Latest game change is a joke

Seriously raising the speed of destroyers and recyclers by 1, is not going to increase their usage. Maybe if destroyers had hanger space of 1 or 2 they might get used more. I will give credit for making the minor speed change, but there are so many other serious areas of this game that need attention and can use some work.

That's a terrible idea though.

There is nothing wrong with this destroyer change. I find it good that something was changed if only because it's been so long.

Give Wizard at least a little credit. Hopefully more changes will come in time.

This change problably happened because no1 will cry about how unfair the DE will be by having +1 more speed.

Was literally the case I made to Wiz when I approached him with the idea. Was a small change that might impact their usage early game on other servers if it was going to have any significant impact at all. Was just a way that without much balance testing DE could be adjusted to be slightly more unique than they were before, regardless of whether or not that uniqueness translates into increased usage.

If anything this should give ya'll a bit of hope and maybe even a template for how to get any future updates pushed through. Look for small things that don't have a direct impact on people's in-game investments. DE speed change isn't going to make anyone on old servers suddenly want to swap specs, and it isn't going to push the few DE specs in existence over the top either while still being a buff.

Because of the way this game is played and that servers never close, any update you want Wiz to push through needs to have minimal retroactive effects on the rest of the game. Giving DE 1-2 hangar for example would make DE way too strong, giving anyone who already owns a stack a massive buff, and spitting in the face of anyone who built FR all this time.

If your buff makes it more cost efficient to do something than it was before I would bet it will never get pushed. Can't mess with the game that much when the server has been on for 10-11 years. Not sure why anyone would even want them to.

I have refrained from even bringing this up because I'm sure it will be blasted but if your in the mood to make changes because a ship isn't used much you could always look at Death Stars.

I heard a joke once: Man goes to doctor. Says he's depressed. Says life seems harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world where what lies ahead is vague and uncertain. Doctor says, "Treatment is simple. Great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go and see him. That should pick you up." Man bursts into tears. Says, "But doctor...I am Pagliacci.”

Good joke. Everybody laugh. Roll on snare drum. Curtains.

BTW in other games, when a server has reached certain number of active players ( like 300 in some ) they kill the server.
Maybe that would do good to having the new servers more interesting and fun. for obvious reasons.....

...guess you dont count the time when FRs didnt have any hangers and then ::poof:: they magically have the same hanger space as CRs?!.

Astroempires players:
*beep* for years we aren’t getting new features

Also Astroempires players:
*beep* because we are getting new features

Are the features we’ve gotten big or even relevant? No, but at least they haven’t been game breaking. Look through the feature request forum and you see all the garbage the players want that would be game breaking.
