    Nath reacted to Aesteris in [MUST READ] NP reduction   
    Dear Apexians,
    Today marks the start of the new year, and as such everyone in the Apex team wishes you a very happy new year!
    What we'll be doing today will lay the groundwork for Apex in the future. We know it may come as a blow to you personally, but everyone is equally affected.
    Here are some of the future updates we will be pushing now that this band aid has been ripped off:
    1. We will be adding gear to the NP store (purchasable with NP, not LP), which'll allow you to advance your character.
    2. We will be adding expanded rewards for those on the monthly ranking board (up to the top 200, subject to change), indulging more of you (and more newcomers!) in some sweet upgrades by simply playing.
    3. We will be adding a weekly ranking board, which will also be used to reward a whole bunch of you with some gear.
    4. We will be able to activate PK more easily by triggering NP events at certain times, to quickly (re)populate Ronark Land after events (and during downtimes).
    5. We will be changing how PK rewards work; You will be able to obtain gear simply by PK'ing, with special events running to spice up what you can get, consistently, and randomly.
    6. We will be able to create an environment that allows us to provide you with more competition and activity throughout the whole day by giving more incentive to keep the nation's balanced.
    7. We might even dabble with seasons and seasonal tournaments now that the monthly ranking will actually be that, a monthly ranking, rather than a "who's bought their medals the latest" ranking.
    These updates won't come all at once, and some will come later than others, but we hope this will give you a clear view of where we want to take Apex, and we hope it gives you something to look forward to in 2019!
    For those unaware, what we've done is the following:
    1. Reduced everyone's national points by 90%
    2. Reduced everyone's donated national points by 90%
    3. Reduced the requirements for clans to advance grades
    4. Reduced the cost for capes (except for the new Castellan capes)
    5. Remove the medal merchants in Moradon, El Morad Castle, and Luferson Castle
    NOTE: Previously purchased medals will NOT be removed, you are free to keep them, or exchange them, as you wish.
    Sincerely,
    The Apex team

    Nath got a reaction from BroOk in About Clan Grades & Cape [You shouldn't had reduced them]   
    To be honest it was so easy to rank up with that NP event all year long that you're probably right, it feels like you missed the whole process of ranking up entirely. Also people could buy characters with millions of NPs before, so they were already up there to begin with.
    No, I wouldn't like to have to do this again, but that's a really bad scenario.
    If you ever get in the need of doing something like this once again, I might as well jump ship myself. So the fact such idea (even though you're saying you it won't happen) is there in the table, is kind of scary.

    Which brings me back to my original post, you may have plans for the server that we're not aware of, it would be nice if you could share them with the community in time (or at least as long as changes go) so we have a better grasp of what's all this being aimed to. Maybe it could prevent creating topics such as this in advance.

    I totally agree with OP. Not sure what is it that you guys are planning for the server, but since NP gain is back to original rate (50 per kill/dead) and NPs were reduced for everyone, it would totally give players (and clans all along) a goal to work towards.
    Having to gain all those NPs back to rank up your clan grade, in my opinion, brings a new self satisfaction feeling of achievement as well as a sort of in game status for those who put in the time and effort to rank up.

    You need to speak openly with the community when you say something like it would be counter-intuitive with the server future plans, because right now it just seem an arbitrary change, with no real reason behind it.

    Why would you not just do that from the start?

    Nath got a reaction from Sierra in NP Increase Scroll Bug   
    This happens to me quite often with Weapon Enchant scroll. The scrolls icon just disappear from my 'buffs bar'.

    I haven't been paying attention closely enough but I think it happens when I die to other players (not all the time). I didn't bother to report it because it was just Weapon Enchant scroll, but it sucks if this also happens with NP scrolls. Going to keep an eye on this to help you debug it.

    Edit note
    @twostars
    I could recreate the issue (with Weapon Enchant scroll) it happened twice when switching instances.
    1. First I had my scrolls and got summoned into Juraid Mountain, result: Weapon Enchant scroll gone.
    2. Had scrolls once again and got summoned into BDW, result: Weapon Enchant scroll gone.

    Nath got a reaction from YouGotPwndByMyAss in About CSW / King, Tax Rate % Money.   
    This request makes no sense, and I'll explain why. This is the official behavior and by those standards it means it'x perfectly developed.

    1. If you're a king, it's logical that you control the economy taxes under your domain (EMC, Luferson) whether the tax is 10% I assume it's based on the fact that back in the day (official client) those two maps actually had a lot people grinding on them. I could care less if they increase it to 20% or not, up to devs.
    2. If you're the CSW winner you have control over Moradon area, therefore you can tax it being 20% the max (fair prize).
    3. CZ being a colony zone (as the name states), can't be 'own' by anyone: nation, clan or particular. Therefore is a market free area. How can you decide who deserves taxes from this area?

    Now, since this is a private server, everyone is either in CZ or Moradon, so the ones that benefit the most are Castle holders and that rate being 20% seems like a fair prize to them.

    Nath reacted to twostars in SERVER LAGGGGGG LAGGGGG   
    The traceroutes I've seen have all shown routing issues to our current provider, though not directly anything to do with them, randomly spiking from ~80ms to ~1,400ms. This means it's possible that other providers we go with could suffer the same issues.
    With recent patches we've improved behaviour in high traffic areas (not perfect, but it's definitely an improvement), which more or less leaves us with the extremely troubling routing issues. We're in the process of looking at other providers that (hopefully) shouldn't route through these problematic nodes.
    Personally I'm still hopeful they'll be fixed before we settle on something, but so far no such luck.

    Without me knowing any specifics about the server/provider all i can say is i don’t have any lag what so ever, no packet loss and the same ping everywhere. That should rule out the servers capacity and it’s probably something else along the way.
    I know it sucks and we are trying to figure out why it’s worse than before for countries far away, or at least how we can make it better.

    We couldn't finish last week UTC @Aesteris  (first time?) that should tell you something. You guys did something to the HP of bosses last patch that made it impossible for the low population of the server to go all the way to the end. Essentially just made it worst and it was already hard to finish.

    Switch or just DC. WAR premiun was a bad idea to begin with for people that doesn't buy premiun, you just ruined their farming experience (BUS, BF, Titans).

    I understand you want people to come in server, new people, and pk, a lot. But that DC premiun and the oreads one were the only daily Q that didn't give an Apexis chest worth doing.

    Please, revert it to DC premiun.

    Hi, my suggestion would be to make it possible to choose between DC or WAR premium in the daily quest. The reason is simple: If you wanted to farm bifrost / bus each day a bit it was possible till now even though you can't afford 30 days premium for yourself, but now if you want to make money for example then you need to farm at bowl. So I think it will not hurt anyone if you make it possible to choose between the 2 premium

    Nath got a reaction from Vivaldi in make ultima harder   
    It doesn't matter if they make it stronger. 
    A few months ago it was easier to kill, so they went ahead and actually implemented what you're proposing right now: they increased Ultima's resistance. Believe it or not is way harder to kill now than what it was a few months ago, and yet it still dies in 20 seconds.

    So it doesn't matter how many times they do this, the result will always be the same (unless they go to a point where is so hard to kill that nobody can lol), and let me explain why:

    The current problem is the nation imbalance during the day time (day for me at least). There's not enough organized humans to fight orcs, so most of the human players quit, log an orc toon and get their easy box and that's it, pk is over.

    During the night, at least at the moment, this is not the case. Even though human nation is stronger, Ultima doesn't die in seconds, it can even last up to 30 mins alive, hence keeping nice pk around it, but that's because the nation balance is not as impaired as it is during the day (and because humans don't rush to kill it, we actually try to keep it alive as much as possible to maintain the pk).

    @BroOk
    I don't even like this Ultima in CZ to be honest, but I've got to give it to the admins, it does bring a lot of pk to CZ, sadly people just logs to get their box and then go AFK. So even though I don't like it and I'd rather have it removed, that won't do any good whatsoever pk wise.

    As for removing one of the scheduled respawn, you can't just have one single event on a global server like this, that's just mean. The reason all these events repeat through the day is because they've got to give a chance to everyone in the server to have the experience, so it's not like they want to give away lots and lots of free items, no. It's just a timezone matter, removing one the events it's just unfair for the people that's going to miss it because they can't attend during that time. You're practically giving a whole timezone an advantage over the other.
