Has "support" ever actually done anything for you?

Or like me do you get the standard sorry, nothing we can do? I don't think they actually help! So annoying! Let me know if they've done anything for anyone?

    There was a time, over a year ago, during the horrible roll backs. They compensated a lot of people, but it took months and many messages back and forth. I eventually got fair compensation on the third or fourth try.

    After that, they seemed to take a different approach and haven't been very helpful when items are lost due to no fault of the player.

    I lost influence in the early days of outpost with every Login.
    As compensation I got a nice amount of trade goods and gold.
    Don't remember the exactly amount.

    No, but someone else who is NG staff did. :)

    Support is always polite but that's about it.

    They can help with getting your account back, though, so that's a good thing. :)

    @zbot The box came up to use my gold in the trade goods, I closed the box, still game took a bunch of my gold! I closed the Flippin box, saying no! After quite a few exchanges they say tough cookies!

    I think the problem was she lost gold because of a game glitch but no compensation for the lost gold.
    Can any of the NG staff assist?

    I got credited the double tokens I did not receive when they were doing the double token hero event.

    This sounds similar to this

    Yes. I was credited the missed tokens during the upgraded special hero call event on multiple days (i.e. When I got 10 instead of 16).
  • gretchiepooh01gretchiepooh01 Member Posts: 209
    Been there, done that, sorry nothing we can do. I am just irritated with them! I said no! Don't use my gold! Oh well thank you for your input

    Sent another message, explained it better, we will see.

    I've never gotten anything but form letter responses from in game support.
  • tdiddytdiddy Member Posts: 355
    Support usually tells me working as intended, then months later teeceezy posts update notes which is fixing the problem.

    My one experience with them wasn't positive. I sent them a message after discovering the guild advertisement glitch (which STILL isn't fixed btw) where it advertises your guild's score from two challenges ago and not your previous one, even though it says it's from the previous challenge. I had just started a new guild because our old leader went rogue and booted everyone, so we were down a man. Had a really good first challenge even with 19 members, so I bought an ad to try and fill our opening, but after I purchased it I realized it was advertising us as having 0 stars for the past challenge. Sent them a message kindly asking them to refund the 100 gold I spent, and they said it was a known glitch on their end but they couldn't refund me. We argued back and forth for awhile but eventually I just had to stop because I was getting too heated. Beats me why they couldn't just give me back that small amount of fake digital currency in order to make a customer happy, especially when they admitted it was a glitch.

    It really depends on the issue, as someone that's been active on the game issue / bugs, support does a wonderful job.

    Sorry, but that is not the way a support should work. A support should be constructive and helpful at any game issues. If there is no compensation suitable, then be honest and don't just use phrases.
    Be receiving standard answers customers feel unappreciated!
    Yes, I once or twice got back some game resources (can't remember what exactly), too.

    Not under the current regime, they sure have got quicker though but that's due to them using canned replies so not really an improvment.
  • OneLessTitanOneLessTitan Member Posts: 1,273
    For the most part, I've found support helpful. They gave me nice compensation when deadlies were said to be removed from the game, but they were still active and I didn't realize it and lost a survivor in a boneheaded farming for xp and then disconnect issue. I was also compensated during rollback issues, but not to the degree that some people were (people that may have been less "deserving" than me, but in the "right" guild). There were some outpost issues where i was given some trade goods the first time it happened (not on subsequent instances, though). Just the other day they gave me my gold and TG spent on the Class/Hero Token bug in the TG store within a few hours. Still waiting to get my 64 gas that I used today before challenge reset so I can help my guild with our total star count, but I'm optimistic since i'm sure they got a lot of tickets and it happened closer to the end of their workday.

    There have been a few times they were not helpful, including the most useless answer I've ever got from them a few weeks back. But overall, they have been very fair with me in almost every instance. But I don't think I've ever had unreasonable requests: it's not "my game had a minor issue that really impacted nothing but give me 1000s of gold anyways!"

    Support has never really been all that helpful to me. And I feel like I have never asked for anything unreasonable, mostly just answers to questions. Before I started using the forum, I used to inform them about glitches and what not that I noticed. Other than acknowledging that and giving the same response as we get here on the forums, they never did anything for me.
    They were:
    1) never able to help me with my disconnection issues (instead they just kept blaming me and my Internet despite me informing them that everything else internet related worked smoothly including other games and videos etc)
    2) never explained why it looked like my scout was missing out on swift strike (OLT figured it out and did their job instead)
    3) and finally, a while ago when the entire game had crashed and everyone was locked out for a day, for some reason I was locked out even longer...I think I got my game back/was able to access it after an additional day and a half (due to my time zone it actually was 2 whole days) after everyone else got their game back. So I was locked out for close to 3 days. And I contacted support asking if I was able to get any compensation whatsoever and they just shook their head. The weekend event that they had for compensating everyone for the lockout was pretty good though if I remember correctly and that's all they said I would get. Too bad I was BUSY that weekend and could not make use of the event *facepalm*. But oh well, it's just a game so we move on right?

    My point is: I honestly don't think the support can help with much other than getting your game back when lost because they don't know anything. And the compensation efforts seem (to me) to have gone down the drain.

    Support is an ironic name for what they actually do...
    Give answers that have nothing to do with the situation
    Have no idea what they are talking about(highly doubt they have ever played the game)
    Spin doctors would be a better name for them.

    Only time I've been treated fairly, I had to go past support and deal with NG through my guild leader, who contacted NG personally.
    It seems it's who you know, or what guild your with is the only way to get action that is fair.
  • AvengersAvengers Member Posts: 674
    Yup, until I got in the "right guild" I was ignored by support for MONTHS!!! Some people would get a reply in a couple days, some in a week but I had to wait for a couple months when I was a beginner. It's all about who you know
