Last Patch Killed the Game for most players that are not team focused and similar ships.
Most of the diversity is gone as your equipment choice is greatly reduced. Many of the ships strenghts and weakness have expanded which leaves you more dependant on your group. While some people enjoy a more team focused game it's likely that if nothing changes I and others like me will be uninstalling.

I hope you reconsider the patch and do a role back otherwise I'll have one less game to play. I'm sure some people will love the changes but I doubt the majority will.

Before, each faction had their advantages. Specialization is out the window, since everyone has the same tech more or less. Before the factions fit a storyline and there was a place for mercs amongst the factions. Now how you fly and fight and specialize is much less meaningful. Before you could complement the strengths of other ships from different factions as well as your own, but now all ships are equal in nerfhood. I personally want a refund, but i doubt that will happen. So i will just settle with you fixing your game. Specialization is something rare in todays world of gaming, achieving a mix of strengths that represent what you can do is something even rarer. You had it, and you threw it away. You are repeating the same path that doomed the first Star Wars online game. Please, fix yourselves.

Specialization is out the window?! What game are you playing? They just partitioned each ship class in to three *specialized* roles.

You'd think it wasn't possible to write off a free game, but here we are. Oh well.

I'd say let them keep impossing more and more restriction until there is no choice left but to pay £30 for each ship. Eventually they will get fed up with each other and fold once everyone has left. (Besides from the die hard grinders.)

Major stuff this patch....

I have Military grade items for ship classes I have and none show up in equipment selection screen.

And Items that I did have that were removed don't seem to have recieved the same amount as they cost to replace. Out of 5 experimental items I only have one left and the others have been removed. I got 800 gold and 300k credits for rare items these seem to be a major ♥♥♥♥ over for players.

Can't even affort to replace equiped items that were removed due to the incorrect refunds on items removed.

Can't even log into support site to raise a ticket about this.

i hate this game now. because of this patch i cant put my equipment i once had on my ships i had millitary items and now i cant use them. the ship coast went up a lot. i cant buy my mechete type s without buy the mechete AE. i cant get the hawk-eye then get the t3 federation intercepter like i was planning. i have to buy all new equipment for my ships. id like it if they just put things in. not take out all the good stuff. it's bs and i dont feel like playing this game if this keeps up. All i wanted was to be able to change the special module so my mechete's could go invisiable. and i was really liking the game, but it's just not worth playing anymore. what im trying to say is thanks for butchering this game. and unless it gose back to the way it once was before this update in the next update or two i wont play again!

Well you all should stop playing for cry n out loud. Don't put youself through the stress. Not worth it. I think the patch saved the game but hey its not for you cool but if you play for awhile the new patch is good. Gameplay has improved but the grind continues.....

I was about to buy a T4 ship finally, and what ♥♥♥♥ing happens they change the entire ship tree making me have to buy 2 more T3 ships before I can reach the T4. WTF!? Not only that but I get to lose all my modules and waist my saved up credits on ♥♥♥♥ I already bought. The devs seriously are trying to kill their own game. I played from the beginning till today where if i had a real copy of this game I'd burn it. Never have I had updates consistantly get worse, way to go devs in turning this game into some bland ♥♥♥♥.

I'm also really disappointed in this patch. The reason I chose to play as Federation was for the stealth ability in their fighters. It fit with my play style and what did this last patch do? It took stealth away and gave me overdrive on the ship I spent days saving up to get. I can get a stealt ship again but at Rank 10.

Thanks a lot. You even took away my modules and give me options for useless ones that don't fit my play style at all. Before this game was about picking a race and ship class that matches you and then modifying them to further make you own. Now it's more you have to shut up and adapt to the stock ship roles they have laid out for you whether you like them or not. Awesome.

The patch ruined the whole game, it took away my phobos aura & all the stuff it came with.
The reputation stays the same to, they just made the game harder, so hard that the game is almost unplayable without spending real life money.

The improvements don't beat the other crapy stuff the game has added.

The ships cost more money to & you don't get much of a split where the frigates meet the fighters or fighters meet the interceptors in-fact the have made the ship tree alot less interesting.

The game is in it's late beta so the game might improve later on when it gets to the later 1.?.?


The game is TrAsHeD with the recent updates not to mention the players going down in the recen patches

Well today the player numbers were higher then they were all of last week. Lots of good feedback not all is negative. I know you all miss your cheese builds but thats what you get trying the easy button in beta lol
StitchJones Apr 23, 2013 @ 12:50am 
The player numbers were higher out of curiosity, the good feed back was for the most part from relativly new players awestruck at their ships new special mod abilities that have always been in game if they had bothered or had the oppertunity to try different factions, and the negative feedback was from jokers who wasted their time saving for high tier ships they wanted who made the laughable assumption that since guard/command/engineer roles roles were already in their ships description it would probably reamain so given that these roles remain after the patch. Idiots.

I wouldn't have been so ♥♥♥♥ed off about this patch if they had advise what they were going to do, instead of just dropping it on us like they did.
What has me dumb struck is military grade frigate engineering modules don't even show up for the same tier frigates. not to forget I lost 75% of all my green (experimental) modules acroos all tiers.

They ♥♥♥♥ed up loyalty gaining system (so you pay to get gold and buy the items you would otherwise get loyalty for).
They ♥♥♥♥ed up ship prices, so you pay more for their crappy gear then making more double clicks to dispose of that useless garbage.
They ♥♥♥♥ed up loot...10x less value? No comments.
They introduced useless mail. 8 more clicks ina win with 3 completed contracts...why? I remember noobs voting positively without even knowing what had happenned.
Now they ♥♥♥♥ed up the game telling everyone to buy gold ship (so they do not pay repair bills), sold our hardly earned items for ship, unfitting our ships, changing tier, changing roles, nerfing weapons and on and on. I have ship in all 3 factions (t3 in jericho and fed, t4 in empire), and I just gave up on the thought I had to refit them. Plus only 1.7 mil refund for the items you stole from me. I do not care if the roles are fun or w/e..you ♥♥♥♥ed up my patience and you tell me straight out to pay to get anything. Now go ♥♥♥♥ yourselves ♥♥♥♥♥♥ devs you never listen and you will never learn. На ♥♥♥♥♥♥.

Yup and I was trained up for Federation command ships and than they changed the whole line. Now it is all obsolete and now a TACKLER line. Lame
