There has been a lot of talk recently about the game nearing its end of life and Scopely apparently trying to shut the game down. If anyone had even half a brain cell, they could work out that this simply is not true.
Revenue - RTS has made around $50k today in revenue ONLY on the iPhone in the US. That is $18,250,000 per year. If you include other devices and other countries, you could be looking at $60 MILLION a year. Why on earth would they kill off such a massive income source?
New hires - Scopely have communicated on several occasions that they have had an influx of new staff members to help work on this game. Glassdoors reviews also confirm this to be true. Investing money into new hires to work on a dying game isn’t exactly a good business move.
One of the biggest complains is the lack of communication from Kali and the other forum mods. But think about it. Really sit and think about this one.
If you went to work this morning and everyone started insulting you, saying you are bad at your job and just being plain nasty, would you talk to them, or even continue to work there?
Kalishane used to post a lot of information and used to reply to a lot of threads. People didn’t like what she had to say so they resorted to personal insults which is absolutely disgusting. We have relayed our opinions to Kalishane and it is her job to rely that information to others at Scopely and it appears she has done that. If Scopely fail to act on that information, thats down to them, not Kalishane.
The atmosphere on this forum is worse than it has ever been. The decisions made by Scopely over the past 12 months are the cause of that, but there was no need for the keyboard warriors to start insulting people when they know full well they wouldn’t say those things in person to another human being.
If you want to complain about an event then by all means go ahead, i have always done the same and i will continue to do so. But keep the personal insults away from this forum.
This forum must be very intimidating to the mods for the above reasons. If the forum was more approachable, maybe we would see more communication which will lead to much needed changes in the game.
