    I've played mobile games where a top alliance took a break from a certain event because they felt the rewards were unfair. But in that game there were several events (4); 2 of which were alliance based. War or Raid. People joined a top war alliance because they had deep pockets and could meet the minimum each month.

    As time went on the rewards got stagnant and the top alliance made a stand at going on strike.

    The result of said strike was that many players from that alliance whom enjoyed playing that event went on to join other alliances whom continued to play. The players had built awesome decks that cost a lot of money and to not play the one event they based their decks on was futile.

    Often alliances are run by a few people who get together in the decision making process. In the game this happened in, similarly had 1 leader and 4 "elders" but alliances consisted of 40 players. Over half joined other top alliances who continued to play and the leaders were left without alliance mates.

    That game sunset 4 months ago. The strike I'm referring to happened a year ago. I guess what I'm trying to respectfully say is that the game went on. This game is different in the sense that alliances cap at 20 but although the rewards have been nerfed it's still rewards.

    Im not in a top alliance. But I can imagine by reading posts in different parts of the forum that top players typically have everything maxed. So the gas either goes to xp to level up items found, or to challenge missions to have a title of a top ranking ally. There's now 2 days off to get xp.

    Maybe im not at the level of playing where I have to explain to strangers on the Internet why my alliance name doesn't appear on a leaderboard.

    @DarkFae don't you think you are derailing this (again)?

    But back to topic: nobody expects to NG to fulfill every player's wishes. And I'm pretty sure they noticed already that the change to one challenge a week was welcomed whereas the reward structure needs to be worked on.

    As far as I experienced in my life most companies are glad when they are able to gather customer's feedback without paying for it. So just please let everyone state his point of view even if you disagree.

    Calling an idea retarded is not a valid argument by the way...sounds more like an insult. Just like doubting someone's adolescence or making jokes about people's genitals.
    Guess NG meant something different when speaking of friendly banter in their rules.
    You should ask a mod to clarify that ;)

    @Capleton

    No I don't think that I'm derailing the thread (again). I think they are choosing to derail their own thread by insulting people and calling people names.

    They are free to state their opinion in any one of the 50 other threads about the topic. There is even a poll.

    Why is there a need to start yet another?

    Sorry but I am not able to find something like insults or calling names. Only the things I mentioned before.

    On the other hand, you are the one calling people names, @DarkFae . I just don't get how haven't you already been banned. I assume the insane asslicking is the only reason you're still here.
    Vault members have stated obvious issues, which normal and reasonable people agree with, or, if not, they state their opinion and/or a possible solution. And then there's you with your ''Grimey has a small penis, haha''.

    When the return to 1 challenge per week was announced, it was welcomed by most as a step forward, and I still think this is case. Clearly what needs addressing is the dificulty level, I have ploughed through countless maps so far, and have now broken 50 stars on most maps. The most challenging thing so far was getting a charactor bruised so that I could drop a star.

    It is not possible with 1 difficulty level to make the challenges rewarding and "challenging" for all.

    Hopefully this will be addressed in the next major update, allowing us the choice of playing maps that are appropriate for our player level, and similarly providing appropriate rewards.

    I wish you luck with your strike, however I believe that it is far better to resolve things with reasoned discussion.

    Cheers, @cionz
    We appreciate the support!

    @bun totally agree with you.

    Problem with the challenge is to find a way to make them challenging for the higher level players without endless repeating low level missions while beginners should be able to play some rounds without getting frustrated.

    @The_Vengeful_1 @Capleton

    Yep lets make this all about me because that in no way is derailing your own thread....You need to get over yourself because what you think of me doesn't matter to me because I am able to communicate without being toxic.
  • The_Vengeful_1The_Vengeful_1 Member Posts: 102
    @DarkFae Off topic a bit there, eh?
    We were talking about calling people names, which you have a masters in. ;)

  • [Deleted User][Deleted User] Posts: 2,344
    @Capleton stated that calling people retarded is not an insult and you accused me of having a serious problem. Both of those statements are incorrect and since they were directed at me and I was tagged in, I responded. If you want your thread to stay on topic then don't pull it off topic by trying to pick a fight with me.
  • The_Vengeful_1The_Vengeful_1 Member Posts: 102
    Meh, whatever, there's no point in arguing with you. You can't provide us with a single reasonable argument regarding the actual topic.
    You do you, NG. Keep the trolls, ego-maniacs and bitch-like-attitude people around, but ban the ones who actually have a point, and are stating important issues that should be resolved.
    All hail Grimey.

    @jester Good luck with that, there aren't any. ;)

    @DarkFae I didn't start anything. Just explained my point of view without being toxic or trying to start a fight.

    But after reading the thread again...only on topic from your side was calling the idea retarded.
    So thank you for your input.

    @The_Vengeful_1 well if thats how you feel it's Next Games' playground so maybe instead of striking maybe it might be a better choice to to leave and go find another playground to enjoy elsewhere. No reason why you should have to suffer here so needlessly with all that taking place :)
  • CapletonCapleton Member Posts: 441
    Yup @jester. Obviously there is no puppet master holding the strings and whoever is afraid of loosing his spot on the individual leaderboard is still able to play ;)

    So it's not really a strike? What's the point of all this then?

    "As a solid unit, we have unanimously decided to cease challenge star chasing and personal leaderboard goals."

    Lol. So bored with the grind I haven't even read these entertaining forums in a couple months. Too bad it costs so many people so much money and/or emotion to finally conclude that all the time and money invested get you no further ahead. Well other than some leaderboard that only lasts as long as your time and money.

    I keep checking in with the hope the creators can at least make the grind less tedious. And playing since the beginning, I have seen and bought precisely 1 package that felt reasonable. Pretty much all them just feel like a huge money grabbing ripoff, not an income source.

    I understand what you're saying. We don't need to be remembered though, it's a win either way. We don't play the challenges until the rewards are adjusted so we aren't wasting time worrying about it. We play other parts of the game and get stronger and come back, or we don't ever play them again. It's a win for everyone, really. Why waste time doing something that has little reward?

    We aren't striking the game. Why aren't we welcome here? What have we done to not be able to post here?
