Bring back the old Galactic War?

Bring back the old Galactic War?

Postby Birdman » 07 Dec 2015, 01:47

So, I was sitting at home wishing I could play Galactic War, which got me wondering: While Galactic War is getting redesigned, why can't we have the old one still running? I am guessing it has to do with some hardware limitation, but I am still curious.

Memory leaks and even without that it was still almost unplayable with the amount of glitches.. I can remember only like 1/3 defends would actually end up in a kind-of working game. :(

Oh yes, the memories. Galactic war would bring me straight back to nolifing this game, there's something thats so fun about not know who/what you're going to be up against :D . I'm sure many people feel the same.

And the glory days when there was no autorecall :P

I wonder why people complained so much about auto recall you got even more points when enemy used autorecall than a kill would give you. If you killed an acu it was not so useful. The introduction of autorecall was bad for the own team when noobs started to use autorecall with level 1 or level 2 chars and presented the enemy hundrets of points for reinforcements with it. I think that was a nice system. Everything there was nice.

You actually described what exactly is wrong with autorecall. People know that they can't die, so they don't care and suicide every time, because they dont know that they give opponent TONS of points.
Also imho it should be something like 'second chance' thingy, single or maybe double use but not disposable like when you just buy new one every time, as if it cost nothing. Auto recall should be very limited thing, new player should get fixed amount of autorecalls, very high rank players may have access to buy more but should have trouble buying autorecalls.

Btw bring back gw, don't care how broken it is.
If it will be there with big huge red 'BETA' text
Maybe it will attract more contributors.
Memory leak issue? Well idk how we managed it before afaik just restarting every X hours should work

Just read what speed posted, well shit

There was just no satisfaction of permanently killing those rank 4+ people who won so many games already on that char. Also because you'd never lose rank there were way too many people who could call in reinforcements, and you never really had to play cautiously because there was only 10% influence of a planet at stake. Instead of their entire character.

That sad feeling when you realise zep said GW would be back around jan 2015 :(


Edit: just looked at that screenshot, totally forgot about those planetary defenses, they were so stupid :P
