Well, this season is off to a rocky start for me. Sorry this got long.
Tuesday, I was excited for the new season. I had a small ruby hoard and a plan. I was intending to open gold chests with rubies, get my egg boost going day one and open the rider line. Along the way I’d get a number of IFs and crates to help get a good start in the first event.
The ongoing team chat bugs and some issues others reported with chests caused me to wait until today. I opened my small pile of bronze chests, and no problem. So I opened enough golds (bought with rubies) to finish the 125% egg line. I added up the sigils as i went along. I overshot a bit because i got lucky and hit the 1100 sigil reward on the last group. I had collected a total of 7225 new summerkai sigils (and they looked like the correct sigils every time, to boot). I went back into “seasons,” and guess what? No sigils. I exited the event and went back in, no sigils. I re-started the game, no sigils.
So now, instead of being excited about my eggs boost and new rider, I am frustrated. Instead of having time to get a good start on gauntlet, I get to submit a ticket and write this post instead. Hmmm.
By the way, I cannot create a ticket in game because my bug reporting tool doesn’t work. I created a ticket on that months ago, but PG did not help me, they just said use the web site. Do they not care that that is very inconvenient for me, and that their bug reporting widget should work?
On Tuesday, I was excited for the new season. My daily offer was one I was interested in. $75, yup I’ll spend that on a game. But the chat bug and other bugs and support issues caused me to pause. So, PG, you lost a small sale Tuesday because of poor software quality and poor support.
Today, I am wondering why I continue to invest time and money in a game whose poor quality frustrates me on a regular basis. This sigil issue is a really big deal to me. I am not a whale, but I have spent and do spend money on War Dragons, but today I am thinking about not needing to spend any more money on War Dragons.
So, why did I create this post? Two reasons I guess. One, to remind folk this bug is indeed still out there, and two, to see if some other players can remind me of enough good reasons to not retire from this experience.
War dragons is conceptually a beautiful, deep and enjoyable concept. But it is so poorly implemented and supported that I am not sure it is worth it to me any more.
Off to create my ticket …
