  1. these silly company limits on alliances just screw over small companies more than they help them...dunno who thought this would stop big companies to work together (which isn't wrong in the first place) but it just makes it impossible for smaller companies to a) form a big enough alliance with enough small companies or b) god forbid work together with bigger companies as they don't get an alliance slot due to their size. you can't even form grid alliances with the limits even if only 1 company owns 1 island per grid while there should be more companies per island by design *shrug* in the end the result is big companies are annoyed as the alliance system is crap for them too but can and do work around this. so if there has to be limits on alliance members it should be PLAYERS and not companies tho i still think these limits don't help the small ones but in the end make it a pain for all.
  2. hey devs, right now the thing that is way worse than before 1.5 is the alliance system, speaking from the point of a small company -do you see the problems the current alliance system leads too? like it basically it doesn't change that players that want to work together will work together but just makes it a pain, even more so for small companies which you stated the new colony system should help - the settlers if you want. just to point a few out: -right now due to the limits on how many companies can join an alliance i think small companies have never been "forced" to merge with big ones more than now. before 1.5 the limit of 12 per alliance was very limiting too but at least there was a chance that also small companies had a spot in grid alliances and such without the need to merge. now with 5 max this is just no longer possible...understandable from the point of bigger companies that want an alliance that can field enough players too. -the settlement system should promote companies to work together and well form an alliance which even should spread over more islands if the landowner is big enough. -why shouldn't a lot of small 3-10 man companies be able to form an alliance and work together that in total can match the numbers of an alliance with 5 75 ppl companies? ->what are your plans to make this work? maybe you want to... -> do away with limit of companies but make alliances limit on total players in it? -> add a functional standing system (look at EvE pls) that also can be set on cannons and such? my final thought: even if you want to limit alliances players will field big numbers if they like. all you do is make it a pain that is unnecessary because it will not change a lot...at least for the big companies. it will however hurt the small ones that don't want to be part of the big wars, but find a grid to live, defend and be part of in their own way. love the game but the alliance system is a real mess right now. cheers

    Alliance number?

    this new alliance number limitations are just hurting the small companies more than anything else...how it looks now is: big companies form an alliance and due to the sever limits the small companies that settle stay red to most...or there is more small companies that would want to work together to get somewhat reasonable numbers...can't due to limit. all in all this system just makes it a pain for everyone and screws over small companies as a whole. i play in a really small one and before it was way better with friendly grid neighbours forming alliances for trade, treassure hunting or working together for defense...just not possible any longer. i mean if they don't want super big alliances limit on players and not companies the way it is without any standing system is just making it a pain for all, big or small.

    Alpha Lions

    works well with normal lions but with alphas it's just instant death and like 90% of the time they sneak on you while hitting a rock/tree ^^ you can't run from them, you can't fight them...lost 2 more bears today *yay* ^^ guess if you are on an island with tons of lions you are just screwed for now...this really needs some changes

    Alpha Lions

    well tried everything but if an alpha lion gets you and you are alone, you and your tame are dead next try is to always take more tames with you tho i still think in this case this is just a little too much.

    Alpha Lions

    Hey, since release alphas overall got dumbed down quite a lot and i for one liked alphas being quite strong, a danger and somewhat of a challange and was sad when even wolves were no more a thing to fear. yet as of now i really got to say that something needs to change about alpha lions (or i am just missing something). the problem is not them being hard but they just knock you of your tame and stun you till you are dead, tame following soon after while i could kill them if they wouldn't just always stun kill me - there is not just anything to do against it besides having a t3 mount as far as i know (or le tme know if i am wrong :P). the island i am on has tons of them and so retaming bears comes right after farming base mats so can you please either shorten the stun by a lot or make it so you get no dmg while stunned. leave them strong and a challenge but not unbeatable as on islands with them you are not always teamed up while farming or doing stuff.

    24h no dimolish!?

    sorry but this idea is just bad. you get 24h to remove the stuff, the decay if someone goes inactive but being able to remove everything from everyone during peace time will just lead to griefing and frustration.

    Empire server Top 3

    guess the reason there is no NA PvE yet is to see if it's worth to keep the empire server or just make it PvE

    CAPTAIN’S LOG 25: TEST AHOY!

    and looking at the little increase in numbers with the test server release it doesn't look like the thousands are eager to come back or just noone wants to test the new stuff

    So Everyone can Build???

    yes i have stated it way too many times ... the old system was just right and only needed some adjustments like a limit of claim flags, the remake just seems worse and the wipe did the rest. why do games i really like always get shafted by the devs ^^

    Feedback Exploration

    Hey, now that you can port to every grid is very much killing all the exploration somehow. i think that only being able to port to freeports was a good solution and more than enough. so i hope this is only for testing purpose? also please bring back that you need to uncover your map...i think this added a lot so see where you have been traveling.

    So Everyone can Build???

    think so too..i mean if they do away with the claim flagsystem the settlement owner needs to give permission before you can build...i honestly cannot understand how they think this will work. what will happen just to name a few examples: over night someone can sail by and build and store equipment for the raid hours and has a good chance noone will find this in time so they can annoy the hell out of the island during raid times. noone sees where this is whereas with the old claim system you had so much more controle over the island..doubt this will be fun. ppl will build stupid stuff that annoys island resident and owners just because they can ppl will spawn foundations all over the island so noone can build so this will surely not work like the devs stated they want it to be and why all this? so everyone can build anywhere? what for - if someone doesn't like you there you will be removed...so basically this is like before: if you want to settle you got to talk to someone if it's ok, with claim flags this was so much easier to handle. dunno a lot of ppl where asking for offline protection and i agree this was needed but what we got now looks worse in most apsects than before so if you want to have offline protection you got to play free building mode that will be just meh as far as i can tell or go play empire where by design offline proection is having mass players that will surely not be there as most want offline protection be it small or big... and for all this we lost most of the playerbase *yay*

    Structure Decay

    Hey, so how does the structure decay work now? seems like if you don't log in 4 days your structures can be demolished. didn't we already have the discussion about small companies can be on vacation and all this? so with the old claim system as long as your character was in your claim they had to break your walls and kill you...now they can just demolish if you haven't been online for 4 days? this needs to be addressed. want to get my stuff, you at least have to break my base...or does it not start counting as long your character sleeps in there or and npc is around? oh and please do something about everything growing through the floors and all this.

    Lost Interest?

    sure they said it will be in EA for 2 years but yet they are calling 1.5 the relaunch of atlas, promise of monthly content updates...dunno it might also just be that a lot of ppl myself included didn't expect an EA with wipes but an EA with bugs that gets better over time (yes because they did so in ark:P) and most are bitter that they did not go this route. more important is that i care for the game and want it to succeed but there is just so many EA games noone plays because of wipes and when it finally launches noone cares anymore...i mean they are making a relaunch of the game as they call it, do you really think ppl will stick thru another wipe? atlas will be no fun with too few ppl, games like this needs a decent population and they are gambling with their population big time. the numbers playing now show this quite clear and i for one think you can't say this often enough.
