  1. Thanks for this invitation Burble. I might come back to it because I by my self are interested in creating content. The problem with that is to generate the resources for it has become a problem. For the size of builds I do the login bonus is by far not enaugh. I´m not interested in mining a hour per day. Ingame I set up scanners and logistics to aquire t3+ ores. Because with them I could grind what I need to build in 20 minutes. This is all gone now since the market broke. My assets have become worthless at this point. I swapped to skill me towards handling to make a new income methode, just to figure out that everyone did the same and there is nothing more to upgrade. All of this together with the fact of the decreased player number and overall activity is simply frustrating. I understand your argumentation and you are right that just crying and yelling wont help. This is the reason why I write the posts. To encourage the discussion. It is not meant to blame or to demonize. But just to be silent as you mentioned does not solve the problem. Still, my major point is that there was no need for the patch before there are no other ways implementet to generate money, like missions. NQ shut down the game activity without offering alternatives. To do this in christmas times and while in a pandemic was a big failure. People left. The game suffered. The reason that I´m still here is simply because I hope the best for the game. But NQ should talk and listen to the players. Now more than ever. Because without us this universe does not live.
  2. Thank you for the response. My intention was to share my feelings. I invested in this game because I love to create and be around others who create. This was inhibit by the last patch. I can not live with the fact that now the only way of expansion, and expansion is the base of a builder game who claims that player shape this universe, is to grind the boring and scanner wise frustrating mining game. What means the only other way to generate money for shematics is to offer services to player who do the boring mining game. I don´t wan´t to profit from the frustration and mind numbing activitys from my fellow players. I play a game for joy. Not for labor. And I want the same for everyone. We should not obey to a system that forces us into heavy grind. Because we finance this game. We fill it with life and reason. For that we should get treated right and be heard. Our wishes should matter. I demand democracy. Since some post questioned my health situation: it is true. I feel isolated and mentaly fragile. But I guess thats true for a lot of peeps atm. Thats why this game was so important to me. It gave me a relief, brought me together with peeps to play with, to achiev something and over all to have fun. It kept me sane. The patch hit me hard in this sense. Because it reduced the overall activity and joy. Thats why I say I want to share my feelings. Because it struck my heart rather than my mind.
  3. I think my argumentation displays that I´m not silly, my engagement in a online game that I´m not a extrovert and I´m pretty sure that I´m not running from my self. Further I do not blame Nova Quark, I just question the latest decisions and the effect they had on the game and the player community. What I cant understand is why a crowdfunded game were player, including myself, investet as much or more than a tripple A titel increases the grind factor dramaticly and pushes away player who were already engaged in the game. I was playing with people who I never saw again after the patch. Thats more than sad in times were the world is already stressed out.
  4. Hello, as things have developed since the last patches, the game seems dead. A lot of Player left and the activity has decreased. For a MMO this is as good as a buriel. What makes me angry is just the fact that the real world is in a pandemic Situation were we are forced to be at home and have massive decreased social contacts. Something like a online game is one of the few things left to stay in touch with fellow humans. Something that keeps you sane and busy. As a Developer who is offering a social plattform, the latest actions of Nova Quark are more than questionable. With the last patches the little activitys that the game had to offer were killed. There is not much to do anymore, but further a lot of frustration was induced in the player community. Instead of comforting the player, Nova Quark just slapt them in the face. Maybe the changes are needed for the game, but there was no reason to do this before the real world is stable again. They took one of the few things away people had left to do and I just cant figure out why. Of course those are subjective arguments. It is just how I feel about it and I want to share those feelings.
  5. Hello, I was just wondering what is happening. The last patches seem to kill all the little content the game has to offer. The Mining gameplay is boring and the crap scanner drives you crazy. But at least with t3+ ores it paid well for the invested time. Since the patch no one buys t3+ ores anymore. Cause no one can effort the factory gameplay anymore. This has shut down most of the trading and transportation gameplay. Element destruction is a nightmare when it comes to expensive elements. What means even the fly for fun gameplay is gone. What is left is the building gameplay. But with which money? And why? It seems the only thing to generate substential amounts of money is to mine and sell t1 ores to bots. In a subscription model mmo. For me the reason to play this game was to create and hang around the creations of others. For this the grind has to be reasonable.

  7. The point is mining sux. But its the fkn basic of generating resources to build. U can buy ore? With what money? Where does the Money come from? There are no missions or other sources of money in the game. If u trade or offering services u get the money from other players. What means in the end u have two options. Doing boring mining or robbing others. What a scammer fest! It is just sad how New Players getting exploitet by the shidty ore prices. But in the end thats better than spending hours running through tunnels with a crap scanner and waiting for a circle to grow just to do a click afterwards. And repeat. For hours. Some may like this torture. Nothing wrong with that. But this cant be the base of the game. In the end only the hardcore player will stay and thats not the idea of a mmo. The solution is simple. Make mining cool! Give us explosives or other cool gadjets to make it fun to do. Increasae the skills. Since even with lvl 4 of all related skills things get not better. Fix the scanner! Give it a option to pinpoint the ore node position with a 5 minute scanning delay. Whatever, but do something! Mining bots are ok as well. There is no difference in spending a hour to mine or waiting 5 hours to get the same amount by a mining unit. Thats all just a question of balancing. But by all means, stop forcing player to do this boring bullshidt. It only creates the deep wish to smash ur hardware.
  8. Did you guys realize that this is a sandbox? It has a economy and skill system like eve, but the goals are totaly different. Dual Univere is about creating stuff. Building Worlds. While eve is simply about domination. So balancing and slow progress in eve is much more important, since there is nothing else than the "game of numbers and ranks" While in Dual Universe the economy and progression is just the foundation of the creative experience. Your Skills and Resources are the tools to build your world. Why should this essential part be locked with massive time gates or grind? If you have fun on waiting for something or doing the same thing over and over to make a tiny progress. Well, play eve. But if you want a blast of a Sandbox-Spacegame Dual Universe is the thing. Because it does NOT make you wait for the good stuff forever. Because it does NOT force you to invest hours of grind. Because you do NOT need multiple accounts and characters. All this eve madness does not exist and thats great. There is no need for Dual to be more hardcore. This game is not about competition in the first place. Its about creation.
