Edited by jthweatt at 2020-4-5 08:46

A couple of days ago, I was remarking on the posted rewards for the upcoming single-server Tycoon. When I mentioned that the first-place prize included Level 12 Angel Essence instead of Level 11, a server friend very quickly remarked "Well, that's stupid."

She's right, by the way.

I am generally a huge fan of the developers having the presence of mind to advance the rewards in ways that keeps them relelvant. But on rare occasions, it occurs to them to give rewards that outstrip the ability of most players to put them to use.

Disclaimer: I am aware that this game is a business, and that a profit motive is present. I recognize that creating incentives for consumption is the way that this profit motive is sometimes advanced.

But I have no trouble imagining that the great majority of players who might win this prize won't be able to put it to use. Awarding Angel Essence isn't like awarding high level gems. To use Level 12 Angel Essence, you have to have obtained eight Level 11 Angel Essences of the same type. Someone is bound to say differently, but I don't think it's an understatement to say that this is difficult.

Someone has to be the person to step in and take action. I believe that moderators who purport to have the ear of the developers are the best people to do this. But I'm not suggesting that having them dial back the rewards is the right course of action. That would discourage the developers from being pro-active. which is also pretty stupid.

Instead, the moderators have only to insist that now is the time that the level cap on synthing Angel Essence must be raised.

If the new normal is to get rewards that I can't reasonably use, then it's past time for me to go and do something else.

To be clear: urgent behavior is needed here. This is not the time for one of you to reply "We've suggested this to the developers" or even "We'll suggest this, but the developers have the final say in what additions are made." There's no dispute that both of those could be true statements, but I would almost rather receive no reply than receive either of those replies. This is not a time for passivity.

Speaking broadly, players need to know that the developers are going through the effort of improving the gaming experience, or they need to know that the developers aren't going to expend that effort. (Yes, I wrote that with a straight face.) You moderators are really the only link we players have for seeing that done.

Thank you.

being as I am required to respond, and the truth of the matter is that it is in the devs hands, I am at a loss of a creative way of saying...there is nothing more we can do that we haven't already done.

Hello jthweatt, regarding the fact that you would rather receive no reply - we are actually obligated to reply any new post in the forum threads. Also, even if we insist in pushing certain suggestions (which we do) it is still not up to us to make it happen. As LOA players this is equally frustrating for us, sometimes more when we insist only to get ignored.
But this is the "Suggestions" forum section - the meaning is in the very definition of the word - mentioning a possible course of action with no guarantee that it will actually happen like that
