    EQ TLP - Mischief (Free Trade / Random Loot)

    There's a server idea: -Classic/Kunark enabled at launch... with Luclin AAs, mobs are adjusted to have resists/AC/ATK that mirrors the inclusion of AAs accordingly. Honestly, just harder content in general for Classic -> PoP would be great that extends beyond raid targets would be amazing.

    1k people means an entire streamer basically controls a server. Maybe that's Amazon's intent; who knows.

    They were keeping it at 500 before. 500 CCU seems like a grand mistake, but 1000 isn't much better. Hopefully that's a community manager fucksie wucksie, and we end up with the 10,000 that Amazon originally wanted.

    I was part of the Bear Caves red group. That was some USDA Organic, Free Ran fun. EQ needs more of those condensed experiences. Those were more fun than actually playing pvp on that server.

    Fucking THIS! This is what the best fun in EQ is. When I tell people to go outside that are in the raid scene, it's so that they may someday come back from out there and have appreciation for the simpler parts of EQ like this. Game is an absolute blast to play in smaller numbers. I can't fathom...

    EQ TLP - Mischief (Free Trade / Random Loot)

    Who cares. Instanced content means you have a set benchmark for progression - ie; number of players to complete content. Daybreak should put Phinny at something like 12 players, Nagafen/Vox at 24. OW content only exists to serve people who want to zerg poor, defenseless raid...

    EQ TLP - Mischief (Free Trade / Random Loot)

    Why do you even care what I use my time for? I had my fun. My opinion is still valid and logical regardless of my time spent in a game with a specific group of players. I quit playing because I had an actual job to do, and the game was taking too much of my time. If you weren't paying...

    EQ TLP - Mischief (Free Trade / Random Loot)

    Completely agree, and the snails pace in which TLPs play out has a big impact on how quickly EQLive devs can iterate on content. I think truebox TLPs should: - Start in Kunark, end after LDoN. All expansions are a 2-month unlock, with the exception of PoP, which combines LoY/LDoN as a single...

    No, I meant you can't play the server without random loot/free trade enabled. Mischief was (is still) amazing. Need more innovations like that. Edited post.

    EQ TLP - Mischief (Free Trade / Random Loot)

    Daybreak should do a permadeath PVE server with an Agnarr ruleset + roguelike mechanics w/ Mischief random loot. Attacks that instantly kill you (ie; HT) will not cause permadeath. Death under any other circumstance, even if intentionally trained, would cause permadeath, and your corpse would...

    That's the purpose of GM enforced rotations - for everyone to see content. If you establish GM-enforced rotations and a guild states, "I want to do The Rathe Council" and there's another guild in line, the other guild gets it when it next spawns, has a set period of time to clear it, and then it...

    This is a huge problem currently, and I cannot understate how important it is to realize the scope of how important this will be moving forward. Gameplay programmers are dime a dozen.

    You don't always need database auditing if the game's code is written correctly to begin with.

For example, looting a creature, crafting an item, completing a quest...

    Yes. It was wildly inconsistent though. Just based on what I read, not what I experienced - there were GMs or Guides who would make those rulings on the spot. GM-enforced rotations were actually commonplace on other servers if two guilds could not get along. I recall GMs despawning mobs if two...

    Final Fantasy XIV (Guide in first post)

    I really wish stuff like this was baseline. I shouldn't have to install XIVLauncher to get an enjoyable experience. Stuff like XIVCombos should, quite honestly, be baseline in the game client. I hope Endwalker addresses that.

    Final Fantasy XIV (Guide in first post)

    I hope Endwalker brings a form of defensive target to the game for healers. It would be a huge QOL change - especially for stuff like Healers/Tanks. Imagine casting Cover on a target you need to while still having the boss targeted. It feels so clunky without that defensive target mechanic.

    If you're asked to do a 'boxing test', good luck. The issue isn't the automatic detections, it's the culture P99 cultivates where you are compelled to feel at a disadvantage because you're not cheating and someone else reports you. You'll also probably have zero negotiation for you ban, too...
