The game is on life support. Somehow launching it into the mainstream would require a pretty big overhual and significant marketing. If I was the devs, I would be focusing on keeping existing players interested.

What does that mean? We need a big balance overhaul that significantly changes the meta. If that happenened, you know I would be playing every night.

This is nice but I personally was really looking for some balance changes to shake up the meta >.>

It makes me mad because at its core this game is so AWESOME!

To see it essentialy ignored by the devs for so long is infuriating.

A broad sweep of balance changes would really help warp the game in the right direction, we need a huge shake up in the meta. Something big.

In the current state, the game is very stale. Maybe by the "metrics" its balanced, but players need a change!

Scramble effect is still aburdly powerful

Assistive modules give barely any score (energy missile, rupture beam, etc)

Clan groups still roam quick match annhilating the other team

Half the moduels in the game are useless or bugged

Last big change was nerfing adrenaline shot which took far to long

Little variation between ship manufacturers

Hero ships and cosmetic items priced for whales

Tier change (now T4 ships only in legendary vs T5 ships) makes leveling ships a painful slog

Is anyone really suprised that this game is dying? It annoys me becuase I know everyone here can see the games potential, but the execution has just been so poor.

If you can't do it justice, fine. But atleast sell the IP to another studio, I know that someone else could really take this to the proper level.

Also Yager's new game The Cycle is far to late and is going to miss the battle royale bandwagon.

Can anyone eccho me on this?

They had their chance to make this game great some time ago, even before the steam launch. That time has passed, games come and go.

I could go on and on about the reasons why, but i've already done that on numerous forums over the last 2 years or so, and barely anything has been changed in that time, so.

Sad to see that this game never really hit its stride, but I'm looking forward to other similar titles.

I thought to myself a few minutes ago "ya know Virtual, I know the last time you tried to play last week the servers were having issues and you lost your legendary battle bonus because of it, and the week before that you only got to play one match because the que times were 15min+, but this can't happen all the time, you should really give it a go tonight!"

What a joke.

Join game, get infinite loading screen, lost my 30 minute cooldown legendary battle bonus, totally turned me off of playing for the whole night.

Really? This is the state that this game is in?

Just gonna tell you the same thing I told you on reddit

Weekend night, Legendary que current sitting over 5 minutes, even though T4 is now in legendary.

I'm not gonna go play T3 ships, sorry.

It's over boys, pack it up.

There is leway given to moderators to judge whether or not a post desrves locking, but it my opinion as someone who has been a moderator of other forums, that these "leways" are not being given their due diligence.

Locking in GD should be reserved for necros and egregious violations of forum rules. In all other cases the post should be moved to the appropriate seciton. This is an important decision to make as moderator decisions are final. I personally was just enjoying reading a discussion in a topic, only for it to be locked. I only complain as this is not the first time such a lock has happened.

It is imperative to encourage discussion in any form as long as it is civil and constructive. Users do not want to have to worry about their post/reply being locked because they have a dissenting opinion.

I would like to add, that this post does not violate any of the forum rules as posted in the announcements section. This is meant to be a discussion about the state of moderation on these forums, which, to my knowlege and opinon is an important part of any community and deserves rapport as much as any other issue.

If this thread becomes locked, I fear for the future of our game.
