More upcoming halloween stuff and voting site changes.

I hope you're all enjoying the Halloween hunts and candy! Tomorrow I will be hiding more candy around the site, so keep your eyes peeled. The green pumpkin hunt is going well with lots of people taking part which is good, the green pumpkin hunt on October 31st will give 5 plasma per find. As well as that there will be even more candy given away for players logging in and playing on October 31st.

I am in the process of going through and removing some of the poor quality voting sites. A couple of voting site owners have got on my bad side so we wont be supporting them. But not to worry, extra turns will be added elsewhere and more better quality sites added. Vote sites that are overloaded with ads will benifit them more than us, the idea of us voting is to get more players for RoB isn't it? If they are OVERLOADED with ads very few people will see the actual sites voting because of being overwhelmed by ads. I am going through my analytics reports and finding out the quality voting sites. More turns will be added to the active ones as i take some away. So don't worry, you won't be losing out =D

Oh, and i've already thought up Novembers competition.

Everything has been superb Ash! Thanks so much for making this time of year one which is in theme, full of challenge and just outright fun! :D Keep up the good work and thanks for giving us voting sites that benefit RoB ... rather than stinky advertisements! Muaaahhh.

Just a suggestion Ash...any chance of you setting the start times to these kinda events a little more Euro friendly? Generally I wake up and its all over and me needs my beauty sleep :d

DarkAsh said...

I stay up till midnight to actually add them :P

Dosiseous said...

No matter what time you set them to someone is going to have an issue with the time. I do not envy the choice you have to make ash, but great job on all the contests and updates.

Still wondering about your specific reasoning for not including VIP packs in your holiday deals. Please stop ignoring that question.

chaticdude said...

this is going to be AWSOME!!!

Guildythewicked said...

I was kinda wondering about the VIP thing too Ash.I do not purchase plasma packs, I do however purchase VIP. Why so WE not get special pumpkins? :(

People will complain no matter what you do. But thanks for everything Ash. Always coming up with new things...

Guildythewicked said...

And people will anonymously make cracks about others no matter what anyone says.

This is the original poster of the vip question. Yes, Ash has done some great things. There is no question of that. I have publicly acknowledged him on several occasions for doing so. However, that does not mean that there aren't things that I have issues with, and hard work and all notwithstanding, that does not mean I should just accept it without complaint. There are a lot of people who do not want to buy plasma.. they are nonetheless loyal and regular supporters of the game through their purchase of vip. To deny us something as small as a pumpkin because we don't shell out the big bucks for plasma certainly isn't very much in the holiday spirit. Plasma btw that as far as I'm concerned provides very little value to me as a player of this game.

(cont'd) Frankly, I think that anyone who makes *any* purchase whatsoever during the holiday special time should at least get the little icon by their name. It's not like I'm asking for any kind of special pricing or anything. Most concerning to me about this whole thing though is Ash's stubborn silence about this. If you don't want to offer a little icons to your loyal vip purchasers then say so. Better yet give me a reason. Because the only reason I can see for it, is financial. Do you really want to just squeeze money from your players for something they feel is utterly useless just to get a holiday themed icon by their name? If so, I can see why you wouldn't want to tell that to your customers... but we still have a right to know that you would deny something so trivial to your players for something so petty as greed.

DarkAsh said...

It's nothing to do with greed. It's just the holiday packs give the holiday stuff, it's how it has always been...

Anonymous said...

Glad you answered that part... so now the question still remains why isn't vip included in those packs?

Jesus, where do you think Ash gets the money to keep RoB up and running? From us, the people that play it, and as far I, and many other people are concerned he can do whatever he feels is needed. If that means you don't get a little icon next to your name, buck up and stop crying, he could shut the whole site down, and never even have to give us a reason.

Legion the Hermit said...

Petty petty petty. Mr Anonymous 2 post essay? What is wrong with you? Whatever is given is a bonus, not a *right*... Are you nuts? Sheesh. As for the icons, personally I'd prefer not to have them. It marks out the Plasma Junkies. Ooops... Not politically correct there LOL. :-) You people make me laugh. :-)

Anonymous said...

That's right.. he gets the money from those of us that play the game. That includes the vip buyers as well as the plasma buyers. Obviously the plasma buyers get preference though. I'm sure he appreciates the vip buyers too... just not quite so much as the plasma buyers. I never said it was my right.. Ash can do whatever he wants. It doesn't make anything I said any less true.

Forgotten said...

ASH YOUR A MACHINE!!!! lol GREAT WORK

DarkAsh said...

Plasma buyers get no preference.

Anonymous said...

Of course they do. There is no deal available to VIP buyers.

jenn.mcgrogan said...

Thank you Ash for EVERYTHING! I love this game, and I love the specials you run and the extra's you give us. I have played other games b4 I came here, and they did not offer nearly as much as you have for us. Thank you.
As for the above,there are deals for VIP, but since the plasma is more valuable to the game and costs a LITTLE more, it is understandable to run plasma specials, instead of VIP specials...VIP is already resonable in price,and considering you can play the game for free most of us can understand why there are plasma specials and VIP already is on special year round!! Funny though how you stay anonymous?!
Thanks For Everything Ash<3

If all my posts have been read, you'll see that I never asked for special pricing for VIP but whatever. Ash has answered every question except for the one that I specifically asked to be answered. It's pretty obvious his position on it. And I'll continue to stay anonymous. Funny how people have a problem with that. I don't want undue scrutiny or repercussions for speaking my mind. While I actually feel that Ash has some integrity in that area.. I know for a fact that some of his staff does not. So I won't put myself in that spot.

Ahem, to make a quick change of subject and a quick suggestion about the voting page...

I was wondering if the voting sites could be split into two lists? One list being those sites requiring captchas, and the other list the sites that do not.

Just a thought...

Semera Bloodlust said...

Great work, as always, Ash! It is genuinely appreciated!

jenn. Before plasma packs there was ONLY VIP. And during holidays VIP got special pricing and special additions.

Don't get me wrong Ash I appreciate all the fun things you have given all players for Halloween. All I'm saying is that those of us who prefer to not buy plasma packs, shouldn't not get a tiny little perk. I and others have been supporting this game since day one with VIP. We should get the little pumpkin, ( which is all anonymous 1 is asking for).

Anonymous 1. Any staff that gives you crap for posting on the blog,or anything else, should be reported to Ash.

Anonymous said...

Thank you Guildy. That is exactly all I have been saying. A little holiday icon next to the name of ~anyone~ who supports the game monetarily shouldn't be all that much to ask. I love this game. I wouldn't be here if I didn't. Ash has done a wonderful job and I do appreciate the work he puts into it. And just for the record, if I have been harsh in some of my assessments, I apologize. However, I do feel strongly that leaving a large and loyal segment of one's customer base out of a little holiday goody like that is at the very best, not very in line with the spirit in which something like that should be intended.
