High demand, low slot game?
« on: May 26, 2016, 08:29:23 PM »
It seems that the SH demand is fairly high in this GW, and slots are low.  Not my favorite combination.  I favored the GW2 approach, with high demand being matched by high slot numbers, so that the game is more by game play, less by camping online waiting for slot drops.  Just saying...

Just wanted to post something about that. It's already a big problem to find slots on my base airport, and a even bigger problem to find slots for a route where there is still a 300px demand or so.

The slots will be increasing, but the players who are online the most are able to grab them...

Plus Sami stated the short haul demand starts higher and will reduce over time with the opposite true for long haul demand.

He said over time short haul demand will fall and long haul will rise

Yup, and the short haul eats up the very limited slots a lot faster than LH.

Another variable in the mix:

- demand equivalent to that of maybe late 70s or 80s
- aircraft to serve this demand is 1/2 the size of SH, MH aircraft in the 70s, 80s

meaning it will take 2x flights, 2x slots to serve the demand.

My biggest problem will be retaining all the slots I own when I transition my fleet to jets that travel almost twice as fast as my props

Looks like this is it for the fast slot growth, and it looks like now we are in a vary slow slot growth rate.

I have to say I prefer games with plentiful slots...
