    Psst, Holly... hate to burst your bubble gnomes... but the company is going to be shutdown if you don't wise up!

    It seems the pvp web pages shows in this case the total number of characters/toons that have appeared on the server. Number of actual players however is a different story as it would appear there are lots of alts.

    Can you run a second account and constantly kill your other toon for fame and fortune ?

    Yes, people are rolling 5-6 accounts, or other people's account for that matter. Farming their toon on the top 15 leaderboard, then selling/collection the coin rewards to get the pvp reward for killing the top 15. Which btw, is a broken blue stat item where no other blue stat is available on the server.

    Great design.

    Even if you have the box unchecked in your character window it still shows up on the website/program to check, which is really rustling some jimmies.

    AAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.... sorry, cannot stop laughing... this is so typical of DBG... just throw something together and not even plan or think it through.

    The exploits this game had over the years are staggering. I am sure some of my "old tricks" still works to this day.

    It's in the nagafen launch announcement. You cannot opt out of census.

    It's the murder server. Having a running list of where everyone is at all times would definitely lead to lots of murder. Working as intended?

    See, this is funny.

    You have people spending $50-$75/month + Exp pots, so they can farm kills, so they can can get an op pvp item, so they can win at pvp.

    And people wonder why EQ2 pvp servers fail.

    It is a really good design for collecting cash and farming human nature :) Someone is going to get there bonus for this effort.

    How does that phrase go? "There's one born every minute"...

    Or you sell the item for Krono and not spend $X/month.

    True enough.

    Same cssh-grab result for DBG, and players who like to win this way also benefit.

    Edit:

    One can not help but chuckle.

    Kander went out of his way to point out that overtuned disco exp was an exploit by the players.

    And yet, farming toons to gain an advantage in pvp seemingly isn't.

    So, it appears that cheating is really only cheating if it cheats the cash shop :)

    Longdale likes to manipulate, including appearances. Candor is likely to her, counter productive.

    Like politicians, do you know how to tell if a DBG spokesperson is lying?





    Their lips are moving! *grins malevolently*

    Feldon, if I went too far, delete the post, sir.

    I used to play on Veeshan back in the day. I ran in to FoH from time to time and they were always cool with me personally. That was almost 20 years ago, though, and Holly doing an AMA with them now is... well, it doesn't look good to me. Kind of like a couple of old friends trapped in an elevator together smelling their own farts and asking each other for their opinions on the scent.
