Honestly unacceptable how often BD goes down and always at similar recurring times. Makes the game unplayable for part of the day. BD’s update was supposed to time maintenance and have it go down once. Not like this. To have the BD Dev say there is nothing he can do about it, and then get no further comment from someone in the company can only lead players to believe, that the company simply no longer cares. Shut the game down at that point instead of working on further updates or trying to improve the population of the game. Why spend time/money on a simply broken game.
This is coming from a player who has spent the better part of his life playing this game and hoping for the best. Most of the time defending the company to other players and speaking up when there were failures to the player base.
Ofcourse, BD still has people spending money on it, people still have an addiction and competitive drive to win and it really seems like Tacticsoft is taking undue advantage.
Shutting down the game won’t fix the issue. Fixing the issues would require TS to get their heads out of their bank accounts and decide to do what is necessary to fix it. That means splitting up SM and BD from the same servers. This was something they promised to do long ago, but then renegaded on that promise, and here we are. BD in its prime, had far more players than now and far less issues with the ticks.
Anyways, this will be ignored by anyone that can actually do anything about it. Just felt like letting off some steam.
It was pretty annoying since most of the downtime happened around the time i was usually free, and the game was fine while i was working or trying to sleep. So i just quit. It’s a lot less stressful now.
Psi was spot on with his explanation I believe. The fixes they implemented were as far as Alex could go. Anything else requires Tacticsoft to work with their SM team and implement big changes. Not something they have been open to do anymore.
