Im going to stop subbing till 7.0 if it ever happens. I wont sit through another 3 year expansion of constant gear grinds, no meta change, and sub par pvp ideas that make a mockery of OG hypergate/NC/CW.
They're like politicians. They tell you everything you want to hear, they say they will not be 'just hot air like the others' and once they get into office, 'things get in the way of their good intentions that they had not foreseen or knew of at the time.' They 'inherit' the effects of the previous office holder and so it's 'their fault' they can't live up to their 'promises'.

It's like the 'gold'/'credit' spammers you see in most MMOs. They never get rid of them or do anything to stop them really because they know that in order to 'ply their trade' that requires a ton of sub accounts. You ban them and you lose substantial monies that are reliable while they are free to do there 'work.'

Businesses are about the bottom line. Period. Everything else is a secondary concern.

They may be 'cheaters', but they are also paying customers.

I suspect that many of those [but not all] who try and minimize the 'amount of 'cheating'/say L2P issues' are either those that are 'guilty', the same person stating it on an alternate account to make it look like more people think it's bs those saying they think there is cheating going on than actually exist or are friends of them.

They compete with the cash shop. More people buying credits from credit scammers = fewer people buying stuff off the CM and putting it on GTN, or so goes the theory.

This is why it's so hard to get a AAA game that hasn't been totally wrecked by a cash shop. Making a good game isn't as profitable as making a flashy time sink and milking everyone. The shareholders want their hockey stick graph and will sling poo everywhere if they don't get it.

Galactic Command 1.0 looked a lot like a blatant grind-till-your-eyes-bleed-or-pay-to-win system where they "forgot" to add the "pay-to-win" parts. Or: upper management was upper management, and local management resisted the only way they could, thinking that way wouldn't cause the playerbase to go up in flames.

A handful of paying customers ruining it for everyone aren't worth protecting, unless they're whales and all the people complaining aren't.

After all, not all paying customers are created equal. If your interests diverge from the company's financial interests, your votes are: your feet, and stirring up trouble.

Edit: If they actually used the amount of money you've spent in deciding moderation reports and the players found out about it, there'd be a firestorm. But the same corporate apologists would be out with "It's their game and they can do what they want with it" and "they have to make money to keep the game running" lines, and it would be normalized by 2025, assuming the game industry hasn't collapsed by then.

This omits "people who think the cheaters really are that good."

April PvP report? It was more like april fools joke.

Fly hacker returned the game after a few days of ban (maybe he had exams or his mom grounded him and took his computer away which is more likely), botter didnt get a single punishment and all his non bot toons has their ratings. So entire report is a joke.

Ask about mid next week. Gotta give them a week to collect all the data and write the report.
Even this thread wasn’t made till April 5th
