    Yeah, Final Fantasy started as a D&D game, but this is a FF reference. I also saw someone say they wanted a white mage in server chat two days ago.

    And then "we need a blue mage" and blablabla.
    Go play Final Fantasy if you want Final Fantasy content.

    How? Is there a real analysis behind that? Because I don't understand how the players who can't be bothered paying $10 will bring money.

    You know nothing. There's no large amount of players mad at you for this being just teasing. You're just seeing a few hyped players who all have their own ideas of what would happen, you just get carried away by your enthousiastic imagination. Just like the developpers of games like Darkfall or Mortal online actually believed there were players interested in their turds. The day your system would be implemented, it would go wrong and immediately all the players who you thought were behind you would start to make their own threads on what to modify to be actually the super awesome harcore PvP experience.

    He's saying goodbye, and that the game is still great even if he quits. Yet another forum warrior goes on the defensive and interpret it as a demand to change the game.

    Sounds like a "Yew Gate" channel. UO players know what I mean. The most stupid form of PvP, for people who are far too bored.
    I love how people keep reinventing fail concepts. There are always "hardcore PvPers" to suggest those. Eventually, there are some game devs who "know better what's good for the best game ever" who actually make a fail game out of them. And as they fail, the players think that's because they didn't stay true to the original fail ideas, they never learn and continue to ask for the same stupid ideas.
    Just like Dremlock, I would greatly welcome such channels just for the laugh at the expense of the tough boys around here.

    Except it's possible to absorb the distance bonus and bargain by a lower difference between % buy price and % sale price. And of course you don't show how much silvers these trades did, so no, it doesn't prove anything about silvers.

    You are really the biggest liar in this forum. You can only do it on purpose, there's no way otherwise. You say things so stupid, it's incredible.
    This Plunge guy is trying to make us believe he doesn't know that you buy and sell the npc items at a price that fluctuates with time, depending on the node. He plays dumb. This is why nobody cares about your tests, man, if they even exist. Your tests don't prove you are right because you don't show the profits you made.
    You are so low in your mud that you accuse me of selling less items on the first run. You invoke the weight used is different. Well, here's something new for you new player, npc items have different weights. When I bought 14 items at Olvia, they weren't the same items that I bought in Western Guard Camp. GENIUS.
    Just go away now. There's been enough test to show it's not only quantity. You are wrong, and you won't admit it ever so go live in your fantasy world where you are always right. We don't need you here. Goodbye.

  11. zhagsten added a post in a topic WE DEMAND TRANSPARENCY   

    War, we probably don't live in dire wilds, that's why we don't care about range finders or even shooting.
    However, in case you are playing BDO, it's not a game where stats are totally hidden. You open your character, your inventory, you hover your mouse over an item... you'll see numbers everywhere. If you call that immersion or whatever, that's weird.
    In the early days, Ultima Online was hiding stats. You would identify a magic item, it would says something like "Supremely Accurate Katana of Vanquishing". It meant it had a weapon skill bonus (+ chance to hit) and a damage bonus. It wasn't written anywhere. BDO is no way near that. There are stats everywhere. Which means it's absurd not to explain them.

    It won't be the same % sell price at the end. Do you even trade?
    I would gladly make a video, but it would be more than 20 mins and I don't have a connection with a decent upload rate. I give you the screenshots, I tell you what I did. If you don't want to believe me, you'll always find an excuse. The two first screenshots were taken after the transaction when leaving town (you can see the autopath), the last one being the end of the test trip, I didn't buy new items there, just took the screenshot after the transaction.
    You are absolutely dishonest and that is disgusting.

  13. zhagsten added a post in a topic Power level trade (help)   

    I don't care about your tests, because it can be altered by the price of the items. Are you dense?
    Here are the unaltered screenshots : http://imgur.com/a/3SVkA
    To be able to see a difference, I have insisted on the buy price and sell price. Because that's what makes a difference of exp, not the distance itself. And you can test it with Imperial Delivery, as 250% sell price guarantees better exp.
    It's NOT solely on quantity. The profits have an influence. And distance bonus has a small influence by consequence, it's just not worth it.

    I tested it.
    14 npc items.
    Western Guard Camp to Olvia (is that more than 500m?): +3% exp
    14 new npc items. Remark the similarity of the quantity.
    Olvia to Trent: +5% exp (of the same level of course)
    How do you explain that, mister Master Trader 3000++ backed up by GM claims? How can two trade routes with the same quantity of items give a different amount of exp if the exp gained is solely based on quantity.
    A fantastic amount of bullshit if you want my opinion. You leveled up your trade skill the best way (short trips) by mistake. Congratulations.

    No no no, that's not what I meant lol
    It's only harrassment when it's repeatedly on the same person, and that person has tried everything to avoid it, when it's really a personal grief that goes beyond just playing the game. If you kill every roleplayer without distinction, it's not harrassment. It's a good thing even, GM gives you a good point for no discrimination.
