You keep mentioning these 11 "hardcore gamers" that the server has lost. These so called regular players. Who are they? I can think of a handful off the top of my head but not 11. And as for helping new players, Shootcity, myself and our group, even though we were bandits humanity wise, we spent loads of time and money helping out new players! Giving them a place to live, money, guns ect. Some of which we play with on the regular now on the new server! All of the players that were at the meeting are definite regulars. Name 1 that isn't. The meeting was also at a reasonable hour. "the admins rolling it back and wiping the server was no different to what the hacker did." How does this make sense at all? They rolled it back to allow everyone to have some fun while the new server was being put together. The hacker came on and deleted the bases without warning. The Admins FIXED this issue and allowed us to enjoy ourselves before the wipe. "U only know a small group of people on there, thats why your unaware of alot of other thoughts on the matter, most couldnt be bothered to comment" Iv'e been playing on this server for a couple of months now almost everyday, so i have made myself aware of the regulars to the server. I am unaware of the thoughts of those who rarely come on because i never get a chance to speak to them. And as for most not being bothered to comment, how is that any of the admins fault? Don't complain if you guys "cant be bothered". "Spoon fed comment made me laugh, too easy, what with harder ai missions?" Glad it made you laugh. Yes the harder ai missions would obviously make it harder, even though at the minute i believe the ai missions are perfect difficulty wise. Its the banks at all traders and things like that that make it easier. Takes the risk out of going to the bandit trader or wholesaler. And the missions are pretty spread out? And these "coward kills" you speak of, how will "spreading out" the missions stop this? Just go to a popular mission and wait. Pretty easy. Camping a mission is a bandit thing, hence why i sometimes do it. But it usually ends with me killing the ai and leaving the area so they can get the gear. I just do it for the humanity and the enjoyment of getting long ranged kills. This is a pvp server so you have got to expect to be shot at... And how does me liking the coast spawns and no pook parts in backpack make me want it easier? It means that you cant just run out in the field as bait or kamikaze a player. It makes the game harder. "but u did'nt fix anything as we still lost the lot!" They did fix it? The server was going to get wiped regardless of the hacker. These new rules and format have been for the better of the server, as both myself and my group find it more enjoyable without constantly getting rammed by pooks or having players constantly spawning right next to us. It has also seen the server increase in popularity, even with your "11 hardcore heroes" gone. "U should've implemented those new ideas and format into your lingor island server." The Lingor island server is going to be the "easier" of the servers, being fully militarised with traders and shit everywhere. "no base raiding" Now where is the fun in that?
Anyway no point arguing about it all now. I've been having twice the amount of fun on the new server compared to the old one. Hope your "hardcore hero" friends and yourself enjoy your new server.
