with the new format for consolidating sectors, they are in a sense cramming us in like sardines, this will not work, 300 players per sector or 3 diff full alis per sector, this just will not work, 4/5 of the game board gonna go byebye. wowowow. i was expecting 50% of game but this is just to much.
You could lose several fleets and be back up and running a few hours later, would be days now...
Once again "smoke and mirrors"
ty for point out my obvious math mistake, it will be 300 per sector. edited to reflect
OTHER PRIZES:Too many to even bother remembering
I ran some tests during events -- had some friends logon, participate in the event, hit one target and earn only a few points.
They then checked the Leader Board - with only a couple of points, they'd be near the bottom of the list.
They'd finish about 22,000th for most events -- meaning there were 21,999 players ahead of them on the leader board -- to get on the leader board, you had to be an active player -- so about 22,000 active players participating in that event.
The last event, only had about 10,000 participants.
so while that number isn't accurate, it's a good barometer of how things are going. It overstates the actual number of active players. Leader Board are a good way to see how many players are participating. Those numbers have been trending downward -- but no surprise, all the recent events have been pretty bad, nothing new or interesting about them -- designed just to do lots of damage to try and increase coin-coin from repair. Not about fun gameplay, just monetization of every aspect of everything.
But is also shows how badly the situation is with the player base and how much the player base as shrunk and continues to shrink.
Personnaly i dont mind it, it will make sector more active, increase the number of targets and reduce travel time.
The stress on the Kix servers will defo go down, but not necessarily on our laptop/pc.
Here's the problem...
Not all sectors are loaded on your laptop/pc when u log in.
The sector you're in is what loads and eats memory and cpu/gpu power. When u travel to another sector there is a loading screen, so that sector now loads.
But with each sector having many more players, my guess is lag will go up because of that.
I could be wrong as to how this stuff works tho..
Those that like the sedate life, just cruising the 7 seas without a worry, only occasionally flying the skull and cross bones...
Nope. Facebook plays on Facebook and is not reflected in the numbers here, nor are AG and Kong.
I think it loads on a world basis, not a sector basis. You only get a loading screen when switching sectors if you do it through a relay tower. I scroll to other sectors all the time, no loading screen involved at all.
