They changed the UI when they did a major update and Steam launch. Tech trees can be accessed through either going to the Ships section, or going into Play and selecting manage fleet.

Yes, it is good to see a road map for once and shows the game isnt dead. Plus the return of events is really nice. And counting the bots for contracts is going to be a major boost for those.


I wasnt playing with the old model progression so I cant really say if that would be better. I do think they need to lower the T5 costs some though.


The game definitely needs more PvE so its nice they are working to implement that. It is also good to know they are listening to players and keel working on balancing.


I'd still like to see engine colors added to the market. Players have asked for that and it would be another source of income.

Agreed. If there is such a small gap people wont want to work for it, especially for how much T5 stuff costs. They may be better off just making another level for T5 only, although I doubt it would happen.

From personal experience, once you get within range of the Tesla turret it it definitely a better option. I want to say within a certain range it intensifies, but its been a while since i used it.

So I think player retention falls to a few things:


1) Progression: The progression in this game is way to quick to tier 4, where the true meat of the game lies. This needs to be lengthened and stretched out so as not to suddenly hit the progression wall that is tier 4/5. This can be done in an artificial way (to me) in that you just increase resource requirements as tiers increase (more than they are now). You could also do what most tier-based PvP games do and have 10 teirs instead of 5; this I think is the best route, but the development resources certainly are not there.



I understand your point but given the gripes about progression at T4 and T5 Im not sure lenghtening T3 or any of them will do more than drive away new players. Some feel at T4 they hit a wall with how long it takes and wont even try T5 (given the game is FtP it makes it easier to just abandon it since no money has been invested).


MM has been an issue since day 1 it seems. squads have such an advantage from communication and in my playing time Ive noticed a lot of solos will just ignore any alerts you may give and do their own thing. nothing you can do about that though.

Hmmm as i see it SkyRaider is more active in Forum, than in the game xD
So why acting up? You should be farmed like Reclaimer is beeing farmed, for his ignorance^^
Btw i don't care if u try to insult me, ur just a bad random. And yes, i'm not a nice person, i know that :p


Reclaimer just hates corvettes and trying to mask it with some stupid reasons. Most players are kinda fine and try to adapt, but there are always some triggered whiners, who can't or won't be able to adapt to certain playstyles. Some of them lack ofc common sense.



Well I’m on here for two reasons. First to discuss issues with the game with others. Second is for the comic relief you provide.


You probably don't understand how you look. You didn’t comprehend the point of the original post, started whining about other players (while calling them whiners) and you keep referring to people as a “bad random.” I mean really? “Bad random.” This actually processes in your mind as insulting and irritating? Haha. It’s made me chuckle every time (I'm picturing a twelve year trying to be mean and unable to understand he isn't). We probably shouldn’t expand on how you believe yourself qualified to judge players or that anyone even cares what you think… I don't care if you insult me and so far you're failing horribly at it (snickers at Bad Random again).


Wait a second: you’re a random person on the internet who admitted they aren’t nice. So, I guess that would make you a “Bad Random!” Hahaha. Irony is always great for a laugh and you are providing it in quantities.


So go ahead little troll, keep on “trolling” (you can’t even do that right…), and keep making me laugh. Keep posting things that make you look sad and laughable.


Oh, one more time for the heck of it: bad random!

wouldnt the fact playerbase not going up show an issue?

well, i stand corrected on the definition, i thought it was a major reduction that basically made it useless.


i dont really squad. the few people i did play with stopped playing the game.

I consider a nerf to make it useless. taking a few k of damage off to me doesnt nerf it, it just makes it less powerful. but i guess we'll just agree to disagree on that.

Read what Ortis, Fluffy and Dragon wrote. If u still can't understand it, you most likely never will.
Just an advice: Try this so called op corvette build plz. Rn there are not even two hands full of people who can play it real good. The rest is just feeding like crazy.



This really says it all to me. The OP has raised the issue that the newer player experience and perception is that the game has issues and they are treated poorly, this is why he believes they are leaving instead of staying. He makes a point of something (Corvettes and warp) that he believes might be an issue contributing to this.


The rest of you all just dog pile on him about how covettes are NOT the problem, they are fine, give the implication that he is a bad player because he knows not of what he speaks and by implied extension that there is obviously no newer player issue because corvettes are just fine!


So why ARE the newer players not staying? Or are the servers being empty just a lie?


Instead of engaging the underlying issue the OP has raised you attack and belittle him from your pedistals of m@d 1337 5killz and think that his refutes his underlying point.


And someone told me that the toxic element here had gone now. I call BS.
God this is just sad.



Pretty much. Morbeus had the "git gud" attitude that, from a players side that has kept people from playing. add in thay his argument is basically "youre not good" (and he wont answer me on my platform and screen name, so he has no actual no of me as a player) it actually not sad, its pathetic.
