Petition to Stop "Warfare Packages" from coming into the game


Edit: Update, InnoGames recently released an announcement about Warfare Packages, and other Premium features of the game! Check it out, and lets make sure this never gets released: http://forum.en.grepolis.com/showthread.php?55793-Official-Statement-%E2%80%9CWarfare-Packages%E2%80%9D-and-General-Concerns-About-Grepolis&p=952187#post952187


[HR][/HR]

A couple of days ago, a new feature was implemented on the beta server: it is now possible to buy warfare packages in exchange for money. Not for gold (which you've possibly already bought), but for real money (so you will have to purchase by issuing money instead of buying with money you already spent (on gold)). This was announced on the Dutch server by a regular player, who opened a topic discussing the subject, not through our CM, a team member or a notification by InnoGames. The following images showing the new features are taken from that topic:





In exchange for a certain amount of money you get a package of troop reinforcements and, depending on the amount of money spent, population expansion or triple battle points. Pay particular attention to the package that costs €80, it contains 5x extra BP with a triple effect that lasts 12 hours (depending on world speed, presumably). These are idiotic benefits that will render Grepolis (Gold Polis) even more pay to win. The enjoyment regular players (who use little to no gold) get out of the game is threatened by the implementation of this feature.

Recently, instant buy and gold trade were added to Grepolis, which many players (including ourselves) considered enough of a reason to quit this once enjoyable game. Those features were added, even though InnoGames has known for a long time that these functions are extremely unpopular, and now this. As a community, we have to draw the line at some point, and for us, that point has now been reached. Under no circumstances will we allow the game we once loved so much to be screwed up even further by the money-grubbers at InnoGames.
We notice, and we conclude that:

- Grepolis is being ruined by the many additions to premium / 'money' advantages. In addition to an overflow of events, IB and gold trading, players are now given the opportunity to buy troops and other bonuses directly with money. This feature is currently only implemented on the beta server, but InnoGames is undoubtedly considering implementing it everywhere (Read: they will simply make it happen, just like what happened with IB and gold trading: a decision that was opposed by a large majority of players).

- The InnoGames team has been focusing on the wrong things. The Roadmap 2014 already included the development of a new end game (something that players would really like to see), but this has not been implemented yet. The game still contains bugs that they can easily deal with, but time after time things go wrong (including updates). New additions / other changes are usually not welcomed by the community, we would prefer for them to adjust things that we're happy with. InnoGames needs to represent our views.
We request that:

- The "Warfare Packages" will not be available on the EN (International) servers, unless the following conditions are met:

1. There is a new endgame that a clear majority of players is satisfied with, the widespread screwing around with failing updates and changes stops.
2. A clear majority of the players is in favor of these packages. If the majority does not want them, they should not be added.​

- The EN CM along with his modteam makes a strong statement against InnoGames. Worst case scenario, they would have to go on a strike, that would be a means by which we certainly could achieve something. If our CM does not oppose this change vocally, this is only his own fault. After some checking, it is clear that the modteam is against the implementation of warfare packages, quite clearly in some cases. If he does not stand behind his community in this matter, it should be obvious that we lose confidence in him.

We want to ask everyone:

To post in this topic and make it clear that you are in agreement, support the petition, and don't want the warfare packages to be added to the game. It would be greatly appreciated if a link to this topic would be spread ingame.

Note: Thanks to Dutch servers for giving me the format to make this, we hope that together we can stop this from ever happening in any server.

Players to recognize: These people spread the word, and helped get this awesome activity and signings!
Valkeneth - Put news up in The Oracle of Zancle.
Quackmaster - Put blog post on his website for the script.
Everyone that signed!

We already have a ton of support, but we need close to every active forum poster signing, then grepolis will see that every person hates this, and this will succeed where other failed!

It would be horrible to have those packages. We are better off without them.

I will also let my alliance know of this thread.

I am against this! This is not good for those that need to spend there hard earned money on taking care of family first! It would give others an unfair advantage and is very bad form!

I'm also against this, though this topic looks like an exact copy of the petition on the Dutch forums :eek:

Heya guys,

I'm the original poster of the Dutch topic.

First of all I would like to thank you all for giving this the attention that is needed. We really need to stop Inno right here, they're ruining the game with their money-grabbing, so I really request you all to give this as much attention (also ingame!) as possible. Furthermore I hope that the English modteam (especially the CM) is going to speak up against InnoGames, that they will give their opinions. A statement as in a strike would be in place.

I've seen some struggles with the translation of my post, I will offer the OP here a slightly better one.

Good luck all, and thanks for spreading this,
Rutger
