    I guess you don't read your signature very often.

    The turret number reduction is intended and was needed for the game. The real nerf though is the reduced turn rate of the turrets. That is the real cause of reduced DPS but that is also a bug and not intended.

     It's beta. But I do agree that so far they have shown little solid direction in the game. Firing the CEO this month should help that. I also agree that spending money on an alpha or beta product is not a wise choice. Buyer beware.

    No it's not. Taking money ingame and not having character wipes anymore (could say last milestone was pretty much a character wipe anyway) is a launched game. Just because you have a beta sticker on your game to have a shield when you mess up something does not mean the game is actually in beta.

     

    I'm saying that as a paying customer too, I love the game despite its shortcomings. I've spent a total of 60€ in it and I dont regret spending that money at all. It's a fun game, a smooth game, a joy to handle, it just lacks content and solid direction.

     

    I've been to betas, they are before the game launch. When a game launches, they start taking money for the game and the services, and stops making beta wipes. After that point it's just content updates and general patches, just like Firefall.

    by it´s very nature the BETA tag is valid as long as the developers say it is. If people choose to spend money on a beta product it is their own fault.

     

    It is at least more honest then the other way around. To release a unfinished game and pretend like everything is peachy. These devs at least tell you that the game is not finished and that you spend money at your own risk.

    Firefall has been crap for quite some time, don't get me wrong, the content thats there is brilliant, but the developers have no single clue how to deal with Resources, the amount of different kind of rewards and resources you get in this game is mental.

    If that wasn't bad enough, It's like they make crafting and rewards more complicated with every major patch they put out, and their major patches never bring any content with them that you havent seen 50 times within half a hour of play.

     

    I don't expect firefall to last much longer, it absolutely blows my mind that they keep getting funding when they show nearly no progress at all, i played for a month or so a week back, and i played a month or so during the transition from closed to open beta ( i think? ) and the game barely changed, it just got more complicated.

    Content that was added was so minor i had seen it all within a few hours, and most of it i saw multiple times.

     

    i just.. ugh.. I really wish firefall would go somewhere, i really loved playing it, and the framework is so great, but the development team seems so so clueless.

     

    Its a real shame.
