  • chrissischuldt , i said to remove alts completely by IP blocking. Try and read something for once in your life.
    You guys have also formed your own project in Firestorm but it is a project full of crap alliances and that's not my problem.

    i strongly agree, there are no 2 players using the same IP. out of almost 8 billion people worldwide we can barely get 1500 in a server and your telling me some people might have the same ip due to reasons?
    There are plenty father/son combinations that actually play for fun and have their own computers so can play at the same time. They will have the same external IP.


    yes i know and also mothers and sons/daughters and my son has an account as well so does my cousin. i dont want to lose the ability to use more than 1 account either, i just feel like the incentives are too strong not to do so. you guys are giving project the wcs because everyone knows they are the largest group of cooperating players with the most players that abuse alts to benefit a main account and the current development is rewarding this behavior. everyone knows mass cooperation is the way to win and everyone can win if they wait their turn but i wouldnt mind playing in maybe a different style of server that doesnt promote that behavior so much. maybe smaller teams and 1 badge only? theres got to be some sort of style of server that isnt a carbon copy of itself each time like these FA servers now, OOC/projekt will still dominate the other servers in the same way regardless of how badly warped the playing field is. maybe no poi? maybe equal sectors? these guys got it too easy we ae a week in and the want to empty the entire server for themselves to play on i mean cmon who doesnt see this happening?

    Chad joins every server with 4 alts and then name drops me. I have never complained about alts in general ,the only complaint I had was a WCS with no competition.

    i'm perfectly happy to have no alts if chad gets rid of his, i just use mine for pvp fun.

    you should see the way these people talk about me in these servers too by the way, this same old thing has been going on for years because i like and prefer pvp and voice my opinions. level out the playing field buddy and we will see whos actually doin what with what next time.
  • Chad If it was done like you wanted will you tell my son why he can not play the same game as me
    sorry the ISP way is not the WAY
    I dont know what the answer is but its not limiting the ISP Address

    i literally just said this... i dont want to lose the ability to use more than 1 account either, i just feel like the incentives are too strong not to do so.

  • Like a broken record. Alts or no alts the game is still dying.

    The game is dying. Like a drowning person in a swimming pool. We all wish it were not true, but it is there in front our our eyes for us all to see. In fact its more like a murder, like a crime of passion before our eyes. Our beloved game is being killed by her once before loved ones. Take your foot off of the head of the person you hold under water in swimming pool and you save her life. For Command and Conquer it is all too late, it has already drowned.

    Her owner don't really care because she is merely a business venture as soon as the share holders say no more then the life support will be switched off. I guess the replacement business venture waits in the wings poised ready to roll, ready to use any resources that might remain, servers etc.

    The unfortunate truth is the game developers have run out of ideas to freshen up game to make game challenging again. The y have no interest. They have no new ideas. But so long as the share holders don't complain then the developers will not do anything.

    If the game were not planned for termination and developers were looking at new ideas then the question remains "why have we not heard or seen any of the potential ideas being offered?" the answer is because you don't develop a dying game, there are no ideas being offered. So you run it down, you deplete the hunger and interest for it, then you let it die. RIP C&C.

    Sad because i just like many others that play wish so much more for the game and we hold our breath waiting for revival or for news of great things coming but........... nothing. Latest server issues are just another way of trying to speed up the dying process.

    Funny thing is we are told the game is not dying.... I say we have been kept in the dark like mushrooms too long and call on the believers of a future to prove it to us.

    well said.
    how many threads are there the last month about ideas for a better/improved game? 6,7,8 or even more.
    how many detailed answers by @EE_Elephterion about alts, pvp changes, new worlds and so on? I can tell you its 0! He told us he´s open for a discussion - but the truth is that he´s not! And please don´t tell us its because of holidays - the discussion started way earlier.

    Because of that i have stopped writing about the future of the game. Simply there is no future. Game over.

    ah man you are so dumb , you told us to block ip , anyway if people in the same college or family are playing together because you don´t care , you only think about yourself because you actually believe that you are the **** main character in this game so be quiet and play with your project 2.0 alt alliance
