My nickname in game is Midd Le Finger. Im the leader clan „Kombinat H8”. In this post i want to start discussion with DEV's and other players about future Lost sector and all that problems which i see.
I play about 2 months so i can write about my opinions.
I want talk about Lost Sector because i think more communication with players and more discussion with dev will be good for all. If someone DEV can answer for this post will be great. Bc I wrote post with my suggestion and noone didnt answer from DEV;s. If someone has problem with english I can translate on russian.
Like i said i want start discussion bc on this moment i dont know which way to follow that game.
I like Lost Sector and i have big respect for people who created Lost Sector. It was fantastic move and idea for all people who likes jagged alliance or fallout or another tactical games.
On this moment we have alpha version (93 update) and we are going into beta. I m player who played a lot of mmo like world of warcraft, league of legends, dota 2, starcraft, quake 1 / 2 / Arena so i have experience about games with multiplayer.
I think – maybe this is wrong idea – but if i play lost sector i want talk about good and bad things in game.
First problem for me is bad BALANCE. Balance for pvp and pve. This game has big problem with that. I ll try explain that for PVE mode and PVP mode
We dont have too much mission on this moment and first problem for me is..”..Why im doing this mission/quest..”..I dont have any information about loots. I dont have any information about chance on better loot. I think it will be good idea if we can grab better items from bosses like Anihilator or Ghost or Copkiller. Special bags from bosses with special loot. I think this not problem for u guys(DEV;s). This is pure idea from world of warcraft. All people who walk to instance wants better items and they know which items they can grab. U should create list with items and the percentage of the chances. For example CopKiller has ...M249 saw Green (20 % chance) Wrench green ( 40% chance) Berreta White (55% chance) etc....Special items only from bosses..Ofc we need list with items which I can find on antoher territories For example on Contrabandits I have chance on..Black Roger 30% Collector Carbon Foam 20 % Green Knife 5% etc
I dont want talk about AI bc this is not big problem for me.On this is moment is (almost) good. Ofc i want more smart NPC but i understand this is only Alpha.
I think will be good if all melee items will rework On this moment we have not balanced this kind of weapon. Only Baton and police baton has addicted skills (daecreas MS) but...wrench or basballbat are useless. For me Knife = Bleeding, Baseball Bat = Stun (less than grende ofc ) Wrench = Blind (less than graned too). This is only proposition but i think this is good moment on discussion about melee weapons.
In last post i wrote about “exit” on pve. Still we do not have. I dont need on PVP but on PVE is very important.Pls DEV just create that. PLEASE. I know it was in game but we need that again. We need EXIT on PVE
I know this is only alpha version so i dont want more mission (but it will be great) i need fix this mission for example „freaks” Total unbalanced quest. One solution vs freaks is roof on high building with ladders and block this ladders. First problem ..Freaks stacks all time..Second problem freaks has too much MS..too much and this is problem if i dont want use tactic with roof.
Pve = grind ...Pve = farm.... Like i said i play 2 months and i have so many tags, chips and anothers badges from pve …...and what? And i still dont use them....We need any solution with this tags..
We need NPC with exchange. It will be good bc more people will want to go on pve for tags.
For example 20 Chips regulators u can exchange for 1 polymer or 10 prisoners tag for 5 mechanical parts. So u can trade your badges from pve on resource or we can switch 200 diggers tag for green Mk13...this is only example.. but i think this is not problem for u (DEVs).
We need more fun from PVE. Pve = Loot not only experience or cash.
I think all quest has too less experience if i can do only once day Triplex and i have from this mission only 1300 EXP plus for kills this is not enough.
I have big problem with pvp. First problem for this mode game is too less ppl in game. All time i play with players which i knows. Thats why i wrote to DEV about translation to polish. I worked with few buddies from my country (Poland) on translation about 1 month and we still work on that...I translated website bc this is good commercial for this game..I think this is good way for more new players in Lost Sector . In my country we have almost 90% games translated and this is fantastic way because many more players will be interested game. More players = more fun. And now we have too less ppl to pvp.
Second problem is ..All class are unbalanced.. On pvp all time i see juggernaut like a main class. All time I see one tactic on pvp “MarathonMan”. Only mobility and who will be first on finish. This is not nice tactic. Juggernaut needs rework. This class must has more defence but he must have less mobility. He has too much movement points. All class must works in game not only juggernaut with Dozer, with shield, with machinegun. Jugger is too strong. He must be like a “slowly wall”. Support needs rework about action points for all activity items. For example if i want put camera i needs 75 BP ..this is too much.. I think 50AP for Camera will be enough. Radar, Mines, Uav has too much AP for use too.. Thats why this class is not good on pvp.. Ofc sometimes if u have more practic if u have good map u can use this class very well. Less AP for active items will be better. It will be good way for support on pvp.
Commando needs rework on riffles. Almost all riffles needs more power...and better aim.. All riffles shot from left to right side..WHY?...i dont feel this weapons..I dont feel damage from this weapon..Of course if i have AUG3 +15 ..this is almsot good..but...this AUG3 +15 and this is only “almost”...Something is wrong with riffles...
Sniper is good class for pve and (almost) on 4v4 and maybe he is good on 3v3 ....Someone can say...i dont have right ...maybe...but i think problem for sniper are maps. We dont have too much maps good for sniper. Too much obstacles or maps are too small..
Few weapons needs rework too - like a dozer(too much dmg..TOO MUCH) or RPG (this AIM is ...really..I can throw a stone straighter )
I think will be better if u (DEVs) create new pvp mode..where i can take choose map .....Grade for weapon etc....Special mode with much more options Special mode where i can choice special rules ...only sniper only small map..etc..
I like pvp so much ..but i play only 2 months and sometimes i cant win vs clan with better items (blue +15) so i prefer on this moment lower lvls (6 -10). Ofc if i lose one match and i start next when i know who is my enemy i can try find good tactic but this is still hard. Ofc someone can say...Play more..buy better items..But this not good idea if i have still the same players and pve doesnt give me better items..only real cash...so ..this is question to DEV: “..This game is Pay2Win or Free2Play..”. So i think if i can downlevel from 15 to 6 why i cant stop lvl for example 8 or 10. I think pvp with 8 lvls are better more fun..and this matches has more balance. Pls DEV create some kind to „stop leveling”.It will be great.
I wrote one month post with suggestions and i wrote we need Counter for Turns/Clock turns.
We all needs know which turn is now..How many turns we have to suddenly deaths...Little counter in right corner (FIRST TURN...12 TURNS..etc) We need this clock so much....i need...this is big problem for u DEV?
On this moment we have 4 classes ...all class has skills ..we have 3 kinds grenades (or more) .and only 1:30 mins for move, for use all skils for use all items plus shot (with useless „movie camera” which take my time from turn). And I need hide my ass...so i think we need more time for turn in pvp match..ofc..im newbie..but i think we all needs...This game is tactical ??...or maybe this is arcade game ??..On this moment we have about 1:30 min...2 mins will be better....too less time...maybe only for me..
Big problem for me is ...I think on this moment i see a lot of people with “superspecial” powers from Marvel;s comics or directly from „Avengers”. Enemies can see me behind the wall like Hunter. Enemies has more movemant speed. Someone can say...U cant play....they are better ...they have drugs or another superspecial items..NO WAY!! I can count...I know how much i need AP on shot from dozer. How much command or jugger has mobility. I cant proof all cheats. For example I stay behind wall. I dont see enemy . He doesnt see me. I didnt see him and he didnt see me. But He exectly knows when he must use Adrenaline?...SKILL??? NO WAY..MAGIC?? NO WAY?? pure cheats ...what can i do? Screenshot? Or maybe do u need movie from twitch tv? What i should do? I can create list with ppl who (i think) use hacks..And what? What dev or supermoderator can do? Nothign?this is big problem ....big problem for all new players..who wants play pvp but still he meets cheaters..this good for Lost sector or not?
I dont care who comes which country..Im from Poland but in Lost Sector i dont care who is my enemy...If u come from russia or ukrain or jamaica i dont care.. I WANT KICK YOUR ASS ON BATTLEFIELD..So..I want more respect for ppl from my country i want more respect for all ppl from whole world..This is russian game but I dont care..This is only game and i dont want make screen from chat where i see something shit about ppl from poland...If someone has problem with that..this is big bullshit.....
Take the gun and meet me on the battlefield, if you're so articulate
PEOPLE MORE RESPECT FOR OTHER PEOPLE...
I think DEV u need fix few simple bugs and make Lost Sector more balanced. We dont need next armour. We dont need next weapon. We dont need superspecial animation for death..
We need trade for tags. We need fix bugs in mission. We need kill all cheaters. We need kill all cheaters and burn them on ash. We need fix UI and make more usefull. We need more balanced PVP.
Maybe this post is too negative but i want help and that was only my opinions..i try help all time ....
i translated with ppl this game on polish..(hard works)..we translated website....so i wanted start disscusion . This game is very close to Beta...I think it will be good idea create first cells/sections in antoher countries. From poland we have a lot of ppl. In lost sector u have few ppl from Turkay, German, Sweden, Croatia, UK, France so it will be good start for Lost Sector like a international game. This is good moment for Lost Sector discussion about that..
I just want play Lost Sector bc this is very good game..and thank u guys for created
Few questions dircetly to (Dears) DEV's :
Can u tell us about your idea with this game ? What do u want do in future?
Do u want put this game on Steam ? (bc i saw u had green light but still I dont see Lost Sector on steam)
Do u want Lost Sector for less ppl who likes jagged..or maybe do u want create game like a League of Legends from Riot (giant in E-sport) ?
Do u want Lost Sector in E-sport?
Lost sector will be more tactical or strategy??
Lost Sector wil be P2W or F2P?
Do u have any software Anti-Hacks in client?
On the end i have few very simple propositon:
-Mailbox which i can use to send items to other players (for example trade) I dont want wait when ill finish my mission or i need wait when my seller/buyer will finish his quest...
-Problem in this game is communication. I know this is russian game but i think we live in XXI centuary so we have google translator for example or another website where we can translate ...I just want copy from chat...and put f.e to Google translator.....
-create one npc to auction and other to trade and third to crafting...
-big problem with Aim if i have any obstacles in line of sighti cant aim. i dont see dot..this aim is not good...
Sorry for too long post ...but...
