View Full Version : Eliminate Botters Forever Garanteed
I think most would agree that this game does not involve a great deal of skill, it is mostly a matter of how much money someone is willing to pour into bigpoints gullet with very little in return. It would take years to accumulate enough uri for a single drone. Get real folks. The banner says free, but if you use anythiing but X1 and 100cr missiles you are fighting an uphill battle that you are destined to lose (and ya better not use too many of those cheap missiles or you lose whatever gain you were going to make).
So I'm suggesting that Bigpoint\DarkOrbit slightyly alter what already exists within the game framework and bring more real skill into the game and an interesting side benefit
"IT WOULD COMPLETELY ELIMINATE BOTTERS FOREVER AND THEY WOULD NEVER RETURN"
So what is this simple idea, turn all the resources floating around on all the maps into damage causing asteroids. Botters wont be able to bot because they would eventually be destroyed, smalll agile ships would have a slight advantage over the larger less manuevrable ships within these asteroid fields.
What about the people who turn off the resources?
turn the resources into integral part of game, wonrt be able to turn them off
I would quit if they did this. (Already quit). I wouldn't like flying across the map and popping every time. The resources are everywhere, yeah?
So.. not only do we have pilots dropping direct damage mines all over the place but now you want all these resources out there to blow us up as well?
I have not seen a resource in 3 years on this game. I have them off so while I'm killing someone I don't loose my lock by clicking on a rock!!
Simply Ridiculous, further more, if you feel this game takes no talent (skill) or technique, come to GA1 and look me up. I'd be happy to show you the difference of having and not having.. skill :p
Thats the idea you would either have to mpick them up, blow them up, or fly around them. Granted i would have to say that the amount of resources on the map would have to be reduced and made more maze like. I didnt say that the game doesnt require some skill and strategy. What i said is that the dominant factor in an individuals success or failure in the game is how deep there pockets were. Such a change would as i said introduce a great deal more skill in the game and give the smaller ships a chance provided of course they are close enough to an asteroid field. Really dude are you afraid you would have to actually earn that 1-2-3 shot kill. Most importantly the botters would be eliminated from the game, automated flight in such conditions would destroy the botter before he cheated us all. The rocks would not do a great deal of damage, maybe as much as a 310 rocket, maybe half that, but damage none the less. The autobotters simply would not be abnle to withstand the constant erosion of there hull.
Thats the idea you would either have to mpick them up,
Only the lower level players pick up resources. Mid-higher level players just use skylab. Most mid or high level players consider raw ores a waste of cargo space that could be used for sep or prom.
blow them up
This could be abused easily. See a clan you are at war with? Just blow up any nearby ore they are about to pick up to slow their progress.
or fly around them
The gaps between the lumps of ore are small. I doubt many ships (maybe eggs) could fly through em and flying around the ore would be a waste of time.
Granted i would have to say that the amount of resources on the map would have to be reduced and made more maze like.
But this would be slowing the progress of new players.

It wouldn't give them a chance. It just hinders their progress if anything. Chances they'd get popped in the first hour of playing if this was put in.

Tbh. I would rather have botters than end up getting popped from flying into a few lumps of terb.
it wouldnt be too different than the so called red and blue "nebulas" located in the pirate maps. Wouldnt the resources provide ships with some cover.
P.L. " What are you doing, you're not actually going into an asteroid field"
Han " They would be crazy to folow us wouldnt they "
P.L. " you dont have to do this to impress me "
C3 " The posibilities of successfully navigating an asteroid field is approxiamately 3,720 to 1"
Han " NEVER tel me the odds "
For future reference, the 'Other' section is the safest part of the forum to post in if you are unsure of where to post an idea. As this idea is not a new company or a new map, I will be closing this thread and directing all of you to the other identical thread in the 'Other' section.
