A (likely) farewell thread.

Postby Butters1919 on Sun Jul 28, 2013 9:33 pm

Here is a slightly edited message I recently sent to BMO:

I set up clones of previous battle royale's and you killed them. They were almost full, suggesting your paying members want them, including me.

Why kill what your paying members want?

I may be done with this site. The new leadership seems unwilling to engage in even discussion with what the revenue stream wants. In addition, you've f***d up pay in tournaments (conquer cup 5), you've f****d up non pay-in tourneys (havoc boards) by inviting hoards of inactive members... what's next?

You opened up a "updates tracking thread". Thanks for keeping that up do date.

Signed, a disgruntled paying customer.

I thought we ended up being fairly cordial at the end of it all. I personally hope that you stay!

Would be a shame to lose a member of your calibre

Maybe you need to head to the suggestions forums and suggest we make BR's more regularly available? The community is not without voice, but unless it's in the appropriate section of the forum, it is more than likely going to go unnoticed. I suggest you make the thread and gather the support of the masses. let the powers that be know what you want.

I'm not going anywhere. That was a rant of anger that should have been allowed to chill for an evening!

Gillipig, your side is the least appealing side available.

You mean the forum where there is a suggestion that has had significant community support and has been an accepted change to be made for more than seven years but hasn't been implemented yet? I'm afraid that forum supports what Butters is referring to, rather than being a method to correct it.

You say that now but soon darkness will grab you, and then, then little butterman, you will see the appeal of team Gillipig's ideals. In the end you will be begging me, begging me to let you join my side.

The thing that makes Battle Royales special is that they are rare. Personally, I think they made too many last time they did it, despite me participating in many and even winning one. The person who won the first ever Battle Royale must have felt really special, and he is, because he was the only one and it was the first. Now, it's not so exclusive anymore. To be able to make them at will would destroy the purpose, especially if it was left exclusive to those who were in the game.

I agree with this. The reason why people love them, is because they are rare. Being able to play an unlimited of them will just make the Conqueror's title more useless then it is, same with actually obtaining a good rank.

What would you suggest happen for the anniversary? Can't really do BR's, because, people can play them anytime they want. My creative imagination isn't that amazing, but I can't really think of anything.

And it's not like this is the first time they deleted games created through a "loophole". Users created games on closed maps a few years ago, and any that were up were deleted.

I'm going to go ahead and call you a liar (perhaps you'd like to prove me wrong?), because I'm always more than happy to point it out. Here you go:
