There wont be any suing of Dakota, or at least those who might try it wont accomplish much with the exception of wasting more of their own money on the task itself...

The mobile gaming market is truly the digitized version of the old west frontier for the modern age.   They do not need nor want veteran players to remain on board,   they will only spend money to a certain point then they just sit like fat sows on the food trough squeezing out any upstarts from getting much of a foothold themselves and therefore being compelled to spend more money themselves thus suffocating the games income.   Not only that but we are still in the beginning stages of the smartphone/tablet revolution.   Perhaps most of us here who have already been using such devices for several years now forget that fact.   The truth is just like the wild west new smartphone and tab users arrive in brandnew shiny Iphone and android covered wagons to the app markets everyday.   Theres an endless meat grinder that by the numbers dictates that customer loyalty is not a priority hell its not even really a desire(see above).   Because we are all replaceable  with fresh nieve young prospecters with full wallets and no experience or understanding that this kind of HORSESHIT is what every single morally devoid game developer does.   Every one of them.   This is my first go round in this Card style type of game but Ive played 2 other mobile games in the 3 years prior to my year here and sooner or later both of them did the exact same thing....I mean EXACT SAME THING.  

Theres a very real reason we havent heard booo shit from dakota since back in april when they showed up to ask for patience and support in their transition as they had just bought the game.  And they purred in our ears about how much gratitude for such a wonderful fan base and cooed that if we had any questions at all just ask....And then that speaker went silent.   Its called distance...its much easier to turn your back on any fucking shred of a moral compass you might have once had when you arent chummy with old yeller, your beloved long time faithful companion as you level the pistol til his foreheads in your target range.  And with a history or limited or often no communication precedent has already been sent which further decreases the backlash emails and such(not that they will have any fucking effect anyway), because we've already been trained not to expect a response.

Once that guns been fired and the deed is done, they move on, thankful they no longer have to nurse and tend to that old appendage or dead weight any more.   Which leads us to the players options which are,   play on and spend more time and money to rebuild or quit.   Getting them to answer for such blatant abuse of what most of us in the westernized world have to come to know as the normal and expected customer-provider rules of conduct wont happen.   Because the app markets much like the frontier has little or no centralized regulatory provision in place and given they are international the likelihood of that happening anytime soon are zero and nonee.     this isnt bed bath and beyond where if you feel scammed by them you can report them to the consumer affairs and file a complaint and take them to court with any expectation to win.  And that what makes it so jarring and unbelieveable....I mean, How could they get away with this???!   this is what you are all asking yourselves is it no?.   Its because you live in a westernized bubble just like the new settlers did who lived in law driven easetrn coastal cities....they much like us were shocked and dismayed by the inproprieties occurring on the frontier, but it didnt take long to realize that they have no other recourse other than to adapt and continue living there or quit it and move back...plain and simple

The best way to show any type of resistance that might affect some reversal or change is to storm the gates.   All it takes is 60 seconds of your time to got the apple or android app market and spell out your game review  how dakota does everyone dirty by taking money and then changing game mechanics without warning rendering your money spent useless.   change the stars given to a 1 and say 5 stars will be reinstated once recent changes are reinstated or are least reduced in scope and power to something acceptable.   Dont know about you but I use the reviews in the app markets extensively when deciding on apps.   Im pretty sure a lot of potential new players might do the same so  its the only real power we might have to sway them to change back at this point.

Lastly for those players who are "happy" or unaffected by todays changes,   its weak sauce that you would even bother to comment when what has been done here is such a ridickulous disregard for your fellow players.    It maybe be the agi's that got slammed today, But you can fucking bet dollars for donuts it'll be atk next month and wisdom the month after.   Stand in unity now or watch as it all falls apart at the seems when a whole lot of your current allies and friends who make this game as enjoyable as it is for all of us, walk away in disgust.   Then again just like the wild west you'll be left dealing with another facet of that once forgotten way of life...the ghost town...

Obviously that was spoke out of pain legend Smile I'm not saying that mordeo is crap. I am saying that in the large scheme of the value of my account, I considered mordeo a drop in the bucket until today, when he is now potentially my second most valuable merc.

I know, bro. I'm just giving you a hard time. I'm just glad they didn't nerf your Foresight on your shiny new toy (yet??). If I could help in any way I would, but I'm probably in worse shape than you are right now.

Everydaynyc, good read with some good points.

I'm pretty sure that's exactly how Dakota wants it. My guess is their savage sales have been pretty abysmal since the Telepath teams and AGI / Relentless Assault / Blue / Black teams have become a fad for raids.

^^^ this is 100% the problem. They didn't take out all of the 300% mods on skills, or any of the ridiculous 100% modifiers on other buffs. This a joke nerf, aimed directly at forcing everyone to buy savages in Dakotas new cell-centered profit scheme. Prepare to see anything that interferes with cell sales to suffer a similar fate.

Not to mention some of the guys nerfed came out of cells. That money is spent. Time to buy omega-fista from pacts, its fista with the needs removed, $3 a cell, and you have a .00001 chance of getting him. Ready go.

mamon is right, just look at all the new pacts they have been releasing lately. It's crazy. They want you to spend spend spend but offer no garuntee that whatever comes out of those pact will be nerfed.

The problem is that after this bitch move they'll have less people spending money onnthe game than before. Dakota is no longer to be trusted and therefor also not worth spending money on. Seems like I have to play BB again. Lol.

our forum community is well aware of what's going on and with great people and mods to inform us in details on what the changes are, but think of the player base that are not on the forum and the new players that know nothing about the CXBs and Modifiers%,it means nothing to them, we are such a small % here that our voices can be overlooked and the game will move on.

I feel bad for the numerous people who don't access this forum, and are snatching up those blue bots, black bots, or others on the exchange. I think if I didn't frequent this forum, I wouldn't have realized how serious the nerfs were in the update and would have lost all my res trading in the following days.

Ya I gotta say that just because I run atk team doesn't mean I don't think this is completely wrong. And if your just sitting there going "I don't care cause I run atk" you are bantha fodder. Many of your fellow forum mates were just cometely screwed and it could have just as easily been atk squads that got shat on.

My message to the devs....

The Nerf.... its hard for me to even send this as the nerf did nothing but benefit me (atk based squad) but on behalf of all the veteran players that got screwed out of hundreds and hundreds of dollars in RES I gotta say WTF. I mean what was done to fista is a complete travesty. He's A PACT L..... one of the things you make money on. Now that we know you will alter pact Ls no one in their right mind is going to purchase them anymore. Better odds at a casino and they don't devalue their winnings. With all the rumors of Dakota shutting down the game the last thing you guys should have done is further rock your loyal players confidence in the game. This forum has a huge influence on peoples spending decisions in the game and I think its really too bad you guys don't take advantage of that. Instead you make a decision that will make many leave the game alltogether. If you wanted people to buy savages then you should have just increased bosses HP.

Just 10 hours before the nerf i got a blue bot (10934) for 300 BB resources. While i don't t plan to play BB anymore anyways i initially thought that's a bit to expensive but didn't care.
But wow, now it somehow feels like a really bad trade. Wink

Better that than wasting 4 months building up enough to make an in game trade for a fista.

Seriously, do you know how hard it is to find someone who's willing to trade a fista for in game shit? Let alone how much they ask????

All wasted now that he's not worth crossing he street to piss on if he were on fire

My POPE CXB-2000A was one of my favourite mercs...I built him from scratch and perfectly crafted every piece of him until he was the best of his kind.

But I made an executive decision upon reading this thread that if I ever wanted to get a good price for him, now would be the best time. He was snatched up within the hour.

Thanks guys, for making me aware of what's happened and helping me avoid some future regret. Maybe I'll buy him back somewhere down the line...

Dakota even made telepath lol, I guess my squad was just too much to bare, so they had to mess with that too, this is a message to dakota : you are all a bunch of fucking morons or thieves either or, maybe even dumbass thieves, because now nobody is going to be so ignorant to dump money in your scandalous excuse for a game hahaha. I don't much care since I'm quitting but I would be irate if I was still playing for top.

Yea they always seem to have a huge push on cells right before they do something like this. Like collosus, how they sold him for days after the raid only to add him to vet cells as soon as they stopped

I'm glad tho this didn't happen 2 days later, today's my birthday and I was actually gonna try to get another fista for the fun of it by actually buying the tier cells....
Dodged a bullet there I guess...

Crazy part is Thalstin, imagine complete moral void you have to live in to put fista on the front of that tier pack and push selling all these pacts L's HARD before nerfing them at the end of the week.

Happy birthday paint.
I think its safe to assume that those changes won't be revoked so I wonder what to do with my blue bot. Just now I have it up for 80 ac in exchange (don't think anybody takes it) but i am unsure.
I mean, at least in pvp it will still be essential to go first won't it?
It just feels like burning resources by keeping him and from an economical point of view i should try to get rid of it now where some people maybe don't even know about the change yet.
So hard decisions. Wink
