  1. PC. And I'm not just talking crashing. I'm talking bugs like animals falling off boats, I'm talking tiles vanishing when placing other tiles, I'm talking placing objects and 'hoping' they'll appear where the blue outline actually is. Bugs that have been in this game since day 1. And yes, I was here for that mess as well." I finally plopped down on an unclaimable island. Do I have any gathering structures? Nope, not one. Entire island taken. I checked 6 grids, all of the islands before I gave up finding something claimable. Claims allow people to just drop them anywhere, even on land they have no intent on using, just to say it's mine, mine, mine. Taking a week to find a place to put down roots is NOT my idea of entertainment. Dime a dozen to you. I have 1 bear and 0 on any island in my sector. I lose that one and I'm out trying to find another. And yes, I'm aware of the techniques on how to recover bears that fall off boats. The question is, should I have to employ these workarounds myself in order to get past bad code? The real problem with Atlas is the same problem with every mmo any more. Back in days of C-64's the coders HAD to get it right as there was no patching. Now, the companies really don't give a shit about fixing things because that doesn't make money. Adding new, useless, pointless, flashy, buggy baubles does.
  2. Q:What features are you looking forward to? A:A mostly bug free game? Q:What are your current favorite features of the game? A: 1.When the client or server crashes. I can go play some other game that works (mostly). A: 2.I can drop lawless claims everywhere and prevent noobs from building anything. Q:Best experience or fondest memories in game? A: 1.Standing like a statue in one spot. The less you interact the fewer bugs you'll encounter. Sorry for the short replies. Just spent the past hour searching for my bear after zoning (a 4 year old bug).
  3. Silly boy, fixing bugs doesn't sell new copies, adding new crap with more bugs does. I've just spent 2 hours trying to create a new character. You see, I goofed up and logged in on the new map NOT in noob town. Mainly because It didn't bother to tell me which grid was noob town so I just picked one. Got stuck on some stupid island. So, I decided to remake my character. Clicked on the little box that says make a new character, it asked me if I was sure and I said yep and it started me in noob town. Got my boat, got out on the water, game crashed. I selected rejoin, put me right back at the first character I created. Been going through that loop for HOURS now. Will that get fixed? Nope. Why? They already have my money.
  4. After reading through the forums and seeing how pve players are getting walled in, how everything they've built is getting taken away, about how they've done all they can to crush a player run economy (markets, farmhouses, mines, etc.), I can see that not a lot has changed. In particular, this has definitely not changed. fej56az5moz61.mp4
  5. Went out with my bear yesterday. Granted, it's a shitty lvl 55 cargo bear but hey, the map was only a 3.3... easy right? aotd bear damage = 17 Ok, screw that. I got two pistols. I'll end this shit right now... boom... boom. aotd pistol damage (head shot) = 6 Well, that's good news. Now I can spec out of taming since I won't need a bear to sail around and do pointless maps with. And I can spec out of pistols because I only need a bow to kill the wolves around me. And, I won't have to waste skill points on crazy stuff like swords, or armor. Cool! Ok, so... to hell with maps, I'll go kill sotd. Whipped out he brig, spent an hour and a half sailing around. Killed 2 low level brigs and a low level galleon. Spent like 100 cannon balls and another hour repairing the brig (roof armor which npc's, who I'm PAYING, refuse to fix) My rewards? 39g, 19 large cannon balls (useless since large cannons are gunport only), 16 liquid flame (useless in pve), a common ballista and 9 ballista bolts. Oh, and a common ballista blueprint (Yipee!) Was that a hint for me to do whales? Naa. Can't be. In that hour and a half sailing around I didn't see a single one. Surely not. Ok, so remind me again, what was this grand plan about me spending more time at sea and less on land? I forget. Oh wait, I remember. That massive adrenaline rush I get from doing both of the 3.0 sunken treasure (the only 2 the sextant buffed showed in all that sailing around) which paid more than either the map or the sotd (barely)! And that's with me only getting to do one because after I dived on the second one I found the entrance to the chest buried under dirt. But hey, I still got 56g off the first one. Yea baby! Filthy rich. 105 more days like this and I can afford to change the name on my ship! Whew! I still have a reason to play the game. I'm so glad I came back to Atlas. (For those unfamiliar with me or my methods, this is NOT optimism. It's fucking sarcasm.)
  6. I'm done... again. Decided not to play until there's a wipe and the whole stupid land claim system gets fixed. It started with someone claiming and taxing a previously unclaimed island where I was farming tin and cobalt. It got exacerbated when I was trying to build a ship to take on STOD. Spent a small fortune in time and resources, got to the part where I was trying to place a sail and it kept saying obstructed (even though it was blue). Ripped half the ship back apart and it was still obstructed (and got 0 resources back because it wasn't 'anchored'). Got pissed off and demolished the entire shipyard. Then, got to looking at claiming the island I was on (not because I wanted taxes but because I didn't want anyone taxing all the work I'd put into it) and realized just how much maintenance I'd have to do to keep paying for it. Screw that. If you claim the land, you're taxed by the game, forced into a time-sink to pay for it and the only thing you get is that someone else can't tax you. If you live on someone else's claim, you're taxed by them, spend 20% more of your time to gather the same amount of resources and get nothing return. If you live on an unclaimed island, someone can come tax you without so much as a by-your-leave and you get nothing in return. Of course, the other option is to live on a lag-fest lawless island and there, you are never truly safe from dickhead neighbors. Sorry but this is supposed to be a game, it's supposed to entertain the players. None of those options above are entertaining to me. Ta-ta.
  7. THANK YOU! My god that was a long time coming. Always pitched my gear out under something and couldn't get it back.
  8. Would you have me any other way?
  9. Think of it like this. It's so much like reality. When you created the company you went to the bank and got a loan to start it. All of your shit was collateral. When you left the company, the bank repossessed. They just dispensed with all that bothersome legal paperwork. Here's the good news. Now that you know the secret, you can become rich (providing you're very likable.) Just start a new company, get people to join and then, boot them in the ass. Voila' you now own all their shit!
  10. Still hoping Realist. Still hoping. Have you bought the game yet or are you still spewing from a spectator's perspective? And for a serious response to this thread: Nothing is going to happen the way you want, the way you expect or even the way you hope. Thus far, Grapeshot has made it perfectly clear that they have some obscure vision for this game and they're hell bent on making it happen, regardless of how screwed up things get (remember paste to make a rock?). Early on they tried to make a comparison with EVE Online. For years, EVE players have had a voice in the direction of that game. https://community.eveonline.com/community/csm/ 10 players from the community are elected to that council for a 1 year term. CCP even flies them out to Iceland every year, flight and accommodations paid, in order to meet with the devs and discuss face-to-face the issues the players have. They don't always agree but, the players voices do get heard. This post, and the hundreds if not thousands on this forum like it, are nothing more than pissing into the wind. That gif that I made, and the reason everyone sees it as funny, is because that's the perceived truth. Until this game has something similar to that csm, you can jump on these forums and scream your head off all you want. Just realize, that gif is most likely how it's received.
  11. Funny thing, I made this like 6 months ago and it's still true today.
  12. Game crashing has been a problem since day one. SOTD have been a problem since they flooded the ocean with them the first week. And not having your own loot drop in a freeport when you die was a problem the minute they released that stupid patch. You have no idea who I am but I do know what this game is.
  13. RIght, because we know this game has been perfect since day one. My god, look who turned into the fanboy.
