    OMG another thread!! why yes;)

    Just wondering, if anyone could explain to me what goa is actually dooing?
    Except for running the servers, get cash and have a fancy website..

    no offense.. but EA mythic has created warhammeronline faster then goa has solved the population problem...

    I know i know, you're working on it.... well you haveve been for the last year and yet there is no progress..

    But there is really!

    No there isn't, population still low..

    Is it that hard to say:

    Character transfer / or cluster?

    why would they waste time on daoc, when they can make more money from WAR

    perhaps because the problem is still there?

    Hopefully, the prospect of having a clique of still disgrunted customers coming across spreading their discontent among the WAR virgins at the first sign of bother gives em some motivation to see us right. Prolly not tho.

    Good luck! I reckon GOA are doing something but I also think a majority of thier tech guys are on WAR now.

    GOA arent gonna be doing sod all, their service continues to get worse and worse, If they released patch 1.88 then people might start giving the game another try but as usual we have to wait and wait and now with the non existent GM's things can only get better :twak:

    Raven Brrrrr!

    nothing at all, rather worrying going into the WAR era that a company is willing to lie so blatantly to its user base :(

    Requiel explained that they are working non stop on a solution for Dyvet, only that it's small changes that the players wont see untill they are finished. :)

    Its going to be a case of blind brand loyalty then :(

    I will be playing on the Yank servers for WAR(if I play it that is), GOA have made a little too many mistakes and ballsed up a few things in regards to running the severs.

    Its the same idea, if Boots suddenly stopped dispensing drugs or swapped paracetamol for cyanide, would you go backand shop there?

    No, you wouldnt. So why throw money at a company like GOA? They have Open Transit ffs, thats only one reason to not give them any more custom

    It is either "too big zerg" or not enough players. When a server / cluster doesn't have a 3rd option, that IS a problem. A server losing players at alarming rate IS a problem. When the same community gets a new place shared with french, and you see the same problem there (classic) that is a bigger problem.

    As long as these problems stay GOA can't fix the "population" problem, and if I see things well: even if some players are unhappy GOA are trying to fix these problems :)

    I aint going to WAR, why bother? Game looks tarded, prolly is tarded and the information I got while I was in France on it which wasn't particularly much says to me it is tarded (not that GOA design the game or anything :p) and yes there's going to be alot of tards playing it also, so there's just a few reasons why I won't be going to that game and coming back to DAOC in the next few months and prolly staying there :)

    If the entire game is "tarded" you should fit right in.

    being part of E&E I dont like to random flame... but basically I have quit the game because the cluster is dead...

    I tried to empathzise the importance of this on the internal boards... its not the CM or GM's fault. The company has resources and priorities. atm its resources and priorities are firmly focused elsewhere

    So I can get no ETA on a cluster solution whatsoever because the peeps I am asking dont know.

    which is fine. but like I would play the game. I would be giving them whatever 2 accounts costs to run. and I know a lot of other peeps feel the same.. but its pointless playing on a server which has such a small pop.

    Realistically I would have thought implementing a cluster solution with another language server something that could be done within a month... well theres been banterings about its happening for 6 months but nothing solid (also im assuming thats what the solution is, I dont know but ofc this is what is has to be, unless they create 1000+bot players or hire people to play dyvet). which basically tells me nothings gonna happen for a while yet if ever.

    Will end up with PVE bots left right and centre, or cash farmers.

    Forget any new playerbase and concentrate on the exsisting playerbase. The game is too long in the tooth and is too deep to get into for newcommers what WoW will steal, and with WAR incomming its really no hope.

    Serioulsy think Dyvet is a lost hope and the decline will steadily be there, so you have to look after these players who still play there and i think the majority would want a free char transfer to a populated server. Heck this would probably bring back recent quitters.

    They're working on a solution that makes it possible to cluster multilangually.

    However, it doesn't have much priority since (ENGLISH) DAOC isn't exactly a great moneymaker anymore (And I suspect it never really was) and as mentioned before, their focus is probably with WAR (and other projects) right now.

    Which is a shame, since WAR isn't anywhere near finished. It's going to be at -least- 6 months before it's done, and more likely 9-12 before it's released. (Remember, WAR is like DAOC but with 6 factions instead of the three we're familiar with. They have so much work still to do it must be daunting - Then again, they shipped DAOC before it was done when they ran out of cash. ;)

    Economically, I can understand it, but as a player it flat out sucks.

    So no ETA yet, and you'll see it when you see it.

    You see their solution happening every day in the "I rerolled to Limors" threads.

    No need to spend money on hiring a car if the people have already set off walking.

    Plus add on another 6 months for it to be played without to much lag and bugs and add enough servers for all that want to play etc etc.

    But effort put into multilingual clustering on daoc is also transferable to WAR? I would have thought the effort is not wasted when/if it comes to setting up WAR clusters, but I dunno, I don't understand this techno shit. :)

    Tesla Monkor Fledgling Freddie

    I expect the language settings to be client-based in WAR. I can't believe they'd make the same decision they did with DAOC to keep languages server-based.

    Don't think you need to lose any sleep over that. I haven't actually tried any of the other languages in WAR, but on the main loginscreen you can pick English, French, German, Spanish and Italian.
