Bad Publicity and Common Misconceptions about Eternal Crusade

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by Data8671, Jun 3, 2018.

  1. Well... Here's a list of things that really hurt the game... Something needs to be done about it.

    Common misconceptions:
    • There are no devs
    Very common to see, people think that all the devs are gone and the game receives no content or updates
    Why would they play a game they think has no devs?​
    • Eldar are more OP than they actually are
    Eldar are made out to be an unbeatable foe, and you have no chance whatsoever
    They are beatable, and yes I think they are OP, but they are beatable​
    • Devs do not care about balance
    As we know, @jbregg is trying to improve balance with every patch​
    • The game is unplayable due to countless bugs
    While EC has a fair few bugs, none make the game unplayable, or really badly effect gameplay at all apart from ones that are exploited badly​

      • The game has so few players, even getting a match is rare
    I can get matches all day, and currently the game's lowest player count falls between 150 and 300 players in the last few days​
    • Queues take hours
    A queue longer than 5-10 minutes is very rare for me​
    • Servers could go down at a moment's notice
    Payed for until 2020​
    • There are never updates
    We get a fair amount of updates actually​
    • Game is dead
    Actually, since December, the playerbase has been slowly increasing, and we still get games, and have devs. Doesn't sound very dead to me​

    Bad new player experience:
    • Melee sucks
    New players tend to rmb spam and are not very aware of their surroundings in game so are easy to pick off with a bolter, problem with player, not game​
    • AV spam
    Not fun at all
    Long way between points on most maps
    Often die on the way, so very fistrating
    • Balance is awful
    Again, problem with players not game. I ahve seen almost full teams of new players in the last few games. They have no clue what they're doing so lose badly

    • Most haters have not played the game since f2p launch, or even before so hold an outdated view of the game
    • Refuse to accept anything other than Planetside 2 40K edition
    • Blame Miguel era stuff on current devs
    • But it says it's an MMO
    • Comparing it to large scale games with tens of thousands of players and a larger audience (Warframe, Fortnite, ect...)
    • Unrealistic demands/expectations
    • Lack of understanding of development process

    -Hitreg and latency are also issues that are very real, but not closely as dramatic as some people make them out to be.

    -There is no "Pay-to-win". EC made it's share of mistakes but this was not one of them.

    -There are no cheaters or hackers.

    -TTK really is everything but excessively short.
  3. 2 more years of beating my head against a wall! fantastic!
  4. Why? You could just leave the forum and be done. No need to wait. Never understood why people who stopped playing still come here.

    Yeah, that totally puzzles me too :D

    Hope against hope that it will somehow improve? Anger at the devs for taking something they really liked and making it bad? Having a 40k game with a unique experience and seeing it failing and not succeeding like they wanted? (Can't go to another game and play orks or Eldar in a shooter)

    There's honestly a lot of reasons...

    You know how tumors work.
    They have no purpose other then to make your life a shit.
    Without that, they are nothing.
    Its the same with some people.
