Papa Cap said:I think Kixeye's biggest problem is with testing and setting reasonable expectations for players. It seems to me that most expectations are based on the whales, which isn't realistic. Let the whales win. Don't use them to determine how tough your targets should be. Or, perhaps give them their own sectors and events with completely different targets and expectations. But you can't expect a casual player/coiner to enjoy a game that is tuned for whales. I'm not saying that non-coiners should be able to perform as well as high-coiners, but they should be able to enjoy the game. Take a hint from Las Vegas casinos. Tens of thousands of people who gamble a few hundred dollars a day is better than a handful of people who gamble tens of thousands of dollars a day.
this goes back to Black Water Battles in Hindsight. A time when value was favoured by how the Player enjoys this. Player demands created this. Not Kix. Maybee instead of us all whincing about this that and the other to this us players also step a little to help. ..Stop asking for the whole toy store if one toy does it...ever hear of too much of a good thing spoils the rest? Balance- Let us Players develop what we have for now..use this time to Fix the need to cater to the Beast-The Player.
the main problem is the stuff that needs to be fixed to save the game is the stuff kixeye is not willing to fix. build, repair times. less content, slow down the events. you wont ever hear then say anything about fixing those things and for that reason the game will never get better. making small changes is not going to cut it. and thats the bottom line. kixeye will simply not do what is REQUIRED to save the game.

I keep stating a slow down on new hulls is required. But once again kix is not listening to us CUSTOMERS!!!!! I quit the game again for 4 months, just dropped a few coin a few weeks back. And even with this bullcrap letter from Kix CEO, they are selling more stuff faster than ever, and coming out with new hulls even faster. As the mods can see by my join date, I ain't someone who started in last 2 yrs. I started pretty much at the start of the game back in the black water days. So far this yr the Mods have removed a couple of my posts/threads stating too much content too fast then I get messages from them stating I am trolling. Well Mods and Mr. Ceo, you need to listen to your player base if you wish to keep your company afloat. Once again thinking of just scrapping everything in my base and calling it quits!!!!! YOUR COMPANY NEEDS TO LISTEN TO PLAYERS ON HOW TO KEEP THIS GAME GOING!!!!! I use to play war commander, but it got so far outfield with new content, too fast way before BP, now BP is going down that same road even faster..... Y'all sure do know **** a damned good game. Just slow down on the hulls, and give us players time to build a full flt before they go obsolete, or pick up the pace on build time for NEW HULLS instead of obsolete hull that are worthless!
