I’m getting tired of this game already now. I’m seeing how unbalanced the game really is, more and more. Something needs to change or people are just going to get fed up as well.
During the period from about 9:00am untill about 1:00am this game becomes almost impossible to play, as there are high level players scouting every single sector, and it is impossible to stay alive while trying to complete quests, and rack up credits for more than 10-20 minutes before dying.
I have six drones at the moment, I have already repaired them once, and they are now at 83% damage again, and they are not even back to level six, this I’m disapointed about, and I’m even thinking about trading my goliath in for a veneance or something.
Even having the biggest ship in the game, with a total of 100,000 shields (between two configs) I still find it almost impossible to get away from other players. When players are hitting 20k per shot with the damn whites, it is frustrating as you know you cannot make it to the nearest portal before you die, and even if you could, you’re worried that you might get the ‘access denied’ thing, and then diie.
I cannot even get to the upper sectors to even attempt missions up there, one because I do not really have the firepower (1.5k per hit) and two because I fear the battle maps, I have had too many death in there just trying to get though. Having a clan in this game is vital, but even with the clan I’m in with 27 members, it is still very inactive for my liking, I’m on this game most of the day. And none of the higher level players from the same company would ever want to join your outfit because ‘your drones are small’ so they instantly think that the player inviting them is weak.
How do I progress in this game.. It frustrates me to know that nothing can be done about this. High level players will always kill low level players, big ship or not.
There is also something else that bothers me, this has something to do with ‘survival’ as good equipment is the key. Okay, 99% of players do not want to fork out shed loads of uridium to buy just one item, instead they are going to buy it on the market, correct. The fact of the matter is, the market is also extremely unbalanced, and unfair. Knowing that there are players out there with 50 million credits, is very daunting when you are in need of good equipment, and you are afraid to loss the little credits you have.
After hearing so many stories of bid losses of around 20-40 million on a single item, I fear the market myself. It took me 3 full mornings (1:00am – 8:00am) to get 13 million, and still I am afraid to use this amount on one good item because I know there is a huge chance, bidding on something like an iris or lf-3 laser, that I will loss the bid. Only the high level players will succeed in the market, because they have firepower, therefore will gain more credits that I do in a single day, and therefore progress over me. So the poor stay poor, while the rich get richer, and more powerful. It is a never ending cycle of failure to be honest, I have seen so many things in this game that I would love to change, and I’m sure thouasands of others would like changed too.
