Any player or gamer that plays a game, wants to be told what is going on with their game and felspire players are no different.
Recently the players asked about the future of felspire at AMZ and were told by me that AMZ would continue to keep the game open as long as possible. That is no longer a decision that is in our hands.
30 minutes ago, I got the news that the games developers will be closing AMZ felspire and my heart sunk like a stone because there is no way for AMZ to keep the game open. Felspire servers are cross server hosted meaning that the master servers are owned by a different game host. Then I was told it would be next week meaning the 19th - the 23rd of march time frame, which is insanely short notice, not only for players but for AMZ as we have to look after our players first.
My first and immediate reaction was to ask about compensation and recharge compensation as players have invested time, effort and money into their felspire characters, and the loss of their game is hard enough, they want to know what is going to happen to their money investment and what AMZ intend to do for the players.
because we have only just found out ourselves, we may not have compensation information until next week
we generally compensate on other games and while we do have RoG english coming, we have not confirmed a launch date so we can not confirm if we can compensate on that game.
as soon as we have numbers and information, we will provide it for the players
Now I get that players are not going to be happy..... I have been involved in games in the past that have been shut down with short or no notice and I know actually how I felt, I would rather lose a relationship than the games I love.........my comments are not something I can post because of all the swearwords, so yes I understand that players are going to be angry ( totally f#####d off )
and its for that reason that this thread is going to be a uncensored mute free thread.... meaning that I will not take any action against players for forum rule breaches and I will post in it as I have information and answer questions......
players sometimes ask what the hardest part of my job is, the hours, the abuse, the bugs, the issues.... well honestly, its telling other gamers that their game that they love, is ending......and even tho I do not play FS, it does not make it any easier.....
