  • Finally firestorm 15 was announced and I have few questions based on the description of the world provided:

    1.- This will be a fight of GDI vs NOD, meaning that GDI will be able to kill only NOD players. Is that correct?

    2.- By default all GDI teams will be allies? Is that correct as well?

    3.- If a NOD alliance land on the same sector of a GDI alliance, they will be able to fight right away because they will be enemy by default. Is that a correct statement?
  • @EE_Elephterion if you can please answer the questions above. Thank you!
  • nod vs gdi just means alliances can only contain one faction or the other. all alliances and players not allied with each other can attack one another still.

    To clarify, this is the same as another Firestorm world. As @chadthurston has said, all it means is that an alliance be made up of only one faction, either GDI or NOD. They're not automatically enemies of any alliance nor automatically allied with any alliance. That is still a decision made by players and their commanders.

    Also, the 'random layout' statement is no different from many other worlds recently. It means a random layout is selected by the system generating it and it is used for all players when they enter the world.

    The alternatives, a fixed layout (set by the developers) or fully random (every slot random) haven't been used for a very long time.

  • So @gamerdruid and @EE_Elephterion can you please explain how come we are seeing players from different faction on the same alliance? It was supposed to be one alliance with GDI or NOD players only but not both at the same time. Can you elaborate on that?

    explain please, same alliance different faction.
  • repair that or Free Milion of funds for a people like me who got stress all day seeing enemy NOD in GDI alliance.....
  • NE first TIB poi level 26. West 13+14 ......Is a joke?
  • But who created this map? A child?
  • I agree with you @sentierorosso this is so confusing and dysfunctional. I'm wondering why the moderators are not responding. Maybe they are trying to convince the developers about the mistake they made? :)
    @gamerdruid and @EE_Elephterion a response from you guys will be more than welcome on the concerns we are expressing. Thanks! :wink:

    They are aware of the issues and concerns expressing in this and other threads. I have responded in other threads. As far as I am aware, map creation is done via software not a human, child or otherwise.

    It's unlikely a million or even one TA fund will be issued, if it stresses you so much then leave the world.

    I've suggested turning off FA attacks for a time pre-announced but that type of change may need further discussion and work which won't happen until Monday, if it does.

  • something with the shields is not working.

    bubbles lost without reason or warning msg at a lot of player bases.

    what is this?

    Likely a bug to do with the non-uniform base levels generated.

    Just be careful for now and I'm sure we'll get a response on Monday

    Probably correct - there are a number of issues that need addressing, even if it is to say 'sorry, we messed up'. Changing things mid-world or even at the start of the world produces a lot of complaints too.

  • And different faction in same alliance?
  • server was big disappointment, sorry but teams are mixed some started in front of 22s some have to dig to the 22s, cant see how that is right and not just a money grab from the company, envision are bad.
  • i think maps are generating by the Computer and drop a bases POI and tunels with a random location.... same be on H3 game when you create a random map for playing with friends......i think a system is generating that in random range and not care who get hight who low POI or Bases but its a not fair start for all....

    Yes, they are generated by the computer with constraints on locations set by the developers (which is why you don't get level 45 bases at the edge of the forgotten bases area). In setting up the FS15 world the constraints must have been adjusted which has resulted in level 22 in the landing zone and at the edge of the forgotten bases area.

    Whilst it is 'unfair' the way the bases are distributed, it is highly unlikely it will change so it is up to commanders to manage the issues it raises. Making it too easy would also be a problem!

  • My first move... I lost bubble
    Not protected with forgotten attacks the first day... Crazy. No chance to progress
