Re: Two things other games have that we don't

Dread - The Caravan has been stuck just south of the crossroads for most of this armageddon. Once army hits try it again.

Re: Quest Hint

I am working on the Aeria Staff quest, and I have begun assembling what you need, but I haven't been able to get the glass blower to make me anything because I am an outsider. All he will tell me is 'I only sell bottles and vials to outsiders now.' I have done all the tours and such, and I am not s...

Re: Problems Thread

Contrary to what tune Althyrian the one note band is playing, the problem why players don't stay is the degree of difficulty for Genesis is much, much higher and unforgiving than most modern free-to-play games. Of course, you're right about both the tune and the difficulty. And there are ways the d...

Re: Problems Thread

2) There is no "end-game content". There's no reason when you hit max level to stop grinding and find something else to do with your time. Even if there were a stat cap to fix size inflation / size gap, the only true reason to hit the cap would be so whenever your toon's guild got into a war, you c...

Re: Problems Thread

actually number 1 problem is genesis being outdated game (like all muds) - 15/20 years ago there was no real alternative in terms of online gaming, now there's plenty of other games to choose from (99% with graphics :D) - don't get me wrong - i still enjoy genesis, being this game to chill, but I d...

Re: Problems Thread

6) 1 Replies 61 Views (at time of edit) Apparently everyone is willing to comment on various solutions, but not on what the underlying problems actually are? Guess we better solve it quick, whatever it is. I realize I may come from a different perspective as everyone else, but my world is software ...

Re: Problems Thread

Absolute number 1 problem, far beyond all other problems in my opinion: TOO FEW PLAYERS. If someone can argue for another problem being bigger, feel free to. But thats what I think. So we need to figure out why we have too few players: Again, I think there is one clear number 1 reason: NOBODY KNOWS...

Re: Stats - Diminishing Returns

Maybe it's time to admit that Genesis will forever remain imbalanced in this regard. From what I can tell, the biggest players of the realms will never agree to any sort of nerf on themselves (and why should they?). Perhaps, too, it's time to change our expectations of Genesis. It keeps getting sai...

Re: Stats - Diminishing Returns

So basically your philosophy is, "Sorry all you people who've invested so much time, screw you, we don't value anything you've put into your character." The only real problem with size is with PVP, and if you think it's is the only major issue that makes it imbalanced you really need to open your e...

Re: Death Penalty Opinions

Alright, it is clear to me that though none of you have had a chance to experience it to really know how it feels, there is too much dislike of this theoretical system to make me want to try it out. Perhaps the thing to do is to try it out and help people to develop a more informed decision. I thin...
