you are saying what i have been saying for years,ask how many people i have told that without support there is not enough to pay for a server never mind improvements.
i know the robbing support workshops can be very profitable if you want to rob,not everyone does and i have to join them in saying its unpopular in general and even worse for new players or new gangs to build up.
i don't play many games by the way but BM is ALWAYS linked to my profile
when i can work out how,i think its linked on FB too.
i don't know what to do except what you already said the game has become too complicated? McC when i asked him to come back said "i looked at the features almost like a newbie (he had been away a few yrs) and thought if i was new and didn't realize the help i would get,i would not even think of playing BM"! i took a step back and looked as much as i could through newbie eyes and then looked at all my notes i have and thought "if i knew then i would write so much info down just to even compete i wouldn't have played" luckily i didn't
new players do not contact me unless i contact them first with an open forum and pretty much a walkthrough to lv 10,even when i message them probably a hand full in every hundred reply,some have lasted a set,but in single figures and none have lasted two sets.
the set before last i bought new players guns 7armor,100k lp & paradise hack,plus a truck,they also got 100k for each lv they were when they joined lv 3 min. 500k lv5 & 1mill at lv 10 plus a final 2 mill at lv15 maybe the game could offer those rewards? but it only got me 3 players to lv 15 or better.
you were invited into the first Corleone forum Rev so you may have seen it in our leaders rules where it says something like "new players are more important than any leader,without them we don't exist" well for me the game is more out of loyalty to friends now,you included.
remember when we used to argue about the game
we never got overheated because we were both saying what we feel is right,but in the end i stopped because you are Greek and that means you are not going to move unless you feel like it
i mean that in a nice way.
the 14 turn 3 month set was for everyone not just supporters,all i hear from business these days is"it has to be faster and more dynamic" i thought it was worth a shot,i never forgot the 7 turn 5-10 minute a day game you told me about in Beta,but we are a long way from Beta now.
finally once again the workshops sorry,racing is fine get a breedery and send out basic horses Garfield sold them on the market that was fun ;D,robbing support Balamut is not here now that says something,also unless its an older player with there own income you need a supporter pack,or a part time job/rich parents.
this too is from the heart and not structured as i would like,but its not an essay how i feel is more important.
