  1. Exactly! Just look at Valheim and V Rising. They are just re-skins of basic crafting/adventure games with their own unique changes. Those games are huge success stories. NQ is over here trying to reinvent the wheel at every turn, only to fail and fall back on.. time gating?? I'm baffled, just baffled. The only way to make sense of any of this, is they are cutting their losses and trying to milk the release for whatever they can recover.
  2. So, instead of adding actual fuel to industry, like every other factory game, NQ is turning schematics into fuel... The correct answer is right there, it's in every good factory game that I have ever played. It should have been generators leading up to reactors to give more elements to play with and manage... This is a train wreck. I didn't think anything would surpass New World for the most epic-dumpster-fire-trainwreck of a release, but NQ is lining it up so DU has a really good shot at surpassing New World for the worst release. And just like New World, the only thing more cringe than the train wreck itself, is the white knights that follow saying everything is fine.
  3. This is some pathetic attempt at reverse psychology... Those who don't want a wipe are terrified of being surpassed be new players... See how stupid it sounds. It sounds stupid because no one has brought that argument to the table, until now... as some pathetic attempt at reverse psychology. At least come here with something good. put some thought into it.
  4. All guessing games just to prevent any accidental fun.
  5. Finding a loop hole to get around the word cheating is low, really low. It's NQ fault for not taking away ill-gotten gains as soon as they happen, but it doesn't change the fact that you got something, or too much of something, when you shouldn't have. And all of those ill-gotten gains are gone with a wipe. Everything else we earned we will get back in a short time.
  6. This would be great, and I would agree, if the game wasn't dying. We are not enough to keep the game going, you have to understand that. That why NQ is preparing for release, to try and get more paying customers. This hasn't made sense all the other times it's been said. If you will gain everything back after a wipe, why are you against it? The ill-gotten gains are the only thing we lose with a wipe.
  7. You missed the last question: How is that better than starting over with no ill-gotten gains to try and save the game itself? You may not realize that you're surrounded by cheaters, but you have to realize the game is dying. You may not care about twinks, or cheating, but do you really think new players are going to be ok with it? How could you be a legit player and not want to maximize saving the game? You realize, if the game shuts down, there is no game where you are surrounded by twinks so you can not care about it.
  8. YOU will be ok with no wipe, I will be ok with no wipe, everyone who is playing now will be ok with no wipe. WE are all OP AF. Wea re all twinks at this point... Why always about you? Why can't you focus on new players? Try to be honest here: New player experience with the AH cornered, twinks, and seal clubbers from ill-gotten gains.. Good or bad experience for new players at launch?
  9. So, your ok with being surrounded be the 99% of players who cheated there way to the top? Think of all the work you did, then realize you were surpassed by cheaters who did one tenth of the work you did. You don't have twinks, but you're ok with being surrounded by twinks, You didn't cheat but your ok with a game that is mostly cheaters... because you played legit? Does that make sense? You are ok with those cheaters causing new players to leave, at launch? You are ok with NQ catering the game to mostly cheaters, because you didn't cheat? This all makes sense to you? How? What reasoning do you give yourself to play a game where you are one of the very few not cheating? How is that better than starting over with no ill-gotten gains to try and save the game itself?
  10. How? Explain. Do the mean words hurt that much? If I take the mean words out, will you give me heart?
  11. No. You conveniently left out using alts... Your post is so selfish, that the odds of you being one of the legit players is miniscule. "Get lost sucker"? Legit players don't talk like this... I would wager that if there are 300 of us playing, 1-5 players are playing legit. Those players are not coming to the forums to defend cheaters. What you are suggesting, is that all the cheaters, the exploiters, the multiple account holders should get to keep their ill-gotten gains because you played legit and you want to keep your things, at the detriment of the game.... you are full of shit. This suggestion is so stupid it is beyond defense. That is not how legit players act. Legit players get pissed off at cheaters. Never has there been a legit player surrounded by cheaters, come to defense of the cheaters. It is so out of character, that only a cheater would try to pass this behaver off as legit, You're a liar, your post is a lie, and you're full of shit.
  12. That's one of those exploits that resulted in ill-gotten gains. Should have been corrected then, but I think even then NQ knew they would have to wipe and just let it play out. The schematics are gone on release. The last letter confirms it.
  13. 100% this. The game is not ready. The basics have not even been mastered. Adding things instead of working on basics... who was asking for flotillas? I think this will be another amazon: new world release, instead of a NMS release. Basically a train wreck. And then you made it about your ill-gotten gains... No one said a wipe will fix the game, a wipe will maximize new player retention... NQ is thinking about money right now. Getting the builders back in the game and getting the cash flow back on. Because the launch looks like it will be a disaster, you should be able to keep your TP and quanta? How does that make sense?
  14. I think only NMS is valid here, but it is lightning in a bottle. They did an incredible job at recovering. The launch was still a disaster, and it crushed the game. How many games can come back from such a disaster? How long did it take to recover? Imagine if they had a good launch. I think we would all like to see DU be another NMS, but NMS is B2P. DU is going to monthly sub, and that doesn't sound good. FF14 proves my point. That would be great for DU to go that route too, but they don't have that kind of money. I don't know anything about Albion as I thought the game was stuck on low pop. Changing game modes is like creating another game launch, as is expansions. WoW has been suffering from shitty expansion launches for a while now, only to fix the BS they had at launch to get players to come back. Out of the games that you guys mentioned, which ones started with the markets already cornered, player already maxed out and OP, and players already billions ahead in game currency? Can you imagine fortnight BR with twinks at launch? Imagine FF14 relaunch with the AH dominates by wealthy players at launch. Imagine GW2 having twinks at launch in BG's... You know that would not have ended well. The players would have revolted, and a crippling amount of players would have rejected the games.
  15. At launch.. did you purposefully miss that part, or accidentally? ill-gotten gains... did you purposefully miss that part, or accidentally? When the game is healthy and going strong, it can afford to win some/lose some. The most important part of any game is the launch, prove me wrong.
  16. No it is not all dogmatic opinion, you know it's not. You, and all the other 'no wipe', are just trying to protect your ill-gotten gains because that is the only thing you have left to argue over. You're not fooling anyone, we can see you. The excuses you come up with are so bad. The current player base can not support the game, or their would be no wipe... Catering to a group that gives your game no chance of success is not good business. You have to cater to a group that gives you a chance. Coming into a game where the twinkerbells have cornered the markets and grossly overpower the new players, at launch, is insane. That does not create a welcome atmosphere... With a wipe, You will have a legit advantage in the game at launch with knowledge. Why is your ill-gotten, massive, advantage more important than the health of the game?
  17. We just made a full circle and we are back to the beginning of wipe or no wipe... /smh This proves the wipe to be valid and that knowledge is advantage enough. Then the next paragraph tries to defend no wipe... Twinking and seal clubbing are a negative to player retention. Doesn't matter what skin you put o it. Difficult for new players because there are no twinks? how? that's such a bizarre thing to say. Boring? I wasn't bored when I started playing, and I avoided all of you. In fact, the reason we got .23 is because all of us builders and small group players were ignoring all of the 'billionaires'.. we were having fun. Them, not so much. You don't think new builders want to be involved in building a new world, so their things can be discovered by later players? All of this is to SAVE THE GAME. The game is DYING and needs to maximize new players... NQ is min/maxing new player retention, just like we min/max our toons. +5 STR doesn't mean much on gloves, but when you put it on all your gear it starts making a noticeable difference and that's why we do it. Maxing out new players is the most important thing right now. Knowledge is advantage enough... you said it in your first paragraph. Can we talk about the systems in the current game that feel like more work than fun? or What gives you confidence that NQ can pull this off, or what gives you lack of confidence?
  18. Why don't you quote one of my statements where I said fair? You just made up an entire story around my name, just so you can jump into the conversation with... whining about work in a game, which is valid. I have never said anything about fair. I wanted us to keep our BP, i'm glad we get to keep our BP. And I have said several times, that knowledge of the game and where to put your TP and what sells the best is advantage enough. This is all about new players and keeping them. No one needs a massive advantage over new players. With our BP and knowledge we have enough. U As for work, that is a valid argument and we should be talking it. That is NQ's fault. I agree with you on that. I made a post on how the mining units are terrible and feel like a work every few days. Whining about the world being unfair, I didn't say that, again you just made that up. This isn't about you paying for territories, this is another example of making a nonsense excuse on why you should keep your massive advantage that you got while the game was broken. There was plenty of opportunities to use exploits to cheat the system into becoming a billionaire. But of course, not you... you did all legit, no alts, no exploits, no cheating, right? Just good old fashion hard work. /smh
  19. The wipe is not to attract new players, how would they even know? The release of the game is to attract new players, the wipe is to keep as many as possible. What your doing is twinking and seal clubbing and now trying to justify it. All the data around twinking and seal clubbing is that it is a bad experience for low level or new players and it makes people not want to play. Correct me if im wrong, but there is no example of twinking and seal clubbing increasing the players of a game, only decreasing. Happened in WoW with twinking in BG's and open world pvp. Happened in world of tanks with tier 2 tanks. WoW and WoT had to make changes to limit or get rid of twinking and seal clubbing for the health of the game. Every open world pvp survival game turns into a seal clubbing game. It's not just pvp based either, it is also economy based when gamers want to monopolize or corner a market with their massive advantage, and it causes players to not want to compete. This is not new, you pretending to not know is also not new. You want to twink and go seal clubbing and your trying to hide it behind nonsense excuses.
  20. No one said this. If I was done with the game I wouldn't be here. Everyone that is here is not done with this game. I came in to see the changes, now I'm waiting to see the final release version. No one said that a wipe will magically make new players. The release of the game will bring in new players, the wipe will keep the most here. What do you think the definition of dying means? You literally defined dying. The dictionary definition is; approaching death. Which we both correctly defined. You get to keep your BP. More importantly, the game... is approaching death. Your time and effort is being traded in for the best chance at survival.
  21. ok, ill see where this is going. I stopped at .23, then came back to see changes and already canceled my sub. I have spent about $90 on the game. And a lot of time. Fun time, until .23 I'm not an alpha tester, or DAC holder. Your move.
  22. His post was meant to call me crazy because I claim that knowledge is advantage enough in a video game. His post was not an opinion piece. We are all whining, but whining over losing your massive unfair advantage is the worst kind. You are also whining, welcome to the conversation.
  23. You are going to pay for 5 accounts after launch? You where the same guy that tried to use 1 account as the reason to be upset. That's $75 a month... on an unfinished game whos odds are not looking good. $75... a month. Anyone can spend their money anyway they want. But when you justify to yourself that $75 a month, to have an advantage in unfinished game, is a good idea... no one should every take your advise on weather the game wipes or doesn't. You are not leaving the game, wipe or no wipe. You are coming in hot, ready or not.
  24. That is not what is happening. This picture your painting is not the current DU. You are missing the part where the game is dying. You are missing the part where this is a video game. You had to graduate from a school before you could play DU? You got hustled, because I just logged in one day and started playing. You are comparing real life fortune, to a fortune you attained in a unfinished, broken, easily exploited game? What kind of acrobatics did your brain have to do to allow you to type that out? Whining about losing everything? you anti-wipers and not whining about losing 'everything', you are whining about losing your massive advantage. All your righteous posts of why not to wipe are just bullshit. They never make any sense. Just like this post. You missed some important things, and your comparisons are so far off, but you did it on purpose to try and add weight to your no-wipe nonsense.
