I strongly disagree. In fact, I'll challenge that statement outright. The ideas that are currently being incorporated into Warzone are ones that have arisen from this very sub-forum. The new terrain renderer? Came from an idea someone had.
Balance changes? Again, came from here.
New Campaign? That's been an idea since 2000, in one form or another.
New models? Also in the works since 2001.
I urge you to remember that in an open-source project like this one, things can move slowly. It's simply a fact of business. If, per se, there were a paying benefactor who could take care of the monetary needs of the development team and website maintainers, things would move faster.
But your position that the ideas expressed to improve Warzone are a "pipe dream" or "bragging" -- that's rather offensive, considering that this game is free; and an insult to the people who develop and maintain the site.
show me the post where someone said that we need a new terrain renderer and then show me the developer response.
I bet you anything that the developers that did it didn't need someone to tell them what to do, and they had a plan.
you are also wrong and putting words into my mouth.
let me rephrase what I was getting at, I said that the developers don't act because they read some post in this forum section, they do it if they want to and what they want to do.
look at idea tracker, and look how many ideas were implemented. V xabj vg vf n uvtu ahzore sbe lbh gb pbhag gb, ohg V jvyy uryc. it is 0.
we got hundreds of ideas with more and more being done every day and without someone doing the dirty work this is just a waste of time to keep asking for ideas and suggestions.
they should call this a wishing well and require people to use paypal to ask for something and when the amount gets high enough then it gets done.
