State of the Fleets

Postby Legho » May 11th, 2011, 5:23 am

As far as I know there a few of old TDZK people currently playing Fleets.

I am interested in hearing their honest opinions about the game and it's potential future. I myself tried it during beta and didnt enjoy it very much, thus having no desire to return to playing it. But this doesnt mean I'm not curious about how exactly it is doing. Did it prove to be successful? Perhaps some of you have first-hand information from Lanna or Jerle about how they perceive the future of Fleets.

The reason I am asking is simple and very naive. At one point the admins implied that If Fleets proved to be a financial success, than there might be a possibility of them trying to revive TDZK. I know the chances of that happening are extremely slim, but as long as there is hope, I am unable to make myself stop believing that it might actually happen one day.

No wai! They just fixed a bug... that they already fixed before. But this time it only took them a week! Last time it took them less than a day. They've been busy with that "real life" non-sense again.

On a serious note, Jerle has said (to the best of my recollection) that they tried to make fleets more casual friendly and less deep strategical and ended up with neither. And that they would try to take it back to the strategic if they had time/if their other projects work out/something. I cba to find exactly what he said.

So Jerle doesn't have the slightest idea what he want's to do with Fleets?
<Iccyh> Hey!
<Iccyh> Ghent is untagged
<Iccyh> we should recruit him
<Dazzle> oh he is?
<Rodin> ...0.0
<BaronTroskey> please dear god no...

In the end, it wasn't about the game at all, and it never really was.

Knowing is one thing, implementing is another, and bills must be paid regardless.

I haven't played in over a year, got tired of playing (and getting beaten by) the same people over and over again.

True. Fleets went bust incredibly fast. It tried to cash in on the facebook social craze and sort of failed. Sad but not unexpected.
