I'm just going to toss this out there.

Slowing stuff down in the game like ships speeds and weapon reload times etc... just makes people mad. No one wants to wait forever to move or fire.


THere was a few of us talking in the lobby the other day about some of the changes and some of the things we wish were not changed.

Alot of people would like to see the Old Jumpgate system restored because it doesn't matter what you edit with SY's and WH's they will still be abused.

Sure you may not be able to spawn at a SY if there are enemy ships near the planet but whats going to stop a cloaked kluth ship from parking near the planet so people can't spawn.

Or whats going to stop having a SY on everyplanet.

Defending a system by camping the gate used to be fun. Now all they need to do is WH right past you.

From what I seen so far in the beta I likely won't be playing it. Yes I know it is not complete yet but from what I see and heard from others I think it will be too slow and restrictive.

Why not just give all teams access to all weapons from all factions. Then people wouldn't whine so much that this is too powerful or that is.

I agree on the slow bit.

Waiting in games for something is never nice.

I dont care Massive dreads should not be able to dodge incoming fire.

Scouts, Frigates yes maybe Destroyers but not Cruisers and dreads.

If you wanna move around like Jet fighters then get a decent Jet fighter game. Stop crying you people cry in release you cry in beta when it isnt even finished.

Well this is another one of those invalid arguements based off of only 60% implementation of the code.

The purpose behind beta testing is simple, testing whats being put in. If something is broken, then inform us and we fix it.

It is not for whining about what you dont want changed or dont like, especially when you are basing it soley on heresay and 60% of the final product.

We've repeatidly stated the ship speeds are changing back up. Not as fast as some want, but Dreads should NOT be drag racing destroyers and scouts.

I think some people just have certain issues with stamina and want to convince the rest of the world that slow is bad, and really quick is good, so they can feel better about themselves.

I just have too much free time to think of bad attempts at jokes.
