Why did Zemi stop writing the Dev Blog 2 Years ago?

 

It was really a nice way to show the Players what is being worked on. But even with the Dev blog, communication with the community was and is really, really poor. Why not tell us what you are working on? There's absolutely no reason to keep secrets from us. I really couldn't name another Company with such poor communication skills as Zemi.

 

Please start working with us, not against us. We do not bite.

 

Regards Crit.

Ohh Yeahh!!! :D [dont delete this pist]
Thats would be really cool! Zemi why not? Its only 1,5-months to release it. Would be great to have some teasers or dev blog. So then you will know earlier if some things you will do ks acceoted but players as well :)

As Crit said you need to work together with us to improve the game to become on of the best MMOs again just give it all ti new Patch.

If (you) developers watch that post then try fkr the best healthy balance of the game and add New but BLANCED interesting contests in 4Story <3

We waiting answer SeeYa!

Also:

There are a lot of players like me that really love this game and that would willingly offer you their free time to test content, talk about ideas and the progress of this game or even create Trailers or marketing material just for the fun of it. But that (like I already mentioned) needs communication from your side too.

Really hope we could get this community restarted and more active.

Just to compare. In 2009 the German Community had around 2000 daily Users online and writing in the forum. In April 2010 there were 500 Post each day! http://web.archive.org/web/20100427203722/http://board.4story.de/

Now I know the german community always was one of the biggest, but even today the german community writes more things in the forum every day than this almost dead global community in half a year.

You see.. I think more frequent communication (also Player <-> Player not only involving Zemi) would be a great first step to revitalize this community.

Best Regards Crit

btw. I'm playing more often on the global server now than on the german servers ;)

Maybe I should have asked: Is anyone working here at all?

Or rather.. Who else is reading this post over and over again but doesn't tell us his own opinion on the matter?

Would you (the community) rather see more on how the game develops and what Content awaits us or not?

Who else would like to directly communicate with the Creators of this game from time to time?

Should communication be done here or on the official Facebook page?

Would really like to see a few more people writing here.

Regards Crit

Sup, I am a little by of a vet. So hear me out...

I used to play this game a lot, so much so I was forced to quit. I remember playing on the US Gates of Anderon servers before they were transferred to Germany. I spent a lot of time and money and my childhood on the game and know MOST of the ins and outs to level cap. Then I hit the point in my life where I was forced to quit the game.

Once I saw the GoA transfers to 4Story global I decided to retry. But everything just changed so much and it began to be really hard to get back in the game. I remember the top guilds trying desperately to funnel all their money into getting a +24 weapon then when we achieved it Zumi wandered with the addition of +28. Stunned at the clear market and cash grab scheme I quit. And again now being a fullly fledged "adult" who wants to relive the memories and nostalgia I feel like this game is so beyond broken and dragged out that there is absolutely no investment <-> fun return and vise Vera's there used to be WAY back in the day. Prove me wrong and I'll play again and shovel money down zumi's throat.

TLDR: Game seems broken and not worth playing anymore. Prove me wrong

I appreciate that you registered an account to write your feedback in this thread. Would be great if more vet. would do the same and show Zemi, that they would still love to play this game if Value is restored.

I (hopefully) can prove you somewhat wrong. At the moment it is indeed not a game worth starting to play. I switched from German Servers a few weeks ago. While leveling is super easy because of the Event, it is nearly impossible to upgrade the gear without spending money. During any wars, you get utterly destroyed by 5k+ Hits while dealing 5-400dmg. If I wouldn't have played this game for so long already, I would clearly have simply logged off and never came back. An Initial 200-300$+ just to maybe catch up in terms of equipment is just not reasonable and will drive away any and all newcomers.

So the game seems indeed broken. But in fact it's not the game that is broken, but rather the monetization. Making basic upgrading free for all and make money with additional Skins, Pets, whip, storage bags and probably a thousand more things would give anyone the same chance in PVP and therefore let new players into the game. Once they play a few week or months they can then decide whether they think it's worth spending money. Something They do not even consider right now. Also, if the monetization was changed, it would actually be worth to recommend this game because we wouldn't be forced to say: "you know, actually it is pay to win".

I still think it's a great game, it needs some polishing and a new monetization system, but those things aren't impossible to do.

Regards Crit.

Less than two weeks until "something big" will arrive. Yet not even a word about it. Hell.. we do not even know it will be an update. Could as well be that zemi shuts down their Server on the 27th. Zemi should consult or hire a PR specialist. Even indepentend game deverlopers nowadays are aware of how communication and teasing content relates to financial success.

And my point is still vaild. I'd love to help out with making a new game play teaser or such things, but up until now there has not been a single word from Zemi. No joking, I am confused. Zemi waists so much potential, time and money just because they don't feel like communicating with us. It's just beyond weird.

Really hope someone from Zemi will finally break the radio silence. My offer to help in any possible way is still valid.

Regards Crit

Zemi does not give advance notice because it might affect the money they make and current game economy. A prior knowledge of what will be there could drastically affect how the game is now. So, they keep it as a surprise. 

This was the perfect example when they changed the options on all items. two weeks before the update I spent over 400g on new jewels which two week later worth nothing. if I have known that, I would not have spent any money and people who have spent any real money would not have spent it and Zemi loose all that income. they still need to pay their employees and two weeks of no money flow means no future games for them.
