Title: Stepping down and looking for new Soldat developers
Post by: Shoozza on June 02, 2018, 05:03:47 am
Hello Soldat players,

this is long overdue.

I'm stepping down from developing Soldat.

Soldat needs to move forward in a more rapid pace.
I got many chances but didn't deliver big improvements.

It is time for someone else to move the game forward.
If you think that is you, please contact MM (via forums private message).

Long live Soldat!

On one hand, I am sorry to see you go, because you are a really nice guy and I've had real nice time chatting with you past months.
On the other hand, Soldat needs this. You weren't able to make progress (due to legitimate reasons), and hence the torch shall be passed.

Long live Soldat indeed. And a sincere best of luck in whatever it is your do next!

I dont think so, mostly because Soldat is hold tight by bunch of old guys who treat it as their pet. You can probably expect another lazy development because anyone who left here and have skills dont play Soldat anymore/do other things, and people who wanted to help where forced by others to "get lost" because they dont like people who wanted to do some major changes in game.

For soldat I see only two chances:
1. MM will decide to focus on soldat and bring it to mainstream as THD main project.
2. Soldat need proper dev team, especially from "outside", because current team as show us for past 100 years is not capable to do ANYTHING with this game, they rather spend fighting each other over WM than move game to next level. Paid or not, Soldat need not only new players but also new development strategy and team. For now its some crappy weekend project for few blocks who have no idea what they doing. There is no clear and transparent schedule, no clear to-do, no public work/to-do list, no clear and public development discussion, No desire to use community help with smaller task like proper graphic and map work(instead of putting it all on one man shoulder like Monsteri).

Soldat have huge potential, it have everything what game need to be played, all what its need to reach new players is better look and GUI, some features like local/global stats and of course PROPER advertising.
If MM will start treating Soldat as product, like real game, nothing is stopping Soldat to be played again, even netcode and WM is not issue, because even AAA games have such problems.

Of course with current user members number and playerbase its obviously that its too late to do anything properly so we can just sit down and make a laugh from all this fail we encounter :]

I just want to thank you for the contributions you made to Soldat (starting from chatMod, to developing new versions). Too bad the developing process wasn't that smooth, which made our beloved and grateful community hate you most of the time...
GL&HF.

Good luck with your next projects man!

Well, MM you earned a lot on Soldat, don't you want to earn more? You just need to make v1.8, but make it well, not only for old players (cause they won't bring much money for you :P). Don't f*ck it up, now's (probably last) chance to save Soldat! :)

Shooozza, sorry but its TOO LATE you already destroyed soldat, why the **** you didnt end when we made that topic for MM where whole soldat community wanted you to do it

ofc thank you for all the work you did in the past (yea you used to be good dev one time) .. but its too bad that its you and only you who killed Soldat.

just dont develop any game anymore man, you will destroy it.

but still wish you the best in reallife for sure, I am like this only because I love Soldat as if it was my child.

but nice circus you and MM did there like "DONT WORRY GUYS ALL IS OKAY WE WILL SAVE SOLDAT STEAM RELEASE ETC INCOMING"

nah, that was just bulllshit you guys said to shut our mouths, you know that you already destroyed it.

good luck in reallife anyways Shoozzaa, bye.

I'd step in and join the team of developers, but I'm in the same boat. My time is so limited as it is, I'm lucky if I even play the game 1 hour a month. Still, I'd love to look at the source.

Please don't. We've already had one dev who had similiar amount of time he was willing to spent on Soldat.

Also if I'm to be honest I believe that you Shoozza owe us an apology and thorough explanation why on earth you haven't done that long ago if it's already "long overdue" and while there were still people willing to step in.

We're fully screwed. The only person who is able to save this game - MM doesn't care about his own game and won't share with us why it's "problematic child" for him and why he won't take it as his THD studio game. Even despite moving to discord and being able to somehow broadcast and advertise the game by ourselves we're left with this... It really saddens me to see the game I loved and bascially grew up with die like this - with it's creator pissing on it and on it's community. Also I believe that taking credit for this games still being alive is seriously wrong and all of your social media posts regarding Soldat as "your game" being alive and receiving updates is nothing more than a lie. Ever since you had given up the game to EnEsCE you hadn't have a real input in the game at all. You're taking credit for doing nothing and I'd even bet my money on it that you've made some money thanks to them working volountarly.

Shame on you MM for all the things you did (or I'd rather say you havent done).
Shame on you Shoozza for constantly lying to us about your involvement when all you were really doing was postponing the work and killing the game.
You guys deserve all the hate that is being thrown in your direction.

Nothing more to say. This will probably get deleted - shame  ::)

Dont worry, few well known white knights will show up soon and say to us that we are bad guys and Shoozza "didnt do nuffin bad".

Well small info for those white knights: Any normal person with brain would step down and left if he would see that he cant work on project like that, not sit in silence for half of year pretending to do something literally dragging down this game even more to the bottom. But its not only about Shoozza. If any other dev realize that he cant do anything useful to the project just quit and help finding replacement, because its really dick move to sit and do one-two things per month just to brag about being dev.
The same for MM, as it was said many time, you pissed on Soldat even if you still use it name as bragging card in every interview and your portfolio when as far I see and hear, you didnt really help this game at all to, your quote: "Put Soldat on Steam".

You all had literally YEARS to do that, spaghetti code is not excuse here, because in those YEARS you could fix it multiple times you could get help from other places than just this forum, even invest some money on it(if you can spend 150bucks on trailer content you could spend that to find proper team). Instead you spend resources on really average game like Butcher, when Soldat would get WAY better reception if you would just polish its look, UI and add some must-have multiplayer features.
But instead we had lazy development of few blocks that just fix some random bugs and add not that important things to it.
If you would just even implement simple auto-updater to game it would speed up work for past years because we would not need to wait months for release of stupid small things, people would not need to wait and manually install updates like it was some 1998 game. But even you F up such simple thing that medicore programmer could write...
So yeah, dont expect anyone to pat you on the back saying good work.

Hey developers.
From Latin America, i speak to you.
For years, I have been part of the administrative area of ​​the servers, teamspeak for soldat players, hosting and worrying about everything going well. So, I wish you the best of a player and anonymous administrator. I also wish you strength and unity more than anything else, because in the end the community was kept up not only by the people, who use the servers daily, but also by the administrators who always try to keep everything online.

The communities that I managed and uploaded servers for Chileans and Latin America.

- Ingaming.cl | Ingaming Chile
- rox.cl | Rox Community
- ciberinc.cl | Cyberinc Community
- rgz.cl | Radical Gaming Zone

- pionetworks.cl | PionetWorks Chile
- KscLive.cl | KSC Live Community

And other communities that over the years, I have forgotten, but always supporting the cause, always accompanying non-profit people. It is a beautiful experience of life and hopefully in the future, ideally contribute to keep growing Latin America, North America, Asia, Greenland, Africa, Europe and the whole world that participates, and continues to participate in the game.

Fraternal greetings from LinkcL, former administrator of Latin America.
Many forces for the future team of game developers, here in the region we are waiting for Soldat to come out for Steam.

Do not forget the tournaments, the flags scored, and the laughter that produced their victories or defeats.

having Helloer in the lead gives me a ton of hope

I just want to thank you for the contributions you made to Soldat (starting from chatMod, to developing new versions).

the irony in that the chatMod didn't work support newer versions and it never made it as an actual feature

uuu... so edgy... Show me rule that say that posting opinion is prohibited, especially when I just comment what YOU doing. Also compared to others I actually did few things for players, not much but more than most of you that just lament about me :] I like to keep balance of that :]
Because get real a bit and look around, its impossible to say something positive when we get all that hilarious SOUP opera(I write soup because I know that it annoy one of user :] Because yes, I often visit discord and you dont have slightly idea what nick I have :D )


But to burst your bubble I can say that I am positive about helloer dev.
You would know that if you would ACTUALLY read what I post, not just pick one sentence and cry about it. Most what I write are literally suggestions that everyone want but few of you are too biased and treat soldat as private playground, and you rather spend time on discord talking crap about others just because you personally dont like something.
Truth hurts most, especially when someone else tell you about it.
