Here are a few easy fixes.
1) Any gear that can be bought with PP should be able to be bought with a value equal to the in game cash value of PP.
2) Allow players to become spar partners without the need to be FB friends (this is done on other games). For instance...after you fight someone you send a spar request to them. This whole mass add email stuff is CRAP...FB frowns upon this and people who put their names on this list are now reporting those who send a request for spam, even when MMA is mentioned, or maybe that is why.
3) Allow gang fights to be re-playable. This was explained in depth here... http://forums.digitalchocolate.com/s...ad.php?t=17820
4) Have someone from the DEV team answer questions on here. No offense to the Moderators on here, but you are just middle men who love this game. It feels as though there is a disconnect from what most people are asking for and what is actually being worked on. There have been many good posts and the only response is wait, be patient, it's being worked on. I can not believe that it takes months to fix an issue with the spar challenge, or any other issue like that.
Bottom line if you have a product make it good, support your customer base. DO NOT string people along with half truths and missed deadlines. Prove to your fans that you are working on fixing things. Because just saying it does not get the point across when you have failed to meet those expectations in the past.
Please do not take my words for bitterness, but rather passion for what I feel. I do like this game and I hope it does well, I am just not very confident that the DEV team is listening and actually working on what people are asking for.
P.S. Why not look at all the ideas that have been posted, make an in game poll and ask what people would like the most.
