    That's precisely the effect Zelazny described with such poignancy. Its metaphysical meaning goes right over the head of those who are stuck with their feet in the swamp. No shame, it would catch anyone of us. The rest is merely saved by not having the funds to participate on a competitive level, in our concrete example. My like was for finding community in knowing the great author.

    One darker possibilty remains unexplored, that this damaging silence is not exactly self-inflicted. Who the hell knows.

    This whole issue is not just about me, yes I might be more vocal than the other winners......

    I cant see that happening... it's not my bag, I don't craft or mine! And to make all things equal, the other winners of Land Area's who are totally frustrated by this issue... would get the same for one click on condition?

    Best thing the team from Ark can do is make a public statement saying that things have got messed up..... and offer the winners some form of compensation.....

    I personally really would only accept something that is synonymous with the event..... hence why I suggested the Gold Rush Armour (roughly equal to LA value and would take 5 mins to create) That way I have something associated with the 7 stage of the event. The Ark team, could then stick the Land Plots on auction or in the loot pot... when they get created!!

    Maybe its about time that CEO of Ark intervened, made a public post, and compensated the participants, who have been mislead. And then seek to claim the consequential losses back from MA, not just the amount compensated to the players, but also the damage it has done to their business?

    A game that involves money is built on trust.... a loss of this trust can have a catastrophic effect...... Why would anybody enter another event?

    Look, I chose to play this game, I don't play it for the money, I use it to unwind and relax.... I think Ark is the best grinding planet available.... not too hilly, good open killing grounds, good spawns in general... I want more players on Ark..... I want the ark team to continue to develop new creatures, etc...... so do the right thing the ark team, resolve the issue and put it to bed.

    Come on Ark Team, don't bury your head in the sand, talk to us, treat us with some respect, tell us what has gone wrong and how you intend to rectify this?

    Contrary to what you might think, silence is not Golden !!

    I am amazed that the official MindArk stance seems to be to avoid and prolong discussions on these issues. I say official, because I find it hard to believe that MindArk does the same with Caly and we see PP's acting the same way for the most part when issues arise.

    In my own business there are times when I have no good news for a customer, but the fact remains I must at least make an effort to contact them to let them know I am working on the issue and that I will keep them updated. Silence is the death of many relationships in business. If you do not remain in constant contact with your customers they get worried, if you owe a vendor money and you do not take their calls, they will sue you as they have no idea if you are trying to pay them back or not. This game isn't much different and yet, we get very little updates on any issues that arise.

    Well said...... I really don't understand why they continue to ignore the issue, maybe they don't read the forums, or maybe they just don't care what people think.

    You would honestly think they would make a public announcement, and try and nip the issue in the bud, and compensate the players that have been mislead..... to me its no different than "taking peoples money under false pretences"

    I am so disappointed in the lack of professionalism and response, I am on the verge of considering never visiting or hunting on the planet again, and I would certainly talk to all our 3 different societies and advise them to be extremely careful about hunting on Ark in the future, especially in events.

    Guess I better start checking out the mob maps on RT or Cryene......or even consider going back to cally, when I have finished the repeatable missions on the Scoria and WH4!!

    I find lack of professionalism not plausible for an explanation. Something more sinister is going on. Politics, gag orders, who knows. Seen it all.

    In a normal gaming company you sign NDA's to prevent crucial information from leaking out, even as a beta/alpha tester. Entropia with multiple different companies working on the same platform most likely has a multitude of these, with a variety of clauses for various reasons.
    Something to consider maybe, because no company likes to look bad in anyway.

    I am aware, and that's exactly what I call politics if it covers more than mere technical trade secrets. If it hampers your ability to talk to your customers and resolve problems to the degree shown, then it makes the company look bad anyway. The damage might be even greater, depending on the case. Do they have to take it lying down when they're called unprofessional as a consequence? Such contractually enforced loyalty is very often very one-sided.

    I dont know how A-Team feel but i would feel ashamed if anything. Its not hard to check the forum, write a line, or actually do something.

    Yes, also completely new items for prizes and slightly modified instances.

    PPVU scheduled for next month. I wonder if A-Team are working on it or even know it...
