Re: Daravi Border Weekend

I can't offer an opinion about the player led units, since I played a lead, but I can give a bit of feedback about a few things. 1. Medics - Medics were definitely incredibly strong, and I was able to almost entirely mitigate attacks even from overwhelming forces just by having enough medics. None o...

Re: Steal & Stealth

I feel as though steal should take into account how large an item is in its difficulty.

Stealing coins that people leave in their first line of inventory should be relatively easy.

Stealing Lans's greatsword... not so much.

Re: Leather Armour Effectiveness vs Animals

I agree that it's a little silly to have hunters in platemail, as plate is pretty noisy and makes it tough to sneak up on this. I know this from RL experience, funnily enough. However, I'm not sure if the solution is to buff leather armor protection values against animals; I would much rather nerf t...

Re: [Poll] Alternative to seeking?

Making those a requirement to get to an active rank is basically invalidating the whole point of removing the seeking system. If the seeking system is removed.. and then we say 'okay well all the things we usually did during seeking is now required to get to an active rank', then what was the point ...

Re: [Poll] Alternative to seeking?

What's lost? The entire seeking process where the seeker or GLs find each other, have a meeting, get to know each other, the seeker finds a sponsor (unless the guild membership is low enough to require 0), and have a formal induction. In other words... hours of introductory and character establishi...

Re: [Poll] Alternative to seeking?

I was personally inducted at a higher than starting rank on two different characters, and I have personally inducted people as a GL at a higher than normal rank twice as well. In none of those instances was I an OOC friend of the GL, or was the the inductee an OOC friend of mine. In fact, to this da...

Re: [Poll] Alternative to seeking?

My opinion is that Guild promotion culture is often unnecessarily bureaucratic to begin with. Many seekers have obvious experience in the lore, mechanics, etc of the Guild they want to join. Despite this, there is a very strong culture of making sure everyone "does their time" in Ranks 1 and 2, eve...

Re: [Poll] Alternative to seeking?

I agree that seeking can be a good opportunity for RP. It also gives the guild more cohesion by having guild members interview and get to know the various seekers before they're inducted, whereas once they're in they might have less reason to communicate and form bonds with other members, depending...

Re: [Poll] Alternative to seeking?

I disapproved of this change on TI's sister game, and I don't particularly like it here. My thought is that it will cut down on GL RP of seeking out seekers and interviewing them, finding out if they're a good fit, potentially generating conflict if they aren't. I think this would only benefit guild...
