    I've been following your "Why are issues not resolved?" Thread for a while now, and I feel for you folks. It's really nice to see guildmates come together to help a fellow member!

    It's a fair point to raise. A forum is a community place for discussions, sharing of ideas and having the community come together is great but this forum is owned by the Battle Bay team. Rovio still have the responsibility of being involved and a part of 'their' own community.

    If the Rovio team are much happier to respond on discord, where's the forum post asking for players to join from the Dev team? Should they not look at closing the forum or locking it down as an archive and have the player base move to discord?

    I guess they did in a way when they added a link in the game?

    In one respect you could make an assumption of the purpose behind the Discord. The only post I've found for it is in the 4.0 Hot Fix Update announcement thread:

    But nothing that elaborates on why they introduced it in the first place, what their intention was behind it or going forward and what it means for the forum.

    Sorry to be blunt, but that's a load of crap. The amount of forum posts made in a day takes 10 minutes to read. MVP's keep the forum in line for them, and most questions are already answered by other users. It's the tiny bit of work beyond that we are discussing.

    The way it seems to work is this: BB Forums are for announcements and player banter. Discord is for player banter as well, but more importantly it has a suggestion system where players submit well reasoned suggestions, the suggestions get voted on by other players, and the suggestions that get player approval are all responded to by Zeus. It's a decent system that saves Zeus's time, and avoids him having to discuss anything with players directly.

    Also to be blunt again, voting on this thread indicates an 84% player disapproval rate. Obviously something better needs to be done.

    I think the forum is supposed to be an information sharing site for players. (Strategy, questions, answers, memes:p) Discord is more of asking the Devs directly.

    (I sometimes see Zues online, maybe he's just reading threads and not replying.)
    But I agree, the forums are quite dead of Dev response. Everyone move to discord!

    In all fairness, our issue started on the forum, stayed here for a bit then moved to Discord. Still absolutely Nothing. So I don’t believe that an average player stands a chance to get a true issue resolved.

    Aye I saw that change she/he made yesterday, going from 35 - 100 is very steep. Considering how low the votes on ideas are currently, we won't get any Dev responses for a long time.

    I think if it just a minor problem you may can get if fix quicker. The issue we are dealing with is the game crashes on his main every time he opens it, but works perfectly fine if he opens his mini. Same pad, so it’s not the iOS, it is something with his game tag. We have been trying to get it working since before Thanksgiving. This isn’t on mine, but a friend. Numerous players have been trying to help him get it fixed. He is a fun player and is losing hope. It will be a huge loss for many of us if he quits.

    I went from 2800 infamy to 1700 and now I'm being punished for it. I get no rewards because of how shitty the ship balance and match making is..
    What are the chances of 99% of my matches all shooters (on my team) maybe 1 or 2 leg weapons (t1-t2)
    And enemy team has 1-3 fixers speeder enforcer reaper anything that speeds around . And t2-t3 leg weapons ALL OVER THE OTHER SIDE. I mean really what are the chances that all of my matches are like that???? Because they are.. How is 5 slow shooters loaded with mortars suppose to kill an entire team of speedy type ships that are constantly healing with way more powerful weapons?? I mean come the hell on how long do we all have to complain but you guys do something. Stop rewarding the p2w players... HEY US LITTLE BROKE PEOPLE ARE HERE TOO! sorry I'm poor please don't punish me for it.

    It's not actually a P2W thing, it's the NML Reset that's causing your Infamy drop, plus continuous events that ensure no one actually adjust their Infamy to compensate for the reset. All those NML players that were 4000-5500 are now 4000 or below, so effectively 1500 Infamy has been removed from the pool and everyone got adjusted downwards. After a couple full seasons of that mess your punishment should subside. Not so coincidentally I also dropped 1100 into the penalty zone, now 2 leagues lower than I was 8 months ago. It's a mess...showing us the Devs don't actually understand how their own game works.
