  • Every toon is reset to Enforcer class for some reason, rollback?

    Hello,

    As you may be well aware every toon has been set to the default enforcer class for a reason that is unknown to me.

    For actives this might not be a big issue as they will just change back to preferred class, but i think it will have an impact for a lot of empires and the game as inactives won't change class.
    My empire uses a lot of higher level inactives for meat shields / token catchers and so do a lot of empires except for maybe legend tier cause they might only have actives.
    Now if these inactives had for example upgraded their titan passives but not the enforcer ones it will impact your empire in a negative way, or other way round for some maybe in a positive way.

    Anyhow in my opinion it will basically change the whole metagame, which i think is a pretty big issue.

    Assuming there's backups of this data, is there any chance there will be a rollback or that the database table that stores class selection (from a backup) is migrated to the one currently used to fix this?

    Migrating the data probably isn't as easy as it sounds but i don't think it's impossible.

    There were some server power problems yesterday and some glitches occurred. For that was the stamina refill and cc compensation.

    I would rather see the inactive meatshields out of empires completely. Or better, out of defense spots. EvE is about activity, not struggling to pass some toons that don’t play anymore.

      I agree with alexian 100 %
      Reward the active players and punish the meatshield.
      I would like to see lieutenants that kill non combatant player fast.

      Gold league empires are dead because they face empires with massive shields and meatshields and the opponent only has 5 actives and 70 meatshields.

        And if having inactives kicked out of empires or defensive spots in EvE was implemented as a feature because of community input or some other reasoning, i'd have peace with it.
        And you would know having inactives is an unviable option to play EvE. But as you say there were apparently power problems, this was a mistake rather than a decision.

        By implementing a feature like this you would essentially implement a rule on how the game is supposed to be played, without it i feel like you should be able to play however you like but having meatshields is a strategy nonetheless.

        In my opinion the game is based on strategy more than it is on luck.
        With all toons resetting to enforcer, empires get affected either positively or negatively based on pure luck.

        So i still think if there is a way to roll it back without significantly affecting other aspects of the game, it should at least be considered.

          There is no punishing inactives, they likely won't care. Only rewarding or punishing actives.

            Inactive players and empires should be removed after 1 year

              The whole point of having inactives as a meat shield is somewhat okay for me- also this has effected many empires positively - beacase we all know that enforcers come in war with x4 for health as compared to x3 for all other toons.

              again I had made this point many times that the tiers should have relegation leagues after end of season - Make the league for 1 month and after one month all the bottom of the table empires in the last tiers ( bronze league ) get religated and all the empire members are free agents. THis will automatically remove all the inactives and encourage actives to join active empires.
