  1. Town Capture - New Event!

    I love the mechanic. I can see how this could be extended to other events. Thanks.
  2. Item Drop on Death Change

    I think you make a great point about the difference between PvPers (player vs players) and PKers (player killers). True PvPers want to test their skill by fighting other players straight up; PKers want to hunt other players and gank them (kill them without warning). I also agree that many of the most profitable games in history have been PvP (CS, CoD, PUBG, LoL, FiFA, Madden) but I can't think of one that I would consider to be PK. The games I would consider PK are typically persistent open world games that have regions or servers that allow ganking. Many MMOs (AC1, AC2, LotRO, WoW) have these regions and servers and they tend to be much less popular than their PvE regions and servers. I further agree that no player, especially the "whales" that carry free to play games, wants to be ganked so they will not support a game that supports the practice UNLESS they can pay to be immune to ganking and gank others with impunity. This model is likely unsustainable because the supply of prey will likely soon dry up. So what promotes ganking and how can it be stopped? I suggest that it is a persistent open world with quick kills. These qualities are necessary to make it impractical to constantly be on guard and to prevent the prey from escaping. Since we want a persistent open world in New Frontiers, the solution is either to make PvE servers or provide better means for players to escape ganks (e.g. more durability or crowd control). Free Reign clearly feels that PvP is essential to this game. I think that many players are disappointed by this choice because New Frontier has a beautiful world and interesting mechanics that cannot be found elsewhere on PC. I would encourage them to study the response to PvP changes and see if it makes sense to carve out space for PvE like Atlas recently did. Have fun
  3. Official Statement on New Frontier - WWO

    The TN have been posted.
  4. Bonuses for active players !

    Confirmed that TN have been received. Thanks Frontier Admin.
  5. Bonuses for active players !

    Awesome! Thanks Frontier Admin.
  6. Bonuses for active players !

    According to the original post on this thread, they were to be given out on August 2.
  7. Bonuses for active players !

    Any estimate of when the TN credits will be applied?
  8. Bonuses for active players !

    I would like a /played command too. I use it to see how much value I get for my money for each game. Believe it or not, I have gotten more than my money's worth out of this game already. Once the game gets back on Steam I can use their time but it would be nice to see my total time in game.
  9. Bonuses for active players !

    If you ever put extra character slots up for sale, I will buy them. Thanks again.
  10. Bonuses for active players !

    Confirmed. Thanks Frontier Admin.
  11. I like the spirit of that.
  12. Bonuses for active players !

    It does say "and" so both would seem to be required. What is less clear, however, is whether spending in the WWO phase will count towards the $10. Based on the intent to reward long time players and to make WWO buyers whole, it would seem that buying the previous incarnation of the game would suffice. I spent another $15 just to be sure. The attraction of an extra 5500 TN is too much to resist. That would buy Season Passes for a while. I am concerned that this could be a point of contention for the Steam Release if it is not handled properly.
  13. The strategy is sound. I would personally prefer more content to more polishing but I have been here for while so I have learned to look past the imperfections. New players may not be as open minded. Keep the info coming. No news is bad news in this case.
  14. Bonuses for active players !

    Since the Devs are in Russia, I would expect it would occur earlier rather than later. I am more interested in the 4500 TN but this will be an indicator for that.
  15. Bonuses for active players !

    Please post when these bonuses are applied
