Sanctions on Russian OP Accounts
Due to the ongoing level of fraud, account hijacking, point farming, multi-accounting and abuse of exploits with our website and content, we have sadly decided to close the door to new and existing users from the Russian Federation.During the conflict in Ukraine (which we personally and professionally stand strongly against), we had considered early on whether to put sanctions on Russian customers, ultimately we decided not to do this as we didn't feel comfortable putting restrictions on innocent, legitimate and anti-war residents that have been customers with us for many years, we were one of very few European companies who decided

Opium Pulses Arcade 4.0 Release!
Since the discontinuation of Flash Player by Adobe in December 2020, the days of Flash-based browser games are beginning to feel like a distant memory. As reported by us in October 2019, referring to the then-upcoming deadline as the Death of Browser Games, we spoke about what this meant for the decades of creative media and interactive games built for mass consumption and even how it would have a huge impact on the Opium Pulses Arcade, which had since amassed nearly 300 Flash games since its introduction in 2013.As we always had a feeling the future of Flash titles were numbered,

OP Achievements Balancing
For over 5 years now Opium Pulses have allowed members to collect loyalty points in various ways, whether that be via cashback in the store, completing quests or by earning on-site achievements by completing certain tasks and milestones.After so many years and hundreds of thousands of registered users, we are left with a lot of data on how our members interact with the website and how they ultimately earn and spend their points.One thing we have noticed is that our most popular achievements are the less interactive ones (what we call our 'Idle Achievements'), such as years of membership or entering/winning
Well-written but a little self-indulgent and heavily focused on personal frustration and distaste for the game without actually telling us much about the title at all. I have no real clue what the game involves or what the objectives or goals are?
Glad you finally got the review out, but maybe focusing efforts on reviewing something you don't seemingly loathe intensely would have been a better call, as it's clearly had a negative impact on the overall delivery of this review.
Although it seems Pinky took something valuable from it, so who am I to argue with that?
Hope you're well.November 09, 2022
great review, very informative article now im curious if I would try this game. Of course with mid expectations but its still very colorful and prettyNovember 06, 2022
Blah blah blah ... What beautiful and completely unrelated to what happened here, the words.
Okay, I'm not from Russia. What do you say to the residents of Kazakhstan, Belarus and Ukraine, whose accounts were also banned?
And what do you say when Opium Pulses bans you? They really don't like to fulfill their obligations, you know. There is no user, there are no obligations... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯October 24, 2022
That is a disgusting word to use ,especially knowing what is happening to the Ukrainian people at the moment.
What happened here is the same thing that happened to trading cards on Steam and also the same problem that Alienware has suffered from in the past and is now suffering from again as bad actors have shifted over there on mass..
I wouldn't be surprised to hear it also played a part in other sites restructuring or completely closing down.
To try and blame the site owners for your criminality ,well ,no surprise there.......
The action taken to stop the constant targeted abuse of fun gaming giveaway sites like this does not in any way equate to "genocide" and to suggest so is just shameful and speaks volumes about how certain people's minds work.
We can only hope that one day soon russians will improve their standard of living (and thinking) and they won't feel the need to commit crimes and ruin what is a fun pastime of gamers around the world.October 17, 2022
Wow, sounds fantastic!October 10, 2022
your opinion is imposed by films and the government, in reality it's not at all like thatSeptember 26, 2022
Surprised by the incredibly measured and restrained policy of the site administration. It's incredibly difficult these days. However, trying to be liberal with a bandit nation is always a losing stance. Once again, I am convinced where the Russians are, there is fraud and theft.September 24, 2022
Russian users are like their government. If somewhere someone does something around the rules using hacking, deceit and abuse, then it is always Russians.
It is high time to close the entrance of this contingent of people to all the world's Internet sites.September 24, 2022
