Title: Its been 5 weeks since pvp nerf and arctic mud population has collapsed
Post by: Kir on August 16, 2017, 09:32:36 PM
It has been 5 weeks since pvp was removed and currently there are currently 10 people online, one being an afk imm, the other being myself, so really 8 people playing this game during prime euro hours and half-prime US hours: Is it now safe to say  that the removal of pvp was a colossal failure? Prior to ruining pk there were about 60 people playing. Some players would have dropped off after 5 weeks no doubt, but to have the population drop to 15-20% is an obvious problem. Is there any plans for the moronic staff to apologize for this kind of devastation? Or the possibility of changing arctic staff again to a not-so incompetent staff? Even Hossmud had better numbers than this for christ's sake. Utterly pathetic.

I believe I all ready called Daniel long out on this and he just called me names and has not been seen again. I cannot even think of how to fix the game at this point but restoring pk would be a start.
1. restore pk
2. unlim gear
3. nerf orbs
4. nerf no bash items
5. announce changes and set pwipe for 3-4 months from now

Not sure if you are stupid or retarded but you realize that this is a global game, and time zones are different depending on the region of the world right?

I do indeed and once again your post midday for US players was made at 11pm for European players, once again on a work/school night. Maybe you should poll the number of folks online the moment the game reboots, then you can exclaim you're the only person online. I'm sure you'll feel better then.

1. Bring back PK.
2. Raise group sizes to 10
3. Make common sense changes to classes - buff druids, remove shitty skill training, bring back mage area, etc.
4. Have immortals start paying attention to suggestions that people who actually play this game have to say.
5. Change gear & spell % loads to something decent.

Do that and see people actually play this game.  It's very easy.

I agree with all but 1 t hing reed said. Mage area is broken when its fully available. That shit does not need to come back. There should only be 3 or so BIG mages in the game. Period. So bapt having 8-10 folks running around stunning, prisming, blast waving, nightmaring.

Jorake,

I hear what you are saying and get where you are coming from.  See a different perspective though.

If there were 3 big mages running around, the clans that had those 3 mages would be at a CRAZY advantage.  Mage area in PK when it isn't fully nerfed is elite, I think we can all agree on that. 

That is why I think it should either stay at 0 or should be in a load location where it can be accessed by almost all clans.  If Rise had 2 big mages and <enter clan name here> had 0, Rise would be at a severe advantage.  If both clans had 5 mages with the big spells, the playing ground is even.

I know this to be true, because once upon a time, Jack and I were running around with misty longswords and berserker shields trying to PK The Almighty Jorquin, Ilya, and Sanjuro.  Then we learned shards quest, spelled up 5-6 black robes, and destroyed them in Mithas with nightmare.  If we hadn't had access to nightmare/blastwave/prism in a fairly easy load location, we would have never competed.  We didn't have the firepower to kill Cyan or a big mob at the time, so it would have been impossible to really compete.

Mages are 100% useless atm in Zoning.  Tent may be the only decent zoning spell a mage has.  The rest is all utility.  Acid mist has been nerfed into oblivion, white robes can spam shards of arcana (best case scenario), and red robes maybe chain lightning?

If I were The Almighty Jorquin, i'd put the nightmare/prism/blastwave book back on void like it was last wipe, or even 5 headed.  That way all clans can get it.  I'd also nerf the PVP chance of disabling down to maybe 7-10%, so 1 nightmare couldn't destroy an entire group.  The end.

Agree with 1 thru 4.

Main suggestion - bring back PK and changed limited items to unlimited but low load % except for maybe game changing items like dragon orbs / no bash / auto haste.

But mithril rapiers, heavily scratched gauntlets, etc, make unlimited item count but low load %.

This way - if a clan loses a battle and loses 8-10 sets of gear - they can still re-equip with competitive gear.

Frankly I still see no reason to bring back PK. There seem to be 3 to 5 people whining about the lack of PK. Everyone else on the game is playing and enjoying the game. There is no paranoia about who you group with. The worst thing to deal with right now is people stealing zones which while annoying has seemed to have died down of late. I see more and more older players coming back and playing casually.

All is fine.

Couldn't you just para and poison a target and wait 8 minutes while keeping the target weaknesses and silenced and para to slowly kill them? The blind poison route was how used to try and xp clerics back in the 90s and would probably be a viable means to killing a target paired with a druid... Surely there's a lack of creativity...what about summon fearing a target into a Dt or locking a target in a no magic room and slowly bruising them to death over 200 rounds? I haven't been able to play this wipe. Maybe one day, but not anytime terribly soon.

Hate to hear read that post about Charlie missing at sea. Really sucks, really, I hope that a finality is reached for closure and peace of his family

Questions I ask myself when I think about playing Arctic, after the addiction pangs subside-

How many hours has this game robbed from time with our friends, family and real responsibilities? How many marriages have suffered or ended, how many relationships strained or lost? How many opportunities lost to serve others?

Is the vitriol in this thread alone a testament to the game's ability to inspire wickedness in our hearts towards other people?

When we die and leave this world, are we prepared to answer with "It was just text on a computer screen"?

Friends I would urge you to turn to Jesus Christ while you can, this game is a path to hell.

Psalm 115:4-8   

Their idols are silver and gold, the work of human hands. They have mouths, but do not speak; eyes, but do not see. They have ears, but do not hear; noses, but do not smell. They have hands, but do not feel; feet, but do not walk; and they do not make a sound in their throat. Those who make them become like them; so do all who trust in them.

Hebrews 9:27

Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.

John 3:20

Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed.

John 14:6

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Thank you for reading.

Just make it like WoW a bit and make real elite items harder percentage load and just remove limit items and make literally everything NO-limit, remove dragon orbs.
and make it so noone can lose items or maybe make it like old school sheafs where when you die you may lose 1 or 2 items at random that is equipped. Sorry but at least we could pk and not cry and you still have to not suck to get good items. It removes the stresses of everyday bullshit, Also allows people with no time to enjoy more of the game instead of not enjoying it because all the gear is on 1 or 2 clans who will just win because they have Bots (RISE/CORE or Eric Jardine with his 8 man). I was running around with my own 7 man bot army this wipe and had probably at least 10 limit 1 items like blue mistress,Abayo,sun radiance,mantooth,mirage,luni armor are just some things off the top of my head, I mean talk about bapting unfair. Not going to play again anyways. One last thing, bapt you dan arnold you been trying to suck daniel long's dick so hard since you got caught trying to report a botter on your bot character lmfao so just shut the bapt up, Guess what DUMBLEDORE DIES bitch!

Wait what? First off, I have no idea who you are.  Secondly, I haven't spoken to Jorquin in probably 9-12 months. I have no idea what he's doing and I certainly wouldn't bother 'reporting' botting. I'm not against it or for it. The only person I can think of who this is would be that psychotic drug fueled idiot, David. I'm probably right but it brings me great joy knowing that whatever you think I did to you makes you lose sleep and get upset on internet forums. Whoever you are, you should probably just grow up and move on. Crying on the forums about how some person wronged you in the past is pretty unhealthy. Take care, mystery Newb!
