Lets clear a few things up. Mike and I spoke years ago about the idea of him selling me the game. It was an idea. We spoke, nothing more. 

 

 

Our goal should stay focused on how we can work with him to improve the game we all fucking love. United we are a force. This thread was an idea to help our game grow.  Stop the bull shit and work with me on ideas that can work.   

 

 

Lets stop bitching, complaining, procrastinating and combine our efforts to move the game forward. 

 

Humors mentioned it in chat, now a lot o the stuff he mentions is usually shit but every now and then you find a smidgen of truth.  In this case yeah there was a talk about Mike selling you the game, that is all we wanted to clarify. 

 

And to stay on topic:  When have you ever heard of clients having to work hard at bettering the business they are subscribing to?  It's the world backwards.  Nobody is bitching man, it's just that if the fucking owner doesn't give a rat's arse guess what?  Why would the clients care? 

 

This game will continue being the way it is (fairly awesome) and forever the could have / should have will stay. 

 

I mean, last time I sent an avatar for approval it took Mike so damn long to reject it with a vague note that the tournament was already finished lol 

 

I think the only time I spend a few $ was to buy extra fighter slots but I would be damned if I paid VIP money for dude to renovate his bathroom in 3 months.  Anyone that owns a business or has a few brain cells understands that succesful people don't spend 3 months renovating their bathroom, you pay someone to do it in a week for time is money.

Are we making excuses for Mike now?  New house, new bathroom, new baby = less MMA Tycoon and we should understand?  What?

 

 

Screw that, I own a company and would never expect my customers to understand that my private life holds me up from doing the work they paid me for.

 

That's straight up BS.   And now I hear he has no time for US do to another game / project? MMA Bets or something.  What?

 

So we are paying money to a dead game where the owner is more involved with another game? WHAT?

 

I'm here trying to help him get funds to help this game AND HE IS ON ANOTHER PROJECT? NOT THIS ONE FULL TIME? WTF is going on here. Are we the forgotten left behind trash that gives him funds for other projects while we are here hoping / waiting for basic fooking upgrades?

From what I hear, he's making under $30k a year from mmat.  Would you work on this game full time for 30k? Of course not.

With that said, I do agree that he needs to dedicate at least SOME time since we are paying customers, and we do have certain expectations.

I would lmao

 

and I'd try and make that 30k into a lot more by actually putting some care into the development and running of the game

I get where you're coming from at the end of the day people are still paying money in the hope of cool new features being added to the game / added for VIP members. If all the VIPs suddenly went, "No, I've waited long enough for changes, I'm not waiting any longer and I wont be renewing" then that $30k a year would quickly become $0 a year.

 

I'm curious if there's any way for VIP members to give feedback on why they no longer wish to continue to renew their VIP membership. It would help gather information on why we lost such a high number of users over the years (of course those who were multi accounts don't count)

I’m happy with the game as it is considering how much it costs to play it, I’m with Squid on the first page in that I’d be worried about too big an overhaul of the game. Like that saying goes - “be careful what you wish for cos you just might get it”

I'm not for an overhaul of the game, but it would be nice to see some continuous improvement of it.
