Re: Activity

Don't die down to change stats because of the DIS change. The magic system is NOT finished yet. Going suicidal now might be a decision you end up regretting later. About changes to the game causing players to leave, that's unfortunate of course, but this is a process that takes time. I still think ...

Re: Activity

Amberlee: Do you really think we are changing things for the sake of changing? I don't think you do? Clearly we disagree on what is a good change and what is a bad change here, but ask 50 players and you'll get 25 different answers. _ANY_ change will likely cause a number of unhappy players who like...

Re: Dulling vs undulling weapons and more.

NIls/Targun: I too think it would be good if bosses always had _something_, or almost always at least. If a wizard volunteers to do the work needed, I am definitely not going to stand in anyone's way. I am not sure what else to tell you. You all know how it works, there are tons of good ideas that ...

Re: Dulling vs undulling weapons and more.

The amount of unsuccessful hunts for certain items are reaching three digits. I do get this raised as an issue from a number of sources. And I do discuss this semi-regularly with Cotillion, who is the master of game data. We do know exactly to multiple decimal points the frequency of each magical w...

Re: Activity

Guild data isn't readily available and takes a lot of manual work to calculate. I am not going to do that more than once a year... at most... sorry. Me and Greneth did compare some player numbers, and we're definitely down compared to May/June last year. But it's hard to compare anything to last spr...

Amberlee/Amorana: I deleted your posts with silly bickering. Stick to the forum rules, or just get married already. You're sounding exactly like me and my wife.

Re: Patch week!

We've wanted to make DIS more useful a long time, and the majority of players have too. This is the best alternative I've ever heard, and I think it makes perfect sense. Of course, a new stat thrown into the mix that nobody has focused on is a bit problematic. But that would have been the case no ma...

Re: Patch week!

So both most common caster bases (elf and gnome) have a discipline penalty! How's that any good? I really fail to see what was the aim here :/ Please someone of the wizteam, enlighten me. :( The aim was to make DIS more useful. Having three physical stats that mainly effect melee combat, and three ...
