Archaegeo Posted October 7, 2022 Share Posted October 7, 2022 UPDATE Given a conversation with NQ this weekend and expected rule clarifications next week (not sure which way, just clarified rules) I plan to continue playing for the moment. This might end up being like when you plan to quit a job, you are offered some so you stay, and you end up quitting 6 months later, but we will see. I honestly do want DU to work out, I didnt put 2 years of coding into it because I want it to fail. When you have a game with GM enforced rules, they must be clear and they must be enforced, especially in PvE areas where all other players have no recourse. If we had territory warfare and could have dealt with this on our own, it would be a totally separate situation. Anyway, ArchHUD will be maintained and continue to be improved for now (as much as I was ever able to improve it). It is with some amount of deep regret that I say goodbye to DU. I have tried to support the game, beyond ArchHUD, but NQ's attitude to blatant griefing is just too much. This is not how you help a game grow. We all know there are lots of issues, but I was hoping that the wipe and release would be a nice fresh start. I want to thank everyone who has supported ArchHUD (and ButtonHud before that) and who have provided support and kind words over the 2 years. I hated the fact we have T1 bots buying ore injecting unlimited quanta into the economy (why should coal be worth anything if no player willing to pay for it). I hated there are bots selling elements (takes way player market niche setting ceiling prices) I hated the fact that there is no decay of elements (life count is bugged, nothing on my ship goes below 2 lives left, and of course static elements never run out). I hated that we didnt get Territory Warfare (original promise) I hated that their solution to pvp problems was a stupid floor max speed no matter mass of ship. (And floor burn speed no matter size of ship). I was willing to overlook it, and hope they would make the game better, but .... I cannot continue supporting a game where the dev's ignore blatant griefing and refuse to enforce their own rules. (see below post). So I am done. I wish you all well, and will see you around the pond. So long, and thanks for all the fish. Archaegeo (Regarding ArchHUD - I will leave it up for the time being. I will not be providing support for it though going forward. There are many who will, and someone might pick up the mantel). < > Messaline, Owl_Superb, ch3w8a and 15 others 18 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
