seems like the pedflow will become euroflow into the big ones pockets
Why don't you walk next door and ask them when they will be delivered?Unfortunately the results for the Merry Mayhem Event have not yet been delivered by MindArk to the Planet Calypso team.
Must spread more rep, blah blah blahI wonder if Mindark might be the most misrun company with the worst support in the entire world/online that is still in business?
It really is possible.
I do not think there is a company in the world where an simple employee has the right to simply hand out stuff worth several 10k USD without someone controlling him, that he does not do something wrong.How do you want to read this??
a) Calculations are ready for at least 4 days, but they were not done by the 'right people'
b) The 'right people' will check in a few days what the 'not so right people' took a month to calculate
Seriously now... ... more than the fact that it takes over a month to publish the results, I think what bothers people the most if the fact that a deadline (set by devs themselves) is not being met, time and time again...
I'll go back to my hunt now
Reputable companies make every attempt to satisfy customers and meet proposed deadlines for their product being delivered...I do not think there is a company in the world where an simple employee has the right to simply hand out stuff worth several 10k USD without someone controlling him, that he does not do something wrong.
Exactly.Reputable companies make every attempt to satisfy customers and meet proposed deadlines for their product being delivered...
Or, am I wrong?
We are not the customers, the planet partners are MAs customers. And even having land deeds does not make one a direct customer of Mindark.Reputable companies make every attempt to satisfy customers and meet proposed deadlines for their product being delivered...
Or, am I wrong?
All the participant and no participant can understand that, but man.. they must to tell us much then they have flu.Relax...it's mm:
The people that "think" they won...didn't even place.
The people that "know" they won...might place somewhere in 5th-15th.
The people that actually won...they won't even talk about it here, or care, til the results come out. (Except for one or 2 selling-threads, which was a real dick-move btw)
You'll get your results when MA says the data makes just enough sense for them to stop caring. No sooner. It is a cess-pool of fucked data, with 1-2 tenths of a second variations completely changing around leader-boards. There were different types DC's and server problems, 100's of reported "DC's" (probably 1000's) that were just the broke-ass scammer pieces of shit liars that this game attracts. If anyone, get mad at all those people with shitty connections in shitty countries who DC'ed on their own and who have each filed probably 60 poorly-worded support cases. Then get mad at all the real scammers faking DC b/c someone in their infinite wisdom decided to mention that "when dc'ed, averages would be used to determine winners". THIS is what really created MA's headache that they are dealing with.
The event was fucked from the first twins-crash, anyone who couldn't see that was blind and now you want to blame them for taking so long to figure it out? LOLZ. Blame them for having bad event, fine...but don't blame them for extending the time needed to try to figure it out.
This is the first time I ever defended MA I think, but seriously, people, MA got the flu, they have shitloads of work that needed to be done, and they need more time to deal with it. You deal with it too.
Yeah information WOULD calm people down, I agree with that. Temporarily. But information is probably the last thing they care about. "MA: It will be done by April" Does that change anything? No.All the participant and no participant can understand that, but man.. they must to tell us much then they have flu.
Or a date in future to chill down the tension for a while... even if the date it will be a little exaggerated... exemple in semptember...
That is the real issue.. they not say to us something real.. and when they do that they put for target dates that they can not follow..
Not all of that it is like you've say...Yeah information WOULD calm people down, I agree with that. Temporarily. But information is probably the last thing they care about. "MA: It will be done by April" Does that change anything? No.
The basic analogy is this: You get hired by a General Contractor...you and all the other subcontractors start performing the work. During performance of that work, all the sub-contractors immediately notice that the General Contractor is having financial problems. You still finish the work and demand payment immediately.
Does the General Contractor give you a date you will be paid? Maybe. So what?
Will he pay you on that date? No, and you already knew that.
So all you can do is wait. In MA's case, at least you know the winners will, in fact, get paid, and if MA takes the time to sort out who gets what, and try to insure fairness, it's all they can do. Giving someone a date it will happen by is an exercise in futility, and truly has to be the least of their concerns.
A promised date that something will occur serves NOTHING, except to frustrate those people even more when they can't perform by that date. It is best to just say "hey, it's taking longer than we thought...hang in there guys" and leave it at that. Nothing else changes anything.
The analogy was made NOT to show legal similarities. It was made to show that anyone going into to MM should have known, from the first server crash, that the results were going to take longer than expected. Until they know for sure, it would all be an empty promise, it is impossible to guarantee a date.Not all of that it is like you've say...
For example in the case with General Contractor probably I could sue him and maybe eventually to pay me penalties for delay, but here i think that situation is not possible because ultimately is just a game.
I do not know if it would be possible to put some complaint on the consumer protection office in Sweden if such thing exist there.
But, nevertheless i think is a big enough company to hier an customer care employees to find the best sollution to thank a majority of players. And personaly, i think the best solution in this situation would be to comunicate something to apologize to deliver some explanations when is needed.
MA may have brainwashed you with what they "say", but I know better.Laugh as much as you like, MA has stated several times that we are only participants and not customers.
The difference between customers and participants...........They provide the product/service of a virtual universe, the "participants" are customers. It's unfortunate that you fail to comprehend that...
