    I too come from a "base" background. 90% of my playing time in T1,T2,TV & TA has been "base" except I perfered V2 in T2. I am looking forward to Base Midair but until that becomes more popular, I will play what is available as I truly love this game. I am a true die hard for this "tribes"game type. I played every version until it was dead. heck I am still playing TA pugs every saturday night and some mondays. long live FPSZ!

    People are really overthinking this. No one is playing pubs because there aren't enough players. The end.

    I hate to the point out the obvious, but the player retention among the games most ardent supporters is basically zero. Based on kick-starter over 1000 people should have access to the game, plus the keys given out, plus the people who bought in later, and there is almost no one playing.

    It's not looking great, and if people think its because 10 guys play LT in a locked server for a couple hours every day they're kidding themselves. I'm not sure what went wrong, I personally really like the game, but it's not looking good.

    Really sucks to see Midair in this "dead" state even before release. I contributed during the first kickstarter for instant access. Been following the game ever since hoping things would kinda pick-up but it's never happened. I've maybe played 10 or so full server games over the past year and half or however long it's been since instant access released. Most of the time I'll log on and it's completely dead with no one online or a few people in the PUG servers. Sometimes I'll ski around and see if people join, but usually after a while if no one joins I'll log off, I just don't have the time to sit and wait trying to get a game, when there's other things I could be doing.

    And I feel the frustrations of some of the guys with the PUG servers, but honestly that's only a small issue, the big issue is this game just wasn't advertised very well. I have old teammates that were hardcore tribes players and I had to tell some of them this game still existed. There's just not much hype for it or publicity going on at all. Looking back it seemed like a good idea to have an Indie company try to take on the tribes legacy, but honestly it takes a lot of money to push games like this and get people interested because it's so niche. I don't want this to come off like I'm dissing the Devs, I admire their effort, but just wasn't enough there to attract a significant player base.

    Yes again, the circle continues, they cannot 'be playing base' once they arrive, because the mass needed will not arrive at all if there's only a working LT version. For once it's not Chicken or Egg. It's base. And base drops LT - usually.

    For me I don´t see a "not working base". There are of course a few issues but they don´t break the complete gameplay imo. There are also annoying gameplay issues affecting LCTF like not stopping players when midairing in the front or the back-hit-deadstop. But these issues don´t prevent ppl from playing.
    We´ve played Dam and HowlingSpires on sunday with 5/6 a side and it was fun (farming, defending gen, HO etc.) and there were also a few LT player playing base.

    Pretty obvious you are missing the point.

    THIS and MANY other threads/posts/discord started by the same "few" people blaming "Base Failures" on those that wish to LT.

    But the same few that are told the same thing just wont listen.
    But by all means keep posting your hate of those that are enjoying the game.

    LOL I don't even know what to say.

    So I don't. And I stop myself.

    WW, visit me we'll numb ourselves with the one and only Mac'n'Cheese done by me. If we can't get the "Ooooooooompf" playin', we get the "Ooooooooompf" eatin'. Unftly I cannot visit you, coz that cheese would not pass the borders ;)

    I guess maybe I/We don't understand.
    It's funny (LOL) that you and a few others blame the players enjoying LT PUGs for you not having the Oooooooompf?

    Or just keep blaming LT PUGs for you not getting the game Developed the way you think it should...

    The thing is much bigger, but you guys don't see the interconnectivity not just on a behavioral, but also on a presentational (outbound reflection of the game) level.

    Yes, stats are great! Finally! You know what to do. They will help to keep players. Now get them.

    I really have to stop. It angers me. Cya on some servers.

    Yes we agree...the negative posts/threads/discord should stop!
    The Behavior & Presentation in these negative posts/threads/discord give a negative outbound reflection of the game.
    So we agree that these Threads/Posts/Discord should stop being created & encouraged.

    Finally :cool:

    It is forbidden, to take it with you, using public transportation in France. It's my favorite. It's a delight.
