After almost 4 months of radio silence we finally got a sign of life which is incredible news in my eyes. Perhaps this game isn't as dead as we thought it to be!
I have currently about 3.5 Million credits so this event is not exactly a game changer for me personally but the fact that there is something to motivate people to play is a very welcome change all the same!
I hope that this is just the beginning, that there is more to come. Remember the community events that granted decals or the Twitch drops? Anything like that would go a long way to foster player engagement.
Of course what the game really needs to thrive are a revised tier system, new maps, new ships and new game modes. But to expect that probably would be too much to ask for given the current player count. However, even little additions to the game just like the credit boost are the right answer to players who already sang the game's swan song, myself included .
I'm sure there will be players who argue that it took them too long to tend to the obvious issue of depleted credit accounts due to the high Legendary Battle Bonus costs but honestly, what's the point? We have it now and that's what matters.
The credit boost event may not be enough to save the game but at least it's something and that's very good news ...
All hands: battle stations! This is not a drill.
