Re: Continuum Client Broken "Totally Hosed" Useless

So, I think this is client side issue, and I believe those cannot be fixed as the only people with access to the client have been out of the scene for many many years. Also, sadly, if you offer a different zone.dat file through steam I am not sure it would help as most of the new players off of stea...

Re: EG VETERANS DAY PROMOTION

Yeah, there is nothing wrong with the game except that the people that played it have grown up and can't play 6+ hours a day anymore. I mean EG used to pride itself on flag games that would run 5+ hours. I remember spending 2 hours just spamming ?arena trying to get in. The reality is that I have tw...

Re: EG Reunion Day - October 1, 2017

Combo mentioned it? I came up with this idea like 6-7 months ago and you guys told me it was silly because the zone was healthy.

A "It has been real event"

So, I logged on for the first time in a year the other day. It was pretty bleak. Over the years a lot of people have played in this zone, and spent a good chunk of their younger years with other players in EG. I think it would be nice, and fitting, to have a going away party. I know the zone is not ...

Re: The Original EG!

The simple answer is competition. Everyone wants to look internally for the cause of demise, but that is not the issue. Sure, maybe some things could have been done to keep people around a bit longer, but SS is destined for decay. When SS was at its peak, 2000-2006 or so, it was the best free game a...

Hey, how did this work out for everyone? ?find cycad - 3 days. ?find Fc - who the fuck knows when.


Great owners.

Remember when I tried to warn everyone that FC was a power hungry monster who only had selfish ambitions? He ran out of power to gain, and ran out of the zone.

Re: No point of posting ideas

I think people are frustrated because staff took a huge shit on being prepared for the stream launch. There was no new map up, there was no real plan in place, or worked, and half the staff did not even bother to log on. There was a decent player influx, and it was handled really badly. There is an ...

YOU NEED SHIT TO DO

Right now there is nothing for a new player to do in center. There is a flag game going on, and three people fraying. As a player who just installed today there is not shit to do. They don't know how to attach, or use items. They know how to move, and hopefully fire at people. We need to run a rabbi...

Re: New way of starting pubgames

I suggested something very similar to this to FC not that long ago, but he brought up that it would require a lot of dev time for an experiment. I think they are focused on getting what is already there working, and on getting a community back.

Re: Reviving Duel And Prized Events

Duel died when they changed the arena if I remember correctly. The old duel map would always have people on it, and was used often. They changed map and people left. A lot of people moved from duel to baseduel as well.

Re: New Public map and settings changes.

H0st, I have a few reservations about your idea: 1) We've had mini bases near safe before, we have them right now, historically it doesn't create flagging games. 2) You will still get zone death after games and still get long periods of fraying in between due to (1). 3) Again, the map will look con...

we used to run something like this a long time ago. It works well as long as the people running it stay committed. It should be advertised on the frontpage and through the bot ticker as well.

Re: New Public map and settings changes.

The thing about bot commands is that it assumes the person knows anything about subspace bots. These commands might be handy for people coming from other zones, but not so much for a new player. I agree with WHS that they need some kind of obvious, impossible to miss instructions, but that can be tu...

Re: New Public map and settings changes.

I never said that was wrong, and I surely do not disagree with you. I was just saying it was something that needed to be decided on.

Also, just to be cantankerous, we had a fraying/dueling league before a flagging one.

First, I agree with bog with the idea that if you want a game you just make one happen. I played last night for the first time in three years, and I got a flag game going 4 times in like 2 hours by just taking a flag and basing it. You might have to sit in the FR and wait some, but it will happen. S...

I don't think junks would ever be down with a merge. Unless the dynamics between the two zones has changed over the last few years, I just don't think it is a viable option. I suppose TW could just copy the EG settings and set up their own sub arena if they wanted to. They run basically everything r...
