  1. In my opinion the update is a meh. How much % of the playerbase will actually care for this mechanic ? I'd much rather see Asteroids, PVP performance improvement to begin with.
  2. I really hope we get asteroid fieldS around space that all players can mine in the PVP zone. It will be way riskier than regular mining, but hopefully will have a high reward as well. If they roll out something like the previous events, it'd be so disappointing.
  3. I don't mind paying for Sub. Considering the infrastructure they need to make the game run + development costs for new content, imo a subscription based model is the only viable way.
  4. Welcome and enjoy. Currently the game is pretty fun (imo) if you like mining and building/scripting, but there is a lot more to come hopefully this year, such as territory warfare and asteroid mining. If you need any help, there are a lot of good folks on Discord. See you in game
  5. You'd be surprised how many of the people commenting every single thread in this forum are not playing DU or have played less than 50 hours... I feel the actual people who login to play every day stay out/are not interested in all this BS going on here.
  6. Completely agree with you. NQ are developing a type of game that has never been done before. Obviously it comes with a ton of risks and unknowns. While better communication and faster development would be great, it's quite normal to face delays or change certain features. Let's hope NQ will have enough money and motivation for the next few years to push the game forward.
  7. I suggest you to forward your idea here - https://upvote.dualuniverse.game/ , even though I don't think it will be something they can consider in the next few years ?
  8. I had the same issue, however restarting my PC actually fixed it. I am not sure what is the case, however I suggest you raise a ticket to NQ immediately. They will ask you to submit some game and system data before they can make the check. Probably it will take a while for them to give you a full solution but at least I got a pretty fast initial response. Let me know if you find a solution, I also want to know what to do if it happens again.
  9. I believe I made myself clear on what I consider toxic and to clarify, it's not asking questions about the state of the game. At the end of the day, each of us in entitled to our own opinion, but playing victim in saying I am trying to shut you up or ignore some valid points that are raised is laughable.
  10. The game runs okay for me, at least to a degree that I am happy with. Sharing your feedback and opinion is one thing, spamming it to others is another. Everyone should be welcome to share their experience in a proper and constructive manner, positive or negative. I don't think that anyone ever said the game is feature complete and in a good state, but this doesn't mean it's not fun to play for some people. There is nothing to argue about here, it's a fact. The game is fun for plenty of people and a lot of the players did leave. But the current state of the forums in my opinion is off-putting to anyone interested in the game. Maybe with a good reason for some people, but definitely not for all.
  11. For you it might have low FPS, for someone else might run great. Some people might have an awesome time while playing, others might hate the game, the important thing is that everyone remains civil and not enforce their opinion on others. So to answer your question - Yes, for me this is the pinnacle of toxicity.
  12. It's easy to classify people as 'white knight' if they have something positive to say about the game, likewise for 'shitposters' as I put it, if they have some criticism for the game, but at the same time, not calling out people who make comments in the line of 'This game sucks because I get 3 FPS' or 'There are 30 people left playing this game, you shouldn't play' is just hurting this community and the overall perception of this game for new players [IMO Of course]. While I 100% agree things could be better and NQ should be held accountable for their shortcomings, toxicity (in both spectrums) should not be tolerated in any community.
  13. Honestly, it will be so sad if this game dies. There is really no other game like this at the moment, even though there are many many features to be developed, DU brings a lot of unique game-play. Frankly, just the effort from NQ to try something like this is commendable. Even with the current state of the game, I can't see myself to stop playing. If DU makes it 3-4 years into the future, I truly believe it will have a thriving community for many years. Yeah, unfortunately there are a lot of people in this forum who just love shit posting, rather than giving actual feedback.
  14. Maybe some people can share their own feedback but from what I've heard, the game does not run very well on AMD CPUs right now as single core performance + clock speed seems to matter more than the number of cores. I believe this is the biggest bottleneck in your system right now. I have slower network speed and don't have any issues, even after 0.24, which is apparently causing high network load for some people. Obviously it's not worth it to upgrade your PC for this game only. Depending on where you live it might be viable to use some cloud gaming service such as Shadow PC (I am not 100% sure if the game can run through Shadow PC at the moment though) Unfortunately, these are all the suggestions I can give. It's important also to note that the game is being actively developed (for now) and performance should improve over time. I think it's worth it at least to have a character that has a lot of queued up talents for training, if you decide to play in the future.
  15. Hey, so there are good and not so good news. Serverwise, NQ did make a lot of improvements in terms of scaling. You can expect way fewer 'Pending Operation' errors while mining/building, however PVP is still not as fluent as it could be, even though it shows some improvement since Beta started. FPS performance around markets/crowded areas is still bad, especially if your machine is running something below Intel 10th gen i5/i7 CPU / lower than 16 GB of RAM. NQ did make some improvements to that, like making more landing areas, splitting the markets from the starting location, but there are a lot of abandoned constructs near the markets, which dramatically slows the performance. From what NQ shared, they are working on some solution to clear abandoned building/ships but we are yet to hear more details on that. If you are struggling with FPS, there are a few guides on what you can do to improve your performance. You can check out some details here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fgUJGceVPnk&ab_channel=ZenithGamingCompany Personally, I am running an overclocked intel i9 9900k with 32GB of RAM and GTX 2080 and the game runs quite well for me, even around markets. If you haven't subscribed for Beta and are still considering, I suggest to list your PC specs in the forums to check if someone can give you their feedback on what performance you can expect.
  16. Interesting to see you spam every single tread on the forums and not have DU installed ?. Sums up the 'vets trying to save the game' toxic spamming pretty well.
  17. I backed the game from the start, played in the majority of the Alpha tests, that's not the point. They did raise 20+ Million, however for a 50+ people studio, this won't last you long at all. If they had enough money, they would keep the game in Alpha, until there were more features developed and the server stability was better, but I digress. The whole point of my argument is that there is no benefit of ranting how the game is bad/dead, when it has been said many times before, this just breeds toxicity. I said that everyone is free to speak their mind, it's just sad to see how the community has degraded over time. Also, it's obvious that NQ want more people to keep playing the game, even if they don't have an active sub right now, since the player base is smaller than ever. It's a difficult situation to handle but I guess that's another topic.
  18. Yes mate, we've heard this story on a thousand different posts already. Most of us have invested a lot of time in this game, so what ? If you want this game to progress, spamming the same thing a million times will not change something, if the devs have enough money, the game will progress, simple as that. If you post shit on the forums and all new players see your crying, do you expect they will want to try the game out? I doubt it. Of course, it's everyone choice to do whatever they want. If you feel satisfaction of posting unnecessary comments that don't bring any value, go ahead and keep turning potential new players away. At the end of the day, our feedback would contribute only a small fraction for the game development. If NQ don't have money to make new features, all the best, most constructive feedback/ideas will not save them.
  19. Honestly, this community was great in alpha, a lot of people with good and constructive criticism. After beta, it became too toxic, unfortunately due to 10 people spamming all the threads in the forums and crying about how DU sucks in their opinion and repeating the same thing over and over. Like you said, this is extremely bad for new players who are interested in the game. All the people spamming the forums just get their dose of dopamine when someone likes their post/comment, since they don't have anything better to do in their life. It's saddening to see an awesome game fail due to the toxicity of a small number of nolifers, but at the end of the day, it is what it is. If you really support the game and want it to succeed, play it, bring some friends with you, have a nice time, don't spam the forums with unnecessary negativity, like 80% of the people here. I will keep playing the game and pay my 2 subs every month to support the development as much as I can. At this point, this is all we can do if we want a good future for DU. Also, to all the people crying in this forum how the game sucks, I feel sorry that you need to have some random dude agree with you on a forum to have meaning in your life.
  20. To be honest the idea was not to make some in-depth analysis, rather to see the general feelings of a part of the player base. I think most of us are aware by now that the devs don't really take this kind of post seriously so it doesn't really matter anyway.
  21. Even though I will keep playing, I kind of agree with you, the only way to make money now is to mine, if you are not a professional Builder or maybe scripter, there is no other way to make money
