Remember the Changes..

[Post New]by ChestnutHeights on Oct 27, 14 10:59 AM
Like many of you, I’ve been playing MC since the beginning. Although now on a self-imposed hiatus, on level 31, I do keep up-to-date by reading the threads.

I know there’s a lot of back and forth on what the game makers should do or things they haven’t done… so I wanted to rewind a minute and provide some perspective.

I think they listen to players more than we remember! I think we are all so in-the-moment of game play that we’ve forgotten the impact we’ve had.

Whether or not you like the changes, the point is they’ve made some based on our feedback.

Remember, you do make a difference and we should work together to continue to make this a game we want to play!

Here’s some examples (not complete, but some of the things we’ve requested that have been changed)

1.Keeper of the Castle. This was the first stopping point in the game. Many of us were stuck here. Fast forward. Since then, we’ve regularly received updates approximately 1x every 4-6 wks.

2. Pet Food. Remember when each pet had their own food? And it was difficult to find for a specific animal? They combined them into groups-granted they still need to fix the drop rate on these.

3.Find Path. This was fixed. I know there may be still some issues but for the most part, way better than it was.

4.Bow Figure, It’s gone. Enough said

5. Airship. These used to be items you may need for a quest. They changed that and they have the icons

6.Variety. We asked for things to do while we waited, they added daily quests and now the tournaments

7.HOS. We were tired of the same scenes. They switched around some of them.

8. Pets. We asked for a greater variety. They now have 19 we can get.

9. Dice Table. It used to be only $, they added an additional way to obtain needed items

10. Avatars. We wanted different ones, they added more.

11. Fortune Wheel. Items are now displayed with names. Remember when new ones popped up and you had no idea what it was?

I think you're right, Chestnut I'd forgotten some of those changes for the better myself.
They have listened and I'm sure they strive hard to make it enjoyable for the majority while trying at least to fix the glitches.

Thanks for the reminder, I had completely forgotten about the airship change. I remember that I was never, not once, able to send the airship before the change!
Good memory!!!

I had forgotten about the airship before also! I remember a friend and I took turns sending the airship because it took the two of us to send one ship.

I know, I never sent an airship once before they changed it! I never had enough items! That was one huge change for the better

Ditto. Now I send it every time it comes around. I didn't realize until recently that besides the food & stamp, you also get a chunk of change from the friendly blimp.

i loved the daily quests when they came out- really gave me a reason to do those hog rounds- but once you have all the pets they are kind of obsolete

I love the tournaments too- i get quite excited about those

kdreetz. It's so funny that you mentioned that the airships also give coins. I played four months before I realized that!

Isn't it funny how we all play the game so differently. I only send the airships to earn coins! It is one of my steady sources of income.

I also noticed that if you want to call it early (before the 4 hours is up), it is fairly cheap diamond wise to call it. The cost goes down by a diamond for every hour that passes. If I log on and the ship has 1 or 2 hours before it comes, it is worth it to me to use the 1 or 2 diamonds to call it early just to get the coins. This, of course only works if you have enough of the items to send the ship. This method does keep my coin income up.

Aleutcia;

Just as a heads up, the coin you receive from sending the airship is the same as if you were to sell the items from your inventory, the only actual benefit you get from sending the airship is you always get one stamp and one pet food. Using diamonds for calling the airship early does not count for the "Market Master" achievement.

Kittensnlace, thanks for the info. For a while I was getting a basic food and 3 unique stamps each time. That happened for about 5 times in a row. Now for 4 times in a row I am getting a basic food and 1 blue stamp. We will see what comes next. Would not hurt my feelings if it went back to giving the unique stamps. I watch and very often it gives out more than 1 stamp, you just need to see what appears when you run your cursor over the item. It will tell how many of an item you get. I often get 2 plain stamps.

You're most welcome. It was good for me too, to be able to think back to how the game has changed since the beginning.

It reminds me that when reading the forum, since people have begun the game throughout it's existence, everyone has a different take on the game.

Players that just start now, will never know how much aggravation and pleading from players in the past did to help them today. And I'm sure in time, they'll be pushing for additional changes to keep making the game better. And the circle continues...

Plus, this was my way of letting those longer term players who have been leaving lately, that they DID make a difference! And to all those who've decided to walk away.. just want to let them know (as they say in my neck of the woods)

You Done Good, Kid!

And to thank them for making the game better today, than it was yesterday!
