EDIT by PGDave: Activity has been updated on Oct-18. Read more here.
I have a question about the new Activity Levels, how they’re calculated, and what affects them.
Before the change (I’m not familiar with the specifics so I’m not clear how it changed, just that it did), my main account and alt were logged in dailiy, usually multiple times, active in chats, and flying around being dragony.
After the change, I noticed it was more difficult to stay active, but didn’t know what I could do to remedy the situation because I didn’t know what actions would affect the outcome. But, I was able to stay in active mode.
When I started a new team, my main and alt were on for many hours and I was extremely active, yet neither of my accounts (both elite accounts) went into Very Active. Again, I didn’t know what I could possibly do to move into Very Active, and didn’t think about factors outside of my actions in-game.
During this past event, my alt got a low activity notice during the night after an active day of multiple logins and numerous flights, active chatting, etc. My alt came in third in this event, and still remains in Low Activity status. I don’t know what more I could possibly do, and I’m wondering if there’s someone who can shed some light on this. It is very frustrating, and frankly very disheartening.
The only variable I’ve been able to come up with is that two members of my team who buy packs on a fairly regular basis are frequently in Very Active status, and while I don’t want to think that I’d have to spend money beyond what I already do on a monthly basis just to get out of Low Activity status, it seems to be the only explanation that makes any sense.
I’m hoping another explanation will be offered, one that I can work with, because I can’t afford to spend more than $10/month on this wonderful game just to get myself out of Low Activity while working furiously and being extremely active in the game to try to combat this level that affects the whole team.
