    GS population indexes much higher in mental illnesses than the standard population. There's no way players could self-manage it.

    i'm sorry what? They still put out high tier weapons at all the normal events by spinner / auction / raffle. You can also get many of those items through sizable investment if you desire to ensure it via BS / $. Those items are heavily scripted type things now, if you mean, specifically, you can't get a claidh weighted broadsword off the shelf at a random merchant that popped up in town for 200 silver that's been the case for like...25 years, might be time to let it go.

    The availability of gear that would have been considered auction quality in the past is higher than it's ever been because they realized people will shovel money into the vault for them in exchange for those things.

    I'm not sure what you mean, since the WPS system came out, the greatest WPS service offering I've seen were those "5 services" (lol) offered through spinners a few times a year. That's a whole half a point of weighting... if you have none.

    before rtcf weighting over masterfully wasn't really possible

    The system where you had 50 tickets and had to spam `Join Event` at midnight and hope you had the fastest connection, and then go to the event and win the RNG (or pay a very high premium for the incredibly limited slots) to get +10 points once every 3 years was fucking terrible.

    The current system is vastly superior, you can get 25 services fairly trivially at nearly every event with bonus silver-based services spun monthly. Everyone has nearly equal access to it relatively to the type of gear they are trying to improve and to top it off padding/weighting now live in their own slot.

    Outside of the ICE age and RtCF getting more than MCWing was unheard of really as Neimanz said and getting even HCWing on your deathdagger of Doom (let alone wizard enchanting it) was still exceptionally costly.

    Well, regardless of how bad the old system was, fact is people do have +45 point splitter axes and +50 point spears, and many other great things from those old days. THAT will never exist, with the new system. There's not even a slim chance of making something that nice anymore.

    the chances are the same as before since they never said they wouldn't offer +10 weighting again. and both those items were made after duskruin was release

    + the new wps system is for everyone instead of catering to like 10 people

    Under the old system I got padding: literally never

    Under the new system I can get padding: pretty much once per window if I want, minimum I can get it every DR

    I absolutely prefer the new way. Everyone can access it, not just the baller dozen or so.

    Well if that's the case, that would change everything. Still an awfully scaled system, but I wouldn't mind having a shot at those old style weighting services.
