I don't see this thread as being very helpfull.

Since you asked for player opinions, here goes mine.

I recently mentioned somewhere on Discord my discontent over what has been going on on the East Continent, after Perleone got told not to intervene in Caligus vs Shadowdale.
(It might be worth saying I only unpaused my character a few months(?) back so I don't grasp the full what's-going-on yet)

However, I was saying this not because it wasn't justified. With the new rules and all, it just might have been justified to tell us off. I was discontent that they have to resort to these things to keep the game fun for everyone.

On BT I was on the other end of the spectrum, being a member of Thalmarkin and being ganged up on by almost the entire continent. They intervened as well.
So from my point of view, they are doing things consistently and not just to screw over one party or the other they don't like.

On top of that, and trust me on this, they do not like to do this. They are not getting up in the morning hoping they can intervene some more and get some more people complaining about them.
From what I know, they would much rather like to be the silent worker bees in the background which they have been doing for so many years.
I've been on that end as well, in the Dev team to help where I can. It is hours, days,.. that they put in every week and month, to keep this game running.
What they get in return? A bunch of people whining about not being able to win Battlemaster.

Rules are there for everyone. Abide by them as much as you know how to. Occasionally someone will break the rules. But in that case I hope it to be by accident and not the backroom scheming like we often find it to be done now.

This game can be a lot less toxic if the players themselves just act like it's a game, and not a contest to get the most points or wins.
And yes, I've been on the losing side as well. I've been on the 'whining' side as well. I'll have to adapt as well.

Just my 2 cents.

To be honest, I very much like the idea becomes it would be much more realistic.
And I like people who would enjoy the game, even then.

However, for me it wouldn't be an enhancement but more like an obstacle to keep playing.

Feature Requests / Re: Everyone in this Realm - Message Option

The only downside I was able to come up with, was also denied by my own brain 5 seconds later.

Was thinking it could be an exploit to see all characters (of an enemy for example) within your own borders.
But you can easily look that up through 'Realm and Regions'.

However, not everyone does that, so a sneak attack might become exposed by these 'realm wide messages'.

I know, far fetched. It wouldn't be a reason to not include this sort of option. It's just what popped into my head when first reading this.

Title:Add note that ruler step down reason is shared to all rulers on the continent

Summary: I remember this being a small issue when people did not realize that when stepping down as Ruler, they did not only address their own realm with their 'reason'. They address all rulers on the continent with that reason. Sometimes it might be good not to share everything, when knowing this.

Details: On the StepDown page for 'Ruler', simply add a line in Italics or whatver to mention that their reason will be broadcasted to all Rulers of the continent.

Benefits: More transparancy, as some in the past shared some details that not all rulers should be knowing. Little coding effort.

Possible Downsides/Exploits: None whatsoever.

Feature Requests / Game Announcements continent wide

Make Game Announcements continent wide

While we have the News Ticker, certain game updates should be sent continent wide. Perhaps it's best to just send out a golden admin message stating 'There is a new Game Announcement' or something? Or at least that you can find something new in the News Ticket. Certainly for the ones containing Updates to the game functionality.

Certain new features, fixes or updates actually influence live choices of people. My FR comes from the fact that we had a Duke abandoning a region being TO'ed. While I agree with the feature and the fact that without it, it would be an exploit, the player in fact never saw the Game Announcement before she did the job.

People would be informed. I happen to miss some updates as well because it's just not always clear (certainly for people not actively using the Forum).

Possible Downsides/Exploits:
Well, you would need to code that in somehow, to be automatically triggering a message to all continents. Perhaps some would mark it as being clutter and don't need it?
News Ticker is probably there for a reason, to keep it out of the game directly. So that's a thing, perhaps.

Love to hear other people's views on this.

20 out of 30 Thalmarkin members are active on Discord?

Mate, you need me to point out where they are. Because I've been talking to the same 5-6 people this entire time..
Don't make things up please.

For the rest, I don't mind you having your opinion. Some things must be said, I agree with that. And I'm not further going to comment on that because I have not been around (paused) when all of this bullying happened in the first place.

Feature Requests / Re: Prestige and Positions
« on: May 07, 2020, 08:48:35 AM »
I would like it much more if it was treated seperately from prestige.


1. Because rewriting the entire prestige-mechanism will not be happening anytime soon (Delvin/Vita, correct me if I'm wrong)
2. Because many people actually like getting h/p in things like battles, tournaments, ... Taking that away is just something I wouldn't do
3. Why can it not exist as a seperate metric, apart from prestige? Like you need the minor requirements + 'Support' metric, based on the things you described.

Just my thoughts  :)


I see no reason why this shouldn't be approved.

I'm not playing trader or bankers at this point, but I don't see why this shouldn't be approved.

Sounds like perfect reasoning for more interaction.

The proposal quoted by Vita sounds appropriate.

Am I the only one who thinks of AoE when reading this?  ;D

Priests bringing them relics to their temple so that they can produce gold (was that it?).

Feature Requests / Re: Add link to character details

Feel free to add any other place where a link could be useful. I happened to stumble upon this one, but I'm sure it's not the only one.
Instead of needing to create a Feature Request for every single one of them, we could just make a list here.
