okay so i have begun to hate dreadnought battles.
Empire dreadnought is way op and u can just defend the whole game and win.
It’s too much about the dreadnought imo. if you’re short a utility, ur basically screwed.
There are huge ping spikes for a lot of people including myself and regular packet loss.
There’s terrible fps. I get about 30 fps with everything on minimum when i usually get 60-70 in battle. I have heard from my corp mates that they experience similar things.
There’s too many objects flying through the air and waaaaay to much complexity. Asteroids blowing up pisses me off cuz it reks my fps. it’s also annoying cuz it’s too flashy.
It’s too easy to just sit and defend.
ECM and white noise makes you drop the bomb. Okay not to sound rude but what jackass thought this up? there’s 1 bomb at a time and when u drop it, it’s gone permanently until the next one comes. It was perfect before!
Crash damage is way to high. I die by crashing so often and with crappy fps and huge ping spikes, it’s impossible NOT to crash. EVEN WITH COLLISION COMPENSATOR. I tried the mode without it one time and i died by a slight little bump. was freaking xxxx.
Dreadnoughts are a little too far away from each other or there should be a warpgate utility for dreadnoughts.
Federation drones are too weak. Okay so you have Jericho shields that protect extra, u have empire guns which gain u extra points, and u have federation drones that are a wee little bit better than the other drones. They should be smaller, faster, but with a little less tankiness and same damage. That would actually be an improvement.
Not enough modules for dreadnoughts and modules are way too expensive. There should be engineering module for dreadnought that is basically ur engi for 5k meters and it should cost about 5k iridium. maybe 10k. There should also be an engine inhibitor like the guards have which could also go in the same slot.
The dreadnoughts should actually be fighting in the map they’re attacking. and they shouldn’t be moving. Why would a defending dreadnought be moving? It makes no sense. It should be sitting there in orbit.
There should be things to capture. like plasma turrets to build across the map and sensor nodes to capture in different areas.
Unlimited pinging. You’re not with a group of randoms. you’re with your corpmates and friends. Why not do unlimited pinging. Should be simple.
Make the dreadnoughts repositionable. I got the fed dreadnought cuz i thought it was faster. wing leader or vice wing leader (would have to add that) should be able to move the dreadnoughts around.
Make it so you can tell your dreadnought’s guns where to fire and the torpedos where to fire.
So basically, what im saying is simplify the graphics, make it stable, and add actual content instead of pretty little visual stuff. Make it harder to just sit and defend which is boring. most of our attacks vs empire dreadnoughts, they stayed back and just sat there letting their guns do all the work. fix the ecm and white noise bomb drop thing for all game modes because it’s freaking xxxx.
Now i doubt you devs will listen to me. This is a lot of work. But if you added it, i think you would see a lot of ppl absolutely digging this game and buying more crap and that would probably mean pay raises for you guys. more donuts ya know. Also, don’t just lock the thread and say, “Please make a full bug report.” I am putting this in the suggestions area. Im tired of making bug reports and getting, “known issue”, “not a bug”, “try this magic stuff”, “it’s your isp”, and other things that just aren’t helpful.
For the SC community, if you don’t like part of this, don’t condemn the whole suggestion because of one little part. Quote it and say what u like in it and what u don’t. Even if you disagree with most my stuff, just plus one the parts you like and -1 or whatever the parts you dislike.
