    Mind Has Changed

    When you want to be the center of the world so bad that you cut an entire continent in half lul To your point: Every region you suggest there has at least 1 location with own servers. I dont really know what your revolutionary suggestion there is. People from one region would not want to go to another and they certainly dont in other games. Why? Because a) In other games there is actually a vivid playerbase in every region. NewZ has times on which whole regions are dead. YOu need to go to EU to have pvp or join a BR. And because b) Lag in this game is not a disadvantage. You can argue wether it is an advantage, but the fact is that when I join a brazilian League of Legends Server, I am the one that has to live with the massive lag while others dont. As soon as people from South America and Asia are no longer able to join EU servers, the game dies there. No point in playing a game that is only playable for 2 hours a day. Apart from that geographical distance does not necessarily represent ping 1:1. Europe and NA have (for economical reasons) better connection than others and it is actually perfectly poosible to play in EU servers as a north american and vice versa. The ping issue has been there for ever now, but unfortunatelly the only real solution (that does not kill the game) is growing the playerbase. Is this possible? I guess. Is it going to happen? Maybe not. In my opinion you guys should try and focus on enjoying NewZ as long it is still there. Maybe things get better, maybe they dont. In the end the piling up complaints wont help here. The devs are aware of the problem, I just dont see anything they can do.

    Vending Machines

    Can´t we just basically copy the Marketplace or Auction house from all the MMORPGs? Same bidding system as in platforms like ebay Just like in World of Warcraft, people submit their items, name a starting price and get back the money. I know when buying ammo or guns, you dont want to do this 1by1, but just like for the crafting materials in WoW you can say "buy the 300 cheapest Mausers with a maximum price of 15k per sniper" and the shop automatically does that. The Interface might require some work, but the coding does not

    Day Only Servers?

    I am not really a fan of night/day, too You can clearly see the number of player dropping during the night. For some time I always played Open world when it was daytime and one BR during the night. Having daytime only in Open World might not be too crazy of an idea, it is just about all the K-NVGs etc. loosing purpose. Maybe you should add some place like a mine or underground parking lots where you need NVG even during daytime?

    If NewZ was a person

    Yo, just a quick thought of mine. During branding class we had to think about what kind of person a certain brand would be if it turned human. I did the same for NewZ, here is my go at it: NewZ is like that one ex-girlfriend from years ago. You had several on and off relationships but it never lasted for long. I mean she is quite hot at first glance and and you always think that with the right make-up or in the right dress she is actually a 10. But the closer you look and the longer time you spend with her, she will feel rather like a 6 and even like a 3 at times. Your friends keep telling you she is shit, but you just dont listen. In the end you always break up without regrets and happy to end that chapter of you life. Sadly you do not learn from your mistakes and she seems to be always waiting for your call and ready to come over for a hot night. And those nights come. You know its bad and you know it is a mistake, but in those nights, you are either sad, lonely or just drunk and horny, you are overcome by the desire to hook up with her again. The first night is good, maybe even the second, but after that it becomes worse. You try to repeat that first night but you keep seing more and more faws. The plan of breaking up grows in the back of your had and after some time you just end it again. But eventually you will become weak again, especially when you happen to run across her in that new hot dress. This will continue until one of you two will no longer be on the market... I think the analogy is quite good. Do you associate another kind of person with NewZ? On a sidenote this kind of brand image is really really bad and the devs should work on it definitely.... Lauchi

    Moving on

    I can unserstad the issues and I also think they should be fixed or at least adressed, but I don´t like the wording and methods. I mean seriously what is this? You try to blackmail a gamecompany by not playing the game anymore? How narcassistic can you become? I just imagine somebody posting on the Blizzard Dorum saying "Change this and that or I wont come back" You don´t like a game? Dont play it! You don´t like a product? Don´t buy it! You want to help them? Come up with constructive criticism. "Ban asian players" is not really an answer. This game needs Thailand and Brazil because they are a major share in the playerbase.

    Maps - Battle Royale

    Well here we are. I mean I already said that a lot, but once again asking the community won´t help. There will not be a clear answer to the map-issue and the users in the forum won´t magically all decide for one map to stay. You arleady said that you pretty much HAVE TO do those steps, just do it and just explain to the people. Asking for what to do and then doing what 65% of the people want will result in the other 35 being utterly pissed. I mean we all know that it will hurt cutting down even further, but right now the mode is bleeding players pretty hard. I totally gave up on BR outside of the late afternoon hours and people will give up on the mode in general. Just introduce the rotation already and properly announce it here and in loading screen every time it changes. You can also do slight pvp or balance changes to the maps out of rotation and use player feedback for that. Having a map coming into rotation with a few little tweaks and changes every time will result in players trying at least a few times. I even suggest the cut to be really drastical, which means one map with one mode in all the smaller servers and one server with both modes in EU. Sorry I am so negative about so many things, I just fear creeping slow death

    Is this game still

    I have no problem finding friendly people. YOu just need to be a superior player. Seing the other person first + contacting through group invite oder chat helps Most of the time the rank indicates the chances of the other peoson being friendly, high ranks usually have no need for team/friends

    DevBlog - Missions & Contracts

    Yo, I feel like there is more to mission design than just "do this to get that". There should different kinds of missions for different purpose and different players. There should be a set of (one time) missions with the goal of introducing the game. A range from basics like killing zombies with different weapns, moving arround the map, using commands or game features, inviting players into group or spending this and that amount of time on a certain server. There also has to be some sort of weekly questset that is totally worth it. It promotes consistent gameplay and can help to motivate players to switch gamemodes. "Kill 10 different players on rocky, find a potato in colorad, kill 5 supers" Those quests can go from basic to grindy and are just at the purpose of keeping players active and entertained I would also add some quests that result in achievements. Things that require specific tactics or a certain degree of luck like "killing somebody with a nade" or "killing a player with a nailgun from more than 30 meters" Those quests are close to what big shooters like counterstrike or CoD do and can be easily copied to a certain extent. Those missions are rather trophies for players to hunt and play for and offer depth to the core community Last I think there should be temporary or event based quests. You can find a contract or a quest-nps randomly pops up like an airdrop. Maybe everybody on the server automatically gets assigned a quest and whoever finishes it first gets the amazing reward. Those quests are limited in time and offer action packed gameplay You find a contract thats says "Gain at least XY experience during the next 15 minutes" or "loot an item box within 10 minutes" Those quests instantly put you unter pressure and there is a chance of failure, hence the rewards can be bigger. Those contracts might be optional to be bought in the store which offers a great advantage as you can prepare quest-npcs can have nice possibilities as well. Like an average joe NPC pops up at ridgeway and asks you to keep a certain area free of zombies or to bring him this and that item. people will rush there, pvp and competition happens global quests are cool as well. It is a race for the reward and people compete for it. "Go and be the first to kill 30 zombies" is a dull quest, but when you have to be faster than the server it can actually be fun. The options are huge with this one and i can see a lot of things working. "Conquer the campos clan territory" is a good example. In the beginning its first come first serve, but eventually a fight over tha flag breaks out. More and more people join in and in the end its a big fight. The longer the mission runs, the more people try and die, the bigger the rewards could get. I mean that would be an artificial pvp fiesta extravaganza Just a few quick thoughts of mine, A detailed list is really time consuming Lauchi

    Suggestion for regaining players

    You precisely describe survival? New game-modes are bad as you can not divide the community even further
