  1. UNDERDOG BONUS is flawed

    At this moment . Right now . GE has 1585 players online. GE has 85 players actually playing in a war battle, US has over 150 player actually playing a war battle and SU has about the same amount. BUT !!!!!! US is getting a 45% UDB and SU is getting a 65% UDB. how does this even calculate? you make no sence at all. the warfunds are not spread around, they are only made when you, buy some random chance, get to play in a war battle
  2. The underdog bonus is flawed. First off, I would like to find out how it is actually calculated. I have searched the forums and I can not find any explanation. I can see giving an underdog bonus to attract others to the "less populated" faction. We must remember that there are three factions. Lets call them faction A,B, and C. One faction (no matter how many players online) can only play an actual battle with the same number of players from either of the other two factions. So just because faction A has twice the players as faction B online. This does not mean that twice the amount of players are playing. If faction A has more players that faction B, faction A can still only have as many players playing as half of faction B players. Because Faction B is also playing against faction C. As it stands now, factions C and B are getting up to/over twice the amount of war funds as faction A. BUT, faction A can only have the same amount of players actually playing as half of factions B and C combined. On the last Q&A it was stated by redbjaron that the faction with the most players online was deploying the least attack teams, The main reason is because that faction makes less than half of the war funds as either of the other two factions. BUT they only have half of the amount of players (of either of the other factions) that are actually gaining war funds. Many times I see faction B gaining 45% and faction C gaining 85%. That is a total of 130%, how is this possible? ( and they are fighting each other in the same battle) Also , there are many faction A members that don't deploy any ATs, All they are doing is taking up a spot in the war battles, so that give even less opportunity's for RTS players in faction A to gain warfunds My suggestion: - UDB be calculated on attack teams deployed rather than players online. Because players online is not a reflection of the potential of any given faction. -( over 50% of faction A are not playing war battles because there are no war battles to play, we don't want to sit in queue for hrs on end so we queue up for staged) -Or, being as Faction A is only fighting with half of faction B or C, do the UDB calculations the same way and then divide that number in half. ALSO the UDB for each battle MUST be calculated for that battle not for the entire map. There is no way that two factions playing each other should both be getting a UDB (sometimes adding up to 130% or more) Better yet , SCRAP THE UDB! Thank you in advance for your prompt responce.
  3. Server Issue update - September

    AGAIN !!!!!!! WTF . Server is offline. Mid game the sever shuts down.
  4. so the poor spawn killing tanker is upset that infantry can fight back? REALLY!!!! You spawn kill infantry from across the map , then you are upset when they hunt you down? You say that everyone agrres that AT is broken. Who is everyone ? My crew and I don't think its broken at all.
  5. Server Issue update - September

    I get that servers can have issues, but twice or three times / week ? That tells me you need a better/bigger server. There goes the executive bonuses. (not)

  7. Server Issue update - September

    FFS !!!!! "We are experiencing unusual high log in requests. You are now in que.1064" half hour later I am still not in. You guys got an Atari 64bit for your server ?

    So, how does the war end when no-one could move their Ats. I waited 9 hrs yesterday and last night, I could not move my ATs. I log on 12 hrs later ( after a nap and a day at work) and the war is won by US. How can that happen? Now I will have to redeploy my ATs, but I couldn't even use them in the last war. Is RETO going to refund my WF for the ATs that I couldn't use ? ALSO , I have scoured the forums, there is no mention from RETO as to the unmovable AT bug of yesterday/last night. Can we have an explanation please?
  9. Cant move (Germany) At's

    so the war is pretty much dead then ? has there been any information from reto ?

    15 mins and we would have had the battle from SU. now we will have to redo that battle, how much you wanna bet it will go AR, and it will resolve in favor of SU?
  12. Server Issue update - September

    Server came on chat"sever will go down in 15 mins". BOOM, 10 seconds later server goes down . LOL
  13. Server Issue update - September

    Same chit, every time they do an update or a "Hot Fix" the sever goes for chit. In the last 3 days I have had the server go down 3 times. Sure, my vet membership is not affected. But my time is affected. Maybe RETO can give me a call when its back up ? LOL
  14. Server Issue update - September

    wow, server crash again? We stared loosing players. We had lots of resource left. when the game was done the game was locked up and I could not move on to the next screen. had to shut down and restart. server still locked up.
  15. AA upgrade with a feature

    AA guns are useless against any med or hvy fighter. the planes can just bomb the AA at any time. The AA gun can not rotate fast enough to target these planes. If you do get a hit or two there is minimal damage to the plane. Maybe they wouldn't spam the AA guns as much if they had to land to reload?
