It doesn’t matter whether or not players are making multiple designs of every ship they research. The point is that they’re a player. So what if the hulls are not being built?
It’s not that the hulls aren’t being built but why not and the results of them not being built that matters.
Unlike you, I or anyone that has played since server open, a new player coming into the game just doesn’t have to build anything or solve any thing and as a result the game is less engaging for them. Literally, the one and only challenge for new players is patience, whereas we all had puzzles to solve just to get past i30.
The entire 1990+ generation of kids get bored extremely easily!
It’s always a mistake to blame the customer rather than the product for them not ‘buying’ it.
Making another layer of higher ships doesn’t necessarily tell them that it’s unobtainable. To them, it’s just another challenge.
If they’re not willing to spend the time as it is then adding even more time is an enticing challenge for them how exactly?
The idea is add more things to do to keep new players busy, new reasons to actually build those sub i30 hulls, new instances, new “challenges” perhaps? Things that wouldn’t have any effect on existing players.
All games come to a point where there are so few people left it becomes a dead game.
And yet there are games that go on longer than others because when they add content there’s something in it for every one, big and small.
I suggest you get out there and do some recruitment instead of crying about the updates not getting new players.
Neither you or IGG is paying me enough to advertise for them and what would I tell someone to get them to play? “If you work really hard you will still never catch the top players”,“If you spend an insane amount of time and money…”, “It’s got a friendly, growing and constructive community”…Ok, that last part made me laugh considering the circumstances.
Wouldn’t it just be better to be able to say “there’s tons of stuff to do no matter what level you are”…wouldn’t it?
Also, ever taken a psychology course? The personality of the gamer is a massive factor
It’s always a mistake to blame the customer rather than the product…The product can be shaped to suit the customer.
A kid that comes into a game looking for instant gratification isn’t going to find it here
So what’s wrong with that? I’m not saying that anyone has to climb the ladder more rapidly but that there be more things to do while you’re waiting for things to get done building. Keep them busy long enough and more will get hooked on it.
BP demand could be short term, or it could be long term, we can’t really tell at this point
Unless drop rates are changed, which is unlikely because it’d put more negative pressure on the low end of the game, it’s easy enough to add up total bps needed per person and estimate how long before that demand is met and subtracted from the total demand on the server.
Buying those endgame ships is only a temporary placeholder – until I can build them myself, and I can assure you with a high degree of certainty that most long term players do the same.
This was never in doubt but I do appreciate how you go to such lengths to tell me this when I’ve been playing just as long as you have.
Adding content for bottom end players becomes unfair
How so? it wouldn’t necessarily effect game play in any way and new players can already “start” with post i30 ships, an advantage none of us had.
If you want to change a game, make one yourself.
If only you knew how funny that was.
All IGG cares about is money, so stop whining.
If IGG really cared about the money they’d be trying harder to expand the paying user base, trying to get more people hooked on the game, rather than depend on the few high rollers.
Oh and throwing around ad hominem accusations of “whining” towards anyone that offers constructive criticism isn’t just a poor strategy for debate but a poor strategy for life.
If you’re going to emphasize something, use bold/italicize/underline/caps; so much easier for the rest of us to understand the tone.
This coming from the guy too lazy to format?
They’re playing, and contributing to the economy.
And you don’t see the inherent contradiction in this when you’ve previously agreed that the player base is diminishing?
Yes, I admit the player base is diminishing, as it does in almost all games.
Oh wait, there it is on the very next line…
No, it has nothing to do with how the game is updated.
So you’re saying that the features of the product have nothing to do with whether or not it’s a desirable product?
It has to do more with the players of this generation.
Blaming the customer…again?
This generation isn’t different from the last 100 generations, Evolution just doesn’t work that fast. I don’t remember off hand who wrote it but there is a passage I read once from one of the greek philosophers, that was basically a diatribe about how kids “now days” with their hairstyles and clothes, no respect for their elders, can’t keep their minds on anything and were afraid of hard work…sound familar?
I read “None of that ever happens” with the image of you rolling your eyes – sarcastic tone.
The word you’re actually looking for is this…
I thought you meant you were a level ahead in the game, as in you thought you were better than me.
No, I was just answering the statement you made concerning research and the insinuation that my position was based upon not having done any research myself with the best “evidence” that the game provides that couldn’t be “bought” or “gifted”
Lowering prices just means that the WWs spend on something else – probably less in total, since they want the best of the best and not the worst of the best.
Lowering mp cost wouldn’t change what the maximum is and that’s what the WWs are buying…The extra mp, buy one get one free type events disprove your theory on it’s face.
Please, take your problem and hide it away before you make a bigger fool of yourself.
You really think that after 50 years I’d still be worried about looking foolish?
I am starting to wonder why your panties are getting into such a bunch thought. What are you worried about?
Please note that no matter what the players actually suggest, IGG will likely never implement.
Perhaps not but there is no harm done in the discussion is there or do you just habitually fight about every little thing someone says on the internet?
