I've been away from the EE community for a long time, and of course nothing has changed. I don't think the word "community" applies here anymore. A community is a positive term, but all of this is nothing but a toxic bubble. No-one seems to understand this is nothing like real life, while, sadly, it does deal with real people with real feelings.None of this is normal. The fact that a lot of you still use the nomenclature of "staff" and especially, "owner", just shows how much of a bubble this is. None of this is how an actual business is run.


Why are you all still here? These "discussions" aren't normal. In the real world you talk to someone in person, and settle matters privately. You both try to work things out and strive to get the best out of each other. All of this is just public mud-throwing under the guise of "transparency".

He wasn't keeping me informed, so I wasn't keeping him informed. He claims I was purposefully keeping things from "all staff", which is entirely untrue. I was purposely keeping things from him, and he knows it was personal, and it was specifically him I was keeping things from, and that's where he had an issue. ~ Xenonetix ~

This isn't normal. A real business doesn't withhold information from their colleagues because of some petty personal bs.


So, again, why are you all still here? Even the phase where people stay because a train wreck can be enjoyable to watch has been stretched to the point of near-singularity. Everyone knows this toxicity is beyond the point of repair.

It's time to pull the plug.

maby poelpe can vote afterwardas for the new true dificulty

Nice suggestion but actually useless. Imagine new players play campaigns, medium campaigns are too hard for them, so they vote for hard. But when pro players play medium campaigns, they think that it’s too easy, so they vote for basic.

Again, if new players play extreme campaigns, it’s too hard, so of course they will vote for extreme. Normal skilled/non-skilled players would vote for hard/hard-extreme, pro players will vote for easy. It’s just not fair.

EE have many kinds of players, not every player’s skills are the same, so voting is useless.

But that's exactly how the rating system works. It gauges the level of the playerbase which can help the staff determine what difficulty to focus campaigns on. So what if a bunch of newbies rate a level a certain way. I'm interested in what players think of various campaigns difficulty-wise.

Then my question to you would be, what do you suppose a newbie would rate the Hard campaigns? They would most likely put it in the category of Extreme. But then how would they rate the current Extreme campaigns?

Right. But I mean, it cannot be so that the hard levels are given medium and the the medium levels easy. Master1 and other campaign team members are actually so good in campaigns that they don't recognise any difference between a medium and an hard level.

Gee, it's almost as if it's based on a rough estimation/opinion with which you don't always seem to agree. In other words, had you been making campaigns, people would be whining about it just like you are, but then you'd be on the receiving end. Are you saying your opinion on difficulty is superior?

Exactly this way different levels have been played by different people with different opinions. So that the levels from when you added campaigns had another difficulty setting than these of today’s.

But not everyone's opinion is based on the same skill. The initial basic idea behind the difficulties (which I set up back in the days when we released campaigns) was to divide levels into 7 categories, starting with what was then arguably the hardest level, working down to the easiest levels, sub-dividing along the way.

Now, if you can actually beat the hardest levels, aka the entire Fractured Fingers campaign, having the hardest level of the hardest campaign means that's extreme, because it's an extreme challenge for the best players. This, ignoring the fact that some people have become even more amazingly skilled at this game that they can still breeze through that campaign.
Then, with the easiest levels, someone new to the game can beat the Basic campaigns with little effort. This was the foundation for the framework of the difficulties: Extreme would be what the most highly-skilled subset of players would find extreme, Basic would be no problem to beat for the most lowly-skilled subset of players.

If you take the middle section, let's say a Hard campaign, having a new or low-skilled player attempt a Hard level, let's say EX Crew Odyssey, for them that's an extreme challenge, so according to them that level should be in the Extreme category. Where does that leave the actual current Extreme campaigns? Uber Power Master Omfg Extreme? Nope, still extreme, because the framework was set up that way.
So, having people with vastly different skill levels vote won't work, because it's not based on a similar experience. That's why, especially in the beginning, highly-skilled players needed to form their opinions on campaign level difficulties, because then Extreme was actually Extreme. With the foundation having been lain, it is now much easier for lesser-skilled players to estimate whereabouts the difficulty really lies, because they can compare it to the current framework. So what might be an extreme challenge for one player might be just medium for someone else.

Master1 and Kirby are (I believe, I'm not around much) currently doing campaigns, and they are both highly-skilled players, so their reach is higher and therefore their estimation of difficulty is based on much more experience than for others. They might be getting biased about difficulty because they could be at the point where Extreme isn't an extreme challenge to them anymore, but that's something else.

That said, Anatoly and other players I've heard complain about this before, as far as I'm aware you're not nearly in the range of being able to beat the Extreme campaigns and therefore your experience is relatively lacking to form good judgement regarding campaign level difficulty. As far as I've seen, I think M1, Kirby, and Rava have been doing excellent work with the difficulty, with a few disagreements from my side as well, but hey, that's also just my opinion.

Not Enough Skeletons was built in ~8 hours time, without breaks, indeed while streaming. Obviously that doesn't produce the best results, especially the lack of testing while it has some puzzle elements

There's gotta be better levels out there.

The problem is that there is a very limited amount of good extreme levels, let alone find enough with an overarching theme

What are you referring to?

Zoey got into a discussion with a user not voting in politics. When he was trying to defend his position for not voting, Zoey flamed him at least three total times. She then had the chat vote on whether or not the user would be banned to make a point that votes matter, but it backfired on her and she banned herself after the chat voted to do so. She was demoted from being a moderator after that.

I heard she also cut in line at Walmart in 2006, which is totally relevant

JFC do you people have nothing better to do than spending hours on this witch hunt? It's been going on for 6 pages. Ironically it's the same people that complain about EE having a toxic community. Congrats guys, you're part of the problem!

#17 Re: Questions and Answers » Magic coins » 2018-03-15 11:58:44

The magic coin algorithm has become much more strict over the years. The first few weeks it was implemented people afk farmed the poop out of it (including me) and got like 3000 energy within that time by just gathering coins. It had to be fixed of course, it was made very rare, but too rare, slightly less rare after, but still rarely occurs.

The more max energy you have the lower the chance you get another. There are a few other factors as well that I'm not disclosing as it's not my place.
Plus, you made indeed by unlucky in addition.

The 1500 players online and campaigns has about 3 years in between; you're trying to make it seem like campaigns caused the player count to dwindle while (along with the other updates) it caused the player coint to go from ~50 to ~250-300 average.

No new players are coming in and it's easy to blame something for it, but that doesn't mean that's the actual core of the problem. You can say the same for plenty other aspects; such as the toxicity of the community, as Emma333 points out:

Emma333 wrote:

I doubt that’s the actual reason new players are leaving. Yesterday I was talking with a new player who was shocked about the edgyness and negativity a lot of players have. He wasn’t able to talk to anyone but me because everyone was being rude or ignored him. Getting to know the community is a must if you want to play the game for a long while, because otherwise it will become boring with or without campaigns. When no one wants to talk to you or calls you out for being a noob there’s no reason to keep playing the game. The community has been like this for a while and I know some people have tried to change it, but that’s so hard to do.

Whatever happened to that professional dev team that was gonna revive EE? Atilla, is that still a ‘maybe’?

As of yet, it's still a possibility. I don't really have any control over how it goes - it's entirely up to them and NVD.

NVD stated that he was working with Emalton on a brand-new shiny client together, despite himself having contributed nothing to development for the past several months and actively avoiding and ignoring the staff, and the rest of the community in entirety.
If NVD seriously buys into the illusion that he'll actually get anything done - well, then it's definitely not happening at all.

New client =/= legendary reboot that was once promised

Also, NVD, have you paid any taxes over EE income yet?
