's not going to happen"

    NG should be listening to the ideas of some of these long term top players. They have a lot of experience playing this game, and will make up a very large percentage of the revenue NG collects.
    And there is no way that their suggestions would be negative to new players, on the other hand, I feel that the current changes that NG have made are negative to new players.

    Is @Teeceezy a child... Is he ( Jon ) immature...

    Sorry that you don't understand, that this Board is aimed toward Americans...

    With American Money...

    And we see the " condensing " moderating...


    Ahhh... Disguise the greed and arrogance, with cute vapor badges...


    Oh yea... It's a American Show... And you are Financed by American Money...

    Grow up @Teeceezy...

    [mod edit] Please respect each other & the rules:
    "Don’t argue openly with a moderator or admin. If you have a beef, take it to private messages.
    You may not openly discuss any actions taken against you or your posts by a Next Games moderator, staff member or administrator.

    "
    I am easily confused by other people's, laziness and sloppiness and greed...

    Any guess who might " now " be on my list, ( in 2017 )

    Since everyone seems to enjoy reading articles/blog posts/etc, here are two that I found very interesting.

    Game Developers and the Fans Who Hate Them and

    Why don't video game companies listen to their customers more?.

    The second one is posted below for those that don't like to click links:

    Why don't video game companies listen to their customers more?

    Your assumption is completely incorrect. Game companies listen to their customers and those likely to become customers intently. Game companies pay people to monitor forums and feedback closely. I get notices on my phone in the middle of the night when forum posts meet certain conditions.

    I suspect you are overlooking a few key aspects to this feedback loop.

    We listen, but we interpret. We use a statistical and scientific approach to harvesting quality information from the raw ore of player comments. We very much want the best and most accurate information we can get.

    Science shows, for all manner of Internet product feedback and especially for games, the demeanor is much more negative, angry and confrontational than the average for all customers. What we hear is concentrated negativity.

    The unsolicited player feedback we get represents only .03% of our player base. The few, the loud, the extreme. We also collect feedback from focus groups made up of more mid bell curve players to improve our understanding. We will not implement changes that 14 people want but 30,000 would hate.

    Players do not tell the truth in forums. Player analytics show us exactly how and where people play, for how long, on what difficulty settings. Their successes, failures, trading, crafting, upgrading and numerous other details. When we compare that to what players write online, there are predictable differences. I know other companies experience the same thing. Features that the forums hate often increase player counts, sales and average time in game.

    Conversly, studies have shown that players are poor designers. If you give them what they literally ask for, they like it less. It is a deceptively difficult medium to design for. What works better is to have professional designers make well considered changes based on the issues revealed by analysis of lots of feedback.

    Games companies do listen, but the signal we get is noisy and scrambled. We apply various techniques to tease out the actionable data. That sometimes means individuals do not feel that their specific request is addressed, but know that their statistical influence is.


    As for responses, it's 11 pm in Finland.

    Ya know, never mind. Disregard my question; it doesn't really matter. The drama still isn't worth it to me, and I dont want to be responsible for having this thread shut down over petty bickering.

    I don't play a lot of video games or else I would get nothing done. It's a wonder why I downloaded this one knowing that but the first link is an article about console games and I'm pretty sure that is a one time purchase and not apps with in app purchases. So that link is an apples to oranges comparison and thus not really a valid comparison.

    Next article is written by 1 game developer. That article was biased and the voice of one man. Sorry if I don't put all my eggs in his basket.

    Again we aren't talking about other games or companies we are talking about TWD: NML.

    @MadPuppy , peace.
    I meant no offense, I'm nearly impossible to offend, and I have a thick skin.
    Plus, we were just called clever and well-spoken. Who can argue with that?

    GC: sorry for hijacking your thread. Carry on.

    I meant to pm my respect but since we're out in the open anyhow being cuddly and all: thanks for that post.

    There was a lot more respect in my mind than the subsequent replies assumed from my post.

    Feel free to pm.

    Thanks @Shut_Up , thanks for picking up my point. Those were the two that popped up when I googled.

    I apologize for derailing the thread. Back to GC business.
