The timer has run out and Outfit+ won the version.
Although, due to their gameplay they did not win the version according to the admins.
Family vouchers for Outfit have been canceled.
Ouch.


I call upon Outfit top for a statement.

Admins:
Update: The HoF awards for Family (Vouchers and Don) have been cancelled upon admin decision and confirmation of anti-game pattern (There were more allies than possible enemies thru the round).

My thoughs of the version. Ever since 3 years we seen family pacting whit more then 70% of the family's. These big pacts have huge impact on the gameplay. Preventing newer players to join and even to start a family because they get shot away instantly.

The pacts forcing to end the version as soon as possible and this caused 2 weeks versions. This resulted in newer players leaving the game because before they could start whit serious ranking the version already closed. This also forced other fams to stop playing.

Last but not least the powercentralication from the top of some familys causing there to be one big pact. New familys get shot instantly making the old familys last standing and resulting in no new familys made. This also result in newer players leaving the game because they dont even can start a family.

All this is caused by 8 players who are active on IRC. and keep starting fams under different names but are the same people whit the same rankers. E.G. The the top of horde, latinante etc.

This caused 2 weeek versions and drived all newer players away.

The only solution to this problem it to get rid of bullet factories in the game. Gambling objects are bringing in enough money in the game and whit bullet factories these fams have absolute power in the game.

So these familys have UNLIMITED bullets comming in and that results in the version ending so fast.

Whitout bulletfactorys the game would be more fair and more competetive towards other players and newer familys

#removebulletfactorys
your post made very good sense until u started talking about BF. BF gets you 28.8k daily.................... hardly noticeable in the grand schemes of things.




30k per day x 4 sister fams is 120k per day is 840k bullets per week.
This is enough to end the version. not to mention the money comming in from objects

They always bought DCs or placed a bid at a reasonable amount for as long as I can remember.
Back to an unpopular opinion, problem is people make accounts for next to nothing with no ambition and allow thenselves to be absorbed into pacts. New players? Lol who exactly? When I was new I wanted to make my own family why would joining a pact ever benefit me? Thats the problem, go ahead and merge all the servers the mentality wont go away. There is still a handful of old crews allowing to be apart of the pacting problem they are just gay plain and simple.
Im moving in the direction Krays is in, and thats not showing up next round. Its good to see admins still care about this game and Im not considering the money they generate from DCs. This will motivate radical changes, and let’s be real... If you really care about Omerta and not here just to stalk other users then you probably tried out other mafia mmorpgs. The fate of them is the same as it is here to this point, they die off because they evolve into two sided predictable boring matches or just one side.
It’s amazing this game is still around and I tip my hat to the people who still make it competitive and want to stack skulls without pacting. Everyone else, no respect.

it is not.

it has been tested by some of my guys.
also envelop had 6 million bullets.
i know this game has many turks, but still ...

Replying from phone, but had to reply. Obay bot doesn't exist for a really long time... In fact, we have the opposite bot that puts DCs on Obay but I assure you 100% that we don't buy DCs on Obay (that's actually the reason why we wanted to avoid chat sales. To try and keep dupe farmers under more control - for example, we now disable DCs that are bought from this accounts where before we couldn't).

About small versions merge, I've explained several times since I was a small version player in past, there is a group of casual players that do not enjoy playing bigger versions. There are tens of families that actually want to play and try to win on their ownrather than help a big family/pact win and that's only possible on regional versions. We closed a lot of them in last years (Germany, France, and couple more). The 4 other servers have few impact on COM since some of the active players end up playing both regional and COM.

Thanks for feedback, anyone that is interested in what's coming can read the balance patch #2 on DM.

your post made very good sense until u started talking about BF. BF gets you 28.8k daily.................... hardly noticeable in the grand schemes of things.

1) stop DC sell on obay
2) admins can sell DC on obay for the people who cant afford it irl (maybe, not needed imo)
3) merge all versions into .COM until # of players warrants separate versions. (u can keep dm for testing)
4) stop BUYING dc from obay with your obay bot to manipulate the ing economy. admins buying envelop's dc is the only reason he managed to get this rich/strong. ofcourse with the current version, it was funy af to see outfit noobs fail on him, but in general it breaks gameplay imo.
5) remove named/level bg's. it is IMPOSSIBLE to organize a counter. attacking fam can be 50% of the size of their targets and still have near guaranteed win if their top accs +- match each other and there is no plating active.
the fact defending is this hard has been a good thing for my family, because it gave us an edge attacking, and if we got shot we would get fucked no matter the named bg's or not.
named bg's mean you are ridiculously slow to organize a counter and can even hardly do it because you need to be online to retrain for it to have any kind of effect. --> the solution to this problem is take many bloods that can counter for u so u can come online to retrain and actually make shots worths shooting.

point 1) and 5) are the most important imo.

+ other changes admins are doing ofcourse.


And what about the pokerspots?
Merge will be a stupid thing to do imo since most of those small version players will just retire..
dont care about pokerspots. feel free to shoot for them if you wish.
removing DC sales takes a lot of money out of the game (remember, admins automatically buy DC's on obay at a fixed price - you can buy 5000 DC and are 100% sure all of them will get sold.)

i'm ashamed to say i only just found out about the dc buying bot from admins. and i am not playing until that gets removed.
could live with dc buying if real accs were the only ones buying them. but this.. no

edit: so gl all, krays will be gone for the foreseeable future \o

I heard that the bot was disabled/removed after the ‘buy now’ option was added, but not sure if that is true.
To me it seems like most DC’s are bought by farming turks tbh.

I don’t think that BF’s are the problem, the pokerspots are a way bigger problem. Specially the Detroit ones.

Just remove HOF. People became really full of aids, brainless and idiotic because of it. No HOF means no retards paying their montly salary to "earn" their way. No more pussypacting and asslicking just to be part of the winning side. There is a family system with a timer. Use it in the way it's meant to be. Oh.. I forgot, you need a proper amount of players for that.

HOF has been changed, this was the last version with current HOF.

Why? I like HOF, “Hall of Faggotry”

It is good you do try to make Omerta better. As It seems from here, admins act like governments in the game. BUT, do you guys not think that you should get players opinions to make the best changes ?
It looks like that "I did and you should live with it" approach.
I still think that other versions like nl pt tr bla bla should be closed and combine with com.
Omerta faces with serious problems because of lack of player base. Would you please concentrate on more serious problems ?

The lack of playerbase is because noone wants to play in the current meta where pacts cover 70% of the game. They are fixing that. And they have been asking for plenty of input. I get that it's inconvenient now to have the extreme faggotry that was this version punished, but you can indeed deal with it. Next version is already ramping up to be the same with the last few opposing families not even willing to play because the insane shithousery that winterhill is in to.

Stop people from pacting and you bring back part of the fun and the players.

Well punishing the mass pacts the duty of admins or the duty of their opponents ? Not giving them hof is a way but they will be still remained as they killed you at the end of the day.
So they will always be pacts whether you like or not. The only way to make Omerta better is bring other versions into .com. Admins would only change the game dynamics with that move. Because I do not think any of those families you mention care with hof It looks like they got plenty of it.

Omerta needs more radical changes!

More changes are coming, it's good to see the first steps taken.

HOF has been changed, this was the last version with current HOF.

Why? I like HOF, “Hall of Faggotry”

It is good you do try to make Omerta better. As It seems from here, admins act like governments in the game. BUT, do you guys not think that you should get players opinions to make the best changes ?
It looks like that "I did and you should live with it" approach.
I still think that other versions like nl pt tr bla bla should be closed and combine with com.
Omerta faces with serious problems because of lack of player base. Would you please concentrate on more serious problems ?

The lack of playerbase is because noone wants to play in the current meta where pacts cover 70% of the game. They are fixing that. And they have been asking for plenty of input. I get that it's inconvenient now to have the extreme faggotry that was this version punished, but you can indeed deal with it. Next version is already ramping up to be the same with the last few opposing families not even willing to play because the insane shithousery that winterhill is in to.

Stop people from pacting and you bring back part of the fun and the players.

Well punishing the mass pacts the duty of admins or the duty of their opponents ? Not giving them hof is a way but they will be still remained as they killed you at the end of the day.
So they will always be pacts whether you like or not. The only way to make Omerta better is bring other versions into .com. Admins would only change the game dynamics with that move. Because I do not think any of those families you mention care with hof It looks like they got plenty of it.

Omerta needs more radical changes!
