    Maybe I shouldnt say nothing, im sure plently of people have gotten mad about staff, dev, or rp related issues and decided to leave on their own accord. This isnt exactly a new game though, frequent over 200 pops probably are a thing of the past now.
    The 30 minute rounds are killing the game. It is fun as marine until you do it too much then it becomes dull even for them. Its cancer as fuck as xeno.

    You're not wrong. Something needs to be done from a dev perspective to fix the rapid fire rounds.

    Nothing we can do as Admins are going to solve this issue, unfortunately, other than enforce briefing, which is what it is.

    Yea the amount of speedrun rounds we've been having of late is insane but I don't think it's sole on the devs to fix. The skill level of xenos has gone out the window where if ya don't have good builder castes or have xenos leading marines back to the hive ya gonna get speedrunned most of the time but devs can obliviously help with the issue like with doing away with age which they're doing right now.

    But on topic I would take the pop we have now over 200+ anyday

    So when you're playing as xeno and unless you're one of the 6-9 players that was blessed with a tier 3 then you're pretty much stuck being their meatshields because truly nothing you do will matter or contribute in a meaningful way to the round, and of course that also means that if the players that do get tier 3 turn out to be baldos or even worse MOBA Boilers , then xenos are doomed to get fucked by 12:45 so it feels you're not actually doing anyting engaging.

    Super big lack of Development focusing areas other than pure TDM/Balance.
    Entire Dev team is pumping out updates without any focus towards RP or Social aspects.

    Nothing wrong with that at all if it's intended but I get the vibe from various staff members that there's a huge lack of cooperation from the Dev side with the Management side of the game.

    Also CM goes through dips and varies in population for many out-of-game factors. Specifically Covid recently was a huge influx and activity increase, with the world -starting- to go back to normal, people are returning to normal life.

    A lot of people on staff (especially on the moderation side) have skin too thin for any kind of conversation that proper co-operation between devs and moderation teams would require.

    Devs just learned that they need to keep to themselves or they'll drown in shitty drama and not be able to do any work.

    preptime needs to get obliterated, not rapidfire rounds. 30m or 60m of good content is great, but since most rounds have 30m prep, 30m choke gameplay and 10m content it's very diluted.

    Also it's become very clear to me that CM shouldn't continue towards a more MRP path because its playerbase is simply not MRP and doesn't have the capabilities for it. 99% of people just play self inserts and think that saying "sarge" is good RP. Funny milsim RP haha. And since we can't have any good RP, I'd rather the game become as mechanically fun as possible.

    GET DOWN SARGE A LURKER!!!!!
    WE FUCKING GOT HIM SARGE!!!!!
    GET SOME!!!!!
    SUPPRESSING FIRE!!!!!

    When you have staff unironically saying that shooting xenos is RP you begin to wonder what standards everyone is following - is CoD TDM some form of roleplay now?

    Moderation Team (Admin/Mods) really shouldn't be speaking to Dev's in term of game-direction or changes.

    It should be Head Dev + Managers cooperating and communicating for the direction of the game.

    They were included when I said "moderation team".

    Regardless, we have Dev Architects now and that is supposedly their whole job - to decide the direction of the game, though idk how involved other heads other than the head devs get.
