- Fresh start is ok, so long as leveling is accelerated in some way...
- More HP isn't good because it means longer not harder...
- Increase the death penalty (lots of variance in opinions here)
- Harder BAMs are a must
knoxxer, honestly speaking, I don't think anyone will actually start from scratch. You know, the game structure itself making all the content from 1 to 58 pretty much meaningless. So there's not so many people who'll want to do it again like 9-th time just for increased difficulty; and new server need quite a lot of people, not just a bunch of enthusiasts.
It may work if seriously remake PVE to 'open-world' type (so I can go anywhere at it may have meaning regardless of my level). If not, "hardcore" server pretty much needs only some new "hardcore" endgame content, maybe some powerful world bosses, and that's a different thing than a whole new server.
Thanks Lointaine, that is good feedback, I think doing 1-58 again - even if more difficult - would be a deterrent as well.
Some fun ideas!
Everyone talks a big game but if we went and made a more difficult server, would you guys really play on it? Opening up and maintaining a new server has a cost - both in development and ongoing maintenance. Would you guys be willing to start over on a new server? Would you stick around knowing your progression would be more difficult? What constitutes difficulty? BAM's only? Death penalties? Bosses? More damage? More HP for mobs?
We hope to take what we learn from this test event and apply it to future events and promotions. So far things are going well so I expect we will do something similar in the future but we have nothing specific to announce at this time.
Awesome tips OP.
Make sure you haven't modified the textures in the game. This seems to be a cause for some folks.
We have a couple optimization tweaks coming. I am not sure what build we will get them in but QA indications are quite positive.
My posts have stayed the same. I bashed the game and made dev threads all the time. Some naughty people on here use the voting system in ways it was not intended, although I don't blame them since the voting wasn't really thought out very well.
Should probably limit number of votes per day so people don't go willy nilly voting on everything that doesn't need their opinion. Sometimes people get down voted for nothing like saying "hi" and some people on here are really vindictive when others don't agree with them as well. Also whos stopping who from making a million accounts and up voting themselves.
Correct you have stayed true and hostile from start to finish :)
We know all accounts created by the same person because it is a huge red flag for things like RMT. Not really worth flagging yourself to try and bump up a title, everyone has their secrets and all it takes is a bit of attention.
Not to mention the annoyance of actually voting for yourself thousands of times. To each their own, the end of the day it is a title on a forum - if there wasn't all these fun 'what ifs' then the system would be pretty boring.
Thanks for the post Xenoie. We care about the game - it supports our entire business and subsequently each of our families - so of course we also want it to be the best game it can be as well.
We try and communicate our ideas and opinions as much as possible but we also know it can always be done more. Thanks for your feedback on the matter.
