@roastedbagel I listened to the show, and although I do really enjoy it, I found myself shaking my head at what was being said that the only thing the community were annoyed about was “how kabam told us”. That’s not what’s going on here. Yeah sure it didn’t help, but I’ve been following this thread very closely and participating too.
So here is the issue I have with what Dragon said. Here is the quote: “That’s [referring to the moderator response being how we found out it was compensation] what caused all the outrage, that is literally the single driving factor in all of the outrage is that, ‘this was the compensation, we weren’t actually told it was compensation until we asked’ and now that we found out after the fact in the way we did, people have become even angrier.
I agree that this is ONE OF the things people are annoyed about, but it’s not the only.
People are annoyed by a range of things.
-how kabam told us: it should have been clear that this was compensation at the very start. We shouldn’t have had to ask, wait for Lyra to vaguely tell us and then a day (I think, or at least hours) later, Vydious to confirm.
-appreciation: it’s being all wrapped up as a kabam saying how much they appreciate us, when it should be compensation. Kabam are trying to spin this as though they are being nice and making sure we all feel thought about. When, in reality, this is to make up for all the issues of the past month
-forced to choose how we were affected: I get that the cast like this part, but a lot of us here don’t. I was affected in arena, Aq, Aw and event quests, but I need to choose where I was affected most? Where can I get the shards I lost from arena, the glory from aq, the shards from Aw, the energy from event quests? You even said yourself that you were android and weren’t affected, but surely you understand how others were?
-the compensation doesn’t make up for the issues, it let’s US make up for it: look at arena one. We get boosts and stamina refills, so we need to put more effort in to make up for what we lost. This isn’t a major one, but still part of it.
-kabam are distancing themselves, from us and the problem: there hasn’t been a mention of the overheating at all. Just “the issues of 19.0”. Kabam seem like a kid not wanting to say sorry to a sibling. They are also ignoring us, this thread has over 43k views and 780 comments, but 2 from kabam officials. Only clarifying it’s compensation, then leaving us to talk, rant and be angry. Kabam are giving an air of utter uncaring to us. And it sucks.
Dragon says in the podcast, that “the package is wonderful. The presentation of it was just a nightmare”. And this does not represent the communities thoughts. Like I said, I get that you like it. And that’s fine, I’m not telling people to dislike it, but we do not think the package is wonderful. No matter what way kabam had wrapped it up.
And look, I’m not throwing shade at anyone at the podcast, I love what you guys do. I just wanted to kinda correct what was being said that this was the only thing we were annoyed about. It felt like all our outrage was being devalued to “oh they were just annoyed that kabam didn’t say it was compensation”. It’s a lot deeper than that.
I hope you could address this on the podcast next week, and not as in a “You should correct yourselves” way, because that’s not what I’m trying to get across here. I just don’t want this anger that the community feels to be painted in a mob, pitchfork, anger, flames light. Because that’s what it seems like. I want our views to be represented, as clearly as you, Deacon, Dragon and JJ etc can all represent your views.
Look forward to the next episode.

Anybody care to say anything?
Is this the improved communication and transparency we were promised by YOU????

So with just a couple of days left before SA kicks off, it'd be safe to say the moderators won't be commenting anytime soon. For a couple reasons as I see it. And this is simply my opinion.
Kabam has instructed the mods to remain silent until the event starts. A couple have already commented and it only infuriated the community and fuelled peoples anger.
From what I can merely surmise is that Kabam has read our posts and possibly throwing more resources into each package for us to choose from. If a mod came on here and informed us of this, it could have a far more detrimental effect if the added resources still don't meet the majority of the communitys expectations. And they may even remove the need to choose a package and throw the whole lot our way, as we have told them in our posts that ALL game modes were affected. Due to the typical lack of transparency from Kabam regarding just what specifically is in each package, this gave them the option to improve the quality without the need for notifying the community. So when the details DO come through, we may be pleasantly surprised. I have some strong doubts but this could be a strong possibility.
Another reason for the mods silence could very well be they actually support our points of view. Remember they are players too. So if they put their players caps on, would they be satisfied themselves. So for the sake of not looking somewhat hypocritical, they're remaining silent. Again I'm probably clutching at straws but the sheer lack of communication has ignited the imagination.
Another thing that's got me somewhat baffled is the 1000 5 star shards. If they are a gift for players at all levels, I can't help but wonder why there aren't any 3 or 4 star shards. 5 star shards don't seem to suit all, especially the junior new players. Whereas they would appreciate 3 and 4 star shards. Not that I need or want 3 star shards but some 4's are always welcome.
I really am just throwing ideas out there guys, so keep your replies polite please lol

We deserve a compensation comparable or better than 12.0
The game has to go forward not backwards, fraud, piloting are rampant and the game hardware and mechanics we're completely diminished.
If you take advantage of spawning revives that's an exploit, but if you buy fraudulent units that's ok.
WE ARE DUE COMPENSATION FOR A LOT OF THINGS
Not just the latest issues, this game should have never gone through 12.0 and now they had the chance to give back to us and show appreciation.
All they have done is talk down to us, patronize us and treat us like condescending parents.
I'll tell you what, we've show you that YOU ARE WRONG, that we are NOT HAPPY and that we DO NOT FEEL APPRECIATED.
And what you do is spin it around to make us the villains and the rest of your acolytes praise everything you do. Another Disney franchise that used the same tactic is now 50 million in the red because they fans turned their backs against them.
CAUTIONARY TALE: Don't turn your backs on the fans, listen and appreciate us, compensate us NOW and don't regret it later. Or you'll be richest company in the cinder.

Time to make a decision, do you stay with the prettiest girl or guy and keep buying them things to keep them happy as they constantly treats you like **** hoping one day you will wake up next to them and they magically have decided to change?
Or do you find someone who maybe isn’t as pretty, but they have a loving heart, compassion, communication and the willingness to nurture the relationship for both to be happy? At most times, we have a choice to be happy. Just depends on if you have the willpower (not mastery) to do it. At some point, with thousands of complaints. It’s just complaining. Where is our resolution.

@chunkyb I agree completely. I’m really not sure how someone who was following the conversation here would be able to conclude that we were only annoyed about the delivery. I mean, there were two polls right? One that you’ve screenshotted there and another that was about whether we felt appreciated and it was 93% in favour of “No”. That’s gotta say something right?
One last thing, I wanted to correct “Compensappreciation” to Comppreciation, I feel it rolls off the tongue better

So I guess they are going to just go on ignoring this thread until their "appreciation" goes live on the 24th. I love the way that this is being handled... I don't understand why they don't realize what is at stake for them. Mike told us that compensation is about making up for what summoners missed out on. Then the MCoC team decides to ignore this and create a complete garbage appreciation event that, one, in now way makes up for what we lost, and two, makes us choose which area of the game we were inconvenienced in when most summoners were inconvenienced in ALL areas of the game.
Where do the lies end? They cannot expect us to forget this when the lies that we were told were so blatantly obvious. Kabam cannot expect us to let something like this go when it is 100% their own fault. It is time to act mature and admit that they messed up. It is okay to mess up, we all understand you guys are human also. We can forgive. What we cannot do, however, is tolerate the constant assumption that Kabam is free to lie and get away with less than the bare minimum. We won't put up with it. No company that is willing to cheat their customers continuously will last, and unfortunately Kabam has put their foot over this line one too many times.
Act now before it is too late...
