  1. Since Rick has been absent from here for quite a while, I'll jump in and offer an explanation. The "ban hammer" (i.e. the permanent banning of a/cs) was applied where players had been detected using illegal scripts (bots) on multiple occasions over the monitoring period. The use of such scripts is a direct violation of the Big Point DSO Terms and Conditions of Use which every player agreed to before signing up for a DSO a/c. Only players who have clearly breached the T&Cs of Use (e.g. bot use, abusing an exploit, a/c trading, etc) need to worry about this. A/C's are only ever permanently banned after a thorough investigation.

    I agree with Baragain, this sounds terrible as it will lead to superoptimized players. The difficulty in obtaining perfect gear means alternative pvp strategies that would be sub-optimal in the superoptimized world are workable.

    Your calm and reasoned response is very much appreciated. Thank you also for your time.

    Allogeneous, if I still have your attention and could beg a few more minutes of your time, Darwareen mentioned in an earlier post that there is no normal map in Teleportarium. At one point in time, a year.. or possibly longer ago, rumors were flying, even from those in the know, that a normal map was in the works. I play solo and have not been able to make it past the first barrier since this map was first introduced, so it's an important issue for me, and I'm sure many others. Can you comment on the possibility of a normal Teleportarium map in the future?

    I know, I'm supposed to merge all this stuff but could not find a merge button:).

    As a side note:
    The Guild, REVENGE, in Agathon, has turned Destructor into a right of passage for team players. As you know, normal mode does not exist for Teleportarium, only difficult mode is available. We can now run the entire dungeon several times an hour, using blue essences if we want. The groups are incredibly efficient to make this work so easily.

    Other groups can still grind it out with painfully huge costs, and there is a large supply of victims that go broke, and still get their collective behinds handed to them.

    DSO should be able to check the stats, to see how unpopular this dungeon is, but they probably don't have a clue on how to do that, or the inclination. Maybe they should.

    actually greg has played stalgard in the 144 patch twitch stream on feb 4 2015 to show us the glowing effects of items and said nothing is dropping here,lets go somewhere else. lol
    its not destructor,but its the map to get there,which they should have fix as well,but probably forgot.
    i agree they need to play and revamp those maps soon.

    Amazing things are happening: Several guild members are enjoying the game:
    Obstacles in the maps have been reduced. The drops seem to be at an acceptable mix and level, in the event and other maps too. It's been days with less lag for most of us. Someone even posted event dates in the DSO Calendar!

    Thanks. Hope you keep it up!

    Maybe add that (spears/lance) to the weapon list of Dragonknights and create new weapons for other classes also. Maybe Crossbow for ranger, 2H crystal for Spellweaver and Machine gun for dwarfs.

    yeah a multiple arrow shooting crossbow with revolving arrow dispenser, like what Van Helsinger has to kill vampires.

    and another class could be the mutant, with mutants you have so much scope for different skills,

    I wonder if this thread should be closed since it is not a dialogue. I see a lot of players investing their thoughts on this thread and it's like lighting candles in a church. Nobody is listening.

    Didn't Greg mention a new, combined thread in the 6/26 Twitch?
    It would merge Producer Dialog, Community Managers, etc. into 1 post for DSO honchos.
