An overall 50% nerf in training time would be great. If you are sitting fighting pointless mobs for the sole purpose of training a skill it really kills the fun. And they should just get rid of the need for impunity and faith in my opinion. The vast majority of players certainly don't enjoy it.

General Discussion / Losing Lily..Why does arctic hate fun?
« Last post by Shannow on October 17, 2017, 02:35:08 PM »
Yeah this is a complaint. I'm bapting 41, I play this game for fun, I don't have time all day to play. I'm about to legend and due to some bad luck I lost my holy status on my DK.

Really? Resetting my inspire back to awful? From excellent? Plus knocking back some other random skills down a couple of levels? What for? So I can hate you?

Take ranks off my dragons, lose my spells. These things are a pain but I can accept. Having to spend all this time doing what is ALREADY THE LEAST FUN PART OF THE GAME, aka skills training, is shitty design.

Something needs to change overall with skills imho, but right now the penalty for Lily loss is simply too great.

Btw I went back and looked 3 years ago I posted about skills training taking too long and being anti fun, hasn't changed much.

See, that is where your unfamiliarity with the game comes to shine. The foundation of the mud isn't your PK. It's fairness and balance. Each subsequent revision to the core code was to make classes and gear more balanced, to make the game stronger and to persevere throughout the years. It has at that in over 20 amazing years. The Overlords saw what a small clan did with it's win at all costs nonsense and found that careful balance was being destroyed by players, not their efforts. So by the looks of it, they changed PK to prevent further damage your antics was causing.

How do you deal with a nobash cleric? You wait until it runs out of spells! You learn to play the game better and bring a better balance of classes to the kill. Ever heard of sustain? No, I didn't think so, but longer fights are more fun. Your four round blitzkriegs of stabs, frags and bashes aren't the meta anymore. Learn the new one and quit whining.


^ this is kams target market. No wonder shit is so fked up.

Now that we know Kams target market is the 10 people and their bots left playing. Anyways my wife will be happy knowing I’ll never get absorbed back into Arctic again. Since I’m not your target market along with 90% of the playerbase.

Hey Bryton,

I happen to know for a fact that there are more than 10 people still playing. There are 10 people still active in one clan Discord channel I'm in alone. But YOU aren't playing anymore and that makes the game more fun for me so I'm okay with that.

Seriously though 90% of the people I know who have permanently quit have done so for three main reasons:

1. Tired of collecting gear and then being chased off the mud by people with superior numbers and play time.
2. Family commitments outside of this game that limit their play-time.
3. Boredom with the game after many years playing it.

And of course some combination of the above. New content helps somewhat with #3 but only rules changes help with #1. #2 is a problem that can't be solved by the game (except maybe to offer some subset of playable gear that doesn't decay when you log on once a week to play so that these people can still enjoy their play time).

As for people quitting because the mud became no_pk or "care bear", I literally only know two or maybe three people via this forum who have claimed that as their reason for quitting and I couldn't be happier with their choice.
