    Hi,

    We need immediate answers on this

    Some device has got arenas locked and they are able to play only in their current arenas

    Other devices don't have this problem .. yet !

    My real concern is how did this happen suddenly without an "update" .. It started Today although we've updated to version 1.71 earlier this week when it became available !

    Ok .. Here is the issue .. due to push update within the game app, some devices show 2 stars in the ID popup page and some shows only 1 star

    The devices with 2 stars have the problem .. the devices with 1 star don't have it

    Now, we need an explanation and an immediate fix

    P.S. I wish you add the possibilty of posting screenshots to show the problem

    This is so unacceptable.. you realease any update without letting us know if we want it. We will eventually get tired and dump the app. Let’s see how you guys fair . Allow us enjoy the game the way it is. I knew how i struggled to attain my level and also build my players
    It makes the game fun . Not forcing us to do your biddings .

    Exactly .. the main issue is updating within the app and without letting us know !!!

    That itself is a violation of our rights to know what the new update carries with it

    I will continue playing if we would just get an explanation about the change. I like playing the game, but how does this change benefit the majority of your audience?

    It's like playing a game that allows you to replay missions and maps, and then suddenly that gets taken away. It completely changes everything.

    It must not be intended. For example, I bought many packages from the store before related to Bux & Gems, so what will be FTG decision in returning back our money since no use for money now for me. Additional to that, if people don't have bux, how will they upgrade their players, FTG will force them to buy packages to get bux for that upgrade (L9 to Max is 100,000 Bux). Not everyone have the ability to buy stuff from the store. 

    Also, giving your captain to friends to assist you with Bux in higher arena will disappear, so many good relation which was built because of the game will disappear.

    FTG need to review this decision.

    Hi Mustafa Helmy,

    As you have seen lately from FTG's feedback on tickets, this in-app update is "intended" and a test, which we all simply cannot accept

    I didn't get the update but I, like many others, don't agree on the fact that they are forcing the updates in our app without our consent

    The idea is not welcomed !!

    FTG - Hello .. Anybody there? I suggest that you start checking your own forum and give some "clear" answers on this. We are tired of the same "intended and test" answers !

    I have the same case with you! Two accounts but one has trouble and the other not!
    Database! I don't think so...
    I think it was a test.
    May be they want to force those whom get max players and playing smaller arenas to move up.
    Maybe.. We're waiting for answers FTG team!!!!!!

    I don't have max players though. That would make sense if it's for max players. Even if that's the case, why would they care? You're still playing against your current arena. It's not like you're playing someone who is still in Arena 1 when you're in Arena 5.

    Additionally, I've had level 2 Guards outrun my level 5-6 infiltrators and win the ball easy, so that doesn't even matter anyways.

    The game is not playable/fun anymore. You need bux and gems to continue and upgrade. If you can only get 1000 bux for winning (arena 8), you eventually will run out of bux.

    It was always recommended to wait long enough to upgrade. Playing with level 6 players in arena 8 is suicide.

    If it's a test, what is it they want to test? See how quick people leave the game? See how much sales for gems/bucks will decrease? How can anybody spend money on a game you cannot thrust and stops you from playing with no reason at all?

    I've also noticed something weird. I play a lot less but I win all my games in the new Arena 8 since the change. Sometimes even rediculously. I didn't score in a game and the last kick was from very far, the keeper just didn't even really tried to catch the ball so I won in the last second....and I'm not playing Tottenham :)  I know this can happen, but it's rare, but this time I knew it was going in because the game wants me to win. I also am playing against players with much better stats (many gold medals, high percentage, many games,...) and I do't even have a golden medal.

    It's like the game is pushing you to a higher Arena and let's you win to get you there.

    It's not about maxed players, not even in the same arena, because I play in Arena 8 and  I have 6 players under level 8.

    I never understood the loosing streaks, yes you could argue that a team get's tired after too many games but what is wrong with just playing man to man and let the best player beat the other player just because he plays better and not because the game wants something different. It's like a game where the ref is against you, nobody likes loosing this way.

    The best FTG can do is give the players an explanation and reset this "test" as soon as possible otherwise people will leave the game and spend their money elsewhere.

    I'm having a hard time winning the match because I always meet opponents bigger than my level, it's quite difficult to also get a goal pack, I don't know what the event will be if the small level player wins

    I don’t mind this tryout system in the game. My only concern is that we don’t know how long is it gonna last, is it permanent or temporary? What’s the point in this new system of locked arenas other than your current level arena?
    What’s the point of “bux” if the games are free?
    FTGames should at least inform us if and when this system is gonna end, so we don’t find ourselves stuck in a high level arena, costing us $$$$$$$ to downgrade level?
    Now, with this uncertainty about it, I have to lose games on purpose so I don’t get too many stars because it would cost me too much money to lose them if and when the game switches back to the old system of paying a lot of bux to enter a game you mean to lose in order to downgrade to a lower level arena.

    Exactly. I've lost 10 or 15 games in a row deliberately in order to win another games for the goal package and not to earn too much stars in the rank... and it's not gonna change in the next days if the game isn't rebuilt. I've also downgraded deliberately from 2000+ to 2000- and there was no change, still silly games for free and arena lockout.

    Havibg a little respect for the players ftg should announce is it bug or is it intended and if this is bug, whether they have database previous to the bug or not. But the lasting silence ids the proof that it could be intended.

    Dear Developers!

    This new test (lower arena locking) is really annoying!
    Please restore my game, I have spent real money on gems and bux, and now my bux is completely useless.

    I played daily a lot with this game, but if this update stays, I leave.

    Regards

    Gabor

    I like this new system, for a change, for we can try out higher level arenas without fear of losing all our bux (money). On the other hand, if you decide to switch back to the old rules, and I'm stuck 500 stars above my weight, it would cost me a million bux to dial it back to level apropriate arena.

    I've read somewhere that you said that noone will be left "worse off" than before this trial, after it's over, but that depends on what you consider to be "worse off" or "better off". Maybe you think that me being in two Arenas higher than I was before means that I'm "better off" but not necessarily, because maybe I wanted to tryout Arena 8-9 playing for free, but I wouldn't (or couldn't) pay 100000 bux or more for one game, when my team still isn't good enough to compete there regularily for that kind of moneys.

    So, I support and like your idea, but consider warning us at least one day in advance before switching back to the old rules.

    Thanks, and great game!!

    I understand that FTG wants to change the game but changes need to be improvements and communicated clearly. Why not ask the players opinion in advance about such important changes?

    The change is unfair in many ways:

    • First of all not all players are treated the same way, some have the new "test" others can play on.
    • Players in the test can not earn the same amount of bux and this is needed to upgrade players.
    • Testplayers arrive now in higher arena's without much problems and this in unfair to those who invested time and money to get there. Games are easy to win, even against far better players, I feel like a "punisher" and this is unfair for other players. Some players are losing deliberately, this is not what the game is about.
    • Nobody knows if this test will be definitive or not and what the consequences are after the test. Investing money and time in the game seems to have no use.
    • It's even more unfair to players who invested in this game with real money. If bux do not have any value anymore, why did they pay for it? Will the bux be converted to gems?

    I can understand that the system of bux would be cancelled but than it would only be fair that already earned bux would be converted to gems. Players converted gems to bux so they lose their money with nothing in return. If bux are converted (5000 -> 1 gem) this would be an compensation for the loss. With only gems the game would be simpler.

    I hope FTG take the players concerns serious and make the necessary changes soon so the game can again be fun and fair for everyone.

    I have spent a lot of money and hours playing this game....the most annoying this is the abrupt system changes without warning which appears to also change the algorithm of the players making them respond in different ways which means the hours and hours of developing game play is lost. 

    But I am not happy with your recent "without warning" change...limiting play to one arena as I enjoyed trying out different systems  without losing lots of bux. Now the fun is taken away..every match is a pressure match...we have less freedom and a sense of being manipulated like puppets on a string.

    @Peter

     

    I found fun in the newest side of this game - now I'm heading deliberately straight to Arena 1 and will go directly to Arena 10 - and repeatedly. I always wanted to downgrade in order to play lower leagues and now I have ideal opportunity to do this.

    I would be pissed if I paid to those amateurs through the game(luckily I've spent no this game entirely 3 or 4 euros), I would feel extremely cheated - especially when some players are still playing normally (earning normal bux) and some can't. This is unbelievable that you potentially pay large amounts to develop your account and finally you find out that it means nothing. I think about it over and over again and I can't find any reason why the change was made (assuming that it was intended) and, moreover, why whey keep silent. Maybe some pissed gamer took into their headquaters and killed everyone inside?
