"we feel pretty comfortable about the progression speed now and would love to hear your thoughts!"
you asked for it
progression speed is a freaking joke! it's slower, not faster. if this game awarded the players ALL, i repeat ALL the points they are suppose to get it might be acceptable, but this is not even close. you guys nerf bated the progression speed bad after 1.9.1 and now everyone is slowed to a crawl your happy.
lets start with command ship kills, i cannot count how many times i've done over 50% of the damage to kill that thing and been given zero, kill assists with stasis ammo, zero, general kill assists, zero, final blows, zero, do 75% of total damage to anything and get ZERO. the list goes on and on and your comfortable? the only healers left are complete die-hards, now it's match after match of healer-less teams since you took away their healing xp rewards... and your comfortable?
im not actually sure why im even bothering to type this, i know these words are falling on deaf ears. you guys running this game want people to progress so slowly, everyone will quit, and there will be 10 people left willing to put up with it before you "might" double check yourselves and what your doing.
i might as well mention the horrific lag i have been getting post 1.9.1. it's so bad now i cannot kill assault ships or fighters in onslaught mode at point blank range. vets, are permanent god mod, what i'm seeing is about 3 seconds behind whats happening, i have to aim about 4 inches in front of what ever i'm shooting at to maybe land a hit. when i ram people i have to aim where the ship is going to be, aim for empty air, not where it actually is. 1.9.0 almost no lag problems, 1.9.1 over half my matches are extremely laggy. thank god there is no punishment for leaving matches. i actually get more points if i ditch the laggy match early to find one with a good ping rate, even if it's 2 or 3 attempts.
battle bonus? win, it's on cool down, loose it's on cool down? i don't recall seeing anything in patch notes about having to buy BB after every match no matter what. how about contracts? do these actually award anything? i don't think they do lol. when i complete 1 nothing changes haha
so your comfortable. im comfortable also. i didn't spend the money to create fund and maintain this game so i sleep easy at night, and this also means my opinion is worthless. dreadnought is in a interesting place having no real other substitute on the market right now, people like me are willing to tolerate a lot more then usual. this will not be true 6 months from now.
you wont see me post some rant about why i'm leaving, i'll just be gone, like a lot of other people are already gone without telling you why. people you never new played dreadnought, hated it and left the first day. i see the front page of these forums and they still have my posts from WEEKS ago, no new comments, not being pushed to the bottom by new topics... just sitting there, lifeless, like the player population is now, lifeless, keep up the good work! glad to hear the dev team is comfortable, if i were running things, i would never have to explain anything like sixfot and greybox do, changes would just make sense to people playing the game.
