Feedback and Suggestions / Re: Match ends are jarring

I double checked, and was wrong about it being in Pirate Deathmatch. It also does not show the final kill.

Feedback and Suggestions / 1v1, yea or nay?

The question of 1v1 lobby size has once again come up. With the addition of Brawl (2v2v2v2), we do have an easier mechanic that can be used to 'downsize' an existing map with an alternate score. This uses another map, and adds an alternate kill count for lower number of ships. For example, if you were to start a 1v1 of Dunes, it would say '5 kills' in the lobby, but would switch to 3 kills on entering the match.

This would use all existing 2v2 Deathmatch maps as is.

If you downsize from a 2v2 to the 1v1 via the Start Match button, the lobby will be permanently converted to a 1v1. There is no current way to upscale a lobby.

The other option is to create all new versions of each map, catered to 1v1. These would be smaller chunks of each map that would be better suited for single ship combat. Dunes Ribs, for example, which is just the 3x3 grid around the rib-like structure in the SE second of Battle on the Dunes. Downsizing from larger lobbies should still work, though. These will take more time and work, and need a unique map region and map image created for them.

We have talked to the coders and have it on the tracker for investigation. The delay is still in Pirate Deathmatch, so might be an unintentional change that came with the addition of AI Directors. Will keep you updated.

Yes. Sorry, that is how it is listed in the data. It is translated to easier consumption in the Library now.

Cooldown = time between bullets

Cooldown x (number of shots - 1) = RoF in shots per second.

Shots per second is 7.25. (well, 7.246 and some change, but likely over 7.25 due to server tics.)

Rough comparison of boss ships to Goldfish at 400 meters.

Just in case you missed the scale comparison in the lower right:

HamsterIV hits the nail on the head. There is no one to blame for driving people away from the game. People drift away naturally due to the way the game itself plays. The core mechanics are vastly different than what people are used to, and only hook a small number of total new players.

The only way to stop this is to change the core game in a very significant way. Then it would be a different game.

Your account was likely auto-verified. This is often done during high player intake.

Gameplay / Re: Best Ammo for each Gun

For Aten, the mechanics make for odd ammo pairings.

It has two mechanics that need to be accounted for.

1. Charge time. This is the amount of SET time before the shots reach full damage. Ammos do not change this time. The current stats are 0.5 acceleration (per second) and 4 max. This means the Aten will reach full damage afer 8 seconds.

2. Falloff. Falloff starts at 300m and tapers off to 0 at max range of 1500m. This means you will be doing 50% damage at 900m.

The damages are Piercing on direct, and Fire on secondary (this comes in play in a bit).

Depending on what you want to do, this opens up several ammo options.

Greased: Not good for anything but starting fires. It dumps too much ammo before it reaches max power, and reduces the range for falloff. Greased removes most of your damage potential.

Lesmok: Good for increasing range of damage. In this case, it is not the max range you want to increase, but the Falloff start and end range. Lesmok will push the falloff start to 510m.

Extended Mag: Good for increased long term damage. With the extended fire time due to lowered rof and extra ammo, Mag will have more fully charged shots after the 8 second charge time.

Burst: What? Is he crazy? No, actually. Burst has a lowered ROF, and increased AOE damage. While this lowers the primary Piercing damage output, it increases the Fire damage output and puts more shots after the 8 second charge time. Fire is almost equal to Flechette vs Balloon. If you want a gun that will put constant pressure on the enemy balloon, Burst Aten is an odd but valid choice in some builds, and will break balloons faster than any other ammo.

Heatsink is ok if if you try to use it close range fast brawling, but you really shouldn't be since there are better guns for that, like the Banshee.
