    I suggest they read the book Good to Great.

    Haruki, kick those people in the knee and get those realm frag drops increased next patch, please. I haven't seen this level of farming required since 2012. Not all of us play 5+ hours a day for years and have them stock piled.

    My char was fine tunned to kill fast ,its the only thing that work in the 95% DSo situation,so strategic planing ,read the foruns ,changes etc, you need stay ahead of things that will happen.

    That was planned 3 months earlier for the new events.

    I heard that prices of entrances goes to 7 to 10, so I bought at 7 fragments

    Btw its just a pile of trash now because they ¨$%#$#$!!!!! full moon and new moon.

    Several times a week I see the same ad for an ander sale: 30% off, a special one-time offer!
    If you see the same offer over a period of weeks and months, how is it special, and how is it a one-time offer?
    Duh, maybe it's a con.

    In english a one time offer can mean that, once purchased, you can no longer purchase it...

    Maybe it's a way to coax you into buying Andermant when they notice you have not done so after a period of time. But they forgot that it is a 1-time offer. I don't know, but I am getting the same popup.

    The Winter Calendar was a nice touch. It was good to see some faces around your office.

    Interesting things are going on in the mini event.
    Elites with 3 buffs only drop purple items. legendary minions require legendary drops.
    Kranparus can summon a room full of minions, can't even see him, he's so covered up. The whole team dies. Mass death is not good for morale.
    Lag eating up graphics. No poison timer. Invisible attacks. Invisible obstacles. No buenos.

    Supposedly the map is supposed to be Fatal, it just seems to be Fatal without the difficulty. The drops are improved quality. Andermant drops in 35-37, copper can drop up to 2-3 silver and anecdotal evidence suggests the item enchantments are Fatal quality.
    That is why solo is so much better if you can handle it or duo/trio if solo is off the table.

    All in all, this is actually the easiest one yet. I can do one full run every 10 min. Doing a boss only run can be done in as little as 6-7.

    After watching your Merry Christmas office video I kinda got an idea about the flow and work of your office and realized why things are often the way they are. No teamwork. I envision it looks like this. A programmer has an idea that will improve the game and says "boss im'a tackle this here thing." Boss says that sounds really cool and everyone at the table says ya sweet Homey. So he dives right in, slicing code, copy and paste, revision revision revision and Vuala! He may run into a problem where he has one of the other programmers come over and see why it gets stuck or wont execute but generally it is a solo gig. Upload for next release, tell CM's to pimp it in patch notes and off it goes. Next meeting, new pitch, new idea to improve the game.

    UH OH! Homey, your code is messed up. I know i'm working on it. NO! not the new release stuff, the stuff you made last time. OH NO! But I'm working on the stuff for the new release I don't have time to fix it or ill miss my deadline. But, no one else knows what you did, it'll have to be you to fix it, we are lost looking at your stuff. OK, but it'll have to wait till the release after. UH OH! Homey the feedback says they don't like what you did the release before last time, you need to change it. What? What didn't they like about it? IDK, you'll have to go look at the forums. I can't I have to get this new thing done, fix the last thing when I'm done and then Id have to go see what they dislike. Can you go look for me? No way Homey, I don't even know how that feature is supposed to work, and I'm supposed to be looking at something called a system that no one seems to no how it got into the game since no programmers will claim it. Waaa Waaa Waaa.

    No teamwork. Recheck your workflows, reviews, and quality assurance. NO programmer should be an island. If QA's job is to make sure it works like the programmer said it should, then they are not doing their job. They should be gate keepers for the game, and have stamps that say, REDO Nonfunctional, REDO this is DUMB, REDO No one wants it.

    Could be interesting to know if they know any Project Release Management software, and what kind of tracking method they adopt.

    Although I can imagine your scenario really mirrors the situation in BP's offices I find it funny to deduce something like that from a staged video xD

    But yes, I really wonder what the job description of a QA at BP looks like.

    About the latest Dev Diaries/Xmas video...

    At the beginning these guys should not pretend to play the game, because it looks pathetic.
    Why Haruki have the client open? Make the lead manager play it...
    The QA is definitely looks like "I don't care type", specially the second guy and the first is just following orders. No QA whatsoever.
    But the new guy, Nicholas... He said he is Game Designer working for a short while. He seems more like a gamer because he is young.
    While he might give some hope, his true nature will be shown after few updates. As he said he is working on HUD locking and appearance switching feature. If we see quality work in these features, then DSO might start to have some more complex and fun mechanics.

    I believe in you Nicholas. DO NOT DISAPPOINT US !

    Lots of players will be stuck with Phestos Coins and no way to use them.
    How about buying them back from us? There must be some coin collectors in Dracania somewhere. 1:1:phestos:Gold. Maybe Gnob would give us draken.

    Who thought it was a good idea to make essences usable on other players? This has really ruined the open pvp experience for me, as if the damage mitigation wasn't bad enough already now with 20k hp and 6k armour I get killed in a number of seconds from other players with now all people in the level 45 to 50 arena using essences, with their excuse being 'I use it because everyone else is using it'. The royal arena in kingshill used to be a place to show off how strong you were, challenge people to 1v1's, wait for another 5v5 or just simply chat to your friends. Can you please just change this back, being a ranger with high damage I get accused of using essence multiple times when I step into the arena and then everyone uses essence to kill me in one hit unfairly regardless of the now meaning-less pvp rank.
