Till All Get One
tl;dr; This is about an event in an mobile online game called Transformers: Earth Wars and the way, rewards are distributed by the game company.
During this weekend, Alliances battled in an epic struggle to allow their members access to a new ally for their ranks. For a total of 3 days, players from all around the world fought for event points to win one of the desired top 5 positions from the global leader board. In the process, hundreds of dollars were spent, personal interests were put aside and players engaged in an unprecedented race.
It didn't take long for a selected number of 6 alliances to emerge from the crowd by putting a growing lead between them and the rest of the community and due to the fact that there were 6 groups trying to win one of the 5 leader board slots, the amount of energy, time and money put into this event was far bigger than any of the previous events. Sadly, even though all those players gave their best and kept an amazing event battle going for 3 days non stop, the leader board structure gives no leeway for the human factor and despite the fact that all of those players ranking millions! of event points over the course of this event, some of those players missed out in the end, defeated by no more than a few percent of the total of their great achievement. With the event finished and going over the numbers, it is apparent that only the eager and fierce competition of all those 6 alliances allowed for such immense numbers to be amassed by all partitioning players.
However great those achievements might be, it leaves a bad taste in the mouths of many community members. With the small group of people that can win the final price, many players feel left out and lots of discussions and arguments started over the course of this weekend as well as the last leader board event. With the adjustment to giving the final reward to the top 10 of all alliances, this kind of event would still encourage a large percentage of players to go "all out" and secure a high ranking spot on the leader board while a larger group of players wouldn't be "forced to give up" early because of the ever growing gap between them and the leading alliances.
We, the players that have signed this petition, wish for the company Space Ape Games (UK) Limited to rethink the reward structure of leader board events like this, increasing the number of people that can get the final reward with a positive effect both on the gaming community as well as the overall event participation.
