Well, as expected, it will be impossible for a mortal to read all of the posts made in this thread. Can we have a summary post every 50 pages or so? 1000 posts in 12 hours is crazy and most of us can't even play yet. I am fine with waiting until it is released worldwide.

takes 15 power cells to recharge, and you only get 3 games per full charge. then sometimes you lag out and get cheated :mad:

Tavoss
10-31-2009, 12:06 PM
yes, understood. But 3 games? its a little ridiculous, and then, the 45 cells cost 1.99 , which gets you what... 12 matches? thats a little steep. I'm not a cheap person, indeed I spend way to much on apps, and Eliminate is DEF the best MP game I've played on the iPhone, but I wont be supporting its current energy consumption. if say, that 1.99 got me enough games to last me a week, and not a day, i would. I used my energy last night, then got up this morning, and I didnt even have a full charge... only 2/3rds... wtf.

Nevertheless, this is a quality game that I'm enjoying playing very much, even when i run out of energy and am not leveling up. but like i said, i wont be buying energy packs with their current rate of consumption!

idk thats what i thought too, since it MAKES SENSE. 2 of my matches i was in, there was 1 guy who could shoot me once and i would die, i stood there unloading clips on him [and hitting him] and he didnt die. then, in another match, i basically wasted my energy because both of the ppl could just hit me ONCE. and i died. like i said the current combat system is shit and im not pleased that it does nothing but waste my energy.

Beloved
10-31-2009, 12:17 PM
Does anyone else have the problem where information on items and upgrades simply says: "Value not found"?

Btw I find it sad that energy takes over 4 hours to charge and that it isnt even charged to full. Also seeing you can only play 9 games of 3 minutes each for 2$ seems an extremely heft price, one i wont be willing to pay by any means...

but what really has disappointed me is the fact that recharges dont continue silently, what i mean by this is that once you get the 1/3rd recharge, you have to enter the game before the countdown for the 2nd recharge starts.

deiden26
10-31-2009, 12:20 PM
I think you all are way too concerned about energy.

Energy helps you get new items, that is pretty much it. It doesn't make killing people or winning matches less fun. Just think about most online fps and tps. They don't have this rpg element, yet you still play them without the incentive of getting new gear. I have played plenty of unenergized games, and it was fine. I had a lot of fun, and I was motivated to keep my global rankings up. Also, while your playing unenergized games, your time until next recharge continues to tick down to zero. There is no reason NOT to play unenergized games :p

change to Canadian store > search Elim > dl it > create new acc > use new email > for the credit card choose no payment [its free] > put all fake info [the only legit info u need is a zip code that corresponds with whatever Canadian city u put] > and thats bout it i think

Simple. Log out of your current account. At the bottom of main itunes page click the flag icon, and select the canadian store. Select a free app (eliminate would do) and get it. It will ask for an account, so create a new 1. When it asks about billing there should be a option of none. Select this then enter an address (I just searched for mcdonalds in toronto using google). That should be about it.

Guys, please remember that this is just a limited Canadian release and that energy recharge WILL BE EVERY 90 MINUTES once globally available. they're just testing the system out.

If you don't like the energy/upgrade system then this game is not for you. Maybe wait for NOVA...

i had 30 cells when i started , so i was able to recharge my energy to full twice. so essentially i played through 3 full charges. was it like that for everyone? any updates on the pricing?

Alan:
Yeah, i recieved 30 power cells as well. I still have 15 just in case im close to leveling up or something (my recharge timer says 224 minutes!! I thought it was 90...?)

I was planning to buy power cells once i get an itunes card. The pricings are like this. (in context)

Pack of 45 Power Cells: $1.99
Case of 280 Power Cells: $9.99
Crate of 975 Power Cells: $29.99

I dont think anyone will buy $30 worth of power cells in just one pop. I might buy a pack or two every other week or something, but i dont know yet. I made a canadian account just for this game so, i cant buy anything yet xD

I think 15 cells= 3 matches. So 5 cells= 1 match. 60 cells= 12 matches. 45= 9 matches

$2 to play 9 matches? Seems a bit steep. I'm just getting into this thread and it seems like a lot of people like it, but wow.

Wow, by far the dumbest comment I ever seen. What kind of English do you think we speak? Are you serious?

Canadian menu:

Ok, good (well, it sucks, but..) at least im not the only one with this. Though what kinda got me down was i was expecting to have a recharge by this morning: i played it last night, had like 210 minutes, went to sleep, thought it would recharge...right? No. It still has 200 minutes left. So you have to keep playing to have the timer go down. Or at least for me. Now i keep my ipod plugged and do other things while i wait 200 minutes.

You are aware that you can continue playing for free all day if you want, right? The only thing energy affects is your character advancement. Otherwise you can play online or against friends in push alert matches all day long.

It's not like energy is something you have to buy often, or at all.

I have beaten Terrorist a couple of times yesterday (today was impossible xD) also i killed kdaddy (the one with the vaporizer) like 3-4 times in a match today been lvl 5 and he lvl 11+, although they always win the match xD leaving me in 2-3rd place T_T...

I just love this game and I have been waiting a long time for the release… It's amazing, although I have some complaints:

-I think the charge time + recharge fee is way unfair, only around 3 matches (you don't loose energy when you join a game) for full charge and 2 bucks for around 9 matches? for like 3 mins each that is less than 30 mins of charged play that is 54 minutes of play for 4 bucks and 1 hour 21 minutes of play for 6 bucks... making that the same fee the must online games charge for a MONTHLY fee.... just unfair! way too expensive I've seen way better games with way lot more weapons, equips and fun for less money...

-Recharging time It's just too high (240 mins) I hope they fix this… cause only 3 plays (10 mins) and then you have to wait 240 mins or buy recharge.

-I bought some equipment thinking would be useful, I was wrong and i don't use it, would be cool if i could sell those equipment for some credits.

-Don't know if i'm the only one have this bug, but some menu tittles don't display correctly, I mean instead of displaying "Play" it displays "Pla", or "Worl" instead of "World", etc.

-The matches are great!, but is a bit hard to kill those high lvl chars, example I've been playing, (I'm just lvl 5) sometimes high lvl chars (talking about lvl 10+) appear and kill me easly like 1-3 shots and I'm on the floor crying like a baby, so would be very cool if the matches are gathered from players of the same or aprox. lvls cause sometimes is unfair someone is killing everyone in the map.

I'm not dissapointed, I'm playing and playing, it's a very cool game, easly the best game from appstore I just pointed some stuff that was bothering me .
Happy playing! my ID is fi2shift add me!

yes, but I think they could have still made it that you can have 6 matches with money & point gain per recharge!

I wish there were more stats after a match, you know like how many kills of each opponent you got, how many deaths etc.

Also whoever can't get a game, I've found it can take like a minute or so un-energized, but it can do that in the background. Go looking around the menus, check out the armours and stuff, then when it finds a match it'll take you right there.

As soon as it comes out globally the recharge time will be reduced to 90 minutes. Also since you don't waste energy if you join a game already in session, there will be a better chance of finding a game already in session once it goes global, therefore using less energy.

I see that a lot of things people were worried about is happening, except lag (BTW, great job NGmoco on no lag, if it stays this way when the rest of the world opens up, you guys are officially amazing). 10 minutes of game play then buy an energy pack that fills up a third of your bar for $0.99?

$2 to play 9 matches? Seems a bit steep. I'm just getting into this thread and it seems like a lot of people like it, but wow.

I'd like to clarify: $2.00 to earn credits in 9 matches without waiting for recharge.

You can play the game as much as you want, whenever you want. You just don't earn credits without energy.

Guys, for the sake of new people trying to read this thread, can you please start using this lingo? I'm concerned that you are conveying that power cells and energy are like tickets to play the game, and that's just not true.

Allen, could you please clarify a question of mine regarding "being energized"? It seems that when I'm not "energized" my kills, and skill continue to increase on the leaderboards. However, my wins only register if I am "energized". Is this an intentional feature, or a pseudo-glitch?

P.S. I am in love with Eliminate, this is not a qualm, just a question.

excellent gameplay, but network is laggy at times. and the pricing just seems to be a tad bit too much, but im willing to pay

+1 for the lag, I hope this is sorted out after the canadian testing is over.

I'm on Comcast Extreme 50mbps tier and should not lag on an iPhone game.

As for energy recharge timer, I have no statement except that 1) we're in canada and therefore tweaking lots of things. 2) this is a free game, so we want to make sure paying players feel like what they're buying is really valuable.

Everyone's feedback is always appreciated, but just to warn you, "i want the timer to be shorter so I can earn more creditz for freez" is probably going to fall on deaf ears. :)

Correct, it won't. The game dynamically scales depending on iDevices and we try to maximize all the different hardware. Obviously, our major concern is a solid 30 fps, and we scaled up or down based on that benchmark.

1st gen iphone - probably barely playable
1st gen touch - might be *ok*
3g phone - works pretty decently
2nd gen touch - should be smoother than 3g phone, but not as pretty as 3gs
3gs and 3rd gen touch - should be fairly similar, 3rd gen touch might be *slightly* faster.

Update:

2nd gen touch - verry playable, with occasional lag when in a 4 player game (probably becaus of the servers!)

Whilst I can see where you coming from in adding value for those who do purchase energy packs, the system as is seems a little unbalanced in favour of those who do. Even if the only tweak you make is to fully recharge the energy after the same time period, it would allow free players to upgrade more easily, whilst not affecting the value for paying gamers.

Hope you can make the recharge timer so that after 240 minutes we get a FULL energy recharge. For me, I only get one bar of energy (worth one game) after 240 minutes. I slept for about 10 hours, and woke up with only two bars of energy... is this suggestion worth considering?

From our dev:

Deciding win / loss was incorrectly only being calculated if the player had energy. Terrific catch."

Sorry in advance if this has been asked already or discussed earlier but after reading almost 7000k posts in the old thread and leaving off on page 13 last night and waking up to it almost being at 123 pages i have not had the time to read all of this thread in its entirety.:rolleyes:

When you use up the power cell that recharge your energy bar twice, how long does it actually take for the power cell to fully recharge if it actually even does?

And what is the best way to actually utilize the energy bar? Is it install game, play 3 matches, select power cell recharge energy bar, play 3 more games, select power cell recharge energy bar play 3 more games and then just wait ? (for gaining credits that is. i am fully aware you can play w/out energy)

I am hoping that the Power cell will recharge allowing us to fully play 9 games total before having to actually wait a long time to gain credits.

No, besides the power cells allotted to you when you first fire up the game, additional power cells can only be obtained through purchase. The recharge will only fill up your bar.

Aaron, do you have a screenshot or something that we can use to confirm what you're talking about (on being level 50)?

From what we see, everything looks correct.

Also, can you elaborate on inconsistency of energy being spent? There are various cases where you will not use energy. I don't have a confirmed list, but it's basically cases where you don't get a full "game experience". Joining when the match is mostly over, ending up being the only player in the game, etc.

You do though, use energy if you quit out of a game. Nobody likes a quitter. :p

Seems if you join at the last few moments of a match, without getting opportunity to do anything; a very large amount of "skill" is lost. This should probably be removed to prevent people from losing skill by entering these nearly done matches.
