The “how do I know FAF” PDF


 

Forged Alliance and Forged Alliance Forever.

  • 22,71 % of the FAF players are playing FA for less than a year. They never knew GPGNET. 41% are playing since the release.
  • 77,47 % of the FAF players are using FAF for less than a year. 21,61 % are playing for more than that. FAF brought back all these players to FA.

Forged Alliance forever website, lobby and moderation.

  • The most requested feature is a Replay vault. This will be coming along Galactic War. More statistics are requested, they will come with the replay vault too 🙂
  • Most of you are seeking help in the chat. While this is great, remember that the wiki and the forums are the most reliable source of technical support.
  • More than 80% of the players think that the current moderation of IRC and forums is good/enough, and that the amount of moderators is correct.

Matchmaker/League system.

  • 22% thinks that the amount of map is correct. 10% think it’s too much, and 12% not enough. Other voters don’t play ladder. We will the current amount of map.
  • The ratio between custom and official maps is correct for 53% of the players. 17% think there are too many custom, 7.43% too many official. The actual ratio won’t be adapted.
  • You have rated the ease to find a ranked game 4 out of 5.
  • The matchmaker “balance” is rated 3.3 our of 5. The only improvement can only come from more players using it, or the search will be much longer.
  • The league system is rated 3.71 out of 5. We will try to find way to improve it (and make it more clear) in the future.
  • The reward system is rated  3.44 out of 5. We are thinking of implementing a website “player of the day/week/season” reward system, as well as other little things to make it better.

Patches and Balance.

  • You like the variety proposed by FAF. It was rated 4.35 out of 5.
  • Finding everything you want is important too. And we succeed with a rating of 4.1 out of 5.

Conclusions.

We are doing what we think is best for the game. We have made some drastic decisions in the past, sometimes ignoring a vocal minority, but it seems that he has been for the best.

There is some place for improvement here and there, but overall, you are pleased with the current state of FAF, and we will continue in the same direction for this year.

Thanks you for you support, and we are aiming at making our score better in all areas next year !
