Okay so i’m writing this thread because i’m frustrated at eu/rus partiality and how U.S. players are driven away from the game.
For USA players, a lot of us have:
Bad ping most of the time
Don’t have access to the big tournaments due to crazy times (not saturday night ones)
Half a dreadnought time zone
Most events are at odd times
AND NA dreadnoughts are at bad times
Is it any wonder why U.S. players quit? I really have no clue why this alienation of U.S. players is but it’s insanely stupid in a business sense. Devs, U.S. players have money to put into the game. It’s true. If you were to decide to actually advertise (yes i used the a word on the forums *Gasp*), Star Conflict might thrive instead of having a playerbase that is literally playing your game until star citizen comes out.
Want SC to grow
Want to make more money
Want more players to have more fun
Want SC to survive after Star Citizen comes out (cuz believe me, if Star Citizen came out tomorrow, almost nobody would play Star Conflict)
then you will:
Change fed dreadnoughts to 7 o clock pacific time (1 hr after the saturday night gs tournaments start)
Give North America a full dreadnought time zone
Fix the broken server region settings
Make U.S. tournaments and events
Add more new content
Advertising is an investment and it will bring back more than it costs. AKA make you money.
Dreadnought time change will increase dreadnought activity.
the north american dread timezone has a handful of sectors. Sure it has a handful of corps playing, but that’s because of the stupid time.
Fixing the broken server region settings will also make the russian community happy. they don’t like playing with those “140 ping lagz” and i don’t like playing with 210 ping lags. Also, people will quit if they have to play with high ping. It’s no fun to play with 200+ ping. I am relieved when i see 160 ping because that’s usually about as good as my ping gets due to EU almost always being the server region.
Making U.S. tournaments will make the game more fun for U.S. players.
Adding more content makes everybody happy, but please don’t add stupid content like the cov ops scatter gun.
Also, Error, i made one reference to something broken in the game. That doesn’t mean you need to lock this thread and say, “Please make a proper bug report.” Seriously, that’s why i get pissed. Thanks ;)
