The West Team
Inno's main focus right now is on making new games and on their very popular games like Grepolis. The West is just a backwater project, kept alive because people still play it and it still brings in some cash.
(..) to me it seems unbelievable that they actually chose to let the number of players decrease, which in turn means less money for them - after they have invested so much in this product!?
why not advertise and try to sell this product to a larger number of players and earn more?
could it be that they gave up on The West? could it be that they don't want more people to play this game?
everything points to the conclusion that the answer is "yes". and I can't understand that business model.
These three from the 7 year old topic sums it up and still quite valid today.I've seen players playing this game again,
because either they want to duel or want to fort fight. I never seen someone back in this game for crafting or building forts.
Every updates widens the gap between premium and non-premium players.
Or someone playing the game at the very least. As far as I know Community Managers, and/or their head (Lead CM) doesn't.INNO would actually need someone that knows what he/she is doing and pay that person accordingly for their time which would be required to make this game fun again
Some people says, we can play the game because of those big spenders.What is in their budget though, is some players naivity and stupidity to pay for something that INNO messed up some time ago
If Inno ever re-sells the Union Officer set versus considering re-balancing fort fights via class abilities away from the already overwhelming advantages given to duelers and workers, it'll prove a) they are greedy and are going for the easy buck and b) they are simply lazy.Taste it? No thanks. The shaman may have better marketing with Union Pacific if they allow re-selling or making it a rare drop from jobs. Please ask the shaman if he's got some Potion of Invulnerability at fort fights, won't you?
