I would like to make a constructive criticism for you Marcus.
I have the perception that you live on a different plane from the players, perhaps because you do not play your game or because you have no interest in knowing the true opinion of the players and putting all the suggestions and steps in practice.
And then we come to the question: why?
Since I came back to play the only change you made was the creation of 4 worlds, and all the structural problems remain present.
I will not be running away from the topic, but taking advantage of the creation of 2 new pvp-enforced worlds you once again had an authoritarian and solitary attitude.
1) Server Host
Have you ever done a numerical recognition of the number of players who played Huntera? Most were from which country? Can you find out this information?
From what I played I can say that between 80% and 90% of the players were Brazilian, and ALL had a bad ping, mine for example oscillated between 150 and 200+ ms.
Why did not you choose a server in Florida (USA) for Huntera?
What is the interest of players to play in a pvp enforced with so much lag?
Seriously will you keep current rates? This only shows once again how far you are from the reality and hunger of the players.
I think you should hire some professional (coach) to increase your horizons and give a different view, you look like that politician we voted for and we put our trust and lost contact with your voters.
This creation of so many worlds does not make any sense to me, it just fragments the community of players, but it's your opinion and I respect it. I just think it would be the responsibility and common sense of your position to listen, reflect, ask and put into practice the wishes of the community that plays this game.
Thank you very much.
If I granted the wish of everyone, there'd be onbly 1 world and it would be located in Europe.
And that world would be completely dead because of it.
Players often suggest things that will not work out, change this, change that, druid doesn't make enough damage, paladin doesn't do enough damage, there should be shortcut to warlocks so it's easier power exping... and on and on it goes.
I take suggestions into consideration, and then I decide what's best for MasterCores out of that.
Many feel annoyed bu the selection of worlds and locations, but I'm not into this to make a money-milking game.
I'm here to make MasterCores world-spread and successful with plenty of options of world types and locations.
Right now it might go slow, but it's turning, for little more than a week the acticity has just increased day by day.
You wish for higher rates, well.. you do know MasterCores is a serious game?..
Worlds with higher rates would die within weeks, even days possible.
You tell me I don't know the reality, it's the opsit really, most of suggestions given would near instantly kill MasterCores.
For example, all those complaining about game worth, do you realize what would happen if I actually removed it?.. how long would MasterCores have before all serious players would have retired when retired high lvls login to take their "daily frags"?.
or suggestions to increase frags, pretty much same result there, just slightly slower.
Don't get offended by me, but don't speak of it like I'm not in touch with the reality, I do what I feel is best for MasterCores and you should be thankful I don't make every suggestion come true.. if so you'd have just 1 world, with boring plain 7.4 server with barely no place to hunt.

Host usa? That's a shame. Most of your players are brazilian/south-america. I'd love to play this server if I could have a decent ping, unfortunally seems like you don't care about the players who supported your server all the way
I've explained this topic many times before, hosting world in Brazil is not only very unstable, but also very expensive.
Demera alone, cost more than 800 Euro/Monthly and still a lot of Brazilians have issues playing smoothly.
Vint Hill is the closest I can get with garantueed stability, like Azera and Benera.. anything else than Vint Hill will be unstable, and possible to expect a lot of downtimes due to DDos.
I did try out a host in Texas once, which failed to stay online when it got hit by the default DDos that MasterCores are targeted with on daily basis.
Oh, when Demera has crazy issues in November, I switched to another "very good company", if you remember.. That failed hard when they couldn't keep the server up because they couldn't handle all the DDos.
That switchover and all the issues around it, costed me more than 1,500 Euro.
1,5k Euros wasted, because I didn't want to move Demera to USA, I did everything I could, to keep at least 1 world in Brazil, and I believe I should get credit for that, because I'd be saving 500+ Euros/Monthly if I relocated Demera to USA, not to mention the network would be a lot more stable too.
I'm not avoiding creating new world in Brazil to fuck with you, I'm avoiding it because it's crazy expensive and very unstable.
Also, more than 95% of Brazilian players, on "Brazilian OTs", are actually playing OT's hosted in Canada (Montreal), Did you knew that?
Montreal is even further north than New York (Benera).
