Zombie Universe
« on: July 10, 2011, 02:12:08 PM »
Has there been any statement by BFG as to why so many inactives are not being deleted long after they have reached the age where they used to go poof?  Is this a policy change by BFG made in order to puff up the player numbers?

My opinion its one of two things.

Either something is messed up with the settings after they made the Vacation mode can go inactive change. Thats when it seems like it started

OR.

They did it to allow people to build up after compression. I honestly dont see any harm in it right now. I have a bunch of friends that were in d mode that have actually ventured out because of the amount of res they can get from inactives right now. If it encourages people to start getting involved in the game its a good change for now.

I would like to see the one atlas inactives that never built anything go poof though.

Also.. this isnt just SFCO. X2 also has seen no inactive rolloffs.. so im assuming its all unis.

sshhh, they may have forgotten to push the delete button.lol

But my assumption is that they won't delete expired inactives since very few new players coming. We might run out of farms if they do that.

Don't complain, I noticed this as well, but i won't send a ticket. This is just extra farming for longer periods.

I think they are intentionally leaving them b/c so many ppl have quit and the game is becoming somewhat bare. even with the compression there are still some large voids out there.

I just hope they keep them that way until ones are needed to be deleted for new players, if and when they come.

Get rid of them , I have no where to park my hep  lol  . There are so many blocked galaxies how the hell are we supposed to attack with heps. Spend 10 million hydro on each attack. I dont think so. A lot of players have unloaded there heps and put their attack fleets back on the warp gates.

They are spoiling the game , only farmers like them !!!  Keep to the rules BFG

It looks like the old inactives are starting to go poof.  The total membership has gone down from over 30,000 to under 28,000.
