New Wipe ranking
« on: May 26, 2017, 05:02:00 PM »
The most unbalanced part of the game is the difference between  any non-legend char and a legend 20th rank character.
This isnt a problem, especially as the playerbase thins out over the course of a wipe. however;the advantage given to groups who get to zones first after a pwipe is a problem imho.
Usually getting out front of the pack will get you to level 30 faster, but more importantly, it gets you an  18 or 19
rank advantage, because all the levelling zones had fresh ranks for being the zoning frontrunner.
A simple solution would be to make acculmulation of rank % begin after level 30 has been attained, or perhaps some other mud event happens like Cyan or Soth killed.

Based on Jorquin's earlier post about the wipe it sounds like he is going to "kill" every mob in the game immediately before he lets the players back on, so wipe day ranking will be minimal.  While I have no idea exactly how rank regeneration is coded, it seems like it will be about 48 hours before unkilled mobs return to "full ranks."  This will buy other clans that are racing some time to catch up - it doesn't sound like anyone will be getting huge ranks by being the first to run the "high" zones 12 hours into the wipe.
