The problem with this answer, is that Arena’s have been talked about here and on Reddit for months.
Many top streamers have discussed the topic as well.
So while Romez may have on suggested this recently, it’s been months of nothing.
This is just one example of basic information gathering failure.
One simple solution to many of the communication problems that the playerbase has, would have been to make a simple Infographic with each months targeted content. (this has been suggested many times in this thread, forum and reddit)
At least we would than have something to look forward to.
Instead we’re “treated” to super long videos with vague pieces of information.
No real certainty, definitely not enough to keep players interested.
We’re trying to wait patiently but the not so serious players are continuing to leave.
This wouldn’t be the first hugely hyped game to completely fall off a cliff in recent times. Look at Cyberpunk
I know. I stated that in a post above. (Didn’t know faction points were becoming tradeable though?)
Regardless an issue could still be there if the crafting isn’t lowered or there is an increased drop rate. It’s like putting tape on a leak. It’ll do something for the moment, but it’s not the ideal fix and people probably will still be complaining when shards are incredibly over priced.
I’m not sure? I could ask… or have something done in a similar way. A few devs did hop on the forums for an hour Tuesday and yesterday. It’s hard on them because there is so much anger and negativity but they did their best and tried to answer a few questions. Hopefully we can do it agian next week and answer a few more!
Please if you have any information in the future we will really apresiate in Lamian, the less populated server in the cluster. Please leave a comment in this post if you have any news about this issue.
@Shadow_Fox is there a reimbursement for all of us that cant get past our quests for faction level up? i do alot of pvp, invasions, wars, and im capped at 7500 tokens and just losing out on everything until they fix the quest, i cant even prepare to buy chisels or mutator orbs can you find out if something will be given to us?
I think the problem here is, and the team knows it, there are ALOT of suggestions and feedback from the community on ALOT of different platforms from ALOT of different people. And some think that once it’s suggested, that someone does hear it and… its brought instantly to the team and it’s the only thing they focus on and work on until completetion. Sadly, that’s not the case. Many times these ideas get missed or are passed onto the wrong person, or it’s buried under a list of more pressing projects and bug fixes OR it’s just decided against completely. I’m 1000% not saying that is the case with this suggestion, not at all, I actually have NO IDEA what the team is doing with the arena suggestion. All I can say personally is I’ll bring it up with the team and we’ll go from there.
I was recently hired, two weeks ago actually, for this purpose. To better create this network of communication directly to the devs and then back to you guys. We’re just getting started
That does suck to see. But it is the internet, and that’s how some people tend to be. Am I disappointed in some of the actions that AGS has done and their priorities? Yeah I am a little. But I know that doesn’t mean they aren’t trying along with you. Getting angry or mad and treating the people that will be relaying our message like shit, doesn’t do us any favors. But people will still act like children since it’s the internet.
Maybe show CM comments in a seperate tab in the tracker than the dev ones. That way we that like to see your posts, can see them and the ones that are only waiting on a dev reply can filter them only.
Anyways, I don’t like coffee so I’d prefer tea, I’m mostly drinking water with flavor though, there’s this company called Waterdrop that makes really nice sugarfree flavor with vitamins to put in water and I’m obsessed with it. Can get it with and without caffeine. But here in Europe it’s 2:22 AM right now and I should really get some sleep xD I’ll read through the comments tomorrow.
P.S. I appreciate you giving life to these forums. Keep up the good work.
For sure, I think we all agree and we do all understand. The team understands that the anger starts from a love and a passion of a game that they themselves love. I think it will balance out in time, especially with AGS realizing that they need a bigger team and to increase communication.
I put it in a post, but to add to the PvP Arena, make sure they should understand balancing in small scale should be separate from the game itself. Buffing/nerfing certain things while in a PvP Arena would be the best way to separate 50v50 balancing and 5v5.
Just suggesting so they are prepared for it and do t have yet another catastrophe.
It would be impossible to balance weapons to be fair and balanced in both 50 vs 50 and 5v5.
I think that’s a great idea!!! I’ll bring it up to the team Monday and see what we can do.
As for Waterdrop, I was actually just looking into that brand!! But I read some reviews that they take FOREVER to ship… so I wasn’t sure. But maybe I’ll give them a try!
I look forward to seeing what you are capable of pulling off. Thank you for being you, and I commend you for sticking your neck out here in a sea of angry forum users and trying to open these lines of communication. With that said, I’ll check back in a day or two, Thank you for hearing me out as well.
lol i played a random vod from your stream , click at a random time , first thing i hear is
someone in eco asking and bothering you about AGS and new world …now am starting to see a bigger picture here . you got nerves of steel dont you ? XD
The forums made it very apparent that their communication in the forums was garbage. Obviously the message was relayed and they are fixing it. just be happy you see cms and devs commenting on more than one post a week like it used to be. It’s daily and frequent. Be grateful.
