New players are already put into the country with lowest numbers. All this does for the imbalance is make sure all of the seal pups are grouped together on the outnumbered side.

Fixes the Balance Problem, doesn't piss off your paying customers, offers some incentive to actually subscribe, and it doesn't make us beta test all the many methods of forcing balance.


More benefit to the overwhelmed countries to send the larger squads over along with the High kills per death and Kills per time crowd.

OKAY     WAIT A MINUTE hItECH.......

Been away from forum for a while so not sure if anyone asked...




To win you must own 90% of your own fields and 33% of each other countrys fields.



WTF happens when 2 countrys donot fight eachother and take all of 1 countrys fields?


Just currious Because I'm watching it happen RIGHT NOW

They own more than 33% of our fields and none of eachothers......so what will happen? We just get wiped out?

Thatīs exactly the reason why HT has made some fields in each country uncapturable: To prevent one copuntry being wiped out from the map without a reset.

I like the idea of keeping each side balanced.  It's a BIG + when the ENY is high and you can't fly the plane you want.

What happens if it is a squad night and not all of your squad can be together?

On the other hand, I really like it when my side is outnumbered by a considerable margin. Cheap perk planes, lots of targets and a nice perk point modifier! :)

HT I agree informing about changes is just pointless if it is in the form "Hey guys this is what we are gonna do". It will as you say just prolong the whining.

Better thing to do is to manipulate the community into thinking they decided what gets done. Make them think they came up with the ideas that get implemented. They feel informed, listened to and part of the games progress. It is a nice illusion that strenghtens the ties between the supplier and the customer.

IMO I dont like the large icons for capturable bases, its too hard on the eyes. I would rather see the small icons back for all bases and all bases capturable.  Only being able to capture  one base in a select number isnt that fun. Some of the fun our squad had was to sneak bases, but with these changes into effect it makes it difficult to enjoy the game

Hmm did you actually play with the new settings? Almost all bases are capturable now anytime. I have seen lots of sneak attacks. If the current 3 uncapturable bases were capturable, one country could get wiped out  days before a reset.

I was going to say that, I think it is obvious from a number of the protests that are complaining about things that are no longer there or never were.

But then as I thought about it more I was struck by the idea that the game is more enjoyable when you attack things that are not defended by human opponents. Or to quote more accurately...not enjoyable without being able to capture undefended bases.

I am having serious trouble understanding how that fits into MMOL gaming at all, at least from the standpoint of not being able to have fun if the enemy fights back. Not that it's not fun from time to time to do such, that is NOT what I am saying, but as a basis for finding the game fun or not...
:huh

Good grief. "Uncapturable" bases. Even the word sounds silly.
 
No place for sneak attacks or flanking manuevers. As if this were a WAR game   :rolleyes:
