I'd honestly like to know why Tuesdays are special for whichever reason.

 

Why not a Friday, or a Saturday? Those seem like fun days! :)

 

Other than that, I think it's cool that you post old videos that remind me of my age.

 

Tuesdays are the one day we don't have maintenance, large meetings or existing streams so I thought it would be a good idea to preview what was coming with maintenance and interact with the community. We have separate streams (like the lets plays) for Fridays.

Pardon me if I am speaking out of turn or off-topic. What is the CM/GM stance on bots if and when reported?

Also, I know people are allowed to use bb/db outside towns but can something be done about all the spamming that Payon's spore field is subjected too? I level my alts around there and I've met my share of disgruntled users who find it annoying when they get one shot-ed by something they can't kill yet.

 

They are illegal and the GMs will investigate bots when they get to the ticket in the queue. If the character is logged out or responds when tested this is the most common reason why a suspect account would not be blocked.

 

We are hesitant to block dead branch use on maps, as it is something that is a legacy feature of the game. Unfortunately for the people using these dead branches, most bots are able to avoid the spawns so they do negatively affect new players.

is the fishing event supposed to sometimes just steal your bait? when are we getting the locations added for the treasure maps weve been getting?

 

what ever happened to the GM whos job it was to just hunt bots? i reported a few obvious rogue bots in Amatsu over a month ago and they are still there... in addition there are bots all over the usual maps and even bots doing the fishing event...

 

The treasure maps were added this week. Sometimes you will not catch something when you cast. We still have a GM who handles ingame RO reports but if you spot bots that were reported a long time ago and are still active please let me know what the ticket number was.

All Classic Server questions.

 

  • Do you guys have the knowhow and ability to revise the potting skills, quantities, materials and such on Classic?
     
  • Would it be possible to add an inactivity timer to BG that kicks players for not moving or acting for a specified amount of time? Of course these kicked players would receive 0 badges and have a timer extension placed on them to prevent reentry for a few more minutes than usual.
     
  • On the matter of BG, players are still getting DCd from there due the spawn timer cycle thing. Needs fixing.
     
  • Could a GSB -> Unnamed/Unranked White Slim conversion NPC at a moderate to low rate ever be a thing?

     

Downvote button please.

 

We are not able to change the mechanics or items needed for the potting skills on Classic, that is "baked in" to the exe. 

 

It would not be possible to have something that would detect if users were active

 

We need to take another crack at the battlegrounds spawn issue

 

We'd have to think about the last one

 

No downvote button.

El Dicastes
Level 120 - 150 Board
-Centipede
-Tatacho
-Dolomedes

-Rake Horn Scaraba


3. Since the Glast Heim spotlight is in, how about adding the Geffen boards?
 

Geffen
Level 1 - 20 Board
-Chonchon
-Roda Frog
-Mandragora
-Ambernite
Level 21 - 40 Board
-Creamy
-Caramel
-Horn

Re-posting from dimensional gorge:
 

  1. Are we expecting the +160 level expansion in October?

We just heard that the level expansion update will be coming in November for us. 

  1. Will turn-in system expand to accommodate the new level expansion? Doesn't have to be on the day of release but any time later of course.

Since we have more control over the TI/Bounty Board system we will have to expand the options available for leveling once the cap increases. 

  1. Does iRo have the rights to modify monsters HP? If so, some MvPs are in need for an HP boost. Why? First, to give players a kill chance against those with high output dps even if it means there is little chance to win. Currently, some MvPs can be 1 shotted due to the low HP and the high damage done. Secondly, an indirect fix to one of the none spawning MvP Tomb bugs.

I think that a lot of monsters need to be adjusted for Renewal mechanics. Technically we can modify monsters, but new updates from kRO would revert these changes. Technically we would need to notify kRO about that. 

  1. Can you reconsider reducing Eden Group Mark reuse time to 15 minutes please? I can't call this an emergency item with a reuse timer of 120 minutes. Its way too long and the user have to BE ONLINE to make the timer tick. Might as well use the normal butterfly wing item.

Asking about this. 

Thanks!

Haha... Because Oda gets to have a life on the weekends :D

 

Can you guys please fix it so the the pm block list isn't deleted every time we warp. This is really a pain going in, & out of Eden, and/or going in, & out of the Kitchen especially.

 

We're not going to be able to change the way the PM block system works, unfortunately. 

 

Last week I asked about all the limited gear items that have been in there for about 6 months maybe more. Your answer was "These will likely stick around as long as we have limited amounts of new items of those categories from HQ. Once we get more new items we can phase those out."

 

Are saying you guys are going to keep flooding the market, with these items, till you have new items you can put in? That doesn't really make sense since new items should be released in Groove Packs, & Lucky Boxes, like they always have been. Granted I haven't been playing long but you guys just keep adding more gear, that's already on the market, & has been in boxes. IMO the only reason this is happening is so that you guys can make more money regardless of the effect it is having on the market.

 

In general the sales on these individual items taper off after a few weeks, but it's nice to have them in for people who are new. 

 

Thanks for posting the answers last week

Can you reduced the weight of a "Special WoE White Pot" from 5 to 2 and make them heal a little more?. Also make it so woe blues and whites work in pvp.

 

We're hesitant to play around with the potions without extensive discussion as to not hurt the value of crafted potions.

The pots you get from BG already work in PvP. I use them all the time.

 

Also ffs have you never heard of competitive balance? If you want ranked slims then go buy or brew ranked slims.

I think the question that The Sputnik is getting to would be is there a chance for a possible relook and/or a possible revamp of BG rewards for consumables on Classic, specifically BG Whites? I do not think it is meant to replace or match ranked slims at all, but maybe he is referring to making a realistic change for an alternate way to supply guilds. Encouraging solo play for hunting supplies and then forcing solo play to pot the supplies for a guild is really great for a MMORPG! I've been that person before for a long time and will never do it again :P

 

We must look at reasons why there is a lack of competitive guilds on Classic. Some of the biggest reasons are over supply issues (potting specifically). Offering a slightly less effective HP potions that encourages guild play to farm or active fights between rival guilds could be great! Currently though, the bg whites are horribly inefficient compared to some of the weakest hp recovery items in game... Even matching them with non ranked slims and reducing the weight to 3 instead of 5 (BG whtie) would be great and could raise the possibility of attracting entire guilds from other servers who are use to supplying through this fashion...

 

Edit: The people who put forth a different form of effort to making Ranked Slims would still have a huge competitive advantage. Their potions would heal for more and weigh less. Ranked Slims would still be drastically more desirable, but at least this would help open doors and offer incentives for more guilds to appear or move to our lovely server.

Sounds like more of an issue with the potting system than with the quality/usefulness of BG rewards, and even BG itself. The Battlegrounds is heavily abused for gear and supplies as-is; buffing what can be gained from it will just increase the frequency of abuse and, although possibly increasing WoE attendance due to easily procured supplies (as if GSBs weren't enough), these people still won't be logging on outside of WoE or BG to farm this -_- and the server will be as dead as ever. Two days of high attendance means jack if there's no reason to be online at any other time.

 

If these "special" pots were to be implemented, they'd have to cost at least double or even triple the badges that regular WoE whites do for the same quantity. That's if they're implemented.

 

Or hell you could just scrap BG altogether and give supplies away for free on a 5 minute cooldown. That's pretty much what happens anyway since there's no "B" in BG.

 

Edit: moved the questions to my first post in this thread.

is the fishing event supposed to sometimes just steal your bait? when are we getting the locations added for the treasure maps weve been getting?

 

another fishing question: can you re-check ayothaya to see if it's dropping rare fish?  I have been there all weekend and haven't found anything besides maps, shoes, and fresh fish.  been using both types of rods as well.

 

We checked and Ayothaya does have it's rare fish drops. You should try changing up what kinds of bait you are using! Some fish are more likely to be caught with certain bait!

 

edit: this is on the renewal server.

Who won the caption contest?

 

I believe the deadline of that got pushed back. 

 

Classic server only

 

 

Any idea how long ID3 will be in and if/when a new TI will be implemented?   (thread you suggested i make RE: new places to use for TI >_> http://forums.warppo...thly-ti-events/   )

 

Will there ever be a keybind option in this version of RO and the ability to see all of the skill bars for those of us that suck at remembering all their BM keys? (getting old now) lol xD

 

 

 

I think the patcher could possibly do with a rehaul for classic to point new players here (the forums) and to highlight patch notes and such, it took me a while to find my way here to see that it was useful and somewhat beneficial. Would that be possible?

 

The general form of the patcher cannot be easily modified, but we could add buttons and links to the forums.

Will any of theses boxes be removed from the Karfra Shop anytime soon? I'm referring to all the Shadow Boxes & the Groove Pack.

 

Yes, the shadow boxes will be going away eventually, and the groove pack will depart as scheduled.

Classic:

Will you be able to instead implement the following for potters for quality of life purposes:

 

1 Condensed White Potion Box (When opened, it gives you 200 White Potions, 200 Empty Test Tubes, 200 Witch Starsand, 200 Medicine Bowls). Have it stackable to 30,000 in storage, weight limit, something small, like 1. 

 

I don't know if I'm being too optimistic, but I think this is a reasonable alternative since you cannot modify the weight of white potions... and time-efficient for potters.

 

To get the box, have a NPC that is able to digest the materials into a box... something again, keeping time efficiency in mind where the stacker can do multiple boxes. The community or you can improve this idea, but I'm pushing for this idea from a guildmate of mine (Go sho!)

I would suggest buffing ranked slims if the bg suggestion is considered to have any merit.

Someone said something about key mapping, try using autohotkey, hotkeyboard or sharpkeys. (recommend sharpkeys)

Question: Campitor is the map ready?

 

The map is ready!

why cant you guys go after the zeny sellers outside of the game? despite their main site being possibly located out of US jurisdiction their Facebook sites are alive and kicking... why dont you target players who are members of these zeny selling and RMT facebook pages? it seems like it would be easy to do a sting operation to find out their in game names (make a deal with them and then backtrack their accounts) and then use that to bring them down?  maybe we need to make it so GMs need to do trades for MVP cards and things of high value to keep these things from getting into the hands of gold sellers...

 

The cost/benefit analysis of trying to go after zeny sellers with lawyers located out of the united states is not productive and social media sites are slow/unwilling to take action against RMT and Private server type pages.
