    6 months for the first WP? That'll defy the purpose of encouraging new players. As Mur said, the first WP is important, and I agree. I think Observer's idea is good. One WP for newbies(between 2 and three months) another for his first year, then the regular interval of receiving WPs for the second year(every 6 months), and so on..




    How can you measure loyalty by that scenario? I can just log in for one day each year and receive a WP? Or what if a veteran misses that one day? Better luck next year? I don't think so..
    And yes, you need to be online for a whole year to reap the respective reward.

    Your absolutly true. But who would log on each your to get a WP when your not playing it anyway? and indeed, veterans missing it trough christmas would be a problem...

    Rpcs? Rpcs have been disbanded for at least a month.

    And rewarding them based on how many they give out will just mean that they would give out more to increase the chances.

    Believe in humanity and that people who do the quest vote seriously about someones quest, and not to just give the maximum score. It's not only about quantity, also about quality:)

    Perhaps a rule for the rpc's

    for every 100 awarded 5 grade(valued to be a really good quest) a wishpoint for themself.,
    like this their stimulated to make more an better guest(not their not making any now,
    their already hard enough:P) and to award a lot of players.


    Buuuut this is totaly not the subject here, so I'm goign to be silence again:P

    but is there anything going to be decided?

    ps: another point: what about 1 wishpoint a year? and than given at christmas or something? this way only active people deserve it, but you wont have to be online for a whole year..

    [b]regarding alts/mains:[/b]
    an obvious problem: how do you define alt and main? is the first char always the main? what if you mainly play your second or third, will you lose out on various possibilities because the first registered account would have had the chance to do this and that?

    an example:
    at least 3 of my chars could have been considered 'mains'. the first was mainly RP, the second, was originally used to test storymode and the finer points of battle mechanics and later became my 'main' for quite some time, then 'alt'-ish again when i started playing V.


    [b]regarding alt abuse:[/b]
    an easy if inelegant solution would be to limit age based WPs to wishes that can only really benefit the activator. no use to farm alts for WPs when your 'main' can't benefit from it. you could use them for RP purposes or to test certain options/wishes, which is one of the things alts [b]can[/b] be used for.

    Well, there will be just one down side, indeed everyone's first account should count als main, meaning that only people who use another account than their first will lose a small benefit. I's just a choise you can make, no one forces you to use another account..

    ^ It's 2 heads, not 1.

    I've been attacked a lot faster than that when I encouraged newbly mp4s to get free wins against my lone tree in the sparring grounds (then dojo). Over 100 losses only while I was online that day. I think it was about half a year ago, when the xp cap was still the old one.


    Do not underestimate the power of newb swarms.

    hey, something just crossed my mind... so i have to write it down, else i'll forget about it xD

    Some time ago, the equip-weapons were changed to give a %-based boost instead of absolute numbers, and i guess that was done for a reason (namely because of massive abuse with sun god and medusa sets on alts, i think)

    What still remains unchanged, though, is the house and ally-boost, which makes newbies massively stronger, too

    With upcoming citizenship, which might or might not include house boosts for citizens, maybe those boosts should be revised, too...

    It's not too much of a problem with allies since those are pretty limited and rather role-based, even when some seats in allies seem to be taken mainly for the house-boosts and regens, but with citizenship, which will most probably be given out on a larger scale than ally-seats, people might tend to pick a land solely for the purpose of stat-boni, and the abusive character would be a lot bigger when people can't be attacked by higher mps as it happens in allies

    not for the game, but for all of us! a huge chatbox (with sections?) which we can use to chit chat all the time, without spamming the forum or being on certain places in the game(and exspecially for everyone switching mp level who can't roam free!)

    When hearing everyone and think of it more clearly, I think there is no such thing as a good abuse-proof way of doing this. so it's either life with it or don't award the wishpoints. I mean, we can let mur do a lot of extra work by checking everything manually, but that would just be sick and annoying. he's trying to do something nice, we shoulden't punish him for that..

    if there is no way Mur doesen't have to do much extra work, and no way to make it abuse-proof, than we should perhaps see of this plan, and do it the old fashion way..
