This post is basically the Social Point rant, and how they turned the perfect game into the perfect formula... for money and stuff idk.
One: The "Developers" are lazy fat cats.
Note: For any thick people reading this, they aren't actually cats, or fat. it's a phrase to describe some one as greedy and/or money hungry. If you actually though they were cats and/or fat because of this, I have no words other than get an education.
Hello Reader! Would you like to buy this limited time, super amazing, 50% off offer on this random monster you 99% of the time don't care about? No? Well how about you buy this limited time, super amazing, 25% offer on the magnificent nine chests? No? Well how about I pester you about the heroric orbs having a limited time, super amazing, 50% off offer? No? Well how about I fricking shove all these offers in your face every time you log in despite every single one of them being viewable to anyone who cares enough to look to the right of the screen for five seconds.
No one, not one person on the planet, actually cares about your offers. They might buy something because it'll help them and its on offer, but they don't actually care about your offers, social point. They aren't your damn slaves (well, most of them anyway). They aren't thick. They don't need reminding to buy your offers like you own them every single day and every single time they log in. But even worse for me personally, IS THAT IT WORKS?! People, actually pay money to these "developers", just to have a million more offers shoved down their throats. I understand you need to pay money to be of any importance in this game, but you realise there is 5000 other games that don't, right?
Two: On the topic of "Developers"...
They aren't developers, are they? Yeah, they know how to pay other people to code for them, but they aren't exactly "developing" anything other than a 'fricking' scheme to get even more offers available. They don't have ANY passion for what they do. They used too, but not any more. And even if one developer DOES have passion, they'll be outnumbered by those who do not.
If they had passion, they would listen to their community more. They would GIVE the community the things they want (after all, we deserve it for putting up with all the damn offers and chests). They would give us more space. They would give us better PVP. They would make PvE less boring. They would make team wars fairer. They would add new adventure map nodes every month. They would add new achievements. They would add new events. But they won't. They'll just refuse more space and say "They can't" (even though they are DEVELOPERS), they'll just eternally look at how many seasons of PVP have passed, they'll just change the monsters in PvE every few weeks instead of making it more fun, they'll just add a new adventure map island every six months, they'll just keep the achievements the same, and they'll just bring back the same, boring, mostly P2W events because they have no passion to develop NEW things any more. How Ironic that they are known as "Developers"
Three: And even when they do develop new ideas...
They completely screw it up anyway. The Library? Sounded cool, now its just a massive inconvenience for team wars and dungeons. Maze Events? More like "Spend days trying to get coins for the next 11 days or just BUY them. WarMasters? Sounds good on paper until you realise every single one breaks the game and every single one so far is more powerful than the last. The only new thing they haven't screwed up is the fricking CHESTS! I wonder why they spent so much time perfecting it... Because they'd get in trouble if anything went wrong with transactions? Nah, they can just blame that on google play or something stupid, everyone would believe them anyway. In case it isn't fair? Nah, they can just blame that on "the chests are for gambling lol." The only reason they spent so long mastering the chests is because they knew their slaves of a community (not every one, but most of them) would buy one every single time a flashy pop-up appeared saying "Limited Time".
Four: "Limited Time"
What a load of 'rubbish'. Yeah it might come and go once every month, but it will come back eventually, so labelling it as "Limited Time Only" is just another way of getting more people hooked. Social Point have mastered the art of subtle marketing, and whilst they may pull the wool over 90% of the happy and jolly communities eyes, I and many others shall not be fooled.
Five: "Ideas Generator."
Well, this section is a complete joke. The only way you'll even be REMOTELY noticed (let alone taken into consideration) is if you follow one of these points.
One: It's your first post. (We've got to keep all the new comers happy, right?)
Two: Your reputation is bigger than the mass of the sun (in grams).
Three: It benefits them money wise.
Also, if ANY idea SLIGHTLY reduces the amount of gems needed, well screw you lol we're not adding it because of "developmental issues."
Although to be fair, half of the ideas of ideas generator aren't even ideas to begin with. Hell, I found one in the past (deleted now) that was just the letter a wrote about 500 times.
Six: How in the hell did this even happen?!
THEY BLEW IT!
Let's go back to a time where runes, team wars, metal, freeze, NONE of that existed.
Everything was normal. The developers were developing properly. There wasn't 500 legendaries being added. The library didn't exist. Everything was NORMAL. Every one was at peace. The clear blue sky shone upon the valley like a glass filled with perfect water IDK I'M NOT A POET.
Now, What kind of sick twisted individual looks at that beautiful time and goes, "Oh! I KNOW, I'll add a status effect that's acts like stun but can be used over and over and over again for no reason, then I'll make every single monster added a legendary! Then I'll make runes where speed is the only useful thing now and all tactics are lost! Then I'll add team wars which will be cool for five minutes but then I'll add a library to interrupt the general flow by limiting people's freedom of selection! Then, I'll add those 'fricking' CHESTS. MORE AND MORE CHEEEEESTTTTS! Then I'll add a ranking system and spam everyone with BUY THIS RANKED MONSTER FOR 1.4K GEMS!! Oh, wow, I'm a genius, that is such a good idea! Every one bow down to me I'm the next Einstein over here!"
Seven: "COUNTER ARGUMENTS"
BUT DR! YOU DON'T HAVE TO BY ALL THE OFERS U JST STUPD:
First off, that's almost as lazy as me complaining about offers. Secondly, you and I both know that's rubbish. If it was a case of "You don't have too." there'd be hundreds of F2P's in the legendary Ranks and they wouldn't SPAM ME WITH "BUY OUR LIMITED TIME OFFERS HERE" despite me being very able to check the right of the screen.
BUT DR! UR JUST JEALOUS CUS THEY HAVE MORE MONEY!
Yes. I am. I am so envious of the company that ruined it all for some money. I really want to be like that when I'm older. Not just casually slipping a few nice offers in once every month for all my respectable players. Oh no, when I'm older, I'm going to scream at people to buy my stuff and use the words limited time more times that this post uses the words limited time.
BUT DR! THERE IS STILL LOTS OF OPPERTUNITY FOR 3 TO PLAY
Yep. I'm sure there is. In fact, there's so much opportunity for free to play, that I'd love to spend three years just pandaken farming and doing nothing else whilst I have offers thrown at me and see Social Point PRETEND there are hackers in the events with 500M food within the first five seconds to secretly create more competition (which means more money) like the subtle marketing geniuses that they are. That won't anger me and/or raise my impatience/make me believe social point are sly slithery snakes at all.
EIGHT: What to take away from all this.
You and I both know that despite me hating social point's guts, I still enjoy the game and the forum community... ish. But there are some things to take away from this extreme rant...
One: The developers, whether you like it or not, are slowly failing. It might not be as extreme as I have portrayed it, but if it keeps happening, it will go as extreme as I portrayed it.
Two: The community, although slowly, is noticing. How many times have you seen now in the unread section "Fix PVP!" or "Fix y!" or "Fix x!". Now compare that to times where there wasn't as many problems.
Three: I like the Monster Legends community, and I like the moderators, but that does not mean I shall forever continue to 100% respect it and respect them and respect everything on earth and not say one negative thing If I notice something as scummy as pretending there are hackers on your server sided online game with extreme security to save money as part as an elaborate business model to take advantage of the people who made you.
Four: I get very grouchy when I haven't ate in a while
