You mean immortals and their friends would use ill gotten information for their betterment? That couldn't be right. That's 3 wipes back situation.

In this wipe they would just kill you in a shady situation and you just wouldn't get anything back. If Ennis has anything it was probably just coincidence that got him inside your room while the elevator was moving LOL

Meh, he didn't paste the part where I said it was entirely my fault and I'm just going to assume some scrub got the set of a lifetime and be happy with that.

I didn't even attempt to find out who looted it because there was no reason to, I don't even want to know tbh.

It's a little weird they looted it so fast but not that crazy really since it's a high traffic area at times and it's easy to miss a message on eye if you aren't paying attention.

And Nom, I died I think to a spec from a mob i fought in the previous zone that I didn't realize hadn't worn, but regardless, you if aren't dying with your elite set you need to try something harder(even if this was something I normally do naked).

I'll be back I always am, the sense of relief I feel to just not want to play for a couple weeks is real though.

can someone give goodie timmy his eq back? this guy has done nothing but good in his mud career. seriously.

how does kholos keep ending up at stacked RISE corpses that happen to randomly die in zones?

It is weird he happened to log and and go to that room at just the right time isn't it.

Like I said, I wished I didn't know who got there. Now instead of assuming a scrub got it, I assume a scrub got it with some timely advice from someone who maybe sees whenever someone in the game dies.

Combine that with Jorquin saying it's ironic I love the game and basically calling me an asshole earlier in this thread and I feel like I might need more than 2 weeks off.

It's a conspiracy!

Tim, how dare you call me a scrub when I always tried to load you DK gear on Oom. Even when you weren't CORE. We just weren't that good back then.

Hahaha! That is the biggest shot I can land at the moment, I was hoping it wouldn't go completely unnoticed.

Everyone who knows me knows I don't carry grudges, or really even get mad at people, but I had to be a forum hero because that's what happens on Arctic when you have no other recourse!

Here is my take on all these issues:

-pk should stay as it is and be managed less not more.  It isn't as much of a problem anymore and any 'fix' just adds more new ways to screw other people over risk free.  Keep it simple and keep arctic in its unique niche.  What should be managed though is the multi bot squads but keep the pk option without tying up immortal time with some arbitrary system of rules.

-The wipe rush and massquit one month after wipe due to some manufactured issue (the pick the wings off flies stage) is just part of the wipe process.  Don't give this stage too much validity and just accept the beauty of how it fits in the act.  The procedure just has to and will happen every wipe as it has happened every wipe.

-The wipes should be longer.  Ideally in my mind they should be quite a bit longer because if the balance of the game was right, wipes would be unnecessary.  This allows casuals to enjoy a full character late in the wipe once they finally grind one out for at least a few months.  Especially ridiculously long grind classes like druids.  It also means, if rent was changed as per below, people could start up whenever they wanted.  Then wipes would just occur to freshen things up, change coding, add zones etc.  I would suggest at least yearly or so.

-The xp grind might be a little long but it is ok if the wipes are longer.  If the wipes remain the same, then it is too long-especially the spell grind for casters.

-druids are terrible.  The stoneskin essence grind, the spell grind, the scribe/brew grind, the weak spell list (30% are total crap ie Plant walk, feast) make this class a loooong road to legend.  And then at legend they are generally too weak to get a place in an 8 man.  With the quicker wipes, the class is just an a curiosity for one or two people in a bigger clan who remember how awesome they used to be 10 years ago.

-Everything under limit 5 should 1) rent decay 2) have their rent costs adjusted upward and 3) and not allow deeprent rebates so once the massquit occurs (see above) then that gear will come back into circulation at some point after that.  On that, decay timers for items limit 5 and less should have a 20% randomness in the timer length.  This massrent of all the stuff from the massquit is a big issue in my mind.  Late in wipes lately, stuff starts to pop up and that should happen more.

There is my 2 cents on lots of topics.

Tim's eq loss has nothing to do with the no pk. Exactly how would it be different if there was? Someone looted him and deeprents gear then what? Get your nose out of tims ass.

Now this has been possible to do for awhile, only now I am very limited in how to retaliate, except doing the same thing.

I suppose some people will always be cunts.
