Greetings Commanders. We'll soon be merging the following regions:
  • Alpha 1
  • Bravo 1
  • Gamma 1
  • Delta 1
  • Zeta 1
As a result, these regions are now entering a special Blackout Event, which will last one week. When the Blackout Event ends on 6th of November, all players in these regions will be granted a Relocation Facility item which will let them now move to a new region which we will announce next week.
 
The Rewards for the Blackout event will be based on the Territory Leaderboard positions at the end of the event:
  • Rank 1 - 2,000,000 Alliance Currency
  • Rank 2-10 - 500,000 Alliance Currency
  • Rank 11-25 - 250,000 Alliance Currency
  • Rank 26-50 - 100,000 Alliance Currency
  • Rank 51-100 - 50,000 Alliance Currency
FAQ Text
1. What happens if I don’t transfer before the region shuts down?
You’ll be transferred automatically to a randomly selected sector in the new region. You’ll also receive MOVs to replace any lost outposts.
 
2. Will my Alliance be disbanded?
No. Because your whole Alliance is moving to the same region, you will keep your Alliance even if members transfer at different times.
 
3. What happens to my Outposts?
You can’t take Outposts with you, but we will grant you a replacement MOV item for every Outpost that you lose.
 
4. What happens to my Alliance’s territory?
Unfortunately, we have no way of moving territory between regions. We appreciate the time you have all invested in capturing sectors. We ran the Blackout Event in order to give some compensation to all Alliance members based on the amount of territory they held at the start of this region’s shutdown. 
 
5. What happened to Missile Silos and the Mothership?
All events, Missile Silos, territory capturing and the Mothership have now been deactivated. We recommend you all transfer as soon as possible to rejoin the action!
 
6. Why are we being merged with another region?
As a region gets older, there’s an inevitable build up of inactive Facilities. This new region will feature new level 7-10 resource sectors (including Shard Mines) for the first two weeks. This is the first ever instance of these high-level locations and with new opportunities comes new competition!
 
We're happy to answer any questions you may have about the upcoming merge in this thread.

My alliance in Zeta1 is in second place for controlling territory and controls 50,000 sectors.  We're getting the same reward as the number 10 alliance that controls about 600 sectors?  Hardly seems commensurate with the level of effort between number 2 and number 10....

 

Since it takes so long to gain territory I don't expect much change over the week

They should adopt 1st, 2nd and 3rd positions, also would encourage people to do more in events it that was also adopted.

i knew there would be a catch,comn admins,are you so stupid

 

" This new region will feature new level 7-10 resource sectors (including Shard Mines) for the first two weeks. "

 

make this permanent,please 

 

also you do know that in most(if not all)black out servers only the top 10 or less alliances are active therefore making this reward system is pointless

 

  • Rank 1 - 2,000,000 Alliance Currency
  • Rank 2-10 - 500,000 Alliance Currency
  • Rank 11-25 - 250,000 Alliance Currency
  • Rank 26-50 - 100,000 Alliance Currency
  • Rank 51-100 - 50,000 Alliance Currency

Let me get this right. For a year of effort and 700 tiles captured (in this alliance and more in my prior alliance), I get alliance currency worth about $3.00, based on buying shards in a pack. This is even worse compensation than when we had to move last time.

Agreed Indeedo, please re-book into the prize tiers.

Are all 5 above mentioned servers merging onto just 1 new server?

Will the server be larger size wise too? If so what sort of percentage increase.

I agree with others. My alliance has worked hard to get 2nd place and hold onto the 40k sectors but the 10th place aliance owns 160 sectors but we are awarded the same????
Please reconsider the award system.

I agree with the other players comments regarding awards for sectors.
My alliance has worked hard to achieve 2nd place with 40k sectors and has had to fight hard at times to keep them.
The 10th place alliance owns 160 tiles only, how can the awards be the same for us both????.

I am in an alliance on 10nth rank. Being a single player (all others meanwhile have left) and having around 800 tiles. What makes you think I have put in less effort than you?

I am 1 player with 800 tiles, if your alliance is full you have 50 players: 50*800=40k tiles. In fact on a per player basis we have both achieved the same!

I have been regularly been pushed down by lot of the big bullies on the server, so it was a hard fight too. I think I also have deserved the same reward.

do the rewards based on how much your alliance has gained,not what rank you are on the board

They should change their name from HuntedCow to CowFarmer seems all of their effort is to increase their ability to milk their players, not actually improve game play.  I have probably invested $300+ in the game, not counting the hours playing, but I haven't bought anything for months now.  I don't mind paying for entertainment, I'll drop hundreds at the casino in an hour or so, but this just feels like I'm really being manipulated.  

 

All you have to do is look at the events they post.  Defeat units, destroy facilities, tech research, gain power - all designed to require shards if you want to score well.

 

Then look at the "improvements" they make - very few aimed at improving game play for new/smaller players.  When we do get new players it really doesn't take long for them to figure out they have to invest heavily or spend their time with units in the med bay and their hero under constant threat of capture.  Who wants to slog away at that? 

 

But in the end HC is at the mercy of players that have invested thousands of dollars in the game.  They have set up a perverse dependency with the players that support them through heavy investment, but at the same time destroy the pleasure of playing the game for thousands of other players, this limiting their growth potential.

What happened to this?

https://forums.hunte...468#entry981487

The proposed merger would be much older realms (such as Alpha and Bravo), Zeta is still a relatively young region.

 

 

And in addition:

https://forums.hunte...159#entry980483

Thanks for all of the feedback on the game!  I'll be sure to pass your comments along to the development team.  The balance of the game is of high importance to us, and we're looking at ways to ensure that the game is as fair as possible for all players.  I believe there will be a region merge as well in the near future, which should resolve some of the issues with balancing in certain regions.

 

 

There seems to be some misconception, that a merger might help the imbalances in the game. I just can't see, how that would improve things for the small guy, while the game mechanics stay the same. Now there will be 5x as many "untouchables", to pray on the low levels. Formerly a low level could find an abandoned spot, and hope to be missed, when one of the big guns was starting his raid. This will be much more difficult now. Please, reconsider the merger + have another look at the player suggestions. There are good suggestions, to improve the game, and very few (if any), have been implemented.

Edit:

that post was done in june,basicly they lost enough players between now and then (about 4-5months)to include 3 more servers. now that's a big player base loss

 

they take to long, add nothing of real value and lose players like crazy. 

 

and yep,i've made numerous suggestions on that page,nothing been implemented,well, one will be,the lvl 7-10 resource tiles,but wait there's a catch,its only going last 2 weeks, well done admins :angry:  :angry:

I think this whole thing could be a quicker way of killing off the game. Nothing being posted or suggested above is even being acknowledged or addressed.
The extra events are a "cash cow" and nothing really for the players.

Is there any servers with 100 active alliances? Maybe 20 from experience on Gamma it's about 4.
