I have to admit that I'm extremely disappointed right now, why ? For the last 5 months me and the GM team have been busting our asses working on this update, during this time our server's population decreased drastically because players simply stopped showing their support to the server. I thought this was because the server had become boring and outdated so I pushed through believing that this update would make the players happy and they would start contributing to our development once again. But apparently I was wrong.
Since the update was released (22 days ago) I have been dedicating at least 12 hours or more every day to fix the bugs that you all report and also to balance the things that need to be balanced. I know that the update made almost all of you happy because I can see the difference in the community's in-game activity, however the server still seems to be suffering from lack of players support.
So my question is, If the GM team is literally busting their asses to bring DreamerRO back to it's former glory then why can't the players do the same? You're all playing a completely FREE server which is more up to date than ANY other server out there and we have more unique features then most if not all other servers. The server is always up and it rarely suffers from lag. So why the lack of support?
To tell you the truth I feel like my hard work is not being appreciated and this discourages me from giving my best and other GMs like Palk and Eala are starting to feel the same way.
DreamerRO has been up for well over 3 years now...During this time we were:
- Ranked 1 on Ratemyserver for 2.5 years now we're rank 3 and falling down the ranks to servers with 1/10th our population.
- Ranked top 3 in ALL TopGamingSites now we are ranked 10-13th falling down to servers with 1/10th our population.
We have even added an annoying ass pop up to the patcher to see if it gets people to leave a review while they patch but this has also failed but players simply don't give a damn and they just want to start playing already.
I've seen many of you sitting in town for hours or browsing the forums posting in off-topinc, count to 1 million topics...Wasting your time when you could use that same time to help DreamerRO grow for literally the next 6 months.
If the GM team sacrifices half of their day to answer your questions, fix bugs, add new things and keep you entertained...Do you think it's fair that players can't spend 5 minutes and help the server they play for hours every day? Like really, 5 freaking minutes is too much to ask for?
I know this topic won't make a difference to many of you. You will simply read it and go back to playing or lurking the forums and keep whining about changes you'd like to see or errors getting fixed. I just hope this topic serves as a wake up call to some of you.
Seriously, I cannot believe servers with 30 people online are getting more reviews than us. I'm very disappointed and frustrated and I really need the players to show me that they really care about the server.
I strongly believe the server could reach 1,000 players online once again, I know the GM team is doing what they need to do to make this happen...All we need is the community's support to get there.
Thank you and I hope to see the difference soon.
