Re: I have never seen a game with so much potential and with such a fan base be so grossly mishandled.

TBH with all of you I am afraid the designers no longer know what to do about the game. For the company, they have made their first sale product cash and it will depend on the lesser revenue stream from new players to continue work. Basing a game where balance is not a concern or priority was a bad ...

Re: Roadmap update, Ranked Matches, Leagues, Leaderboard and more!

I would presume that FUN is the basic reason for, not just playing, but continuing to play, any game. If you do not enjoy what you are playing, especially if you paid real money for it, then you have continuing frustration. It is hard to believe that anyone does not understand this. BFG:A was made a...

Re: Thoughts about progression system

This game will be tweaked and DLCs sold later, maybe, but the actual fact is that BFG is turning out to be a 'one-off' sale. I have a sneaky feeling that they are already (or already have) begun work on their next title. We can expect little more than tweaking and maybe a few DLCs as the basic game ...

Re: Dear Tindalos...your match making sucks ass.

What I find difficult to understand is the simple fact that so many have dismissed what the design team said from (almost) the start of the game. THEY ARE UNCONCERNED ABOUT BALANCE IN THIS GAME! Why is this fact so difficult to understand by so many experienced gamers? Well, of course, experienced g...

Unable to access game

I tried to get into game (my birthday) but have failed. My computer accesses the steam account but the Gothic game fails to respond. Just wondering what happened and if this has happened to anyone else. I waited on the picture screen with those three little blinking dots for several minutes but - no...

Re: Roadmap update, Ranked Matches, Leagues, Leaderboard and more!

6) NO ELO! All players get to start at same level with one Admiral and one Faction fleet they chose. They take that fleet, and Admiral, which they may change around before each match, until they are beaten in a BO3 win/lose result. Bottom Line is the KISS principal. Somewhat like chess, equal sides...

Re: So a single Korean has killed off Tindalos ??

Excellent, then the devs and I are on the same page. If I wanted balance instead of a good number of varied factions I'd be playing the aforementioned chess. That's great! That means this game will have a maximum player capacity of ~2,000, and then completely die within a year. If a faction is obje...

Re: Roadmap update, Ranked Matches, Leagues, Leaderboard and more!

Having gone through the list I have to make the following observations: 1) The designers of this Ranked system have fallen in love with a beautiful complex system, their 'baby'. I have seen it before in game design work where the basic concept of fun and competition have been lost in a 'rube Goldber...

Re: This game still has serious balance concerns

I'd definitely say a lot of the balance and "unfun" bits in BFG:A have to do with the excessive use of RNG. RNG, in general is NOT a good mechanic to use because it takes control of situations mostly out of the players hands. You cannot control if you get a lucky cit, you cannot control i...

Re: So a single Korean has killed off Tindalos ??

Thing is, you're never going to have perfect balance outside of chess. And even then, the only reason chess matches are "balanced" is because they consist of two games, with both players alternating black and white. The reason chess is balanced is because the two sides have the SAME numbe...
