  1. I voted "Yes it is against our community rules," but I don't agree with "community rules," I just think that it's a mean thing to do. Edit: By that I mean that if anything should be considered dispute worthy, or if there are to be community rules, then this should definitely be a part of them. However, I disagree with many other aspects of "community rules," including the idea of them. Democratic justice just leads to mob mentality, and the lynching of innocence.
  2. Important notice for young people

    "The state must declare the child to be the most precious treasure of the people. As long as the government is perceived as working for the benefit of the children, the people will happily endure almost any curtailment of liberty and almost any deprivation" -Adolf Hitler Ripe within society? Are you kidding? It's extremely rare, it's just that almost every case is posted on the news. It gives a distorted view of a the truth. Imagine if every murder was posted on the news, it would make the world look like a pretty grim place indeed. Why? I see no reason why those people should be told they can't play EL.
  3. Should selling gc for $ be banned

    Why would anyone want to spend countless hours creating and supporting a game where the very players who enjoy it so much are the ones underselling its creator, taking sales right out of his pocket? [snip] Most players who farm and sell gc (outside of in-game transfers for EL shop purchases) are effectively stealing income from Radu. It is, of course, up to the creators if they wish to continue the game development, or allow/disallow various game practices. However, that being said, this poll was directed towards the players, presumably to determine the community's stance on gold farming. In regards to the effects of gold farming on the official shop's income, I would contend that shifting focus to a more (unique) service oriented business model would help to alleviate any problems that may or may not exist. This is basically what Radu suggested in the other thread with the Gold Member proposal. I would think of it more as practical than despicable. And, at any rate, with the current gc drop and conversion rates it's hardly possible to make decent income from this method. Previously, it had been posible to make 20-25k/hour and sell for 4-5k/$ yielding an estimated $5-6 per hour. Now, at an exchange rate of 6-8/$1, and after all the drops reductions, you would be lucky to make $2 an hour. Perhaps, if the gold farmers made a union, similar to the manu union that was proposed in the other thread, the gold prices may stabilize a bit and people could get rostos again for cheaper prices, Radu would still have improved income from the shop and gold farmers would make better $/hour. And again, I don't see how this could remotely qualify as stealing money in any reasonable sense. It would be akin to saying that not participating in invasions or other money sinks is stealing money, and therefore "despicable."
  4. Should selling gc for $ be banned

    I voted Yes selling gc for $ should be ALLOWED. But the poll options were kind of confusing, first it says "should it be banned?" then the poll option right beneath it says "should selling gc for $ be allowed?" with Yes/No option. People could get confused and think they are voting "no it should not be banned" or "yes it should be banned" instead of what the poll option actually says, because of the text that proceeds it.
  5. Gold membership

    This is a good suggestion, but I also think adding in the ability for items to be bound would help a lot. For instance there could be cheaper bound rostos (say $2-3 each) and then normal tradeable ones, or just remove the tradeable ones all together. Now, at first, with the tradeable rostos gone, there might be decreased profits from less people buying for a $->rosto->gc carry trade, BUT, once the current supplies of rostos dry up, people would start buying the bound rostos for own use. Or, a player who offers gc->$ conversion would sell them rostos, but the $ would still be guaranteed to go to the shop. Another solution is just to make rostos shop-only items
  6. Gold membership

    I voted no to both options, since I won't buy it and don't really agree with the idea. *But*, upon reconsideration, if this can help to keep goldfarming in game, then I will support it. After thinking about it, I believe that there should also be some shop items that have nothing to do with the player's wealth, but which give small advantages. Like un-tradeable armor with stats that are around that of tit, for a price that's cheaper than what one would get if thet bought rostos and sold for gc.

  11. Serping spawns

    Hmm.. Well, while I think that if the spawns were not designed (intentionally or not) to be multitrainable and the exp per single mob is decent, then spawn sharing isn't really a bad thing. But they should still ask the other party who was there politely if it's ok. Now, on the other hand if it's a double spawn that is only good exp with both mobs, and someone comes over and starts attacking one of the mobs on the spawn (even if they dont attack the mob you are fighting), then I feel the trainer who was there first would be perfectly justified to pull out their best weap and serp the spawns of the spawn stealer indefinitely. Infact, if this ever comes up, and if I'm playing, let me know, I'll help serp the spawn stealer. I don't think that the "nobody owns a spawn" thing can be used with a double standard, atleast in so far as a 'community rule' goes. That is, if it's ok to steal a spawn, then it's just as ok to serp it. Therefore, if someone steals your spawn, serp them! -Senia

  18. Mage class, Fighter class

    You must be fighting rats if you restore when you are less than 30 points away from being dead. Well, if you know how much damage your opponent does, then yes, you may restore from less than that from time to time, but that was an extreme example (48will/48reason/100magic). I suppose only pure mages are supposed to get close to a full restore then, because battle mages may need some instinct. Edit: and if there is a way to remove magic immunity then people may want to restore sooner, to avoid being finished off by hit+harm
  19. Mage class, Fighter class

    You must have a lot of HP if 100*1.5+48*5 (which equals 150+240=390) is not enough for you. Yes, if you have CoL+MoL and 48 phys (and because you already maxed will for rationality) that will be 420hp.
  20. Mage class, Fighter class

    It's not like they cannot be tweaked if needed, right? I would say let's try it and if something needs changes it may be done with time. We will never know unless we try. Yes, that's true. but maybe magic*1+rationality*10 would be nice for restoration spell, because if it's only rationality*5 it will be very hard to max out restore for your HP if you go for a build with a lot of will. Yes -- exactly why it shouldn't be rationality*10. If players will all of a sudden have 400+ material points to restore, it should take more pickpoints to restore all of it. Also, high will builds will have tons of mana. If someone wants to have high material points as well as high mana, it is reasonable to restore less health per cast with lower rationality. I do like to see the magic skill level actually counting towards restoration. Something like 2x magic (plus a smaller rationality bonus) would look great for me...though I am of course biased in that respect. With that said, will provides material points, ethereal points, and rationality, which makes it the perfect mage attribute. Maybe this would prove to be too strong, if maxed out? (edit: too strong with a 5x rationality multiplier in the restoration formula, I mean) OK, when I said hard, it should have read impossible. Even with maxing your rationality attributes and magic level 100, you wouldn't be able to have a full restore.

    he;s got ideas I need to read slower lol
  23. Mage class, Fighter class

    There are already items that give magic resistences ingame, which are basically like a magic defense. It would be nice if higher magic levels provided more magic def though. And about my idea before, I think there could be difficulties with mana drain for instance, where your (20) mana would be used to cast the spell and nothing would be drained... <Edit>
  24. Mage class, Fighter class

    Will is very important to fighters as it adds health and mana, also reaction is much better for training than dexterity (and with high accuracy swords, perhaps even PK). Now, in my opinion, having stats to affect the magical abilities to make the mage class build more effective is a good idea. However, I do not think it should affect Restoration, which I believe should continue to "restore" all your HP. Also in regard to Magic Immunity, perhaps there can be a Diminishing Returns modifier on it, so for instance, if you have 90 seconds to go, and you resist a spell it could reduce the remaining time by 15 seconds. Of course, it would require other modifications to help balance it, such as the magic level/rationality affecting the amount of immunity you lose per resist, and/or the amount of DR from casting an offensive spell on someone. (e.g. the power of the spell would cause more or less time to be removed from the MI effect). my 2 cents
