  1. Here's the core issue with the whole thing: If @Noddles runs an org and so do I and want to do a collaboration in form of an alliance or other community effort, we need to find someone that doesn't run an org to run the org for us. I understand that NQ wants to plan for the longer term and bring some order, what is presented can NOT be the solution.
  2. The "one child org" direction will not bear fruit here either. The infinite orgs can be solved by adding actual features that would naturally limit that. For example, like a cost and an economy that supports it. I don't really understand that. If you want to have a restriction on how many orgs you can have as a superlegate, then please not 1... tied to the account. That is not conducive to the community after seeing this change. You don't build a community feeling that way if you don't want to bring people together. In retrospect, I'm glad I'm not running an org and putting extra
  3. Imagine having a lifetime sub and you have to pay for an alt because you want a community org.
  4. Talking about risk vs. reward in a safe zone is somehow... Wrong? Especially when the mission list has the districts as destinations.
  5. I also have this sidebar on all threads that have 3 pages and more.
  6. That's what I love about Ashes of Creation: The guy finances his own mmorpg, but has never worked on one himself. Instead, he has filled key positions with industry vets who tell him what is feasible in his mind. And the best part: He listens. And communicate with transparency. Hrafnkell Oskarsson was hired as many gaming news sites mentioned that for DU: https://www.pcgamesn.com/dual-universe/dual-universe-recruits-eve-online-designer Just check his public linkedin profile and look for how long the guy worked for NQ. Now we have a guy called Toni who I
  7. The biggest problem I have with the whole thing is that it has a jobs section on https://www.dualuniverse.game/, which in turn links to this page: https://www.welcometothejungle.com/en/companies/novaquark I wouldn't call 94 employees a small indie studio tbh. Unless the numbers don't add up. And if they're not right, why not?
  8. The rat tail goes on longer than the generalisation, as I am not a big fan of it. However, I can't elaborate on one point because I am under ATV NDA. But the point is this - if you don't get confirmation in your organisation (I'm talking about the big orgs here), on the forum, meme server, or anywhere else, and you stand alone with a handful of people, then you have the community against you - because the people who don't comment on it - but read it anyway - agree with the majority with their silence.
  9. Originally, early access should have started last November / December. Since all tools and engines are developed in-house, I have no doubt that they know what they are doing. They are very down to earth, have always communicated excellently. As I am in closed alpha, I have also always been pleased to be able to show things as they are in the game, as there was no NDA. I expect there will be a big rush in June. I'll give a real conclusion after 2 weeks. But since they don't overhype things like No Man Sky, I see no reason for it to be bad. Everything they've shown in v
  10. NQ themselves decided to turn away from the vision 2 years ago when they said they would not release AvA at launch - an argument that for an unknown number of people was the reason why they invested money in the kickstarter campaign and have enabled investors and other players to become aware of the game. The community laughed at the people who remarked that something was wrong and this is an issue. Instead, the community said that everything was fine and there was no need to get upset. Instead, you should drink your Kool Aid and put on your rose-coloured glasses. But here's the pl
  11. To be fair, even Space Engineers has PvE with Wolves, Spiders and Pirate Ships.
  12. For 20 euros you can buy a subscription package for 3 months. Whether you want to do it or not is up to you. Neither rose-coloured glasses nor arguments based on facts can take this decision away from you. If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to ask.
  13. The next one who shoots himself in the knee and considers valid arguments as crying. Too bad, I would have read through your arguments. Not like this. Skip!
  14. Just to put the facts on the table for a moment: We got 600k income from players and about 3 million from investors. In the end, a few years ago, it was 20 million. So I don't understand what that has to do with ks.
