    Developer Diaries: Update 0.7.12 - Discussion Thread

    Slightly disappointed about still no word on Alaska, but looks interesting otherwise.

    Salty kids reporting for no reason

    That's the adult response. Welcome to the 1% :) (at least, it feels that way sometimes)

    [Bug] Stuck in division

    I'm in agreement, two BF containers after all that seems like a bit of a letdown. I'm grateful to Mr. Conway for the help and taking the time to look into this, but I'm not sure these lackluster compensations are the best strategy a company can have. I hope, at least, we never see that bug happen again, that week was rough given the average team quality these days (just finding players with over 50% wr in their current ship is somewhat rare these days, so you need the carry potential of a division just to be able to have fun).

    It sure does :)

    Salty kids reporting for no reason

    Like, I understand some of the responses - it's not exactly a huge issue, and I'm not claiming it is, merely a mild annoyance. Personally I'd prefer it if salty, ragy kids just smashed their keyboards in the comfort of their parent's homes, rather than reporting people who outplayed them, but that's just me :) Again, not a big issue either way. Just a thought.

    Salty kids reporting for no reason

    I know karma doesn't affect much, other than the amount of compliments / reports you can dish out each day, but I still find it somewhat annoying when you get reported by a salty enemy because you dared kill them in a pvp game. My suggestion is simple: disable the option of reporting an enemy player if he scored at the top of the scoreboard. These kinds of reports are pretty much all just made by immature kids screaming "aimbot" because they don't want to admit to themselves they've been outplayed, anyway. (to be honest, reporting someone for "poor gameplay" is a ridiculous option to begin with - if wg banned all the bad players they can close their company and declare bankruptcy right now, it's clearly just an "I'm not happy" button for salty kids to push - ideally reports should be exclusively for chat violations or suspicions of using hacks, which can then be checked on by wg and appropriate action can be taken).

    [Bug] Stuck in division

    There's been some time since the server reset and we were released from our phantom division, but we still wasted about a week's premium time not being able to div. There was some word on compensation for this issue, so far nothing's happened though. I do understand that this can take some time, but I did want to check on this - thanks in advance, @MrConway
  8. Yes, the whole "must have both ships to be able to get doubloons" thing feels incredibly greedy. I get that it's a bit of a compensation for players who already had the original ships, but they could have handled this in better ways. For example, if you own atago and drop atago b, you receive doubloon value for atago b and the black permacamo option on your regular atago. Or allow owners of both to sell one for doubloons. From the perspective of someone who didn't have any of the original ships, things start looking annoying. You have a doubloon mission that doesn't expire dangled in front of you, but to complete it you would have to buy a ship that costs more than the value of doubloons on offer, and you'd end up owning two identical ships for no good reason. Now multiply this annoyance by 4 if you dropped all the ships, and you start to see how poorly thought out this was.

    I can confirm the server reset got us out of that division we were stuck in. It's been a rough week, and I'm glad it's over - I really hope I won't encounter this bug again. Now all that's left is see what kind of compensation goodies Mr. Conway was kindly talking about :)

    Server reset is tomorrow morning, though, and I'm expecting it to fix it. If it doesn't I'll

    Much appreciated! I'm one of the guys stuck, Woute (the division leader) should be messaging you with in game names now. Thanks in advance.

    [Bug] Stuck in division

    I mean, I really hope they have an actual fix and it isn't just "servers will reset in a week, problem will go away for you then, let's hope you don't get it again". However.. it's been around as long as the game, they haven't fixed it, and just as I get it and complain to support, they say they have a patch ready next week? That's quite a coincidence. But let's hope it's actually getting fixed.

    [Bug] Stuck in division

    They probably haven't bothered to develop ways to fix it short of restarting a server, so they have their support waste our time with "suggestions" that can't work above until we just get tired and wait it out till the next server restart. It's completely unacceptable that this issue that's been going on for years, and prevents people from teaming up in a team based pvp game, doesn't have some kind of a failsafe or workaround. The game just happily ignores the fact I've been in the same division and battle for 72 hours, what could be wrong. Meanwhile the game is completely unplayable solo thanks to the glue eaters wg mm provides me with. 4 min in, half my team dead. "MM is fine, doing anything about it would make q times longer". No it wouldn't. Not if you just divide players more evenly from the same pool. 5 times in a row enemy gets decent dd's while I get all red stat ones that instantly die, and ofc the garbage Midway that doesn't know what the alt key does always finds it's way on my team vs a hurrican league, unicum one. So now I can deal with all this solo while WG does nothing. Great.

    [Bug] Stuck in division

    I don't really see how that would help... and we can't even get games together, anyway. See, the game just reports us as being in division so we can't actually div up with anyone - but we're not actually in a division, and we can only each play solo (short of trying to sync drop, ofc). Worst part is, the glue eaters are out there in force and the game is pretty much unplayable without being able to div.

    Good morning WG! How are you on this beautiful day? If you're wondering how I'm doing, the answer is.. ..still stuck in that ****ing division.
