Hi logress et al.
Thanks for the heads up. When you say numbers do you mean money, number of players, number of paying players? So many different numbers in Alteil.
Shame because it seems so much of Alteil has to be run on "volunteer time" and that will only happen for people who truly love the game. I love the game and have a huge vested interest so if i had more time and computer ability I would certainly give you more help. I mean honestly, when you look at the other online ccg's outside of MTG, they are a joke compared to Alteil. it is clearly successful in Japan so that should translate to other formats quite well. I think trying to force the japanese method on the rest was it's undoing.
Have you given thought to the ideas put forward in the thread for improvements? What is the possibility of end skills' evolutionskills etc.
One of the main problems might be that the forum is not indicitave of the attitudes and purchasing of your "normal" playerbase. Personally, i think the attitude of the forums is heavily slanted towards us paying players as we feel we have something invested which to some degree is true.
logress, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. You need to update the "mob" on the progress. the days only go faster once you have kids- trust me i know I have 2. Soon you will feel like you are a taxideiver as a second job for which you won't be paid.
Ps: keep up the hard work and will see you on the other side.
Nought's had, all's spent, Where our desire is got without content;'Tis safer to be that which we destroy Than by destruction dwell in doubtful joy.
