    Hi Roberto, since the WoF planet came up I did not spend a cent. It doesnt make any sense any more but thats a different topic.

    Last month I finiyhed in the top 30 wothout spending money and at the moment I am third without spending money. I play as many tournaments ad I can, somrtimes I also spend coins for energy.

    @Roberto,
    Thanks for your feedback about the ranking. I've shared it with the team. I can assure you that the ranking includes users who have not paid any money in the game. The ranking is not specifically for the users who spent money in the game. It's for all users, regardless of how much they've spent in the game. There are users in the WoF planet and haven't spent anything.

    I’m sure about that, because I don’t spend real money and I’m in it....the fact is that to achieve the best positions it’s not enough to win all the possible tournaments or improve the players....for example, at one point, unless you wait time (days) to play the best rewarding tournaments, to bypass that and recharge the energy endlessly, you will have to use tons of coins and eventually you will spend real money....you can’t deny this ‘logic’!
    That’s why I think that the ranking is pointless......

    Hey guys, I've been playing the game now for a while and I'm enjoying it so far (still didnt get to the WoF-Planet)
    Now today I've got the ofer for a pack with Durant on lvl20 plus the usual stuff (420 coins,40m cash) for 8,58. I already got him on lvl 30: now, what happens in that case buying, will he be raised or exchanged for another one?

    Thanks and greetings

    Hm, yeah I already saw that some of you experienced different prices earlier as well. Don't know. I'm from germany but living in Spain...so probably its cheaper here. Anyway, you have any idea what happens if I buy this package having Durant on my team already?

    For purchases, when you already have the player, that same player gets a level increase, you do not gain a different player to your roster.

    And I have noticed the price differences in the past too, Apple wad always cheaper than android. Figures as Apple users always got the updates and such first too. I would log in on an iPad just to make a purchase, nothing else.

    Hey @Roberto,
    I understand what you're saying. If you have any suggestions on how to improve that part of the game, please share them in our "Suggestions" thread, which the team has access to, can view and take into account for future updates.

    @Johnny-Martini,
    Can you please send me your User ID so that I can check into this and resolve it for you as soon as possible?

    @Magicaleagle and @Roberto,
    Regarding @Johnny-Martini's comment, please keep in mind that the prices depend on the currency. It's not the same in every country for that reason. It's not something that has to do with iTunes or Android.

    @brino, you mean that in germany and italy (or spain) there are different currencies? Don’t insult my (and other managers’) intelligence, por favor.....johnny-martini and Angelo Mauceri also noticed that and they’re from one of those countries. 

    Then, admit that you put a price on those packs, different  from manager to manager or country to country. Since this is not fair at all, you should put a remedy, once and for all.

    Hi @Roberto,

    I kindly ask you to refrain from this kind of behavior in the forum. I'm not insulting anyone's intelligence. I was never told that the user was in Germany, so I could not have known that. I'm simply saying that not all currencies are the same. It's obvious that the Euro is the same in Germany and Italy, so the price should be the same. I will look into this with the team to find out what could have happened.

    If you still have the offer in your account, please send me a screenshot of what you see.

    Thank you

    @brino,
    Look back in this very section 16 days ago, when me and Angelo Mauceri told about this already...and we said clearly where we are from!

    @Roberto,
    Yes, Angelo Mauceri is in Germany, however, your response was in regards to Johnny-Martini Berlin, correct? In any event, now I see that he did mention he was in Germany in his second response, so that was something that I missed on my end.

    Hey guys, sorry if I may caused some iritation; just to make sure. I AM german but I live (not visit) in spain. All my accounts and whatever are here. So I have no idea how much are the packages in germany. Just for spain I know I never had any more than 11 something. The las finals mvp with Durant was 8,52 for me

    Hi @Johnny-Martini,
    You don't need to be sorry for anything. There was just a bit of confusion, but everything is clear. Don't worry ;)

    I’d like to involve other managers, to know their point of view about the ‘ranking’ feature.I’m actually ranked globally #333.....I noticed that a manager, who actually is ranked globally #4, was in the same weekly league, senior level, last week. He was eliminated in the playoffs semifinals, while I won the league.I’ve also just defeated the current globally ranked #10 in the opening match of the current weekly league, all star level.

    Roberto, the ranking is not about who has the best team. It is who is playing the game the most. Completing tournaments, leveling players, etc.
    I am at #15 right now, but I am only started World of Fame a week ago.

    @steve,
    That’s exactly my point....ultimately, who spend (real money) the most.

    I disagree.  I was up at #10 before being promoted to WOF last week, but i haven't spent anything since $3 in January on a starter pack.  I also didn't use any coins to buy energy or to speed up leveling.  I just played tournaments and leveled players normally.  

    Perhaps the players in the top few slots are putting in money to fight for the #1 spot, but certainly you do not need to spend money to get up in the top 50.

    @Steve,
    the presence of a ranking equals to competition.....if you can’t reach the highest positions without spending money, it is meaningless

    Hi Brino,

    I installed the Android Update right now. Thank you for the adaptive Icon. :)

    Can you tell us which bugs have been fixed?

    Hi @Angelo,

    This version included some internal bug fixes that aren't visible to the user. It was to try to improve the function of the app in general.

    Hi to the other players,

    I now have upgraded 5 players to WoF Level 65. That's all I can upgrade since I don't want to spend money or coins for contract days. Most of the days I playI am earning 6 contract days through tasks and tournament.

    How are you upgrading the players to WoF? What are you doing to earn more contract days? Or are you spending coins and money for the renewals?

    I must be honest, I have lost the fun to play the game...

     

    @Brino: Will the game remain like this or are you rethinking the whole renewal disaster?

    Hi @Angelo,

    For the moment, the game will remain like this, however, I cannot yet confirm any changes since we have not yet had any meeting to discuss any new changes. As soon as I'm informed of anything like this, I'll let you guys know.

    Ciao Angelo!
    As you noticed, we are in the same weekly league!
    I actually have 6 wof players, +1 (rondo) upgraded to wof by default when I was promoted to wof level....
    I plan to upgrade to wof a couple more players (Davis and another center, beyond Chamberlain), while I will not ‘renew’ the contract of Rondo.....
    I agree that the game lost most of the “appeal”....but don’t expect the game “owners” to lose their money catching creature.
    See you in the weekly league ;-)

    Hello guys,

    I mentioned this in another thread, but I mention it here as well:

    I don't understand what is the problem with the renewals? As Brino mentioned, this feature is to be closer to reality. 

    How do you imagine it in reality? Do you see teams with 5 starters and 5 bench players to be the absolutely top10 players in the league? Not possible due to cap space IRL. (GSW with 5 all stars now are somewhat a bad example already, and I believe they will collapse in 1-2 years). Also if you are willing to pay over the cap IRL, then you have to pay serious luxury tax --> somewhat parallel to you paying real life money here. 

    I know it is very good to have all the best players in your line-up, but how is that a reality? Maybe it is just me, but I like games where you are close to reality and not a fairy tail fantasy where you can own everyone and everything. This is not how life goes. 

    I strongly agree with this contract renewal stuff, even though the amount of days could be a bit more maybe, or the price of renewal a bit less money, but this has just been released. Try to have suggestions to improve it and stay away from trying to keep 10-20+ top players in your team. 

    I wrote in the suggestions to have more tactics introduced like roles for bench players, rotation setup, 2nd role, etc. But this system can stay in my eyes.

    Hi Everybody,

    I am not very impressed with the new timer limiting the rate I can watch free coin videos.  

    How does this add to the play ability and enjoyment of this game?

    Greg.

    They did it again...changing their own rules without a previous announcement, and again in the weekend so they won’t care about complaints for a couple of days. 

    Every time they say there is a problem to be fixed, they suspend it and then they reactivate it, for worse! 

    On iOS devices, the feature of watching videos ads granting coins for free now oblige every manager to enter the game every 15 minutes, because you can watch only one video every 15 minutes!!!!! And those videos don’t add up if you enter the game with a longer frequency! This is ridiculous. Once again, they pursue their only policy, rewarding managers spending real money for the so called ‘promotion packs’.This is their only policy. I remind the developers and supporting team that this feature until last year was unlimited. Then you started to introduce limits, with a very varied fantasy...But This is your decision, and yours only: please do not involve other ‘subjects’ responsibility.

    Roberto

     

    ps: in every organization, the support team works alongside the development department, so that every implementation is followed up in real time.....
