    tetra got a reaction from joaopaulo1511 in What does -ELITE- mean on the player screens in webportal?   
    Despite having the title, I agree with Leigh that "-ELITE-" is probably not the best choice of words, I'm not sure of q better one though. "DONOR" probably doesn't help silver & co as mych, changing to officer (as opposed to current enlisted) ranks might work... But I don't know what kinda damage that could do with the extra 100 levels thing in the votable topics gadge' made.

    tetra reacted to matwonk in Blue Server changes FAQ   
    Silver, you mentioned in a blog that there are levels beyond 150, is it safe to say there is no level limit anymore or is that for us to discover?
    Another question, I'm not sure if I'm the only one noticing this but it seems like bot decay doesn't work against Zone Assault bots.
    I've hit two players I know have been inactive for well over 6 months but my attack had the same effect it did yesterday before the update. However I did notice against Deflection bots I am getting 2x the kill power.
    Also in response to decontaminatoR.
    Paid gaming isn't just something for adults. When I was 13 the best options for handheld gaming was GameBoy or GameGear and the games at the time cost anywhere between $29-$39 dollars. I had a paper route to pay for my games. So, no offense, but you can afford $0.99 for a game. You don't even need a paper route, just check under your couch cushions and I'm sure you'll find a few quarters.

    Regional cross faction alliances(as opposed to local rgp balkanization player<>player treaties really screw with the game & eventually take out the region as they either become a victim of their own success or the last remaining targets shrug & go patriot together (as happened in the cel controlled majority of us:fl ~ a year back)

    tetra got a reaction from LastGhost in another 200 levels?   
    "In the next blog post we will share some new additions to bots and energy" got posted in http://blog.qonqr.com/post/123052714177/new-levels based on that & the one before it, it looks like some(?) of my fingers crossed jumping up & down predictions were off by at least a little if not more.
    Without knowing what yesterday's blog post considers "mid core" its tough to make predictions.
    I'm a bit concerned that it mentions upgrades that make the strong stronger not being too common & being front loaded in the 100+ levels... But at the same time, I can think of a lot if cool upgrades that would be pretty cool while (I think?) meeting that goal. Dom that spring to mind :
    • the ability to deploy cloud based launches from your bases
    • to do that from other peoples bases
    • regardless of who controls it without needing anything of your own present.
    • the ability to let others deploy from -my- bases with remote cloud based deployments
    As an unabashed patriot on the far end of the Florida peninsula, those sorts of things could certainly contribute to "reputation", but my situation isn't exactly the norm.
    At just a few points from SM, I can't imagine more ranks improving "reputation" given current mechanics.
    Given the initial crickets thus thread ill just leave it there & wait for the next blog post

    I must start with an announcement: Camels are not the only animal in the middle east. You have overused it already. It's saddens me that anyone would still find it funny. Get a bit of originality.
    For anyone not wanting to read all this drivel, skip to the end (hint: Bold stuff).
    At what point have I bullied anyone? When was the last aggressive or threatening message you or any of your members received from me? Never.
    Legion and Swarm (in the UK) have teamed up because Faceless are dominating in London. That makes sense. It's a three sided fight and if one force becomes too powerful, the other two can join forces to try and take them down. But: We are dominating in the London area while your alliance is attacking players outside of that area. Then you expect me to sit back and do nothing. You are specifically using me as an excuse for why you have teamed up but then you're attacking players outside of my reach, sometimes with Europe involved.
    If that is not reason enough to attack you then I'm not sure what is.
    You lot cube, multiscope and have multi faction accounts and still complain. I don't complain about anything you do. Play the way you want to, ill do the same.
    I am never rude to anyone, always polite no matter what the message is, never brag about what I do, can do or have done, never threaten anyone, try and keep in touch with the few swarm or legion who are civilised to me, listen to any message form any side and if I can help in any way, I try my best to. Formed agreements with enemy (that I didn't need to) that ended up slapping me in the face. I have even in the past taken the time to find out who some of the younger players are so I know to avoid them. When I'm in a different country I try and find who the bullies are. Those players who threaten and brag and laugh at others. Those are my targets (if they exist in those areas). I don't see how anyone can think I'm a bully.
    Is it your money? Its none of your business how I spend it. Either way your numbers are way off. 700 dollars a day? Did you just decide to blindly strike the number pad to come up with that figure?
    Best part of one of your posts is saying that the devs should worry about my welfare. What concerns you about me spending my money? Maybe I'll self harm due to overspending? I wont have enough to buy food because I bought too many cubes? I don't understand what they are supposed to worry about. I have issues? At what point did you deduce this oh mighty psychologist? Wait a minute are you my bank account manager? What do you know about how much I can or cant afford? Random guy spends money on something he enjoys. The end. Told you last time to give up on all the drama but I guess thank you for the concern.
    You play to make me spend more? And? What do you think that accomplishes? In fact how do you even make me spend? You don't even attack me. You sulk when I'm in the UK and when I fly out and you find out, you call in Europe to help you take an zone or two. As they say, whatever floats your boat.
    As for Atlantis: Please try again. I quit Atlantis when we were winning. I have on occasion involved myself after I was asked to help out but on the whole I give it a miss. The last time (months ago) was the last 10 minutes of Atlantis and Legion fought hard. We lost. I was not the only Faceless player to quit Atlantis. Quite a few of us thought it lasted too long and had too many zones to fight over. I hear the duration has been reduced.
    You can't honestly believe I changed my sleeping pattern for the game. I was in California for a month. I was jet lagged. My sleeping pattern was a bit off when I got back. You're not even accurate about when I deploy. Pay attention. You should know this by now: I play as and when I want, sometimes every 20 minutes and sometimes I do long stretches and sometimes I'm busy and don't deploy for hours.
    You wont always win, and nor will I. Try and get satisfaction form at least trying to win or putting up a good fight.
    About the limit on cubing. Please. I suggested that last year. Twice. Unfortunately multiscoping is allowed and so prevalent that it kind of ruins the idea.
    These are the facts: YOU and YOUR side threatened Faceless members who support London. One of the members threatened is actually London based. What do you expect him to do while his city is under attacked? A few of your members don't know when to keep quiet. They sent messages to us threatening specific players and telling them their zones will be dropped just because they have helped London. Basically if they help London then they get their zones wiped. And you have the cheek to call me a bully? We stood up to your members specifically because they were trying to bully. That is the reason we went strong months ago and took those big zones. How is this me bullying you? This is me answering your threats. I didn't attack those zones "just because i can", it's just because I should. Because of your threats. You can blame your members for the loss of those 2 or 3 big zones.
    These are the basics: You attack one of our zones. We look at the list of attackers and pick one of the players who deployed the most, find a zone of his or hers and attack it. We don't need to justify our attacks with "because there are Faceless players within 30 miles". What, every time we attack a zone we need to send some letter explaining why? You attack us or we attack you, for any reason. That's the game.
    When some of you were cheating and you could not win you complained, when you cube and lose you complain, when you invite all of Europe to attack and win you still complain. I just think you like to make a fuss.
    Last words (for now): You think I attack zones as a means of getting attention? I get enough of it form your threads. The only attention seeker here is you with your victim attitude and pity us posts.

    tetra got a reaction from dings90 in Gold Status and Atlantis   
    @dings90 while its true that it was something people went for before... Take my local area
    • a statewide alliance between green/purple (they quit being swarm/faceless when they started stomping on swarm/faceless who said no while looking the other way when their allies started attacking their former faxtionmates.).
    • due to geographic isolation of the 400+ mile long peninsula, there was no outside parties who could be included in resistance.
    • this continued until they forced remaining swarm/faceless to accept the truce or die alone & quit.
    • legion got fed up and went merc, nearly every one of them in fact.
    • fast forward a year from there and there are massive towers built by members of the alliance that quit playing long ago after becoming victims of their own success.
    • smashing newbies before they establish gives almost trivial gold status.. Especially in area where someone has cleared out enough towers for them to even consider getting zone caps one day.

    tetra got a reaction from Strateg1st in "gold status"... eh?   
    Leigh hits the remaining nail on the head. I can pound a zone day in & day out leaving tens f thousands if shockwaves begin to die in 1-2 missiles from an ally as a merc to be.. But those tens of thousands of kills at 50-100:1 would count the same as 5:1 seeker:missile... Which is the same as a 1:1-3(scope& oattacker deployed support wiggling things a bit) against those zones Leigh describes with full support/lattice & heavy fortifications....
    Want kill bot awards?... Snipe seekers/shock & unfortified zones
    - want gold status?... See above
    - want to topple fullyfortified massive zones?... Pfft forget about all those.

    tetra got a reaction from rocco in Has Qonqr lost its luster?   
    Some good points all around. The natural environment breeds a couple possible situations in any given active area
    -the active players come to a stalemate where towers just get larger and larger to avoid devolving into pointless flipping.... As ac result, newer players are faced with insurmountable obstacles to establish anything & have trouble convincing any of the involved parties to break the stalemate with them.
    - one faction wtfpwns the other two & stagnates out of existence
    -two factions team up against the wtfpwning faction & eventually become an orobus malignantly growing until it's funneling virtually all newbies into itself/out of Qonqr and has the same malignant stalemate situation as the first if it maintains cohesion long enough past flipping the table to drive the third faction's players into isolation through player attrition.
    I think that the long time permanent rank penalty exacerbated some of those problems to an extent.... Yes it changed recently, but it's effects still linger.vchanging factions out of a malignant situation can be extremely painful too right now fir a would be defector:
    - the bot loss is a total nonissue compared to the rest... With 43,164,830 bots destroyed by my switch I can pretty safely say that without much debate considering most of them were with full support/lattice & significant divert..
    - having to drive around and move bases away from 21 [old color] ones is a huge pain, but thrle loss of roadtrip/vacation planted bases in far off safe zones really hurts & is what can sting most... Doubly so if your switching to an underrepresented faction or to break a malignant cross faction orobus' truce (or try).
    Qonqr needs both"builder" type players aas well as "destroyer" types, but there needs to be some checks to eventually curb either type from becoming a malignant force in an area:
    - if the destroyer types are safely protected in the dominant building faction, it just pushes everyone to either join or quit making the problem a self perpetuating cycle of malignancy in the area.
    -if there are *only* destroyers in an area, they have nothing to destroy & just flip hundreds of zones a day until bored out of existence.
    - if the builders are against too many destroyers, they are left with the option of "join em or quit"
    Ideally there sgould be incentive for destroyers to glom onto whatever faction needs their healthy influence against a (potentially/actually) malignant dominant faction/teamup in an area then back to where needed next.
    There should also be incentive for builder types to do the same, but right now the only real incentives distil down to some variant of "I recognize this situation is malignant and am making this change to volunteer by virtue of my neighbor's continually stepping back when volunteers are asked to step forward (neighbor's & potentially self depending on the local situation).
    The problem with the current lack of incentive to do the beneficial thing is that it can only go on so long before the symbiotic player gets tired of being the only one to do the right thing over and over again. Members of entrenched MAD supported neighboring tower empires have no reason to break their truce and join with the instigator & the instigator will lack the newbie supporting communications infrastructure (groupme & such populated with friendlies) in order to nurture newbies into breaking a malignant MAD stalemate on either side.
    I'm hopeful that some of the stuff the Qonqr folks have mentioned in varying locales about future plans/considered plans can be/is intended to be used to address some of those things in time though.

    My point is, have the forums pretty much wrung out everything there is to discuss or find out about Qonqr? The game is starting to get the same if I'm honest. I reckon some actual game features are desperately needed.
    Lets face it Synclock worked, for the devs,money spinner and no more m/scope investigations,but in practice its been too heavily watered down to the point of useless.
    Other than Atlantis, sorta good but money dominated again, there's been nothing new.
