Just thought i might start a post seeing what people think would be the best ways to get TL back to an active community.

Like many things with the introduction of Java and such games it is hard to lure people into playing text based games but we must be able to get an active enough base to have 5 or more people playing at any one time??

Sooo people what are our bright ideas??

What rank are you currently at? We are discussing ways of balancing the monsters at the lower levels because that seems to be the place where we loose a lot of players. If you have any suggestions on the matter please submit them through the ticket system so that we may add them to our list.

Thanks.

I am currently Lieutenant Colonel, i have also noticed its costing me money to train rather than making money . . . dont know if this was planned or not.

Every time TL is touched, it gets worse. Please don't do AJAX or any of that crap, keep it simple. I was right about the reset not bringing more players, so please consider my opinion on this, this time around.:)

don't heal...that's what i did.higher levels it's possible to heal at times and have a few mil left,but most of the time the money you earn isn't enough for a full heal.(too many overmind power hits)

Yea i have to agree i like the old TL more at the moment, because im really getting tired of loosing my money and spending multiple lots of 5 minutes doing nothing.

How am i ment to train if i do not heal? And how is it people have 500mill plus if you can not make money from training?

Another Casino bug? hahaha that might get people playing again lol

A lot of people is playing TL. Just not when you're around. Because it is a secret. A uber secret.

When you get to commodore,you start getting lots of money ONLY if you just use up your health per run.Bank in the cash whenever your hp dips below 300k.any where below that a overmind powerhit can kill you.usually about 200+k damage ,once got killed with 250k hp left.There's no bug.Just by training alone i could get about 800+mil at about 90K kills even though i have donated 200 mils+ to various accounts(my other accounts of course).Once you reach deity it's 17k +credits per kill

Health should auto update as you go up in rank.

healing shouldnt cost so much.

Power hits need to get balanced.

Last rank should be much harder to reach.

New health on ranks is outragious, how is a lower rank suppose to beat you in MP?

+++++ LOTS OF OTHER STUFF.

I guess we just have to wait until they choose to fix it.

I just dont understand why it is taking so long . . . expecially when its in their best interest to do it and get the game to become active again.

hey i mailed tom and asked him to help reset both my rank and hyperlisk's rank back to scf.Now your friend can continue playing his scf ...unless he wants no rank again..haha.THANKS TOM! Just saw the change only today.Thanks for the 4 mil, I must say that 4 mil resulted in fewer deaths thn i should have at that rank.shady helped me by giving me 10 mil too.that no name rank is a curse,not an achievement though.:)

It really got so tedious and boring to buy hp at higher ranks.I resorted to autoclick.Hey,still managed to finish my lunch before I bought all the hp I needed.:P

I didn't think I would pass you either.beating the next closest on on the rankings kept me going.

Lets just get a buy all health button so you dont have to 'train' for health.

There's one suggeston that rules all. Revert back to the ORIGINAL TL. It was the best, and now, no matter how much they tinker and fiddle with the new one, it's never going to be anywhere near as good

Even if they bring back the orignial TL, it'll never be as popular as it once was, this is a dead game.

The reason the old TL was so much better was just because it had 40-60 people playing at one time.. If we had that kind of activity around here this TL would be 10x better.

TL's lack of activity is a LARGE influence on people not playing it. When I first started, there was clan wars like every other week, and it wasn't so simple to get onto the Top Marines.

Let's just acknowledge that some games are made to keep players playing for a long time, while others are just perfect for playing once in.. a couple of years? I think TL belongs to the latter, from a point of view of someone who used to play it regularly last time.

Basically because the game has relatively limited things one can do- other than clicking on 2-3 spots all the way?

Though it's hard to deny that doing so is fun once in a while, which is why 'oldies' keep poping in once in a blue moon.

My Suggestion?.... maybe you guys need a new mobs, a new weapon so rare , A QUEST? or any typical textbase addons , can we do that here? damn i missed this game soo much, but less people play on it :(
