It’s not that easy. If HWS becomes P2W, many haters will come, and i also think many people might leave HWS. Right now HWS is at a good stage, where supporter packages are useful, but you can’t really buy richness.
Making “Special” packages, would be a little difficult.
Yeah, true and good point. I guess maybe just a minor one-time spiff was all I was thinking. But then, you guys are better at knowing what people will tolerate and what they won’t. I defer to you guys.
It’ll only be the ready to spawn BP’s in factory. They’re sticking to the server, so when Rex buys a “new” server, they won’t follow. However with everything else, Rex can just transfer the data to the new server.
Support big fights and restarts are two different things.
Will a forced restart happen outside the common 9AM-5PM-11PM cycle? No.
Will it supports big fights? No. That is a fundamental Eleon game issue, not the best quantum pc with 1 trillion CPU cores can handle.
It is just a nature law. Like flying dogs. Not gonna happen.
Same with Empyrion and Hardware. Not gonna happen to have a smooth game, no money in the world can fix it.
A weird choice but nope, Garage ships are available once the Garage Contest is over:
Yes, we are using OVH since over 3 years and it’s cool.
I found a great deal for the HWS EU server at Black Friday.
Have to see if I’m lucky for NA if we are going for it.
Overall it’s at least true that we have to choose the first day of a month of a switch to not lose money.
I see the overall feedback is YES… so I’ll start searching I guess.
Exactly. They can advertise CPU or hipster modular upgrades as much as they want. More than 128GB RAM cost insane lot.
That is very insane but appreciated! The spirit overall
I will think about such “funding” carefully.
It takes time to build all those submissions. Then it takes more time to go through each and every one and check things, fix them, and ultimately then go through the process of implementing them in to the server.
There are already submissions and new ships have been posted to the garage page already though. I guess I didn’t realize that absolutely no ships at all would be available until after the contest so even if a previous ship was updated we can’t get it. Its a little frustrating because I based out of a Safe Harbor last season and planned to base out of a garage ship again so I had been waiting. I didn’t think I’d be waiting until August for a ship that might be submitted and updated already or any day. But its ok, plans change.
I agree with this. Anyone who knows me knows that I will definitely take advantage of anything that’s available to save time and spend more time doing what I consider to be the most fun in this game (PvP) but there is a fine line between pay for convenience and pay to win. I think it’s well balanced right now and that any additional paid benefits should focus as much as possible on convenience.
Another way to look at this is that spending real money on resources directly seems like a bad idea in general. If there is no limit on the amount you can buy, it’s too pay to win. If there’s too low of a limit, it’s not going to be more worthwhile than NPC trader packages. Also, if there was no limit and someone buys a bunch of resources to stockpile in OCD, some items they paid for could easily get selectively wiped in another patch as has happened with autominers, z/e and magnesium in the past. It’s just all around bad news.
I feel like if the server really needs the fundraiser to make some money for the upgrade, I think a very good option is the “Permanent” upgrades being reinstated for a bit, as that will boost money… I know I’d go into that with an open check xD
