Pogo: A Leading Online Game Site
The good and bad perks of the leading game site Pogo dot com. Also, a fun forum to learn more about Pogo and make friends.
Pogo dot com is a very fun game site with a large selection of games to play. You can be a free member, but if you want all their fun badges you need to be a paid annual member. Like most companies that become very popular, there comes a time that they start adding charges on just about every new feature they add. We all know that this wasn’t the original image Pogo advertised when they first started. Then what other reason but greed could be behind the extra charges that keep coming? A little more than a year ago they started adding badge albums with challenges that you need to buy. It seems they are trying to come up with more ways to make everyone pay every month?
They created a safe way long ago to add a mini of your creation to your profile. People try to pick faces, hair, clothes, and body that best resembles them. I think this is genius, as most people prefer not to post their real self photo for various reasons. They have now added a wider selection of mini items such as pets or backgrounds you must pay for if you want them. There are also 19.99 games you can only play if you buy them. These are among the best enjoyed games they have.
For a full description of people’s views of Pogo land, I strongly suggest joining a free forum called badge addicts. You can reach the site at www.badgeaddictsforum.com . There are thousands of members, with thousands of topics. Though they love Pogo, it’s a place to vent about Pogo land. It’s a good place to learn about the games as well. They even play chat games of their own.
I think Pogo also feels they can charge more, because players win money on jackpot spins. The thousands of members of Badge Addicts can tell you how many one a big jackpot spin. Also, how often Pogo makes up an excuse why they are disqualified. Their favorite is to say the player used an auto program, even when they never have. An auto program is a system that plays the game for you with computer smarts of winning harder games without an actual person playing. The more they play, the sooner they’ll hit a jackpot. However, Pogo can check your Java log to see if there’s an auto program running. Well how in the world can they possibly use that excuse when it’s not true?
I have to rate their customer service poor, whether by email or phone. You will talk to a phone rep from a different country that you cannot understand well. I called a few years ago, when a computer error on their end put all my ranks back to zero. Three years of game experience gone. Though I still had the rank badges to prove it, the man I tried to understand refused to fix this. Excuse me, didn’t I pay you for those?
Well, there are some complaints us Pogo members have, but we still keep on playing. Like I said it’s an awesome game site regardless of are qualms. I just hope in a few more years I can afford to remain a member?
