Play in squads in PvP!



Pilots! Today all procedures have been completed to ensure the most comfortable conditions for squad battles. We remind you that the maximum size of pilot groups in PvP has been increased to four!

The new squad matching system analyzes each squad pilot’s abilities and selects the most appropriate opponents. Queue time has also been greatly reduced!

In the near future we plan to continue the development of large mercenary squads in combat. Playing in large squads will be further rewarded. The new squad interface allows to quickly and easily find partners for playing as a team. Also, the new interface will contain social elements and will maintain communication between the pilots, who have ever played in one squad and team.

But playing should be comfortable not only for players in squads, but also for solo pilots. We will continue to work on matchmaking further. You will hear of all the changes in future patch notes.

Sincerely
Star Conflict team

Update 1.3.0 ‘Age of Destroyers’ is live!

Happy New Year to all our pilots! In this update you'll see new locations, new assignments and adventures. Shipyards about to launch Destroyers — huge and powerful ships of an entirely new class. The first ships will be available to all pilots in January. We recommend that you start to gather the necessary resources for building them right now. Be the first to get a new ship! They are several times larger than frigates, boast unmatched firepower and new, unique abilities. This is a new age. The age of destroyers.

New assignments are coming from Miss Frost. Keep an eye on stage progress in the news on the official site. Participate in faction competition.
In addition, all fans of PvP battles will be pleased to see new maps created and adapted specifically for this game mode.

Story

Three thousand years have passed since the first colonists left Earth. Now the galaxy is divided between the militant star empires and independent mercenary groups. In a remote corner of the galaxy — Sector 1337, the area of the dead — a world has been left behind. Here, the ruins of a great civilization of Aliens have recently been discovered. Huge factories and sprawling cities are falling into decay. Fragments of ships lie on the fields where massive battles were once fought. But there is not a living soul. Everything has been destroyed by a mysterious Cataclysm — a pulsing anomaly that burned out all life within this sector.

This doesn’t stop mankind, the new «owner» of the Universe. Mercenaries and adventurers have flocked to the sector to sift through the ruins and loot its abandoned artifacts, without consideration of the danger. Many have disappeared — including members of well-armed expeditions — but those who have managed to return have uncovered unprecedented riches. So looters continue to come here, to find the Aliens’ lost treasures — and to fight for them.

PC specs are as follows : -

AMD FX-6100 @ 3.3Ghz (never oc'd) Seidon 120V CPU liquid cooled.
GTX970 ACX 2.0 due to the memory limitations of the GTX 570Ti which didnt eally have a lot at all.
16Gb Strontium 1333Ghz ram
850 watt Corair HX850i PSU
Samsung 500Gb 850 evo SSD
& a 2TB HHD Seagate.

Have downloaded and reinstalled Star Conflict about 5 times now. it won't allow me to create a desktop launch icon, it says something along the lines of "Desktop icon already exists.) But clearly there is nothing on my desktop to lauch it.
I try to launch the game from steam, the steam launch icon for the game lauchin gcomes up momentarily but dissappears shortly after, so I bring up teh task manager and it shows the game is running but it isn't because there is no memroy being used and theres no processing going on in task manager even though it shows it in Task manager. So I have checked the game integrity, but hasnt helped at all. I'm at my wits end. I play all other games with no problems at the moment, games I play include Dota2, CoD Bops2, Battlefield 3 and Ark and Dead Space 2 and a bunch of other titles. Recently updgraded to the GTX 970 OCX 2.0, has the latest driver updates, freshly installed.

Any ideas would be much appreciated. Tried a few things that are floating around on Youtube and google but have hit a wall. Please help.

Boring as hell.

Basically you fly around in a space ship in arena type maps and shoot everything that moves. Then you use currencies you get from that to upgrade your ship, then you fight more. Get's kind of mindless and boring after just a few minutes. There is also a strong cash-shop incentive, so if you loose, the enemy probably just inserted more money.

Unless you totally love stupid space combat, you better spent your time somewhere else.

Good game as long as you do not mind a long grind. The gameplay and selection of ships is great. Worked great on linux, until march of 2016. Now it wont even run and there is no easy fix as of yet. This is also not the first time I have had problems with this game With that being said i cannot recomend that money be spent on a game that you may not be able to play the next time you go to log in. The support from the devs is my biggest issue it may be six months more befor they address the issue seriously. If they ever get their ducks in a row and handle their programing issues better i may return. But for now i cannot recomend. This is one of the only game on linux I have a problem with all others work flawlessly wether it's on steam, POL, or wine.

Pro: Great graphics and fun to play for awhile.
Con: Aside from grinding for new ships/gear, not much to do. Open space only has so many areas and they are all more or less the same, pvp/pve is fun but gets old after awhile. Allot of grinding for new ships/gear.
Summary: Fun to play for awhile, but after you "get the gear you're going for," it gets boring, i wouldn't pay for this game.

AS OF 0700 6/22/2016 I HAVE BEEN BANNED FROM THE STEAM STAR CONFLICT FORUMS FOR POSTING AND REFUSING TO REMOVE THIS REVIEW.

The Developers are censoring the Steam Forums and the Star Conflict Forums.

This will be a long read so if you don't want the details then here's a TL;DR: The Dev's censor the forums, inflate their player numbers, lie and there are game breaking bugs that cause you to lose items purchased with real money. If you speak out publicly, they ban you.

Below are my experiences.

I'm a space game fanatic. As of writing this I have 19,205 hours in EVE Online. That's right. nineteen THOUSAND. I've played since 2003. Across the multiple accounts that I made to play Star Conflict (I was banned for posting about the vanishing item bug. (It was a positive post asking for help) I've racked up about 4000 hours. Probably just under 4000.

At first the game was great! The prices for premium ship packs were crazy, but you don't need premium ships to enjoy the game. I enjoyed the game greatly.

Then came destroyers. Destroyers completely broke the balance of power in the game.

Eventually, they lost enough of their playerbase that they recognized that action was needed. They made it "easier" to obtain a destroyer. They made the rarest and most time consuming of destroyer parts drop in PVE/PVE matches. (It used to be open world only) However, they also increased the number of the materials that you needed exponentially.

At this time several players started running numbers on both the information that the devs gave us and the drop rates of the items. Several people including myself ran these numbers. Out of 100 games, I got 5 of the "Ore". It takes 10 to create 1 "Plate". You need 16 plates to build one "Structure" and you need 2 "Structures" to build a destroyer(Minus the multitude of other parts required.) So, let's look at the math:

10 X 16 X 2 = 320 "Ore"

If each game is about 15 minutes long (This is the average) and 100 games were played to get this data (I was premium so I even had a higher drop rate than a free to play player) then That means

15 Minutes X 100 Games = 1500 Minutes ÷ 60 (60 minutes in an hour) = 25 Hours

This means that to obtain less than half of a "Plate" you have to play for 25 hours (WITH PREMIUM)

So, let's finish our little bit of math here.

25 X 2 = 50 Hours for 1 "Plates"
50 X 16 = 800 Hours for 16 "Plates"
800 ÷ 24 = 33.3 (Repeating) Days
33.3 X 2 = 66.6 Days

That's means that in order to get 2 Structures you have to play every second of every day (WITH PREMIUM) for two months in order to complete 1 of 6 parts that you need to build a destroyer. This is FAR different than the '50 a day" drop rates one of the developers stated.

Oh no, it gets better!

When these numbers were posted, anyone who posted them was either banned or had their post removed. My posts were removed and I received a 7 day ban from the game.

After 3 months I broke down and spent 200.00 USD ontop of the money I was already forking over for PREMIUM to buy their "lockboxes".
Finally having enough materials, I began to build my Destroyer. Only to have the game kick me to the title screen when pressing the "Build destroyer" button. Logging back in, I went to repeat the process only to find my materials were gone. Going to my ship tree to look at my shiny new destroyer only increased my dismay as there was no destroyer.

That's right. It took my materials that I had purchased with real money and had slowly grinded over 3 months and gave me no destroyer.

>So, I filed a ticket.
The ticket went unanswered for 2 weeks.

>So, I posted on the Steam forums.
The dev team deleted my post.

>So, I posted on the Star Conflict forums.
The dev team deleted my post and banned me.

>So, I posted on the Russian forums (The dev team is Russian)
The dev team deleted my post and banned me.

So, I logged in just to make sure I didn't miss something or my destroyer wasn't sent to me in the in game mail.

Nothing. Well, I charged back my money and was thus, banned. After all, why would I allow them to keep my money when they failed to deliver the product?

This game used to have it all. The best (and only) F2P game that I actually played long-term. A self-proclaimed critic of the entire F2P model (and no great fan of multiplayer interaction), this game managed to pull me in. It was gorgeous, controls were intuitive and responsive, ships felt and looked great, phenomenal weapon and component selection. I could tinker with my ship for hours! I always thought that if this had been made into a single-player campaign game, it would've topped them all.

...and then they got greedy. The shift wasn't even terribly subtle. They annihilated the balance, and the only fix was to pay more. I kept thinking that they'd release a patch to fix it - of course, it never came. In the end, they proved my every concern to be true. They just took a bit longer than usual to reach the inevitable point of screwing up a Good Thing™.

What a waste.

This was an excellent game a year or so ago but now is nonsense. Not only is it a shameless cash grab but I have had missions where you get free stuff - for instance beryllium - reset themselves to zero as I got close to completing them. B0ll0x to that and b0ll0x to their shameless cash grab.

I am not even joking about the missions resetting themselves as you approach completion.

I started to play this in March 2013, was involved in 3 years of community & corporation building and loved it. Met many awesome people and perspectives and was totally hooked. I respected the devs for making their vision a reality and not give in to peoples demands of bigger ships, more auto aim weaponry and the overall dominance of skilled - play in this game made this game so much more challenging than a lot of other titles. If you played well you won, if you played ♥♥♥♥ you lose. There was always issues but the core gameplay was (mostly) fine and fluent. Unfortunatly the first cornerstone was Open space. With that, the whole mission bs started, Missions that contained 0 fun, 0 gameplay, 0 surprise, just grind, in its purest form. And they are still like that. it took them half a year to start ajusting the insane restrictions and they are still there.
I will not list the issues in chronological order because i cant remember what happened when exactly.
- Removal of squads, thats right, you cannot play with your friends, nor train your corpmates.
- introduction of destroyers and "live" balancing that will go for antoher half a year.
- removal of social features. You cannot see what your friends are doing, at all.
- Promotion of sit and tank gameplay and the systematic nerfing of skill & endurance played classes. (limiting of firing arc, wich isnt that bad, but the implementation is) Todays interceptor of choice is the ECM. No skill in that.
- Leagues, the "new" supplement for squadplay. It's the old sector conquest relived with a new name and a very narrow timeframe of playability. I could only play 1 hour of leagues per day if i wanted to. Plus further restrictions, like your team has to be set befor the timer starts and the fact that training less experienced players there, is futile and just a slap in the face for any pilots motivation. Nothing bad with losing, but very frustrating when you have no opportunities to train.
- The ultimate "mood killer" for me as Vp of a corp was the fact that our communitiy that has a very intimate nature of communication and relies on friendships and not so much on other things to work, was that the devs actively tried to disrupt this with limiting information and keeping the flow of playing together disrupted. I feel that they don't deserve a recruiting corp like us that literally ripped their asses out at times to keep things going.
- They failed to thoroughly remove items from older players for years, giving them advantages at times and when they introduced destroyers they turned the tide. Suddenly new players could simply obtain the parts by leveling up, whereas older generations of players like me still dont have destros. Because we have to grind this ♥♥♥♥, no thank you. ( ispent all gs i got since then on this ♥♥♥♥, jsut to see if i could eventually reach it but nono)

There is more, but nobody cares.
These devs inferiority complex will kill the game. They are a niche game with a great competitive potential but they dumped it. Or is it their publisher? nobody cares, sc numbers go down until the next big feature and then it will happen again and again until the pond is empty.

I cannot recommend this game to anyone anymore. Exept maybe, you are russian and you really really want to play with other russians.

Have i mentioned grind? :D Just look for yourself!

This game used to be good . . . but :

Since beta they added 2 'normal' ships and tons of Premium or lifetime grind ships . . . .
Balance is non-existent . . . . . .
AI is overpowered . . . . .
Waiting times are . . . . . well, 10 times longer then the 'average' waiting time (at least 5 minutes for PvP)
The fact that you can´t even leave the battle because you lose profit is disgusting
The open space mode is kinda bullsh*t because higher level areas are PvP only . . . . (these are the areas where most of the good loot and quests are)

Summary
Pay 400€ to be somebody . . . . . . or spend 5 years to be equal to a 7 years old kid who paid . . . . .

Gaijin ♥♥♥♥ed up War Thunder, now they are about to ♥♥♥♥ up Star Conflict
(yes I know that it is not the same development team)

Do not waste your time by downloading this . . . . . . now

I'm out . . . .

Used to be a great game.

Sure, it had laggy servers for australians, and anybody oceanic couldnt play anything smaller than a gunship, but it was a good game.
But nowadays, nobody is left to play with. game balance is poor. this game has all but died.

The game is very fun, i did enjoyed playing it alot.
The last path was a huge fail from my POV with cheap fraud to get all the players GS.
Many of the player lost their GS and tried to complain about this but the game support didnt even tried to understand the problem and send very cold replies.

Its a shame that such game with this potential can be a total failure.

this game is dead. look at how many are on right now via the community hub page.

once this was a great game full of players but now the russian devs have pushed their bias just like war thunder.

pros:
decent graphics
lots of ships
sort of open world
pve and pvp matches with new AI matches
physics

cons:
almost no one plays anymore
those that do are all russian
horrible grind
destroyers are a money pit (hundreds need to be spent for the tier 11 ones)
servers are 50/50 on stability
all new content is a money grab
all ecm and interceptors are OP (the devs have stated they are and wont do anything)

This used to be a great game, then updates after updates after it went into the destroyer age the game started to suck more and more. Game became unplayable the fun was over. How to ruin a game to the worst.
Old annoying bug like the auto-afterburner automatically enabled and reenabled randomly despite user preferences never got fixed.
A classical case when dev don't listen to the users that invested YEARS playing it and don't look at the stats and understand why people don't play it anymore.
When a game it's based on balanced skill and equipment the algorithm that choose who to put in your team it's the most important piece of code that never got fixed and unbalancing factor just became worst with the destroyer introduction. what a pitty!

Visually pretty spectacular game got me in.

BUT a confusing interface thats not for the casual gamer unless you like reading lots of stats..basically information overload just to select a ship.

PVE is sort of fun, but PVP expect to get spanked unless you have high tier craft, paid money and have played a lot.
There was only a couple of players on and after looking at the specs of the craft that killed me (many many times...lol). Yeah not noob friendly tier matching at all... (steam community confirms this sadly)

So yeah don't bother.. there are other games that are easier to pick up and more probably more fun.
