I think the new map was a mistake. Splitting an already small and shrinking playerbase was toxic.

Nontheless we are here now and have to decide and once again I state that this forum is no valid instrument for feedback. What will the forum say? The forum that constists mostly of harcores and pvp-ers wants crowded servers and easy pvp. So They will always want pops of 50-70 people per server.

Having only high popped servers will force many amateure, beginners or even good solo players in unfavorable pvp scenarois and ultimately push them away from the game.

 

A few weeks after the messure, there will be 20-30 pops left again and the vicious circle starts again.

 

I might do a whole topic about the feedback bias you are currently falling for, but I am not sure if I have the motivation

I agree with Lauchi.

And the map (Oregon should be four times as big as Colorado, how should the Players meet there? then there now not enough Players for Oregon.
I think some People dont like the Bridge System of these map...


So, how is the plan for the future? If Oregon full released, you want only this one map with one single Server?

I don't know if it goes in this section, buttttt.
Put a ping limit on the servers in Europe, many people from North America and South America play there and both servers are empty.

-Please add 5 max and a no limit server for rockyford, trading lounge, and smallville for pvp servers in NA and EU.

-Please make atleast half the spawns be inside cities or towns so that Official servers isn't 90% sniping each other on hills and woods.

-Please move zombies to be deeper in the woods surrounding clearview, and in the woods between boulder and whitestone. (perhaps add a super zombie or alien there)

Thanks for your feedback here. Right now, we can't really like just delete the map again that would be a shame. If you have further idea(s) what to do here feel free to share them with us!

Guys, keep in mind our plans here. First of all it's currently just the size of Colorado so not THAT big yet and second of all we have our "dynamic events" idea. We plan on making a lot of interesting new content and features and things to explore. In the end, we think that's what will make the map very interesting. Not just a filled up server.

This is the perfect section to write this! Thanks! I see what you mean here but we can't just ping limit every single server in Europe. We are aware of the high amount of players playing here from different regions with high ping but as you might have seen in our recent patches is that we are developing counter-measures to that. (For example the anti-lagg switch system)

Let us know if you have any further feedback!

I think Launchboy brings up a good point. The playerbase for NA servers is very small. I scan through it and see a few here and a few there. I would like to suggest that maybe just maybe, you are giving us too many options when it comes to where to play. I understand options are a good thing, they totally are! However, when our player base is so small in NA it's crippling us IMO. I know this probably isn't an easy fix and I imagine you can't just remove content on NA or force NA players to stay on their own server (as mentioned some goto euro server for that high pop. I even tried it myself but that high ping...is a real killer) but perhaps if you say made 1 or 2 servers tops and made them open world... (which from what I've seen is all NA player base seems to play on MOSTLY) Then perhaps, we would see a much better product overall. More people playing equals more fun for us all. Right now we are all split up all over the place and it just sucks to be frank.

Do away with all these server options for now, until we reach a large player base again. Then you can add in all the whistles and bells you'd like. I feel like you have some great ideas but expanded too rapidly for the current player base.

So basically what I'm saying is. ... 

NA Servers or all servers if you'd like.

Open world
Host 1 or 2 tops
Do away with the pvp BR STarter servers etc. Although I'd like to mention here Most of us NA do play on the starting servers and I personally believe that is do to the loot (which I enjoy but feel could be taken down a bit) as well as the free 'fast travel'  I say keep the free fast travel. I think it really helps with the dull running from point a to point b because this game never did have much going on for itself outside of the towns and citys and such. That's just my opinion some might hate the idea that fast travel stays free if you did it like that, but numbers say otherwise we all play on the servers that have it enabled.

Anyway,
Thanks for taking your time to read my long winded post. These are the ideas I had. I enjoy this game a great deal as I did when it first hit the market years ago. I played back then as well. I'd love to see it grow and be a major player in the market again!

Wish you the best!

Thank you for taking the time to write this very clear post. Thanks for the feedback first of all. It's much appreciated!

 

As of right now, with the changes we have done, what do you think of the current available servers in the NA region?

 

More feedback regarding the current servers list is welcome guys!

 

Best Regards,

 

Sven

Hey Sven, it's very awesome of you to take the time to reply and read my comment!

Currently my favorite NA server is Colorado V1 on Survival mode.

Open world server's have taken a back seat for me since I found out we can play on the old Colorado map which is still my personal favorite. Not to mention the slower pace of the loot in survival feels much better to me overall.

I have noticed a higher player pop on NA lately since the patch. I haven't been playing open world much, but I have looked a few times and some servers seem to have a bit more people in them. I still feel we have to many options in  terms of where to play OPEN WORLD overall but that's just my two cents. Forced interaction by making only a few servers would create more pvp IMO. IF that is what someone wants or is after.

I am personally pretty much playing survival Colorado V1 exclusively now. It's really what I find the most enjoyable in this game, I understand other's may not but I do. So I am happy the server I play on seems to have a decent population  at times. (Not like the OLD days but I don't expect that or even need that.)

You guy's are working to improve the game and I see that. I hope other's see it as well. I recently went prem and will probably get my in game partner to go prem as well. We both have been enjoying the game alot.

Thanks for your hard work. Keep it up. :)

Hey! Sorry for the later reply. Thanks so much for the feedback first of all.

I understand you are a player from the North America region. My first question is: Why can't you play the "old Colorado" map? I'm not entirely sure what you mean with this.

Too many public servers in NA. Feedback noted.

 

Thanks for the advanced feedback! It's much appreciated!

 

Best Regards,

@Sven Here's something the community would absolutely love to have and I am sure would bring many subscribers as a result. Make one PVE server for each region on the map Colorado for premium servers. Also even though population is greater on on eu I think there is to many servers and not enough players. Also please make zombies more spread out in the entire map for example in the woods not just in city's the update where you doubled the amount of zombies made the game so much more fun to play and what brought me back after a few months of not playing.

Being a Premium player myself, I've never had trouble farming on Premium so I don't see the point in adding PvE servers in Premium. Premium servers have one person here or there or none at all most of the time, plus when people join and there is another person in the server, they want to add you because we use the Premium server as way to loot good shit without killing one another. If the Premium servers were popular and used in the same way people would use Open World servers, then I'd understand what you're suggesting, but right now, I see no point in adding Premium PvE to an already empty Premium server. There are a lot of Premium users out there but most of us just like to use the regular PvE servers so we can be with friends too.

I agree 100% with what @V A C A N C Y just said. I just spent the last 4 hours in a PvE server and for the majority of that time there were only 3 PLAYERS on the server. I see this as a testament of the fact that this game is on it's last legs. I can remember a time when we had better weekend events where there were no less than 40-50 players on. <-----(just another reason to do better with the garbage events we've been seeing over the last few weeks) PvE has no business being in the premium server group due to the fact that loot on an open world PvE server is so easy to obtain.

There is no regular open world pve servers except for private servers which cost a ton of money or are either full most of time. Not only that but I have experienced players killing you constantly on the pvp premium servers due to the premium loot and such. Stating that the pve servers are empty most of the times is 100% entirely wrong and would bring many players back to the game. It doesn't have to be just premium servers though. I am just saying that because the developers are greedy and giving them incentive to add them because it adds profit for them that and vehicles are only enabled on premium and private servers. Here another idea how about make most of the premium servers pve instead.

Premium servers are empty most of the time. There is only 1 or 2 or 0 server count most of the time. Also, making Premium servers PvE, while good for the business, won't really change much anyway. Even users with Premium still look on regular PvE servers so we can be around friends and other people. Right now, Premium servers are dead and they've been always. NA can barely hold in Open World and Hong Kong and Europe are normally the most populated regions. We don't need all these new servers when we can barely hold a constant high number of pop on PvE and Open World. Right now it looks good when we have a number in PvE. But make Premium PvE only and you're splitting that already weak number. Right now new players or current players without Premium accounts can't even see how many are playing in Premium. That info is hidden. So imagine a sudden 40 people hiding in premium then you have new players or regular players who think PvE regular is dead because they can't see what's in Premium.

I gave up my premium acct for the very reasons Tyrelis mentioned. Why bother going to collect loot on a premium server just to have a pvp player KOS you and take your loot.. You do the work, they profit. Nah, definitely not worth it ( for me anyway ) just for the other benefits. I don't travel about the board much...so not much saved there.  Daily rewards not super high dollar like the rifles I lost on premium, and I really don't usually die much ( I don't PVP so not dying every 2 minutes)  so not really saving there either...I might get it back one day, but I would rather they have at least one PVE server on premium that I don't have to deal with PVP sniper players on there. You want to shoot players?? Go ahead, be my guest, by all means!  But Please, Shoot at those who WANT TO PVP, and NOT those who DONT..  I don't understand why some think that everyone wants to PVP?? I play this game to NOT PVP. It was the one thing I enjoyed was that they actually enjoyed having a PVE element. Now, however, it seems everything caters to the PVP players and totally forgets the PVE players. A chunk of the player population is PVE.  Where are they during big events?   They sure aren't on the PVP servers. The game killed the PVE aspect when they decided only super zombies and aliens dropped boxes and sxinbones no longer spawned. But hey, what do I know. Lets just keep doing events that no one likes, keep pandering to the PVP group that's hell bent to run all of your PVE players off , and have nothing , not even 1 PVE server where your PVE players are SAFE from your PVPers, even the ones willing to pay premium to help pay for it!!!

This is all well and good and you have valid points, My argument here still stands, how do you get PVP players then to leave people alone who aren't into PVP who PAID their 600 GC  for the privilege to loot on the premium servers? Are the devs going to provide some sort of restrain to prevent that?? No,?? SO... Again, where is my incentive to fork over money to get another premium acct?? Oh yes, while there may only be 1 or 2 people " ON" the premium servers, that doesn't count those who ghost in.. IE have a character already in position at popular looting locations, ready to log in shoot you, take your loot, log out gone!! SOOooo… LOL yea... keep it man!
