Creating a fake account will not protect you from facebook's tracking algorithms.

    Why Ucool being one of the few games that at the time didn't require a facebook suddenly gave away gems to get people to sign-in, and why it no longer seems to be interested and giving away stuff that otherwise you would need to buy is an interesting question.

    There are 3 hypothesis:

    1) They were expecting a boost in users from friends of the people to offset the revenue loss from people not buying as may gems. When they reached peak a opt-in there was no purpose in continuing to bait people in to signing in with rewards and they could go back at getting people to pay for everything.

    2) The drug dealer explanation: They get you hooked on the 1000 daily gems and some of you will keep on buying them.

    3) Somebody was paying for a data that could be gathered by having your in game behavior linked to a real life person via facebook. The way you play this game says a lot about your personality, and that information is very useful for ad agencies, companies that screen employment candidates or companies like Cambridge Analitica. Pretty sure that the cutback in gem rewards around the time Cambrige Analitica started unwinding their operations because of media attention on them, is just a coincidence.

    1) and 2) are the likely explanations. 3) is just something to keep conspiracy theorists entertained.
    may i add the 4th one?

    4) It was rumored that HC service would end soon. If UCOOL shut down HC immediately, then they would have to face lots of angry players who probably gonna sue. How much $$$ would ucool lose if 40,000+ players sue???

    In order to make those angry players NOT to sue ucool, ucool must make HC as boring as possible, so players, slowly but sure, will not play HC anymore. so ucool won't have to deal with angry suers (everyone leave HC is ok....no one sue is very ok too).... Then the rich Ucool can finally retire in peace. Happy ending for Ucool ...

    Agree. That has been always a real possibility since the day that Valve settled with Blizzard on Dota2 copyrights and went on to sue Ucool and Lilith. In May 2017 the case was sent to trial by jury in federal court. After then there were no more news on the case.

    They must remove Shadowleaf skin from GC using their own logic, but they never make such move

    Straight question Betty.

    Since development of your Facebook feature is still broken , what would happen from your side of the field , if someone is willing to make a 5 fb accounts to claim 20 gems per day instead of max 4?
    And if he do that , wich fault is that , his or yours?

    If it was a bug, it means it was like this from the moment you implemented the fb feature, so why it took you so long to fix it, it was known that everybody get 1000 gems daily. Why not have it fix from that moment not one year after.

    You are not able to fix the displaying bug of gifts received since you implemented the FB feature. But you can nerv the amount of gems received 2 times and tell us it was a bug.

    Then tell us what you want with a feature in the first place and donít change it after one year and tell us it was a bug all the time. If it was a bug fire your programmers cause they are shit at their job when they need 1 year to fix a bug
