  • It's perfectly acceptable if they leave things just as they are right now. I'll patiently wait and watch. Who knows, maybe pop will start making a significant climb again
  • As i stated. i don't agree with that opinion. Several others do not agree. Thats the great thing about free market. No one is forced to play something. You like it, you play, you don't, you play somewhere else. Its simple. In the end i hope e…
  • I'll hit you up Phat, but my account expires again next week. Nothing enticing enough to keep me around for now. As i stated, i will cruise the boards when i can and when it looks interesting or when i see changes that appeal to me
  • I disagree @Tyrantanic , but you're entitled to your opinion as i am entitled to mine. You're not gonna change my mind, and im sure i wont change yours. I've also read your take on why timers won't work. My take is directly in objection to yours,…
  • I'll keep my hopes up and my fingers crossed. I did re-up this last month, but after logging in @ 5 times i chalked it up to wasted money for the time being. Each night i did log in , it was @ 8:30-9pm EST. Each of those nights there were 10-20 m…
  • Realm timers do work, not sure why they are adamantly against it. It is what it is though. I will keep re-upping every other month or so in hopes that pop will rebound. I think BS is doing the best BS can do.
  • loving the assist macro stickynote @Siambra . A true DAoC alum
  • It definitely made it tougher after the recent patches. If i were to make a new character today, i wouldnt attempt to finish my CL's by quest. I'd patiently wait until i got into an OW run or Cursed run. I'd advise the same to new players if they…

  • I think the situation has resolved itself for the most part. The community has managed itself. What ive seen in the last few weeks is this. The US primetime (mid) bg is non-existent (as a bg). We run several groups with others tagging along if…
  • Pretty much my point.

  • Window/group/solos wasnt the issue when i atttempted. It was coordination. Everything nowadays leads back to community. If people want to follow they will. If people all want to get into one discord or chat program they will..... or they won't. …
  • The more i think about it, i don't see a way around it. It IS completely community driven. Unless you set rules sustained by BS, then the community does have complete control. Want to win?, flip realms to the higher bg realm and overrun and domin…

  • Hahha.. that works... Thanks Phat. I'm retiring soon too. sometime in the next 15 years
  • I guess ultimately that is an update. For an 18 year old game maybe thats good enough.
  • I can go along with the seasonal activities not requiring too much in terms of resources. Everything comes back to transparency for me though. The forums are inundated with "what is the plan"? questions. Instead of a response, we get "Hey we are …
  • Your guess is as good as mine :-)

  • Sorry to see you go @Realfinewine . Jen and i were discussing this recently. I'm afraid a lot will be heading that way when subs are up. Currently its play until you're fed up then head on over.

  • We've tried to a point with EJ on mid. No one wants the hassle though. The hassle of leading. The hassle of trying to coordinate 4+ groups of people in a voice chat (too much chatter and overtalking). The hassle of independent groups roaming of…
  • I can totally agree with you there Tald. To each his own. If you like being zerged down, enjoy. We have "another" option currently, as judging by the looks of the population, most are taking advantage of it. In the end.. do what you enjoy. If a…

  • Breaking the limitation of plat on a character. Great idea that has been discussed many times. I think i've seen the reasoning behind why it cant be done.... but i also wonder if people are taking notes. I'd lmao if i saw this implemented somewhe…
  • Hunters were a great example. People complained that they were over the top. They changed them. Those same people then complained .... "where did all the mid hunters go that we used to fight"... or.. "now hunters group up and zerg us down". X wa…
  • Numbers are definitely not subjective. Numbers equate fun.
  • I'll defend the run to an extent. I like realm timers.... i dont like depending on others or the community to do the right thing :-) + 1 for me. No profound gear creap, +2. MMORPG (Massive) population +3. All things that have been suggested. …

  • I have been playing day to day (up until this week). Guild groups. It was a welcome sight to see @Beetleguisse start up the hib bg and provide more action. Timing sucked though. Now hib has US prime bg and he has no one to fight. I will say i…
  • That may take a wait and see attitude. If subs fall drastically, then they won't be able to drop the price. Im sure there has to be a bottom line for overhead.
  • Yes and no Tald. I have been on all realms and had the same happen. Not through the eyes of midgard only. A zerg is a zerg is a zerg. Options are there. Period. As far as perspective goes, you're entitled to yours. Game bugs and crashes are a…
  • Theres always an X to a Y or a Y to a Z though @RonELuvv . I have been running regularly with Jen for several months now. Typically anywhere between an 8 man to 3 fg. And typically we try to keep it close to what made it competitive vs the other …
  • Transparency ideas. 1. Bug tracking system (i.e. Jordheim crash bug. - potential fix time vs the problem. "We don't know how to fix it" would be an acceptable answer, even though it would be unpopular. "Yup, we are working on it".. for 3 year…
  • Yeah, the pig-pen detour is "better" but i still crash 70% of the time in Jord no matter what path i take. I avoid Jord like the plague. One crash per night is my limit now... after that i play somewhere else.
  • There are a lot of things that several people have asked for, for a long time. Several posts related to that. You're not gonna please everyone, and for each one you do please, youre gonna piss of the same number by making the changes. Its not har…

  • Its the difference in transparency. I enjoy the transparency the other offers. I enjoy the transparency of seeing peoples named banned who continuously slaughter the rules. I said i'd never go back to something like Vold was, but its appealing.…
  • She blames me getting stuck on my Troll sized hips... how rude
  • I can't disagree with you completely @RonELuvv ., but you and i both know the direction Vold 1.0 took. It became a "this is our ball, just be glad we're letting you play with it" scenario. I see some of the same attitude here. The problem is now …
  • Its more of the snowball affect @RonELuvv . We've been mainly runnin 8 or 16 or some variation in between. Thats usually fine even when the bgs are rolling because the 8's or 16s or vairation we've been fighting provides action. Both of the usual…
  • We had a lot of fun last night. Sat night not so much. Several logged and hit up the flaming bird as well. Its the norm now. Lopsided fights will promote a lot more of that im afraid. Its a hard call. People will flock there for now. Getting …
  • Options are there that were not there earlier this year. Just accept it. And the numbers that that option brings to the table are what most people crave. Each one it picks up means further decline to this one. I think in the end the other will fo…
