  1. There is no reason to get snippy. I'm sorry that it's somehow confusing to you but I read what you were saying just fine. This isn't what I wanted the end of my gaming time to be like here. And yet it's foolish to think any *online game* is going to still be there to play in the future. These games end. It's about value for the time being played. Going back and playing an emulated version of the game has nothing to do with anything, it is neither here nor there. Let me try to say a do-over to what I was saying and see if that helps. Before I talk about my original reply, what I was saying was this: The vast majority of us also only have time to play games one time, so that time is temporary, no matter if the games still exist or not. For *most of us* the games are a brief thing we enjoy and then move on to something else. We're getting value for our time. Yet that reply wasn't to you or about anything you said. You made a reply as if I was speaking to you. My original reply was to Trash Panda,. It was in direct reply to a statement he was making. I wasn't replying to you. I wasn't saying "all games end get used to it." to you. I was replying to the statement that Trash Panda made that said people are stupid to spend money on games that end. It had nothing to do with anything you were saying. And that's still what I'm talking about, value for money in games that end, people not being stupid for spending money on online games that go away. You act as if I was speaking to you for some reason. To clarify what I was saying to *him* - I wasn't saying they shouldn't be doing refunds. Refunds for money spent recenty or over certain amounts definitely is something most companies should do (the majority of "AAA" companies that have closed games have never given me refunds no matter how short of a time the game was up and it would have been nice if they did). I'm just saying that there is value in time played. I'm saying that people like Trash Panda who jump in and say "hahahahahha you dumb blippty blop you spent money on a game that's closing hahahahahaha" don't have that valid of a point because there is value in game play time. This game was always going to close eventually. Yes, we all would have wanted it to stay up as long as possible, but nearly every online game is going to go down eventually so it's about time value for the money and what that entertainment is worth to someone. Definitely there are recent charges and high charges that should be refunded, but even if they weren't there is still value for time played in games and I enjoyed my time playing here. Trash Panda doesn't have a point either way because there are refunds happening here, and I didn't mean to sound like I thought that shouldn't happen, but I just mean all games are temporary for the most part and so we get value out of spending money in them even if they aren't around anymore. What that value is, how much it is worth to you, that is up to each person and can and will be different for each individual. They are right to be doing refunds here, but there is also a value in the time played even if a game closes. It's about having fun in the moment, sometimes remembering that fun into the future, but it's about that current enjoyment. It's not about it being there forever. Although yes, I would have liked if this game was here forever. There are limits and amounts that all come into play but it's not a blanket statement that someone is dumb for spending money in a game that is closing. If I had only spent up to say $20 here, I wouldn't care if it was being returned or not. I had fun while it lasted so I would have got value out of that amount of money anyway, for instance.
  2. Our game play time with them is temporary. How many games that you play and finish do you go back and play again? We still own the game, but it's very rare to play through them again when we're done with them. We keep our saves as if it makes a difference and to have our work, but our play time is a temporary thing. Are you saying you agree with Trash Panda? It's fine if you do, but I don't think what he is saying has much merit personally. Games are temporary, games as a service especially, they always close, but our game time with every game pretty much ends. We pack them up and move on. The majority of us don't keep our old consoles and games forever. It's about having fun while playing them. So Trash Panda laughing about people spending money on the game is ridiculous because we enjoyed it while playing. It's about the amount of gameplay time and fun we had while playing it. Sure, in an online game that closes too early that we spent too much money on that can be cut short, but for this game that our money is being refunded it doesn't come into play. And yet if it did, all games are really us temporarily playing them. We pay $60 for 20 hours of play quite often, then the game is shelved and doesn't get taken back out again, even if the option to do so is there.
  3. Yeah I had a lot of fun playing the game, I didn't waste anything. All games are temporary and only there to have fun while playing them. Just because I finish playing doesn't mean I've lost anything, I still had fun during the time I played. What game do we play forever? It's about the fun we have while taking part in them. And we normally don't get our money back at the end of our time playing like is happening here!
  4. Trash Panda is just our own little griefer and fail troll here at the forums. At least he admits he is trash I guess. Someone needs to give this little boy a spanking. I bought all the packs as well, because I work and have money to spend. That's hard for someone who doesn't do so to understand. They want their Mama to buy all their stuff for them, so assume that's what is happening when other people purchase stuff in games as well. There are ways to say things that get respected and listened to without making a complete weiner of yourself, but there are those that do not know how to do that. Spoiled children with no respect for others get to get away with this kind of stuff online, but won't last very long in the real world acting like this once they get out from under Mommy's skirt. Possibly he is a coward that only acts like this online and pretends to be a normal person in real life, frightened and trembling in fear to show who they really are unless they're anonymous. If this message needs to be deleted, so be it, but he's railing on people and being a jerk, so I should be allowed to respond to him as long as his posts get to stay.
  5. Since they returned the money they got from us, Steam took most of *our* money, not theirs. But hey I'm glad that you're so thrilled about it. PS: Fail troll is fail.
  6. Hmm okay mine are both still there. All I can suggest is to use the Zendesk link since they are premium items. You'll have to go post there in order for them to look at your account and see what happened and fix it. Though as a warning, it's not a fast process as of right now... So go back out into this bug reporting forum, in the message that says "Customer Support for Steam Wallet Purchases" and follow the Zendesk link there. Once there file a ticket with as much detail as possible about what happened.
  7. Uh oh, I just activated mine an hour before the server went down. I'll come back after I play a bit later with an update after seeing if mine is still there.
  8. While I couldn't be a Brother in gender, I could be one in spirit Though the misidentifying doesn't bother me or anything, I purposely use gender neutral names most of the time. I would have left you the direct link to the support site in my reply but that would then hide my message until someone came along and approved it. I wanted to get the reply to you quick so you could go file your report there in case you hadn't already. I hope you get helped soon too! If I was them I'd be on top of the pack support pretty quick. Where money spending is concerned you want people to be confident about it and all. We'll see I guess. I'm not going to worry right now over the weekend and I know they have a small team.
  9. I didn't get anything from my Starter Pack at all. I went to claim one item from it and the game hung, then disconnected, and when I got back it wasn't there to claim anymore and I didn't have the items. Since Steam has me marked as owning it, I can't even re-buy it to get the deal again For stuff like this, we're supposed to use the support link in the Bug post titled "Customer Support for Steam Wallet Purchases". It's here in the bug forum stickied up at the top, you should go into that post and use the link there if you haven't already. We need to use that link if we have had issues with Steam Supporter Pack stuff or basically any Steam purchase. I did file there and am waiting patiently (or not so patiently) for them to get to me. I'm fairly confident that they will sometime along soon
  10. I did go into the game to test something about house name creation, so I entered the game now, and it's basically something I can live with. If the other person is going to be an active player that's great and they simply beat me to it at the reset, though there also may be options there. And yeah it was sort of weird for it to go that fast About the possibility of those options, I'll send that DM to you about it
  11. Only if you happened to have logged onto the forum to see the note within that one day... I'm signed up for email info, it would have been a great opportunity for a warning email that this was coming! And yeah, I didn't happen to check the forum that day. I was just venting wishing we could have carried over our names we were using, it's my account name and everything. I in no way was blaming the person who picked the name, as again they were just following the rules as they were set out. New people doing new accounts seem to automatically get their account name set as their House name. It would have been nice if it had been permanently linked to our accounts or something. I realize that it's past the time where something could have been done about it, I guess besides the venting of it it's more of a "it would be great to do this differently in the future" type of thing as well.
  12. After being Mewmew here on the website, through the earliest of tests, through alpha and beta, after all that during the transition someone snagged it before I could get it as the game was going into EA. I am thinking of trying "UtterlyBummed" as a house name from here on out. I'm curious why testers didn't get a chance to transfer names or have more of an early warning the EA launch was coming. This seems like it would have been the perfect time to send out email notices to let us know it was coming. I got a notice in email from Steam that it launched and immediately went there, but too late. While I can't blame the person who took the house name I've had all this time for taking it as they were just following the rules, I'm really bummed that this is the way it was decided by the devs to move forward, in a way that made it easy for them to take it. There seems to have been a notice in a post yesterday that it was coming right before it did, but this was big news and a huge shift. It would have been nice to have more of a heads up or a chance to somehow keep our names. Yes, I'm probably being a baby, but after having the name so long and losing out because of what I feel were bad decisions on how to do it moving into the EA launch, it's entirely possible I may just not play. I haven't really decided yet. I will probably get over it and just pick another name, but being so let down at the moment it won't be right off. So anyway if you knew me from the game from any point in time or from around here, the Mewmew in game now won't be me anymore.
  13. Yes, this is an issue. The thing of it is that they jump in and rush the dungeon so that we end up missing out on the end rewards. If we could still go along to the end of the dungeon and pick up the boss rewards it wouldn't matter so much that they rushed it, but we can't. The community was good about this when the community was small. Most people who joined another's dungeon would wait for the one who created it and wouldn't just rush it. As more people have joined, that courtesy gets skipped quite often. I'd like to say some people are doing it purposely in order to try to expose the flaw and get the system changed (some probably really are), but a few more are just being jerks already and there will be far more of those in the future. I can't say what the best way to deal with the issue would be, but it definitely is an issue... As a side note, I also have got that bug in that same dungeon you were recording where you get hard mode enemies when not in hard mode. It's pretty rough when it happens
  14. Okay I thought it was showing them all since the names show up in the ignore thing even if they haven't posted. Obviously there is something I don't know about the database that's causing some names not to show there. Possibly there was some duplication error back early on when the forums were first coming up, it could be there was an import back from somewhere before using this forum, maybe it's even that they have to actually go into the forum to be there or something even if they don't post (the most likely of the scenarios). With darkon's registration being so early on I would have been worried for him if he wasn't able to reclaim the name but it looks as if he was.
  15. I don't see any other Darkon's either. When we go to Ignore someone, we get a user list when entering a partial (or their full) name. There are no other darkon's listed. Plus you have a pretty old account with a low user number (1360) meaning you signed up pretty early without many people here yet, and you have a name that isn't very common. If I had to guess I'd guess it was in error as well.
