Is this where we are now? Having to bribe the devs to pay attention to the game?
I don't pay much attention to retired players, but Bella your statement caught my eye. As a long time paying supporter in a "free to play" game, I'm not willing to pay much more than I already have.
Seems to me that the devs had a nice arrangement with kong, steam, armor, etc., and their lack of attention is why we are in the current state of affairs.
As I recall, there was a post by Supreme (now deleted) offering to buy the game. If Magnus and his crew are done with AF, why not try to get something for it instead of letting it waste away. The current monetization has to be dropping rapidly in line with reduced numbers of players. (That's another argument, but as a daily player I see fewer and fewer participants, and also, how many alts skew your numbers?)
