Hello Gree,


A long time there was no community communication with the people here then Bolt comes and things was a little better. Now bolt is banned? Any comment why?

Not exactly... Tadaaah does FB posts and A&F went to the design dept or another job at GREE, and they both still kept their forum accounts. Even LFizzle still has hers, remember her?

This is the first time I've ever seen a mod banned.

Because they did the layoffs before deleting mod accounts. So they banned them. Really sad and poorly managed company. Certainly doesn't help when micromanaged from Japan as well.

Revenues obviously r down. The original new mgmt that took over funzio promised the world to their owners and managed for very short term results (stat inflation etc). They bought time for new products of which only WON has succeeded. That team quit and r starting their own app company.

You have to wonder how long these games will be around. CC, KA, etc managed for just cash flow

Common Sirius is this your only answer? As an Admin you should know that its no good answer to say please keep your mind with the guidelines this is a joke. And you will have soon more information? You are Admin?! You should know what is going on in the Forum. first thinking, then communication the things and then make the things. But you always do things then customers are asking and then there is no or a bad communication. Think about this.

Sirius
07-20-2015, 03:56 PM
Sorry If it came across that way which I do apologize for. I know communication is pretty much the top concern from our players hands down. I just want to reassure folks that we are here (the Team) and things will go on. Just give us a bit of time to sort a few things out and we can go from there.

Even though everybody knew Beyomd the Dead was RIP, forum users frantically asked & asked what was going on: it took GREE almost 2 weeks before they officially posted that BtD was being cancelled.

Give Sirius some slack... At least he posted something.

Thanks Sirius! :)

Which type of Company you are? A internet Company right. What is the thing what Internet Companys dont have? Time. The internet is to fast of changes that you have much time. Now we must wait until you sort things. Should not happen but you do it again and again. Invest more in your Communication Department its no Thing that you only have a Moderator. Improve this listen more to customer and btw common a Weekly standard Feedback thread is a joke. Make you Homework and player will be more happy.

If it violates the rules, I'm just wondering if it violates the rules.

If Bolt won't be returning, please tell him thank you for all of his work here.

Overrated. Events are all the same. Prizes aren't really relevant. Just keep the game running without major disruptions, and "communication" becomes kind of unnecessary.

Ok Sirius, I know we have been asking for this for the longest time, and gree seems to think we don't need it!!! if we ask is because we do need/want!!! we are paying customers. when you put out an LTQ, post info on the whole LTQ as it starts, every level, every hit, every prize. most have given up on LTQ because they don't know what to expect. all they know is that it costs gold to finish. maybe some would buy the gold needed if they know how much gold they needed.

on another note. i have been trying to help out with LTB info for Crime city. crime city is pretty easy to guess, but Modern war is not. we would like to get a community admin that actually has these numbers to post LTB info as it comes out as well. base cost, base output. and prizes. again it might make more people buy the gold necessary if they know what they are getting. heck if you don't want to post to everyone, send me the info and ill update the LTB sheet i have going on. a lot of people think it is useful, but in the case of modern war, the base cost keeps changing i don't even know how many building types there are right now!!! latest gold buildings seem to have a new output schedule (Paper mill, hot dog truck, fireworks booth). basically we would like to know what we are buying.

To answer the original question, it appears he and others were lost their jobs in a RIF. He was not banned in the sense of having done something wrong, or was too helpful to players as some oddly have speculated. It just looks like that was the way someone chose to terminate his moderator access when his employment was terminated, however awkward.

Personally I think the layoffs were a good thing since there is no reason why there should be 1800 people working on their mobile game divison. At most each game they have should have a 50 person team and they have maybe a dozen games

Bolt and the rest are probably hard at work or on their CVs/resumes. Or in a pub somewhere, drowning their sorrows together. But I think Bolt wrote once that he wanted to work in the adult entertainment industry, I wish him well with that.
