I wasn't sure if a guy who quits the game should make a post about it. i ultimately decided to do so, and unlike supertramp, I wont be coming back.
mostly I posted to just say why, so that maybe people can relate to my issues and possibly they can be worked on to prevent further loss of long term players.
I started playing the game in march and it has had me hooked ever since. I was hopeful for new experiences and the for the most part I did. However it was only the social aspect of the game that kept me hooked. As the experiences continued I realized that they became less unique and more repetitive. They attack, I attack back. I take a zone with a nano, they take it back with nanos. Nothing truly kept the game unique, with no incentive to make different decisions. No true goals except for meaningless awards and pointless leader boards that showed distance from other players rather than skill level.
My first encounter with support@qonqr ended horrible as well, being blamed for the fact that I deployed on Christmas UST 13 times, while only have deployed at 830 local time Christmas eve. I do not follow twitter nor Facebook, and have not been as active on forums. The messaging system which you all know is unreliable at the best of times did not show I had a new message which qonqr had broadcast. I assumed that they would take understanding as I am a loyal player and did not launch for the 24 hours in my time as the award specifies.
I feel as if the needs of continuous players are being ignored. We need new gripping things to keep us involved in qonqr other than web comics, we need to know that we are important in the game. These requests have been asked for REPEATEDLY and IGNORED. I am not quite sure about you, but when I start to feel like a number rather than a player, its GAME OVER.
