|Global Goonzu Online > Global Goonzu Online and Community > Free Gcoins? Try it for yourself..|
|Posted by: Ubiquity Jul 16 2009, 02:25 PM|
| So there is a new promotion going on where you can get free Gcoins simply by filling out a servey(s) with Peanut Labs (I hope your not allergic). I have not tried this yet, but I will later on in the day and see how much of it is BS or if this thing is really real and simple (usually these things never are).
All you have to do is login to the main site, and find the link for free Gcoins under NDOOR's billing site which you can get to when you go to purchaise Gcoins like usual (https://billing.ndoorsgames.com/fillup/freegcoins.asp)

|Ok... I dunno if its just the computer but I tried clicking on that link to the "free gcoin survey" and all I get is a blank screen... is it some pop up window thingy that maybe my internet is blocking without my permission?|

|Well I was doing one of those surveys was for likr 84 g coins, they said quick and easy and in less then 30 minutes. Ok so I started was allright so im clicking and clicking and clicking 30 mins go by and I felt I wasn't event half way just a waste of time.IMO don't do it long and boring + can't buy anything with 84 coins.|

| Just as I thought, so its one of thoes 500 question surveys that gets you to look at ads while you answer stupid questions, or some offers even require you to sign up and download some bloatware, while some even require deposits after signup. Almost everyone has seen these "win a free blah blah, just let us take up hours of your lifetime", 99% of these are bogus and simply get you to reveal information about yourself or add your email to a giant mailing list for spam.
TL;DR its a waste of time and not worth the effort for the small amount of Gcoins you could get (if you can withstand the time consumption and wild-goose-chases)

| Honestly, wtf is ndoors/luminary/goonzu trying to do...
This is the stupidest thing I have seen them try to push.
Why not spend half the time it takes to do this and make the game better.

|we all know ndoors ^^ they like to let us wasting our time.|
|Posted by: spg Jul 18 2009, 05:49 PM|
| those surveys are used to take your information and send them to marketing agencies to call you in the middle of the night and sign you up for spam mail
G F-ing G

Yeah but, you get FREE Gcoins!!! *drools*
...ahem, total sarcasm
|Posted by: spg Jul 19 2009, 03:41 PM|
|gotta sell that marketing gold of information inorder to get those "free" gcoins|
|Posted by: Grambo Jul 19 2009, 04:05 PM|
| that promo is awful, NDOORS should not assosciate themselves with this cheap of a thing. Surveys suck first of all, I dont have to take the bait to know I'd probably end up with something special in my computer too.
It's also true that given the projected completion times for the surveys described, you can get the stuff by grinding in-game faster.
The absolute only use for this nonsense is maybe if you got 2950 Gcoin and you just need 40 or 50 more for a key set, or a similar situation. Even then, the use comes with a price: "the marketing gold of information" and the risk of being probed.
this promo actually meets the requirements to be defined as "a rip off". literally.
sorry to anyone who wasted their time, thank you for gathering the information for the rest of us.

| if you think about it ... gz has gone down hill since its prime
NDi has sold out gz as a cash cow game posed to destroy itself for making as much usd as it still can
with the decline in dedicated players, and more and more mules
the only ones that are actually doing well in the game now are the ones that spend on gcoin purchases and most likely wouldnt need to get the free gcoins because they are easily able to recharge their accounts at the whim.
with that being said. there are 3 types of players in the game now the mules, the non IMers, and the IMer membership. to be assiocated with the IMer membership you are able to get unbanned from the game even if you hack, bot, or scam. because "you are a paying customer" you are able to get unbanned for the things you are told you are getting banned for
there have been countless back and forth with havoc and ndi on who gets banned and who gets unbanned.
goonzu has lost its fire imo, and now its whoring itself to the marketing aspect of the internet so ... G fing G NDi

|Hazey, you've been whoring out to me for years. Pfft.|
|Posted by: SnookPD Jul 20 2009, 03:34 PM|
|hate scamsss ... what else with ndi.. it just a big money making scam.. just more of the same.|
|Posted by: Ubiquity Jul 20 2009, 07:27 PM|
| Final verdict:
STAY AWAY FROM THIS SCAM EVENT!, ITS NOT WORTH IT!
|Posted by: Purple Jul 20 2009, 09:10 PM|
| For me it went down a long time before NDI took over, i think it's partly scapegoating on certain people's behalf...
And for me, and no offense to anyone in this, but Players should never go from regular players to becoming GM's. AND be able to login their playing accounts.
Total Conflict of interest
|Posted by: Ubiquity Jul 20 2009, 10:21 PM|
|I agree, I have suspected some foul play with a certain GM regarding their surprisingly sucessful 'personal account'|
|Posted by: SnookPD Jul 21 2009, 12:22 PM|
I dunno wth u ppl are talking about... thought this topic was about the free gcoins? but while we're off-topic, what u talkin about??
|Posted by: spg Jul 21 2009, 02:06 PM|
|playerGM abuse lol|
|Posted by: Grambo Jul 21 2009, 10:50 PM|
GMs also playing the game on seperate accounts.. This would not be as much of a problem in some other games, but given the nature of GoonZu it is definitely an issue. the politics, the shares, inside information in the market, and so on. Not just an issue of someone having a robust character with nice equips, it can affect other players also so I gotta agree 100%
back to the actual topic: I have got to say that the game developers have done very well to add new exciting content over the last year or so, and some of the content is meeting player demand. They're charging money for pretty much anything new that comes out, they appear to be taking in a fair amount of money, and yet they resort to something like this event. theres just something terribly wrong with it, I dont know if they thought people were going to love this event or something but anyone with half a brain knows better and if they tried it then it was most likely against their better judgement.

|I tried one survey and completed it only to receive 0 gcoins for not fulfilling specific requirements. Other surveys immediately knocked me out with one of the primary questions. It seems one only can receive gcoins for choosing certain items|

| Yes, we know you were bitter about the idea of NokWon still played by Havoc, Purple. We got that. But there was a reason for that and that's this:
Players do not like to talk to GM's.
Players only like to COMPLAIN to GM's.
Now complaining generally can lead to solving some current issues, but there are just some things that Havoc could not find out from the users except via his player account. The same goes for LaharGM. All GM's have had a player account because it's simply good practice to get to know the players as friends to learn what they really want.
I will NOT however defend any of the NDI GMs. I have my own suspicions there.
In regards to all you people just now complaining about how NDI is scamming you: oh boy did I call this months ago or what? I'll be able to tell you more what they've done in about a month.
On a final note, Havoc's firing has led to one good thing, and that good thing is the reason why I bothered to come on here and post again. Call me a hypocrite or whatever, but reason I came back is because the one and only reason I would seems to have come true. I'm sure the good news will come out soon, but as for now you'll just have to deal with the status quo. Enjoy the second half of GZ weekend with no GMs since they fired Havoc ^^
Oh and one last thing..if you finally agreed that something NDI did was a scam, why is this still on the front page?
|Posted by: Purple Jul 26 2009, 09:25 PM|
| Bitter? Naw, far from it. Do i agree with Someone going from player to GM? Nope, for reasons i've outlined in my previous post.
your arguement might hold weight, If Havoc was a GM first then created a playing account after... which isn't the case here...
Your arguement about interaction with players could also hold weight if thats all that was done on the account too. pretty sure bows were ranked, shares were aquired too. this would be all well and good, and may have been completely above board. however due to the nature of it all suspicions will be there either way.
It's like having a Football referee playing for one side and making judgement calls, it's un fair in my book. This is not a knocking Havoc or what he's done it's just my own point of view and one i stand by PGM'S aren't something i agreed with anyways regardless of what powers they may or may not have had.
Sorry for going off topic, won't do it again.

Rok we may never seen eye to eye, but i like think there was always a common respect between us.
Ive always let you be you, and me be me,
we cared about the game and server both with same passion but did it in different ways.
although i do feel you slander me in many ways and times, i feel you did it out of your honest judgment and i never once took it personal or used it against you in any harsh feelings.
I can honestly say nothing on NokWon or any of my accounts has ever seen the light of GM powers.
I would gladly say that in all transparency, I can explain any of the reason you have behind your feelings.(and yes i do know some of the things you feel and think, and also things are not always what they see)
We can start a new topic on this if you would like. You are a intelligent person.
You have many disbelief's about me, my role, what i did and even my PGM status, I would like get the air clear if you would like, For you my friends and also the great community who i served for 3 years.
to be on topic.
This whole thing is sketchy at best.... selling to advertisers at lowest common denominators is not a sign of strength at all...
nor does it insure confert to the consumers

| 3weeks i made 1.4k gcoins with fake information only on the free surveys and email stuff.
just make a fake email for spam and leave it. not that bad actually. 1.4k gcoins is pretty sweet for providing fake info in a couple of surveys
