July Conference with Brad

Post  uebersoldat on Wed Jul 28, 2010 3:23 pm

Well the conference has come and gone and for the most part it was upbeat. No whining (not too much) and here are some of the high points:

- Brad will be revamping the newbie zone, no details as to how he will do this yet.

- Though Brad did not want to get rid of the upsells to the account (UGH, etc) He did state that he might roll smaller quirks into the Silver Plan as well as looking into adding more value to the upsells to justify the costs these days.

- Nameless Lands has been tweaked by Omni to discourage safe zone exploits.

- Mega lairs and events should start to happen more often. Brad was very open to this.

- Facebook adverts, a Java based Drakkar client and even hints at a new Drakkar game are in the works.

Development on Drakkar must have a direction, and that is what Brad was trying to discern from last nights conference. As of right now he seems to be playing in the end-game corner and doesn't think there needs to be much done to the existing campaigns unfortunately aside from revamping the newbie area.

If anyone knows of anything I missed (probably quite a bit) let me know. I have the latter half of the conference I will post tonight. Does anyone have the first half?

Unfortunately, I didn't capture the beginning of the conference, but it was pretty boilerplate. Hi, here we all are, how are you, etc. Eventually it wandered off into some really odd area. For example, I have no clue as to what "boxing" an account (or character, or whatever) might be.

The whining didn't start until today, and gracious sakes but it did really take over the Lobby.

<NOTE:Text above this was truncated to conserve memory>
rease the people you could reach out to
PossessedAxe: other mmos dont have command buffers
PossessedAxe: lol
brad: yeah, we do facebook development at work, just need to get the game browser-running
Civon: I remember playing a java driven drakkar ages ago
scyrac: One suggestion: We need to find a way to tie in older high end players to newbies. Newbies seem isolated and ignored when they enter game. I found a newbie 2 weeks old who knew nothing and was nearly ready to leave til I spent some time with him.
brad: wasn't java driven civon.. it was actually a web plugin i wrote
PossessedAxe: did a large conversation come up over checks?
merlin: barb? im talking about soloing tort with 6 ments haha
PossessedAxe: or did that question never get asked
PossessedAxe: i really think that check npcs need to be removed altogether
PossessedAxe: and checks need to be cashed via bankers
merlin: clever macros enable people to do things you didnt think possible
Tanuvien: Will this chat session be posted on the forums? I didnt get to see all the questions/answers.
PossessedAxe: coin in drak *****. shouldnt be that way..
merlin: that doesnt make them cheaters, just better players making more of what they have.
brad: haha hopefully *THIS* part of the chat WONT
PossessedAxe: i just dont understand why some random dude up in some secret building is dealing with such large amounts of money and the bankers are having problems dealign with 500k
brad: cause i'm not beign real professional right now
Tanuvien: well, just the professional part brad Smile
merlin: the bankers will deal with more if you tell them.
Omni: its ok brad, Mars will go light on the blackmail...
PossessedAxe: yeah in scenarios that have higher coin allotmens
Rakasha: that's the way the us financial system works!
PossessedAxe: or you have quirks that take forever
Quaternion: no quirks
merlin: nope in nork too Smile
PossessedAxe: either way, it's a pain in the rear
merlin: and quirks not needed.
PossessedAxe: right.. but you can hold 1m coin
PossessedAxe: so you're still running back in forth
PossessedAxe: or using checks
Quaternion: and all this about quirks being bad, i seem to have maxed quirks very easily
PossessedAxe: LOL
tirith: well.. we really need to see java drak get going and tie it into facebook.. and i think that could do more
PossessedAxe: are you ever offline though? Razz
Quaternion: infact i find it annoying i have nothing to spend them on
merlin: dude im not going into details, but your constant moaning when someone has the advantage is growing old.
tirith: than paying for advertising could do
merlin: sorry, im tired and should have gone to bed 2 hours ago.
tirith: i agree. quirks arent bad
brad: yes tirith, were you the one i chatted with a while ago about the HTML app?
Cort: heh.. do we really want drak filled with people who use face book ?
PossessedAxe: i'm really talking about convinience i don't know why we're talking about quirks
tirith: I believe so brad
PossessedAxe: i'm saying, make bankers deal with checks
tirith: quirks used to have a max limit you could gain
PossessedAxe: there's no reason for them not to except forcing you to constantly run between scenarios
PossessedAxe: aka, stupid.
tirith: not sure why the max was removed
brad: its not tirith, its just so high as you level up
brad: i scaled it too much on each level
uebersoldat: drak fb group is a great way to get older players back...brad...have you seen it?
Quaternion: back to tiriths point, i seriously think with java drak and small investiment in facebook advertising could bring in hundreds mroe players
Quaternion: people on facebook play any old rubbish
merlin: ok guys good night, please post any good comments to forums
merlin: and thumbs up for facebookers, they play any old shite
tirith: i mean.. if i could connect drakkar to facebook.. i would send wall posts all the time
tirith: ive got lots of friends added just through game apps
Tanuvien: FB games are free
Drewdelay2: 1 tv advertisement about this being a rpg for 'thinkers' and we will have all kindsa new players i think Smile
merlin: brad, give us an xml api feed and facebook will take off Smile
Quaternion: drak is free
tirith: fb games also have pay options
Quaternion: upto a point
brad: tirith.. ya know
brad: maybe we can do it a diff way
Omni: no reason they cannot play alt 1 free
Tanuvien: oh, didnt know that tirith. sorry. Smile
Quaternion: exactly
brad: i can make a facebook app that just
brad: hmm
brad: wait
uebersoldat: i've actually researched the FB adverts...you pay a set amount, or you pay as the click roll in
brad: it doesnt have to be the game, it could be something that just displayed and talked to the server
Omni: he's thinking.. run!
brad: ya know, let me look into that
PossessedAxe: has nork dungeon and you can transfer your crit
PossessedAxe: over to a live acct Razz
merlin: exactly!
Quaternion: brad i think to make it really work would need to be game
merlin: you could do quirk gains via fb Smile
PossessedAxe: for a simple fee of FIVE MILLION DOLLARS
tirith: right
Quaternion: people have low attention spans if they cant click and play straight away it wont work
tirith: yeah
tirith: it will need to load up in the browser for facebook gamers to really click to this game
Quaternion: so hence java drak
Quaternion: as an applet
tirith: people are less inclined to download things nowadays
brad: Sure quat, but i'm talking about for existing players to get accomplishments INTO facebook status messages
merlin: so their friends see and also sign up
Quaternion: ah
tirith: honestly.. id rather have drak on my computer.. instead of playing in a browser
tirith: but if it helps bring in more gamers.. im all for it
merlin: chances they have like minded friends
brad: have to start somewhere.. its either wait and do nothing until some mythical time when there is a facbook version, or do something doable in the interim
merlin: brad, now your thinking like an advertiser
Quaternion: but thing with java is its simple to compile applet and stand alone app
merlin: get an API up and running so i can blog my critters stats on facebook and its instant advertising.
Quaternion: so both options would be availible
scyrac: T Facebook idea is solid. Need to complette new player tutorial in concert with it asap.
brad: quaternion, full bore development cycle for a java app by a professional company would be 6 months min
tirith: right
Omni: Need to start tracking all quests going forward and make them reportable. Both to facebook and the new java FE
merlin: 6 months and 20 thousand dollars
tirith: i think you should get into immediate revamping of the nork school
Quaternion: yes and for that 20 thousand u woul dmake it back
brad: java doesnt make things magically, its just a programming language
Quaternion: risk reward
Quaternion: yes i know, i do programme in it
Drewdelay2: facebook not even that cool, will be something else soon <g>
brad: quat, if i had 20k to spend.. haha
Quaternion: im just exhaulting its virtues
brad: wouldnt be 20k anyway, i priced it, its about 50
Tanuvien: Mars will loan it to you Brad. Smile
brad: nah, my arms are broken already from the last time i took a loan from him
tirith: lol
Tanuvien: hehehe
Quaternion: ok i dont know but i wonder how much those games far worse than drak bring in
Quaternion: i bet they make a 20k investment worth it
tirith: seriously.. like these things have pictures and words and people buy points to buy more pictures
Ironstrike: stupid farms
Tanuvien: Hey Brad ... you should list who the 10 longest players that are currently active. Would be curious ...
Rakasha: start hitting up the microloan sites
tirith: 5.00 a month is cheap and surely would be a big hit on facebook.. i hope anyways lol
scyrac: Hey my wife has 5 farms! (eg)
tirith: for the sake of drakkars future
Ironstrike: so does mine 8(
Drewdelay2: ill bet against facebook
Quaternion: anyway has tnem had a look at code
Drewdelay2: 1 tv advertisement will do more
Civon: umm
Rakasha: the 10 longest players currently active may not want to be listed
Quaternion: what does he reckon of making a full blown version?
merlin: seriously brad, develope some sort of api and the players will probably do the rest for you.
Civon: I saw an actual TV ad recently for a facebook game
Civon: they are making cold hard cash to do that
merlin: api works for its self thats why most companys offer it for free as an extension so the main product
Drewdelay2: gets responses, everyone watches tv
Drewdelay2: and u what they see ?
Drewdelay2: wow :/
Drewdelay2: cant have that ne more
scyrac: I am a manufacturer and can tell you the net brings in far more for me than TV.
merlin: i saw starcarft 2 advertised on tv, imagine that followed by a 1980 drakkar advert?
brad: hahaha
Quaternion: drew whats alternitive, i am sure drak is in decline, there will come a point where it has to close no?
Drewdelay2: would stick with right advertisement
merlin: drakkar and tv aint gonna mix.
Drewdelay2: this is a thinkers game
Quaternion: unless more people play
uebersoldat: I think this game appeals more to the old fashioned DND crowd
Drewdelay2: not like the rest with the cool graphics
Tanuvien: Just dont sell Drakkar to Blizzard or Sony. Razz
Tanuvien: or IEN
uebersoldat: but there are a lot of them <G>
Drewdelay2: is like chess
Drewdelay2: to me
merlin: no DO sell to blizzard
merlin: SDC might get finished
merlin: lol
Ironstrike: need to figure out what us geeks buy and piggyback adds on those products
Civon: plenty of people are into retro stuff, including games
dhavin: if you sold it to blizzard, they'd power nerf all of the classes like they did in diablo2
merlin: i think you should steal the fallen earth sql tables and spam them all!!
Civon: just have to find the right sites / forums
Tanuvien: porn, booze and technology, Ironstrike Smile
tirith: well
Ironstrike: there ya go!
tirith: you know kesmai got sold to electronic arts
tirith: who did nothing with it
tirith: lol
dhavin: who promptly toileted it.
Omni: that was a strat move
scyrac: they always buy them and kill them lol
CaoCao279: yeah i hate EA
brad: nah, drakkar is my baby
Drewdelay2: mine too Smile
Tanuvien: LoK was a cool game. Its still active.
merlin: well brad, you should get a job for blizzard Smile
brad: i tried something big last year, didnt work out, i'll continue to try to move it forward
merlin: brad i emailed regarding the scoreboard thing if you get a chance to check it.
Drewdelay2: im telling u guys tho .... people are waiting to hear of a game like this
brad: you glutten for punishment merlin?
scyrac: If I can get my current investment back brad, i might just come over there and lend you a hand. Wink
Tanuvien: I like this game because its got a good player base, and you dont have to spend 90% of your time just travelling, like in Wow or EQ, etc.
merlin: if its already outputting to a text file you've done the hard bit haha
brad: its not text
Quaternion: brad, your wikipedia page needs changing, surely u can get some mileage out of it being longest running graphical mmorpg
brad: its binary, had to write a php script to parse it
Ironstrike: just fix whats broken...value versus content
brad: hmm
brad: i could make it an xml file
merlin: either or
brad: i'll look at that merlin, shouldnt be real tough
Ironstrike: I know I sound like a broken record but I wholr heartedly love drak
merlin: i can already parse xml in php
merlin: but i'd learn how to do binary
tirith: the one cool thing about drak
Mainnin: i love drak too iron
brad: im trying to remember what i did with the stats other than record them
tirith: is the small community
tirith: everybody knows everybody
Tanuvien: I dont know if this was already asked or not, but Brad ... have you considered limiting all lairs to be killed by certain levels. Not just having the gear having a required level.
tirith: but.. too small kinda ruins the gameplay
tirith: not having anyone to group with
merlin: i was sat int he pub last night with 4 drakkar players
dhavin: Okay we have 80 people on. Spawn a mega lair!
tirith: and you got the players who want to play and willing to pay for 5 accts boxxing to get through the content
merlin: Snafu, Fubar (they introduced me long time ago) and Dezza, who i introduced a few years back
tirith: the players who cant afford paying that many accts will quit
merlin: oh and Theldren was there too
brad: waiiiit
PossessedAxe: I was thinking maybe giving bosses an actual item table, that way killing a boss repeatedly would be more logical etc. i guess now that they are on farm no point Razz
brad: i just found a binary that turns it into text. maybe i didnt lose all this afterall
merlin: hahah
merlin: was that a Brad-ism?
merlin: the classic school boy error
merlin: uh-oh
brad: i definitely lost the web side of it though
brad: that will need to be rewritten
merlin: thats the easy bit
Ironstrike: not a fan at all of putting lairs on perma camp either
merlin: once the values are assigned to variables they can be displayed how ever
paja1977: bye everyone see u tomorrow
brad: sec, im trying to remember how this worked
brad: i think you ahve to pass it sorting parameters
brad: i'll ahve to dig into this a bit
merlin: once i can seperate one record from the next then i can just stick it into a for each ()
merlin: anyways, sleep time! gnite
merlin: thanks for your time, and lets hope something comes from tonight.
brad: yeah, keep me hoenst
brad: err honest
brad: and focused
tirith: haha
brad: i guess we should go back to channel 0 so we dont look like snobs
Logan69er: too late for that Razz
brad: haha logan
tirith: i just hope we can curb the leechers...
tirith: i mean... the current way people grow
brad: i better hear your voice in the forums tirith
brad: haha
tirith: is they will leech in nork to lvl 18
brad: if i turn around and no one is behind me
Ironstrike: just remember Brad, you own a business, not a frat...
tirith: in km5 or n10.. wherever
brad: hahaha
tirith: then hit 18.. leech in ud5 to 25
tirith: go to nl.. leech all the quests
tirith: sirakron hunt.. pads
tirith: then leech in deep mormar
tirith: its just not the correct way to play the game
tirith: at least not your first time through
Omni: I think xp transfer should be capped at 20 levels, but I'm mean :p
tirith: really.. some of it is rediculous
tirith: a lvl 25 in low mormar
tirith: will hide around a corner
brad: lets see how this goes tomorrow
brad: i'll put it up in the morning
tirith: and have a bigger player in safe spot to take agro and drag out crits
brad: and sit quietly and see the response
merlin: i think it should be allowed if you alread have fullfilled certain quesrts
tirith: they make 5 levels an hour
tirith: can go from lvl 25 to 60 in 2-3 days lol
merlin: like maybe have a npc that wants the scroll from the nameless lord
brad: if TRUELY the only people it affects are "parkers" im good with it
merlin: to enable leeching
PossessedAxe: aight well hold on a sec
merlin: means people need to do it the first time around.
tirith: i dont want it to affect people who arent abusing the system
PossessedAxe: you can't find 10 level 30 crits to do sira
PossessedAxe: the only people you can find, who are still playing, are pretty much capped these days
tirith: if it does.. then maybe we can look for a different solution
brad: possessed, you realize we aren't trying to affect that
PossessedAxe: well i'm just talking about leeching quests
brad: its hiding ( which is already illegal )
Ironstrike: <---not capped
tirith: i mean.. the current rule has been you must be in danger
tirith: like the ud5 teleport
tirith: mars has always told people they have to move from there
PossessedAxe: naw definitely, i think you should have to be in danger
tirith: but with mormar.. no spot is really safe
Ironstrike: not even close possessed
PossessedAxe: BUT
PossessedAxe: on the flipside
tirith: so people got around it by saying.. crits come here im in danger
PossessedAxe: that means taht people who are dualboxing, people who are only still playing the game to level their low crits
PossessedAxe: are going to have to do it the hard way. again
tirith: its not about that possessed
PossessedAxe: well it kind of is
Migam: ask and you shall receive
PossessedAxe: there's like 50 actual players left
Omni: I see 92
PossessedAxe: how many will be left when growing a second or third or fourth crit isn't fun anymore
tirith: its just not right that people can leech to level 78
PossessedAxe: you see 92 accounts, yaeh.
tirith: i mean.. a lvl 25 in mormar.. they cant survive mormar 1
Omni: and lots of people couldn't make it
tirith: yet you see them in mormar 25 leeching lol
PossessedAxe: so just add tiers
PossessedAxe: etc
PossessedAxe: that make it so you cant hide
PossessedAxe: take away the safe zones
PossessedAxe: etc etc
PossessedAxe: but there's gotta be some way to earn the paved road
Quaternion: yeah lvl 25 in mormar! i love it Smile
Omni: tough to do, there needs to be room for strategies
tirith: im thinking if changing it to being in view of the killed crits is too negative
Quaternion: 1 - 78 in a month Smile
tirith: maybe change party exp is shared
tirith: because the way it is.. even with the x/y cut
Valora: If leeching could be made counter-productive that might help matters but I don't know how that could be accomplished.
tirith: a low level in mormar still gets way more exp than they get
PossessedAxe: i'm just saying every time i log into this game after a break
brad: hey, lets try it, see what happens, adjust it, see what happens
PossessedAxe: i'm surprised it's still going
Ironstrike: Leeching is how Drak works now
Ironstrike: changing it will cause problems
PossessedAxe: change things too much, we're going to have serious problems
PossessedAxe: it shouldn't be how it works
tirith: brad.. when they complain.. its my idea
tirith: they already hate me like merlin says lol
Drewdelay2: hehe
Ironstrike: it shouldnt but it is
Valora: To me, it's a misunderstanding of what Drakkar IS.
uebersoldat: I dislike the idea of leeching and NOT playing...now partying within limits should be supported
PossessedAxe: how it should work is there should BE 10 level 30 characters to do the quests
Drewdelay2: u cry alot for things u already did too Tirith
Quaternion: tirith, aside from my joking coments, i htink like pandoras box, now that leeching is out there it would do a lot of damage to player base to change it too drastically
Drewdelay2: ur attitude *****
Drewdelay2: im done with this
brad: i could also try something like "you have to see the kill, or the killer"
PossessedAxe: there should BE 6 level 30's to go group in m1 and die and plow through it all
Omni: perhaps this is a good forum topic for discussion on ideas on how to stop leeching, but allow legit players to help along their baby characters?
Ironstrike: I agree Possessed, but those lvl 30 players dont exist
PossessedAxe: but there aren't.
Valora: This is not a game to be "won", IMO, but almost a lifestyle.
PossessedAxe: and to be quite frank if you want to fix leeching
tirith: mormar isnt even a place for lvl 30s lol
tirith: its a lvl 50+ dungeon
scyrac: keep in mind that you cannot always have a perfect system. Ones who leech insanely usually are not the type who stay with drak after reaching those levels,, as there is nothing left to do anyway and they do not have the patience for anything less.
uebersoldat: agreed
PossessedAxe: cmon dude level 30 was the number i was going with
Quaternion: how about getting one caracter to a high level allows knowledge to be passed down to others
PossessedAxe: that's nto the point im trying to make
PossessedAxe: the point is people are letting others leech
Quaternion: so u have to do at least one character the hard way
Valora: Also greed, scyrac.
tirith: yeah its guilds.. with low numbers
Rakasha: how much of the leeching that people are seeing is actually for different people, not just the 2nd/3rd whatever account?
Valora: agreed
Ironstrike: as a lvl 22 main char I have nothing to do but solo the whole game or leech
tirith: to increase numbers.. they recruit small and power grow
PossessedAxe: they have to
PossessedAxe: thats the only way they can do the content
Ironstrike: sad but true
PossessedAxe: unless they want to sit here for 10 years waiting for players who can actually grow themselves
PossessedAxe: but lets face it
merlin: if you have fullfilled a certain criteria >handed in certain items only a level 78 can get/has<
uebersoldat: aye content is the reason I play and several of my friends
scyrac: True..but when you look around 1 year later..where are they? poof...
PossessedAxe: look
brad: easy now guys
brad: easy.
PossessedAxe: i can start a crit on world of warcraft, plow to the capped level, and play with my friends in a month
Valora: Iron, that is why SLAYER exists. We are not into Power Leveling, and we are pretty much the same level--WAY under 50--and we enjoy hanging out with each other.
Rakasha: why have to play to 78 beforee you can take your other crits up with you?
PossessedAxe: but in this game, if i tried to do that single handedly, i wouldnt be grouping with my friends for months. maybe years at the rate i soloplay
Ironstrike: thats very good Valora
PossessedAxe: people want to play with their friends. that's why we play, we have a community here we want to group with and interact with
brad: guys, lets just agree that the problem is combat without risk
brad: helping friends, hunting with friends, is all good
Omni: lots of different play styles. One osn't necessarily wrong, we all have different ideas of how to have 'fun'
brad: maybe the sharing needs to be reduced
Ironstrike: that is a product of bigger issue
scyrac: I know sevearal Dlayer guild players and they really are the core of what has kept drak ticking.
Rakasha: and if you recruit your friends to play, ow do you start playing with them if you're higher level?
brad: but not the community
scyrac: Dlayer=Slayer
Valora: Eh?
PossessedAxe: i dont even know what the slayer guild is -_-
tirith: i understand
PossessedAxe: you don't start playing with them right away, but the grind right now
PossessedAxe: single handedly
PossessedAxe: just takes too long
PossessedAxe: as you add content and players reach the top
tirith: but if my idea of having fun was gutting open dogs and hanging them from trees in my neighborhood
tirith: i would probably be tossed into jail lol
uebersoldat: Slayer plays to play the game for its content, not to rush at blinding speeds to the top, get bored, then quit Drakkar
PossessedAxe: you have to make it easier for the new players to level
PossessedAxe: the prize in ebing an old player and leveling when it was tough
PossessedAxe: was that YOU DID IT. congratulations
Ironstrike: need more new players who dont have stuff handed to them
PossessedAxe: there's no need to be bitter and cop eveyone out of a good time lol
scyrac: Let's put it this way..I was here 20 years ago..I have visited off and on all this time..i am here today..not all player are alike..some like junk food are here today and gone tomorrow.
Valora: The SLAYER Guild is a guild specifically structured for mid-level people. Or, teeny-weenies, to the Big Guys.
PossessedAxe: aight well i havent seena nyone tagged slayer
PossessedAxe: so.. rock on for your efforts and whatever
Valora: We have become a Have and Have-Not society.
Ironstrike: and Valora, you require guildies to earn gear rewards?
PossessedAxe: anyways i dont know i'm just ranting now
PossessedAxe: what im trying to say is..
Ironstrike: new players who dont earn gear will leave, period
PossessedAxe: MAKE BANKERS CASH CHECKS
PossessedAxe: Razz
Valora: The Haves are the level 72 characters. The Have-Nots are the rest of us.
Valora: Particularly beginners.
Valora: Is it any wonder that they then want to leech up to level 60, at least, overnight?
Omni: what if you are level 90? <g>
Quaternion: valora many of us haves as u put it, worked hard to get it
PossessedAxe: ehh, been there done that omni
PossessedAxe: ;D
Quaternion: took me 6 years to max
Quaternion: my first
tirith: im not saying leeching is bad lol
tirith: leeching without risk is
Ironstrike: it should be that way for everyone Quat
tirith: if you can stand in the zoo with the players killing it and not die
tirith: leech all the exp `you can
PossessedAxe: level 90's not all as cool as it's copped up to be.. couldnt even use tiers. Razz
uebersoldat: agreed iron
tirith: a lvl 60 may be able to leech in mormar 25 with the killer
tirith: but a lvl 25 cant
tirith: so it will work better
Omni: all mine work just fine ;-)
Migam: some can be exp75 and not have as much as some think
Ironstrike: last time I played lvl 25 was HUGE
Valora: Yes, many a high-level player has worked like a rat to get where he or she is. And others have not.
Ironstrike: uther took a dozen crits
PossessedAxe: hehe
Omni: so obviously, lots of stuff for us to talk about and work on
Omni: I'm thrilled to see all this passion, honestly
Omni: I will post a summary after I clean it up
tirith: Smile
Ironstrike: everything was earned, and everything was appreciated and we worked towards goals
uebersoldat: ah but we haven't answered the most important question of all....
Omni: and break out the hot topics to discussion posts in the forums
brad: thanks omni
Rakasha: iron, people quit during those days too...
scyrac: Good job Omni Wink
Ironstrike: playerbase was stronger
Rakasha: thanks for the conference brad
Valora: If you have not seena SLAYER tag, that means you don't hang out where we peons do.
uebersoldat: ...and that is: "Is Omni female"? o_O
Omni: and anything hazy - I'll nag brad for clearer answers <G>
PossessedAxe: kk. i expect to be able to cash and withdraw my checks from bankers in like 2 weeks brad, get on it
Migam: maybe there should be a 1-retort limit in those threads Neutral
uebersoldat: it's a mystery
Migam: as those who dont agree choose to flood the threads and answer every single post
Omni: apparently I need more facebook pictures..
PossessedAxe: facebook pic is a woman
uebersoldat: LOL
PossessedAxe: but its like a 32x32 pic
Omni: I'll have to post up some more
tirith: haha
tirith: take one now with a sign that says "I love drakkar - Omni"
PossessedAxe: rofl
brad: im hitting the sack guys, see you tomorrow
Omni: thanks again brad
scyrac: nite!
brad: when we will repeat this for others! haha
uebersoldat: yes thank you
Migam: aye, thanks
PossessedAxe: night!
Omni: any other questions , you can come back tomorrow and ask them
Omni: same place, same time
uebersoldat: same Drak channel

uebersoldat: reruns as a kid obvisouly
Omni: ok draklings, I have a lot of chat to sort through and clean
Omni: You big kids, go play with my uther pet
tirith: i did play with it a bit with my barb... i couldnt do it solo
tirith: i would need some help lol
tirith: er...
tirith: is it in live alt 2?
Omni: no, just test server. I have to create the start-up npc for it still, rewards and how to keep little players from getting annihilated
Jimbo34: hey omni i have a question for you
tirith: well.. i need to get in touch with the inactive beta testers lol
Jimbo34: are you a guy or a girl? Razz
Mars: yes
edfrmfla: i'll bet a meg she's a girl Smile
Omni: hmm, oops. I may have broken something
Mars: not the first time <G>
Jimbo34: ive heard that omni is a guy from some, and some say girl
Jimbo34: its not really important, im just wondering lol
Omni: no one believes me anyway <shrug>
Omni: yeah, oops. I broke the way out of uther, lol
tirith: yeah
tirith: i meant to mention that lol
tirith: i just slammed
Omni: oh, he's nastier than last time btw - doesn't have his custom tiers yet. current ones are placeholders for the new stuff
tirith: well current ones make him a party char
Omni: he's not intended to be soloable
tirith: right i know
tirith: im saying.. i took thief and barb and neither were able to solo
Omni: and should challenge a balanced party of top end players when tweaked
Omni: lots of tweaking to do, ty for input
tirith: i mean.. you never know what clever way someone could come up with soloing
tirith: some mechanics come into play that you dont think about when coding it
tirith: so i tried 2 of the ways i could think of to solo
tirith: there may still be ways around it.. ill have to brainstorm a bit
Omni: yes, please do
tirith: for one thing.. health regen being high enough so that not 1 player can do enough damage to keep him notched by themselves
tirith: thats why i couldnt barb solo it
tirith: thief cant hide and solo it due to the aoe.. unless perhaps..
tirith: here comes my brainstorming lol
tirith: ill log in and go to it lol
merlin: hidden healer and hidden ment = ownage Smile
merlin: + adi + agil + fog
merlin: hay presto
tirith: well yeah i was thinking combat heals might change that
tirith: maybe party quirks will make it easier too
tirith: so not solo.. but duo should be impossible too
tirith: you want to see it require a party of more than 2 characters id imagine
merlin: i'll come test with you tomrrow when i pay my accounts if i get time after work.
tirith: well its not up on live yet
merlin: oh forgot im not a tester haha
merlin: never mind then!
merlin: sleep time again gnite
Omni: Moved to Chan 0 everyone
