    Get some tissues because there was a bug which caused Kurian DOTs to not do as much damage as they should - which'll be fixed after the restart

    You're quoting something from last server though - as long as its 1 KO per Windows it's okay, if it's not, it's banable.

    Aesteris got a reaction from Number 2 in List of things That Are Silly Right Now   
    1) I've checked the client source, went on USKO, and confirmed it working exactly as it should - ANY lightning skill, as well as any R-attack can cancel a priest's heal. The stun inflicted by a lightning skill does NOT cancel your heal - it merely blocks you from casting anything not currently being casted.
     
    2) While checking on the first issue, I've checked on this as well - we're handling everything exactly the way as USKO does.
     
    3) Working on that - Felankor sounds like a good option seeing USKO does it as well
     
    4) Also being worked on; NPs from kills was added already, digging into the other stuff deeper asap, hoping to have most (if not all) fixed by next CSW.
     
    5) Kurians have seen yet another rework on KRKO, I will take the time to translate all of those changes and post them in a separate thread for you guys to give feedback on (e.g. "Yes, rework it to behave like that", "keep it like this", "do something else entirely")
     
    6) Don't see much point in adding the guaranteed Gold Bar, though 100% chance at one of the uniques in the drop table doesn't sound like a bad change to me.

    Aesteris got a reaction from DHC in Why is Isiloon not in CZ bowl?   
    I think there may be a need for it to move to Ronark Land, however I don't want it to be merely spawning randomly.
     
    What if.....
     
    We make it an event, taking place in bowl?
    The event would be held at set times in the day like any other scheduled event.
    There's a 5 minute announcement prior to it happening, and when it happens the bowl will be filled with Servants of Isiloon.
    Kill all of the Servants within X amount of seconds (minutes if there's a lot of servants) and the Isiloon will take a peak. If not all servants are killed within the given timeframe, isiloon won't spawn at all - try again next time!
     
    Need feedback on this, I think I'd enjoy it this way much more

    Aesteris got a reaction from Beer in Suggestion - Regarding Wars   
    I kinda liked the 'free time' available on Saturday - allowed for PK to pick up nicely. That said, if we end up reducing the total war time (e.g. 30 minutes + 30 minutes, or 1 hour + 30 minutes), perhaps it's not a bad idea to move the first war (on Monday) to Saturday

    Thank you for expressing your views - there is a difference between "blocking someone from passive farming" and having an acceptable rate promoting active game play rather than passive. Your views most likely don't represent the entirety of the server, and although "even USKO doesn't require rainworms" in USKO the golden rod vouchers are worthless for a reason (it's shit compared to mining). I do agree that we need to ensure other ways to farm these items are there available for everyone across multiple slots though - which is something we'll be going over for sure!

    Aesteris got a reaction from Alsahim in My thoughts on what could improve the server.   
    1. There's a good reason these don't drop that often anymore - I can however look into disabling this for specific items.
     
    2. I'd like to introduce you to our daily and weekly quests, the Apexis Chests are great to straight up get the items you're after - make sure to do them as often as possible! Disassembling your items is another viable option, ever wondered what you should do with that Priest Impact? Wonder no more, disassembling is the answer! The rates at which these items drop from fishing is not high enough for this server to become fishing ko v2, unfortunately. We'll be looking into more ways of introducing these materials nevertheless

    I think mining and fishing is fine atm, it's definitly not op, which would be terrible. It might need some small tweaks but that will only become visible after a reset/official launch. Too many people started afk farming with the high rates at the start.
     
    It might need some small buffs here and there but for now it's good

    Much better for it to be useless at first and then it receives a buff later,than to have it be broken at the beginning.

    Aesteris got a reaction from azreal313 in Mining and fishing discussion.   
    The simple solution isn't so simple - I'm very happy with the rates I've set fishing to be at, and don't intend to make it much better, hence the "drastic" amount is simply a reflection of what the rates would be like without the requirement to have rainworms. I don't mind to offer everyone a completely passive way of doing things, but like I pointed out, few will be willing to take the hit (which is really just keeping the rates exactly the same across the board), which seemingly includes you, already suggesting to just not lower the yields by such drastic amounts.
     
    Anyhow, there's things to be said for both sides, I personally think the reason some people are crying over the rates as they are is because they may have grown too accustomed to the AFK (be it manually or with the use of a macro) gearing present in the previous server. I'd like to think of mining and fishing as an extra activity added to the game which you can make use of, but don't have to (and even shouldn't to stay competitive).
     
    Nevertheless, I'm still open to good suggestions (reducing the selling price of BUS to the NPC is not a good suggestion, it can't be done without decreasing the price to buy it from the NPC in the first place, as far as I know anyway)

    I doubt you would enjoy that change; Let's pull some math into this disregarding the fact you need to repair :
     
    In an hour, 720 attempts are made to get an item from fishing.
    To be able to fish for an hour, considering the rate at which a rainworm "drops" from fishing, You need 654 rainworms.
    To get 654 rainworms, you need to mine in EMC / Luferson for anywhere between 2.6h to 6h (2.6h if you're using the golden mattock, 6h if you're not). To average this out "fairly" we'd take the average of the 2, as some people will be using a golden mattock and a golden fishing rod, whereas some will only have a golden fishing rod. This puts us at 4.3h, now looking lets see, what does this mean for the BUS drop rate from Fishing for example? Currently, you're getting ~36 BUS per hour (statistical average), disregarding repair trips. If we were to remove the rainworms, you'll be getting 36 / (4.3h + 1h) = 6.8 BUS per hour, again disregarding the trips to repair your rod. Let's take another item - the advanced leather for example. You're currently getting about 1.8 of those per hour, removing the rainworm requirement will put it at 0.34 per hour.
     
    I doubt a lot of people are willing to "take the hit" to the rate if we were to remove the rainworm requirement. Fishing isn't meant to get you to super shells, playing the game is (doing everything, or a large part of, everything we've got to offer).
     
    Now, to the issue of mining / fishing characters - there are actually measures in place (though currently disabled, as I want to see the "best scenario" for everyone during this beta) which nerf the mining and fishing rates by up to 3 times, depending on various (obv. non-disclosed) criteria of your character. So, by my calculations, and by keeping the criteria to these dynamic rate changes a secret, I expect someone to need at least 4 characters mining or fishing at the same time (all with the golden mattock / golden fishing rod) to be able to obtain the same rate as someone who is "legit" and just plays the game and uses mining / fishing as an activity to do when they don't have a lot of time on their hands.
     
    Lastly, "but what about macros" - in short, we can't block them from being used entirely, but we can make life hard on them, as a macro (not an actual cheat) can't determine (for example) the location of an NPC in the game. Did I hear anyone say "give us a patrolling inn hostess and sundries behind the fishing spot /mining spot"? Perhaps.
     
    EDIT:
     
    As for the golden should only be a rate increase - it is just that - a rate increase. If anyone finds any discrepancy (though I don't see how) between the use of a normal one versus a golden one, let me know and I'll get it fixed asap

    Hello guys!
     
    Since the population dramatically dropped the last couple of days me and some friends (that's planning to make a fresh comeback to the server) wondering some things and I myself think ppl are afraid to play right now cuz they don't know whats gonna happen to the server and espacally spend money in pus, I'll be here to the end if that's how it's gonna be. But I think if we can just get some straight infomation on however you gonna keep the server alive as it is with no relaunch or something else then i'll pass that infomation around to get some old and newer players back to this server.

    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,
