The unfairness of the merge and the solution

12 posts in this topic

Posted

So we're getting a merge and people who hoarded items from events on all servers even if they didn't play actively or level up actively characters on those servers are going to get a massive power boost for no reason or effort at all, that's really unfair, and the solution is easy.

- Make people choose which characters from which server they will keep and which items from which server they will keep.

- Make people choose the server from which they will keep their character/items and the rest is deleted.

- Make people choose a server and the items on other server will become bound to the family.

There are plenty of ways to make it fair, equaly good or equaly bad but right now this merge is going to be plain unfair, think and fix that.

How bout you take a leap off of a bridge buddy, you think your idiotic solution is fair? How bout the fact you and your friends, because I know your friends are butthurt because you either were too stupid or lazy to plan for the future. So how is it fair that I have characters level 50+ on other servers and actively played them, and now you think I should lose all of my time and effort? Thats what is wrong with todays society, everyone is a bunch of cry babies and cannot handle the fact that no matter what, there will be players ahead of others forever, some people are just more dedicated than others.

Yeah cause the only suggestion I made was to delete everything but the stuff you had on one server riiiight, I absolutly made no other suggestion riiiight, and I absolutly pretend that my solutions are the fairest of them all : "There are plenty of ways to make it fair, equaly good or equaly bad", sounds to me like you were born with little prostiwhore syndrome.

No, no, and no. Maybe the event items, yeah. But you can't pretend it's "fair" to discredit other player's grinding and gathering on another server. In the end, the way the event handled is the problem. It should've been choose one server to get the items on. It's too late now.

I don't have an opinion, I just feel like adding my two cents, which is:

I see a whole lot of sniping and complaining, not a lot of suggesting alternatives, so lay off peoples. Some people may just not have the knowledge to share your perspective.

I agree with this. I don't care if people keep the contribution, silver, gold ingots obtained from leveling, etc. from other servers, but merging event items such as boss gear and golden items, is a huge mistake. @CM_Aethon

Making only event items bound to the family is a good solution, also I read some people suggesting splitting the characters on different servers into different accounts.

The problem with making the event item family bound is that some people have sold or will sell their event items ahead of time. Need to force people to choose one server before merge and let customer service deal with the special circumstances by looking at playtime on the servers. If a player has like 200 hours on one server and 2 hours on another than its obvious they only used the other server for the attendance rewards.

 

Some people may avoid this by playing more than 2 hours on a server to make it look like they actively played on it, which is where it may get complicated, so CS will have to look at when that playtime occurred (in the last week before announcement for example is suspicious). At least this way it will get most people who abused the system.

Just split the accounts and give them the ability to move all of there pearl items to 1 account if they want. They get to keep what the "earned" and the new players and others wont get screwed while not making the game any more unfair or unbalanced.
