    Statement: Gold Furnace & Gold Forge - Temporary Removal from the Shop

    EDIT:

    If you were wondering where the gold production buildings had gone, here's what we would like you to know:
    • You will find these buildings back in the shop this week;
    • However, now, there will be a cap on the number of buildings you can purchase;
    • You can buy the Gold Forge in the shop 5 times (allowing you to get 5 gold every 12 hours)
    • The Gold Furnace can be bought 3 times (harvesting 50 gold every 48 hours)

    You are probably wondering: How else can I obtain these gold buildings?
    • In the near future, they will be available in promotional packs;
    • Promotions will not be limited by the shop's cap.


    We appreciate your continued support and all of the constructive criticism that has been sent our way.

    _____

    Dear Psy Captains,

    We have temporarily removed the Gold Furnace & Gold Forge from the shop, however, these buildings will definitely be brought back into the game as soon as possible.

    For all the players who already have previously purchased these buildings:
    Your gold buildings have suffered no changes and they are fully functional.

    We apologize for the short-notice nature of this statement. We will make sure to forward all of your feedback to the responsible team.

    Thank you in advance for your understanding.

    Kind regards,
    The MGG Team

    Jack has a point though... it was a very bad idea from a business perspective and was completely open to abuse. Nobody had the foresight to think about the revenue loss of the feature because the team wanted to please their playerbase.. At the moment, Kobojo looks like a McDonalds... If you rage about something and demand things enough, a McDonalds Manager will likely come out and give you free coupons and possibly void the cost of your meal due to whatever fault there was. Why? to keep their customers.... When your system was abused, and your pride and joy of a creation (britany) became the most infamous mutant in the arena, players suggested to deny the power that made her and Buranka truly unique.. Because McDonalds is the kind of business that doesn't want to "lose" customers, they decided to go ahead and fold under the pressure. A while back I saw the thread that suggested the Gold building.. to generate free gold.. and I thought at the time.. "Oh boy!! wouldn't that just be Lovely" but of course I am a player... and not the business head.. and would welcome any sort of advantage I can get to get closer to putting a close on the game I am playing.. But since I am a seasoned gamer that wanted to make this game prosper... I Criticized the idea as much as I could before the admin came and forwarded it to the team... at which point there was nothing I could do.. It makes NO sense WHATSOEVER to offer an indefinite form of PREMIUM currency... You guys Really should have seen that coming. Now that Players have already Purchased so many of the buildings you cannot simply limit it.. Why? Because it would be unfair that they spent all that money justt to get ahold of their Completely FREEMIUM future in the game. But their revenue is pretty much lost anyways because if they have so much gold buildings they never have to spend again, right? Whether they leave the game or not is irrelevant because theres no money coming from them anyways.. So why not just go ahead and put a limit for the players that haven't gone over yet? NOPE!!! We can view other people's Rooftops.. if other players see one that has a bajizzillion Gold buildings.. thats systematic revenue loss.... YUP.. You lose by making a limit.. Scratch that idea out now.. But what about reducing production rates? Not even funny.. Don't do it... Again you will lose players because of it.. We paid for an awesome feature... you don't see Produce salesmen taking bites out of the apple you just bought from them because it was too "juicy"... Bad Business call.... Removing the feature completely falls into the same category.. and it would be suicidal to allow all that gold buildings purchased to remain and not have the building itself up for sale ever again.. Why? That really doesn't need to be answered now does it?.

    DO NOT... and I strongly emphasize as I repeat this.... DO NOT REMOVE THIS FEATURE AND REFUND THE COSTS!!!! That will be the end of this game... We expected a long term investment when we purchased those buildings... thats why we paid such a heavy price for such a tiny return rate.. Even if we get to keep the gold or content that was purchased using the gold that was generated and get all the gold back from the initial costs.. even if you threw in an extra 10,000 gold as an apologetic compensation... It will ruin your image as a business as well as the game. Not that your image really matters now because of your track record thus far.. But still, handle this with integrity.. DO NOT NERF!! And most certainly DO NOT MAKE YOUR PLAYERS WAIT too long for it to return!! If you want some ideas on how to balance the feature without taking too much of a blow.... Hugo has my facebook..

    Hello Kenneth,

    You made some fair points regarding what you would not like to see in the re-work of this building - We value your opinion and are very grateful that you are exposing it on the forum.

    I would ask you, however, that you leave your ideas on what you think should be done pertaining to this feature, in the forum as well, rather than just discussing it privately with Hugo. This way more engaged MGG players can discuss your suggestions and throw their 2 cents in. :)

    Thanks in advance,
    A

    What is there to suggest really?
    A reasonable cap on the quantity of the towers could work. Or limiting it to 1 furnace tower which can be upgraded 30 times or so max.

    But who cares at this point really... I bought 2000g yesterday for the sole purpose of buying my 5th furnace, without realising furnaces are now gone from the shop, as the app had no adequate warning. I now have the gold sitting in the balance, which I do not really have a use for (other then investing in some of the towers in the long run).

    It ultimately feels like the 2000g offer was put up for the sole purpose of milking a tiny bit more before some players clock on. It's wasted cash for me, so that's pretty much the last of my money I'd put into this, no matter how this is resolved.

    Get your well deserved downgrades to 1 star on the Play Store, I guess, stay cool.

    My opinion personally or my opinion as a general player? Because McDonalds also values their customer flows as well but that doesn't necessarily mean they truly value their customer.... Don't get me wrong, I want the best for the game and that also means the best for the company, and I completely understand why my ideas should be expressed openly and discussed in a place where all players can read and express their own points and views on the matter. But not everything I post gets read seriously, and the most sensible posts that I have made were taken pretty lightly. So I really can't tell how much of a difference I am making unless I get direct feedback from either the team or someone in contact with the team. As far as 2 cents goes.... you are losing revenue.. you can keep as many "2 cents" as you can on the forums.. but not every player reads the forums, and not many of the ones that do actually respond to what they read. 2 cents kept here vs the many Dollars lost by BOTH the feature itself AND the apple biting Sales Pitch maneuver that you guys just pulled.

    A reasonable cap on the quantity will have to be OVER the maximum amount that has been purchased by a single user.. Some players already filled an entire rooftop with the buildings.. they cannot cap the amount...

    Upgrading? Yeah.. the problem is they see the money they lose to the feature.. Not a good idea to make that loss any bigger..

    Hey Benjamin,

    The team has realized there might be a need to rework these buildings. We need some time to analyze their current impact in the game, before we can give you more details. Sorry about that.

    Thank you for your patience while we try to figure out what needs to be done.

    Hey William,

    Are you sure they're not hidden? If you are sure that 2 of your buildings are missing, please report this situation to our customer support.

    Thank you in advance,
