I can stick around on the forums but I don't think I'll ever play the game. Too busy these days. Although the coronavirus is slowing business down, it's just temporary.

How's everyone btw? Any major changes? Anyone got married, changed jobs, moved to a different country or got a sex change operation?

Would be nice to catch up with old friends, even though I got some people as Facebook friends but barely ever message each other. Forum is still th best Smile

Such a list will never be created, mainly for 2 reasons.

1. There's like 500000 combinations of all items in the game, good luck making one.
2. Such list would be abused the other way. Someone will bid the maximum amount and report everyone who outbids him for pushing.

ofc, there are some who invite because they dont want the game to die. too few thou.
Personally, i think a weekly Lgo boost per active player? or some small stones? idk. normally when i offer amount, i get shot down..

Now just make it that if a person you invited invites another person you get another boost. Voila, a pyramid scheme Tongue

alyat, do you know the difference between should and must? Please double check that before you say that something's wrong.

If you throw a coin up a billion times there's a chance that you'll get a billion tails.
There's no such thing as "Oh, it's a head. The next one must be tails.". It's always "Oh, it's a head. There's a 50% chance the next one will be tails.".
It's head again? Repeat "Oh, it's a head. There's a 50% chance the next one will be tails."

This always makes me extremely angry. Nowhere in the description of premium account is stated that you have better chances than other players. You only get a couple of extra opportunities that can still go wrong.

Never, ever mention the fact that you're paying for premium account. There's a list of features on the premium account page and complain only if something's different than on the list. In every single other case, without exceptions, premium account has nothing to do with it and it never will.

Not really market tactics.

From what I see, hundreds of stones are removed from the game, wasted on dupe items that pretty much never had a seller. And they're getting the seller of the actual non-dupe item in trouble for pushing.

Indeed, should be a bannable offence.

They need a reason to make a new server. And "Why not?" is not a viable answer.
And they never left you hanging. The answer has always been the same and they're just tired of copy+paste.

P.S. nowhere in the description of premium account is a clause that obligates the Dev Team to make a new server, so could you please stop using that as an argument? It's just infuriating.

I can see a couple of problems.

First, reading the report would take a couple of weeks due to the amount of people participating and unless they kill the monster in the first round, you might never be able to read them all.

Secondly, it would cause enormous lags. Imagine, everyone's waiting with anticipation for the end of the expo, open the report within 5-10 seconds from the end and the server must make all the calculations, send the report and let everyone open the report at the same time, all within 5 seconds.

And last thing, experience based on damage or level? With that amount of participants would make damage based rewards too overpowered for the top players while level based would mean both nothing for the top and nothing for the bottom of the rankings list.

This idea really needs a lot of tweaking before it's even possible to maybe think about starting to debate the possibility of implementing some of it.

It's actually a very bad idea.

First of all, the rules.
You'd have to choose the main language for the server and enforce it to all communications. Otherwise you'd find things like Ethiopians getting messages in Tagalog, to resolve the dispute you'd have to hire two translators.

I'm not sure, but the language seems to be hard coded into servers of different nationalities. I'm sure many of you clicked a link to a message from a polish server. Even something as simple as getting stones for advancing a level is in the language of the server and would be difficult to translate for someone who has never played the game and just clicks the link off some other forum.

And last thing,
If you want a new server, invite new people to the current ones, advertise as much as possible, do your best. Don't expect someone else to do things for you.
Running a server that hasn't got enough people is costly so the Dev team really needs a good reason.

I believe I already said that making a new server just for existing players will never work. The game needs new players, not just new accounts.
If they want to use the english servers to learn/practice their english skills then they don't need a new server, they can register and talk with people on one of the old ones.

Bad idea.

A new server starts.
Someone drops a Perfect AK-47.
Can't sell on the server for much because it's too early for anyone to have that kind of money.
You auction it between servers and get huge amount of PoP, impossible to gain through regular means.

Not to mention that it opens a huge back door for pushing.
Let's say you start a new account, drop a small, crappy, insignificant item.
You auction it.
You buy it with an account on another server for a small, crappy and insignificant price.
Even though it's not pushing you do get a constant income of PoP since you have no problem with finding a buyer for the crappiest of crappy items.
Thread: Attack on guard time?// Item not taken from attack?

Replies: 8

05-11-2013 21:18 Forum: Bugs and problems

All the calculations on the server are made when you make an action. If you ambush someone and log out or go afk, the attack ends and the report is "hanging" in the air. If you or the one you attacked logs in or does any action the report is calculated based on the statistics at the time of the action.

So technically if you ambush some inactive player now, don't do anything for a week and then log in, the ambush will take place with the statistics of a week later than the ambush should've taken place.

Hope this is a better explanation.

WARNING! The game system counts the chance of success when you do something on your account, e.g. if you remain inactive during a caravan then the chance of success will be counted according to your parameters at the time of your next action.

This applies to everything that requires calculations, sieges, quests, expos, koths, arenas, everything.

I don't know why he attacked you during guard time, but I know why he didn't take your item.

The first person to do an action makes the stuff happen. So you haven't opened anything, Dreath didn't either, but one of your expo team members did. That one triggered first and used up your item.

If not then something's wrong with the system Tongue

So to be able to move one square every now an then you want to give 2 people the power to move any square to any player within the clan at any time of the day and night without asking for permission and no cooldown period.

I can already see the abuse by replacing CA ban with square removal.

Don't count on people from other servers, it'll just be temporary. 90% of people who come are losers who failed on other servers, will fail on the new one leaving it with hundreds of inactive accounts in less than a month from start. The Dev Team knows that and that's why they're not starting a new server.

They might start a new one if they'll see a real increase in users, not in accounts. Asking for a new server from current users on the forums will never work and such threads are usually ignored.

I just can't post without commenting the current ideas Tongue

Final fantasy is a bad idea. Actually any japanese virtual/animated production as a movie is a bad idea.
Fallout would definitely fill the cinemas quickly.
Assassin's creed would end up the same as Prince of Persia, I wouldn't want to see that.
I can't even imagine GTA being made into a movie. No screenwriter would even think about this, main plot too shallow in my opinion. It would end up as a low-budget production at most, like Postal.
Master Of Orion is an idea I definitely like Wink

What I'd like to see made into a movie is Metro 2033 and Warcraft.

Also from the games that already made it to the cinema screen I just love Dune Big Grin

The buyer doesn't want to pay the price he offered and wants to pay the smallest bid.
