  1. I'd pay a 5 year sub if LO placed all of Aroa's ideas in the trash can along with all their accounts.
  2. Ok we get it it. No one has paid you any attention since FE shut down, so now you show your true Trump supporter mantra. We get it, but still don't care. If you feel so disappointed with Little Orbit. Log out. Delete all your accounts and never look at this forum again. Don't think anyone would mind if you did.
  3. Of course the player base was HUGE, MASSIVE even. It rivaled other games like WoW. So many players that the servers couldn't handle the influx of players online and that there were queues to get into game at its height of popularity. (can you read the sarcasm?) There were queues because the server couldn't handle a few thousand players. Hell I was told by some whom played from the begining, there were times the servers couldn't handle a few hundred players. A few thousand players is not that many when you consider there are millions of gamers out there. FE while unique and loved by most that played it did not interest the majority of gamers overall. Which is OK because that made the game more special to the devoted players of FE. It is not a game that would ever be popular to the masses because it does not offer instant gratification and requires a considerable amount of time to play and achieve anything (eg: crafting, gathering). Those stating this do not hate FE as some imagine, but live in reality. You can love a game but realise its short comings.
  4. There is or at least was a community discord for FE that became so toxic that a lot of players refused to use it and LO left it. You have the forums and FB for updates. Don't need anything else since in reality LO doesn't have much to share.
  5. Ok so there will be about 30 or if you are lucky 40 players in total online. That is 99.9% of FE population before it shut down right? WOW!!! That makes it totally worth while having 2 servers. FE never had enough population to require 2 servers before it went offline, not even at its peak. It won't require 2 if it makes it back. It just isn't a game that is that popular with the majority of gamers. It wasn't boring because they had many alts or because they could grind to 55 in a few days. It was boring because FEs end game was very, very lacking. Raising lvl cap 100 isn't going to stop people having alts. It would actually drive some players away. It would also mean an increase in alts because of people requiring many more to go into certain areas that are lvl capped (if the game stayed the same as before). You really didn't think of that did you?
  6. I agree. Keeping FE exactly the same but with better eye candy will not entice new players, considering the mass appeal of newer games out there. Reducing the content of FE will not bring in masses of players either. FE was unique and only ever had a small player base. Some will disagree but in comparison to other online games, FEs player base was always small. At its peak only a few thousand compared to hundreds of thousands in other games. It wasn't popular for a reason. It was never a game that gave instant gratification, which many gamers like. Wish LO luck in finding a balance in keeping the old but introducing the new. Not always easy to do.
  7. For those that believe something should be up for them to play now I ask what your experience in programming is? You seem to have such broad knowledge on how to fix FE that you must of worked on many, many games to know that in such a short period of time LO should have completed work on a couple of sectors. Just to give you something to do in your down time. Your knowledge of Icarus must be astounding to know without a doubt how easy it will be for LO to port the game over to a new engine. You must of seen the current state of the coding and figured out exactly what must be done. Please in your wisdom show us the extent of your knowledge of things obviously none of us have ever considered. Tell us all how to fix the issues in technical terms to prove you really know anything (because of course we all know those crying for things now, this very instance are clueless on this matter). Stop getting your panties into knots. Sit back and wait like good little children. FE will get back online 'IF' and 'WHEN' LO can solve the issues they have encountered and not before, no matter how many times you stamp your little feet.
  8. For some people yes it does matter, to the point if most of their items/collections are gone they feel there is no reason to start over as it took years to accumulate what they have. Some items where bought from marketplace so people want to know if the items they paid cash for will be transferred over. Which is fair enough to ask and want. There are positives and negatives for both sides of the 'start over' argument but ultimately we all have to wait and see what happens to FE in the future.
  9. Don't forget to give everyone a friendly bash over the head. You do it with such fun :)
  10. Well I have to disagree with this as I never went into PVP zones on first toon due to having no clue on how to PVP, but I did lvl well without defense towns. Never actually went to one until I was in Deadfall. Doing all the quests and crafting all the time got me to 55 without ever stepping into the PVP zones or spending hours in a defense town. Nor did I have commanders. I didn't even go into Dome to lvl until my 2nd toon was lvl50. I think people just tried to rush to 55 without truly exploring all FE had to offer the PVE player. The PVE rewards do suck though. Wish it had been addressed years ago...
  11. But if you don't come back (if that is ever a possibility) who will I compete with over who has the most toons?
  12. Thanks Matt and LO for letting us all know. Good luck with the revamp.
  13. https://fallenearth.fandom.com/wiki/Scrap_Lead Large amounts of scrap lead means lots and lots of ammo making duh!!!!
  14. Well now you have time to prepare, you're welcome
  15. If you consider logical thinking as toxic and banter between like minded individuals as an issue perhaps single player games are better for you. If you post something on the forums you have to be prepared that others may have different opinions or ideas to your own. LO bought a game that is old, bugged, a complete mess, has a dying population. I'm always amazed they still keep the game running considering the fact it is costing them money to do so as the income derived from the game doesn't even cover costs, as LO has stated before. If you bother to check older posts of mine you will find many ideas put forth. In the old forums there were even more ideas. Eric is a good friend of mine and known to help players in need of assistance. If you have issues with Eric that has nothing to do with me but my guess would be you both had different ideas on a topic and your negative feelings have progressed from there. Perhaps you could try and speak to each other as adults, listening to each others points of view and respecting them. Even if you do not agree with someone you can still learn to get along. Name calling is rarely productive.
  16. A lot of the very nice players that have played FE or are still in FE (the very few there is) often only played FE because it was free. Many have stated if they had to pay to play they would never of done so. Many of these free players have contributed to FE marketplace through either subs or the occasional purchase over the years. Making people pay to play would decrease the already non existent player base even more and would stop others from even considering trying FE in the future. From a business prospective it would be detrimental to the income derived from FE. This would reduce player numbers considerably, thus reducing possible income even more. Making marketplace items non tradeable would effect the economy of the game and profits from the marketplace as there wouldn't be an incentive for those able to buy items in bulk to sell to other players in game. This has been a part of FE's economy for as long as I can remember. Having a stable game, engaging content, events, new items in the marketplace would do more than reducing the maps, making it pay to play and making all marketplace items non tradeable.
  17. It doesn't take a year to max all crafting on a character. Can be done in roughly a month or so if you are really organised. I have several max crafters and didn't spend much time doing them all. Leveling crafting is a great way to passively level your toon. But hey, only a person with experience in FE would know this.
  18. Hmmm hard to pick an answer there. How about you choose and we will all agree you are right.
  19. You always get trolls regardless how small the community is and those that like to believe they are better than everyone and no rules apply to them. I'd say stay away from PVP unless you want to be killed constantly by those that love to cheat. Just play the PVE side and find yourself a decent group of like minded people to enjoy the game with. Only put money into FE if you are comfortable spending money with little return. The game isn't being updated, etc so all you will be getting is a few boosts and crafting queues. Most of all enjoy the game, take your time and don't worry so much about reaching 55 as fast as you can. End game content is still meh.
  20. Ever looked at your 'Joined date'? It is 2013. Which means by your logic you were not in FE when it was 'popular' either. As I've stated before, you cannot go by the join dates on the forums as they do not necessarily align with the correct starting date of a person playing FE. As I've said before, I've played longer than my join date, have over 20k hrs in FE (shameful I know) but am far from an expert. Just an avid gamer that happens to like FE. FE was never really popular. It never had 100k players. Its peak when it hit Steam was 1k players. That isn't popular. Only a fool would think otherwise... The older players that have been in FE since 2009 would tell me stories of having to queue for ages just to get into FE and if more than a few hundred players were online (if that) the servers would crash. But that was way back in the beginning. The player base in FE has always been on the small scale for an mmo, admittedly it is now at its worst as far as player numbers go. Who is this Ronnie you speak of?
  21. Are you going to pay for them to quit and start over? Do you realise the costs involved? It isn't as simple as some would like to think.
  22. Way past the line for moderation? So someone speaking their mind and a different ideal to those that constantly make sure their blinkers are on tight need to be moderated? FE was never a very popular game. Can't deny that fact. All good things must come to end. Another fact. Just because someone can see that a game that doesn't make enough money to even cover its costs, is nothing more than a money pit, regardless of how much they love the game, shows they actually have working synapses. Some are glad FEs lights are still on, others realise that things will never improve greatly. It doesn't make sense to invest in a game that would be lucky to get several hundred players (it would be a miracle at this point). Do as one of my friends once stated "enjoy it while it lasts, as nothing lasts forever" and remember to look back fondly upon the good times had when the lights eventually go out for good.
  23. I think most of the players left are glad the lights are still on and happy any company would take the sinking boat of FE and put any effort into it. But as to my previous concerns about GMs it was very disheartening to have you state once Matt certain people would never, ever be GMs only to find out they were. At least they are not now
  24. Gotta the censorship on this forum. If it wasn't for some people quoting others you would never know it was happening. So I guess the announcement you are after has been the deletion of yet more stuff that was pretty tame from these forums
  25. Maybe you didn't get the memo but there isn't much of a difference between the figures of male/female gamers. You might be surprised to learn a lot of female gamers pretend to be males because they hate the sexism online. So when nearly half of your players are female it doesn't make sense to sell dental floss. We want our characters to look sexy, tough, empowering, like a fluffy bunny if that's what you are into. Not like they are only on show for perverts (well most of us want that, there are exceptions). Plus we are not talking armor just underwear that btw we don't buy. Games with better customization have full cover panties but huge range of clothing that doesn't look anything like armor. There is huge choice in how you dress your character, unlike FE. Got to admit we are pretty limited in this game.
