    Suggestion: Loot 3.0 ideas

    Most people did and most people did it wrong or did not knew how to interpret the data, because most people fail and lose money. I am not saying that if you do it like I said you will do better than them. You will be limited by your budget, your preconceptions and your intellect, as all people...

    Suggestion: Loot 3.0 ideas

    I do not know how loot system works. No one knows. If nothing works, maybe hunting is just a bad idea and you should try something else. In my post, I said that you should try different things and stop doing what fails. Use all the options that are available. Since I do not know how the loot...

    Suggestion: Loot 3.0 ideas

    Each loses what it can afford. Whatever they do with the loot system, the success or failure will have and exponential effect, resulting in you losing fast or wining consistently. Your purpose should be to understand what you are doing, how the game works and how you can play to break even...

    Yog Pet Buff Issue

    I was active at some point. I still have my avatar, but I do not play anymore. I do not have the time to get involved in EU. I enter the game once in a while... I may deposit at some point to have some fun and see how the game works these days. I have no idea at this time how the buffs work and...

    Yog Pet Buff Issue

    The law is not as simple as that. The law is that there has to be some quality control for a service you provide. As a customer you have some rights. In EULA is said that the game is provided "as is". The player played it "as is". You can't just enforce arbitrary rules and not face some...

    Imagine everyone have 100% TT returns, would the game survive?

    Scaling a project is not easy. The fact that they waste money on things that failed... if those things would have been a success you would have praised them. In order to have success you fail many many times. Failing is part of the success.

    Yog Pet Buff Issue

    As a player, all you do is to maximize your efficiency. Is there somewhere in ToS that you can't get more than 30% buff? Is this something a player should know? Why is that? I am not saying they should or could claim ignorance, but it is not my job as a player to know what the upper limit for...

    That is not true. More people means higher server load, more people on support cases, they will need more people to work in just about all departments, so the expenses will go up a lot. Another important aspect is that the bigger the team becomes on a software development, the harder is to...

    The purpose of a company is to make maximum profit. They know exactly how loot should work for that to happen. They have the data. We can only speculate on what may or may not work. If it is not in their interest, they would not do it. For a company, take less money === incompetent management.

    MA is a company. They are in business to make money. As much as they can from whatever they can. You want them to make money from pie in the sky. The system they have works rather well. They will not change it too much, simply because of the old saying. If something works, don't fix it. From...

    Yog Pet Buff Issue

    ToS tend not to hold up in court as you may think they will. Remember Runescape trials? If you lose money in a game because of some unfair system or some arbitrary rule, you can sue, whatever the ToS may say. You can claim you were wronged and a good lawyer can make a case out of it. In games...

    Yog Pet Buff Issue

    MA is right with this approach. It can and should compensate the people who were wronged. It can not however punish the people who used the pet in the instance. First of all, if you try to ban someone for that, in a court they have a good argument that it is not their job to know if the buff was...

    Hello from MindArk's new Community Relations Manager!

    Welcome! Maybe you can make the thing people love to hate into the thing they love to love. Then again, it is not a job for just one man.
