@EE_Elephterion

there are many questions here about new servers + changes to the game.
I don´t see one answer...

Therefore once again:

1. do you see that because of the updates/changes there is almost no more pvp on every server?
do you agree that this is bad for the game in general? Are there any changes to that in the near future?

2. because of the "alt-situation" ( i agree you can´t do anything against it) we def. need more servers at the same time so that all the "fair-players" don´t have to deal with the project guys . Do you agree to that? Will there more new servers?

3. will there be new servers the next weeks + while project is playing the WCS or do all the other guys have to wait month before they can play again?

  • We will start worlds on a regular basis parallel to WCS, that has always been the case.
    We are open to feedback and discussion what can be done to incentivise PVP again, without rolling back the various fixes to exploits and other loopholes.

    PVP

    1. increase the pvp loot (ofc not to the level years ago) - most important aspect

    2. reduce the rep-time for pvp - for example 50% less reptime needed for pvp in comparison to base shooting (factory max. rep time 3h -> max reptime factory for pvp 1,50)...something like that

    3. reduce the bubble time at the beginning to a few hours - so players can start pvp earlier- after 7 days its almost impossible

    GENERAL

    1. reduce the impact of pois - own base production because of good shooting should have some value

    2.to continue starting new worlds on your regular basis is the wrong way! There have to be more new servers on a shorter period. There are so many worlds already finished (Tib 50,51,53 - don´t know all the others in detail) + because of the project guys playing the WCS most of the other guys immediately would start new worlds.so why waiting?
  • Agree with above
    First well done to Project (TTD) for there organization

    But it is now killing servers,
    Many now, who are not in one of the Project alliances, no longer finance, just play with 100cp and 12 hours repair, for fun of playing, what is considered a dead server. 47,49,51 and now 53

    So for Mr Average player the comments above make 100% sense
    so come on Time between Dropping new worlds, is not written in stone. or is it !!!!

    We've been told in the past that new servers come when the previous one is nearly full - but even that isn't a strict rule.

    everybody knows that - you don ´t have to repeat it again and again.

    We try to explain why this „rule“ should be changed!

    You know that but I'm not sure 'everybody' does!
    My comment was in direct response to the this question posed:

    Obviously you didn't read or understand that!

    As for why the rule should or shouldn't be changed. I personally think a lot more worlds could be launched, more special worlds with unusual settings as Firestorm worlds, a Vet world and a number of simultaneously launched worlds with limited numbers of places, maybe even as small as 2000, but with large world settings. Even more level 80 worlds, maybe with a start level of 30 as they have done in the past on the PTE would prove interesting.

    However, I don't have a voice in the discussions that take place and don't know the contents of the contract between EA and Envision in any respect so can't predict or change anything any more than the rest of the people posting here!

    Not sure how many posts i´ve seen the last years´s about required changes to the game. Ofc there have been some small updates - but thats nothing. Its a waste of time to write anything because Envision is not willing to put any intense work into that game. Finally you have to accept the game is the way it is. If you´re bored of that play look for a different game. Don´t hope for changes - it will not happen.

    You´re right.
    "We are open to feedback and discussion what can be done to incentivise PVP again"

    Not a single answer. I don´t care about that game any longer.



  • приравняйте ремонт к очкам атаки в пвп и все будет норм я про разницу в затратах

    @EE_Elephterion
    On your regular basis when will finally open some new servers???
  • The regular basis being that a world is nearing its capacity but we may consider another Firestorm.

    make a server with only 1 badge to earn, doesnt mean you have to change anything just dont give anything to reward a second or third place finish, so that multi alliance cooperation is not as enticing to people who only need a participation ribbon to feel happy.
    The regular basis being that a world is nearing its capacity but we may consider another Firestorm.

    from the looks of the last few servers, i dont think nearing capacity will be a viable trigger for new server starts for much longer, 50% of the player base has all jumped on one side pretending to be friends for easy wins. less and less people are going to be willing to entertain spending time in an environment like that for long, and even less willing to spend money on no competition or no chances of playing a fair game against half the player base. how fun is t53 everyone? is the wcs going to be exciting? i hope you all enjoy yourselves while im sitting here bored looking for a new game to play.

    good to know - please open the new world quickly.

    EDIT:
    the new start post by @enigm means that there will be no new Firestorm this year???? Can´t believe it....

  • thank god there finally is a new Firestorm 17 soon B)
  • This can be the real WCS and not that current joke at the moment.


  • pretty obvious that project cheats, also obvious that EA wont ban them because they spend a lot of money. not a good look for EA. I still have the original C&C on CD, thats how much of a fan I used to be. Now, I think its going to be time to move on. Game is old, very outdated, and like I stated above, the only concern for EA is money it brings in.

    It is outdated and an utter waste of money. When the only players in servers are project and potentially Koegy (if he came back to rescue everyone) then it is probably time to quit or move onto another MMO game. Real game companies do stamp down on things like server abuse.


  • There is no cheating. The game mechanics allow it and the way we play in allows it.
    For most players it is not a way they wish to play so most are disgruntled and turn away from the game. The only real solution whether we like it or not is to vote with our feet. STOP playing the game STOP funding.

    Project guys may have strategically dominated the last servers and possibly the next as well, however they are not the only ones that have a strangle hold on the game. On Tib50 the fort has been killed 5 times and guys prepare for a 6th then 7th and amazingly the number one badge team "Horny Guys" still call the shots on who how and when https://prnt.sc/23jm587 they don't even allow you to invite back your old mates so that you can all badge together (for 6th or 7th) ...... lol

    Dictating who comes 2nd even 3rd i can understand as them are normally the guys that support you so that you can badge 1st but dictating 6th or even 7th just shows how the game has diminished. This type of thing would never happen if there were multiple servers to play and new challenges to conquer. The big guys after 3rd (bronze) would not be interested they would move on to their next challenge.

    So the choices, we vote with our feet and play no new servers or EA give us multiple servers all starting at same time (within few days of each other). OR we just stop moaning in forums and play the dammed game and accept no real change.

    Tick Tock

  • Come on let's not talk about it anymore. It is 100% scam what Project did on the WCS. Anyone with a Project badge should be ashamed of belonging to this gang.

    But EA is also to blame because they don't do anything about it, no matter how often you talk to them, write complaints or make phone calls. For EA, only money counts, including that from the multi

    We only have one thing left, never again to start a server where these cheters are
