Foof on WL? Damn, the end really is nigh
As for this thread, we didn't see a meaningful input, aside from the hilarious full tank instance, for a while now so I kinda wish mods would just lock the thread already.
Foof on WL? Damn, the end really is nigh
there are a lot of people who only log in the game when a city happens, and log off the game when it ends, and wait for the next city. what is the motivation of these people?
I can't unsee this now! Every KOTBS is Corbyn!!Meliannia wrote: ↑Mon Jul 27, 2020 6:07 pm
3. i dont know if the devs can change this but the models themselves, the Order tank models need to be more attractive to new players, the destro tank models look class and suped up, the order tanks look thin and uninspiring, the Dorf Ib shud be RamMan from heMan, the KOTBS shud be Thrud or Conan, the nelf Sm shud be Fingolfin but they all just look like Jeremey Corbyn or Joe Biden.
As a GM your response to me isn’t necessary as you mentioned to another you just enforce rules and don’t balance. Your responses are mostly the cause of the drama against staff. As you stated, we can discuss what we want and “we don’t participate as much in community discussions”. However you have plenty of time for nearly most of my posts, which are few. I typically don’t indulge in your responses by replying because you’re just a GM and balance changes don’t go through you, but you are entitled to your opinion. As a GM, representative of the server, every word you say can cause consequences.wargrimnir wrote: ↑Mon Jul 27, 2020 7:51 pmThe subtle insinuation again that we don't listen to community feedback doesn't come as any surprise. The handful of community members who think they have the answers are always going to antagonize when they don't have control. I suppose I'll keep mentioning it in threads where people try to state otherwise. We use community feedback. We don't participate as much in community discussion because bad actors have a frequent tendency to act badly when they think there's attention being given out. If you're so high on the smell of your own farts to miss the changes happening week to week, there's not going to be much we can do to convince you. Limited staff, limited time, and opening conversations with the community big brains is a waste of both. You guys discuss what you want, and when something comes up that seems do-able, it's usually picked up internally and worked on. That's a far cry from "ears are closed". Your assumption is based on your own fat ego, not reality.Spellbound wrote: ↑Mon Jul 27, 2020 6:09 pm
I can't help with advice if the ears are closed. Appreciate they run the server for free, miss the game and they can choose how they balance to make it fun for them and their vision. Phoenix DAOC had their vision away from live and it worked out for them with Realm Timers and other rules. Some visions work, some don't and need adjustments when population changes.

edit: Ok I've had a few minutes to process this and calm down. I'm gonna take my player hat off for a minute and try to demonstrate something:
If you were to tell me, "hey there's this great online game. 24 classes, 2 realms, 3 pairings, it's all about these giant battlefield fights and it's an MMO" I would be pretty excited.
So I might follow that with, "So it sounds like a PvP kind of game? Who wins?"
To which you could say, "Well basically you spend all day fighting between different areas. Like 1,000 people man, sometimes it's 300 vs 300 in one fight."
"Ya ya, I get it," I say, "But who wins?"
"Well, one side wins about 81% of the time."
And I would be surprised. Shocked even. If one side of a "competitive" game wins 81% of the time, I wouldn't call that a competitive game.
Now hold on! I know you're already smashing your keyboards ready to defend Destro and the game and say one thing or the other....but folks....
81% is a fact. It's right there. 68 out of the last 84 cities were won by Destro. 57% of the time those cities are Altdorf.
You can talk about balance all you want. Those numbers right there tell the story.
Prepare for the cognitive dissonance.
So were you going to start doing that now? Or did you want to bring up your time as a balance tester at Mythic again?
Numbers indeed don’t lie, unfortunately it’s the interpretation of said number where the issue of lie/agenda etc starts.
Not one reply to my brainstorm of some type of city bolster based on win loss ratios for characters. Maybe just a terribad idea it didn't even deserve some some hate.TwistedSister77 wrote: ↑Fri Jul 24, 2020 10:47 pm
I'm not logged in right now, so I'm not sure if a character's Tome tracks cities wins vs losses. If it does, great, if not perhaps start tracking that. End goal perhaps being a bolster to certain stats to slightly level the playing field (the amount of bolster based on your win loss ratio record)... think about it.
It may also help with the pug vs premade a bit.
Note, I did not specify a side... would help balance a specific city scenario for either faction.
