    After taking 48 hours to think about it, here is how I see it in all actuality.

    This was a decision that directly effected the community. Therefore, it should’ve been a community decision. However, the community was only made aware of the change after it was decided upon “for” them.

    Just as whoever made this decision was an employee of King Games. Therefore, I would think if it was decided that people’s earned achievements were going to be taken away from them, King Games would want to approve that. However, I’m thinking that King Games would only be aware of such a move after that decision was made for them.

    I just don’t think that taking away any achievements that were previously earned by a player is the kind of decision King Games would approve.

    Wouldn’t that be a horrible public relations issue for a gaming company?

    Tagging some of the people who’ve publicly disagreed with this decision in this thread for their take?

  • Hey! Would you like to give us your opinion?

  • GreymaneGreymane Posts: 3,758 Level 5

    Lol @headoperations that is most unlikely. This community is for king games.. They *totally* knew and approved the decision themselves. They probably thought they were handling some problems and maybe expected awesome feedback. Whatever the reasons for this change, we cant ignore it hurt some players. Anyway i am here to have fun and ive met amazing people here, i am no longer really concerned about the point system. But really i feel sorry for people who feel their achievements were taken away from them after working hard for them.

    👻You doing great, dont stress, keep hydrated!👻

    @headoperations

    Although I feel little disappointed about new ranking system, I still enjoyed this community no matter what my level is, having fun with other members and sharing the opinion about someone's discussion in this community.

  • headoperationsheadoperations Posts: 4,298 Level 5

    You’re probably right. I just figured King didn’t have much to do with something small like this community, and they hired people to run it for them.

    However if King’s Media Relations Dept received questions about any new policies that takes away earned achievements from only a select group of players, I didn’t know if they would find that concerning.

    I would think something like that might cast a bad shadow on a gaming company.

    Especially if a couple of those questions came from writers on gaming sites?

    I have same opinion with @Greymane and @santo_chris97 I enjoy playing game and have fun with virtual friends in King community. The achievement in community is a bonus and I do appreciate them.

    @Miss_Dani Yep.

    You and @Freddy_Falkner are completely correct.

    I kept a close eye on the points today and sure as shiz I did not receive anything for accepted answers besides the great feeling of having helped someone.

    Wow! Now knowing this I completely picked the right choice in Freddy’s poll. 😂🤣😅 Six feet under it is.

    @Pounawea I don't like it for the Legends, etc...

    I really feel sorry for your commitment.

    For me it's nothing. I answered the @Freddy_Falkner comment.

    Thanks for the tag @MightyWolf & @Diamond Lim

    Thank you for the support.

    Just wanted to tell you that the aim of 5000 points is not dissuading for people to help others at all. Even without the extra 10 "accepted answer" points, simply glad that those who accepted other's answers are helped: getting past levels or solving an issue.

  • Freddy_Freddy_ Posts: 60,178 Sweet Legend

    Just a Shame that due to the CHEATS with multiple Accounts to get accepted answers have reduced the CM to have to implement this. Not fair on many that have been demoted, who no longer get points for accepted answers till they have reached a milestone.

    Will not stop the cheats either and most know who they are and they still in the community, Should have been long gone with a quick ADIOS BABY

  • headoperationsheadoperations Posts: 4,298 Level 5

    I can’t see how the 5,000 points could be viewed as anything but dissuasive.

    Most members who had already earned the achievement, had it taken away last week. And now, due to an unethical rule change, those member are practically being asked to “redo” what they’ve already done 5 more times. Only then will they be given back something had already earned.

    And to make it even more dissuasive, this theft of an achievement was called a demotion.

    Demotions are most commonly associated as a type of punishment, and why should the active members of this community be suddenly punished.

    And given the tendency of how “history repeats itself”, will it happen again in the future if someone thinks it’s “for the best of the community’s future”

    I’m going to provide one last way of how this change can be looked at:

    At the end of a work week, an employer hands out paychecks to their employees.

    You never hear of the employer immediately taking the paycheck back, then informing the workers, “If you’ll work 5 more weeks like this past one, you can have this paycheck back. We think that would be for best”

    Now I’ll quit voicing my opinion on the matter, because I’m sure unsympathetic eyes are tired of seeing it.

    Don't know now to get points and nothing here makes much sense to me.
