dear trion
me and many others in the community have boosts turned on just now and while your messing round with this patch for the last 4 hours we have had boosts counting down and being wasted which is really frustrating i really hope you guys are going to compensate the community for the boost time wasted i thought that 1 hour was fair enough because all the problems this patch fixes im happy giving up 1hours time but when its like 4 hours just now almost and its looking like it will not be up anytime soon that is just not fair when they cost us the price they do so please trion can someone over there think about sorting our boost time back thanks

anyone else frustrated regarding this whole server down stuff post below thanks:cool:

You wanna talk about compensation? EA is closing down The Sims Social on Facebook, and their only advice for you if you'd bought their in-game RMT currency was this: "Spend it quickly and have fun with it before we close the game! :D"

You've already got free boosts, sod compensation, ask them to pull their finger out and make their product function as intended.

diffrence is ea have a horrible record with this stuff but this was purely me giving trion a sugestion from a frustrated user and tbh trion are normaly ok with this stuff when it comes to giving the community what theyre owed but yeah that sucks about ea cant say im surprised tbh

I wouldn't be fond of giving people rare type vehicles, kind of... defies the rarity aspect, atleast for the white chargers, as for the black ones the time trials are easy enough really.

I think it's a Challenger :D
I also think you all are expecting way too much from Trion. What they have already done for us has been fantastic. You all obviously love the game, or you wouldn't be b*tching up a storm like you are, so at least thank them for that!

you aren't 'owed' anything other than for their product which you have paid for to work as intended, what do you do everytime you have to wait to be served in a shop? Sue them because they 'owe' you time?

Wrong quote

But nonetheless, its not a huge deal...its not like they are releasing a $15 DLc then taking that away...its a 50 cent boost.....I would suggest complaining if this downtime lasts more than 24 hours. Till then, bite the bullet. You learn from your mistakes. I never buy anything from a company during its release month. I wait, then I buy.

General rule of thumb with timed things like boosts, never buy them right before a patch, yeah it will kinda suck to deal with boostless playing for a bit, but it's better than feeling your boost got wasted by the patch eating up the time, cause let's face it, **** happens.

Quit complaining. You're going to be alright. Trion is a very generous company I'm sure they will make up for this error. Your complaints arent going to change Shtako, so shut up and enjoy the game.

I don't see why it matters, they gave everyone 1 week of boosts, so logically, you're not losing your money until the week is up.

No, they do not, it would be nice of them to do so, but they do not need to, you just had the incredibly bad sense of timing to purchase a timed item right before a patch.

you sir are the reason why the big corporations and gaming companys walk all over us now and its very rare these days we acctualy get a game with no problems your the reason why more and more companys release games that are like betas that they patch up later with fixes

Not quite. Because on top of your boosts, their gifted 1 week boost is still active, which should still have 2 or 3 days left on it.
More than enough time for them to fix before you actually start losing your money.

Might be better if Trion cut all the boost times in half and make it so they only tick down when we're actually connected and playing the game. Would solve quite a lot of problems.

Well to be honest I think he has every right to complain

I myself have boosts running at the moment that were bought with bits
and as you know bits are bought with real world money

I for one am not in the game of throwing away money for nothing
So yes I personally feel that Trion

(regardless of what compensation we have had prior to this latest debacle)

do owe us something in return for wasting our well paid money
because they cant do their jobs and check the bloody patch before uploading.

I wouldn't be happy to walk into a shop to buy bread
just to be told I had to wait 4 hours before I could use it

and then only get half of the loaf after the 4 hours was up
that would just be a waste of time and money not to mention a giant pain in the ***** wouldn't it? lol

You ask for people to grow up and then attack the OP like a little kid. Why do we all care so much? Best way to get rid of the whining threads is for people to stop posting in them. Next time you a thread titled something like this one rather then post how much of whinner they are just don't click on it and let it die.
