Irrelevents 23 Posted April 10, 2020 Share Posted April 10, 2020 So, true to form, the discord has been a Hot Mess since we read the update. There's a Lot of discussion about the direction of "progress" and also a bit of debate about the future of the game as the "Spirit of the Game" has come up again; I feel like these are not two truly distinct things. So the matter at hand, and what i think will ultimately decide much of the conversations going forward, is what kind of game is this Really? What Exactly do you want this to be? We know it's a little bit travel game, we know it's a little bit flag your area game and we know it's a little bit "i can fight you because I can see you" game. Invariably, players have been disappointed because there are elements of gameplay that they're trying to incorporate into this game and it's not following what you've envisioned. So.. maybe we need to straighten things out. I'm not going to speak for anyone else here, this is not the combined query of the discord chat, this is My question: What exactly is the nature of this game? My understanding, as it is Right now, is that it's really a glorified travel tracker with some war mechanics added on. That it's purpose is really Not to be played often, that it's something that is supposed to be mildly amusing if you happen to find yourself Far away from home. I'm not calling you out, I'm genuinely asking because i think that myself and several other players have a different view of this game or are expecting something different to have happened, and it's not fair to you if I feel some way because -I'm- coming from a mistaken view (like i had before writing this). Invariably, the problem of late game playability is going to follow this. exact. topic. I'm trying to get everyone on the same page before we start again. (Glad to see you've had some time to make updates recently, hopefully you don't need 2 jobs anymore! And I hope you're dodging the Corona like a Fat man dodges Cardio!) 1 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
