    Hello again from the Community Relations Manager

    There should be an AMA thread/subforum on this site. Then weekly the devs will answer the previous weeks postings. The community manager would be responsible for gathering and summarizing the questions. No need for the devs to read/respond to a dozen questions on botting. I'm not optimistic...

    Suggestion: Give Land Area Operators a Viable Tool Box.

    Maybe these exists but in case they don't: 1. Most mobs killed. This focuses on equipment and skill and reduces luck/chance. 2. Fewest deaths during event. May help revitalize the healer/support profession. 3. Event participation token. Given to those who pre register and...

    Proposed new attachment for “tanking”

    Perfect for a Mindforce chip. MF user can cast Aggro on a player then switch to healer chip.

    Suggestion: Loot 3.0 ideas

    Your numbers don't add up. Even if you spent $1000 on equipment and $5000 on ammo, cycling at a 90% rate would total about $50,000. Not 250k. Unless my math is wrong of course.

    More latency and "failed" since last VU ?

    I don't think that a: “... Sci-Fi MMORPG, Multi-World, Real Cash Economy Experience” Real Cash Economy game should have any lag. But that's just me.

    Sweating. The Present and Future.

    What MA has done well is to require large amounts of sweat to spawn boss mobs. There should be more of this. Also, MA should add sweat in increasing amounts to the EP blueprints with EP1 require a small amount of sweat and EPx requiring a factor of 10 more (whatever the max EP BP is.) EP1 1...

    Achievement: Highest HP avatar ingame and the story

    Great write up! My question is, what is the setup to gain skills the fastest? Using level appropriate gear (what does this even mean?) against level appropriate mobs? If I'm level 30 sniper should I be using a level 30 rifle hunting level 30 mobs?

    Anxiety and COVID-19

    Just remember that crowds are bad but just being outside isn't. So try to walk for an hour outside if you can. Maybe walk or adopt a dog. Donate your time to a local animal shelter. Be outside during this time. It will help. Above all, remember that your life has worth and value. This virus...

    How to convince players to come back to EU?

    All MA needs to do is add 0.00 TT items to the loot pool. It wouldn't cost them anything and would add variety and excitement to hunting.

    Do we get a 'certificate' when we purchase a share?

    I think we will be able to teleport to planets before too long. Maybe a 5 PED charge to TP to Next Island or Arkadia.

    Star Citizen has over 400 staff and the game is still in 'alpha' state after 5 yrs (???) of development. Everquest and Everquest 2 has over 40 staff members combined and they put out 1 big update per year for each title. I think game development takes more labor and time than you think.

    So a coder probably makes $75,000 year including fringe benefits. So you're talking about paying 10 coders for a year. That's not very much money at all when you consider you have to pay people to do work.
