  1. After your replies I agree that my title was maybe too catastrophic and that buying a reskinned game may not be the end of the world. I hope you're right and that this plot's lack of production values on the artistic side is only because their creative team is busy with the app, and not because they're currently lacking one. Right now the thing what would make me go "Yes, the creative team is back", as unrealistic as that sounds, would be the return of comic page narration for the plot story.
  2. I don't know to be honest, since I didn't go up when I fished it up. I think I'm about 90 though.

  4. Rememeber the plot that was supposed to be going on? Well, it updated! And boy oh boy, there's a game to play! JN mentions it's "A reskinned Pterattack"...but man, do I wish it was. What it ACTUALLY is, is a reskin of a cheap license game you can buy pre-made for your site. Anyone can pay $999 to get the rights to the game use, and reskin it for their site. Which is depressing, since TNT felt the need to spend one grand on a game that a first-year CS student can crap out in half an hour. This has an important implication. This means that currently there's no free coders on the Neopets staff able to produce this excuse for a game right now. They didn't have a single intern with minimal programming knowledge that they could lock in a closet after being told "We need this kind of game within an hour or two, stat".
  5. Hey guys remember the plot that was supposed to be going on?
  6. This plot, together with the bugs-riddled app, the delayed schedule for everything on site and the lack of improvements on all sides are all symptoms of the same thing. Neopets is trapped in an insidious Catch-22 at the moment. They're in a rut, and they need to bring in more users somehow. But for more users, they need more content. But for more content, they need competent programmers and a local creative team instead of outsourcing their whole production to India. But to do that, they need more money. But that requires more users. But that requires more content. Etc etc etc To this I'll add that Jumpstart in itself is only the tip of the iceberg. The game is in the hands of something much more sinister right now, and that's NetDragon. Every single one of their franchises they've bought so far has been sanitized for Chinese audiences, given a revamp centered around looboxes, and sent on its merry way to make billions in record time before being killed off. Be very afraid the day you notice skeleton-related items disappearing from the site. That'll be the harbinger of the end.
  7. It might be that the writers have taken a page or two from Berserk and have decided to just give up on updating once our main character set off on a boat.
  8. You are right, I have amended my post accordingly.
  9. No. EDIT: No, I would like to interject for a moment and declare that, indeed, I will not be partaking in the doings of the Kadoatery anymore henceforth. This feeling of mine is born out of my decise lack of enjoyment for the practice of Kadoatie Feeding, which might have been more eloquently expressed through a far more concise and laconic "No."

  11. You're right. A picture isn't A word, a picture is worth a thousand words.
  12. I would like to protest the staff edit of my OP post, as it clearly contains more than seven distinct, separate words. 1. 'cause 2. I 3. sure 4. don't 5. ahah (laughing) 6. aha (fading laugh) 7. a (waning hope) 1007. A picture
  13. 'cause I sure don't, ahah aha a This post has been edited by a member of staff (Duma) because of a violation of the forum rules. Please keep your posts at 7 words or above. Per the reason above, please review our SPAM rules.

  15. Redistributing the wealth? What are you, a communist? The Neopian economy won't bend itself to the will of the proletariat, we will continue on this ruinous capitalistic path until its bitter end.
