Looking at the Announcements forum I have realized that we haven't had a decent update in over 16 weeks. The War and Energy Cap. Not to mention that that is an update that many didn't like. Im not including the User Titles because that upgrade wasn't worth even talking about. Before the energy and war update the Check System was implemented and that one seems (for most) a move in a good direction.

I bring this up because I know there are plenty of users in this game that actually donate monthly for this game and besides getting more energy all they get are false hopes of updates in the future.

I understand that most people like this game because it doesn't change but with all these donations you would think they would be quicker with updates and fixes. I mean take the stats graph for example. I've been reading in the bugs forums for almost a year now that peoples stats graphs don't update regularly or in some other way are faulty, this goes with chat and lag as well.

I know lots of you are going to say, "well don't donate then blah blah" But many of us like to see this game advance and keep a good influx of new people to keep this game rolling for years to come. If this game was 100% free with no donations I would accept slow fixes and months without updates, however that is not the case, people do donate and people expect updates/fixes.

Do you think your donations are being well spent and are happy with the false hopes of updates, or do you think we should get quicker fixes and more( at least monthly) updates?

What makes you assume I'd want game-changes?

As it was in the beginning, is now, and shall ever be - Torn without end!

You have to be aware that they are working on 2.0?

And surely you've seen the blog where they posted updates on the progress?

Someone's still upset at being called punchbag.

You can't just not include updates that you don't like, surely...

Don't they fix little things a lot and just not make announcements? Big updates take a lot of work, a lot of work takes a lot of time. I think if they rushed things more would end up broken. It's free at the end of the day so I'm quite happy.

He was clear from the start it would take more than "months".

I feel you are being unreasonable.

There are some people that drop hundreds of dollars for DP's and probably a thousand or more donating just the $5 a month. With that type of money flow how can i be unreasonable?

Oh, I see. This is a thinly veiled complaining thread about titles. Don't like yours? Do something to change it.

People spending money on DP's means he should magically finish the project in 1/3 the time? No, I say your response is further proof of your unreasonableness.

People like you that think this is a crying thread obviously don't see the point here. So keep your mouth shut and let people discuss this.

I for one don't care what my title is or what anyones title is for that matter, how does that effect my game play? It doesn't.

What does effect my game play is the stats graph, chat boxes and lag that should have been fixed months ago.

money doesn't fix things or release updates, coders do. money flow doesn't help them do anything except for host the game, it wont make them work faster.
2.0 is a 2 year project they announced that already and said they would slowly implement it in, they are working on a lot of things and luckily there are more coders than there used to be but still it'll be a long process and they are too busy working on this new big thing that they don't have time to release silly monthly things.
So what we need here Exceldope is whips and chains. that'll make them work faster.

all in all though, i think i can speak for us all (except you) that we dont want any damn updates because they always ruin things. the bookie update. the stock update. the faction update. chess, took forever for such a small portion of our players. energy cap. title update (waste of their time, pretty sure no one cares about their title yet this update probably took a wee bit of time, not much but still).
keep the damn updates, give us something new - 2.0

I second this point of view. Even though it's been a bit since I last donated, I have donated more than my share in the past. I would much rather the devs spend the time and effort required to release a quality product than force it out too soon plagued with bugs.

I can agree with both of your points. And as for what someone else said, most updates are shit. And that is what i want this thread to focus on. If people are donating these funds to the game shouldn't us as a community and the people that are keeping this game alive deserve non shit updates. I'm not here asking for handouts, what i do expect is people that do donate get the best money can buy, if that involves better coders so be it, but only getting quarterly emails with what to expect in the near future seems like it's only a ploy to keep players here and keep donating when in actuality these changes may not happen or take another couple years to come. They did the same with chess.. its coming, its coming.... years later... HEY here is chess, it sucks but here it is.

exactly, created too much expectation for something that turned out to be a total shit.

maybe they should just f**king make the updates already and then talk about them. they'll still need fixing anyway, so at least people won't know for how long it has been worked for and not bitch so much about them.
yes, it won't look very professional, but then again, claiming to work on stuff for months and then fail to deliver isn't exactly better.
