Yea I plan to do the same soon enough on at least 1 server (I play on 2) since it has ran out of people to run the Alliance(s) and Fort Battles while we had about a Dozen before Union Officer madness & J(uspaius) world opening, let alone Quality.I've gone on Vacation Mode on all my worlds, except the IFBC
I've gone on Vacation Mode on all my worlds, except the IFBC until that's finished with, since there are relatively very high quality battles there and i'm actually enjoying the game when PvP balance is considered. It's just not worth playing on these trash worlds which lack players to function properly. The obvious worry, as xShteff pointed out, is that we are approaching the time when they open a new world, instead of allowing old world merges to actually try to save this game and consolidate our dwindling playerbase. I don't want to be here to see that crap again or to continue with this ignorance by game management of literally anything that this community needs.
I'll be the first one to come back and migrate, and contribute my experience and leadership and money if Inno get their act together, but until then it's just too detrimental to my mental health to try so hard to push for the right things to happen for so long, and to be completely ignored. I'm not gonna play as a hostage to inno decision makers anymore. I don't truly know who is in charge of these things, but they should be let go and someone who played the game should replace them. Your KPI's mean NOTHING when your game doesn't function on a basic level. We are simply bleeding player numbers, no one spends nuggets, and i really don't blame anyone who gets paid by the company for not taking a harsher stance, since they fired the last person who tried to tell Inno that they need to make changes to the management style and actually listen to the feedback, and apparently a short term stable income is worth more to most than taking a small investment risk with the plan of having a functioning game that the players enjoy and will provide stable income long-term.
I truly appreciate every single one of you fellow players who made this game worth something. I've made some lifelong friends thanks to this game. Also thanks to the mods who do push the community concerns to those higher ups (especially @Nisa lately), it's quite clear that it will never make a difference, and was indeed the reason why I refused to work/volunteer for this company again, community feedback used to mean something, but now I refer to the company in my head as IgnoGames.
Stay safe and keep up the good fight in my absence if you are sticking around for some reason.
The fact that former staff members can go on a forum owned by innogames and air grievances against the company
It was never really a discussion thread, it was a bunch of salty old players and community leaders who once loved this game, telling some imaginary person, who likely doesn't exist to read these forums, what the community needs to go back to having a fun and semi-functional game again. A noble cause but indeed a lost one.The moment people start making memes and a discussion thread becomes a meme-spam corner, that is when you know it's a truly a lost cause..
Oh lol, right. What a show that was. FeelsWeirdMan.community leaders
Luckily everyone I talk to seems pretty open to joining discord servers now, so we can keep in contact without having the detrimental effects of the gambling simulator to contend with.

It's been a lost cause for years my dude. For some reason some of us thought that can change something and failed miserably. I am genuinely amazed to see people still pay for this game, seeing how quick sets become obsolete.
Any world not on the list is simply shut down and players allowed to migrate either to W1, CO, AZ or Idaho. The opening of new "long term" worlds can be permantently suspended in favor of the speed server that resets annually.
I highly doubt they will spend time/money for it after all these years of nothing.
Having given it some thought and seen many posts since the original post, I think this new way of organizing worlds might be the most optimal for the long term survival of the game.
El Classico - A permanent classic server, either in V1.00 or at the version after FFs were added to the game, but before any tombolas.
World 1 - PvE, Berry pickers world. FFs happen every now and then, duels can be enabled/disabled by players.
World Colorado - non-enhanced premium world. No buying of SP/AP or instant energy refill/job completion.
World Arizona - enhanced premium world I
World Idaho - enhanced premium world 2
Roadrunner XI - permanent speed world. It resets annually, with everything going back to scratch at the start of the year, specifically catering to the playerbase who likes shorter term and quicker gameplay.
Any world not on the list is simply shut down and players allowed to migrate either to W1, CO, AZ or Idaho. The opening of new "long term" worlds can be permantently suspended in favor of the speed server that resets annually. I feel that this formulation will be the most optimal, effectively catering to all sections of the playerbase, while continuing to give the company the revenues it needs from the game.
Obviously I appreciate people being loyal to a particular game world, even if Dorado has less than 5000 total accounts and doesn't fill small battles.Sorry but El Dorado is my main world and want to play and stay in there.Sorry no close for me that world because i love that world oke.
