  1. If we don't get any press release or statement from either of them then I suspect the worse for DU. If the guy taking over has a history in finance and not really in game development then I believe he'll look at calculating the risk-to-reward of pushing development of the game vs. Selling the tech to Microsoft. Which one would yield the most money and over X amount of quarters and years. SWAT analysis of keeping the game up and probability it would succeed if they changed up how they ran it's production. If JC gives his response and not the new guy, then DU's in for some rough rode If the New guy gives a press release and not JC, then DU may have a chance because it shows the new guy fully intends on making DU a success.
  2. This is a very good idea however, it conflicts with recycling aspect of the game to some degree. But I do see it's use in DU. Really I thin, if NQ goes the cheap and easy route they should just make most of the T-1 elements up to medium sized items require no schematics or at least make those schematics all available on alioth Then provide a streamlined and easy way for people to access them. In addition to an indicator letting them know they can get most of the T-1 stuff at the markets but anything higher will require them to travel off world... using the T-1 elements made on alioth. The monster of .23 schematics is here so now the best the to do is for NQ to reconfigure it so it sits better with the community's ability to grow. Right now, it's too steep of a learning curve for the newbies and too strict of a game limitation that breaks more newbies than makes them. As a result, the population dwindles. Even if none of these ideas are adopted, one thing most of us can agree on is that the way schematics limit progression for new people in DU needs to change drastically. Otherwise DU won't hit those Beta launch numbers ever again.
  3. Not saying we're leaving, we'll be around but you will see less of us NQ's version of content vs the community's version of content are vastly different. Coupled with their inhouse employee problems and the rate of quality releases (which is zero at this point) My faith in this game is like a hair away from zero. I'm only watching the game and community's progress at this point instead of logging on In case NQ turn this game around, by some miracle. I've offered suggestions and did what I could to help, but it feels futile. ATV is pretty much a bust, nearly every release has been heavily redacted on their release due to poor execution, timing, game breaking bugs that weren't caught by PTSD server or whomever is left in ATV, or just bad project management overall. NQ's staff have gone so lean that some of our favorite mods & admins are gone or have been heavily silenced. In addition, there have been so many signs of trouble within NQ's ranks that it justifies my lack of confidence in their capability to manage the company, game and well.. anything. Again, I hope they turn it around and I'm not forcing BOObians away from DU, however we're far more active in other games than DU for sure.
  4. Get your AC carebear buddies to push NQ into focusing on making PVP better and worth even logging in for. Then and only then will you see a big BOO resurgence.
  5. As 2nd in command of BOO, I assure you, there's zero chance of that happening in this or any dimension or reality.
  6. Given that NQ are swamped attempting to figure out how they're going to turn this game around with each release I doubt they'll have the free time to assist. If they do then it'll do them some good to get points with their salty community. ... that's just me from a community member perspective...
  7. I'm giving it time. The number of bad signs in DU, the NQ company and the response of the community and known streamers with NQ people either abandoning ship or getting kicked out from $$ or mismanagement events just reinforces the position. I, like many others, offered up suggestions to help NQ's development (outside of the energy management posts) only to see them withdraw further into the dark and sneak an update push to the community with nearly ZERO headsup... speaks volumes about where they're at.
  8. Ok then maybe I should backtrack a little and think like NQ: They should give the project management person paid leave for 3 months to think about what he did wrong and have him come back with a raise in his/her paycheck in hopes of doing better next patch...
  9. .24 may not be .23 ... and it didnt make the game worse.... it just didn't make the game better
  10. What can I say that others haven't already... how much more can one out of a growing number of people drive the point home that NQ's management is just ... about the worst thing that's happening to this game. of all the things to put your efforts on, it had to be better GFX, prettier rocks, a jet pack toggle... Things that are nice to have instead of the shit that the game needs to turn it around? Who ever is in charge of project management at Novaquark should be FIRED
  11. Nom... Nom ... Nom ::Stares back suspiciously:: 😑
  12. lmfao If I decided to make the full decision I'll think about it
  13. Somehow, I feel like because they felt compelled to listen to the carebears about making a PTS server for them NQ is unable to support a public facing staff... or they're just in the hole entirely.
