Wow. Interesting.
Posted: 7/13/2004 10:14:03 AM
Looks like I've been a part of lots of things that upset people (I almost put ticks people off, but I wouldn't want that association :) )

Part of it is just learning the game and I apologize.

But with a rumored bang coming, what things are being done that make the game stop being fun. I know all the defensive fighters are a pain, so I made mine toll (and apparently everyone else except tick have done the same). Is that in fair play?

Also, what other things are annoying? I don't want to be responsible for the game not being fun.

A suggestion I would have is let people play. True the name of this game is WAR but when you kill off less developed players they tend to quit. They figure why keep playing if the BULLY corp is going to beat on them because they are weaker. Try playing a strategy game instead of a bully game. Build your defenses, try and keep the others from getting you. The best offense is a good defense. The game will go longer before being reset & more people will be willing to play with you. Which will make the game that much more fun for you. It might also be an incentive for people to play one character instead of 5 trying to keep up with you.

That's for the response Lightning. I did what you suggested last game. I built tried building my defenses. But corps will always win this game. There is no denying that fact that a team that works together gets a lot more done with 3750 turns a day than a solo player does with 1250. I would love to see No Corps next bang for a real challenge.

Maybe the next bang can be a game where you have a limited number of times being blown up - making defense that much more important.

Your absolutely right. Corps can get a lot more done with their having-using more turns. And occasionally a single player will give a corp a challenge, however the point I was trying to make was if you blow up every one before they get a chance to build up you will drive the newer players to either decide that TW is a dumb game or they will go play somewhere else. Then it doesn't matter how much you can build up your corp holdings. You will have driven everyone away. As it stands now, we only have a few of us left in the current game because the feeling is the universe is dominated by one corp. The game is only about 60 days old. Should it be rebanged already? If it gets rebanged, have the people that were playing going to feel they wasted their time trying to build up only to have it thrown away and then decide not to play again. IMHO those of us who are more experienced players should be helping the newer players instead of destroying them. Just my two cents because you asked for opinions.

I've tried to help new players along, giving them credits to get a good ship and learn.

When I first started playing, I got on everyday and would invariably be on with Where's George. And everyday I would run into his fighters, and he would warp in and blow me away. And everyday i started over until a corp took me under their wings and taught me what I needed to know. Now, if anyone asks I give them help when I can.

Well, it's apparent you just don't get it. You have managed to destroy just about everyone in the game. The game is less than 4 months along and now can be reset. What have you gained? The ability to say "I WIN"? You, as well as everyone else, have spent the last 4 months building up your empire and now for what. The game will be reset and you will have nothing. Even if the game is not reset right away, you will fly around the universe in the emptiness of space destroying what you can find but for what?
There are 5 or 6 active players remaining and 3 of them are in your corp. With any luck, maybe Aron will wait a year and rebang the universe after you get tired of playing.
You may have my planets, I have removed all cash and been destroyed by your defensive fighters. I even moved the planet that is now a level 5 to sector 1088. You can have all 5 planets in sector 1088 & all 3 in sector 1220. All planets should be level 2 or higher in a couple days. Enjoy yourself. I do not plan on playing here again. I understand they have some "killer" games going on over at TWARSBYROW.COM, I hear some of their games have been going for almost 2 years, with 2 new games starting soon.

I wouldn't say we're dominating the game, we are just the only ones that ever make any offensive moves, Calamity is all by himself and still surviving because he has played smartly. Same with Darwitch, we managed to push him out of one section of space we wanted, but I'm sure he has a powerful fortress somewhere that won't be eseally taken.

Knisha was almost wiped out similar to your self so we decided to join forces to become even more powerful :) that is what the game is about. Ask Calamity if you can join, he might take you in.

I for one am not going to sit in my base and do nothing, I play the game to find and destroy others. As is right now there are 3 powerful corps, and if we find any base it will be attacked, and I expect the same.
