It was a pleasure helping you how I can.


The pleasure is mine. I hope you will continue to do so.

I see.
I've once (w6?) quit for good for a smiliar reason. Stat caps and some other things brought me back.
Still siege systems, satiations and nidbanes are in place, so I will see where it leads.

Well, now you can have all the fun you want being total shit compared to bot-grinding raiding factions with their combat stats getting to 4-digits in a matter of days. But everyone won't be average, right?

Well, one step backward for every good movement i suppose.

One thing I would really appreciate in patch notes is more insight into changes such as this? I get by now that some changes are radical and unpredictable but i can't fathom the logistics you guys use sometimes (i.e nidbane exploit being 'intended' even though it's fairly obviously a bug- how is it fair for anyone who doesn't know about the bug? even if it is easy to avoid, you dont know when you die. You just wake up dead somehow.)

Idunno, maybe it's ignorable gripe from someone's who's quit, but i can't help but feel attached and having some hope for the game getting better- but i don't think that'll be possible without you two letting us in on the direction you actually want, and your perceived goals with these changes.
Highly opinionated, yet highly annoying. I have returned; and it is good to be back.
No story this world, but perhaps the next. For now, we remember the old ones.

could always make botting a permaban, and watch active players randomly every few days to watch if they are botting. Games like wow failed to stop bots because they don't care, and they give light punishements. Permaban !


Yeah pfft right, like that's ever going to happen.
Removing statcaps was THE worst move. I can understand it being done in a new world. But midworld? Gee, thanks, I've stopped producing quality stat foods weeks ago. You know why, jorb dearest? Because I was statcapped. Now I need to start all over again because on a whim and out of the blue you decided "fck it, let's jerk the ropes and watch them dance". "Seeing no PvP" or whatever is not even close to a justifying reason. But yeah, ofcourse, "eternal alpha" gives you carte-blanshe to do that.

As my polish neighbours say, smh. Just smh.

PS: I don't know why overtyped removed his post but I'm gonna quote it anyways.
