First, I would just like to say things are NEVER this black or white. You have created a false dichotomy in order to once again pit small council members against everyone else. I am on the council and have never hid that fact. I think the council and all the other feedback groups are a good thing regardless of who heads them or participates in them. I do not believe that council members have hidden agendas that is ridiculous becase we have ZERO power. We are quite simply a feedback/brainstorming group. Thats it. We are strictly volunteers, we are not compensated for our help, with the exception of a holiday gift of the Master Thief skin at Xmas. We received it an ENTIRE TWO WEEKS before it was placed in the bizarre for purchase! Wow, we should be burned at the stake for accepting that auspicious form of gratitude!
I neither praise Gree nor bash them. I would simply point out that you say Gree is leading the game in the wrong direction and criticize them for how the game works but apparently fail to consider that Gree has only been in charge since OCTOBER. Changes on the scale that are being discussed here take time. There is always a learning curve and I think it is unfair to believe that an entire new team of developers are going to come into this situation and take over running everything without incident or hiccups. Personally, I think Gree has made some great improvements. Remeber when Perblue always gave us advance warning about contests and double drop events? Me either. Remember when Perblue lowered campaign costs and reimbursed us tons of stamina? Me either. Remember when PB sent out SOTG posts and Devs threads? Me either. My point is not to sing Grees praises, my point is simply to say I believer they are trying. Am I happy with the state of game right now? Heck no! Neither is Gree or anyone else. There are tons of things that need addressed runes, war, chat features, rate of level increase, drop rates, new content, etc... The list is endless. Gree asked the council to gather player feedback from our servers for them on all of this and more. We do. We simply relay to the council what players on our servers are saying. We are ears. Ears do not have agendas. We are all players that are addicted to the game as just like everyone else. We are passionate about it and only want to see it thrive. All the dissension among players and community groups only distracts from the important issues that need resolved.. Please, please, please stop with the finger pointing, accusations, and incendiary comments. Thank you for yoru time.
