    Good Morning,

    In short, you have raised the price of the renewal of the full license, and you have decided to pay just to keep the names of the players. Well, it seems to me that this game will lose a lot as you have left it right now and I am sure you will lose many players. I hope you can reach an agreement with the NBA.

     

    Good luck!!!

    Good Morning,

    The truth that is worth entering in the morning and see the players update without knowing who they have played, or anything.

    I guess the whole problem is money, I do not know if the positions are far from what they ask and what you offer, but what is certain is that as you do not solve this you will end up closing the game, because the truth, for those who We took this from the beginning this is discouraging, and as one partner said, one of the main things were the graphics, the faces of the players, the NBA logos, without all this the game stops making sense.

    I imagine, that in the tournaments they will no longer be given T-shirts by NBA players, that for me was a very important incentive, I was lucky to win one and many other times I stayed close, but if now for the only that we are going to fight is for players, it will stop making all the sense.

    Please, think about what I say, if this is not solved, little by little all the managers will be leaving this wonderful game.

    Good luck in the negotiations.

    Best regards

     I don’t know about the future...the present is ridiculous. The game has nothing to do with nba basketball anymore.

    Some considerations on the current situation, keeping in mind that I totally get that you run a business that needs to be profitable.

    Since the problem with the NBA is money (I cannot think of another possible reason) I suggest you to give in to their demands because:
    - NO ONE in his right mind would download the game as it is and start playing --> NO NEW USERS
    - If I had a monthly subscription, I would have immediately cancelled it --> NO INCOME FROM SUBSCRIPTIONS
    - Long (or even short) time users are totally shocked from the game as it is (no logos, no shirts, NO PLAYERS' FACES!! How am I supposed to
    build my lineup? Do I have to put on glasses just to read the small charachters of the player's name??? In the job section, if you don't
    enter in the particular job you don't even know the player designed to work!!!!!!!!!) --> PLAYERS WILL MASS-LEAVE

    That said I, a 5-year long player with more than 1.5 billions in cash, 5K coins, 500 contract days and almost every important HOF players l legends,
    will delete the game in a week time if I don't see an update that fixes, even partially, the aspect of the game and gives some long awaited new feature.
    And believe me when I say that it would be a sad day.

    Regards

    Hi @Riccardocazzate - We understand you and everyone is upset about this situation - we are too, but it's not as easy as you all think. We're still trying to reach a new agreement with the NBA and bring back the game the way it was before as soon as possible. Therefore, we kindly ask for your understanding in the meantime.

    I  wrote it yesterday here ( I canceled that message.  but I published the screenshots in the "bug and technical issues" thread) and  no reply was given because probably I don't deserve it.

    I want you to know that, since you replaced  my team logo with feathers but, on the contrary,  other managers keep the nba team official logos, I reported to the  NBA the persistent use of the license in spite of the recent events.

    Good morning,

    Once again and as I said before, it's all because of money.

    However, you have to consider that it is more profitable, if you can pay more for the license even if you have less benefits, or directly close the game and have 0 benefits.

    I already imagine that it is difficult to reach an agreement with the NBA, but it is that the current situation is unsustainable. I am a player with 5 years old and every time I have less desire to play, and I imagine that something similar happens to the rest.

    That said, value less benefits or benefits 0 by closing the game.

    Good luck with the negotiations.

    Greetings.

    After the new release, I thought I could play lotto with those numbers......thinking twice, the tabs of the roster make me think of those "gratta e vinci" (scratch and win), the instant lottery......

    Is this the idea of layout and "graphics" for the game? The present is a nightmarish confusion......

    In the light of the recent events,  I think that you were ready to lose the license many months ago: all the criticism that I addressed in the last year (the threads that I opened remain as "witness") about the lack of   features' maintenance or simple evolution didn't deserve a real confrontantion or answers.

    Well, I'm done.....

    Really frustrating to see that, even in light of the disastrous situation of the actual game, there are still differences in how you treat iOs and Android users....... this is a new low.

    I agree that FTB has known for months already that the NBA licence would expire and has, for obvious reasons ($$$$$$$), not said anything till the last moment. To support my opinion think about the fact, as Roberto stated, that no real new features have been released in the last year and that you cannot conjure up a new software version with extreme and radical visual changes in a day or two.

    You ask for our understanding but you can't deny these facts. The moment I delete this game for good is near.

    Do they know that either in the auctions section and in the buy now section the players are shown without any reference to “a city/team”? Is it a guess game?

    I don’t think so, because they already proved not to test even the basic features of the game....now that the NBA deprived them of the license these flaws will be the “normality”. 

    How can they ask for our patience when there is not any resemblance left with real NBA?

    They didn’t care before, imagine  now....I’m checking every now and then the apple store hoping that some  other company will step forward and get the License.

    Actually, I think that FTB is hoping that too, so that they can cash in some income reselling the game platform.....otherwise why try to keep the players in the game when is more than obvious that they lost the license once and for all?

    Hi @Roberto -- Keep in mind that all the changes were still updating when you wrote to us. If you still see any official branding in the game today, please let us know so we can get that removed as soon as possible. The new version should have everything removed completely.

    @Rafahm78 -- Unfortunately, obtaining a license is not as simple as the NBA telling us a price and us accepting. We are working to reach a new agreement as soon as possible.

    @Riccardocazzate -- We're working on this and adding more into the game to make it more attractive in upcoming versions.
    Anybody who has a contract with any company knows when a contract is going to expire, but nobody can be aware of new conditions that they're going to bring to the table. We understand you guys are upset about this situation, and we are also upset about this, but please understand that we're working to reach a new agreement with the NBA as soon as possible. In the meantime, we have to do what we're doing now in order to comply with their restrictions.

    You did not aswer my point though, I'll write it again in bold:

    there are still differences in how you treat iOs and Android users

    Why, even in disastrous times like now, FTB still considers "A-League" users (iOs) and "Z-League" users (Android)?

    And please don't tell me that it's because software coding is faster on iOs so that their version can come out faster..........................

    Hi @Riccardocazzate -- We do not treat iOS users better than Android users. We're still working to equal the versions as soon as possible. It is true that it's quicker to develop iOS versions since Android phones have much more variety of screen shapes and sizes, so we're not saying that as an excuse, but rather a fact.

    How much is confusing the current Player ID tab and layout in the game, without any reference but a number?

    Judge for yourself......

    Wait (who knows until when) to regain the NBA license.......meanwhile some clarity would be very "appreciated": I have suggestions to help, but considering the receptions of my precedent suggestions, I will keep them for me.
