    i know this is an old idea, but

    I propose this...
    a reset of the game that entails this
    1. bring down the game for a short while
    2. add more land area and balance the game out
    3. restart the game with everyone starting over
    4. get bonus favor at the rate of 1 favor per lvl of your old character

    i want to know what the general gaming community thinks of this idea
    54
    reset good

    reset bad

    ...no. Unless I get my character back JUST the way he was, nope, no, and absolutely not. The T5 and T6's are so close to reaching *gasp* T7...I'm getting stronger only because I have someone to catch up to. Delete everything and there'll be no purpose.

    I say leave it as it is. The GMs are making great progress right now, no need to delete.

        the game needs some serious overhaul in the social/wanderer power balance and if you notice all the top socials are either some part leader or some part builder with only a few exceptions

        as far as the socials are concerned the game is become exceedingly stale... all the major clans have no need for new players except mabye to boost the leaders favor gain...
        i starting a new char with a temp account just for amusement and asked around for help in the game and what castes/classes were needed

        there is very little help for the new players it seems and i was flat out told that all the clans dont need any thing anymore and to just make what i wanted and strike out on my own for a while

        new builders are screwed flat out.. all the lair are built and 1-2 trappers are already well embedded in every clan so that rules out that class

        new leaders are screwed due to no clans are taking them either

        the only caste that seems to gain any attention from the leaders was shaman

          Just a few problems.

          1. bring down the game for a short while
          2. add more land area and balance the game out
          3. restart the game with everyone starting over
          4. get bonus favor at the rate of 1 favor per lvl of your old character
          First, the game should be balanced as we play. When we transfered from Beta to Gold, a lot of things changed that had no player testing. A lot of things that weren't tested in Beta were over looked for that very reason. The GM's only have a limited amount of ability to test and find bugs in the game, we as player are the main source of finding bugs, glitches, abusable mechanics, and general flaws. Balancing the game out without players to test, report and feedback is a bad idea. It leads to a 'balanced' game that just needs to be fixed once players start fooling around with mechanics and such.

          So once the game is much more balanced than it is at the current time, I would be all for a reset as long as nothing changed from the time when the game was brought down to the time it was put back up. That means no 'tweaks' in between that time. The idea of 1 favor per level is alright, although there are a few people who are maxed out now, and it might cheat them a little/lot.

            You're right here. Builders are screwed, not only because there's nothing for them to do once the lair is built, but also because they are probably the biggest risk factor. Them and teleporters are the two biggest, other than that, there are no risk factors on a clan's teleporter defense.

            Each clan really only needs 5 builders.
            1. Matriarch/Builder--Specialty: Advanced Structures
            2. <specialist>/Leader--Specialty: Basic Structures
            3. Prospector/Leader--Specialty: Mining
            4. Trap Master/Leader--Specialty: Basic Traps
            5. Sapper/Leader--Specialty: Basic Traps/Demolitions.

            new leaders are screwed due to no clans are taking them either
            This really depends on the role. Each clan needs 2 pure leaders, and 1 leader/warrior to lead their minions. First leader is a Tyrant, usually, though Despot could fill this role. The second is a Chieftain or a Soverign to take on builders. These would take bureaucracy, warmonger, spirituality, mentor, dungeonmastery, hoarding, and maybe the Magical skill. The leader/warrior, though more could be used to give the pure warriors a little bit of variety, with 3 different roles (Tyrant/Warrior, Savage/Leader, Hunter/Leader), working fairly well for this. These would take most of the combatant skills, such as Inspire, Intimidate, Mentor, Battlecry, and Warmonger. I'm still looking for a pure leader, but it has to be a specific pure leader who I can also lay some of the administrative traits on. I'm also looking for a leader/warrior to work on warmonger.

            The problem comes with trying to balance the desires of the minions, with the need for the leaders to have minions to boost FP. This is also why I don't suggest much over 5 minion leaders within the clan. Get much over 5 leaders, and you'll have a hard time trying to keep everybodys FP gain up enough.

            the only caste that seems to gain any attention from the leaders was shaman
            Usually Warriors, Magicals, and Shaman will be taken gladly with any clan.

              The only way I'd want a reset is if they got rid of the language filter and centered their attention to the actually important issues, like leader bonuses, the wanderer/social issues, and

              *hinthint*

              The bug with the custom items.

              P.S I voted yes to a reset.

                Changed my mind...

                On second thought..wipe it all clean..Get rid of lvls,places,people,things...get rid of it all...Scrap the whole freakin game..Its a lost cause...Players dont try to keep the community going,GM(one mainly) is trying to drive off players...and its working...way to go...took away the one place where me and my friends can just talk "freely"..even a 100% OOC grumble cant be left alone...Good...lets all just pack it up and go play PS2 or Xbox,because this wonderful original game is doomed....

                    I do not think that we need a reset. Get everything balanced and fixed, and we won't have much need for one. And with everything balanced and fixed, there will likely be more players, which means more clans, which means places for the newlings.

                          I concur with the idea of a reset, on only one condition.
                          That condition being, that instead of a half-assed "quick fix", that the game go down for some time and the fixes are lasting and do not create new problems. Of course, this would be impossible as someone is always likely to feel they are getting screwed.

                            A reset is enough to make just about everyone feel like they're getting screwed. That's partially why I love the idea!

                              My Half-Cent

                              Ok. First off, usually my stuff shouldn't be taken seriously, because I am a fool and may just not think everything through. That said, my half-cent:

                              A reset I consider would be good. Once the things are completely fixed (And maybe make it a tad bit easier to get favors at really high levels) they game hould blank out for a day or something, and when it starts back up the characters can come on back. All accounts should get ALL the favors they invested/had in their bank on something OTHER than favored structures should get these favors back. All SP should also be given back, even invested SP.

                              Obviously, I am probably going to be flamed for my thoughts, but what the ! Go ahead.
