    WreckingCrew will stick with Apex until the end, that means when only us left in the server. Relaunch will hurt all the people who has been here since day 1.

    Aesteris got a reaction from k22k in I'm gonna be brutally honest with admins   
    Read the topic; as with every other suggestion topic.
     
    First off, just because someone suggests something does not mean we will go ahead and implement this the way it's been suggested, that's not to say some of your (and others') suggestions aren't good suggestions, but I just wanted to get that out of the way. Reasons we don't reply with "will be implemented in 2 months" is because anyone should know by now that ETAs will simply disappoint people when they can't be met, as such we never announce any ETAs for anything unless we've finished the work needed to meet that ETA.
     
    As for growing the server, we are planning something to regain attention / attract more players (no, it does not involve a relaunch...), the fact is I can't dedicate even 20% of what I used to be able to dedicate during the summer months, and it's taking its toll on things. Obviously, most of you are now thinking "Why not hire someone then?" - the answer is simple, no one will ever get their hands on anything we've made, server, database, or otherwise. There are no trustable people in the PSKO scene, people from the outside are a no-go for more reasons than I care to explain. In-game GM presence could be improved, however in-game GMs aren't able to help anyone aside from answering game/server-related questions, use the notice feature, and mute/ban characters. They simply do not have the power required, as again - there are no trustable people in the PSKO scene.
     
    I'm not a machine, I dedicate virtually all of my available spare time to try and do things needed for the server.
     
    @TilaTequila I have absolutely no words for any part of your reply.
     
    Have a nice day,

    Hey everyone,
     
    Due to popular request, Isiloon has been moved from the Abyss to the center of Ronark Land!
    Its respawn time is random and its drop rate has been changed accordingly
     
    Good luck to everyone trying to kill it!

    FROM PLAYERS FOR PLAYERS
     
    Hello I am GetRekt and i wanted to help this server improve as i have put a lot of effort to play here and gather a couple of friends on this server.
    What i wanted to say is...
     
    Every of server staff are trying their best to listen to players moaning and cries everyday but we cant notice any improvements in server.
     
    The easiest way to improve server is doing the smallest things to make your players happy.
    For example people were really looking forward for Ardream because that would make us use chitins and lower grade garment.
     
    Everyone are going only for shards/raptors/hellbreakers/eagles eyes/shells and blablabla that's what we can only see on merchants
    *sometimes apex vouchers*
     
    Market is already being destroyed by people holding 200 gbs and more.
     
    By cutting fishing/mining u did well but u did not think about it well as a team.
    I think that you need to use more surveys and general type of topics with server players.
     
    Newcomer event is a pear in the ocean but still it doesn't help people find exp/farm parties as they need...that's not how you're gonna improve your online number.
     
    Ardream has nothing in it, totally...there's no players, there's no bosses, there's nothing we can do in there...It was just opened like that to make more space for people that are sitting in moradon setting merch, doing fishing, sometimes pk and events.
     
    First of all you should aim exping and farming parties to let them gain more then people that are sitting in bowl
    Did you know that selling 3 tails of shaulas u can get something over 15gbs ? easy obtainable when you're geared - BUT NOT WHEN YOU ARE NOT GEARED - and that will make newcomers thinks that they has no chances compared to people who already got +7/+8 items.
     
    Making colony zone makes server dying step by step - Id recommend any of the administrators visit eslant or lufferson castle exping spots.
     
    Remember that there are people who prefer PK and do not prefer it while exping. Both styles should be similar but exping while being able to die should be more rewarding.
     
    GMs are not trying to communicate with players, having fun with them in-game as they should be more sociable then any of player, making small events which gives almost nothing but fun playing with others.
     
    There's nothing you can do as solo player and its really hard to do something as duo party but fishing. People are fishing only because there's no spots for them to be attracted by.
     
    Skill items are really hard to get, its making people offer about 600milions to get lupus pendant which makes people avoid PVP/PK even more.
     
    My suggestion is to focus more on helping players get to the top and making them more fun-zones like exping farming, so they can join PK, higher grade events and so they can join our insanely great community in late-game plays raiding such a great bosses as Felankor as a server!
     
    My idea is:
     
    create custom collectables which can be dropped from different farm zones that would be working like chests/gems/frags (low/mid/high grade), that would push fishing/mining away to the worst farming style which can be used as a side farming when ure tired after work or bored after hours of killing monsters or pk.
     
    100 blue crystals - 1 exchange for high grade armors with low probabilty of unique or other useful item
    10 red crystals - 1 exchange for high grade weapons with medium probabilty of aids in the bag which kills your character mwahaha. (just a joke)
     
    make more events like "WE ARE ADDING BOSSES IN ARDREAM PREPARE YOURSELVES in 5-10 days"
    Random worm is travelling through moradon with ultra drop (any probability to drop bus , chests gems uniques) which would be really hard to kill for example with bare fists 1 dmg per hit.
    Thats just a random ideas of events that could be easily done to improve your server
     
    Make Eslant and Lufferson castle/Elmorad castle monsters drop more useful items and for example you can add a global chance for dropping items that drops from fishing so people would prefer to kill monsters instead of sitting in a place and struggling their nuts - making 1000 accs just to fish.
     
    Adding APEXKO Custom npcs in moradon just for event (bandicoot named Aesteris is raping npcs in moradon - PEOPLE PLEASE HELP , STAPH THAT MONSTER)
     
    Make Events that even lvl 1 character will be able to join!
     
    For now its everything from me cause I am going for a party soon but i would be gladly to hear opinions from others and for sure seeing some of the server staff joining the discussion (CAUSE U WERE PLAYERS AS WELL)
     
     
     
    BEST REGARDS, GETREKT.

    Aesteris got a reaction from Cornflakes in HaHaCantPwnMe luring to emc fishing spot   
     
    This argument completely made it impossible for me to go do anything about it, your clannies abusing a bug is "okay" because it's the server's fault, but it's not okay for someone else to be using (what is arguably a logic bug)? Applying a double standard there aren't we?
     
    Eitherway, what I see is someone who got a few Burning Skeletons behind him while getting to the fishing spot, something which guards should've taken care of (but didn't as I forgot to spawn them). If it were a Troll or anything that wasn't directly next to the fishing spot, now then we'd be talking.

    Hey everyone!
     
    As I'm sure many of you are aware, PK is currently at a state which does not satisfy any of you, and it doesn't satisfy us either.
     
    Here are some of the updates we'll be pushing out as fast as possible in order to boost PK activity and give players more incentive to take a peak in Ronark Land
     
    - "Skill Quest Stone" will be added to bowl with a 30 minute respawn timer, this stone has a 100% chance to drop 1 of the items needed for your skill quests, as well as a slightly lower chance to drop the level 62 master scrolls (in its entirety)
     
    - Rental Gear for Ronark Land ONLY, for a small fee (500K) you'll be able to rent gear for 6 hours, which get removed upon leaving Ronark Land.
     
    - Monsters in the bowl (Caridinals, Haungas, etc) will be getting a revised drop table, with drops useful for everyone at a very high rate (75% ~ 100%), their respawn time will be increased to counter the increased drop rate.
     
    - EXP modifiers based on level for Ronark Land ONLY:
      Level 35 - 60 - 100%
      Level 61 - 70 - 75%
      Level 71 - 80 - 50%
      Level 81 - 83 - 25%
     
    - Server-wide announcement 5 minutes before the Chaos Stone spawns to increase competitiveness for the Chaos Stone and its bosses
     
    Furthermore, we'd like to let everyone know we're also working on a 'late starter package' and means of drawing in more players as time progresses to increase the overall population more than it already has, as we continue to see growth every day!
     
    Hope to see everyone during the boss events later on!
