Toonces i totally 100% disagree with your assumption..
I pretty much agree with Mel'kaven. This is all part of making building an interesting puzzle rather than it just being "easy" which i know many players would like, but it is a game and there are supposed to be challenges
In Starport terms you make the quote " but it is a game which is supposed to be challenges .."kinda unreal sentence considering INVADING has never been so easy as it is now.
This has been mentioned time after time = YOU ask us for sensible suggestions in which to make this game more playable - yet when they become unearthed you dismiss it because YOU feel it will make the game unstable and "too easy ".
Starport has been a success in the past because it catered for all aspects of what Players wanted to achieve on it .
Invading, Building, TEAMwork etc - but in reality YOU killed all that off bigstyleee because you kept Port Negs and Mods on near enough every server - hence deleting the requirement of Teamwork and effort in order to achieve a Goal.
Big Bang , IG Homeworlds and near enough every other server has been completely ballsacked because of how easy it is to Invade on there.
Take away the port neg aspect and at least guys would have a few colonies which were harder to invade and worth building because of this.
Cant you understand..the reason over 50% of Starports community left is because of the awful additions that made it far too easy - teamwork isnt required anymore. ?
This is my last ever post on Starport so take notice - or dont , doesnt really matter because on more than one occasion ive offered you help free of charge in order to just try and help you get the game back on track.Apologies to the guys - just about had enough now and will see you all around sometime real soon i hope.
Aaron for gods sake wipe out the Port negs and try and get the people playing Starport to realise just how satisfying it was playing without them - let them feel the warmth and satisfaction of invading 10-20 colonies using a few guys barging Nukes and negs from Starbase - or better still building Nuke cols.
You've taken this game down the wrong path - but have never been man enough to admit it .
You listened to BBQ poor advice - yet still listen to it .
My question is this :
Why does this game seem to solely revolve around perks for Invaders ?
" you cant make this game any easier for them anymore and of 90% of the guys mouthing off in shouts all the time about just how good they are - you wouldnt last 2 minutes compared to the skill that was required pre 2009 !"
Anyhows im off to look for something a little more challenging than this so would appreciate my characters all being deleted Toonces and my profile wiped clean.
Been on here for almost 6 years and seen it demise in a horrible way - i sure as hell dont wanna be around to see the final nail in the coffin.
Peace all - and never forget the good times on here - nobody can ever take that BBQ away from you.
