Atlas Expansion and Team Rollout! April 2018


#297

Did that first.

Also, since I apparently cannot post in the Atlas forums, I’ll put this here:

While waiting for you guys to unjack your servers I spent $200 on another game. :man_shrugging:t3:

Have fun working overtime putting band-aids on things you should have fixed beforehand.

I’m gonna sleep super comfortable tonight in the knowledge that I’m not paying you for it.

:kissing_heart:

Once again way to royally screw up another release. Players said fix the bugs first and you didnt listen…ill be reaching outto apple for a pretty hefty refund now. Thatnms for giving yet another reason to get my money back. I encourage the rest of you to do the same. The only way PG is gonna listen is to hit them in the pocket books and apple is very nice about it i hear


#299

Man this is messed up, new land opened but safe zone isn’t? Can’t set way point, can’t move prims, why you even release the expansion


#300

yep stuck in safe zone, warning cant set way point. Cant move at all everytime i try i get this warning.


#301

If you wait patiently, it’ll load. This happens with every atlas update and reinstall.


#302

It gets stuck at 453/454 for minutes before you have to force quit and download again multiple times.
I wonder how much patience all of us have when we are still playing this game after so many “Known” bugs and glitches :man_facepalming:


#303

Yeah, I believe it’s the same thing everytime. You load everything but the last file which needs several minutes and all you need to do is have patience :slight_smile:


#304

What is this word you say?

Some fancy foreign term I suppose?

:wink:


#305

Translated roughly to ‘in vain’.


#306

I’m sorry, I didn’t specify here the way I did in my support ticket…

I waited 25 minutes for that file to load on a strong wifi connection before thinking maybe it wasn’t a server-side issue and reinstalling.

All in all I waited for that one file to load for about 4 1/2 hours while a massive first-come-first-served land grab was going on that would affect my team for months.

What a shitshow.


#307

I personally force-closed the app at 7:28 central, immediately reopened, and immediately went to Atlas… I was hung on the last file for about a minute… but even with that RELATIVELY minor hang-up, all the outer land a couple territories in was already claimed by the time my Atlas loaded. Even if it hadn’t been, I couldn’t move my prime (failed waypoint over and over).

This was, indeed, a shit show. As many others have mentioned - people have been complaining of Atlas lags and such for as long as I can remember - but somehow it was still deemed a good idea to release a bunch of new land, introduce a bunch of new teams, roll out a whole new thing (Atlas Season) - all a couple hours after the start of a fortification event… and we PAY for this level of quality (or lack thereof)…


#308

and no apology in the forums from PG for another clusterfuck of a roll out…

Spenders spend so PG doesn’t give a crap the roll out was another example of how ill prepared their servers and latency are.


#309

Hi, my name is Suav and I’m a War Drag-aholic.

I’m curious how many times the words ‘MASSIVE FAILURE’ escape someone’s lips in any of the seemingly endless rounds of meetings over at Pocket Gems. After all, the first step in fixing a problem is admitting you have one.

Start owning it guys, then (and I don’t know why I bother saying it because you’re clearly not listening) DO BETTER.


#310

@PgJared @pgecho @pgdave @pgeggtoken

Can we get some sort of response from PG? An update on when these issues are projected to be fixed? An apology? A dismissal? Something?!?

Nothing agitates your player base more than complete silence from y’all. We’re more willing to be patient and understanding if you were just open and honest with us. Transparency goes a long way!


#311

If it makes it any better. In talking to teams that have been in Atlas, many have been collectively working together for the last couple months getting ready for the release. No new teams honestly stood any remote chance unless they were lucky enough to find affliations established in Atlas.
The experienced Atlas teams had their primarchs poised and waiting. Better yet, they waited until a new team claimed it so they could go in for glory and more land. Good strategy.
The part I really enjoyed was the one where we were supposedly in agreement to cohabitate. We moved in. Then were swiftly removed again because another alliance team wanted the space. Then they said we could reclaim again. Lol fool me once…:joy::joy:


#312

Not sure you understand how Glory mechanics work
New teams with very tiny influences will provide next to 0% Glory for older more established teams because world ranking, infrastructure, and troops all count towards the %.

So they didn’t do it for the Glory, they did it for the land ownership.


#313

It’s a terrible mechanic imo… we had a little team with a level 328 fighting us all day long, I would get 1% glory for hitting him, but meanwhile he can get 100% hitting low with destar


#314

What about establishment, alliance and how much lands your teams own? I believe this mechanic will quickly stabilize the map.
Most high level teams won’t even care about glory as long as they get the land. So even this is not fully successful, from what i heard.


#315

Yup agreed that there should be an upper limit as well that mirrors the bottom end of the spectrum, aka if we can hit you for 30% you can hit us for 30% (in NML or on some castle neither of us has owned for 24hrs)


#316

Idk to be honest. AllI know is that we worked hard for 13m gold to start an infrastructure then got decimated before we could even figure out what all the buttons meant or how they functioned.
It was an epically short lived victory
