Post subject:  AGAIN!!! Illegal Prize Changes AFTER world ends!

The new topic on end prizes thread in the forum has been LOCKED by moderators. They don't want the usual outcry over their constant attempts to cut prizes in direct contradiction to the terms set out in August 2017. Same moderator Lord Alacrity apologised for the mistake when world 8 ended. Now Monde1 has ended and they have once again given pathetic prizes and are forcing us to accept them by closing threads when people want to complain!

Monde1 was in age 5 at the correct time. Do they think we are stupid? Every time they do this I plan to leave! I haven't spent a penny on this game in months because of their attitude!

proof of fifth age starting on the 23/03/2015

Have a look at the printscreen of the last issue regarding this. Some clever person saved it!

Maybe you should read the posts from Lord Alacrity where he cleared that up . . . .

How exactly did Lord Alacrity clear it up? He stated the following:

"The adjustment was made and announced last year and only worlds which were in Age 4 or earlier at the time (April 2017) would be impacted. Worlds which were in Age 5 or later would still receive the prize which had been first announced. This was done in communication with the community and the Wiki was updated to reflect only the current prize to mitigate confusion. No changes have been made since then."

However, Monde1 did NOT get the original prizes even though they were in Age 5 from 2015.

Not even the same thread MiladySkye.
The point is, this is the third time in succession that they've tried this... 'mistake' lark giving the rubbish prize to see if they can get away with it, then players get angry, annoyed. So they back down and say 'oh sorry, mistake, let us investigate and fix this AGAIN!' .... (until the next world closes... mwahahahahahaha! Then we'll rinse and repeat...) :twisted:

We still have AmericaLatina 1, USA1, World 1, World 2, World 7 that fit the criteria of the Age 5 rule ... so 5 more rounds of this dance...

Unfortunately when we have to create exceptions, this can sometimes lead to difficulties. The idea of grandfathering in worlds was done so as not to disadvantage World 8 which was close to the Final Age. Obviously we do not want to disadvantage long-time active players, but as other posters have noted the original Bronze Prize was exploited, which in turn negatively impacts the community. It is in no one's best interests to flood so many accounts with so many cards for so little effort and contribution to the game and the community. Now, one year later with all of those worlds still in the Fifth Age and the continued confusion, we may re-evaluate this decision. We could potentially announce an end to the grandfathered period after a particular date or perhaps allow accounts to win the original prize only once.

That being said, we will be auditing the Bronze Prize recipients to hopefully identify any accounts which appear to be exploiting the prize.

Our goal in all of this is to ensure the integrity, quality, and balance of the game. We've heard from players upset about the prize being exploited as well as players who are afraid of not getting their deserved reward and we're working to find solutions that satisfy everyone.
