Fellow Genesis Enthusiasts,

As Arman has stated on the Official Forum, we have discovered a bug in
Genesis that has persisted for more than 10 years. The bug has resulted in
guild specials (melee damage, spell damage, spell heal, etc.) being nearly
3x (270%) more powerful than the amount of guild tax they cost for combat-
aid provided. Our efforts to balance the game will be thwarted for as long
as we choose to ignore this newly-discovered (huge!) issue.

Many ideas have been tossed about, but the simplest is to simply rip the
bandaid off, feel the pain, and move forward knowing we are now in "correct
balance". If we did this, fixing the formula that controls special power, it
would be a radical nerf to the entire game's guild specials. The nerf would
mean that all specials in all guilds would be reduced to 37% of their
current (incorrect) power levels.

I'd like to invite you all to visit the Official Forum and participate in
a poll that I have created there. You can do so at:

https://www.genesismud.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=4576

Please consider the implications, and tell us what you think you would do if
we gave this nerf a try. Feel free to speculate on how such a change would
impact different aspects of standard gameplay: grinding, level progression
at different sizes, gear-hunting, pvp, etc.

We'll be reading.

Thanks,
G.
