  1. [quote name='(Zl-eye-f)-nea' timestamp='1294354739' post='76992'] Is it? I really don't think it is. In the alternative version of this thread that Kafuuka made [url="http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/8805-a-partial-solution-to-mp-levels-being-broken/page__p__76283#entry76283"]here[/url] I explained how by reasoning the only viable end result of this idea here is an attempt at re-populating MP5, it won't actually do anything else it claims to attempt as far as I can tell.

[quote name='Udgard' timestamp='1294289185' post='76925'] And no, people are not supposed to wait for their angiens to have max age before going mp5.. [/quote] Of course people want to age their crits before levelling. If you were new now, I'm sure you would too. All this "supposed to" and "not supposed to" is making my head hurt. The newer players who do talk oppose what is

Should I remind you about MP4s with 10k attack ? PPL this is for your own good, for MD's future. [/quote] I don't care about differences between MP3 & MP4 or MP4 & MP5. Read my words: I DON'T CARE .

  4. More restrictions in MD coming up then... MD is becoming more and more focused on literally forcing players to get to mp5 instead of letting them enjoy it their own way. One thing is sure: no matter what you do, you won't be able to force people to play MD. I'm not going to get to mp5 anyway. If I'm forced to do so against my will I'll simply stop playing MD (like many others did). I guess that I wouldn't be the only person doing so. But now I'm just going to get rid of my younger Angiens and only keep the oldest as a collector's value.

  5. I wasn't supposed to post any message in this section again, but... I still care about what happens to MD so here goes. I strongly dislike the idea of that kind of requirement. I don't have any alts myself and I'm not going to create one ever. I have only my main account and that's really enough. And that should be enough for most of the players. In my opinion, the true problem which leads to alt abuse is the existence of alts. Seriously, how many alts were actually meant for creating another character for role playing needs? 10 percent? Doubt it, probably even less. All the rest is used f

  6. [quote name='Kafuuka' timestamp='1294439122' post='77075'] I thought the dojo got replaced by the sparring grounds and that the times of 'oh noes i got attacked' were long gone? But suppose it is not, who is giving this people those tips? I don't, none of the real mp3s or mp4s could, unless they have been here long enough to have figured out what to train and by then they're not real noobs anymore anyway.

  7. [quote name='Ravenstrider' timestamp='1294402159' post='77024'] But one thing is different: No protection on mp5... And most can't handle it... That's what's different... And, no, I don't believe it's a joke, it's just that people get used to one form of training and then, pow, mp5 and it's a different story... And they go: Oh, darn... I'm not protected any more...[/quote] That's an argument against dojos/sparring grounds/etc., though, not an indictment of life at MP5. Many of us who have been around for a long time remember being crushed by vets constantly. If you care enough, you find a wa

  8. I believe the system is fine as it is and that this isn't a very good idea for multiple reasons. If someone wants a strong alt, they will make it... Why? Superior knowledge... If one can afford himself a drachorn on an alt, why not a fully tokened pimpy? It's not that hard to almost max your principles on let's say mp4 and not reach the cap... God bless the park protection... Should we limit the level on grassans as well? But they only have three and it's not that hard to reach the max level on mp3... for anyone, not just alts... You won't solve anything with this... It could only make t

Firstly you see that the post has been made by RPC's which no longer exist, so you use the topic anyway to bring an abuse to light... ok ish. Disrespect on Lhos? Just becase dst is an lho, doesnt mean her every action is labled as a lho, she surely has to stand up to a higher level of intorrogation of her actions but im sure it would have been easier to pm grido if you are that worried about the Lho's name. Also if you are so worried, why are you highlighting an issue with them, further bringing their name "down" a

    On the dangers of being offtopic..I don't play alts, one of the reason is my commitment to only one account, and the second actually being how harsh it is as an MP3. I made one, but sadly missed the ID I was aiming for back then, still, the few minutes I occasionally used it made me agonize in the thought of training creatures and things, the sheer mass of time needed to invest until the account would be on a similiar level to Shadowseeker. I mean, just a comparison- how many replied to this, while how many bothered to reply to Ungern? He's quite a bright newbie it seemed, from what I go

  16. The time has come for the stories to be read to me. So far, the majority of people who have posted here have succeeded in doing just that, with Malaikat Mut and Aysun still to go. The deadline for reading to me is two weeks from today. In addition, if you write a story between now and then, you may still read it to me and you will be considered for the reward. This quest is more about literary skill than deadlines - I trust that you can follow directions, there is no need to test that. The reward will be given to who I think had the best story. Yes this is subjective, but keep in min

  18. By no means do i want to discourage general population to be picky about the requirements. I just asked Mur to take a general stand. Because i want to know if he finds such account inappropriate or not. I am indeed fairly certain that i won't be able to find a non-alt mp3 with a drachorn, or an angien over lvl 2. You're right that angiens make nice quest rewards, but they most definitely won't reach lvl 3 on a plain, normal mp3 account, simply due to the age requirement on them. Other than that, no, Kyphis, restricting creatures doesn't make things worse. I have done serious combat for a

  19. And where does this idea leave Alliance members? I'm not a fan of this idea. As most of you know, I have spent an exceptional amount of time at each of the MP levels (except two, that was about 3 days to try out illusions then hurry on), but I plan to be MP5 at the end of January so this plan wouldn't effect me. So why do I dislike this idea? Kafuuka. Tipu. Zleiphener. Many other people who are not causing any sort of problem, and are quite happy to play all the OTHER parts of MD as MP4. If this restriction had been in place from the day I had joined, I would not be an MP5 right now

  20. Clearly, passing aged crits onto your low level alts is an abuse, you arn't supposed to trade crits between alts - there is even a built in function to stop it that you have to go around. Don't kid a kidder. If this is the problem then why isnt this being looked into instead of trying to change the entire system? Z

  21. [quote name='Udgard' timestamp='1293635657' post='76276'] AFAIK alt abuse is making alts simply to benefit your main. Transferring creatures from mains to alts does not seem like alt abuse to me, unless it is done only to age them and send them back to the main. [/quote] And who decides which alt is the 'main'? Alt abuse is the valid term whenever one uses an alt to get an unfair advantage on another alt. 99% of the time the alt that benefits is the alt we would call the main, however it's not a requirement.

The bigger issue is then that these mp3/4's are being taught to not go to mp5, and specially train certain things up without learning why. Which is something i would say is encouraged by some mp4's [/quote] According to Burns that is not what this thread is about. As for being encouraged and/or discouraged, that happens on all levels, by all levels and across all levels. The mp5s are scaring people by posting negative mp5 related threads on the forum. They are encouraging to l

  24. [quote name='(Zl-eye-f)-nea' timestamp='1294354739' post='76992'] I'd agree, and I'd go further. Some people who have MP5 accounts also don't support it. Z [/quote] I'm mp5, and I don't support the proposal. Back when I was mp4; I didn't notice any superpowered people except Nadrolski and Lazarus, neither of which were going around and terrorizing other mp4s. Don't fix what isn't broken. I personally was able to get my angiens to pre-max level at the end of mp4,btw. It felt wonderful. Don't take that away.

  26. Mp3/4 wouldnt be afraid of mp5 if people didnt continually say they will be pounded when they arrive. The fact is they will be, but everyone is... If you want everyone to wait to mp4 then the problem will merely move down there. I have been mp5 for a massive amount of time, didnt bother waiting at mp4 because at that time, you would be beaten up in any mindpower. This was because anyone could attack anyone. You learnt how to set def rits that would only lose that crit as you needed to learn. Now people come to mp5 and are surprised that people attack them without asking Gasp! Its an eventu

  27. [quote name='Udgard' timestamp='1294289185' post='76925'] You're supposed to stay mp4 just for a while, to age/upgrade some creatures to prepare for mp5. Once you've aged your creatures, go and move on to mp5. And no, people are not supposed to wait for their angiens to have max age before going mp5..[/quote] Rubish. There is no statement anywhere that says you are supposed to become mp5 at all, let alone that you are supposed to 'only stay mp4 for a while', whatever the heck a while might be defined as. I think the most official statement by Mur is 'not everybody has the patience to reach m

  28. WARNING: Long post below!!! [quote name='I am Bored' timestamp='1293647247' post='76307'] I would agree with most of the things on here, except the bit about MAGIC ctc's, because those are hard to get as it is, and should be allowed to be an exception to the rule. I must also dissagree with no one's suggestion, because lowering creatures like that would cause other problems as well, because you would be reducing the xp of an mp4, to far below the level of an mp3, and that would allow for even more building of powerful creatures at a lower mind power level.

  36. @Burns: Once again I reiterate that I do not think your proposal is effective to stop or even diminish the pwning of noobs. Alts have access to better training schemes, better ritual knowledge and better creatures. Your proposal is to cut down a small part of the better creature department. A 'typical' mp3 according to the mp3 to mp4 half life time of about one week, will not be able to naturally age an elemental to max level. That infamous nightmare ritual is not even an option unless they either trade for an aged elemental. Except they don't know what they would need it for nor do they know

  37. Due to once again increasing problems, i, again, want to propose an idea to stop alts from bashing on newbies. Since GGG ceased, there are only minor problems with monstrous stats left, and people now take their massively aged, tokened and traded creatures and transfer them to mp3 to create new god accounts. So now, instead of banning certain creatures from certain mps, i'd like to implement MP-level as an upgrade requirement for creatures in general. The most important to me appear to be angiens, which should get requirement mp4 for level 3+ and mp5 for level 6+, drachorns, with mp4 for
