I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone on this entire site ever say that it was a good game, at least not in recent memory, yet here we all are.

So I’ll be the first to say that for all of it’s problems, it’s better than a lot of crap out there and not a complete waste of my time. I even like it enough to get out of the Lurker mode I’ve used my entire internet life.

Gold Star for effort guys, keep up the good work.

forumwarz is a good game, but there is a lot of room for improvement. generally, people on this site tend to focus on the latter part.

Level 35 Camwhore

Oh whoops, I dropped my monster condom that I use for my magnum dong

Voted “used to be good” option, as the game had a lot of potential in the beginning.

The main problems with Forumwarz is it’s extremely linear nature, as well as the the use of gimmicks to occupy us between episodes, rather than new, game-related content.

I don’t mind the linear, mission oriented gameplay (although, CZ could push to make a more “sandbox” environment), but it’s the linear character development system that ****s up the fun. Early on, it DOES seem open to customization, but once you get the hang of it, it pretty much becomes “max out upkeep/frugality, learn all abilities, pump some ego, pump offense/defense”. There’s no room for ‘specialized builds’.

Also, grinding the same forums over and over again gets old; fast. But rather than small amounts of new, periodic ‘filler’ content between episodes, they keep creating gimmicks like contests and Itembuildr. “Falcon****er” was exactly the kind of update that CZ needs to do, but it’s been one of the only attempts at such that they’ve made.

Also, the achievement system (E-Peen) used to be really cool (coming from somebody who, for awhile, had the most available E-Peen), but CZ just keeps making gimmick Peen after gimmick Peen. CZ should be introducing Peen that gets people to play the game, not using them like “Scooby-Snacks” styled rewards. “Collected X (different) pairs of shoes.” “Had 100,000/250,000/500,000/1,000,000/10,000,000/etc. at one time.” “This player is good/evil.” Those are ways that peen can be used to encourage people to keep playing.

Speaking of good/evil, CZ shouldn’t be leaving their ideas untouched. Good/evil doesn’t do anything right now. Early, Trout talked about “factions” that you could join, but the idea hasn’t been explored yet. I realize that there have only been two episodes so far, but these are two ideas that could be developed even BETWEEN episodes.

Anyways, that’s it for me.

Herbaceous, biennial, dicotyledonous , and flowering.

I totally agree with the bumertion that “more things like the Falcon****er quest” are something that the game desperately needs. When you’re done with the main plot, there just aren’t enough external influences to motivate you to do things. All of the endgame content is self-driven, things like “I want to acquire medals”, “I want more peen”, or “I want this item/lots of flezz.” It would be nice to have a bunch of things that are just “this NPC tells you to do something, you can get a reward for it.”.

How long does something like the Falcon****er quest take to create anyway? It seems like all you’d need is two STalk conversations, a task (ideally one that can’t be done in one or two days, a week or two is a good length), and some sort of unique reward. I can’t imagine that requiring a huge amount of development, but I could be wrong.

This is exactly what I’ve wanted for a while, and while they may take a while to get, it’s better than having nothing to work on, at the moment, I’m going for whatever the last Job Points one is (Chai as a Kite?), after that, I’m not really sure what I’ve got left to get, aside from Dom. and stuff. I hope this gets taken on board.

The game is tedious as hell. I’m only around to have fun on IDC and Flamebate. The actual gaming aspects of the game are like chores to me.

MY MEMORY IS THAT OF A SMALL GRAPE

Where is the “gameplay mechanics are boring thusly repetitive so I play the game from time to time but stick around for the community” option?

That’s the only thing I could vote for. The game is, at this point, a novelty. It’s a good novelty but mechanically it’s very simple and gets boring quickly especially when you try to grind for items/money or run multiple characters who have to do the exact same things.

I have ample evidence that ET is a weedy little twerp.

I think the CZ team will be the first to admit there’s a lot of room for improvement. At any given time we have a huge list of what to tackle next.

The problem is that we’re a really small team, so it takes a long time to get things done. In fact, I don’t think there’s a single suggestion in this thread that we don’t plan to do, it’s just an issue of prioritization and scheduling.

It might look easy from the outside, but it’s really hard to please everyone Log in to see images!

Lol. It’s a good game. There are certain counter-intuitive criteria that need to be fulfilled before you can appreciate it properly, sure. But that’s legitimately part of the appeal. Log in to see images!
