  1. I suggest renaming Mining Drone to Meme Drone, cuz that's what it is at this point.

  2. Fck mod researching price increase for L11 and L12s. Totally unfair. For those who hasnt reached 8m cap will now take about a year to get those high lvl mods. Rich asteroids will cover and increase our daily income? Pff is it gonna give us like a million a day? Lol

    2. Are the planet prices changing in reflection to the level limit increase? Or is that remaining unchanged?

    3. planets are also going up in levels, increasing your income significantly, so it balances out

  3. Why degrade Barrage and it's so hard to play against ghosts. Developers you make a big group!

  6. looking forward to it. I for one am pleased with most of the changes and I dont expect Barrage to be affected anywhere except rs10 and possibly rs11.

  7. I hope it's only level 40 planets that go to 50... Will be really bad to store arts on starter planets now

    1. It says most planets. That means more than half not all. 7 planets are level 40, less than half therefore not most. 4 planets are level 30. My guess is all level 30 and all level 40, equals 11, therefore most.

  8. It is unfair that current 8M cap players have been able to panic buy all the 11 & 12 tech. All the non rs10 corps are going to be facing bond, destiny, veng 12 for years before being able to equalise. I predict people will leave the game in droves.

    1. The game is in end game. Papa is busy developing the next game. Therefore, he just extended the game's life longer in the easiest way while most players have to suffer from it.

    2. Very likely you will never encounter those people. Play at your level and enjoy yourself.

    3. Sadly that is a very valid point. I'm personally RS 9, and in a corp where most people are RS8-9. We sometimes face corps who run barrier 10, Bond 8+, and such expensive mods. It will be very tough now if we get those guys again

  9. I don't see any inconvenience

  10. I admire your work, this project is special, I played it for a while, I never had any problems, well, like every game, several players always want to change their names, the game provides the name change only once, an event should be added , or a new way to change the name in exchange for crystals, both in the players we win and you will win something, $$, everything I expect from the game and that one day he will add a new way to change the name, sometimes mistakes happen and the name can go wrong! add a new way to change the name in exchange for crystals! and fair right?

  11. Love the game. I dont agree w those complaining although admittedly I dont have as much time invested. I have a life long passion for strategy games and this beats them all, except perhaps my beloved chess. But this is 3d chess w graphics and friends. Great game, thanks for creating it!

  12. OK, the update's out and i'm confused:

    "Maximum upgrade level for most planets increased to 50"

    It turns out the planets capped at lvls 15, 20 and 30 are still the same so i still only have 7 upgradeable planets (out of 16). How is that "most planets"?

    I thought RS10 would be a lot closer, but no. What a letdown.

  14. planets might go up in level however spending 4mill for 1 level upgrade seems counter productive?

    ReplyDelete
  15. That rich asteroid, will it continue to spawn in every RS I'll scan until I start to mine it?
    Like if I'll go rs4 and dont touch it, and then scan for RS7 will it spawn in rs7 for me to collect that higher amount?

    1. Yep! Just mined my 1st (2nd RS post-update)

  16. How much tons will the rs11 arts weight?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Its a joke to suggest we wont encounter high lvl players. We regularly face teams 500 + lvls higher in ws with tech we cant hope now to attain for years. Just more imbalance..

    ReplyDelete
  18. Time to give up than. Reaching lvl10+ research... You must be laughing us with this update.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Well, that was the last nail in the coffin for me. Anyone want a farm? I'm not going to stick around for sure now...I'm already tired of trying to get to insane credit caps and then you raise it and all prices of stuff...great. You want to run players off...this is a fine way to do it.

  20. When you say "most planets" can be upgraded to lvl 50... Did you really mean only the lvl 40 ones lol? That is not really most imho and kinda screws over people who haven't reached those caps yet... I expected this update to help us tech high lvl caps faster but apparently you are not interested in anyone but the high lvl peeps.

  21. increasing upgrade levels for all planets would have made this more equitable

  26. How should this statement be understood, exactly: "Rich Asteroid fields: Once per day, every player will have their own asteroid field to mine for additional Credit income. Rich asteroid fields will not spawn after collection until the next day."

    I'm asking about the exact timing of WHEN "next day" is?

    Is there an individual clock on each account, not letting the next rich asteroid spawn on a RS, untill 24 hours have passed since the last harvest?
    Or is each account timekeeping tied to an appropriate time zone (gathered from settings in operating system or otherwise), making it "next day" when you pass midnight in your local time zone?
    Or, a third methodology ....?

    Please explain and elaborate, thank you.

    1. It's probably the same as blue star timings i.e. every 24 hours.

      I first won a round at around 8.30pm. Now the credit reward becomes available every day at that time.

      If i took a few days off, then get a win, the clock resets to the tine of that win going forwards.

  27. Is there a way to know when the Rich Asteroid field is up ?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Not seeing the gold asteroid !!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Do you remember the tech research tree in X-COM TFTD?

    Maybe these changes would make more sense in a chart like that.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Yes we need a timer for the rich asteroid to let us know when it will be back

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yeah the only way now is to guess......and it seems to be later and later each day.

  31. Pourquoi toujours des gens pas content ?
    Ce jeu est gratuit, sans pub, et tellement évoluer pourtant, j'ai payé le pack débutant pour remercier les développeurs,si vous trouvez ailleurs un jeu gratuit sans paytowin changez de jeu sinon arrêtez de vous plaindre. Bonne journée...

  32. what do you need to mine a rich asteroid

    ReplyDelete
  33. + 1 for a timer somewhere in the red star scanner info window showing the countdown until the rich asteroid field spawns again. Similar to the countdown in the blue star scanner for credits.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'm not getting the rich asteroid in any rs2 I have done. It showed up once the first day and I have not seen it since

    ReplyDelete
  35. Each day reddish gold asteroid appears later and later. Very frustrating

    ReplyDelete
  36. +1 for credit asteroid timer or just a set time for all, still loving this game.

    ReplyDelete
  37. The RAF doesnt appear later and later. it is exactly like BLS. it is set to the 1st time you complete or after the 2nd day of no runs when you run it, the RAF will set spawn timer when you completed it. The bonus is you get to run a second one immediately. I enjoy seeing people whine and complain about something they clearly didnt test and know nothing about.

    1. Nobody has the time to test and test and waste credits. Didnt see any bonus 3nd run...
