There's no point to mature summary. Or to outline the effectiveness of the games future. This has been done in years past. Back when the forum was populated by a large number of intelligent and capable people. not saying there aren't any left. Just saying there where a hell of a lot more before. And they couldn't even reach toonces.
So in all fairness all i have to say to people who still bother with actually trying to voice their opinions:
- Move on to another game. You'll find that the break is a good thing.
- Just let their empires die. No amount of money spent on a game can equate to the time you lose not enjoying something. Defeats the point of actually using money.
Toonces will find other players for the game to fill the gap. Most of the people on this forum are such players, when we all said the game was dying. Turn this game into a 2-4 week thing every year, when your corp unites and you hand out beating to the newbs of tomorrow. You'll enjoy and they will enjoy it.
I'm beginning to realize this too.
Toonces is like a blind, deaf donkey about to go off a cliff: you can't convince him to stop walking (he can't hear you), but if you dangle a carrot the other way he will start coming back to safety.
He's not going to want to sift through page after page of long opinions. The few times he listens to players are when their demands are simple, easy to implement, and have a benefit for him. Case and point: Toonces making RoP for Kasonia and FW for Johnnyc - he thought it'd make people happy, it was easy to do, and he'd make money from token sales.
Any suggestions we make nowadays would have to be short, sweet, and simple if we want even a remote chance of them being heard. And it's still a big if.
