    If at any point you joined a city or guild you lose all claim to a neutral tether and the only way to have that is to have been 100% rogue before tethers went in and -not- use a class that is tied to either tether.

    In short, what MJ said. Neutral doesn't exist, and trying to play a neutral character tends to result in choices forced down your throat or being hunted by one side or the other. Game isn't designed for it, socio-political environment in the game isn't designed for it, milestones are not mechanically designed for it.

    Edit: As to the class thing, I had a conversation recently where I was told even if you're rogue, Syssin defaults to shadow tether because of where the class/guild is based. If Monk doesn't default to spirit, then it makes no sense at all how the coding is done since Monk is part of Duiran.

    Pet peeve of the day: Wardens cannot customise ancestors but Carnifex can customise warhounds. :/

    Yeah! Wardens should be able to customize ancestors!

    ...And Indorani should be able to customize bone helms.

    I really am sorry, but you must have me confused with someone else. I really don't fight. Not newbs, not lowbies. I don't gank. I don't noose. Last time I noosed someone was during a Capture the flag event (I think, atleast it was at a team contest event thingie a decade or so ago). I've never had a bounty on Konn's head. He's been enemied to organizations, sure, but I am pretty sure Illidan has been as well, so that doesn't count. I think you are aiming your anger about these actions towards the wrong person. Who? I really don't know, but it's not me. I don't do that. I leave when lowbies attack at lessers I am handling myself, because I. Don't. Fight. So if you called Konn a coward because you think I have done those things, and it was an honest mistake, well.. apologize to me and I will apologize to you. But I still think you need an attitude check in general, cause you really come off as rude both icly and oocly. Icly, you can blame on rp. Not sure what you wanna blame it on oocly though.

    Also, I never said that you said "become great leaders -overnight-". Those are your words. Not mine.

    I think players should stop equating in game interactions to out of character ones and learn some separation, as that's precisely what you did. Also, it was my job to keep track of people who hunted the protected cities of Enorian as Knight Marshall. It was a long time ago, yes, but never do I forget the reasons behind character interactions. Konnorn was definitely one of those people, and of course it's well known that you're not a 'fighter'. That still doesn't immunize you from consequences from real fighters based on your actions. Konnorn was always the type to do things he knew would warrant PK cause and cry afoul when those consequences came back knocking.

    I will not apologize to an adult because they took being called a coward in game incredibly personally on an OOC level.

    You hit this one right on the nail. 90% of players tend to forget, confuse and assume that the character is the reflection of the player behind the character and that is something no one should -ever- stoop to. I know for example like, my CHARACTER is extremely vibrant, playful and poke fun at his enemies. However, myself the player-I'm not like that all because I 100% keep separate my character's actions from the real life me. So again, people need to stop associating the character as the player in any IC situation, it's just...bad roleplay skills.

    What has and will always be a pet peeve of mine - people weaponizing ignore for IC actions.

    My biggest peeve is with the crafting system. On a couple of occasions I have had designs that were rejected because, while grammatically correct, the phrasing was a bit awkward. I wish to give the benefit of the doubt to the "gnome" who rejected it and say they were just trying to help, but that isn't their job. I have also had conflicting reasons for rejection in the notes of some designs. While one says to make a change, I make it, and then I'm told that it is now incorrect and it needs to be how it was originally. I would really like it if the people going over these were given a short test of 'what is acceptable to deny for' before being given the ability.

    Pet peeve - Having real good in character reasons not to offer to an active God, and can't get blessings because the God I offer to instead is inactive.

    I could sect but I don't really fancy fighting the same two people several times a day - every day - until we all just get sick to the back teeth of one another..

    Gonna echo this and add my own frustration to receiving a progression task that involves getting top 20 in sect, which means I'd have to fight the same 2-3 people over and over until I manage to scrape out a W or a draw enough for me to complete said task.

    Miss me with that unicorns.


    Tell me how I'm doing!

    I agree. Sect ranking shouldn't ever be a requirement for org progression. Maybe an option, but not a requirement. My experience with Sect ranking (overall, not seasonal) suggests the system is super busted - it doesn't reward improvement over time nearly as much as just being good to begin with. I don't mean to be rude to whoever's responsible for developing it, but I strongly suspect its statistical model is flawed. As such, asking people to achieve a certain rating or standing (as opposed to the ranks that are just related to numbers of matches) is extraordinarily unfair.
    If it was like, brackets, I don't mind. Or if even half of the "You sense 35 sect members are in the realms currently" were actually active, I'd be willing to do it. But the way it currently is doesn't inspire a lot of participation because it's basically just Dourif, Azami and Mazzion who do it on the regular. Which, hey, nothing against them, they've definitely refined their 1v1 abilities but it's real discouraging when you will probably need to lose 100 times before you see 1 victory to even let you know you're headed in the right direction. I'm not a betting man, but those are some real god-awful odds.

    So far as I'm aware, a fair bit of the people in sect that aren't active are in for some form of requirement for an organization. Most of them probably don't drop out of sect because it's a regularly tracked progress thing or they simply forgot to leave. No telling.

    Brackets could be interesting but how would you arrange them? So many wins to move up a bracket or a specific win/loss ratio? While the idea has merit, I'm going to go with it probably needs to be fleshed out, and if people are willing to, probably have it's own thread done up to discuss things with how it could be changed.

    Why Warhound Suck:tm:
    -no other class has to play a time gated, RNG minigame to get their class skills
    -if you want to skip the minigame, it's hundreds of thousands of gold (see above re: no other class)
    -If you wanna play the minigame, its iteration time is abysmal and can't be shortened
    -The minigame is unwinnable.

    But seriously: more stone production! How is stone more rare than gold or elemental ash??

    Gold and elemental ash aren't used to expand player-purchased houses.

    I know the mechanical reasons why. Just kind of an ic look. 
  • AyastiaAyastia Member Posts: 209 ✭✭✭
    And why is there only like 10 of them in the whole game?!

    Yeah, the stone this is absurd. I didn't even want any to build a house, just to make a statue. I had such a hard time finding even TWO stone.
