I played Galaxy Online... in essence the game is good... that's about as far as it goes...
No real updates in ages, in fact still in "Beta" stage although every oportunity for "events" which all cost $$$$ is quickly taken by IGG. Several cases of people buying mall points and not getting them, including one case of IGG's servers sending a double-request to Paypal which resulted in a doublecharge, and IGG's response was shutting down that (VIP) account as a "security risk".
Also cases of major battles being suddenly turned around by stuff like destroyed fleets magically reappearing on same slain commander, and of course IGG threatening to "take action" against all players demanding action against the cheaters. Also other cases of game rules and mechanics "magically" changing overnight mid-battle without so much as a patch note or anything similar.
Alts aren't allowed to interact, but if you spend enough on MPs you get widely ignored in that sense.
All replies by tech support are pre-scripted and run through googletranslator.
Service center attitude: You paid? So what, we decide what's against the rules and what is not. Desist or severe actions will be taken against you.
Server mergers with every sort of excuse despite the players shrieking about damage to gameplay, which by the way has been done. Alts rule the house.
Wallet vs. Wallet: definitely!
forum.go.igg.com the horror stories abound there, that is the threads that weren't deleted by mods when things got too obvious regarding players getting epically screwed. Oh, battle logs with cheat evidence suddenly went missing from servers too here and there to spice things up.
*Edit* Forgot to add: cases of hacked accounts by the million, including this one where it was confirmed who did it, it was confirmed that he got the passwords from downloading the forums' password database, and yet that player not only did not get banned but also came out with these very "suspicious" advantages all the time. Classic IGG from stories i've heard happening in other games of theirs.
It goes on and on i tell ya lol
