All you do is bitching.You got no knowledge and no help to soldat in terms of coding so shut up and let them do the work.They are not paid workers and will work if they got free time.He said developing time will be dissappointing already but all you can do is talking bullshit.You are not paying anything so dont expect him to report all daily works to you every day.They are just working just believe them and shut your mouth.MM said it will realease in steam and its hes priority those days.I cant even imagine how this topic can piss off Shoozza or MM even im not a developer and not the guy who spends days for this codes.You are being dumb and stop it right now.I recommend admins to remove this bullshit topic.You are judging like a boss or CEO of the company.What the hell are you thinking and who the hell are you to judge people while you are being nothing in this job.What is this ridiculous topic can you explain me seriously ?

So you believe anyone should get to kick the current dev leader, to take over the role and never put in any work what so ever, and completely detach from the community?
We had Falcon, who had his issues, but he's still better than Shoozza.

Have you even read what Coco has said? I think the community is mad because he (Shoozza) seemed to ignore or decline any actual HELP proposition. Why would he actually do that if he cared for this game? If he doesn't have enough time to even consider getting help how do you imagine his developing when game might get an anormous boost of activity and instead of 50 people whining he will have to deal with few hundreds??

Soldat is in big troube because certain people simply do not care about it's future.
By certain people, I mean one person in fact:


Michal Marcinkowski, Creator of Soldat, Head of "Transhuman" Design (Soldat's "Company' and Publisher)


-
Soldat has suffered from very poor management and marketing from the very beginning and we're now at a point, where the game we all enjoy so much and put so much work/love in.. is about to die / lose it's lost chance for a revive.

by the people to who have putten much work in Soldat,.. I mean our community and at no point our publisher, MM's company Transhuman Design..
I do know that THD covers the hosting costs for the lobby and for some servers and general maintenance work..

-
However, the one and only reason why Soldat is still alive and existing as an oline multiplayer game is our community.
The Soldat community has done it's best to keep it alive for that long by running highly competetive and active leagues (for almost 30 seasons now!), creating gather/matchmaking communites on IRC and Discord, provide server hosting, create content (maps, mods, scripts, etc.) doing the whole community management and so many other tasks,.. that I can't understand how the company which is actually in charge of the game's sucess, DOES NOTHING.

-
What Soldat needs is a replacement in the " project management "... Soldat doesn't even have anything compared to that... so it's highly needed to assign that task and to GET JOBS DONE.


-
There are so many tasks, which are EASY and FAST but they just keep getting delayed over and over again...

I've started a topic about remaking the official soldat website (http://soldat.pl) from scratch because it's just horribly outdated, not user friendly, filled with wrong data and bad content, bad download area, no proper SEO / marketing / layout.. and nothing happened since.
What usually happens when it comes to changes, is that they keep getting discussed maybe.. all the people in charge to get jobs done .. FAIL TO EXECUTE.
...
I've however talked to Shoozza and jrgp in that ceratain case and it seems possible to get that done and I'm sure we will find a great replacement in time!

However, what I want to say is that this isn't something that a community member like me should report and bring up to attention... This is MM's job as our publisher....!

-
He has to find obvious problems and make sure that they get changed as fast as possible with his best efforts.
Obviously MM / THD doesn't care about Soldat as it wasn't even represented on their official website http://thd.vg under their games list.
What kind of a publisher wouldn't put Soldat on their games list? I've adressed that issue and massive PR failure and the reasoning was "missing media/screenshots".. This must be the worst marketing, pr and common sense I could imagine from a publisher. After talking to Furai it was added..

but MM,
why don't you see those obvious problems !?
Is that the same person who's trying to sell game marketing advises and PR guides?..

Quote
I'M OPENING UP PRE-ORDERS FOR MY ONLINE VIDEO COURSE!
Alright,..
I'm sorry to say but from what we can see, you're not even close to have basic knowledge about anything related to game marketing.


-
Manpower is obviously limited.. we can't expect people to work full time on soldat related jobs.. but we have a large community and people have offered their help so often...
We need someone who assigns tasks.. no one says that Shoozza should take care of everything..
He is our lead dev and his role is to code... Basicially nothing else than coding..

-
As MM obviously has no interests to help with Soldat, we do need someone else who takes takes over Soldat' project lead / project management job.

Someone who builds teams to:
- update maps, redesign maps, fix maps
- interact with server hosts, leagues, gathers and sub-communities
- takes care of the marketing, seo, website and media
- event team to host tournaments, leagues, cups and other events
- assings "simple" non-code related tasks to the community, instead of Shoozza.. such as remaking the manuals, redoing Soldat's default settings, default controls, and other things.


Michal Marcinkowski, Creator of Soldat, Head of "Transhuman" Design (Soldat's "Company' and Publisher):

Please take care of Soldat as your "product" or give permission to someone else who cares about our game, Soldat.
Stop selling the efforts made by our communities as yours. We kept this game alive, you're putting obstacles in Soldat's way.

We had Falcon, who had his issues, but he's still better than Shoozza.
You guys are not capable to understand what i mean.Theres nothing Falcon did.Shoozzaa did more things than him.MM said he talked with Shoozzaa about steam realise and they will work on it.They are not your workers they are free independent coders.Theres nothing but bitching in this topic.No solution no responsibility.Just empty motivational speechs you make here.I could understand if Falcon or Helloer open this topic but Coco or you or me are not capable of anything about coding and improving soldat.Devoleper himself aka MM said its hes priority to make it to the steam so shut your mouth and wait you are promised for january but you forget you are giving nothing to this game.Stop talking like you donated 50k dollars to see it in the right time LOL you guys are so dumb beyond the limits.The funny part is you both are not even playing soldat like for months or years and still bitching LOL.I swear to god i could ban you all for this stupidity like you are the guy who can judge.Also happy dardar after lost rotten years he is in charge somehow and its hes playground so he can play with WM(He fucks him up like) and ban some people and act like he is something.How easy to say make it open code LOL then you all going to cry even if its open source there will be same unpaid coders are trying to code Soldat but then what you gonna do if they lose their attention to this game and spread out hacks ? How you know there is a 100% trusted coder that going to raise up the Soldat ? There is only one guy who can make this game better than ever and its Michal Marcinkowski.This topic should be like ''You are late where is the steam'' not like ''You are shit leave developer team make it open source for other coders'' LOL YOU ARE SO DUMB

uhhh, Ive been playing way longer then you have, nice try as usual. Of course you don't bother to have any sort of sources or citations. Usual Verbeia post. The fact that you said Shoozza has done more work than Falcon or Helloer goes to show you how little you know about Soldat development andddd you still make no sense. When did I ever say anything about making soldat open source?
Stick to playing, let the adults actually have a conversation.
Don't quote me til you have sources, not going to bother answering unless you do.
Also don't put words in my mouth, you clearly did not read my post.

Hello guys FINALLY the community woke up and people are speaking how it is, Michal Marcinkowski MUST know it ! Im really pissed, Im playing soldat 11 years too and I have to say that Soldat is for years on the same level of development - one lazy dev that doesnt care about our opinions.

When I see all these shitty 2d indie games on steam, that are 1000x worse than Soldat, and thousands of people are playing it everyday, Im asking what we did wrong..

Theres no any big improvements in eats,bugs,design,anticheat and other things.. imagine how great game we could have now if there was enough devs that really wanted to help Soldat and took suggestions from the community.

Coco and darDar has said everything straight, the biggest fault of Soldat is leading for years - MM and Shoozza, looks like MM dont give a shit about Soldat, Shoozza just ignore us, when Soldat should have been already on steam and acting like he doesnt care...Since Shoozza just cant rec more devs and work with them on new Soldat, he should resign.

We waited for years. You had 8 years to make these changes we wanted as community, We made a lot of good suggestion that could help Soldat and only you had power to do it. On this and SCTFL forums, people from community had really nice ideas, but have never been heard and processed from devs, so thats why is Soldat dying for years.

Its sad that MM is not aware of what masterpiece he has created and how much big potential it has.


MM you disappointed all Soldat players. You are making PR guides in your reallife, but cant make a PR for Soldat?

The last dot is that You dont even take Soldat as a game, you didnt add it to yours company game list.

Make soldat opensource, take soldat project lead to someone else or make new devs team lead by Falcon or someone else than Shoozza, but Soldat needs big changes as you can see.

We are awaiting your reply.

I'm saying this for ages, especially about map making.
Shoozza is not a bad guy, he's just a programmer.
He definetely can't lead the community and I doubt he knows the Soldat's needs. It's obvious.

But who gonna change it and set a proper team? MM?  ::)

How are pointless comments like these going to help anything, or motivate the developers to reply constructively? This is supposed to be a thread of constructive criticism and questions, not blind rage or a spambox.

You can spend here another 8 Years waiting for anything. For past year massive amount of people write exact same things, most of them was bashed by some forum members, because its "drama", or "by posting negative things you not helping"...

I was saying it all the time that Soldat need proper team that contain someone with knowledge of communication and PR. That game need rework of graphic, and features needed by new players... No one care about it then, and no one gonna care now.
People spend here dozens of hours creating mockups and posting thoughtful suggestions. Did anyone saw any of it implemented in game for past years? Nope... Did devs ever at least tried using what community actually made(maps, graphics?) Nope... But hey! we have F up WM with every version! That something.

Overall what is gonna happen now is that:
- Shoozza will show up, say that we should stop this drama because it not helping. There is a chance that he give up work to someone else, and we gonna have the same situation: All work will end on one person shoulder, no one will give a F about help from community or other places, There will be no any person that would deal with promotion/PR.

- Some annoying old forum member show up saying that its free project and they work how they like. And we should Shut the F up because everything is fine.

- MM will show up and start mumbling about "getting this project on feet"(again in past 2 months...) and everyone will start crying from joy because MM has spoken!

Nah, MM created Soldat but as far as developer and publisher he is really not that great at all. I think that some devs who make "flashlight apps" for Android have more knowledge and hearth for creating and promoting their work than all his work he made in "Transhuman" Design. I think he would rather kill that project than polish it and review it as something new and amazing.
Its literally like he want to forget about it, especially looking at how its described in thd site: literally ONE screenshot and 3 lines of description... that say something about his PR towards Soldat.

There are really crappy games on market filled with bugs, but they are in better shape than soldat and get nice player base, promotion and development, but Soldat still have small chance to beat them, but only if it would get proper team and support from its author, then it could be probably be ready in next 3-4 months with proper features and graphic. If you look at any other Indie-like game you will knew that its possible, even with its famous spaghetti code(graphic and map with more than ONE person like now, can be done in few weeks really). And even with 50-100 bucks gathered from donations/author pocket you can prepare advertising for eg. google ads.
Because after all Soldat for past years was bought "few times" so there should be at least 20 bucks lying somewhere...

But there is big BUT... and its called time: Soldat lost his chance long time ago, when all those people that where ready to help give up waiting for miracle(and we talk here about YEARS). Now all Soldat have is maybe 50 people that actually read this forum and are interested in development, and about 100 players that actually play it beside some private matches between friends. Now all we have here are bunch of people tired of that comedy, that just write what they always wanted, but they didnt want to "offend anyone", or was so busy licking each other butts... And even butt lickers are gone now, because they realize that Soldat development style remind old cat that sleep all the time and dont really want to change his place. ;]
