Feedback and Suggestions / Skirmish Content Kickstarter ?
« on: March 16, 2016, 01:22:35 pm »
Guys, many of us state clearly that Skirmish desperately needs new content, most desired being probably maps (at least that's my opinion and impression). The list of desired additional content is long and it seems that we won't get it any soon. Some people actually claim that they would be willing to pay for additional content, because they know Muse's situation. So why not let them?

I will send this to Muse, so the question is here: would you personally pay 1-5$ for a kickstarter for skirmish content? What content would you expect? Is such kickstarter a good idea to you?

Edit: For a promise of new maps I would chip in a buck or two. Also I'm saying kickstarter but devs could have reasons to gather money in different way, for instance through in-game shop. Shop sale where all benefits go towards this goal surely sound nice.

The Lounge / Prove you're oldfag
« on: March 15, 2016, 01:52:32 pm »
Prove you are in GOIO for a long, long time.

Let me give you an example (but I'm not that of an oldfag):

Lobbies of Icarus, flamer not being totally useless, pyra dominance, old levels, daily 4v4 with LeonXross

Feedback and Suggestions / Let's deal with clan invites spam
« on: September 16, 2015, 10:09:28 pm »
Annoying, aren't they?

Some people just REALLY NEED YOU to be in their clan and they flood you with the invites. I think there may be some solutions to this problem:

Easier but less effective:
Set a limiter for clan invites, preferably a person quota (like you can send one particular person no more than X invites for clan Y) or at least a daily or hour quota.

Harder but more effective:
Make a special window for clan invite with option [Reject] or [Ignore]. I imagine it like this:
You get a message about clan invite. You click it and a window appears with a message "Player X have invited you to clan Y" with options for Accept and Reject/Ignore (not sure whether both perhaps) and by choosing the 2nd option game would block any more invites to join this clan.

Feedback and Suggestions / Flying around workaround
« on: September 16, 2015, 10:01:19 pm »
There are some maps where many times people can just float around not meeting each other for a long time. Many times people annoyed with this just say on match chat "We're on B3, come one", although this doesn't work all the time because some people are trolling, others try to put enemy team into a trap and some just don't believe.

So my solution would be a set timer (like a minute) after which the game would show us the general direction of the enemy on the compass (and only on the compass). It can be as vague as basic direction like North, North-West etc.

Possible problem could be limiting sealth play, so perhaps after set time there could be a vote for captains. If more than 50% (or whatever) captains agree then directions would be revealed.

There are also some technical issues that need to be adressed (what if in 3v3 map 2 ships are together and other is on the other side of the map? show "the average" direction? Or show two directions for each group of ships?) but overall I think this is a good idea.

Feedback and Suggestions / Clan leveling awards
« on: September 16, 2015, 09:26:24 pm »
For vets awards like decals and dyes are not very exciting, so throw in your ideas for future clan awards (little birdie told me that this is just a beginning of this system).

My ideas are:
1) Coupon for shop purchases for like 1-2$ to get people hooked up and actually browse the shop even when they didn't want to buy anything (perhaps they will see some cool stuff and change their minds). Also this is great because it gives you a lot of freedom regarding your prize.
2) Most straight-forward and least desired by Devs way of course is to make some outfits, hats etc. availible ONLY through clan leveling (and shop)

Feedback and Suggestions / Report limits - how is this a thing?
« on: September 06, 2015, 07:57:30 pm »

How is this a thing? I was shocked to discover it, recently I've had some long few-hour sessions in GOIO and suddenly, 'poof', I can't report people.

Because, I'm sorry, but if someone is shouting to the microphone or just ignoring all kinds of communications - I report them. And I believe they deserve it and should be dealt with. Perhaps we could raise this threshold a bit.

The Lounge / Describe your nation
« on: September 03, 2015, 10:18:33 pm »
Fun game, describe strenghts and weaknesses of your nation, you have 5 pluses and 3 minuses to give. You may count big features as double plus or double minus. The more stupid and stereotypical it is - the better.

I'll start:


++ Removing kebab/communism
++ Alcohol resistance
+ Cleaning toilets

- Going into space
- Wealth
- Fashion taste

More common than you'd think

Feedback and Suggestions / Improving GOIO - Community features
« on: September 03, 2015, 10:04:20 pm »
inb4 "Devs don't do skirmnish stuff 'cause Alliance"

In the art of war one must recognise his weaknesses and his strenghts and one of GOIO's strenghts is it's great community - GOIO is not only just a game to play but a kind of place where we meet our friends and babble about stuff. Therefore I think it's very important to really grab onto that and improve GOIO's social features. How can we do that?


1. Make clan chat useful!

This has been suggested many times and I put it in the first place because it's easy to do. Make some kind of notification icon or make it work like party chat. Here's some thread about it. I've made mine too a while ago but I can't find it.

2. Clan application message

Mentioned in this thread, it would be nice if officers or at least leader would get some kind of message about clan applications. Perhaps something as simple as game checking it when turned on and message "You have X clan applications pending" would be nice.
Also please fix the clan links

3. Clan alliances ?

This is more of a loose thought, but many times we see clans "allied" or "befriended" with other clans, but this has no impact to the game. What if we could make something cool with it, for instance give every clan like 2-3 slots for allied clans and, I don't know, mark them with some colour* at least? Perhaps give a special chat tab for alliance? Maybe even let them see themselves in a custom matches, although that one can be dangerous, imagine alliance of 3 clans of 40 people and most of them log in during similar time (like saturday evening) - then custom matches become almost like an old server browser. The point is - people don't want to merge clans because they want to stay independent, but it is worth looking for the ways to make clan friendship matter in some way and be reflected in the game.

*I'd imagine that members from allied clan (and from our clan) would have their clantag marked in friend-green colour

4. Give us more room for clan information.


1. Party chat (and not only)

There's no way of telling whether voicechat comes from teamchat, lobbychat or partychat and this is highly annoying, so some resolution to this problem would be nice.

2. Temporary in-lobby mute

Since the smallest (full) lobby contains of 16 people there can be a lot of noise out there and I don't even mean just people shouting "Ready up noob" or shreiking to their microphones, but even when a few people start talking at the same time it gets unpleasant. There is a way for you not to make noise for other people - and this is party chat, but there is no way for temporary cutting-off other people. I don't want to block people, because one - hey, they did nothing wrong really, two - i treat my blocking list as "no no no no no no" list of people. Therefore some kind of temporary mute (for limited time, like 30 sec or just until lobby timer ends) would allow people to actually talk. It has been discussed in this thread

Feedback and Suggestions / Incendiary, Heatsink, Lochnagar
« on: June 26, 2015, 12:06:34 pm »
Looking at Wundsalz glorious guide, I notice that three ammos tend to have very low qualities and usage and those are the ones mentioned in the thread.

We've talked about incendiary in this thread and as I said I think that decreasing rate of fire debuff from -30% to -15% or -10% (test it in DevApp, yo). Perhaps you have any other ideas?

Possible heatsink buff was discussed in this thread and personally I think the best idea would be to increase heatsink firefighting capability, either through more stack decrease or adding some stack decrease after time. Then gunner could be less dependant on engineers at least on extinguishing their guns.

Lochnagar...hmm, that's a pickle. I don't know what to do with that one, but it would be nice to see it as valid choice on more than 2-3 guns.

What do you guys think?

Feedback and Suggestions / Shorter map vote
« on: June 13, 2015, 09:11:19 am »
Since many captains don't choose their loadouts and ships before map is chosen, I suggest shortening map vote time by 10-15 seconds. If you don't want to shorten the time in the lobby, add those 10-15 seconds to the lobby timer.

Feedback and Suggestions / Shortcut for blocking?
« on: June 13, 2015, 09:05:45 am »
We all like time, do we?
We all like blocks, do we?

Especially during sales we block A FREAKING LOT of people and having to click on the nick, choose block from the list and then click again is annoying.
Since this is the most useful feature of GOIO, I suggest having some kind of shortcut for blocking using one click. Like [Shift] + left click on the nick.

General Discussion / There's this thing called "The Signal Tower"
« on: June 10, 2015, 06:45:53 pm »
"This is the spot to announce streamed events, share your gameplay videos and channel info, and discuss tools and tips." as description says. Stop spamming your videos on General Discussion thread.

Feedback and Suggestions / Clan Page, make links work
« on: June 07, 2015, 12:38:44 pm »
Many times people put link to their steam group or other clan forum on their clan page, but you can't just click on the link for it to work and you can't either mark and copy the link. Some fix would would be nice.

Q&A / Chat commands?
« on: June 06, 2015, 10:27:41 pm »
Where can I find chat commands? I found out by pure accident that /r = respond = write back PM to the person who PM'd you last.

Feedback and Suggestions / Clan Application Message
« on: June 06, 2015, 09:53:02 pm »
As an officer I had a situation that I didn't know someone applied up until he actually told me. I'd like a notification to be given to all officers when someone is applying, ideally notification that you would get even if someone applied when you were online.

Sth like, you log in, game checks the applications and notifies you about all, and then about every new that happen when you're online.

Edit: If we're at it - some kind of notification or sound when somebody writes on clan chat PLEASE
