    I find this disturbing that MA wants to get rid of NPC interaction.
    Did any one say they wanted to automate their game so they don't have to go have a conversation, or have the choice to start a mission or not?
    What is it that makes them want to get rid of NPC interaction?

    I did

    Finding NPCs is annoying as anything and some of them are really far out or in really random places. Last thing i want to do is stop my hunt to go track down some NPC (sometimes which i can't remember where they are) so that i can complete my mission and start a new one.

    It has always been annoying to me that some hunting missions can be starting from the terminal, some I have to track down an NPC and some don't even exist yet. Without any clear indication of which one is which.

    This should be a great new edition to the hunting system and much needed imo.

    The only new NPC for mission should be a exchange NPC for the not finished missions, so we can exchange our effort, time and money we spend to the missions we have not done within the graceperiod, to get a reward in % of the killpoints we have.
    I exacly know, that i not get finished some of my missions with bigger creatures within the grace period. Then i be miner and hunter, so i would be forced to do only hunt, so i may dont loose a mission.

    Please MA, think about this, it would be a fair way to change the mission system, without making a lot players unhappy. I don't think , that MA love to make a lot ppl angry, and in same case loosing trust to the player base.

    This NPC, for exchange the not done missions, is not a hard thing to code, and i be sure it would give us more trust to the game. I much welcome the new mission system, exectp even, that i will loose my not done missions.

    Thanks!

    It's not automating the game, it's improving gameplay and cutting out time spent travelling between one point and another for no other purpose.

    Yes, loads of people have been saying they wanted that, for years.

    Thumbs Down

    For the people not playing only for the gambling thrill, this is just killing the game a little bit more.

    What about meaningful quests , missions and storylines ?

    Someday, all players will be gone and only will remain a few addicted gamblers out here...the ones that are already denied entrance from real casinos.

    If you want to retain the thrill of the iron missions, simply paste the following into a text file and save it on your desktop:

    Wow, great job! You really are quite the hunter. Here's your reward.

    We still need you to do more though. This time we need you to kill XXX more creatures. I'll give you an even bigger reward this time. Are you in?
    Then, any time you finish a mission stage, just fly back to a TP on the other side of the continent, open the text file, close it again, and fly back to where you were hunting before.

    Hey presto! You've now got exactly as much storyline as the current iron missions.

    This is exactly how they killed off EQ2..
    When it stops being a game it will be ended.
    Besides that what is MAs motivation ... Surely not to appease lazy people who don't even like MMOs?
    After thinking about it.. they want to make sure you do the Iron missions to keep the money rolling in.
    If they had some sort of compensation or a better motivation to do it would be a bit more genuine.
    Like after you kill 5000 Arulis you get a few million Shrapnell?
    This is just force fed BS I don't like it.

    Many of us played for years before missions existed.

    I always saw them as a bonus, but you can do your own thing without missions, plenty of players hunt non-mission mobs for example, let alone considering the miners and the crafters...

    There really is no need for 'compensation' they have already given us a year to complete the incomplete ones - surely that is enough?

    Not agree with that.

    Wouldn't the easiest solution be to be grandfathered in with your current tier of the mission.. and once you complete that tier you go onto the new system?

    Not everyone can play every waking moment. I don't grumble often... but I honestly feel that losing your current progress after the very short grace period is over sucks and does not entice me to want to play.

    Maybe you'll dazzle me when the new system comes out and I'll change my mind..but until then. It's a hard no from me.

    It would be easier, but I think the one of the key points MA made was that the current system isn't designed for tons of avatars to have dozens of open missions. The explosion of Iron Missions, and tracking all of them for so many avatars is causing problems - thus their desire to get rid of them sooner rather than later.

    The new system as described is going to handle all of this differently as it is intended to track everything for everyone. As long as the old missions linger, they will continue to have their negative impact, so the change from 1 month to 1 year is a trade-off (and a welcome one), but leaving them open forever would force MA to maintain the legacy missions forever.
