  1. I believe that the wipe is hoped for because some players have the perception that there has been a great unpunished exploitation of exploits by some and that the general mismanagement of the game by NQ has led to a situation so chaotic and frustrating that they want a cancellation to start over. Let's say I understand it but a wipe will not change anything: there will always be an exploit to exploit and NQ must change management to create order. Maybe it will happen. If it were to, for me, despite being on hiatus and awaiting developments, it would certainly be a definitive game over. I think for many.
  2. (Alpha 1 baker) A few days ago I went back to DU to see the new update, Demeter, after several months of not logging in. I warned all the friends I played with to go back to setting their territories before losing everything. Nobody cared. I have loved too much DU to lose it all. So I logged in, set my three territories HQ (never gave a damn about owning land, I just wanted to make ships), looked around ... and logged out. I don't feel any urge to play DU. No encouragement, nothing that entices me. And with Demeter I also began to think. To think why. To think how it is possible that a development team, no matter how short-sighted NQ is, has introduced such a tedious, annoying and impacting mechanic on every game mechanic such as automining and taxes. And my conclusion, which is as valid as anyone else's, so it's just an opinion, an impression, is the following: Demeter adds a routine typical of free to play games. You can do it all but if you want to play for real either you take the time or you put the money into it. He's a suspect for now. Which could be confirmed in the coming months, with new declarations, or more in time. In the meantime, they have doubled the cost of the monthly subscription, making a calculation on their server costs, of course, but certainly also taking into account a forecast of lost users after Demeter. Here many users are talking about the fact that they are in Beta, which is a masked alpha. Working in anticipation of the launch. Warframe has been in beta for 10 years. Star Citizen we don't talk about it. They are not working in anticipation of the launch. They are working to not lose their jobs. And on free to play: it would also suit me. I would accept it. If there was something to pay for. If there was any fun to pay for. If I have to pay just not to lose things, this is not free to play but moral blackmail. My opinion. Avoid salty answers
  3. Mr, I left 4 months ago. Honestly, I don't care anymore. Ask yourself two questions but stop answering acidly, no one attacked you.
  4. I think they are beautiful. And that they are squeezing lemons to get some juice before closing everything. Already seen with other projects. The aesthetic work is fantastic ... and for this very reason, presented at this precise moment of development, it should make us think of "why now?".
  5. Each of us has a different reason for playing video games. I can tell you why I played with it: to vent my creative vein, my need to build and see my aesthetic sense and inventiveness realized, my hobbyist design skills and amazed by the artistic solutions found by others. Yes, I am from that part of the players who played DU for his creative ability. PVP and commerce have never attracted me. I liked to build. And I still do, in other games and even out of games. I don't know what "all adults" are doing to play a video game. Everyone has their own reason. There is no more valid or less valid reason. There is only how you perceive it, for yourself. As for the rest, I am sorry to be "brutal" but no one who is going to close a game will ever tell you "in 6 months we are planning to close everything, in the meantime we will squeeze you as much as we can". It's commercial madness. You won't know. If they tell you that everything will be fine, that they won't whipe, and that everything will go smoothly, it could be true, or a huge bullshit. It is up to you to decide whether to continue or not. But what you are asking is ... naive. Extremely naive.
  6. Pvp will change absolutely nothing. What will happen will be that those who want to enter the PVP zone will do so with armed ships and the pirates who now enjoy shooting unarmed ships will be blasted by heavily armed cargo ships. The pirates will arm themselves more and it will all end in a search for small lonely targets to attack. Which will be few. And alone they won't make any difference to the economy. There will be some movement at the start for the arms race. Then everything will stop. PVP is a pillar of the game. But "ONE". NOT "THE" column. It all has to work together for it to "really work". All column together. And right now they are raging on mining because they have realized that they have greatly underestimated the players' extraction speed, combined with lag problems. You may have realized for yourself that schematics are not an attempt to fix the economy. The economy of the game does not give a damn. There are simply too many industries in the game. Too much industry = too many processes -> too many processes = too much lag. Or do you think that going from the single liter of ore needed to craft pure ore to 1800 liters served some gameplay purpose? Let's be honest: NQ isn't proving to be interested in game mechanics, but just trying to plug some technical problems that have exploded in their hands. NQ please deny me. But not in words. With those you will never convince me. To me and everyone who has lost faith in your way of handling the game. With the facts.
  7. I played with a new group of players who joined DU for the first time after the release of 0.23 Just one / two days later. I felt their fantastic enthusiasm die a little at a time crashing into bugs, optimization completely absent (one of them has a PC for work with which he runs Cyberpunk at ultra and fixed 60fps: DU snaps them ...) countless ships destroyed by docking mechanics, lethal manouver tools, endless loading and handling of game problems ... nonexistent -> impossible to reach markets. When the technical assistance put the umpteenth ticket of one of them on hold indefinitely (after a week they still have not said anything) they started to abandon the game. And the same thing happened to 2 other groups of players in the last year. The problem with DU is not 0.23. DU's problem is NQ. Contradictory communications, advertising bordering on deceptive (we all know how they presented the game for the launch of the beta ...), lack of communication with the community. I understand that they are short of breath and that they are trying to save the shack. But they are doing it bad. Really bad.
  8. I also thought that the only way to make him understand how serious the situation is is to counter-advertise him by activating streamers and social channels on which to show the real state of the thing. They shouldn't be able to block the account because the NDA has dropped and no wrong information is being given. it doesn't seem to me to violate any TOS. Otherwise they should block the account of everyone who made YT videos.
  9. you are absolutely right. I think... This is not the problem though. The problem is that I, and many like me, am a gamer, not a mathematician. If I read "+ 5%" for every time I activate the talent, for me it is a sum, not an equation. I'm not incapable: it is NQ who expects me to understand, without explaining it, that I have to make a calculation that has nothing to do with the gameplay. Like many other things in this game, the way of communicating is done by programmers to be understandable by programmers, or other people with math / logic mind. Only this is a game. Always assuming it's not just a bug. Ps: all players I've played with have understood that + 5% ore extracted at level 5 = + 25%. Either we are all idiots, or NQ has to explain himself better.
  10. in my language "+ 5% ore extracted" means that what I get is more than those who don't. Or is a bug - talent dont works correctly. Or is it an impression (possible ... I hope ... a ninja nerf to a basic mechanic is already wrong and a very unpleasant thing). Or whoever wrote it really meant a speed boost and the description needs to be changed (and lost 2kk of talent points and 2 weeks of subscribtion for something different).
  11. in a week the new group of players that I have found and that I am comfortable with have blown their ships, S / M-Core, about 10 due to the lag, the docking and the stupid way in which it has been changed maneuvering tool. Even I, who have a good gaming experience, managed to detonate one of mine because I hit the ground with my bow while using the manouvering tool (WTF !!!). One of the players had just bought 20kk of stuff at the market and the ship exploded while he was standing still, making everything he bought disappear. A year ago I met a group of compatriots. In love with the potential of the game, they got tired of the game after a month for reasons unknown to me. this summer at the launch of the beta I found another group: disappeared after a month for lag, killer industry, bugs, lack of content and insertion of superficially thought mechanics (broken docking just to name one). Now how long will these new players last before they quit? Easy to say "it means DU wasn't for them". You can tell me once. Twice. From the three times no: it is not DU who "is not for them". It is the game that is mismanaged and thought with the breathlessness of someone with water in their throats and has no idea how to fix the huge holes he has created. No idea apart from one: don't listen to the community. Absolutely never listen to it: never let them propose something too intelligent and then we make them feel important.
  12. I reinstalled the game last week, on a different hard drive than the one I had kept it on from the beginning, due to another glitch, and ... I'm continuing to play. If they are an exception, I am happy to be, but for the moment the game works. If he stops doing this soon I will consider as if you have brought me bad luck :P
  13. The idea of making parking areas very far from the terminals you buy from would be ideal. A teleportation system will bring your avatar to the terminal and then you will indicate in which parking tiles to place the purchased resources, so that you can easily return to the parking lot and through another terminal unload the parking containers in that of your ship. If the parking areas were, for example, one every two tiles along the perimeter of the Ark zone, the traffic would already be greatly diluted, all the various markets could also be eliminated by centralizing everything in a single central HUB. This way there could also be many more avatars concentrated in one spot, such as a large market square, which would be visually impressive. It is definitely neater than the hallucinating chaos it is now: 30 seconds freeze - 1 frame - 30 seconds freeze - 1 frame - 30 seconds ... absurd PS: obviously any dynamic construct that is parked inside the Ark Zone must return outside the perimeter within X time or it will be compacted / eliminated / teleported / something!
  14. I have Windows 7 and play from Alpha1. If the game doesn't work at release, I'll see what to do, but currently, it works. I also strongly advise against switching to Windows 10: for about 8 months there have been overt problems with Nvidia drivers that cause crashes and disabling glitches. Just go to the Nvidia forum to read the discussions for yourself. Obviously it is not something that interests all users. But the fact that the problem has persisted for a long time already encourages me to continue using Windows 7.
