“Just a thought.. What if every PvP match was Battle Royale? The edges of the map would burst into flames after X turns, and creep in 1 tile every few turns to force more aggressive play. Standing in the fire would deal significant damage. I could eliminate the AI take-over timer since you'd just die if you stalled.”
“Most players (99.9%) never spend any money at all... Not even $1. There's a lot of people who will never play Free-To-Play games just because they're typically bad. Also our reviews got bombed by Chinese and Russian bots who are marketing other games, which they can do because it's free to install. Making it paid will at least generate a little money, which is more than it makes now, even if only sells 1 or 2 copies a day. There might also be some Steam Marketplace things we can do, letting players buy and sell items on Steam, which gives developer a small cut.”
“I love Battle Royale style games and would be very inclined to create one for Dire. We had a meeting last night about HOD and Megaweapon has started working on the update. I don't want to make any promises, but we're going to attempt to fix the problems with PvP and add some new mechanics. I'll have more details as work happens. I'm going to start writing a daily blog about what's going on behind the scenes.”
“In the very near future we'll be working on updating HOD and likely converting it to a paid game with no micro-transactions. This project will be headed-up by Megaweapon, with some assist from Ozymandias. This change will not affect your access at all, so you have nothing to worry about in that regard. What we do need from you are lists of changes we can make to improve the game. This includes Quality of Life changes as well as balance changes. Priority needs to be given to existing game features, and not new features for the time being. Feel free to post your feedback and suggestions to this thread, or you can email us ([email protected]). In-game mail would be fine, too. Screenshots will be very helpful!”
