    Thank you @YZERMN, we share the same thoughts. So I just want the damage to be repaired. Everything was and is very unclear, so I just made a wrong decision. But I want all three players reverted. I still have to think about what to do with the WoF-Upgrades. Maybe you are right, just 2-3 players of WoF-Level, the rest remains on Master Planet. The only problem is, that once you upgraded the player, the damage (for the future) is done.

    Think about when the new season begins. You upgrade a player to WoF, then he gets injured. You have to invest in him, even if he misses the whole season. 

     

    @Brino: I also opened a ticket.

    Hi @ Angelo
    You are correct. It is a huge gamble.
    I am willing to try 1 or 2 players on the new planet, but when I am unable or unwilling to renew.....gone. The fact they do not go back to the highest level you previously had them is ridiculous. That is why I quit playing the last tournament and won Marcus Smart. Did not have him on my roster and won't spend anything to update or renew him. So he goes to platinum planet....but nothing lost.
    I am laughing at these rosters I see where teams allready have 6,7,8 players at hall of fame level. There teams will be good now, but in 60-120 days when you have to renew them all, it's not sustainable unless you are spending hundreds of $ per month. We were all willing to spend a little, but I guess that was not enough for the developers. I hate it not I don't want to upgrade anyone or play the special tournaments to win a hall of fame "rental" Feeks like there is not much more to do, and I don't want to "improve" my team further because of the massive costs

    There is a "POINTS" button right above playoffs bar. There are three tabs in the menu, "GLOBAL", "PLANET", "COUNTRY" and when I touch "COUNTRY" tab, the flag of North Korea is placed beside my point figure. It is not even possible to select North Korea from MY ACCOUNT menu.

    And I still haven't received my league reward from last week. My ID is 1:2903780.

    I don't want to explain what "communicate" means, ^^ I won't talk about this any more. This game is unpredictable.

    Another question.  We have already established that if a World of Fame player's contact is not renewed he will drop down to platinum level.  So assume that on WoF level I maxed him out to level 65, then failed to resign him and now have him at platinum level.  If I restore his WoF level by buying the player again at auction do I get him at level 1 or at level 65?

    Hi @Angelo and @YZERMN,
    I hear what you're saying, but this was not an error on our end. I'm sorry, but we cannot make these kinds of changes just because you're not satisifed with the new features in the game.

    @STRANGE,
    There was an issue with the league and the rewards weren't sent out to many users, so the best way for us to resolve it is by you sending your User ID (Which you have done) and us adding it into your account. I've gone ahead and added it into your account now.

    Regarding the flag issue, in fact, we can see that, for some reason, the flags got swapped and it was showing the wrong flag. We're resolving that now and it'll be reflected in the game as soon as possible.

    @Don Platon,
    Unfortunately I can't confirm exactly when he will be available or the price since that depends on the level he's put in at, but I'll see if we can add him in sometime soon.

    @Zinn Beck,
    If he drops to the Platinum level, he'd have the same level as he had on the WOF planet. If you sign him again on the WOF planet, the player would merge again as usual when you sign a player on the new planet.

    Well, you recently introduced days of contract renewal as a reward in the jobs section. After the job completion, why “days” are not provided as other extra rewards in the promotion areas, like push ups, coins or cash? In the new system that you designed, this is a serious miss.....

    I can accept the WoF idea as a means to provide temporary power up when one chooses to spend real $ or use their hard earn cash/coins.

    But the implementation of this WoF contract expiry is extremely bad. For example, I upgrade a lvl 65 Master into a WoF. Supposed I spend time and money to train this player to lvl 65 WoF. Now I am forced to continue renewing the player contract using money (doubt we can earn enough renewal days). If I failed to renew, he will be downgraded not to a Master but a Platinum lvl 65 >>> This means my time and money in training him has gone down the drain and he becomes a worse player than before (Platinum obviously weaker than the Master). If this is the case, in the long run, I don't know how FTB can make this WoF successful. I mean how many GMs can afford to upkeep their roster on WoF permanently.

    @jannz14,
    I’m wondering if this game, with the contract renewal feature, has turned into a betting game....

    I still did not receive my league reward yet. I finished 1st place last week, but it seems that I earned some cash instead of 100 coins and power up.

    @roberto,

    my guess is that FTB wants to introduce WoF as means of temporary power up which I can accept but what I cannot accept this the way it handles the out of contract / downgrade process. I mean it is not logically for a previous Diamond or Master GM to temp upgrade his Diamond or Master player to WoF and then later after contract expires becomes a Platinum player.

    Seriously this is a terrible idea. Game data are all stored on databases, the FTB developers should have means to record the player's previous planet and level and downgrade correctly. Removing the Diamond and Master planets totally and forcing us to downgrade to platinum after contract ends is like a cheap low blow.

    if I knew I would be getting back Platinum players, I wouldn't have upgrade my westbrook and magic on the first day. So now I will not be buying the elgin baylor pack. Under normal circumstances I would have purchase the packs.

    @angelo Mauceri,
    I received some days because of my position in the ‘monthly ranking’

    ....about the ranking, can somebody explain how is possible that few hours after the beginning of June there are managers with 20.000 points in the ranking????

    This is very odd, to say the least....

    Hi @Roberto,
    The Renewal days can be obtained in the following ways:
    – Tournaments
    – Special competitions (All-Star Week, St. Patrick’s, Conference Finals, etc.)
    – New Renewal job
    – Daily Bonus (random)
    They currently aren't rewarded when promoting the jobs though which I think is what you're referring to.

    Regarding the ranking, I'm not sure why they would already have that many points, but I'm going to check into it with the development team because it has to be an error.

    @Jannz14,
    I know you think that the downgrade is worse, but the Platinum planet was upgraded so that it would be like the Master planet, so really it's not that steep of a downgrade as you think. You also don't have to spend real money to play the game or make it this far. Spending real money is up to the user, and there are many users in the game who haven't spent real money and are on the WoF planet.

    @STRANGE,
    I added the reward into your account yesterday before replying. You finished in 2nd place in the All-Star division, so your reward was 50 coins and 15,000,000 cash. In your account, it shows it was added 0:42:09 hours. Here is a screenshot from your account:

    @Angelo,
    Yesterday I mentioned that I added the one you didn't receive for the job error. The other 2 may have been from a Daily bonus and watching a video to get the 2nd one. You also could have received them from the ranking. Do you remember which position you ended up in?

    @Brino,
    Well now those ‘supermanagers’ with 20.000 points plus in the ranking disappeared but still the ranking, few hours in June, isn’t just credible.... why don’t you explain exactly, one by one, which are the criteria and the corresponding points? Don’t you think you’re not transparent, again? I can’t believe, again, that by 10 a.m (gmt +1) some managers already have 7.000 points or more....I think somebody hacked the game or you have a serious bug or......?
    How can I trust this new feature and the whole game?

    @Brino,

    I understand that you are doing your job as support and I appreciate your assistance to the community. The frustration / feedback were aimed more towards the developers.

    Anyway since I now got 2 players on WoF I will give it a shot and see how I can continue on in WoF. :)

    Hi @Brino,

    I saw now that you can win some days on some tournaments (Brooklyn, Chicago and Memphis). That is a good news. Please add this to more tournaments, and we all will be more happy with your WoF-Update. Why onle these tournaments? At the end we should be able to win some hundred days every month.

     

    Thank you

    I think the idea of WOF planet and giving players a bonus boost by applying contract days is a not a bad idea. However, the way it is currently set-up raises a lot of question marks. As other users already mentioned, especially the down grade after contract expiry is unacceptable.

    What should have been done -and this is just a suggestion- is making WOF a stand alone planet with a higher planet bonus (for example 150 vs 100 on platinum) and by adding a contract to the player it gives that player an upgraded planet bonus upto 240 (instead of the standard 150 given as an example). If a contract expires, the player falls back to planet bonus 150 but remains on his player level. If you decide to give that player a new contract (single renewal days or buyed contract packs) he gets the additional planet bonus again (150–>240). By doing so, adding a contract still has a big advantage because the player gets significantly better but we would not need to train the players over and over again after reaching WOF planet. This still makes it a more strategic game because you can benefit if you keep yourself updated about real life player status (player injuries, taking part in all star game, taking part in playoffs etc.) that could effect the dicision to apply a contract or not.

    The above is just a suggestion, trying to make the game playable and acceptable. And since most WOF managers that bought WOF players still have around 60 days left on their contracts, you have some time to sort out this flaw in the current set up :)

    - Let us sort our player Roster by Total Value and/or Planet 

    ... that would help me a lot in planning my roster!

    I would also like to get answer to the question brought up by @Roberto regarding how so many players got such high points towards the monthly league in such limited time. I mean without the weekly leagues ending, there must be only a limited amount of points you can earn from tournament wins and player advancements. Maybe a few managers accelerate things via coins but I would doubt hundreds of managers doing it. Can you please look into it.

    The reason is very simple. In the closing hours it was possible to recharge energy with videos UNLIMITED. Each video you got 50 energy, so you could fill it up non-stop for a limited period of time. That way you could increase your ranking very fast.

    That I understand but we are actually referring to the new June competition in which many managers reached thousands of points (not talking about the glitch) within a couple of hours. I guess people were well ahead in the tournaments which again is curious as the new planet opened up so recently but it is true that they may have gotten ahead by using coins etc.

    I vividly remember that I finished 1st place last week. I also saw you won the league message. I even remember who was the opponent from Semi-final. I think there's a problem in your database. Okay, forget it.

    What about a janitor to pull up the strings in the weekends, when the game is deserted by those who should check on the game functionalities?

    @Roberto,
    All of the points are explained in the section "Points > Points (i)"
    Everything is explained there, so I don't understand why you're saying we're not being transparent about that.
    We understand that there are still technical issues that need to be resolved and we're working to resolve them as soon as possible.

    @Luca,
    Which jersey are you referring to exactly? Do you mean in the Playoffs competitions? If so, those are real jerseys, not virtual rewards.

    @jannz14,
    Thanks for clarifying that and thank you. I appreciate you giving it another chance! Let me know if you have any further questions.

    @Angelo,
    For now they are only available as rewards in certain levels/tournaments. I'll share your suggestion to the team to look into adding them into more tournaments.

    @Leslie,
    Thanks for your message. I'm going to send it to the corresponding team to look into and take into account.

    @fabolousoh,
    I'll send your suggestion to the team. For any further suggestions, please send them in our "Suggestions" thread so that I can share them easily with the development team.

    @CHAD,
    There was recently an error where more than the correct amount of points were rewarded for the Ranking. We've correct that error and removed the points that did not correspond to those accounts. Everything should be correct now. All of the points are explained in the section "Points > Points (i)"
    Also, like @fabolousoh says, because of the Energy videos, many users were able to play continuously and finish all of the tournaments, gaining many points.

    If you have any further questions, please let me know.

    Dear Brino,

    What do you mean of real jerseys and not virtual award regarding the top 1 in the playoffs competition? You mean, you will give the top 1 a real jersey? You will deliver it in his house?

    Hi @Don Platon,

    If the 1st place reward for the Special Competition shows a real prize, then it's a prize that we would send to the user's house, yes. However, you have to finish in that position to win it. Let me know if you have any further questions.

    Let me clarify some things because I'm contending in the Finals. You mean if I finished 1st place, you will deliver a Nash Jersey in my house even though I am from the Philippines?
