Hey everyone. Overdestined from Pocket Empires here. (Head of Customer Service)
Just want to clear up a few things.
First of all, yes that chat log was from Skype. When I put this up I intended for it to be a post on each thread, not spam. This was also after the spam had started.
I don't think everyone here realizes just how hard it is to get a community of 80,000+ active players (probably 5,000 of which do this) to completely stop.
Also, the developers didn't start this and it is ending soon as we just sent a system-wide message out.
The Skype log was a huge mistake and it wasn't mean to crank up the spam level, nor is this some super mastermind plot myself and the other staff members thought up.
So I would like to apologize about this, and also i'd like to inform you that this will be over (at least a majority of it) extremely soon.
If you play, please continue to enjoy our game. If you don't, give it a shot. You'll be surprised.
Thanks for understanding.
