Hey kixeye, we of ICU want fresh targets. The thousand or so players that are left playing this game hardly interest us any longer. Storm on advertising, get some commercials rolling and get some new players. Your game is dead, you’re servers are empty. Time to fill the void with something new?

    And what would you do with the thousand or so negative reviews on the App Store? Players left this game for a reason, and sooner or later, no one is going to play VC anymore because everyone else was told that the game is run by a **** company, that don't even PAY THEIR OWN EMPOLYEES enough.

    Ok.. noted.
    Does it change the path? No
    Those that wish to play will play, those like you quit. Good bye.
    Now you are stating something that would bring you a ban... let the employees state their grievances, if any with the company. They do not need your bullshit here

    In all seriousness though, we need more players. Kixeye, something is lying to you. What if we shut down some sectors? Is that sort of thing allowed?

    I honestly think they focus on revenue per player rather than total...

    There is a Chinese law that forbids forgien companies from storing data on Chinese citizens, so Kixeye cannot judt merge servers.

    And that is exactly what gives them info that things getting better. If there is less players then spending's per player is higher and they conclude that everything they do is better. Oh boy how dumb they feel when truth gets them :tongue:

    I’ve been informed that getting to the point where you can use current tech takes 3-4 months. So within 6 months we could have players.

    Cant see how this can be possible without millions of coins. Upgrading base to the point that u can even use that latest tech takes at least year if u skip all the CM upgrades and focusing only tech. If we talk about new players. Cant imagine anyone building base without single mine or combat module. What definitely have to happen is upgrading all the tech buildings and factory and fleetbay and bridge and resource modules to even have ability to upgrade latest building upgrades. If i count all these times i get year or something like that so how the h-e-l-l new players getting latest tech and even use that at all with 3-4 months? Only million coins can help you there with 4 months.

    No players are coming. If u want noobs to burn u prob need to find yourself another game u can play. It's over. That much is obvious. No amount of advertising would change that.

    I suppose they could, I bet the people in the ghost sectors like 200 where no one leaves their base wouldn’t notice a thing if they all got moved somewhere more crowded to save space on the servers.

    Really noticing player numbers dropping now. Wherever we go, there are less and less players. Vega Conflict is in its death throes.

    @CM Chris does Kixeye care to respond to this? Is there a plan to get more players playing Vega?

    It's a great game, it's a real shame to see the excessive repair times and excessive power creep killing the game for so many players.

    Thast true. Its started a long while but now mass of player stop playing vega.  Im one of them. Im still log in sometimes to look around, but in my recent experience that im easily spend days without the thought of vega. Its shame, it was a good game. For me the downhill started with the xeno class, when xeno weapons come (and a no skill era begings) in to the game and  roll over what balance the game remain.

    Its hard to say what have i done if i were kix position now. Advertising is not one of them, there are so many negativ ratings on the game, if i was look after a new game, after i read them,  i surley look after an another game.

    Maybee if Kix do something big offering over a week, (t.ex. one ship some type of inloggning gift) than some player come back. Maybee you dont think that, but hej, we have a conversation at least.

    The fact that, all of my ingame friends are less and less online, most of them are long time ago moved on to one new game.
    But if anyone can link here to @CmCris, i wonder have Kixeye some form ofdate of online players? And if that so, can they check how many player go offline after inloggning (5 minutes period).

    Thanks fo reading, i hope we still see each other in the game.
    (and yeah, i know gramatik lessons...) :)
