My opinion, is to start over in OE - what did we have 30-50%+ of the good planets taken?
And it would be more interesting to new players, if we didn't overwhelm them.
Besides, I gave all my money away, and had 4 of my best ships destroyed during the
shut down period in OE Rolling Eyes

Special hello to MG - miss those gummies Very Happy

Ha - I destroyed or damaged beyond repair literally everything I owned.

A point that Steve made to me that makes so much sense is that without the XP being reset whoever can get the cash fastest can be in a HC craft and basically be a pain in the ass pirate that would stunt the game growth. We need to get back to square one where the game can take on a logical progression and cohesion as it starts to mature.

Full reset,

I think I'm gonna vote for a restart as well, looking at it in the long term it will be good for the game, besides Hcout will be heavy class and running Garroon in a week, so theres nothing to worry about.

I just got the mogwee app on my phone so how to I contact people... I have a hangout called Thoths pit that needs filling... Can't seem to search for groups. What's wrong with palringo? We have an OE group there.

I am back.

Post  That Brandon on Mon Apr 09, 2012 8:32 pm

Yes, i am back and coding already. I have a four day weekend this coming weekend and plan to get a lot accomplished by next monday. I will be posting up some possible ideas tonight that I want your input on.

So it is known now, I will not have a player account moving forward. This means I will rely on you all to report anything out of the ordinary as quickly as possible. It is very critical during the testing phase that we find all the little loop holes, tricks, etc that were in the previous version and any new ones we introduce as we update, refine, and streamline the codebase. We are all adults here (at least by age, except for Ray.) and I want to start off on the correct foot. Any hurt feelings, diagreements, etc that may have happened previously are in the past. We all love this game and want to see it survive and thrive. I am going to be doing development for OE from now on, I will be putting all my extra and spare time into making this game the best it can be. I need you all to help me by being our QA team, helping the new players, testing on different devices once we get it working for mobile browsers, etc. The family that makes up this game is why we were able to make it last in the past. A fresh start can bring that family feeling back and allow everyone to enjoy their time in the OE universe.

Thanks,

Brandon

PS I am also on twitter, @bsanspree I will accept your follows as they come in, as I have gotten a lot of spam accounts of late.

Great to see you Brandon! I'm excited for the return of OE and am completely willing to help improve the game so that it can stay around for awhile.

Are you a user? If you aren't you might not be able to find him. I'm a user and I found him without a problem.

@refminor or @dr_whiteface (although he is currently retired in terms of OE, I can't really top his antics so he is spending his last few million in a high class brothel on Cinnhilif prime)

As to the ideas about some reward for returning vets - I kind of like the MCC1 idea, perhaps give us a Jav. Freighter or a Frigate?

It needs a full wipe with no benefits IMO, you can't start the game fresh and give one lot of people an advantage, we already have some knowledge which gives us an edge, but if I started MC with a freighter I would be snaffling up as many of the good resources around GVT as I could before those pesky new players we need to survive in the long run get a chance to claim a stake. People would always refer to it "Devs favour the vets" "different rules for them" it's just a slow poison in the game and all to save us playing a game we are supposed to love.

I agree with Ref, that if this is a new game, everyone should start from the same baseline, and i am sure that the return player will be able to grind up so much faster than newer ones that they think we cheat, lol

however, i am sure, between now and go live date, we will be able to think up something for Paul to consider, for example, maybe some free time for the return players, etc. (just my 2 cents, doesn't mean Paul agree with this yet)
