Title: No more sales?
Post by: JacksRage on October 05, 2013, 03:38:58 AM
For the longest time it seems there has always been a item or items on sale at any given time. It's been a long time since BFG put something up in the discount bin. The last one ended on 08/15/13 05:00:00 UTC.

This brings me to two questions. One, will there be anymore discount specials? And two, a deeper question. Has BFG decided to let the game run it's course? I'm not saying abandon or shut the game down. I'm sure you guys will let this game go to the last few dedicated players. Have you guys decided to let the game be what it is and not add anymore big things such as ships, defenses, buildings, etc... Sure there are bad eggs here that will never be happy, but that's with anything. But SFC/SDE has a dedicated fan base. Keep the progress wheel rolling. Yes, i know i don't get to see BFG's side and the work it takes to make it all happen, but we appreciate every step forward.

Sales happen when they happen. If things are always on sale, then it's no longer a sale - it's an everyday price. The lack of sales do not indicate anything other than the fact that we don't currently have a sale.

That's a fair answer Matt. It's you guys game, you can discount what you want when you want to.

But what about my second question?

Your second question has been answered several times recently. We continue to maintain and update all of our games.

I'm having a problem purchasing a merchant to convert crystal to hydro.  Anyone else seeing an issue with that?

Account specific problems require that you submit a support ticket to receive help.

Okay, I'm still having issues with purchases in your store and I've sent 2 tickets on this already.  The first was deemed "resolved" when it was suggested I clear my cookies.  I have done that repeatedly and still no luck.

What now Racer X?

Tickets are marked solved whenever a response is sent from our team. If you're still having problems you should reopen the ticket or submit a new one.

I'd recommend disabling a third party scripts and browser extensions and trying again to see if you still have an issue. Further, you could try the purchase from a different browser.

Good to see that BFG have carried on in their own way. What happened to 'the spirit of christmas' or do they only celebrate North American Holidays and forget this game is on the WEB ?
