    Why are we getting yet another event, this time for a month, designed for those less legit players to monopolize?

    While New Ship: Tempest could be interesting, sadly once again the FAQ has holes in it big enough to sink the titanic, again.

    The skill can only target the following players (works like Chain Impulse):
    § from a different clan - I'm clanless, can I use this ability?
    § from a different group - I fly solo 99% of the time - can I use this ability?
    § if from same Company, only on maps that allows same Company PvP - I'm clanless what maps "allow" same company pvp
    § if it won’t result in deduction of Honor - That won't result in honor loss?
    § the second target onwards doesn’t have to be from the same company as the first target - Does this mean I CAN shoot my own company, without honor loss, if they are in a group with players from another company?

    I've dropped 13 top user spots in 11 days, I just want to know if this new ship will allow me to shoot the trains used to push rank in my company..

  3. So it's not just me that noticed this ship has been developed around giving Trainmasters even more of a upper hand:eek:
    31 days of watching bots get everything again, they are for sure forcing any legitimate player away from this bot infested game.

  4. I imagine when all the bots equip this new ship what will happen on the maps everyone shoots each other regardless of whether it's their target or to the nearby NPC, chain pulses are visible everywhere...
    what happens when bots start to release their CD impulse and trigger the nearby NPZs to whom they will give the prizes...
    this new ship is unheard of nonsense, I don't know what BP is thinking, of course they give more power to the bots. I don't even want to think about the trains, what they will do with such skills, I feel sick just reading.

  5. The Battlepass Exchange for the unstable modules (cursor info is incorrect). If you put your arrow over the unstable module itself in the exchange screen it says it has a higher chance for Orcus and Centurion. I exchanged them and cant equip anything to the Orcus.

    After researching, I see it's only a chance or it's random what ship's it will work with. Understood.

    It is worse than "random" it favours useless ships.
    I crafted 6 shield mods because I need 2 for ships actually worth flying - I got, 3 shield mods for; Spearhead (5% shield -3% damage to player ships) Spearhead Veteran (3% shield) and another for Spearhead (6% shield). The other 3 well, 5% shield for Sentinel, 3% shield -1% damage for Pusat and a whole 8% shield -3% speed for Spectrum.
    When the "Higher Chance" is 73 to 1 - There isn't much "chance", of getting anything useful.

    Over 200k uri for battlepass and soccer ammo - for ZERO return.
    At least one thing is clear, DO is still bad at game design.

    I even paid for premium and rebate for this event - So wasted real money too.
  7. I gave up. The mods I have gotten have been for ships I do not use. Its really funny too as I have a loaded hanger but most modules are for the ships I have no interest in 'crafting'. I have also noted that this event is hilariously poorly thought out as the trains in b-maps are unstoppable. It was one thing when a player hid the 'offline ships' cloaked in his group in the map giving him bonuses. Now they openly swarm you. Its painfully obvious that the ships are basically drones following a leader. This needs to stop and the devs need to implement a connection check or something to stop 8 ships coming from the same ip address.

  8. i use the bp key to open bp boxes on maps, have had much better useful mods this way, but that's just my experience, plus it only cost one key per box:D

    I tried this after someone suggested it in discord - Used 20 keys and the best I got was 1,000 CCH ammo. I did get 100 Eternal Fragments which was a great help seeing you need 500 to do anything with them and then Extra energy, Booty keys, Log disks, I got plenty - Might be useful for new/er players, (who aren't able to do the Battle Pass due to all the trains running around in 4-4) but are of little use to me at all.

    As for SpaceBall - On my server, unless you belong to one of 5 or 6 clans (all allied) you're not getting near the ball let alone collecting anything from it. Yesterday they had 3 trains (1 mmo, 1 vru, 1 eic) in 4-4, 2 sat in the middle while the third escorted the ball to the respective portal for their "friends". NB; The trains aren't even collecting from the ball, they just take it to the portal for their allies and instapop anyone else.
    Maybe running SpaceBall several times a day might help to give those not in mega groups a chance because as soon as the "event" is over you can see these guys logoff enmasse. Run it at random times, so these guys have to be online to see it rather than knowing when to have the trains logged in and ready.
    Funny thing, when there is no "extras" during normal SpaceBall - Seeing more than 3 or 4 people doing it would be a thing. Hardly anyone bothers with spaceball outside this "event".

    I guess DO are happy giving all the advantages to the mega groups with their trains, wrecking events for legit players and smaller "non allied" groups.

    The gap between Legit players and trains/botters grows wider with every event. Time to address the bias.
  10. Can't even get a look at Space Football on GB1/2, it's totally overrun with you know whato_O, i even reset my skill tree to make sure i don't do this event:confused:, it'll take about 3 weeks for sep to build up to put research points back :D

    That would entail DO admitting there was a problem.
    Banning trains would be a very costly venture for the company, think of all the money lost if they banned groups of 8 accounts at a time.
  12. Those accounts do not buy uri only steal.
    They may buy a week of premium but it runs off any potential growth in players. I dont see new players anymore. I never see any of the starter ships at all.

    Most are bought ships running around as anyone with a ship in the top 100 would know how to fight.
  13. Space Cup 2022 & Black Light Ranking Feedback?

    In case you hadn't noticed Mr Moderator, all the feedback from most events if not all ends up beings about the biggest problem on this game, and NO i'm not hijacking any threads! It's plain to see that DO BP (DO NOT) care about legitimate players' any longer. This is real feedback and not some confirmation bias from dishonest players'. The event has been designed for bots, that is a fact.

    On GB1/2-GE5, is overrun with them, trying to do any event that's not a Gate is a total waste of time. On each map they have a player that gathers all the npcs' on map and drags them to a train, how can any legitimate player compete with this!

    Time travels back to 2011< Support, "we're working on it" :confused: long coffee breako_O

    Not sure if this is "event" related, never seen it before.
    This is all I get on the back page. Can't access hangar, shop, dispatch - Nothing on backpage works.

    Slow down, space pilot!
    You were clicking a little too fast for our tracking systems - we almost lost you there! Not to worry though, our space engineers are already working on getting you back on track.

    What were or are they working on :confused: a better way to rid the game of any legitimate players' and or those that speak out against 3rd party players':eek:
    1: can't do any "normal" grind (too many trains)
    2: can't do Space Cup (too many trains)
    3: EBG 1 life< no point in that
    4: Astral NO< i didn't spend all that £XXXX to do a gate in those pathetic ships
    5: can't do palla (full of 3rd party)
    6: can't box (too many 3rd party on maps)
    7: so now what:confused: sit around waiting for an event like ToT or Labyrintho_O

    Feedback for your Event:rolleyes:

  17. Only thing I find a bit off about this event, granted its based on the World Cup, so its competitive based play, but more objectives or other aspects of the event could be aimed towards none PVP players who prefer just to dilly dally around with NPC's, gates, etc.

    Are you on a completely different game? it has nothing to do with as you put it "none PVP players who prefer just to dilly dally around with NPC's, gates, etc."
    This is what i'm talking about, this is the kind of confirmation bias these devs are looking for, not real feedback about another bot infested event!

    Not really sure what you "think" the world cup is but I can assure you what goes on during this event is NOTHING like it and has even less to do with it.
    This event is about which group can field the most trains to ruin the event for legit players during the only real part of the event worth doing, SpaceBall.

    Getting all the objectives completed is quite easy. Just wait until spaceball ends and the trains all logoff enmasse then go do 1v1's with the legit players left in 4-4.
    Spending 10 hours in 4-4 to complete an objective is honestly just BORING. Can't do it while the trains are there so have nothing else to do but fly around an all but empty map for 10 hours.

    I'm not sure who designs these "Events" but they clearly don't play the game and have no idea who does play, or why and how it is played.

  20. We had 4 trains in here and spaceball wasn't active. But We completed all but the 10hour challenge pretty quick, the refs were simple, and the 60 kills came with the Block Wars.
