The Love - Hate Thread.
« on: March 19, 2015, 11:21:42 am »
What are some of the things in GoIO that you absolutely hate–that you might leave the game for? What kinds of things are awesome enough to keep you here day after day? Be descriptive. Maybe tell a story or two.

For me:

Hate  >:( How appealingly overpowered Carronades are. Not only because of their direct damage, but also because of their ability to increase crew ineffectiveness by constantly pulling engineers away from other tasks. Also, the people that don't use mics. It can be a bit frustrating at times.

Love  :) The wonderfully humorous crowd of GoIO. The atmosphere of the game creates an environment in which people's humor can be the only thing keeping us all sane when the explosions are recking the hull and a flamer is setting everything alight. Also, the dedicated dev team working to satisfy every member of the community to the best of their ability. I've only been here for a few weeks, and already I can see how caring the Muse team is. It appears to me that GoIO is their baby–their only baby, and that makes me happy. I can rest comfortably knowing that I can come back to a game each day that is still watched over and worked on.

Hate: 100% Unrealistic Airships. In real life these things could never even glide.

Love: Interesting Airship structures. The Mobula may be unrealistic as can be, but it's a super fun take on Zeppelins.

Haha, true! But I love how ridiculous it is. I think that is what makes it enjoyable. The idea of just finding some old pirate ship and hooking a giant balloon on it sounds absolutely ineffective. But who cares! It looks wonderful.

Couldn't agree more.

I agree with you goggles.
The carronade should be effective at killing balloons like it does now, but the constant engine kill and gun kills are just making the weapon the best solution to counter 80% of the game.

my hate: I hate players who doesnt listen.

my love: players who listen

some more content relevant. fucking love spires and mobulas

Yeah, I just wonder what ship they would make the beginner ship if they nerved it.

Love: The *thonk* sound and feel of a heavy flak killing a target. MMmmmm.

Hate: Getting stuck with a second gunner in the middle of the game and refuses to change.

Oh man, agree to both of those points.

H.Flak = Most satisfying gun in the entire game.  It handles well, the effects are great, and dear lord does it FEEL like you're firing a shell full of muderous death.

It's the reason I play gunner. One of the things that keeps me playing is the genuine feel and sounds of the guns. The *thonk* of the heavy flack, the explosions from the hwatcha, the *thomp thomp thomp* of the mortar... even the reload sounds are really awesome.
