Slapshot1188Slapshot1188 Boca Raton, FLPosts: 4,524Member Uncommon

Despite a month long campaign that includes fans bragging about making 4+ accounts to "vote", Steam today announced their new batch of Greenlight games without MO.  Interesting news given that it is a game that has been released for 2.5 years.  Anyhow, without further adieu, your Jan 15th Greenlight list:

Starvault's reponse to criticism related to having a handful of players as the official "test" team for a supposed MMO: "We've just have another 10ish folk kind enough to voulenteer added tot the test team" (SIC) This explains much about the state of the game :-)

    More cautious about bug filled products run by shady types since WarZ perhaps?

    its still on the greenlight page so it is still under consideration but didnt make this monthsl ist of greenlit games. some of the ones just greenlit have been on greenlight far longer than mo.

    there are 2 types of mmo, imitators and innovaters.

    I sincerely hope MO does not make it through the Greenlight process. It is an awful game.

    IDK but I am THRILLED to see "age of decadance" among the "chosen". Vault Dweller (Vince) is an awesome guy who has worked his everloving butt off for YEARS to make a game that he knows will probably not ewven break even. He has delayed and delayed and delayed (paying salaries from his own pocket) to make sure the game was up to snuff... AND it isnt even released yet after probably 7 or so years of development.

    On the other hand we have MO which has been released for 3 years, was funded by a"stockholders" and ran into the ground by a rich brat- Who then asks for "donations" on top of a sub fee.

    That said, I voted for both.

    Why would I vote for MO, you may be wondering? I did it for the lulz.. I would LOVE to see how steam handles this bugf ridden mess with corrupt GMs and would love to see MO publicly thrown off of steam for corrupt GMs and a broken game- But that cannot happen if we do not VOTE. So VOTE MO.

    You knuckleheads do realize that the game can stay on the pre-greenlight  vote list nearly indefinately?

    And im just saying...what if getting it greenlit would give these developers enough money to hire real programmers to fix the game?  And then you guys wouldnt have to lurk the forums of sandbox games trolling the developers anymore.

     

    (no i dont play MO and yes its terrible)

     

    Just saying...why does everyone want to see sandbox games die so much?  Not enough themeparks out there?

  • SieniDieniSieniDieni finlandiaPosts: 6Member
    Ill vote yes when the game nodes can handle more people or the devs put in more starting areas to split the hordes of new players that steam would bring in.

    I love sandbox games.  I just prefer my sandbox games to be functional and developed by trustworthy companies.  Similarly I enjoyed the FPS survival feel of DayZ but wouldn't touch WarZ with a 10ft pole.

    lol, in all honesty, you don't want to buy anything through steam anyway. CS is absolutely horrendous for Steam, and their "app" is a glorified pop up window.

    Every time I used Steam before I wised up I had problems with their customer support. Abysmal.

    What are you talking about? Ive never had an issue with Steam in over 50 titles.

    Not everyone has the same experience with every company, but Steam has been less than helpful to me in the purchase of 4 games before I let them go.

    I still never got my money back for buying Rift through steam for the fiance, even though it didn't work and I never received my code.

    Needing help with your last 4 purchases doesn't sound like a Steam issue.

    Code? The game should be automatically added to your library, I am not sure what code you'd need. If you purchased the game from third party site (instead of steams shop) which said they'd send you a code you can activate on steam, steam has nothing to do with it.

    In this thread: Steam fanboys. You guys are so hostile lol, just because you worship a company doesn't mean others do. Good day.

    No I didn't "need help with a purchase" I wanted what I paid for, which for this company is a crime apparently.

    You said you had issues with the last 4 games you purchased from Steam.  What other part of that transaction would be Steams fault?

     

    There are 5,642,871 people using Steam right now, would this be the case if it was really that problematic?

    Um, Im not fanboying, I am just pointing out that when buying from steam you usually need no code.

    Glad they didn't make it thought the Greenlight on Steam. I think it also has to do with MO's 'achievement' of killing negative feedback :D

    Honestly i'm glad this game didn't make the Greenlight. It's an amazing game lead by a bunch of damn idiots. They take players from guilds and big alliances and let them become GM's that can monitor your payment and personal information as well as ban you at will. 

    It's also plagued with hacks, dupes, and just corruption in their staff all around. I use to support this game but since they want to ban me for having "third party" tools installed (not running but installed) I'm simply done. Any of you considering this game should not waste your time. You put yourself at risk playing when stuff like this happens:

    I find that VERY hard to believe!  Its bad enough if SV is scanning your system for running processes, but having free reign over your hardrive is just absurd. Plus SVs detection has always been a joke.

  • CelusiosCelusios Denver, COPosts: 340Member Uncommon

    I want to quote this from a similar case on the official forums:

     

     

    When a GM helps you out he will use our tools to do so.
    In those tools the GM have noticed you have/have had a illegal-program running while playing the game.
    So he banned you. The tools are correct but this does NOT mean that you had the program running the same day or the day before. But you did indeed have it running at one point while running our game.

    I can see how this would be frustrating for you, some of these programs can, I guess, be used for other things. But you have to see this from our side, we can not tolerate any instance of running these programs with our game. We need to have a strict hard rule here that's all we can do.

    On a separate note I'm not sure you are allowed to talk about bans on the forums, if not sorry mods for responding to this but he seems like a nice guy.

     

     

    Starvault is scanning your machine for traces of any known third party tools and banning you accordingly. You could of had a program they deem "bad" not even running on the game but in another process and get banned just the same. The first part however made me laugh. I'm supposed to believe they have some sort of "log" that "logs" a user running Cheat Engine but does not ban them that moment rather it's logged for any instance a GM is called in. Yeah... okay.

    See that is the issue kids today get  off on ruining  others work because they don't work and most are living with momma,so they think its so easy to design and make a game when they have no clue what it takes to do it, so they rather bash a game, I have seen users quit a game for a few years and still go to a forum to troll/bash them , its like are you that butt hurt or that hatefull that you have to go to a old game that you disliked forums to do this?? I mean cmon ..

     

    We have enough Themeparks, so what if its bug ridden, play it or leave it alone, but if someone wants to continue to develop it so what , what is it hurting you? Atleast they had the balls to try and make something different unlike all of the AAA companys that make clones and or steal other ideas.

     

    I 'm sick of Themeparks..
