So I've unsubbed about one year ago, when I realized (far too late) that this game was going nowhere.
Now I'm waiting for the release of the new version, reading the forum once a month.
Frankly, it is not giving me much hope.
It seems to me that developers are paying too much attention to visuals over functionality. E.g., the latest update is all about what the new weapons and ships would look like.
I promise you, my good friends, the AV developers, if you made a weapon that looked like diarrhea on the end of a stick but was 1% more efficient than some other beautiful design you made, 80% of the server would be using the "diarrhea on a stick" weapon. If it was 5% more efficient, 99% of the server would be using it.
Just bloody learn already, PVP games are about functionality and gameplay, not stupid visuals. If people wanted a pretty game they'd go to WoW or a hundred other games on the market that are better than you in this regard. Graphics will not make or break this game. Gameplay will.
About fucking time you learned that, seriously.
