I still belief the bigger issue will be the limited amount of damager gear, while everyone will have at least La China. And with the162 resistance it gives there will be the additional challenge to level up enough to make at least a scratch.
what difference does it make if there are many sets damage or not, if each fort has 70% in defense and 30 in attack ....

I propose to get together and arrange a demonstration - NO CORTINA ON DOTD in the world M
FWIW I have asked if it's technically feasible and, while I don't have a definitive response, what I have seen is that, no, it is not possible to block cortina from any normal world -- the chests they come in are standardized across all worlds and markets, and the tombolas those chest come from are likewise standardized.

(even blocking union or spirit is a global decision -- either all worlds/markets will get those sales or none of them will)

More importantly: to whatever extent it MAY be possible, it's not a decision The West International Team can make, only ask with little to no expectation it would be approved.

Can't you add set bull to DOtd chests?
in the end, change the parameters of sets that have advantage in attack or defense.
problems on ff started when they added sets that have an advantage in attack or defense

something needs to be done with this problem.

I see 0 chance that happens when it's going to be in the christmas sale anyway... by the time FFing starts in earnest on Montana there will be lots of the current ~balance of FF gear in place and the caps should be set to match the meta

The game is built for playing at high levels - tombola sets made it so and level-based shop gear exaggerated the fact - and the physical (or i guess digital) contents of the tombolas aren't set up in a way that is viable on new worlds. They just don't think about the consequences of their actions when setting tombola prize pools.

Are there any duelling sets in DotD? at least maybe some folk like Vic can have a good time with the *******ised shop clothes and early duelling.

Forts don't seem like they'll be any fun with modern tank sets and nothing to damage them.. perhaps forts will end up with a hard cap of 100 vs 65 or something. I fully expect a premium town to dominate forts with no one to oppose and balance it... Again. Anyone with the potential to build an opposition is likely focussed on Colorado and the effect the level cap has had there.

If I know anything about adventures, it's that you'll get shouted at for not being a high level account and daring to join an adventure.


Can anyone even be bothered with a race to 250 when noone has a main account at max level yet?
Does anyone realise that there's thousands of accounts trapped on dead worlds that open year upon year upon year, to be forgotten about when the next world opens?

They'll keep opening worlds, keep killing your old worlds and keep wasting your time if you keep joining new worlds that we as a player-base simply can't support...
We used to have to open 2 worlds at a time, there were that many players... Now the newest world has a smaller player-base than one that opened in 2011 - the previous world before that is already in, what I would consider, an emergency situation with a lack of active accounts.

Why not just have a world that re-sets every DotD, instead of opening new ones and losing half the playerbase of the previous world?
Why not just have a world that we can migrate characters from dead worlds into, to try and make a new vibrant fort world with all the dead accounts?

The best solution is to unplug the game and let it sink , the game will die in maximum 5 years anyway ( I might be generous as well )

0 efforts to fix PVP issues

0 efforts on listening to feedback ( at least 80% of the time )

Producing a massive update without ever thinking about the PVP aspects first ( sure yay new content, let's see who farms more carrots before they introduce a new recipe that requires carrots to make a carrot cake )

New worlds every single year without thinking about old and forgotten worlds with many trapped players wanting to get out and play normally AGAIN.

Here are some solutions:

Merge all worlds together and make it 1 big world , if you have a character in other worlds , get all your items moved to a character that is your main main.

Stop producing new worlds ( before dotd at least ) if you produce a new world make it after Dotd just before Xmas or during Pumpkin hunt.

Focus on PVP aspects, PVE will not take this game front , the vast majority of revenue the game has is from players that enjoy PVP , why would I waste money so I can farm more carrots or build a church 24/7 non stop , what's the fun in that?

Listen to the feedback that the players give you , those players keep your game alive if you don't listen to almost nothing they say it's clear more and more players will get frustrated and will end up leaving the game. Feedback is the most essential think about the relationship of the Game developers and player community, if there's none , why bother play in the first place?


This is not a bash to the Mods and the support team , it's more of a bash to the actual developer who has no idea what PVP means and is a PVE specialist. True and sad story.

i like new worlds but since most people spend nuggets on the dotd chest it's impossible to have a good start without spending or begging people for gear

when in doubt, pick what's safest. no matter what game makers and staff do, somebody's gonna have a problem with it, if for no other reason, than to say they have a problem with it.

thanks for holding this thing up as long as you have, people do say it, but we could stand to say it more often, you are appreciated. same day same stuff, but i'll be there.

cheers

why then they block lucille sale on new worlds so easily (well, it was in past years) Last year in Vegas, the lucille sale was available by mistake, this error was removed in half an hour ... what is so difficult with cortina?

Because mods can manually add/remove items to the SHOP, but cortina is in a chest's reward pool which is available worldwide and would require 1)a developer to remove it, and 2) that means the strongest tank set wouldn't be available for anyone on any world.

Also glad some of you are ignoring my pleas not to fall for the same trap again and again, have your fun for 3 months, and we'll be back here in a year's time I guess.

well, what are you waiting for? that new players will register in Colorado? who doesn't have account there about level 150 and above, why would they?
also, not everyone likes to play in the old world, where there is no longer any incentive, even if they are offered to move there from another world
colorado is a narrow world of people who have already been there before

there are many who like to start all over again in equal conditions, and not play against monsters who are 5 6 years old
that's why I want to play in good conditions at the start of a new world

i'm not against colorado, but you shouldn't scream about bad new worlds and so on in every topic

I actually agree with you though, I always looked forward to a fresh start when the game was competitive...

It's just that it's kind of pointless because our player-base can't support new worlds anymore, and each new world also kills (what was left of) the previous. I want the opportunity for fresh starts without leaving a trail of dead accounts in its wake. A re-setting world and a migrations world would solve soooooo many of this games self inflicted issues.
If I don't "scream" about the obvious ways to do things better, I'm not sure who's left that would.

Gg to the dev team who picked up the same name of the world opened in 2022 where I'm already playing on the-west.fr

Next time don't act like you want the forum to participate when it's always the weird dude in the back of your office who pick this name each time he sees it

+ have fun they will ruin the start because this weird dude like Montana like he like Money, everything with a M
