Removal of Era iPhone's manager, snk.
Petition For The Removal Of Era iPhone’s Manager: Andrew (xAndrewx)
So, as many of you fellow Erians know, our favorite MMO (or whatever) is not the same as it was when we first began this colorful and utterly wonderful game, we were immediately drawn into it like a moth to a flame. For the first few months, all went well. But of course, all good things must come to an end. The golden ages of Era abruptly ended because of a new way to win. The God tier-Browning Automatic Rifle were released at the price of $250,000, as well as a new way to earn money known as “Gralat Packing”. This method is when a player purchases an iTunes gift card with real money and uses it to make an in-app purchase. While we understand that this is necessary to fund the server and expenses, snk took it over the top. The prices soon began to climb, as an innocent way to bang up a couple of bucks that are needed to fund a server as well as to make a living off of turned into a greedy way to extract money from people who want the item more than they want to work for it. An excellent example of this is the auction system. In order to obtain an item that is exclusive and excessive to the server, a player must either work for several dozens of hours, or to open their wallet and drop one hundred dollars to purchase a single item. While making real money is important, the WAY in which snk implemented this was not suitable. Gralat packs should be spent on guns and weapons, but not elusive, p2w weapons and items.
Not only did he completely branch off from Era’s original idea of gang combat and PVP, he essentially made it Graalonline Trading Simulator 2013. Not that trading is a bad thing, but the focus of the game shouldn’t be solely about trading. Favoritism persevered throughout this time, and the “popular” players obtained the rare weapons, while the less fortunate were stuck digging for days and weeks. What followed were a series of obnoxious and repetitive updates, not taking the suggestions and player opinions into any account whatsoever. In addition to all of the repitition, snk practices favoritism, and if you are not a player who is either about to sue the company or is insanely popular, you won’t get a response.WHAT WE PROMISE THE NEW MANAGER WILL BRING TO ERA:
Background Information about Era before it became an iPhone Server
While some of you may know this, others of you may not. Era first began as a PC server way back in 2004, before legitimately anyone started to play, aside from Delph, Rick, and Chrisz. This was their world, not monitored by Stefan, which wasn’t the best. They had it rolling, but it was Stefan who helped Chrisz script the original Era stuff. Era then rolled throughout history, and branched into two servers, Era and Era iPhone. Era iPhone at first seemed too good to be true - Basically, I was able to play Era away from my PC! Aside from certain issues such as not being able to drop and trade firearms, and not nearly as many items in general, this was basically a perfect clone of Era! Snk was running it well, under Stefan’s watch.
Then, everything changed, when something clicked in Andy’s brain, and he decided to run the wonderful server right into the ground.
Not only did he completely branch off from Era’s original idea of Gang combat and PVP, he essentially made it Graalonline Trading Simulator 2013. Not that trading is a bad thing, but the focus of the game shouldn’t be solely about trading.

What followed were a series of obnoxious and repetitive updates, not taking the suggestions and player opinions into any account whatsoever.
Therefore, with this being said, we, the players of Era nominate the following people for manager of Era iPhone:
Alfonso - DRAGON551
BlueMelon - BlueMelon
Nick - Xloria
Fed - The_Federov
Cloyd - Irrashinal
Tig - Tigairius
fp4 - fowlplay4
Scoper - Scoper
TSAdmin - TSAdmin
Zachary - MonkeyBob
noto - FrozenLies0
By the way look at this post. We can quote our fellow Graalians. http://www.graalians.com/forums/showthread.php?t=22873
some very good quotes in that post btw^ Ghetto raged a page long
Ghettoicedtea: “be warned, they will ban you for following the rules.
also if you speak of gun balancing, you will be banned.”
Ozzy Magus: “
Quit iera since 6 months now due to some sht with the manager, snk.”
Like getto said, ez to make cash, mining gives lots of $ too, and unlike iEra, Era has a PROPPER,FEE-FREE trade system, aswell as LENDING system, and your friends can give you cash trough this system aswell.
If 16 man spar events didn't exist on iEra, I would have 5 out of my 40 guns I actually own.
Bar being 300k on pc,Ok? But you can make 50k a day.
iEra? Buy those nice 27500g packs for 9,99$/€ =90$ for a bar. No thx.
Snk didn't allow betspar because he said we'd use it as a trade system (when iEra didnt have a trade system), still doesnt want to add? Why? Because skilled players would get rewarded for being pro, which he wouldnt allow ofc.
Era pc is maybe, not noob-friendly, but iEra isn't either, but at least I know that if I am good, I will make it on pc.
Gst champ twice in a row, 23k wins, what did I get? 2 gst hats, 1 ganghouse which snk refuses to update because of personal beef with me.
7 years on pc, this kind of sht didn't happen. Not to talk about those 'famous' kids getting hired on iEra (*sigh* jenni *sigh*) and all those other suck-ups.
I have experience, if Pc era was an ios app or if iEra would be accessible trough client publicly (and players would see pc era), I bet you everyone would play pc.
To wrap this up, our final words are this: Choose freely.
