Round reset?

I personaly am tired about this round.
The ides with payed and unpayed mixed isnt quite the best thing
The buddy code is ok but with all these inactives and unexperienced players in gals with experienced players this wont work.
So do ou guys want a rest and make a 11.5 like 9.5 or not?

Re: Round reset?

I'm confused about why this is in the "departing PA" forum - so it's moved to PD.

Re: Round reset?

whats wrong with this round? because you had bad luck with galaxy i dont think a reset will be in the best of interest for the rest of the players considering this round is still very open regarding winners... just my opinions tho.

(ps. i could have had better luck with gal too, but its semi-random, cant expect 9 überleet galmates)

Re: Round reset?

This round is fine, apart from the few gals in the higher clusters that used the exile bug before it was fixed, which was a little lame : /
but hey the round is still going nicely, no large blocks or anything, and everyone seems to be attacking everyone.

im actually enjoying it, im normally bored by now, and go idle

Re: Round reset?

This round is fun*

Challenge of being/staying high-ranked in a crap gal, is refreshing, In addition to which being in the alliance which is targetted the most, just makes it more interesting . Not to mention extra dishes on the side to make it better**
Furthermore, I quite like losing enough rounds throughout the round, to a number which is enough to be top10 on roids itself, but also the simplicity of roiding your way back.

Re: Round reset?

personally I have a great galaxy, but I tend to agree.

I could title this post as "Return to the classic, please!"

Mainly ima just say that it was funner when fighters were eta 6 universe, Co's eta 7, FR's eta 8, DE's aswell, CR's were eta 9 and BS were slowest things.

Having 3 different etas isnt exactely... well, what it used to be


I mean thinkíng about it... planetarion has taken a course of heading to a completely different game.

Games evolve, yes. I agree with that, but you cant make it a completely DIFFERENT game just because it has to keep evolving.

Couldnt you keep the old structure of the game, with some new add-ons?

it would defenately benefit the game, and make the player base increase once again.

Re: Round reset?

the player base is already increasing again.... the difference between eta with now and what it used to be (r9.5 and lower) isn't really differetnt imo

only thing that this round misses are good unit stats tho

they favor the attacker a bit 2 much

Re: Round reset?

I miss the times galaxies had 25 planets, clusters had 25 galaxies and there were like 140 clusters (87,500 planets total)
Now we are playing with 4,361 planets only (according to Pilkara @T790) half of which is inactive

Re: Round reset?

I like the eta-system myself. Personally, I think it goes very well with how the ship stats are set-out etc.

Re: Round reset?

idd, only making it free, with no limitations will increase the player base, but I dont think Jolt wants the hassle of adds etc to try and just make ends meat.

The game is still the same Fernando. You make it sound like they have taken away all space combat, and now you play a friendly hand of poker, if you win you kill the other person and take away his chair (since we dont have planets anymore cause the game has changed so much). The game has not changed very much, yes there have been changes, but by all means the core mechanics of the game are the same.

Re: Round reset?

After being in like 12 or 13 gals this round due to self-exiles, I can honestly say, that many people in the higher clusters simply aren't very active, and being in those gals generally suck. I mean, how can you be #1 in a cluster when you're ranked 1200?

In other news, looks like I won't be winning any lotteries anytime soon.

Re: Round reset?

My opinion may not mean much considering I signed up all of 25 hours ago but compared to previous rounds of PA I've played this thing round is much better. There is no reason to reset it at all. Clusters are balanced, galaxies are helping themselves instead of bolstering one or two planets to protect the rest while they build, etc. This round is far from in need of reset especially since it just hit the half way point (see Round End thread)

Yes, but surely they deserve to be better than that. They probably have waves of incoming, heh. Which they ofcourse wouldn`t as much if they had a gal to a] cross-def b] put off attackers.

*shrugs* some people play when they get the chance, I know a buddy of mine who plays and checks every other to every third day. He likes to play yet doesn't have time everyday. There shouldn't be an issue with people who are bigger then others in a galaxy because if communication between said galaxy members and/or cluster members is good then does it matter? Defense is defense no matter who gives it to you.

Re: Round reset?

TBH my gal sucks a** i would rather play in a gal on my own.

I think round set up for next round should be same as this. It works fine, maybe change the excile part a bit.
