Feedback and Suggestions / Medium Weapons, Anyone?
« on: October 18, 2013, 09:58:51 am »
I am not the most experienced player, but the more I play, the more I appreciate Light weaponry over Medium ones. In my humble and maybe incorrect opinion, their little clips, loading time, slow projectiles and general clumsiness in movement and firing arcs for only slightly superior damage is a bad compromise. It is even moreso since they now recoil so much when firing them. Give them a Spire, and most gunners will prefer manning the light weapon on top instead of the clumsy beast below.

Also, Medium gun emplacement have like three times less choice for outfitting them. What's missing in this category, is a quick-firing, short-to-medium range weapon, reasoneably accurate, that either has a good magazine or a shorter reload. Something like a quad Gatling, or a quick-firing harpoon Ballista. Anything, really, to make them even desirable.

I would be glad to hear some of the vets' comments and tips about Medium weaponnery.

PS - I know there must have been some threads around this subject, but I didn't feel like necroposting anything past the first two pages.

Feedback and Suggestions / Please, Remove Profle's Leave Count

Yes. the game disconnects a lot - but I can live with that. I know it happens a lot, and I know the Muses guys are working hard on this, but there's little to do; the problem can come from sources they don't control, such as Steam or my internet provider/hook-up. Good luck and keep up the excellent work, guys.

What I can't live with, however, is the fact that a disconnection makes the Leave Count go up by one, no matter how hard you try to re-connecting. It happenned again this morning: I must have re-connected about 12 times in a single game, to find myself unable to do anything on the ship and disconnected again. I kept on re-trying this ordeal just to keep my leave Count from going up, and failed.

Now, as a result, I've got a stat on my profile that basically says "this guy ratted out on his team 2 times". As a result of the result, I hesitate to play this game, that I love and bought as soon as it was out.

My suggestion? remove the Leave Count - or make it a confidential stat, viewable only by the player. Please.

Thanks in advance.
