    After over analyzing this message sent to me yesterday, I kept on
    repeating the part that says

    "Thousands of new players for you to group with".
    Why would anybody want to group with someone New who is a level 1 to 5,
    there are no new quests or incentive for grouping with a new player.

    This led me to believe that a Server Merge may finally be coming.

    what do you think ?

    They have stated many times that server merges would not happen.
    Instead there is going to be a advertisement campaign by the sounds of it, to fill up the already existing servers.

  4. In business terms that idea would merely be a "Boom bust cycle"
    as in registering and then just leaving.

    Soon as some new levels up an try's going to a PVP map they would
    simply keep on getting popped and most definitely give up even trying.
    (unless there's going to be more protection for noobs or newer maps in lowers)

    It would be the smartest thing they could do. No new players are going to stay in this game long. Darkorbit you better listen to your players. We see the chats and know what most people want. This would make my server super active. It would be cool to see how a server merge would challenge other players ranks and the fights would be great.

    Or they make it easier for the new players to gain equipment, which I think is their goal. They are trying to re-release the game, I think a year down the line it will be very different to what it is now, the changes DO have planned are all for long term fixes, a server merge would just be a short term fix.
  7. would be totally awesome specially in GA1 which on we have many rivalries against GA2 and GA3 its gonna be awesome

    I dont agree with making it easier for other players since no games are supposed to be easy. What I think BP should do is to create more pvp more maps and new ways of interacting with the maps and aliens

    On so many levels it would not be a good move to merge servers. It would just speed up the reduction of player numbers.

    The only way to get a sustained increase in player numbers is to make the game more playable for the average player reducing the gulf between UFE and the average player. and or reducing the cost of FE and UFE items. But I see that as being less an less like as time goes by.

    Well the problem is at the moment that the game is too hard, the gap between paying and free players is what caused the decline of this game, in large part.
    I did not say it had to be just plain easy, just easier. It certainly can't stay as it is right now or the situation will not continue to improve.

    †→Zєηη←† when you want to add a post before anyone else has posted, edit your last post. Double posting is against the forum rules.
  11. I understand... I paid to become UFE and everyone from my situation would say that making it easier for new players is unfair cuz they would catch up on us really quick. But making some changes to aliens kills and bonus boxes wouldnt be that bad, but it still needs to be hard, come on its a game it aint supposed to be easier

    REMOVED.... let the admins do their job ok?
    I know the forum rules, n I have a life and im rushing right now, not like you... get a life man.
    oh btw you are also spamming the post. You should've edited ur first post is that enough for you? so shut up ^^

    I am in your situation, twice over.
    I have UFE accounts on GB2 and East3, one which has been General. So no, everyone in your situation is not against making it easier for players to get UFE ...
  13. Well from what most of my friends say, they dont like the idea, but also we have to add that darkorbit is not only about having all ultra elite, it requires skills too, but most of the people that I know they dont like it. Idk why...

    well tbh i welcome the idea id rather new players do some of the starter quests learn abit about the game and start of standard fe but thats just me idc if ppl think they are getting it easy id rather players back in the maps and see people in the maps again for a change only reason u dont want them getting eqiupment easier is coz u wont get any more easy kills you sound like one of these bottom feeders who cloaks up in lowers and one shot pop libs and think your great
  15. not everyone in your situation thinks that. I for one wouldn't mind if b.p made it easier for free players to 'catch up', because it would improve the battles, on the game. You sound like you're worried that if every catches up to you, you won't be able to get easy kill :rolleyes: .
    I mean, fair enough that you spent money and that you should have an advantage of getting equipment quicker than free players, how're that doesn't that they shouldn't make it at least easier? Because of they don't then free players would eventually get tired of trying to catch to chase ufe players thus qiuting the game. And this would just repeat itself till eventually there isn't enough players to keep the game going and such.
    sirpwnsalot34 and 2010!! like this.
  16. Honestly, sign up for a new account on US East 1 as EIC or VRU.... you get popped constantly by RPM or any of the other UFE clans who are equipped to the max and often accused of unfair play cough cough. Why would ANY new player want to stick around through that?
    A lot of the UFEs on US East 1 would LOVE a merge...more targets for them to shoot at. Not for the good of the game but for their own selfish wants.
    There are still players using illegal enhancements, the game is not clean and few new players are going to pull out their wallets to build up.
    And a lot of us have accounts on multiple servers...why would I play three accounts on the same server in the same company? Ridiculous.

    You have not paid to be UFE, if you still think you are UFE then I really do not know what it will take to stop you being so deluded.:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::(:(:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:
    Are you so scared, that truly skill players will show you up to be the DO noob that you so clearly are?
    How would "making it easier for new players" or even average players / spenders equate to "they would catch up on us really quick" to an UFE WW ( oh I forgot, you are a deluded UFE ,so they may well catch up on you really quick
    I guess you would not know what working hard to get something was?

    When was a game "aint supposed to be easier" Fact :- This game when it was at is peak for player numbers and cult community following anyone could compete will maximum equipment and consumable with just premium( about 10 pence per day) with in a few months. anyone that chose to send £k/$k to act like a bully should be ashamed of how the perpetuated the distribution of a once great game, by encouraging greed over sound decision making.

    If you know the forum rules, why do you continue to break then?
    Explain how I am breaking the spamming rules or any other forum rules for that matter? ( when have I ever had "
    REMOVED" in one of my posts?)

    You say you have a life as an excuse for not pressing edit just before you post.:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Your life must be so busy that you spend so much time here making yourself look so much like a DO uber noob, but cant click edit before posting.

    I guess you would not know what it would be like to get a life, you sound like you are just out of nappies.

    I'm not trying to do a forum mods job, I would struggle to be so impartial.

    I can debate my point, without lame derogatory comments.

    If you want me to "shut up" do the following:-
    create a post that makes valid points, that I have no reason to rebut.
    Stop using unnecessary irrelevant derogatory comments.
    Stop spamming.
    When you have so obviously lost the debate or have been proved wrong, give up gratefully.
    You just look stupid otherwise.

  18. you selfish players are going to kill the game, think about it.. i'm UFE but i'm good with DO roadmap, they must make it easier for new players, servers are empty and that is the only way to fill them up. I think they should make a sort of protection based on levels, so that an UFE can't shoot a noob but a noob can shoot another noob, this applied only to some specific maps or also the needed gap between levels could increase as increase the number of the map(you can always shoot a noob in uppers for example).

  19. Now noobs get protection outside of x-1 maps. Im not sure how long it lasts but once they shoot they are free game. I think this was a good idea, now they can go higher maps and npc hunt with no worries of a fe/ufe sending them first class back to base. Even if they are on a npc they cannot be attacked, i think that should last until they are lv 10
  20. No there is no server merge. If you watch the video Rick states "We are hoping to get more and more new comers into the game" That is what they meant. A server merge is not currently possible without numerous problems occurring. Dark Orbit admins have already said, it has been brought up many times, but they can not think of a way to do it without causing a problem.

    Example: Dark Orbit decides to fuse USA East 1 and USA East 2 together. Say there were 1000 players on each server. There is a chance of 200 of those players losing data or such.

    Also ranks, if people were to be moved, the ranks would go crazy, and those who worked for their say 4th place rank, will be out done by maybe 5 players from the other server.
