Thread: The 925 Clusterfuck

  1. Default

    We're mostly intelligent people here. I am good faith too by saying they got bright people at simu too.

    I am under the impression Wyrom gave 2 conditions for 925 tweaking: annihilate pocket wizards AND put a grinding system related to the amount of skills you have (the higher skills = better at getting essence).

    Why those 2 conditions? Objectivaly, it's to answer to a 2019 condition: MOST PEOPLE ARE LAZY AND ARE WILLING TO PAY TO SAVE TIME

    It's a marketing concept a lot of companies know: people would rather pay to save time than to do it themselves.

    I find those 925 changes to fall completely in that concept WITH the elimination of the pocket wizard ( therefore, forcing an effort in time to enchant).

    The current dev crew is all about making things super slow and tedious. And being held accountable for anything at all doesn't exist, so they literally just do whatever the fuck they want no matter how trash it is for the game.

    If this is to punish table wizards, where is that exact same feelings towards pocket clerics, empaths, bards etc? Should they not also be required to build some form of energy to perform their services?

    Plain and simple, they are cannibalizing their customers time investments so they can bilk them for more money.

    Congrats, you have reached level 25. You now have a spell you can't use.
    As far as I know, Naos's testing consisted of running a script with unlimited mana and it took him 8 hours to hit the weekly cap.

    He also has no idea what his lore setup was during this per his own words on Discord, because he's such a pro and all.

    I think Naos means well. The problem is he's still stuck in GS3 where everything has to be a super secret formula because reasons, and follows the same general retarded make-everything-slow-and-tedious-and-boring-as-fuck-because-that's-how-we-did-it-playing-pen-and-paper-rpgs-and-by-golly-we-loved-it thought process that people like Doug and Krakii are all about.

    I'm pretty sure Krakii's rl job is to just read the forums, because he's in every thread in every folder every day posting retarded shit about how the way things worked in 1993 is somehow still relevant today.

    I doubt Wyrom was involved in the dev process for 925 at all. He's pretty hands off with dev for the most part.

    At least Wyrom had the good grace to stay in his lane. The lane of being a useless PM.

    It was genuinely worrisome when he expressed surprise at someone's figure at how much demand there was for plain 4x noob gear in their shop. Also equally worrisome that he seemed confused that someone would refer to their lvl 96 wizard that they no longer hunted on as worthless after this update.

    It's like he means well, but the autism just prevents him from understanding common sense expectations and such the players have. Or he did understand, and was just being passive aggressive. Who knows.

    "why would you want to know how much energy you have?"

    fucking what?

    Side note, being fixskilled to lolenchanter build to dump all my infused pots (509 + 414 + rest in wizard) before the grace period is hilarious when you spell people up.

    multicasting 9 (lol) for mne/ mje, but 1 cast of blurs and your ass is SET from here to eternity.

    Do you want to be corrected in an email? Because this is how you get corrected in an email.
    You had better pay your guild dues before you forget. You are 113 months behind.

    Possibly. But Matic's reply seems to have ejected him from the thread:
    <<<<I corrected him in email.>>

    It was given the attention it deserves. Which was being deleted without opening. I'm sure the treatise it contained on how Lord Whosemajunkit dealt with Enchant True back in '89 was super helpful to the discussion. My loss.
