Edited & Retyped this for a concerned member of the community, so
before anyone goes “déjà vu” it should no longer be violating any forum rules I
am aware of at this stage
I am the community, I wanted to write a few words for you guys if you don’t mind.
This was my first online game I ever played, I have been active
daily since November 2013, but I started to slow down around May 2017,
why? VEGA has become a farming game,
where you should farm 90% of the time playing and spend the last 10% doing some
FvF or FvB. In addition, in order to
keep up with others and have fun as you did 2 – 3 years ago, you now need to
coin at least $200 a month (Editor’s Note:
Actually around $900, see here: https://www.kixeye.com/forum/discussion/697787/p1)
Another 2 Important things?
1. Construction times & refit times are insane, it takes more than 20+ days for one ship with alien (Xeno) technology or even Heavy Weapons.
2. Repair Times have gotten far too high, especially with AXIS. Now one fleet can be one to three days of repair, one ship around seven hours, this is honestly a joke.
Let’s be serious, the game now is for coiners only, poor average coiners, or non-coiners, have no power to keep up, as they have no possibility of competing anymore.
You are forcing us players to buy more and more coins, at some point, players are going to drop out because it’s taking them too much time and money.
Also, to repeat a point I made earlier in April:
There are still way too many events in one month, too many alien events, too many civil wars, we finish one event and then another immediately starts. We barely have the time to repair between the two, and we don’t have the time or patience anymore to be online the whole day to just farm and barely fight.
The community is not satisfied with what the game has become, we cannot be online all day to farm and be able to keep up. It has come to the point where it’s too much for us, we don’t have the time to build a new ship with new tech before another one gets released as soon as we finish refitting. For example, I can do a 10 day refit, and then after I’m finished a new tech will be released and I’ll have to refit it again (for yet another 10 days), just to be able to compete.
We are humans who have real lives to take care of, we have a limited amount of time to play per day, and that little time we have we would like to spend in the game to release the stress of real life fighting other players, not being stressed to farm everyday just to keep up and farm some more.
This game is great, but we want it to be better, we want to be able to keep having fun playing it without farming too much, or spending 2 – 3 weeks to build or refit just one ship.
I was the leader of the alliance GOAT (Killer Goat Brigade) until recently stepping down from leadership. It was my hope that following my post in April that changes would be made to correct the game, but nothing has happened. Players, in general, are beginning to leave as this game becomes too expensive and too unsatisfying compared to previous experiences.
The community wants things to slow down and go back to how it was before, while keeping the same main principles intact. We don’t even have a proper week to fight anymore without having an event stop us from fighting as there will be so many AI Fleets in sector I can barely even see my team mates.
What I would like to see is: 1 Main Event. 1 Alien Event. 1 Riot (Now Planet Strike / Sector strike), and 1 Civil War is enough every month. We’d regain the time to build, refit, and fight at the same time. This would make us, the community, very happy to keep playing, and very satisfied to put our money into the game. Reducing the refit time of the new alien techs, or any tech in general, would be beneficial to everyone.
We would love to speak more about details we would like changed if Kixeye is open to it.
One last thing, leaders should have an online streaming meeting with the Community Managers of VEGA if it’s possible like we’ve had previously, if they are interested to discuss more options with the community.
The community really hopes things will change soon in a good way, please understand that we love this game and want to make it the best.
