I’ve been in Crossout now 5 solid years, put in around 1400 hours and put well over 1200$ into this game. I’m not looking for special treatment or anything. I give this information to only further the point I’m going to attempt to make in hopes that a sympathetic ear belonging to a dev may hear and understand the situation. Ultimately fixing the issue in some way or another.
Over the last year, I’ve watched hundreds of people enter my clan while I would continually boot them out for joining and simply stop playing the game. My punt rules were around 2 weeks of inactivity. Today, I have a more active group of people that tend to play together and tend to hop on daily. The point is, the turn around in this game is insanely high, it seems.
Last eve, me and ‘the guys’ tried out the clan war system for the first time. Understand that some of us are able to make builds that are around 10-13k PS. A good bit of the clan members that can also participate in the clan wars can hit the minimal and up to around 8k.
The requirements are Lvl 10 and 6k PS
However, as we noticed battle after battle, the PS we were up against were 15k easy. Weapons that we can’t even afford much less build. It was like body builders smashing beer cans with a hammer. We didn’t have one vehicle in the mix that was above a 7k PS. Not even saved in pregame.
Next match. Same. Next. Same. Next. Same.
So we’ve come to the conclusion that if there is a match maker, it’s broken or there simply aren’t enough people that have less than a 15k PS playing clan wars.
That’s one issue.
The other is the fact that you have to actually WIN a match to rank up. So if you’re at zero, which we are - being fresh to the war, fighting things more than twice our size in PS, using weapons we can’t build (for this reason), there isn’t the chance or possibility of any hope at all to actually win a match to get above zero, let alone 3 levels above just to even get a trickle of that ore which is required to build the weapons that are being used against you and so forth and so on…
It’s a catch 22 of a catch 22! lol
It’s already infuriating when you’re playing regular matches against opponents that are using those same weapons against you.
This is literally a pay to win situation. …and considering the price of those weapons, it’s a VERY expensive endeavor.
I’m not sure how you can keep players this way. I mean, other than those with a very expensive habit of dumping money in your laps buying everything in game. There is no level playing field this way.
I believe all of the players I’ve seen leave this game was because it’s so difficult to get anywhere. You have to grind for so long for so very little when you have a hard cap behind a pay wall to be able to compete with those that you have little choice in combating against.
It seems there are so many issues with the way this is set up.
So my question is… Aside from us giving you thousands of dollars just to be able to compete (each), why would you even bother allowing anything less than a 15k PS in clan wars? What would we do to get on that board? What do we do to be able to compete? Does it simply boil down to money?
