  1. As they said in the dev blog Databases are overwhelmed And They are introducing ways to encourage surface mining, auto mining, and asteroids Translation STOP DIGGING.. OUR SERVERS CANT HANDLE IT So its doubtful you will be expected to mine it out first.. the goal is clearly to stop people from digging.. not encourage it And since the goal is to save the database before db costs get unmanageable.... I doubt the economic and player disparity effects will be made a priority This is a hacky attempt to solve a db scaling pr
  2. After the 3 dev blog dump the only thing of import I read there was "We want you to stop mining planets so we plan to add new mechanics so you dont have to dig" And "Our databases are imploding like black holes under their own weight.. we seriously underestimated database load... the sub fees cant cover the costs.. but dont worry we plan to find a solution" It was nice to see a vague and indirect admission that the tech is fundamentally flawed, even if they did basically say "omg.. why are you guys digging so much, our servers cant handle it...
  3. Anyone else read this as "once the game was said to be no-wipe the grinders emerged. We didn't know there would be so many people mining and digging tunnels 3 to 7 hours a day, our database is is so big its collapsing into a black hole" "So we now want to move to surface mining, bot based mining which doesnt dig tunnels and caves, and spawned asteroids which can be despawned and deleted, to remove the mining burden on the database" Everything is about the database ballooning because they didnt have a clue how much gamers can grind Make it easier
  4. Fresh fish... the cycle of hope I was there not long ago.. now the thread of hope is so thin i wont spend any more time grinding until I see something to renew my faith.
  5. I know your pain Gravity, evolution, etc.. I used go into a rage like the hulk when a layperson thinking the scientific word "theory" was as they understood it to mean "hypothesis/assumption/guess" tried to use those "it's just a theory" arguments... My point was just that you require a qualifier for "apples are red" like "some".. without it the exceptions make it semantically false.. in case the argument became "average can be used to reference all three as a group" I if I'm gonna play semantic games, I like preemptively cut off rebuttals hehe.. after years
  6. Yeah.. charge for time usage then see how much worse people scream about lag haha
  7. Actually average most commonly refers to mean, which is the total sample values divided by the sample size, which does not imply 50% are lower than the average You are thinking of the median (ther value at the center of a sample ordered by value) I meant I agree with the message of "dont underestimate the stupidity of the masses, never forget there are alot of very dumb people" You could argue the average is also often used as a broader term to define mean, median and mode as a group of concepts, but then you have not defined what you mean by average and the
  8. I agree.. add pvp Just dont forget we are all novena and there is a central authority controlling our land, money, and market centralization and safe zones too probably. So murder counts should disqualify you from entering the safe zone, accessing the public markets, using your quanta, and disqualify your land claims.. just like real life where the assets and bank accounts of a know serial killer are seized. There should be an exception for kills in org warfare.. so orgs should be allowed to declare war. But murderers who just get to hide in the
  9. Easier would be to slash costs to near nothing (starting with community support, text support, new asset designers and new feature programmers.. sound familiar?) keep it on bare minimum life support and milk the current subscribers and new trickle of new subs over long period to bleed out as much cash to recover whatever lost capital they can Remember, du is a recurring subscription.. and i worked in ecommerce when I was young.. a very significant portion of recurring subscription keep collecting for months and years even after the user stops logging and forgets about their account
  10. I know lua scripts execute client side So when I'm at market, and see script errors from other people scripts and tons of lag... Part of me cant help but wonder... Are people mining bitcoin on my pc with lua the way some websites do with my browser?
  11. I admittedly did use reductio ad absurdum to drive my point home But that was used in an emphasizing way to further drive home the well argued points. Also your reductionist examples are all things I have seen on labels and instructions or would not be surprised to see.. even the chainsaw one.. I will bet you can find instructions for chainsaws that include many warnings about not touching/handling the tooth covered chain unless it properly disabled. I'm not gonna argue with you George Carlin quote, I completely agree with that. And personally I
  12. Oh, I won't be wasting my time or money on this... that's not my point here I'm just saying you cant argue "it's not a scam because you could have discovered the truth through due dilligence and researching third party info" A scam is defined by the actions of the scammer.. false advertising can even negate fine print and toa. The scammee lacking due diligence or falling for an easily avoided scam doesnt in any way make it less of a scam. "Yeah you honor, I robbed the vic at gunpoint in that alley, but it's commonly available knowledge that this
  13. Pretty much all developed nations have laws against false advertising.. the degree to which these are enforced, the way they are interpreted and applied vary from region to region, court to court and judge to judge But generally speaking, in this type of case you would dealing with 2 main arguments The plaintiff would argue false advertising in the promotional materials The defendant would argue the delivered product adherent to the agreed terms and conditions The false advertising claim is NOT undone just by a simple TOA argument The
  14. To be fair, the du website, promotional videos and materials paint a picture of a game which it not only fails to deliver but in all honesty is likely not possible to ever deliver. The scenes of mass close quarters combat and crowded areas running lag free are complete misrepresentation and you cant blame someone for feeling scammed. Saying "you should have done your due diligence" doesnt make the email from that guy claiming to be a Nigerian prince not a scam. Du is still luring in subs based on complete misrepresentation of what the reality of du is.
  15. Watching this all I could think was "this feels familiar... how much you wanna bet the new venture capital investor taking control of DU would see this video as a how-to guide"
