Stepping down and looking for new Soldat developers
« 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!
