Finally my time has come to stop playing Valiant Force completely. The responsibility and my health dont allow me to continue playing. This event will be my last. I will only stay a little longer to allow smooth transition when i step down from GM role.
I wanna thank for the great game. I really love this game. Easy to balance work & life.
My final feedbacks not for me but for my other friends who still play this game are:
1) Conquest feature may kill more players than keeping them
Conquest system destroys all logics that VF had been built on. Very time consuming and stressful for GM and/or strategist (will be much worse if GM and strategist are the same person like me). It drains life force of responsible person. And it is the task that no casual player wants to handle;
2) Awaken Valiant skills (as of now) dont seem to justify the time needed to build one
As a player who always has faith in valiant and never miss buying valiant ticket from arena. With 43 copies of valiant heroes in my hand from 575 days in VF (I should be top 1% in term of number of valiants obtained), I can guarantee that awakening valiants is a hardship for most players (even if we now have a chance to get valiant selector every 2 months). Considering the hardship to awaken valiant, the awaken skills are not different from awaken skills of genesis hero (Victoria) and aspirant hero (Nadia). This creates an imbalance.
We dont mind if u make something hard to get as long as its worth the time and effort. When something takes longer time to build but is average or is not different from something that can be built in short time, its not considered a good investment;
3) Do not lose sight of big picture and always consider things from users friendly perspective when releasing new feature
Many things that were suggested by players on forum tp reduce times for playing have been implemented by the devs. But if almost everything friendly to users have to be suggested from players, it also means that u dont do ur job well enough.
P.S. One day u will regret abandoning the forum which should be the capitol of ur online community. U finally get an excellent forum admin like MiloD unlike those admins in the past that cant compromise with, reason or penalize players. But it wont matter now as u have been diverting players to non official communities since launching Arathos server.
