    That may be.... but that just reinforces my thinking ... see it doesn't matter if im west coast, pinging an east coast server, or they are east pinging a server on west coast..,, it would still create considerable lag for all ... in a game that is all ready laggy enough. To do anything that would make it worse would be a mistake IMHO. and would kill the game for many people.

    What about being able to tick a box so that your character only takes part in battles where the teams are composed of random groups?
    That way players can choose whether to group and battle against other organised teams, or fight in teams of random players against other teams of random players.

    This would encourage more arena pvp. at some points in the night, it seems like agathon sometimes turns into the same grouped team of 5 dominating unbalanced 5v5 matches, and once that dominant grouped eam wins a flag, somebody invariably quits on the losing side, making it a 5v4...

    If DSO implements this guild battles thing, I would prefer holding the line at 50 members. Others have pointed out the dangers of megaguilds and guild size restrictions would hold the line against that danger.

  6. A wee interjection at this point... This is a thread set aside for the players to have direct two-way communication with the producer. Rick has been rather tolerant of some of the rude/disrespectful posts in there. I will not be so lenient. Any more attempts at character assassination, harassment or just outright rudeness, and the offending posters will be rewarded with a nice long vacation.

    By all means, ask pointed questions. Complain even. But keep it civil.

    This point being the lag would be the same if a Tegan vrs Tegan play or Agathon vrs Tegan pvp would be the same lag as pvp on that server. There would be no additional advantages for location that does not already exist.

    Hello Rick,

    many thanks for your efforts that you communicate with us as the Producer.
    I saw many requests to increase droprates (parallel worlds, jesters).
    I will not be popular here but I think the droprates are fine, maybe to get special items at Jesters seems to be expensive but this is also OK. This can ensure a long way income to the company and can keep the game alive as if the players would get everyting quickly, there would be no challenge anymore and they would stop playing. This current tuning keep the community together, they go farm pvp/pve together playing long hours, etc. There may be some useful advices to have similar droprates at parallel words as it is now in Q6 map2 so the players could farm more on different maps, too without getting less benefits. I hope this will be valid for the new parallel worlds, too and we will not return only to q6 m2 after a month after the content update.

    Keep up the good work, please also take care about the quick bug fixes and stable servers :)

    I support what you have said as a general position and don't argue at all with your points, they are valid. I would like to also further support your point about equalizing drops in PW's. The reason HOD(Q6m2) is the place to go, is because of the higher than average drop rate and guaranteed exo items. Because it is out of sync with other maps, it has become the default farming location which has lead to tedium. When the choice is to do HOD for the 1000th time or to go to a different place simply because your eyes are bleeding from all the HOD runs, even though you know the drops will be lower, you have been given a faulty choice. All mini bosses in PW's should drop pink items or higher, it is not a game crushing "you're making it too easy" change. Just think of how much the community as a whole would benefit if all those multi-year 45's were willing to do other PW's to garner GOP and the rare useful item, and in the process assist developing toons. We should never have to choose between productive tedium, and non-productive enjoyment. They are not mutually exclusive.

    +1 to that....

    I can sit in Watery Grave and see plenty of groups heading off to HOD (because it is the best map for farming) but will rarely if ever see a group forming for Grimm or Cata/Crypt. Unless you are working the quest, there is no reason to do either of those maps.

    Same goes for the big bosses, so I rarely see anyone grouping for them either.. Just not worth the effort or time with the possible rewards.

    Now I know that I am far from the only one that has asked repeatedly (see post #1 in this thread) about any chance that the dev's might one day consider adding some little tidbit of reward for the mind numbing grind, but they have purposely ignored those questions over and over again...

    Of course it could be said that their avoidance to those questions is their answer.....

    also pertaining to level 50 gear...will there be level 50 Weapons at the End of Time?

    btw i also think unique gear from very hard or very time consuming quests should have fixed specifications not variable....same specs for everyone at the same level

    I thought EoT was currently graded to your level (i.e., if you turn in the quest at level 36, you get a level 36 weapon), and thus, it doesn't seem all that difficult to grade the base stats up to level 50 (as the weapon is one of those fixed percentage range weapons).

    What they really should do, though, is make it a decent weapon and not the melt trash it is currently. Perhaps it should be considered the 6th part of ammon's gear with a corresponding using 6th gear set bonus line (perhaps 10 or 15% increased damage). Such an expansion would make using ammon's + EoT useful, and encourage PW questing.

    OK .. So why is my lag so bad when i play on agathon .... cant pvp there because like I stated .. its like watching an old fashioned stop motion movie. Maybe thtas the way you like your games to run... but not me. If they combine the servers... and the lag increases any more than it already is ... simply put.. the game will be unplyable.
    Get it now???

    There are many factions that cause what you described. First off Agathon does have more players on it. The time you tried might have been when they where have issues with only the Agathon server. If the have a separate server for pvp the the lag might even be non existent due to the fact players are not pve on that server. I have an itching idea that some server machines might have threads that host both Agathon and Tegan but that is only me.

    Is two way discussion only available on saturday ?
    Twitch: it would be possible to place the logo animation at the end (instead of beginning) , so that youtube can provide closed captioning ?
    Emotes: let emote work like skills, you unlock them by collecting the corresponding item then the item is destroyed but you can use the emote from menu/window
    Since the game also need Consumables for monetization, these will play the animation without unlocking the ability

    What exactly are the buffs skills that Ranger has? Spellweaver since long time has same HP as a Ranger and same armor. OP skills, spamming all the time WITHOUT using mana, compare to the Ranger who needs concentration all the time! Be real here.. Rangers are lower on the rank than spellweavers. Plus the eagle, you move and its gone.. We pray to hit someone...What kills you? the walking to avoid eagle?

    PS: i agree with what you say for the DKs.

    Spellweavers has same HP and armor like Rangers...
    If you want to have DKs life, then make a DK and play...

    Its so obvious that you doesnt know how squishy a spellweaver it is.:(
    Secondly take a look at those uniques ( yachaks vs roshan ), how unbalanced it is.:confused:
    Blessed with 4 x damage and chances to score a crit is even higher than a mage with fireballs.:mad:
    Their eagles kill more people than lightning strike and even their wolves got tons of resistance, sounds really funny:D
    And you sounds so simple like your eagle never hits a single opponent before o_O
    Ask majority to cast a vote whether a ranger is more potent or a spellweaver.
    Its just plain useless to waste time on the topic again
    As for Dks they are almost invincible and they are made for noobs:p

    No they don't.
    this thread is questions for rick.
    if everybody comes in here just to poke at our questions,then how is rick suppose to get to all of our questions having to filter through such a mess.
    this is not General forum.
    and its steam mechs that are same as SW,notice the SM SW combined in most gear on wiki.thats why they are working on SM's.
    also i do play a DK and Ranger as well,that does not help SW's at all.
    they need to work on SW also.
