Begin Rant

came back to see if 2.0 had morphed into an awesome game.  8/10.  could be better, but what's here is worth playing and even throwing money at--cyprus is making an honest effort to dev this into an awsum thing, but not aggressively enough IMHO.

even when other MMO games were near-deth, you could occasionally find a packed server.  i'd think clans could do this, but not one i've applied to in the clans search page have responded.  "join our clan!"  Apply.  3-day silence.  pffft. (sound of new player Moving On) 

last night i played from 1900 EDT to nearly 0200.  i estimate i played about 27 unique pilots, with 3 or less on most teams. 

btw:  removing the online player count notification last year was a Bad Idea: "We don't want you to know we're dying."  i've posted in forums where "Is XXX Dying?" got you Warning points, or a Temp-Bar.  well, are you?

End Rant.

sorry.  I've had this cooking since January--at least i didn't bail out midway in my first match like i did 5 years ago (see what i did there).  :D

Hmm...maybe this and many other posts like it is why the counter was removed.  This game will be dead when the server are shut down; until then I'll continue to play and enjoy it.  Also, why are you posting this in the "Newcomers" section?  Should be more of an "off-topic", unless your trying to create more drama and demotivate :sceptic:.   If you're not having fun...there are many other games to play.

Actually, Since joining JG52, I have seen an active, fun clan..that plays a range of games, I actually really enjoy 2.0 , and personally know of several players that have joined or re-joined.

 

We like to win , but FUN is #1.

 

If players have a positive /winning attitude, and willing to "flight up" at times, is really all we ask.

300 battles is pretty much newcomer.
 

Active player base estimated at <5000 people. (slightly lower than the 1.7 up population)


Be sure to check your logic privileges before posting on the forum.

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

Really? 

How?

 

Those of us with over 30,000 battles before they changed to attract new players dont agree.

They only replaced us vets with noobs for more cash.

They will do the same with you.

That's too bad. The revolving door is constantly moving and you don't see them for long.  When you see them stick around, then people can argue the game is growing, until then, it is just people passing by.

Im no one to argue any point, but prior 2.0...I wouldn't touch this game with a 50 ft pole... but I do give the players that "stuck it out" credit.

 

Bottom line WG knew , that some changes we necessary I suppose?  but noobs with cash like me are maybe helping this game?.... so "Adapt/overcome/survive" .....or play a different game maybe?

I am on the side of the fence these two wonderful folks are on. I keep seeing new faces daily, of course there are familiar ones - Looking at you BEARSS - but its the new blood that keeps the game goin' as much as the old blood.

Well us oldtimers D.loaded the game in the first place for the action and dogfights which is how it was advertised.

You got killed then you were dead,no respawning.

Here is another bottom line for you, the changes that WG did, arguably did not help but to swap out the player base.  The one consistent thing I see carried over from 1.x is that the people that like the current game tell everyone that doesn't like it to adapt or play a different game.  That is a brilliant attitude for a game that uses teams that are mostly filled with bots.  I am happy for those of you that like the current game, but judging by the current population, WG will once again realize that change is necessary (or shutdown) and I hope you and others like you can follow your own advice.  Until that time, enjoy.

That's all they did was swap out the player base for sure and they never learned from the mistakes on the first release so I see it happening all over again.

Enjoy I will, ...but I have a nice boat, custom car...... and so many other hobbies ...and like when (if anyone remembers the game "Star wars" Galaxies) ..I made it to master BH...and they pulled the plug...did I "lament" sure did...but I found another game and always will.

 

Face it, 1.0 is long gone...... water under the bridge...like Galaxies.

 

Adapt/move on ....but everyone has an opinion, doesn't make mine right.

During the recent event where they were doing rankings I purposely kept mine low one weekend. I came out around 1600. So that's roughly how many people are on during the weekend in a big event.

 

Also I'm a reroll of an old player (wanted to give the new version a fresh start) so don't judge someone by their battle count.
