    Great show again . And I Thank you for letting CMCarter join the disscussion . Although it was never brought up he did mention they are working on something about repair times, which gives me somthing to look forward to . ( Repair times on all fleets is my biggest complaint).

    Show airs live at 11pm my time. and I'm usually asleep by then . 20+ years of getting up at 4am  makes that kinda late.

    Again great show .keep up the good work .

    Jailed for wishing for reduced repair times ... 3  times .... ROFL.. So don't ask ...Banned for a month for asking a 4th time...

    Here is what I got out of Carter's answers from this show.


    In the next couple months we are looking at another update that may focus on repair times. Hopefully more details will follow as we near the update date.

    He's going to try to get more information out to us on the little updates that come through, I.E. the change made to the ion modulator.

    He was mum on the talk about the Vega complexes. Which sounds like they have something cool in the works but can't talk about it.

    He intends to have weekly or by weekly chat sessions in the future to enlist feedback from the player base in a chat or web format versus just the forums.

    in game exploits are always a focus for the VC developers. I.E. the 25% base **** low level players can do to high levels where in the high levels can't retaliate. Possibly we'll see the 25% go to 50% in the future for the first star to get battle points.

    There was talk about a game road map? maybe more of this in the future?

    More BPs for each tier to come? (this comes from Carters post on the forums here but I like the sound of that.


    One thing that I wished he would have indicated were more in the works or more on the radar...

    Alliances or more player inter-connectivity options. He talked about how it's great that we're creating our own alliance communities. I think this is something that should be more focused on as creating a good alliance system in game only promotes community development leading to more long term players. Look at any MMO out there to date. WoW, EVE, etc. they all have robust alliance systems built in game and have a long standing player base. I've seen plenty of F2P games that died because they never created an alliance system. (look at offensive combat that died this January)

    More to do with Battle points then just collect them. He mentioned that the developers should do more with them than just give us a position on the leaderboards but that's where the discussion kind of ended.

    More about what is planned on the next update. I know a lot was discussed about upping the mass on the CMs and base modules however this wasn't discussed in the chat.


    Overall I enjoyed hearing Carter's perspective on things and the mechanics of how things work in VC versus the other games. It's good to hear the systems for VC are very different from BP or WC. 

    I hope to see much more of this in the future! Always interested in hearing what's in the works as it keeps me interested in leveling and upgrading knowing there's more coming in the end game (level 41) than just making fleets for FvF/FvB.

    Me? I'm not a miner, or a warrior. I'm a FARMER!

    Hey guys! It was really fantastic being on Battle Vortex and I'm excited about talking with more of you in VEGA Conflict's upcoming Community Chatters. 

    Th3mistocles - you got it pretty much correct! As for what you want to hear more about, I think an Alliance feature are a great idea, what to do with medals/battle points is an ongoing discussion with the team, and the next update is coming Tuesday! More details then.



    so this sounds really nice they seem to listen to all the ideas we have. and I cant wait for Tuesday now

    Not only do they listen to everything we post on here, they also watch what we are saying in coms and what we post on other social sites. What I got from Carter on the show was that KixEye does listen to us and have long term plans for this game that we obviously can't see at the moment. A lot of the changes people are complaining about are necessary in order for the long term upgrades to work. We are all sometimes missing the forest for the trees because our instincts are to immediately react to what we perceive as an immediate negative upgrade but we don't know that this perceived negative upgrade will make future big positive upgrades possible.

    I just want to extend a huge thank you to CM CarterGee for clearing up a great many concerns we have about VEGA along with many other players. I wish we had more time to pick his brain, but hopefully soon we can get him back for another round. Obviously I would thank KIXEYE for allowing the CMs to come out and visit their community, show some love, and clear up some misconceptions.

    I also wanted to say thanks to all of the Arbiters that asked good questions and kept their cool during the show. We are a passionate bunch, but I was impressed with the way everyone conducted themselves.

    Anyway, great show if you get the chance to see it! It's definitely one you don't want to miss.

    I am still curious as to what the team can do about the chaos in the fleet manager. It is kind of hard referring to it as a manager when it is a scrambled mess all the time. Can you share any insight about this Carter? Is it even an issue the team might correct at any time in the future?

    Thanks for that link ZissisT, I like his ideas for the most part. However, Carter saying that they could draw inspiration from it still does not confirm that the team is actually considering doing anything about it. That information is what I was asking for.

    Streamlining the fleet manager to be more user-friendly is indeed on our roadmap as part of another update, but you won't see it for a little while.
