    The Unofficial RANT thread!!!!!!

    Post  sfinley ibrahim on Wed Mar 07, 2012 11:25 am

    Cause every forum needs one........ I figured I'd start it. Bitch, moan whine, and complain here. Misery loves company. I'll go first.



    Stupid freaking valentines quests! All that work and *poof* it's over and I got nada. 75 Tibetan honey and 15 heart frags. REALLY!!! And I couldn't even give the crap away cause I'm not a high enough level. Can't find the stuff to charge the collections from VD either! Decided I'm not even trying with these any more. Waste of time and diamonds to still get nothing. Evil or Very Mad Mad End rant.

    The Valentines Day collection items are from completing the Crystal Heart quest. It essentially gives you all the perfumes and deserts.

    What totally sucks is completing all the heart quests (coral, golden, etc) and not receiving anything.

    I have one complete collection and need one item each for two other collections. What I don't have are the arrow/ bow/ wings ect to charge the collections.

    Those are the ones where you can't ask a friend for them, right? I had the same problem and ended up spending diamonds on the Heart Signet collection. Do you think it was done that way intentionally or it's a bug that might be fixed? There aren't any other charge items that you can't request from a friend!

    Some may be gifted and others not. I think they did it intentionally. You have to use diamonds to either banish the cupids cause you can't find enough golden hearts or spend diamonds to charge collection. I think they are trying to force people to spend real money on a free game. If I had an extra $100 laying around to buy enough diamonds/coins to do all the quests I still wouldn't buy them. My family needs that money way more than I need to charge a collection.

    I totally agree. I haven't spent any money and I plan on keeping it that way. I do like the game (obviously), and would feel more inclined to support the developers if there were responsive and had better customer support. I also feel put off by the constant, blatant attempts at forcing people to pay in order to get anywhere. This Valentine's one in particular was almost offensive. ok /rant. Razz

    My rant

    Post  Admin on Sat Mar 10, 2012 10:07 pm

    My rant is this:

    The game is not the same for everyone. Some people, for some reason, have it easier than others. Unfortunately, I am not one of them.

    For example -
    Many players (I think newer ones, especially) are still receiving ALL of the Christmas bonuses. They are still getting their holiday cookies, and can still buy holiday items from the shop (they are cheaper and does more than standard items).

    Because of these advantages, these players can advance in levels quicker than those who do not have these advantages.

    I agree. Some people experience bugs that others do not. The 24 hour clock is different for everyone, it seems. Some people have managed to give me many gifts and collection items per day, whereas I can only send 1. The events end at different times for different people. I'm also wondering if all people have the same quests? All of these inconsistencies seem so strange to me!

    This has always been my problem with the game. As soon as you reach 160 in energy it takes more than 8 hours to regain it fully. That means that you can't leave it overnight and then be able to come the next morning and play. This is a pretty bad thing for GI really, because the "addiction" to the game wanes if you can't play every day. They should probably make it so that once you reach X amount of energy, then for every level you go up, the wait time goes down.

    Personally, I've been buying Hearty Dinners in order to raise my energy total and restore it fully. I know it's a ton of diamonds, but sometimes it's worth it to increase the energy and get it restored. I won't spend actual money for it however...

    I'm also looking forward to using my Crystal Heart to speed up the restore time. I feel like I'd be able to progress quite a bit with it. I'm waiting until after the next update, however, so some things will be fixed.

    Friend Lists

    Post  PegWalt on Fri Mar 16, 2012 5:12 pm

    Friends lists are so cumbersome to go through to find who you are looking for. Why can't they arrange them alphabetically or in descending Level order. they should also do it the same way in the Gifting Friends section. My friends are in a different order in there.

    On to another gripe...Why can't the "Choose a Gift" process be set up that when you select a gift to send, you can select multiple friends to send it to (if you desire) instead of sending one by one. It is so time-consuming!

    Here comes the weekend! And that means the game is virtually unplayable because "Dear player, internet connection is required for that operation...blah, blah, blah". I have the most time to play on the weekends, and unfortunately that is when I get that stupid message so often that I can barely play because I have to repeat every action 20 times just to get it to go through once. *sigh*

    I agree! Wouldn't it be great if Game Insight took out money and actually used it to upgrade their infrastructure (instead of making new games)?

    This update blows!!! I know it sucks for everyone but I started this rant thread so........... I'm going to rant!
    The bugs with this update are absolutely ridiculous! I can't access my collections after 65. I can barely visit friends. Took 6 hours to visit 25 friends. I have found MAYBE 3 things since the update. The only phenomenon in my manor for over a week has been the alien spaceship thingy. And now to top it all off, my gift counter hasn't reset. I hope they fix these issues within the next week. If not I am going to start giving away all of my stuff and then delete. I love mystery manor but this is supposed to be fun. With all the bugs it isn't fun anymore.

    I agree with you on all these points.

    The funny thing about phenomenons is that when you are low level and low in energy, they pop up all over the place. When you are higher level and NEED the phenomenons, they never appear. The stupid Corset quest has been on my screen for AGES. It's not a giftable/trade-able item either.

    Regarding items - I rarely go into rooms without a charm that increases drop rate. 1100 gold coins is a small price to pay to get some items. It isn't just you - it appears as if drops decrease as you advance in the game.

    We're all eagerly awaiting the update...

    Well my gift counter finally reset.........11 hours late. *sigh*
    I use my helpers that increase drop rate but right now can't afford charms. Trying to build up enough money to unlock Sakura room. I REFUSE to spend real money to advance in this game. I've seen posts on Facebook about people spending HUNDREDS of dollars buying coins and diamonds. My brain simply cannot compute that.

    Ahh... the good news is, after opening that room, you have no need for gold coins (there is another quest that asks for 10,000 coins later).

    When I notice my timers not being reset, I exit to iPad home screen and return - usually, that does the trick.

    Very Happy

    My drop rate since the update has been dismal. The only quests I've completed are those in which a friend gifted the necessary item to me. The vast majority of the quests I have now all require some type of phenomena in a particular room, and I've only had one pop up since the update...in the wrong room. But nothing dropped in that room when I searched it anyhow, so I don't suppose it would have mattered anyway. I also had the "rare charm" running all week that is supposed to increase the likelihood of finding items, and used other charms on top of it, in addition to tips and helpers, and still nothing. Seriously, I had a combined increased likelihood of 60% of finding an item, and I'm not even getting duplicates of items that I already have (like I used to). I prefer to find new items, but I still would rather get some duplicates for trading instead of a big 'ol nothing! I have one quest that is completed by "helping friends". I help friends regulary every day, and nothing. That quest has been up since the day of the update, so it might be coincidental, but I don't think so. I'm incredibly frustrated, because this game is the one game that I really enjoy playing daily, and all the fun has been sucked right out of it. I can keep searching rooms, but it seems pointless when I can't find any items, EVER, and I have to rely on friends to gift quest items to me.

    I've figured out about the same thing, only a little more work. The game rarely ever goes through all the loading screens when I open it. It usually just pops right up to the screen where I can see all my rooms,, and then if I visit a friend and return to my own manor, any new tips, etc. will show up. When my timer doesn't reset when it should, if I get the game to actually go through the loading screens, it will reset. But I usually have to power off my iPad to get it to do that. Nonetheless, it does the trick. I'd rather restart my iPad than wait for the timer to reset on its own.

    Yes - the game only receives an update every now and then. I wouldn't be surprised if the frequency was reduced to lessen the traffic load on the game servers.

    I understand everyone's frustration with the game.

    Personally, I don't really care much about it. I have learned to play in ways that is not stressful to me. I have found that I have a particular method:

    - I collect a lot of charms. Then I use them all together for a few days to increase my level, reputation, and get items.

    - Once I am out of charms, I spend a few days just doing trades. I trade my newly acquired spares with other players for items I need. During these 'trading days', I collect more charms.

    - Rinse and repeat!

    I'm currently at level 48, reputation 47. My end game is to have 1 of every item. Almost there. It'll take another 2 weeks would be my guess. By then, perhaps there is more new content, and an update that fixes all the current bugs.

    Is there a reason why you're trying to collect 1 of every item? (I'm assuming you mean after you've charged the collections...). I see a lot of people who have complete collections who don't charge them and I don't understand why. These people usually have more thn enough charge items, so it wouldn't be to save on those. Maybe some people are keeping all their items without charging in case theres a future quest asking for multiples? I always find it harder to trade with those people too because I don't feel like there's anything I can offer them. Just curious what you're opinion on it is Smile

    I cannot play this game forever.

    I have to set an endgame for myself. My endgame cannot be 'be higher than everyone else in level' because that is impossible. The next sensible endgame goal would be to solve all the quests and get all the items.

    I plan on getting 2 of every collection item (including charging them) and 2 of every artifacts. I love to trade. People will always trade, even it they seemingly have everything.
