Hello everybody, long time no see.
some time ago i left nearly all forums I’m registered, but i feel in need to come back for this post and REALLY HOPE someone @flare will see this, hopefully react. as I’ve heard today the Pro League won’t continue and free tickets just get deleted in less than 3 weeks? Yeah to most that’s no deal since only some people have more than 5 tickets in stock… but there exist some (maybe call them niche) players who play loyal for many years, but rarely hardcore and sometimes only do the events. they level up slower and many of them (by the way im also in this player group) probably are not level 101 yet (where you can start pro league with lvl130 max reward guaranteed) but just saved all the FREE TICKETS to play there for the best ingame equip when they reach this lvl.
What just happened now (if these tickets really just get deleted): its a HUGE disadvantage. i also would consider this highly unfair. All these tickets expire WITHOUT fair reimbursements (or any at all) and there is NO CHANCE to just use them for leagues. thats a flop…
for myself as example this means: 30 tickets getting deleted (i just switched lvl 100 like a week ago) wanted to start proleagues like in april or so - yeah great timing i know.
the reason why i left most forums is because of these people who will probably try to explain now, that it was free so no reason to be upset. please guys im done with this kind of talk - you should realize what kind of disadvantage it means to have like 30 unused participations most of the bigger players surely already absolved back then when they got the free tickets. i have to blame flaregames here, kicking the butts of many longterm active players and the VERY FIRST THING IN ALL OF RR2 i just cant accept to be true. It’s just to frustrating.
Also some of my friends (i introduced them to RR2 and gave them advice to keep them until they benefit from rewards they can use for ever) have similar situation and already saw some people asking just in the feedback thread.
if i had a wish: i want pro league to continue so this injustice would not be real.
but this big Decision was made, and I know the team will not cancel this. So all i have left is the wish for reimbursement. 400 gems per free ticket maybe (btw 30 tickets mean that i checked this little backyard panel in about a monthly pause period for 2,5 YEARS - and like many others i atleast was active daily in this whole time period) or something fairly priced ingame (maybe some important and reasonably priced item in the new season mode as EQUIVALENT exchange).
again some toxic members will say everyones own fault if the tickets are not used (in time!) - but ofc noone could know that there is the END of pro leagues after just 2,5 -3 years (e.g. war season are way less fun to my understanding and been going on since release i think ? (I started 5 years ago) - so the players couldn’t know this. and it’s sad fact that flare didn’t bother to give everyone the chance to spend all there tickets within leagues (OR AT LEAST some possibilty to play old pro leagues (each once if not played before) and just accumulate rewards based on the leaderbords back than or whatsoever) and then i read every now and then that there are cheaters getting boatloads of crystal and so on… obviously this them makes the real disadvantage give by this decision even worse.
there would have been ways to not upset this niche player base, but - based of what i know now - this longterm loyal part of the rr2 playerbase seems to get screwed like there was nothing before in RR2 - to experience this whil there is a brithday celebration gives me a bitter taste. Really sad that’s the actual situation - but i wouldn’t write this all just for nothing - i just have hope that the Team gets in touch with this problem. Maybe they just forget about this situation since there are so many highendplayers pushing forward… idk
And i really hope that all of the RR2 community can agree with what i said here (toxic trolls probably excluded (dont know if some of them are still around lol)) - I mean honestly think of this situation. Its affecting only some players with a huge amount of damage - no community should be willing in taking this, idk what kind of community the RR2 forum is about - but i hope it’s still kind of healthy and stable.
And just to end this, when you have 30 Tickets thats 22.500 gems (something like 100 € or $) ingame worth of an item that was heavily bought from many top players over 2,5 years (with heavily i mean that it REALLY MUST HAVE IT’S WORTH - not like most skippable upgrade times).
And often when there have been problems i remember seeing things like “omg after this glitch i will leave rr2” or whatsoever. But after this i really think some will sadly do it - im talking about players like myself (i dont say im leaving) that started on a way to low level when pro leagues came out and said to themself “once i finally get on this high level i also will fight for my rewards and enjoy the leagues” - and now that we are here, just a tiny bit before reaching a goal set in 2017 (!!!) all we can read feels like “yeah, well … you finally wont get your chance”
I’m sorry for this long paragraph - but it’s the first issue i need to address. I think flare did a great job developing this game and even if there were bugs - it always was fine in the end. But i think there never has been a disadvantage this enormous and i hope this is not the final state of the decision with pro-leagues ticket handling.
Heck even if they just bring 750 for every ticket you currently have… in my case (and i only played one pro league ever) this wouldn’t be enough gems for the 25k BS purchase (slot 4, no discount) - so i think regarding that all these tickets bring nothing from the so long planned pro-leagues and you can spend so much gems everywhere (e.g. event chests for some better rewards) - i even would consider the FULL REIMBURSEMENT of the 750 f(l)air Game ^^ - even if not paid for it, but really ingame worth it.
Thats it. I hope the communtiy can stand up for disadvantages (ofc all these niche players will try to, since they are affected. - But a good player base community shoul always stand up for injustice.
Thanks for your time, i appreciate it,
have a great day everyone !!!
