    Nobody wants to do 6v6 as blue team is very likely to lose. Everybody does 5v5 instead, as the format allows one to chose all of their teammates and is symmetrical.

    Also, are you doing pvp with a group or solo signing up?

    Alone, very rarely in groups.

    Well, what might be happening then is that groups of 3, 4 and 5 are jumping over you in the queue. I started grouping with my guild mates in part because because it seems to shorten the wait time.

    Also, a group with familiarity with each other can outperform a higher ranked random team, especially since a group might trust each other and do flag handoffs for an advantage.

    Some of the top-ranked players can no longer get a match under any circumstances, solo or in groups.
    DSO punishes success to please the lesser players? Some forced retirement? Seems like it.

    Would you please work on those lags please? Players are being tossed around in some kind of zigzag motion all over the arena. I wish DSO all the best and that but if we cannot have a lag free competition in 5v5 or 6v6 then how on earth are we going to believe things will be better when you introduce 10v10 clan fights?

    true that.
    this is funny--a group of 5 of us entered 5v5 with 3 on the blue team,the "pvp system"thought it would be fair to change us to blue team to even it up,hahaha all 5 of us went to blue team,now the 3 are on red team,,what the..:rolleyes:

    To further expand my point, I understand that Agathon may be a small server, and some of the top players are very strong and it is or can be very annoying for other players to constantly lose/killed by one player. No one likes losing, but it doesn't justify excluding these top players from matches and rigging the system; even if a strong player is very active, it is very hard to rise on the leader board compared to a lower ranked inactive player. So why even create a leader board when players are disadvantaged and given unequal opportunities to participate in matches? The current design of the system really needs a rework or there might as well not be a leader board at all.
    This really discourages further investment, time or money in a character...because that equates to not playing pvp at all.

    leaderboard,funny waste of time,its only points u get,like ur rank,doesnt mean a thing.
    like the medals u get at the end of a match"unbeatable"ect,wonder how many i got of these that there is no record of it.
    leaderboard should be based on that or something else besides getting points anyway.
    oh and if u kill 60 ppl in 5v5,ur score is based mainly on captured flags,,just look when ur team has no flags n compare when u get flags,No flags= 300-500 points.lol

    not to mention those people with mentor bonus they just sit there do nothing and still get 2-4k per match

    and to the mods/dso we should have some sort of gem slot discounts or something i mean paying 14k 8k etc for 1-2 gem slot opening is rediculous.....

    Hi Greg.

    Any chance of having the developer include a minimum parameter to a map runs yield as well as the boss fight drops?

    For myself, I find having every 5th run (on average) while farming result in little or no improvement in drops to be extremely frustrating. Specifically, runs that do not yield even a lock-pick, just white and green gear drops, when I already have acquired Green or better gear drops from previous runs.

    While I realize I could teleport back to a vendor and sell off some inventory, I've noticed a trend that this course of action resets the next map run to even less drop quality.

    In these situations, I am left with a state of confusion, for if my efforts don't result in some kind of return, I really can't see a reason to continue. The incentive and purpose is gone at this point.

    @CM greg-o-lantern thank you for yesterday.

    BUT

    the compensation code we waited for 3 weeks was something a little better than this.
    Some people lost way more than 3 days of premium in those days...

    All I can tell you is that I heard only unhappy people yesterday night, all disappointed. Some people even closed the game and said goodbye

    @CM greg-o-lantern , yesterday you shared some insight about a new hotfix regarding the sargon drop.

    Can you aproximate a landing date so we can work on managing our in-game resources( Cursed Pearls and Remains) ?
    Right now for an estimation only 10-20% of the players will complete a set(Dragan Set) from which some of them had some upgradable items from events past. Without talking about twinkers, normal players will raise 10-12 levels in EXP while trying to complete the event(complete a set) which would destabilize their stats making older sets useless, so it would be really nice if we atleast could manage to build up 1 set(Sargon's).
    Thanks!

    Hey heroes - hope you guys are doing alright - its been a hell of a month #gregisfull o_O

    Thankfully soon I'll have a new colleague next to me and s/he and I will have a new
    workflow and strategy, so we can finally be closer to you guys. Its been a real ratrace.

    Please note that what ever I say here is also the position of the DSO Moderation team.
    Also, be reminded that features can change in date and point of release.

    @Master0fpuppets
    Travel Items for Gnob
    this item was only part of the Dragan Events, well, not the current one though.
    The Gnob Travel Map is bound to a quest and a quest was bound to a story of the Dragan events.
    I mean, simply speaking the designers simply would have to implement the item somewhere else.
    There are no plans on adding it to other events yet. Actually there are plans on renewing the offers of
    Gnob - expect a feedback thread anytime soon before the 30th of April.

    @Richardds
    Legendary Items in Chat
    The chat has to receive a rework first of all - where the players will be able to filter the chat
    to their liking - this should include languages and as well notifications - currently the chat
    is to primitive for that:) but its a nice idea and thanks for the compliments.

    @MegaNuker
    Guaranteed Drops for Bosses
    It has already been acknowledged as official issue that bosses (at least the big ones)
    should give a player a guaranteed drop of a certain rarity. Its what we call the "Boss Drop Rework/Iteration".
    Currently scheduled for release 152-53.

    Travelstone for the Halls of Dead
    I believe this has been done on purpose by the level design or game design, as you
    are not meant to reach it that easily. Then again, its a wish from your side, i can add it . but cant promise that
    it will get priority.

    Drop of Gilded Clovers
    Well, the gilded clovers are supposed to be super rare and hard to earn.
    But you will be able to earn more of them during the new Lost Truth event - but I doubt it will be more than 2-3 Gilded Clovers
    but there is another very useful reward - a universal gemstone. I'll talk more about it this thursday from 5pm onwards on www.twitch.tv/drakensang

    Daily Challenges
    I havent seen any new design for them yet but we are currently working through all the features.
    The friend invite system will definitely be reworked and the skill user interface. Perhaps afterwards event the daily challenges.

    Item Levels higher than level 50
    You will be able to upgrade items until level 55 once Lor'Tac is out;)

    @Teleportist
    Item Enchantments better on workbench or drop
    There is no difference - the enchantments are as random as the ones you would find on a weapon that dropped from a monster.

    Crafting Cheaper
    Crafting is not supposed to be your first source were you would get amazing weapons.
    It used to be this way but the team really wants to put emphasis on slaying monsters rather then doing mathematics
    on the workbench. That being said, there are plans to make crafting cheaper - though only ideas, nothing concrete yet.

    Selling in the (Hotkey: T) Shop
    Ill ask about it - i mean it seems like an OK idea - but yeah, you can imagine that it would make some vendors in the cities
    obsolete. Dracania might suffer from an economic depression^^
    It is rarely that you will find RPGs where you can sell on the go - at least the ones I played (not gonna mention them:p @Mal3ficent will edit me again:( ) you cannot do that either - unless you find a vendor somewhere on the map by accident.


    @XAncientPowerX :
    New Bonus Code
    thats sad to hear, believe me, it is frustrating to hear all these complains - but at the end of the day - the show must go on.
    I mean, yeah there was a mistake with the bonus code. Am I quitting my job because of it? Nope - I'll calm down and find a solution.
    FYI: there will be a new bonus code for you during the twitch live stream on www.twitch.tv/drakensang on 30th of April.
    But of course I'll add it to the forum as well.

    @fourtwenty68
    You are talking about the weapon set of Sargon - afaik - the equipment (armor) set was available in the Ghastly grave of Castle Ravencaw.
