    Wouldnt that be the whole point behind introducing new mechanics to try and aid player retention?! ... such as the one being discussed.

    Or maybe its best to focus on maintaining a tiny player base and your "problem" of not getting enough Q5 eyes!

    Both would be fine. :)

    When you place a word in speach marks, when it is not direct speach, it indicates sarcasm.

    As in you deny this a problem.

    Just a headz up for you, grimmy.

    Good job posting a picture though! One of your more high brow, engaging posts to date. :)

    Sad truth is that right now, it isn't a problem, unless they have a way of getting new players to try the game other than the community getting their friends to try it. So yes, I was being sarcastic in that way.

    Pictures say more than the words required to say the same thing sometimes.

    If that picture says more than you are able to convey in a sentence, its time to go back to night school.

    I was tempted to post back a picture of a brick wall - but I didnt want to test your pea too much.

    It was easier than sinking to your level with your passive aggressive posts

    Say what you mean boy

    There will be more risk to being red and grey as you forfeit the partial loot benefits of being blue. Altogether the changes coming in this update will result in a very different environment on the mainland related to alignment, especially in humanlands. Looking at individual features in a vacuum with current other game mechanics in mind is going to miss the overall impact. I recommend to keep an open mind and reserve judgment till we get it on PTS for public play testing.

    We're going to look at tweaks and minor changes if needed before and after these features hit the live servers. The combined changes to new PvP flags, loot and incapacitate changes on the new mainland lawful zones is going to drastically improve new and casual players game experience.

    Every Change

    Community: This is gonna probably be bad.
    BPG: Listen, we know better than you, we played the game in 2010.
    Community: But it won't work like you think it will in game.
    BPG: Listen, we know better than you, we theory crafted really hard.
    Community: Its gonna suck.
    BPG (Kilrain): You guys are dumb and don't get it.
    Game: Dies.

    Swing and a miss. All that needed to be done was let blue players keep paper Doll and maybe mount on death in lawful lands. That's literally it.

    Yeah but that's all you needed. This whole mugging thing and tiered dropping is just over complecating things and is just another system that people need to learn and will probably be abused somehow too.

    100% this shit will put in another dupe

    tbh they probably still have dupes in the game that people use slowly to avoid getting caught. They had to go through by hand when people got reported to catch people abusing stat pots, there are people outside of my clan that used them and didn't get caught so they don't have a system to flag or catch this shit.
