How to easily get a refund (IOS only)

Tap Titans 2 Walkthrough

Hey. I’ve been overly requested to make this thread… so here it is. So you want a refund?

Reasons for getting a refund:

  • Not receiving gems or content.
  • Disliking the nerfs and changes GH is shoving through regardless of community out lash.
  • Spending gems on features that were heavily nerfed, with no compensation to the player.
  • Spending money on features that limited your ability to collect premium currency with no foreseeable compensation.

… Got it?

So, Listen up.

We’ll be using something called “Apple live chat” to get refunded within 48 hours. Essentially this support feature of Apple hooks you up to a support representative within minutes.

Here’s a link to Apple’s Support Page.

But before we go to live chat, we require one thing… Purchase IDs. These are what make purchases distinctive and can be used to single out purchases.

Purchase IDs can be found within the email receipt apple sends each time you buy something, or if you delete them… use Apple’s “Report a problem” to look up the details. “Report a problem” Link

Yes… I know that’s a pretty scary link, I don’t know why it’s so damn long. Go look up “Apple report a problem” if you’re paranoid.

Ok… so now that we have our very important purchase IDs… we can go over to live chat now.

Fill out the form, wait a few minutes, and you’ll get hooked up with a representative.

Tell them exactly why you want a refund, and give the purchase IDs when asked. Ie… If you haven’t received gems, tell them you haven’t received the content you paid for in X days, and so forth (cough *Holiday pack* cough).

I personally got a refund because I didn’t like these new changes, as it’s not what I paid for. Along with the fact they nerfed an item I paid for by approximately 10x and offered no compensation whatsoever.

If at some point you’re asked if you went to the developer, tell the truth. The truth that Game Hive has lackluster support that copy and pastes messages, without thoughtful reply, and whom won’t offer real help. I get that they have thousands of players flooding in, but this is unacceptable regardless.

The live chat agent, depending on who you get, should have you done in about 5-10 minutes.

Just remember,

If at any point you need more help, message me at /u/TheDragonic on reddit.

Good luck guys and gals.

Niantic should learn Community Management from /r/TapTitans2

I’ve been playing Pokémon GO since it launched. In other words, I’ve been sharing the same information vacuum with millions of players for a while.

Recently, I picked up Tap Titans 2 and quite enjoyed it (as you can see by the number of guides in our TT2 section). As all newbies do when they get stuck on a Stage, I visited /r/TapTitans2 to bitch and moan about how unfair and difficult the game was. To my utter surprise, the subreddit was not a whine fest as I expected: it was a place where DEVs came to talk with the community.

The Book of Shadow Incident

Recently, TT2 devs made a mistake and the subreddit went bananas. If you’re not playing TT2s, let me break it down for you: they nerfed one of the core progression artifacts (BoS) to the ground.  And they did it silently, just like Niantic does it.

However, thanks to the power of common sense, they reached out to the community and fixed the issues. Two reddit threads come in mind:

Just look at that. Look at it. Enjoy the community management goodness. Respectful, in time, humble. That’s how you do Community Management (yes, capital CM)! And to give some perspective, it took them less than 12 hours to revert the change and bring smiles to everyone’s face.

The Cheating Incident

After the BoS incident got resolved,  a new problem emerged: players were obviously cheating the hell out in the ongoing TT2 Tournament. Again, instead of caving into shame and self loathing, the TT2 devs went full out and collected player feedback.

The result is this glorious announcement: Cheater Ban and New chest. Can you feel it? The power of good and healthy community? Mmmm. Of course, players noticed it and congratulated to TT2 devs.

You are what you say

It’s often said that “you are what you eat”. I’d argue that’s not true in modern gaming. You are what you say, or better: “your community is what you say”.

Places like TheSilphRoad are the reality of Pokémon GO’s lack of information and transparency. They are beautiful places, but still a sad reminder that we need an online research section to understand what the hell Niantic is doing with our favourite franchise.

Stay bitter, play better.

Fake Super Mario Run APKs for Android are flooding the Internet

Players,

be advised that a number of APK sites is offering fake Super Mario Run APKs. Super Mario Run has not yet been released on Android, nor it will be released until 2017.

Nintendo has confirmed that there is no APK for the game in the wild, nor it has been released.

Pages like apkreal.com and koplayer.com are offering fake APK subpages for the game with terminology ranking from “download now” and “the APK will be…”. Be careful, do not fall for these cheap tricks and avoid downloading anything related to Super Mario Run on Android.

The same goes for the flood of apps that is currently on Google Play. Apps like “Super Mario Run Guide” are not real apps for the game, as there is nothing to play yet.

Stay safe and game better!

Nintendos expectations to earn $60 million suddenly decreased.
