Hey HWS Community,
I want to share a status update because personally, for me, some things are in a not so good state at the moment.
New HWS NA Server
This turned out to be the first disappointed for me. After I saw how highly requested it was also from the community I looked almost everywhere for a new server.
The current, good hoster we are having, has no good servers at the moment. At least I have no luck at all. Either it’s only available in France, Sydney or just not what we need.
Then I found a good one at IONOS, but it turned out to be fraud scam crap. I registered everything to found out later, that they blocked and canceled my order without a damn reason.
Another server was cool too but only US Citizen were able to buy it.
So overall, I’m back to the beginning, looking still regular for a good server for NA.
Sorry for the delay and kind of claim I made about being able to move this week. Didn’t expect this to happen
Why the sudden impact btw.?
Because HWS 10 has much more active playfields than last season. I added more Freighter, the Ori planet but also more Supporter Space playfields, which are on NA already sold out as well. I didn’t know that it would have such an impact.
HWS Connect v5
While Hayawen still makes awesome progress on it and cool stuff is coming soon, I’m not able to finish the design rework and in general few important changes.
If I do such things I need some time and concentration. At the moment, all the time something interrupting me.
My plan for that to finish is still for the next season!
Checking some data about credits / RP / HWS Ingots / items or PvP gameplay or PvE gameplay, I am not that happy. More or less “it works” but it feels more and more, not “in my control”. Inflation is killing HWS here and there, POIs are overdue for an update with Shields and better loot, Planets can be much better made with new tools from Alpha 10 and Features need some polishing as well.
I can only say, that my plan is to fully rethink / balance stuff for the next and further seasons.
It’s one of the most challenging tasks but one of the worst things for me is dealing with legacy.
Patreon is still blowing my mind. How it got boosted so quick, so high by you. Thanks a lot!!
But I want to work on more goals for you and restructure them a bit once I have more time again.
Please let me know though, how you like the new integration in HWS Connect, the benefits and what else could be implemented for HWS Patrons?
Just a reminder / for your information:
there are some PMs lying around you have sent to me. Complains / Requests / Suggestions / etc.
I would appreciate if you can re-send them to me. Best over the forum here.
Overall, at the moment, and reason for the current status is that real life needs more attention from me. A lot of taxes have to be organized, I’m changing some conditions of different insurance contracts, the move to a new home has still work for me. The last 2 days I’m building the kitchen for example.
So after 3 years, it’s the first time I just have to forcefully step back from HWS a little bit to clear stuff in real life.
It’s a temporary thing, so please hold on a bit.
That being said, I still try to catch up with some things and the best you can do is to send me a forum PM. Discord is really just a quick “on / off” platform for me, I can’t keep track of hundreds of PMs.
I’ll keep you updated if anything important is coming / changing.
Until then, feel free to comment below what things in your opinion need a rework or balancing in the next season (maybe some things can be addressed in the current one as well)
Thanks for reading, your support - no matter how but most importantly: playing on HWS!
