Thanks to the latest Spiral Knights patch, this is what the Spiral Knights Crusaders have been up to for the evening:
“Oh well, I’m logging off. It’s not like I need to be on
for the support request to not be answered.”
In this screenshot, we’re in the 80th minute of waiting for a response (other than “we got your request”) to Sparkywolf’s in-game query as to why her 12,000 crowns disappeared after being outbid in the Auction House.
We’re pissed off.
Hell, I’m pissed off, and I’m one of the most forgiving people around.
We’re also not happy about the increase in energy spent crafting; as Sparkywolf pointed out, that means a single 5* piece of equipment costs $4 of real-world money just to craft, not even pre-made or with a guaranteed unique variant on it.
Oh, and forget about buying it from someone else. I was all excited about getting into the crafting part of Spiral Knights, because it sounded just like Pirates, but guess what? You can’t sell 4* or 5* gear anymore.
And then the final straw came when the moderators started locking petition threads.
I’ll wait to see how tomorrow turns out before I unleash any of my own invective over this, but this update did not go well. To be honest, I could have dealt with any of the update except for the part that going to chase my friends away, the increased cost of crafting. They’re the reason I play the game.
This is not the post I wanted to write tonight.
